About this class

Working in tech is stressful. Ever feel like if you have to answer one more email, you’re gonna pop? Google’s Chief Happiness Officer Chade-Meng Tan says that in just five, 10 minute sessions of meditation people can measurably alter their brain functioning and respond better to stress and be more creative and empathetic.
