Following the success of our previous Mindfulness event in 2017, we are delighted to welcome Ben Harrison and Jamie Rylett back to ESCP Europe's London campus.

In this free session, our two experts will show you how to unleash your full potential by using meditation to:

  • Reduce stress, anxiety and depression
  • Create abundant energy through manipulation of the nervous system
  • Be happier and live in the present
  • Boost your immune system

They will also teach five ways to bio hack your meditation practice!

The class will include simple yoga techniques, so please come dressed in light, loose-fitting clothes that allow you to stretch. We have a limited number of mats available for participants, so if you are able to bring along your own it would be greatly appreciated.

Places at the event are strictly limited, so please book in advance via We are happy to welcome all ESCP Europe students, alumni, staff and faculty, as well as external guests.

About Mindfulness at ESCP Europe

Wellbeing and Mindfulness are raising considerable interest within companies, and a rapid adoption of mindfulness training in the private sector to improve wellbeing and performance is underway.

Mindfulness is the act of increasing real-time awareness of physiological, mental, and environmental events without imposing judgments on their quality or meaning. The benefits of Mindfulness training are many and include reduced anxiety, improved cognition, and fewer mental distractions. Mindfulness is a practice that asks us to think outside the box.

In particular, a number of law schools (such as Harvard and Columbia) and law firms already teach Mindfulness tools in order to improve concentration and reduce unconscious bias in a criminal law context. Moreover, companies such as Unilever, Google and Salesforce are using Mindfulness training for their employees to improve leadership skills and collaboration.

ESCP Europe is active on this side, too. A Chair in Wellness Management and Performance will be launched in Paris this year. Here in London, we are happy to advance our commitment to mindfulness with the second in our series of related events for the 2017/18 academic year.
