You Look Like You Could Use Some Meditation
The Wells Fargo bank tower off Highway 183 in Irving, an ordinary office building in a sea of concrete, isn't the sort of place you'd expect to find a zen-like sanctuary with roots in Gandhi's India. But that's exactly what lies on the top floor: Here, Dr. Om Prakash, an 85-year-old psychologist-turned-life coach who, as a young man, served as an organizer for the Mahatma, counsels patients and coaching clients on how to live a balanced life. Prakash, the subject of this week's feature in the paper version of Unfair Park, teaches all of his therapy patients and coaching clients how to meditate. The practice, he says, is a crucial tool for maintaining physical and mental health.
For a tutorial, check out this video of Prakash leading a guided meditation in his office with local writer Barbara Blanks. And for a meditation on Prakash himself and why psychologists nationwide are converting their practices to life coaching, take a look at the story.
