Transforming leadership to achieve a culture of oneness through Maum Meditation

It is well understood that organizational culture can drive performance, success, and sustainability of health care systems (Kane-Urrabazo, 2006). American Organization of Nurse Executives (2007) Guiding Principles statement on Culture of Mutual Respect and Recognition, which specifically delineated the need to:  1) bridge gaps and barriers created by professional, cultural and generational differences; 2) cultivate sincere, authentic relationships that are grounded in trust and respect; and, 3) encourage a sense of equity and facilitate shared appreciation of nursing and support service jobs. 

Nurse leaders are instrumental in influencing the culture of their organization by inspiring new visions and priorities for nursing practice. The author will explain and discuss on how to possibly achieve oneness in multiplicity of diverse cultures apparent in many organizations and also state the foreseeable positive impact of culture of oneness on organizations.  By discovering, knowing and becoming each individual’s true nature or self, the collective organizational culture achieved then can bridge gaps and barriers existing in working relationships.

Maum meditation is not associated with any religion and is a relatively new form of meditation which was started in 1996 by Woo Myung (2003).  Research studies on Maum meditation also demonstrated various improvements and benefits, such as a reduction in stress, improvement in relationships, emptying of mind, improved health (Korea Association of Statistics and Information, 2008); improved self-respect and self-confidence in children (Yi, 2009); reduction in aggression with adolescent children (Yi, 2009); and beneficial effects of Maum meditation on university students (Jung, 2009; Kim, 2009).
