Abstract: This paper reports two studies that examine how an organization might enable more productive work practices by encouraging the expression of its employees spiritual selves in an eastern context. Study 1 shows that people who regularly practice meditation have higher workplace spirituality scores than people who do not regularly practice meditation. Study 2 reports a quasiexperimentalstudy in which people practiced insight meditation. The data did not reveal a direct effect for the meditation,however spirituality does relate to work performance. Moreover, the practice of meditation is also found to partially mediate the relationship between workplace spirituality and work performance.
