Join over 8,000 people from around the world and all industries.

We live in a world of distraction.

Your most impactful work requires deep, sustained focus. When you taste what even 30 minutes of flow can do for your creativity, you likely light up on all cylinders. Yet, our modern world of work is broken.

Americans on average check their phones from 80-300 times a day.* 

Canadian researchers estimate that our collective attention span has shrunk by 30% in the past 20 years.*

Our distracted world costs businesses profits and humans their well-being.

But you don’t have to be a stat.

What if you could retrain your brain to focus on your most impactful work day in and day out—even amidst rampant uncertainty? What if you could inspire your focus with more curiosity and wonder?

Enter the Deepen Your Focus & Flow at Work course.

Led by Jeffrey Davis, contributor at PsychologyToday.com and author of TRACKING WONDER: Reclaiming a Life of Meaning & Possibility in a World Obsessed with Productivity (Sounds True, 2021), this course from Insight Timer is designed to help you find focus & flow to retrain your brain.

Each learning module weaves together the neuroscience of focus, the psychology of creativity and meaningful work, concrete examples, and wisdom.

Whether you work remotely or at an office, for your best self, or for a boss, this 10-day audio course offers you evidence-based and time-tested practices designed to help you focus, flow, and flourish.

What type of meditation is taught? 

Each module includes our Wonder Method of meditation that combines insights from psychology, neuroscience, wisdom traditions, and tested trials into an inquisitive, non-religious approach to training the mind for insight and awareness.

Lesson One

Choose Impactful Work Every Day

In this introductory lesson, Jeffrey lays the groundwork for the course. We consider the human need and desire to focus for extended periods of time on meaningful work. Jeffrey also distinguishes why pursuing meaningful work more than only personal happiness leads to flourishing. This lesson helps us apply findings from the science of resilience, so we can discern which work or endeavor we are called to focus upon.
Lesson Two

The Beauty & Fragility of Your Focus

In today’s lesson we acknowledge the factors both in culture and in our brains that make extended focus a challenge. Jeffrey draws from a classic analogy of the mind called The Rider & The Elephant to help you understand your mind’s distractibility and capacity to focus. You’ll test out a concrete exercise to help you start your focus and flow practice.
Lesson Three

Foster Daily Devotion & Deep Purpose

It’s one thing to fall in love with a fantasy you have for life and work. It’s another thing to stand in love and wonder with your most impactful work in the world. In this lesson, Jeffrey shares examples from the people he’s worked with and researched to help us foster a daily sense of devotion to our lives and work. A simple yet profound daily practice will help you remember why you do what you do – and motivate you to focus on it.
Lesson Four

Foster a Mindset of Curiosity & Creativity

Every big idea begets a series of challenges. It’s all in how we face those challenges that distinguishes whether we flourish or flounder. Jeffrey invites us to reframe each day as a quest for meaning amid challenges with what he calls a “questing mindset.” You’ll test out a concrete daily exercise to help you deepen your focus and flow practice.
Lesson Five

Protect & Prime Your Mind for Focus

In this lesson, Jeffrey offers perspective on why we each must be proactive in protecting our fragile focus. With concrete steps and tips, Jeffrey then leads you through how to schedule weekly focus sessions and how to break down complex work and endeavors into achievable tasks that help your mind focus.
Lesson Six

Midway Point: The Focus & Flow Method

This midway lesson helps you pull together the principles and practices so far into a Focus & Flow Method – a simple method that has helped thousands of workers, entrepreneurs, creatives, teachers, and leaders flourish.
Lesson Seven

Reverse Patterns of Disturbance & Distractibility

In this lesson, you will go on a brief journey of your mind so you can redirect your attention with more awareness. Jeffrey uses core metaphors for states of mind we each experience – sustained focus, reactivity, and distraction. These cognitive exercises will help you redirect your attention to sustained focus where your intention aligns with your attention.
Lesson Eight

Bring Wonder & Your Young Genius to Work

If you ever approach your work with a dulled spirit or if ever feel burnt out, this lesson in our fundamental human nature is for you. In this lesson, Jeffrey introduces the biological and adaptive importance of our human experience of wonder. Wonder is a heightened yet fleeting state of consciousness that dissolves our default perception so we can see ourselves, one another, and reality at large anew. This lesson leads us to contemplate what Jeffrey calls your “young genius” and how to bring yours to work with you.
Lesson Nine

Practice Wonder Interventions & the Art of Unfocusing

Sometimes to focus better we need to daydream deliberately and unfocus well. Drawing from stories and current studies in the psychology of focus and creativity, Jeffrey introduces you to two powerful “wonder interventions” – specific practices that induce openness, delight, and insight.
Lesson Ten

Pulling It All Together

In this introductory lesson, Jeffrey lays the groundwork for the course. We consider the human need and desire to focus for extended periods of time on meaningful work. Jeffrey also distinguishes why pursuing meaningful work more than only personal happiness leads to flourishing. This lesson helps us apply findings from the science of resilience, so we can discern which work or endeavor we are called to focus upon.

Focus, flow, and meaningful work go hand-in-hand if…

You’re a leader whose focus is challenged by competing priorities.

You are an employee who has lost your drive to do what you do.

Your Work From Home situation means YOU’RE in charge of managing your attention.

Your most important endeavor, project, or work keeps getting postponed.
