Unlocking the Power of Meditation as a Technology of Change
Hello! I am Flavio A. Geisshuesler, the Khyentse-Macready Senior Lecturer for Tibetan Buddhism at the University of Sydney. I'm a trisector leader, seamlessly intertwining the realms of university teaching, scientific research, and business consulting. Whether you're a student, a fellow academic, a business leader, or someone intrigued by the power of meditation, I invite you to join me in exploring the synergies between these worlds. Let's embark on a journey of discovery and growth, leveraging the wisdom of the past and the innovations of the future. Connect with me to delve into dialogues, collaborations, or to learn more about my work and how it can impact you or your organization.
My academic path has taken me from the historic halls of European universities through the serene monasteries of the Himalayas to the dynamic waves of the Tasman sea. Active as a university lecturer on four continents, I primarily teach courses on languages and cultures, particularly in the Asian contexts of India and Tibet. A hyperpolyglot, I am fluent in over a dozen languages and really enjoy providing my students with boundary-transcending perspectives on life.
I completed dual PhDs, one on continental philosophy and the European intellectual history of the 19th and 20th centuries, and another on meditation traditions of Indo-TIbetan Buddhism. My postdoctoral research focused primarily on contemplative practices, innovating an approach that spans various disciplines, blending classical humanistic perspectives with the latest in cognitive sciences. My scholarly work has been funded by the governments of the United States and Switzerland, a variety of prestigious private and academic institutions, and it includes numerous peer-reviewed articles and two monographs.
Moving beyond academia by completing an Executive MBA from HEC Paris, a Coaching Certificate from INSEAD, and a certificate for Leadership and Change at and LSE, I am the founder of 3Paradoxes Consulting. Leveraging my knowledge on the languages and cultures of Asia and my expertise in Indo-Tibetan Meditation techniques, I develop out-of-the-box solutions that transcend traditional consulting frameworks. Focusing on the realms of change management, leadership development, and strategy implementation, I unlock the true power of meditation as a dynamic tool for personal and global transformation.
