Mindful or Mind Full? Serenity or Stress? by Ajahn Brahm
Mon. 15 May 2017, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm AEST
Description of the talk
We can all struggle with the busy mind syndrome; money woes, raising kids, creating endless “to do lists” and worrying about our future and how we can get ahead with more time, more career and more life!
These mind filling thoughts drive us to emotional and physical exhaustion when all we need to do is sit and relax in this moment.
But how do we do this?
In this talk Ajahn Brahm presents the power of being mindful in the present and how this can bring peace and alleviate stress in our everyday lives.
