Unplugged but Switched On by Ajahn Brahm
Sat. 13 May 2017, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm AEST
About the talk
With all the wonderful technology we have at our disposal which has helped us connect with others; do you feel like you're constantly living an “online” life?
Continually checking social media and emails have you ever asked yourself how your “online" life makes you feel?
Does this bring peace and happiness or fill you with anxiety and negative emotions? Can you switch on by switching off?
In this talk Ajahn Brahm will be sharing with us the power of plugging into Mindfullness to help restore our sense of inner peace among the midst of our everyday technology driven life.
