Mindfulness and Beyond: Meditation is the Next Big Thing.
with Yoga Monk Dada Nabhaniilananda
A Three Part Workshop:
- The Benefits of Meditation: Recent research has legitimized meditation as a powerful tool for stress relief and brain enhancement. As a result ‘mindfulness’ programs have spread through a host of corporations. This epidemic has even reached the British Parliament!
- What's Missing from this Story? Ancient wisdom practices like meditation arose out of the search for universal love, truth and enlightenment. Isn't meditation more than just mindfulness and stress relief?
- An Experience Beyond Mindfulness: Meditation doesn’t have to feel like homework. Dada uses music, mantra and a unique spiritual technique to let you taste for yourself how meditation can feel like falling in love.
