CULTIVATE HAPPINESS THROUGH THE ART OF MINDFULNESS | ACHARYA DAS SPEAKING TOUR

Thu 26th October | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

THE AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL OF MEDITATION AND YOGA IS PLEASED TO SPONSOR A SECOND AUSTRALIAN SPEAKING TOUR BY WORLD RENOWNED GUEST ACHARYA DAS

Please RSVP: Facebook | Eventbrite

We are all wanting and seeking happiness, it is what motivates and drives us. So with everything the modern world has on offer, from advances in technology to “unique and exciting” experiences, why is happiness still so hard to find? What role does mindfulness play in our search for happiness? What is the true meaning of mindfulness and is our mind our friend or our enemy? What is our relationship to our mind and how can we exercise control over the mind to help become truly happy?

Acharya das will explore these important questions and draw on ancient yoga wisdom to examine how mindfulness and happiness are intimately connected. Importantly, he will also discuss how mindfulness can be used as a tool in our daily lives to live a more meaningful, peaceful and happy existence.

“The mind is something that we should use, and not be used by”
~ Acharya das.

Free event – Donations welcome.

Event includes guided meditation, kirtan, Q&A time at the end of the talk and refreshments.
