Mindfulness for difficult times

A half day workshop with Gopi Krishnaswamy

These days we only have to pick up a newspaper or switch on a news channel and we are faced with a lot of divisive news. In such times, it’s easy to be judgemental or even very self critical.

Mindfulness equips you with both awareness and compassion. So you can not only see the negative chatter but also use the right techniques to work with these tough times and the emotions that arise.

In this session, you understand what emotions are, how to improve awareness and compassion and navigate life with greater skill.

Join internationally loved mindfulness teacher Gopi Krishnaswamy as he shares with you his rich experience of over 25 years from boardrooms to monasteries.
