What does it feel like to be well & truly conscious? To live in the moment & just be? In a world of distraction & instant gratification, it's hard to stop & appreciate all that we are & all that we have, we are constantly striving for more instead of relishing in what we have.
Set in the garden of Peckham Springs, you will be soaking up sunshine and knowledge in this day of talks. If the weather does turn, there will be adequate covered areas. *A selection of food trucks with vegan & veg options will be available.
Dada Jyotirupananda - A Yogic Monks Guide To Mindfulness

More importantly, he’s been able to help many people find inner peace, without having to give up the world.
