Finding Balance

How can we find balance in our lives?

We tend to think of mindfulness just as a form of meditation - but it can also be an overall approach to daily life, which helps us find balance in our frantic world.

At this special event, meditation teacher and Buddhist writer Vishvapani will explore how we can cultivate mindfulness and expand this to support other helpful habits, including making wise choices, responding to difficult situations and living more ethically.

Vishvapani brings a calm reasonableness and has lots of inspiring ideas to help us improve our mental states and contribute to a more caring society. He'll help you find the courage to cope with uncertainty, overcome challenges and cultivate more inner peace.

This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event on the 19th of June 2024.
