How can we be mindful in everyday life?

Mindfulness has entered the mainstream in recent years, but most of us still think of it more as a meditation practice than a constant way of living.

At this special event, the legendary "father of modern mindfulness" Jon Kabat-Zinn will help us reconnect with how to cultivate moment-to-moment awareness - the essential life skill which helps us pay deeper attention to our mind, body and heart.

Rather than seeing mindfulness as an occasional practice, Jon will help us recognise that life itself is our meditation practice. And you can learn to make this the way you actually live your everyday life.

Jon will share how to be more "at home with yourself", starting with a simple willingness to stay in the present moment and just see what happens. Because every single precious moment is the only moment you actually have.

This awareness helps you to 'befriend' your mind, let go of negative self-talk and recognise that "there's more right with you than wrong with you". You can then also discover that there is no such thing as "myself" in isolation. We are all part of something bigger.

By joining this unique live conversation with Jon, you'll learn that you're a remarkable human being with amazing capacities for love, wisdom, connection and contributing to making the world a better place - or for whatever it is that you most love.
