We’re overwhelmed, we’re too busy, we’re out of balance. Bressie talks about what impact this society has on us, and how we can deal with it by introducing the basics of mindfulness practice and meditation… and you’ll learn how to get off autopilot, how to navigate constant distraction, how to be a more skilful stress-head, how to focus on the parts of our world that are truly wonderful.
