Life: What's In It For Me?

Feed By: Phil Baulch
Subtitle: Phil and special guests
Summary: For most of us, life in the twenty-first century often feels frantic and stressful. Sometimes life feels like one constant drama; as Winston Churchill said "life is just one damn thing after another". What if we could connect with the underlying stillness behind the drama? What if we could develop the ability to witness events with a moment by moment awareness? This is the aim of Mindfulness practice. Listen in every Thursday at 1.00PM as we discuss the troubles of our modern world the economy, energy, the environment, and our declining levels of reported happiness. On the show, we use a short mindfulness exercise to contrast the drama of the time bound, relative world of form with the peace of the timeless, absolute, formless world - the stillness behind the movement.
