Establishing Regular Meditation 

with Karuna Priya

Karuna Priya has been a Buddhist monk for 15 years and is founder of Akanista Mindfulness, offering mindfulness training and support.  We are delighted to welcome him to The Mindful Living Show, where he will share his thoughts on how to establish a regular practice in your daily life. Why not try out Karuna’s guided meditation by clicking on the image below or come to his workshop at the show.

Life is busy...people are often stressed, anxious, worried, disconnected and confused. Meditation is the last thing you would think about. But, in fact, this is just what you need to get your life back in order.

We are delighted to welcome Mantra Jewellery to The Mindful Living Show. Their philosophy is about creating inspiration, positivity and optimism, to empower people to live life to the full.

Wearing your jewellery acts as a prompt to bring to mind your mantra, to pull you back into the present moment.
