Experience of Speaking at TEDx McMaster
On March 3, 2013, I had the privilege of speaking at TEDx McMaster University as an invited speaker. I chose to speak on topic of paying attention and the title of my talk was 'Pay Attention, Live Tastefully'. It is premised on a simple fact that paying attention, even it is something uncomfortable, enhance the quality of our life and helps us in developing positive mental qualities such as joy, happiness, generosity.

Rewind, Relax, Revitalise We carry a lot of stress in our body these days. This stress may start to manifest itself in various aches and pains and, worse, may even bubble into serious diseases if left alone to exacerbate. Spending sometime in body scan or yoga nidra can be greatly helpful in resetting the body's rhythm and allowing it to ward off the negative consequences of stress.

Play it or download it to your portable device to harvest the benefits of being with your body and developing a deep awareness of body sense. If you feel that it helped you, please take a moment to drop us a line here.
