The world is all-abuzz nowadays about mindfulness. The practice of mindfulness has been shown to exert a powerful influence on one’s health, wellbeing and happiness. However, because it is a practice rather than a good idea, its cultivation is a process, one that of necessity unfolds and deepens over time. Mindfulness is not merely a good idea. It is something that we need to nurture constantly and systematically to derive sincere benefit out of it. Else, it may just remain as a thought in our mind and make us feel more inadequate or out of control.
First published in May 2011, Mindfulness, the life-changing bestseller by Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman celebrates its 10th anniversary in May 2021. Mindfulness was the first book to bring mindfulness practice to a mainstream audience and has become a genre-defining, classic text enjoyed by over a million readers across the world.
In this conversation Mark and Danny will provide us with the guidance to putting ourselves into our own hands by committing to practice mindfulness. They will help us understand how a series of simple practices can be incorporated in our daily lives to free ourselves from anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion.
The Institute of Directors invites you to join this conversation with the noted authors Prof. Mark Williams and Dr. Danny Penman on 12th May. This will be a thought provoking and engaging conversation anchored by Raj Singh, Chairman – Institute of Directors Berkshire and will have a 30 minute session in the end where the audience will be invited to ask their own questions to Mark and Danny.
