Dadi Janki ::: Instant Calm FOR THOSE WHO THINK THEY CANíT

How calm do you stay in the car? in the kitchen? at college ? at work? with the neighbours? with the kids? with the system? ...

How calm do you stay in the car? in the kitchen? at college ? at work? with the neighbours? with the kids? with the system? ...

There are so many things that so quickly disturb our peace. Before we know it, our mind is racing, emotions raging and the brakes simply don’t work. Is there a solution?

Dadi Janki, a remarkable 97 year old woman of wisdom, has spent her whole life cultivating the power of peace both inside herself and in millions around the world. Tonight she will share how it’s possible to achieve, not just instant, but sustainable inner calm. How to live a life where fear, self doubt, worry and more don’t get the better of us.

In the early 1990s, Dadi’s wisdom and contribution to peace were formally recognized when she was invited to be one of ten ‘Keepers of Wisdom’; a group of eminent spiritual leaders convened at large UN gatherings to provide a spiritual perspective on critical areas of concern in the world. She is Head of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University. Although, today Dadi is on the world stage, she too has faced life’s trials and tribulations. Her words therefore are practical. Her presence is heartfelt.

Dadi will be in conversation with Dr Sarah Eagger and Arnold Desser. Sarah is a consultant psychiatrist and honorary senior clinical lecturer at Imperial College, London. Arnold, who is an educational consultant, has a background in family therapy and has published on the history of film. The evening will be interspersed with live music, reflective time and an opportunity for questions.

This event is not suitable for children.
