QCC THRIVE SERIES Combining Mindfulness, Wellness and Community for Joyful Living - Mindfulness and Discipline - Balancing our Activities of Daily Life 

"Mindfulness" is often associated with sitting meditation, focus, calming, concentration, or a passive awareness of feelings and thoughts. Mindfulness in a deeper sense is awareness of the causes and effects our behaviour of our body, speech, and mind amid our daily life activities. With awareness of our human condition comes an ability to skillfully arrange our activities in a manner of which, we wisely and compassionately engage with our environment and other people. David will share his experience of how to use mndfulness to understand our mind and thus balance our daily life activities.
For the past 15 years, David Listen has trained in the Chan/Zen tradition of meditation and mindful way of life. For 11 of those years he was a monk, living a life of discipline and service and mentoring people along their path of self-exploration. David Listen traveled around the world and studied closely with Zen masters, leading and engaging in numerous meditation retreats, group coaching, and one-on-one mentoring.
