lessons from a buddhist monk
3.30pm, Saturday 26th January
How can we stay calm in a busy world? What would happen if we stopped trying to be perfect? Haemin Sunim is one of the most influential Zen Buddhist teachers in the world with over 1 million followers on social media and a series of bestselling books. Here he shares his wisdom on everything from finding balance in your life, self acceptance and self care, to dealing with love and relationships, and how mindfulness can help us in each. Speaking directly to the anxieties that have become part of modern life, Haemin’s simple compassionate teachings transcend religion, borders and ages. Born in South Korea and educated at Berkeley, Harvard, and Princeton, he received formal monastic training in Korea and taught Buddhism at Hampshire College in Massachusetts.
Haemin Sunim’s new book, Love for Imperfect Things is published by Penguin in January 2019. He will be signing copies after the event.
This event is included in our Saturday Afternoon and Weekend Headliner tickets.
