What Pandit Dasa Talks About:

Stress Management for Work-Life Balance
Workplace stress is costing businesses over $300 billion annually and is responsible for absenteeism, employee turnover, errors, and conflicts. Stress can impact ones' physical and emotional health. This presentation will explore the nature of our mind and the factors in our lives that cause us stress. We will learn simple meditation techniques to nourish the mind which will lead to increased focus, greater productivity, improved relationships, and better health. 

Keys to Unlocking and Unleashing the Power of Your Mind
The mind can become our best friend or our worst enemy. It controls our emotional and physical health and thus impacts all aspects of our social and professional interactions. The mind is the cause of our fears, insecurities, and anxieties. An undernourished mind magnifies problems and challenges we encounter and leads us into negative thought processes. By strengthening the muscle of the mind and nourishing its needs, we can see the potential for growth during difficulties and setbacks and develop the self-confidence we need to accomplish our personal and career goals.  

Pandit Dasa will share his journey from being a millionaire in Los Angeles to spending 15 years in monasteries, in New York and India, with little to no money or possessions. He will inspire us with eye-opening insights into the nature of the mind and how we can unlock the power of the mind to help us overcome many of life’s obstacles.

Pandit is a very dynamic speaker. His presentation was very eye-opening and engaging. I felt relaxed and recharged from the meditation techniques. I have been to other stress management presentations...but this was arguably the best.
