  1. MINDFULNESS: The Power of Mindful Living

    Our mind is the most sophisticated “software” known to mankind - unmatched by even the latest cutting-edge computer program. It allowed us to dominate the animal kingdom and achieve prowess that surpassed our ancestors’ most farfetched aspirations – from circumventing Mars to mapping out the human genome. Yet, it is the very same mind that causes 2 in 10 individuals to suffer from anxiety disorders and 1 in 10 from depression. Our mind, for the most part, will focus on thoughts about the past or the future, and may often resist what is. Most of us are unaware of this and if we are aware, we often mistake our thoughts for reality which is a state of “mindlessness”.  In this keynote, Hani will introduce audiences to the power of mindfulness using evidence based benefits and how to make mindfulness a part of your daily life.
