Meditation Experience in Vietnam

BY TOM CHRISTIE
@ VOL 9 ON OCT 01, 2016

We know you're stressed, but there are better ways to deal with that than killing your boss/client or burning down your school. Meditation is one of them and to help you get the ball rolling, we have invited a very special guest to Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 9.

Meet Tom Christie, whose meditation practise and the quest for peace and zen has taken him on several retreats in places you probably haven't heard of, both in Vietnam and elsewhere. He's going to talk about how he got into meditation practise.

So take a deep breath, exhale... and see you on Saturday October 1st, 2016.
