31 May - Why Suffer? Approaches to calming the mind and healing

This event is being held by the The Janki Foundation. A UK charity promoting spirituality in health care. It supports healthcare professionals through values-based dialogue and training, and contributes to general wellbeing through inspirational books, CDs and lectures.

Dadi Janki, a world renowned spiritual leader, has worked for more than 70 years
to acquire inner strength and resilience, linked to maintaining humility and an
attitude of giving to others in the face of adversity. Having faced several
life-threatening illnesses, she is a practical example of how mental mastery releases
enormous potential in our ability to create our own state of well-being as well as
strengthen our capacity to uplift and serve others. At the age of 96, she continues
to inspire millions! Dadi Janki is President of the Janki Foundation, and Administrative
Head of the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University.

    Whilst being an unusual first meetup, the topic and conversation was highly stimulating and informative.
    Their was a big audience for the presentation as well - which is a good sign. B-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
