Join thought-provoking and practical individuals share how you can achieve satisfying experiences in all areas of your life by living consciously. Explore, reflect, have AHA moments and laugh.
You will not regret being there on a Saturday.

A better world is one where half the institutions are run by women and half our homes are run by men says Sheryl Sandberg, in her book ‘Lean In.’ Until then, we must appreciate that keeping to a 9 to 5 schedule is not practical in a complex and rapidly changing world. Nor can individuals in leadership positions compartmentalise their hours in a day into equal parts at work and at home. The obsession with work-life balance is not realistic and not a constructive preoccupation to consume ourselves with. The fact is that the quality of life is determined by the way one accomplishes juggling the roles they have. Not in living every role in equal balance.
Learning has never been more fun!
