Ian Gawler Book Launch at St Michael's
When: Sunday 25 August, 12:00pm Where: Waratah Room, Level 1, St Michael's Place
Ian Gawler has written a brilliant new book on meditation. Clear, precise, accessible, it clarifies what meditation really is and how to do it. Blue Sky Mind is a book for these times and will help many to experience the fullness of what Meditation has to offer.
Meditation provides a reliable means to let go of the busyness, to regain clarity and balance, think clearly once again and find inner peace and contentment.
St Michael’s is fortunate to have Ian, a St Michael’s medallion recipient, involved in the service on Sunday 25th August. A book signing and Q and A session will be held after the service to allow for Ian to share his insights and experience with us.
