The practice of mindfulness is about being present and awake to each moment of our daily lives. Teacher Brother Kai Li, a Senior Monastic from Plum Village, is an experienced teacher and enjoys leading retreats and days of mindfulness to large and small gatherings around the world. He shares his experience of mindful living with great humour and depth. Having visited Ireland a few years ago he is delighted to return to Galway.
