Join intercontinental world-record marathon runner and Kundalini Yoga teacher Doug Wilson in conversation and practice with Meditation Australia president Asher Packman as they share their personal stories and take you through the learnings and experiences behind Doug's newly released book "Kundalini Running".
Taking place at the wonderful Urban ProJuice cafe in Albert Park, the afternoon begins with an intimate Q&A session before moving into an active workshop. Asher will explore heart-consciousness from both a scientific and spiritual viewpoint, realigning our hearts and minds, getting us back in touch with our intuition and inner wisdom, as well as providing an excellent tool for managing stress and anxiety.
Doug will then conduct a session designed to develop our understanding of self-awareness through the fundamentals of Kundalini yoga & meditation. This will stimulate the body, mind, and spirit to bring us toward a specific physical and mental outcome. His session will end with deep relaxation and a group healing.
We will close with an open discussion, along with tea and raw treats from the wonderful people at RawLoveSuperfoods.
This is an event not to be missed, with an opportunity to get up close and personal with two men who have overcome adversity and used it to transform their own lives. They each share the passion of using their experiences to be of benefit to others, in showing people how to naturally unlock their highest potential.
Doug Wilson overcame a life threatening brain tumour in 2013 and used Yoga & Meditation to support his rehabilitation. In just over 12 months after suffering extensive cranial nerve damage, meningitis and leaving hospital in a wheelchair he became the first person to run 7 competitive marathons on the 7 continents in under 7 days.
Doug now teaches these valuable techniques for maintaining health, wellbeing and coping with stress in the modern world. His scientific knowledge toward yoga is backed up by practical, real world experiences that make his classes and workshops informative while opening the body, mind and spirit.
After more than 20 years working with the world’s leading brands as a communications senior executive, the sudden loss of his sister and mother, along with a chronic blood cancer diagnosis, led Asher Packman to significantly shift gears.
Asher is now a qualified mindset coach and meditation teacher, as well as a certified HeartMath and Wim Hof Method instructor. He has further qualifications in neurolinguistic programming (NLP), geobiology, epigenetics and the social psychology of sport. Asher is also the current president of Meditation Australia, the national peak body representing meditation and meditation teachers.
