 About the Talk

 Meditation: Mindfulness and More

Meditation is one of the greatest arts in life. The simplest definition of the word meditation is "correct use of the mind". It is the process whereby we gain control over the mind and guide it to a more positive and powerful direction.

If we want to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of life, its complexities and problems, we need to develop the power of the mind to a great extent. When the mind is weak, we lose touch with our true inner peace and power, and start to experience stress and feel trapped. Gradually, this leads to ailments and diseases as our mental, emotional and physical health is thrown out of balance.

Learn how to re-balance the mind, unleash its power and experience the resulting positive effects from Brother Charlie Hogg, a Westerner with over 40 years of meditation practice.

About the Speaker – Brother Charlie Hogg

Brother Charlie Hogg has been a practitioner of meditation for over 40 years. As a senior teacher of the Brahma Kumaris, he has travelled to more than 80 countries as a speaker at international conferences and retreats, sharing simple and easy-to-understand approaches to applying positive values to daily life and experiencing the benefits that follow. From experience, he knows meditation is an extraordinary tool to maintain mental, emotional and physical health in a world increasingly challenged by anxiety, stress, greed and depression.

Charlie grew up in Melbourne and was studying architecture at Melbourne University when he felt an inner urge to travel and follow his interest in culture and philosophy. For the next three years, he travelled through Asia, the Middle East and Europe and during this time lived in many communities, which led him to probe more deeply into life’s most essential questions.

Charlie is currently the National Coordinator (Chief Executive) of Brahma Kumaris Australia, and the Chairman of its Board of Directors. He is currently based in Sydney. He is also an active member of the Brahma Kumaris international coordinating group, responsible for major international projects and the organisation’s global network of centres’ administrative direction. Charlie travels regularly to Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas to speak at international conferences, seminars, retreats and workshops. Click HERE to listen to 2 of his recent talks.
