Struggling to successfully handle life’s stresses, feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and low in energy and mood?

Struggling to successfully handle life’s stresses, feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and low in energy and mood? This is the new global pandemic – you are not alone. Let us begin 2023 with an evening of exploring solutions with a renowned international motivational speaker, Sister Jayanti and a panel of experts in the field as they help us navigate our way through these difficult times on Wednesday, 25th January 2023 at 5:30 pm at the Durban Jewish Centre.

Sister Jayanti is the Additional Administrative Head of the Brahma Kumaris

We all wish for a more joyful, peaceful, and meaningful future. The question that many are facing is: How do we build ourselves, mentally, emotionally and spiritually so that we can rise above our continuous challenges and live with greater wisdom and contentment?  What are the practices we need to strengthen our inner being?  What is the wisdom we need to shift our mindsets and develop the outlook of greater hope?
