Hong Kong is one of the world’s most stressful cities. Not only is it one of the world’s most expensive for housing and living, it tops the list as Asia’s most depressed city with high rates of divorce and suicide. Seven out of 10 Hong Kong residents dislike their jobs. Yet there is hope. Ajahn Brahm discussed how even busy and time-starved Hong Kong professionals can find peace of mind and calm in the chaos.


Born in London and a graduate of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he studied Theoretical Physics, Ajahn Brahm is the Abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery in Australia and the Spiritual Advisor to Bodhinyana International Foundation in Hong Kong. A Theravada Buddhist monk for over 40 years, he has given talks at Facebook, Google, Linkedin and the United Nations. He is also a prolific author, with his publications translated into 24 languages. These include: Opening the Door of Your Heart; Mindfulness, Bliss and Beyond; The Art of Disappearing; Good? Bad? Who Knows?; Kindfulness; and Bear Awareness.
