“Most people assume that meditation is all about stopping thoughts, getting rid ofemotions, somehow controlling the mind. But actually its … about stepping back, seeing thethought clearly, witnessing it coming and going.” -Andy Puddicombe
“All it takes is 10 mindful minutes” Andy engages the audience by asking how many of the people in the crowd can remember the last time they spent 10 minutes to do absolutely nothing. This includes texting, emails, phone, t.v, worryin g etc. He explains how that is the very factor that leads to peoples stress.
Andy did a great Job capturing my my attention in the beginning by his professionalapproach and just the way he led me to believe he was a wise man. His voice was verypositive and vibrant.
Andy also did some prettytalented juggling. He used theballs to show the different waysyour brain could be doingredundant things. In myopinion, it was a very effectiveway to capture my attention.
Andy is calm, positive and tothe point. He knows how tocapture the attention of theaudience and used lifeexperiences and personalhappenings to verify whathes speaking of.
These are traits that Ithink will benefit anyoneserious about their lifeand want to conductthemselves in an engagingyet informative way
Andy’s Juggling wasboth exciting andplayed a great role inhis symbolism of themind working. Ithink that was agreat way to capturethe attention of thelisteners.
This is a great example of someone living in the now and enjoyinglife and nature
Although Andy Puddicombehad a great presentation and isan awesome speaker, I feel thatSir Ken Robinson caught myattention with his humor andjokes. He did not take it overboard leaving this presentationprofessional and informative.
CompareI think it is very obviousthat both speakers hadvery effective ways ofengaging and spreadingknowledge and ideas
Funny, serious, tells the story of others, much experience in life and credibilitys. Made Symbolism SacrificesQuestions theAudience Very happy and wise
