Amaranatho - Eating your Karma

The world seems full of conflict, paradoxes, environmental disasters, failing governments and religious extremism. Or does it? What part does your karma have to play in this? How do you use your karma to support your spiritual and personal growth?

Amaranatho will explore his personal journey of how he has related to his karma and how this can lead to a freedom which is not dependent on karma. Two years ago he got toxic poisoning from black mould and his recovery was based on nutritional approach, which included raw food. He made a strong commitment to being vegetarian after being a cowboy/manager on one of South Australia biggest cattle and sheep stations.  This lead him to meditation and for the last fifteen years a Buddhist monk, he disrobed in April of 2015 to concentrate on what he enjoys most, helping and serving people.

His approach is based on exploring what happens in the present moment, with an attitude of play, wrapped in a heart full of love. He will provide practical tools to help explore karma based on mindfulness, integrating spirituality with the personality and allowing it to manifest in daily life.
