Ajahn Santutthi talked to us about finding the calm in the storm of our minds through meditation.  Over thinking can lead to us becoming anxious, we need to live in the moment, not dwell on the past, nor worry about our future.

When we over think, dwell in the past or worry about the future we don't live in the present.  Our minds become tired and so do our bodies.  Meditation can help us clear our mind, live just in this moment and recover some of our energies.

After his talk, Ajahn led us in a guided meditation for approximately 45 minutes.
