In this interview Melli and Dan talk about why focus is the key to excellence in any field and why we need to be aware of the effects of technology on our brains.

Dan speaks about how we can make HH the Dalai Lama’s vision for a compassionate world a reality and how we can become more conscious consumers and better custodians of the planet.

    Dear Hannah Perkins,

    This is my favourite meditation from the summit, of course, that may change but I will always come back to it. And I paid my dues even though I am looking for work, just so I can meditate with you and Melli every so often.

    A big thank you and if I am ever in Oz again I will look you up for a real life go.

    Thank you with a smile.
