How to Find Peace in the Chaos of the Modern World

The talk, although tackling a difficult subject, uses an irreverent and very human tone. The aim is to take the listener out of work mode and into a space where they feel empowered by another person’s vulnerability.

Audience takeaways:

  • Limit exposure to toxic environments and people. Understand how to set boundaries to deal with this
  • Say one life affirming thing about yourself just before you fall asleep each night
  • Before you get out of bed in the morning, think of five things you have in your life that you are grateful for
  • 30 mindful moments each day. Little glimpses of magic moments
  • Develop a trait of non-judgment both towards yourself and others

Music and Mindfulness

Music and mindfulness have a very special alliance. In recent years we have all started to consume and listen to music in a far more passive way. Learning to mindfully listen to music can help us develop the skill of meditation and master our ability to manage our stress.

Audience takeaways:

  • This talk will be about music and the brain. What happens when we listen or play music and why is it so powerful?
  • How music and mindfulness have a very special alliance that we can tap into to help reduce our stress.
  • Change our relationships to how we consume music to a much more mindful way rather than passive.

The Neuroscience of Mindfulness

With this talk Niall’s approach is to combine mindfulness and neuroscience education. Niall will deliver a standalone 45 minute talk followed by a 15 minute. Niall will cover the basic science of mindfulness and the brain, in both the short term and with longer term practice. The topics to be covered are:

Audience takeaways:

  • The basic structure of the brain and how it processes information
  • How information from our senses is non-consciously processed before we are aware of it
  • How and why much of our behavior is non-conscious
  • Why habits develop and why they are so difficult to change
  • How stress affects how we think and behave
  • Why mindfulness is difficult but worthwhile, including long term changes in the structure and function of the brain

The Archaic Architecture Of Stigma and How We Can Tear It Down

During this talk Niall Breslin looks at the societal mechanics of stigmas and how they impact our culture at a macro and micro level.
Broken down into three components the speech looks at:

  • The ingredients of stigmas.
  • The damage they can do to groups and individuals within these groups.
  • What we can do to erode them.

Delivered in a way that is deeply personal, accessible and thought provoking to challenge and incite the change we need to see.
