More Time Being Less Time Doing
Marlene Neumann’s NEW exciting talk ,’More time being Less time Doing’ was welcomed by excited attendees in East London at her picturesque Centre for Photography and Light in February.
Drawing and sharing from her vast experiences and talking with her heart on her sleeve Marlene shared the “moment of being” with a cross section of people that had no idea what to expect.
Her talk centered on the importance of BEING and not always DOING.
Marlene gently introduced the various ideas of what it means to be in the moment. And how to achieve that state in a world that has gone mad.
After the talk Marlene shared her love of cooking something VEGAN.
Marlene has been a vegan for over 15 years and takes every opportunity to introduce people to the variety of taste and textures that can be used to create a delicious meal.
