Meditation Ruined My Life (Sam Brady / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Friday 26 August 2011

Sam Brady understands the fine art of good story-telling, and has had a blessedly poetic life which he shares entirely with us. We sit, appropriately, on huge floor cushions underground, and hear his story of giving up everything to adopt a semi-monastic lifestyle with a mixture of amusement, sadness and shared joy. Hearing a man from Wigan speak about enlightenment and oneness with the universe is funny in itself, his accent only highlighting his overall amiable nature. Though delivery lacked at times and some jokes simply fell flat, the story was well told and fascinating; here’s a man who’s learnt much along his journey, and shares his lessons with a lot of poetry and little pretence.

Medina, 6 – 27 Aug, 1.20pm (2.20pm), free, fpp117.
