Kailas has meditated since the beginning of 2016.
He is not sure if this daily practice has made him a better man. But he has noticed that generally, he’s less concerned when things don’t go to plan. He still gets annoyed at failure and strives to reverse that outcome, but thanks to meditation, he’s more aware of what is in his control and what is not. For the problems over which he has no control, for these: he doesn’t worry as much.
As an Architect and WELL Accredited Professional, Kailas leads DP Architect’s global Wellbeing drive from our London Studio. Over 20 years in the construction industry, spanning North America, Europe and Asia, has afforded him a wide range of experience in many sectors and scales of projects; through them all, he strives to bring a considered process-driven and human-centric approach to design. This includes the ambition to imbed a contemplative quality to the spaces, places and journeys he creates.
His interests outside architecture include writing and trying to stay healthy through sport and wellbeing practices such as yoga. Lockdown in London has allowed him to master the headstand, finally.
