This guided meditation takes you on a journey through the seven main energy centers of the body, also known as the chakras.

Sitting with Desire
17:18

In today’s episode, we discuss and meditate on how to sit with desire, and why we would even want to bring mindfulness into moments of craving. Desire couldn’t be any more natural, we all seek pleasure, and we all want to satisfy our cravings. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, observing, understanding, and working with our desires can be so important to living a happy, healthy life. So I hope you enjoy this meditation and if you do please rate, review, share.

17:11

In honor of US Thanksgiving, let’s discuss and meditate on gratitude…and what gratitude looks like in 2020.

Finding Balance in Stressful Times
12:56

There’s no doubt that these are stressful times. This meditation is designed for re-centering for rebalancing in times of chaos or uncertainty. We cannot control what is going on around us but what we can do is be proactive in coming back to our breath, returning to ourselves, and strengthen our muscles of resilience, of compassion, and shift our perspective. So let’s take this time to slow down together and do just that. 

Nov 04, 2020
Facing Fear
11:58

We return to an episode on fear from Season 1. We are taught to move away from fear when in reality, we must lean into our fears in order to release them. Just as a loved one or trusted friend may express their fears to us, we must step back, listen to, and hold compassion for our own. 

Nov 02, 2020
An Unhurried Presence
10:27

Use this meditation as an invitation to slow down, to connect to your innate peace within, and cultivate an unhurried presence.

Shifting Perspective
16:01

This meditation is an opportunity to shift your perspective on a certain situation or emotion that has you feeling stuck. As I’m sure you’ve experienced before, when we get wrapped up in negative emotions it really zaps our energy and clouds our thinking. Sometimes all it takes is a simple shift in perspective to open up to a new possibility, to bring about clarity, and potentially some inspiration.

Resilience in Unprecedented Times
12:48

Since the pandemic kicked off I’ve tried to think of the perfect thing to say to relieve all fears, worries, stresses, to find the perfect quote or lead the most heartwarming meditations but the truth is there is no one size fits all cure. But what we can do is build up our resilience and develop the strength to overcome obstacles, to be able to see a brighter future, and navigate this ever-changing world. 

Let us meditate on resilience.

Self-love is dynamic; it grows by actions that mature us.” Through stillness, present awareness, and mindful intention let us connect to our innate sense of self-compassion and love.

May 08, 2020

Cultivating Connection
08:17

COVID-19 reminds us of how interconnected us human beings really are. However, self-isolation can make us feel more disconnected than ever.

Apr 24, 2020
Still Body, Still Mind
06:05

In today's episode, we carve out a few minutes to be present in stillness. I find that stillness brings perspective. As we settle back into the moment it allows us to remember what’s truly important and to essentially zoom out. I invite you to take a moment to zoom out, so to speak, and find a fresh perspective.    

"True intelligence operates silently. Stillness is where creativity and solutions to problems are found." - Eckhart Tolle.
