This has been one of my favorite conversations thus far in the podcast series. I have a LONG conversation with Katie about meditation and mindfulness. Katie talks a lot about how a mindfulness practice helped her overcome negative body image issues. I go into how a meditation practice helped me overcome my fear of pain.

Regardless of what you’re struggling with in your life, this podcast will help give you ideas on how to start making progress towards finding ways to defeat those struggles.

Before we get to the podcast, here’s one of my all-time favorite photos of Katie teaching mindfulness to about 200 little kiddos:
