ZfEL Ep. 18: How to Make Friends with Yourself: Walking the Journey to Yourself with Mindfulness


This is Journey to Yourself week on the ZfEL podcast. Today, I talk about how to make friends with yourself with mindfulness practice. I take you through that path with the metaphor of you traversing a forest with the light of mindfulness as that of a torch by your side.

This is a topic that often really resonates with people, and is one of my favorite to talk about because of how important I feel it is, so I hope you find value in it.

Also, make sure to listen to this week's guided meditation, ZfEL #19: A Mindful Welcome, which is about welcoming difficult thoughts, emotions, and sensations with the healing energy of mindfulness and changing the fundamental way we interact with our challenges and difficulties.

Thank you for listening & let me know what you think. :)
