Episode 20: Gemma Gambee Lewis


Artist and meditation teacher Gemma Gambee Lewis on the work that helps us share the most primary inner state, and taking meditation into our actions in the world.

Gemma Lewis is a meditation and spiritual teacher nurturing the integration between the spirit and the mind. After a 20-year career in international fashion modeling, trend forecasting, and brand building, Gemma is most at home when sitting in meditation and teaching what this practice has generously given. She classically trained for more than two decades in the traditions of Yoga, Bhakti, the Vedas, Vedanta, and Kashmir Shaivism. When she is not meditating, she’s wrapped up in other creative pursuits like drawing, painting and deep-diving brand strategy work in the fashion, art, design, and film industries.
