Practice You PODCAST

Content and conversations for times of transition and change.

Join me in discussion with renowned luminaries and dear friends to explore life's myriad transitions, our understandings and our responses. What does it mean to be present, to shift our perceptions, to engage with the world meaningfully, with dignity and care? With respect for the ancient practices and the modern wisdom that continue to inform and elevate our exchanges, each episode is an invitation to Practice You.

Listened to your interview with Roshi Joan Halifax (outstanding!), and your interview with Dr. Pamela Ayo Yetunde (also outstanding!). Will queue up Gabor and Ruth King for the drive home tomorrow. Thank you for pairing your voice and perspective in these wise conversations, elena. You are clear and bright. -R.
