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.

Refreshing in the podcast space. Every episode leaves me feeling spacious, calm, at ease, and both delighted and moved by the world. Elena, you’re always so stunningly articulate and gracious. Thank you for this offering. May it never end.
