Meditation: Marie’s Personal Practice

A reader named Sei asked if I could walk her through one of my most important daily habits. Specifically, how I meditate.

My first thought: “There’s soooo much info on meditation out there already…do I really need to add to the pile?”

There are 1440 minutes in a day. They’ll all go better if you take 10 of them to meditate. Click To Tweet

Second thought: “Yeah, I do. Because I haven’t fully covered my personal practice yet. And when you’re earnestly trying to learn something new, specific steps from someone you trust are vital.”

Colleen Saidman Yee: The First Lady Of Yoga

Every summer for nearly ten years now, I have a ritual I look forward to. It’s nothing fancy or complicated.

Just a simple practice that’s introduced me to new ideas, new people and — most often — to new parts of myself.

That ritual is taking yoga class with an extraordinarily gifted woman named Colleen Saidman Yee, author of the new book Yoga For Life.  

For me, her classes are transcendent. I laugh. I sweat. I cry. (Not always in that order.)

Allow beauty and sadness to touch you. This is love, not fear. @colleensaidman Click To Tweet

Inevitably, I walk away from my time with Colleen stronger in my humanity, more loving towards my body and softer in my heart.

Often, I find myself trying to remember insights and fresh ideas that always seem to download into my consciousness out of nowhere when I’m in her class. That’s why I’m so very thrilled to introduce you to her today.

If you ever struggle with feeling crushed under the weight of trying to be perfect, fulfill all of your responsibilities and stay in touch with the sweetness of life, I think you’ll truly enjoy this episode.

How To Live In The Moment

As you know, I don’t preach about something unless it’s daaauuumn good.

And I can say, unequivocally, no single set of tools, ideas, strategies and practices has made a bigger impact on my happiness and financial success than learning to live in the moment.
