    Noah Heney | From Self-Destruction to Freedom & Bliss

    “It’s not about abandonment of the world, it's about recognizing the underlying reality of this dynamic world-play that we live in. And what allows the recognition is the moments of quiet, the moments of pause, of stillness which we can cultivate through the yogic practice, the practice of meditation, mantra, and the company we keep.”A brilliant discussion with Noah Heney, a teacher & yogi who’s devoted his life to unfolding the vision of oneness. Noah touches on his early days which were darkened by substance abuse & depression, and goes on to share his journey from self-destruction to self-transformation.We also discuss;➖ Choosing freedom over darkness in life & how to recognize grace➖ The power of disillusionment in the yogi’s path➖ What is meditation, awareness and recognition➖ How the yogi flows like water➖ The ancient yogic tradition of offering knowledgeConnect with Noah at http://breathofsky.com/I absolutely loved this chat, and can only express gratitude for Noah’s openness and wisdom. I hope you find some inspiration & take aways for your own self-transformation to love, light & freedom!With love and oneness,BobbiThanks for listening, you beautiful soul!💭 If you liked this episode, please leave a review on Apple podcasts – it really, really helps the show reach more people, plus I love reading each one.💭Never miss a new episode and subscribe on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or your favorite platform.💭 Share your biggest takeaway on Instagram stories – just be sure to tag @bobbipaidel so we can connect💭 If you’d like to chat about the show, offer feedback or be a guest, please get in touch.💭 To learn more about how to work with me privately, my courses, workshops and retreats, or to get instant access to my free 7 day course for cultivating a Self yoga practice go to www.bobbipaidel.com/build-your-self-practice and enjoy! 🙏♥️✨
