    Season 2. Ep. 23 - Morning Meditation for Stressful and Busy Times

    Beginning today’s morning meditation, Heather invites movement to release tension and soften the body. Transitioning into a space of rest, she encourages listeners to allow their mind to explore their to-do list in a meditative state, to say yes to all that they may need through breath, and to find a release of tension through vocal sighs.

    The podcast will be on a temporary hold as Heather takes some time to rest and rejuvenate this summer in preparation for the transition to van life. We look forward to returning in the near future as she continues her journey on the road. You can find us and continue your meditative practice in our virtual studio space, ALTAR DIGITAL.
