Very insightful!

I love how Maria ties in supporting the major source of income in her community (wineries) with wellness. It’s important to spread the word that it’s possible to mindfully enjoy everything in life! I have enjoyed many different guests and it’s a delight to have a guided meditation at the end of each episode.
