Finding Your Life's Purpose & Practicing Mindfulness with David Richards The Balanced Being Podcast with Gunny Sodhi

    • Health & Fitness

Today my guest is David Richards, who is a #1 international best-selling author, life coach, yoga instructor and self-development speaker. In his debut best-selling book, Whiskey & Yoga, David shares his wisdom on finding one’s purpose and living intentionally. His recently released novel titled, The Lighthouse Keeper is a story around the power of mindfulness, and explores the ways individuals can learn to shift their awareness to master their minds.

David spent his early childhood living in various parts of the United States and overseas as his father was a Marine. After graduating from university with a degree in english, David followed in his father’s and brother’s footsteps and was commissioned in the Marines. He served fifteen years on active duty rising to the rank of major. In 2006, David discovered yoga and started to look at life differently. Realizing the fulfillment that came from helping others see their vision more clearly, he became a certified life coach. He now works with individuals and organizations conducting training through private coaching engagements, speaking events and workshops around the world.

This is what we discuss in depth:


David’s military background and his “why.”

How did “Lighthouse Keeper” come about what it is about?

How to practice mindfulness daily and how it impacts your life and has impacted David’s?

How to find purpose in life and why that is important?


Based in North Carolina, David blends elements of yoga with quantum physics to bring the esoteric together with the practical for a truly unique perspective of how the mind works, in turn creating easily understood self-development plans that create lasting change for a more fulfilling life.

Thanks for listening and wishing you the best of health,

Gunny Sodhi.
