Inspiring and insightful

Jonathans’s podcast episodes and offerings have been so helpful for me over the past year. Whenever I tune in I know I will be learning something new. The recent episodes on sleep were really great for me as well. Thanks Jonathan for all you do ❤️

Profoundly human, real and practical

Johnathan‘s teachings have a unique combination of funny, profound, relevant and deeply transformational. In my mind, Johnathan is one of the most accessible meditation teachers on the planet.
