Helpful for Newbies and Those Curious about Meditation

Live and Dare Podcast is a blessing. Being pretty new at meditation practice with no formal training, the information from Giovanni’s interviews has been encouraging and helpful. I think it would also be an excellent resource for those who are considering starting their own meditation practice.
