Encore - Shannon Harvey - Changes in your Brain and Body when you Meditate Everyday for a Year!
Shannon Harvey is an award-winning Australian health journalist, author, and filmmaker. In her film (and now a book, My Year of Living Mindfully), Shannon committed to meditating every day for 365 days. She enlisted a team of top scientists from around the world to track everything from her stress hormones to her immune function to her cellular aging and gene expression to her subjective wellbeing. Overwhelmed with insomnia, autoimmune disease, and a family history of mental health issues, Shannon was highly motivated to find a way to address the challenges she faced, and those we all face with the growing epidemics of stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction. The results were surprising! She hopes that the film will spark meaningful conversations and help all of us feel more grounded and calm as we face the inevitable challenges of being human.

I loved listening to the episode with Jessica Graham about mindfulness and sex. Her perspective on creating a relationship with pleasure was so grounding and felt so accessible, especially since the pursuit of pleasure can feel out-of-reach at times. This podcast is such a great resource that helps me stay in touch with what’s most important.
