In Season 3 of Mindfulness Off the Cushion, we’ll shift our focus away from our clinical perspective to explore mindfulness from a deeply experiential perspective. This season will consist of four interviews — each with a companion meditation — with our special guest, Geeta Cowlagi. As you'll soon discover, Geeta is a certified mindfulness instructor who approaches her mindfulness practice from a loving, get-to-know-yourself-better perspective.
It is our goal with this fourth season to join you in the process of personal discovery. As Geeta so invitingly puts it, we’ll learn together how to develop the courage to just sit with ourselves and have a cup of tea. Let’s discover what that means for Geeta, and for other practitioners as well. We’ll begin by getting to know her a bit, then dip our toes in the sea of getting to know ourselves better, guided by Geeta’s supportive, steady voice.
Season 3 Special Guest Geeta Cowlagi is a CFM Certified MBSR Teacher from the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness (CFM) in Medicine, Health Care, and Society. Geeta has been leading groups and individuals in their mindfulness journeys for over a decade from her Central Texas practice, Joyful Living. Geeta’s teachings are based in part on her own teacher, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program.
