Show Notes

If you’re thriving in your life and looking for a way to be 10% happier or 1% more productive, we may not be the podcast for you. If you’re feeling overwhelmed stressed or struggling and you’re looking for help in your daily dance with suffering, welcome home. This podcast was made for you.

We hope you’ll join us as we share ways that you can practice bringing awareness to your inner world throughout your daily moments. We hope to point you toward the process of learning how to be more self-aware and compassionate toward yourself moment by moment. And as Claudio likes to say, there are a lot of moments in our lives, aren’t there? 

Why do we recommend you do this? So that you can more carefully step into a more intentional and patient role of caring for your own mental health and crafting a journey of healing. 

If you’re a long-time listener, thank you for hanging in there with us as we continue to find new ways to uncover the pathways that exist within us. Pathways that lead us to the best version of ourselves.

Today, Claudio and I launch our 4th season of MOTC. We’ll be interviewing mindfulness practitioners from all walks of life with the goal of showcasing their favorite ways to practice mindfulness off the cushion. Our hope is that you’ll be able to integrate some of these skills in your own practice.

Our first guest is a former teacher who discovered a way to bring peace to her classroom. Her name is Katrina Gleisberg and she is a mindfulness educator, coach, and meditation creator. After teaching special education, 3rd & 4th grades, and adult English Language Learners, she noticed a striking commonality: students of drastically different backgrounds and ages showed greater attention, calm, collaboration, and ability to take on challenges after short mindfulness practices throughout the day. She is now on a mission to spread mindfulness and holistic wellness everywhere she goes.
