This week features our every first digital Unstoppable episode and what better way to start than through the exploration of how meditation could shift humanity out of a state of crisis. Tom Cronin is the founder of The Stillness Project, a global movement to inspire 1 billion people to meditate daily. And he is also the creator of The Portal, a cinematic experience and book that follows six stories of overcoming trauma, anxiety, depression and PTSD using meditation. If you are looking to dramatically shift the trajectory of your brain, health, relationships and life...meditation and mindfulness might just be the key you've been looking for.

In this week’s show, the final show of our Low Tox Mind mini series, I speak to one of my favourite meditation teachers Tom Cronin, also an author and filmmaker of the recent film/book The Portal. Tom spent 26 years in finance markets as one of Sydney’s leading bond and swap brokers. He discovered meditation in the early stages of his career, when the anxiety and chaos he was experiencing had hit a crisis point, and it completely transformed his world, both personally and professionally. Founder of The Stillness Project, a global movement to inspire one billion people to sit in stillness daily, Tom is passionate about reducing stress and chaos in people’s lives and as we’re always reminded on the show - A better world starts with a healthier, happier us.
We discuss how meditation is a key factor in saving the world, through personal stories, energies at play currently in the world and more. If you ever needed another reason to prioritise stillness in your day and invite more meditation into your life - this is it. Enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed this conversation, and you can find the show notes over at lowtoxlife.com/podcast with the generous sponsor offer also. Alexx x
