Released Thursday, 26th July 2018
Good episode? Give it some love!
Host: Dhru Purohit
Guest: Light Watkins

Why do people meditate? Is it because they need to de-stress—or is it because they want to work smarter and be more productive? It actually can be both and much more. Many benefits can’t even be measured. But, it is a common experience that if you meditate you will feel better; you’ll feel more relaxed, calmer, and focused.

Today, on The Broken Brain Podcast, host Dhru Purohit and expert meditation teacher and author Light Watkins have a deep discussion about the power of meditation in your life. Light and Dhru talk about the history of meditation, different meditation types (including the style Light teaches), and very practical tips on getting started.

Light explains why meditation elicits a relaxation response that is deeper than sleep, why it’s important to have your back supported and sit in a comfortable place, and how his community events called The Shine are wholesome places for people to come together to lift each other up.
