How practicing meditation can help you know yourself and live a more aligned life

Welcome to episode 23 of The Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy and Meditation podcast.

In today’s episode, Breathing Deeply Meditation Program Coordinator, Sara Bowman sits down with Brandt for an interview about meditation and how meditation can help us understand our life path and ourselves better and make decisions that are in line with who we really are.

“One of the great gifts of meditating is being more sensitive to ourselves and more intuitive in terms of knowing what’s important to us and being open and clear enough to follow that advice from ourselves.”

Brandt covers questions around how long we should meditate for to start seeing effects, why it’s not a one-fits-all approach as well as how meditation can increase our intuitive abilities when it comes to listening to our own guidance and how this can support us in making big life decisions and creating better habits.
