Be present to yourself.
This is being posted on Valentine’s Day, when it’s traditional to acknowledge those you love. If you aren’t on your list of people you know and love, this is a good time to think about how to change that.
Meditation is a time-honoured means of learning to be present with yourself, to get to know and appreciate who you really are.
If you’ve ever had even an inkling of interest in meditation, this video is for you. Emily Fletcher started her career in theatre. When she refers to being able to dance, that relates to her 10-year career on Broadway, which included roles in Chicago, The Producers, and A Chorus Line.
As a speaker, she is both engaging and knowledgeable. Emily began her ten years of meditation training in Rishikesh, India and was inspired to teach after experiencing the profound physical and mental beneﬁts meditation provided.
This talk was to staff at Google in 2014. I’ve not heard anyone speak so compellingly about meditation in terms of its applicability to ordinary Western daily life. Enjoy.
