Today we welcomed Vanessa Guild to the show. She spoke at length about the incredible power of meditation, something that guides her and uplift her, and helped her to overcome an abusive incestuous past.
Her meditation studies began over 12 years ago under Dr. Benjamin Wren, a Jesuit Priest and Zen Master, author of "Zen Among the Magnolias." Hurricane Katrina took Vanessa's city, home and all personal belongings. For two weeks she had no knowledge of her father, mother or friends. Vanessa knew "breathing" and "calming the mind" techniques, but Hurricane Katrina forced her to "live" them ... at an entirely different level, while finding her loved ones and then having to rebuild her entire life. She was trained extensively by international speaker / award winning author Azim Khamisa in his forgiveness and meditation workshops. Vanessa co-facilitated programs in Australia and the USA with Khamisa. Vanessa can precisely explain how to meditate and calm the mind. She also shares authentically with us about her upbringing and how meditation can assist with healing from pain and dealing with present life challenges.
