This week I am sharing a discussion with my business partner and all around favorite person, Octavia Raheem. Octavia & I have been friends, colleagues & partners for many years, and now, Octavia has published her first book - Gather.

I had the distinct good fortune to read Gather in advance, and I have used it as part of my personal meditation practice everyday since. It is a collection of essays, prayers and poems written from the deep knowledge sourced in Octavia’s personal meditative practices. Each entry is followed with beautiful and thoughtful journal prompts inviting introspection and reflection. Join Octavia and me for today’s discussion as we talk about yoga nidra, meditation, ancestors, courage and rest.

Perhaps most importantly, be sure you stay for Octavia’s guided meditation on courage at the end of today’s episode. It is a practice we all need right now!
