What if you could revolutionise your life, work and relationships with mindfulness and meditation? Well my friends… you CAN and Dr Daniel Goleman is here to show us how.
I’m a massive fan of meditation as it has truly changed all facets of my life, which is why I absolutely LOVED chatting with Daniel. Known for his worldwide bestseller, Emotional Intelligence, Daniel is a long time meditator and even spent two years in exotic India studying the ancient systems of psychology and various meditation practices. Based on this research, he penned his first book The Meditative Mind: The Varieties of Meditative Experience which offers an overview of various meditation paths. He talks us through his journey and all the nuggets of wisdom he has learnt along the way, along with sharing the most profound meditation techniques that he has tried and his incredible top tips for anyone starting out. Together, we take you through a powerful meditation that you cannot miss, whether you’re a newbie or well-practiced meditator.
