I’m so excited about my next feature⭐️✨✍🏽🧘🏻♀️
Back in 2015 I stumbled upon my next guests work and was absolutely blown away at her work. I was doing my 1st Interview Series called “The Art of Manifesting Money” and reached out to her to introduce myself and we formed a relationship. At that time she was in the middle of one of her book launches, so I was not able to interview her for that project. But I am so grateful now to have the opportunity to now, after all these years. I’m a firm believer in Devine Timing in every area of my life and if it’s meant, it will. This time it did.

MY INTERVIEW WITH ELENA BROWER
Q1. What did you want to be growing up?
Convinced I’d be either a veterinarian or a gardener, I’m pretty sure I’ve sort of become both in my own way…
Q2. How can you practice your best life?
Waking up and sitting for meditation, I’m connecting deeply to my busy mind, my open mind, my family, my community, our world, and my engagement with it.
Q3. Do you have some tips for those who are interested in starting a meditation and yoga practice to make a difference in their lives?
These two posts are helpful:
Q4. What do you think people misunderstand most about meditation?
That it’s a task on the list, separate from our lives.
Q5. Tell us about Practice You Podcast?
The Podcast is one of my favorite ways to be a student. I invite folks on from whom I wish to learn.
Q6. How do you process work load stress or personal stress or just to much coming at you all at one time?
Exercise, writing, resting, yoga, meditation.
Q7. If you could speak to one woman from history, who would it be?
I have two. Harriet Tubman and Anne Frank would be first. I have others.
Q8. Favorite yoga pose and why?
Savasana or legs up the wall. The most important.
Q9. Any exciting projects in the works this coming year?
Softening Time, my first collection of poetry, comes out on May 16th.
Anyone who buys 2 copies gains free access to a 4-week course with four writers I admire.
Simplify, my signature course, has been revamped, re-recorded as an audio course and comes out super soon…
And i’m starting my Buddhist Chaplaincy training in 2024. Nervous and knowing it’s my work.
Q10. Where can we find you?
