60 Mindful Minutes

60 Mindful Minutes

When things change inside us, things change around us. Launched in 2017, 60 Mindful Minutes invites you into conversations with award-winning and best-selling authors about what it means to live a more connected, conscious and intentional life. In this fast-paced, digital-centric world, finding the time and space to tune into ourselves has become increasingly difficult. And yet, we all benefit from stillness and introspection. It’s in the white spaces that we come home to ourselves, learn to know ourselves more deeply, and begin to navigate our lives with intention. Join Certified Mindfulness Teacher Kristen Manieri for this weekly deep dive into conscious living. (Formerly, The Synced Life)
