"Our minds want to be right more than they want to be happy." Wow! What an honor to have Author and Meditation Teacher Barrett Self on the podcast! I knew Barrett as a child; he and his family even sang at my wedding, so it was AMAZING to reconnect with him and talk about what he's passionate about. We chat about what led him to create Exhale and his personal spiritual journey, why meditation and mindfulness is so important, with plenty of practical tips to starting your own practice! We also talk about pain vs. suffering, such an important topic.

Barrett Self is a commissioned meditation teacher with an emphasis on guiding people back to their true nature. He holds certificates in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness and has published his first book, 'Directly Home: A Simple Guide Back to the Spiritual You'.
