In this awe-inspiring chat, our fabulous host Julie sits down with the one and only Dawn Gaden, a meditation guru who knows the true power of finding tranquility amidst life’s chaos. Get ready to dive into the world of meditation with a sprinkle of humor and a truckload of wisdom. Let’s get our Zen on, people!
Discovering Meditation: From Panic to Peace
Imagine being a freshman in college, battling test anxiety, insomnia, and panic attacks. Yikes! But fear not, because Dawn Gaden stumbled upon meditation and changed the game. As she delves into her journey, you’ll learn that meditation isn’t just about sitting cross-legged and humming “om.” It’s a tool for conquering stress and anxiety in the most badass way possible!
From Test Takers to Soul Shakers: Dawn’s Quest for Counseling Psychology
Back in the ’80s, there were no coaching certificates to be found. So, Dawn embarked on her quest to become a counseling psychologist. No worries if you’re still searching for the perfect path, though! Dawn emphasizes the importance of starting somewhere and taking time for yourself. So sit your cute self down, close those precious eyes, and take a much-needed breather.
Meditation for Busy Bees: Finding Calm in the Creative Chaos
It’s a common misconception that meditation is only for monks and people with loads of free time. Nuh-uh! Dawn reminds us that meditation is a lifesaver for busy bees like us, especially creatives. You don’t need a week-long retreat in the mountains to find your inner peace. You can meditate anywhere, even while doing mundane tasks like washing dishes (yes, really!).
Meditation Magic: Chopping Wood, Carrying Water, and Enlightenment
Ever wondered why everyone keeps talking about chopping wood and carrying water? Dawn breaks it down for us. It’s all about shifting our perspective and finding enlightenment right smack in the middle of our everyday lives. So, let’s embrace mindfulness, find joy in the simple acts like washing dishes (bet you never thought you’d hear that before), and uncover the magic within.
Banishing Panic Attacks and Stress: Meditation’s Secret Sauce
Panic attacks? Stress? Mental chatter driving you bonkers? Fear not, for Dawn reveals how meditation can come to your rescue. It’s not only about finding peace in the chaos but also about changing beliefs and reducing stress levels. Get ready to wave buh-bye to panic attacks and embrace a calmer, more peaceful you!
Rewriting Your Story: Creating a Positive Brainwashing
We all know the power of self-image and self-talk. Dawn challenges the belief that we’re meant to be unhappy workaholics until the day we keel over. Nope, not on her watch! By changing our thoughts and internal dialogue, we can create a new, positive brainwashing for ourselves. It’s time to rewrite our stories and embrace a life filled with love and joy.
Phew! What an incredible journey with Dawn Gaden on the BBB Podcast. We’ve learned the power of meditation, the importance of being present, and how to find the zen amidst the chaos. So, dear listeners, take some time for yourself, breathe in the goodness, and let’s make this world a little more peaceful, one meditation session at a time. Until next time, stay groovy and keep exploring the realm of mindfulness!
