Welcome! If you're looking for some acceptance of yourself and whatever this moment presents, this episode is for you! Join host Shannon Bodie in her discussion with author, mindfulness instructor and Yoga teacher Riitta Rutanen Whaley as they explore *Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) and its applications. Riitta brings her decades of wisdom, personal healing journey, expertise and compassion to all listeners, no matter what your degree of experience with meditation. If you are new to mindfulness practice or a seasoned practitioner, you'll hear nuggets on the helpful attitudes, types of practice, and gentle inquiries to take with you. This conversation is full of perspective to enliven a deeper trust of your process, and open to what's arising in each moment.
