A note from intuitive psychotherapist and author Kara Kihm, LCSW, host of the Discovering My Wings Show on the Inkandescent Radio Network — Hello, and welcome to today’s episode of Discovering My Wings. As you know, I’m the author of the book about how my life profoundly transformed when I began listening to my intuition. This show is designed to help you do the same.
Today’s guest: Lauren Schuivens, founder of Samavira
Our topic: Walk to Serenity — Why mindfulness is essential for mental health
About Lauren: The founder and visionary of the organization Samavira, Lauren is a certified meditation and mindfulness instructor trained by Buddhist Monks in Thailand.
