On April 20th, I spoke with my soul sistalove Yael Flusberg, a Reiki Master Teacher, Board-Certified Polarity Therapist, yoga therapist, leadership coach, organizational facilitator, and poet, on my Thriving Mindfully Show on Eaton Radio at the Eaton Workshop, a woman-owned arts, social justice, and wellness hotel, co-working space, and center in DC. The episode (S1 EP2) focused on “Living A Resilient Life & Shining Your Light with Meditation, Yoga, and Poetry.” In case you missed it, watch the Facebook Live video here. The audio link will be shared in a few weeks.
During the show, Yael discussed the meaning of resiliency and mindfulness, Yael’s early years in New York City, and how her parents’ lives as genocide survivors impacted her life. She also talked about what led her to practice yoga and meditation, and write poetry including her poetry book, The Last of My Village published by Poetica in 2010 (received Annual Chapbook Award). In honor of National Poetry Month, she read her poem “Living Waters.” She ended the show with her leading a short meditation. For more information about Yael’s weekly classes, yin yoga teacher training, and Belize Rainforest Healing Retreat in November, go here.
