Play • 1 hr 7 min

Welcome back to THE GURU! Today’s podcast is about discovery and insights on the spiritual path. In today’s episode, Howard Falco is joined by yoga teacher Tierney Rae. She is also a meditation teacher and a spiritual seeker. Tierney runs a book club called the Transcend Book Club where she provides a space for spiritual seekers who are dedicated to expanding consciously and transcending their limiting beliefs. At only 24 years old, Tierney already has great insight, mindfulness, and a clarity about how she presents and offers questions and answers. Her journey of healing and spirituality is one anyone can learn from no matter their age or where they are in their own journey. She discusses her insights and thoughts around many topics in this episode from meditation and yoga to God and religion to understanding the ripple effect you create through the way you live your life. Together they touch on overcoming self-doubt, becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable, the importance of living with mindfulness and intent, the value in living through love and vulnerability, and much, much more.
