Session 190: Creating Calm Through Meditation & Affirmations
The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves. One of the qualities I most appreciate about people who regularly practice mindfulness is the ability to cultivate inner calm despite what is happening on the outside and I think this is definitely something many of us can use more of right now. To help us learn more about mindfulness practices, today we are joined by Wellness educator, Meditation teacher, Reiki Healer, and Author Devi Brown. Devi also serves as the Chief Impact Officer for Chopra Global and is the voice of daily inspiration on the Chopra App. Devi and I chatted about the wellness practices she incorporates into her life, how to get started with using crystals and primordial sound meditation, the importance of affirmations and she shared a beautiful guided affirmation that can be experienced over and over to help keep you grounded.
