37: Create Positive Change in your Life Through Meditation with Jeff Warren

The man who single handedly got Joy hooked on meditation, Jeff Warren, joins her for a very special episode today. Jeff is a meditation instructor, journalist, and author with a dynamic and accessible teaching style whose mission in life is to empower people to take responsibility for their own mental health. He is honest, funny, and, above all, passionate about destigmatizing meditation with his much more relaxed approach, and his mediation instruction continues to be a blessing to Joy while journeying through the current pandemic.

In this episode, Jeff shares his background, how his interest in meditation began, and how he uses it to support his own mental health. He then presents the four medicines to be found within meditation, what helps him get into his flow, meditation’s role in creating space in your head and dealing with grief, and explores the neuroscience behind it. Jeff also reviews the changes that parenthood has made in his meditation, the shift that mediation has made with his bipolar disorder, and his unique collaboration with Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. He and Joy also discuss some of the initiatives he offers, the best way to start meditating, and their favorite meditation guides. Fittingly, Jeff finishes the episode with a mini-meditation in which all are invited to participate. Jeff Warren is a remarkable man whom Joy credits with making a profoundly positive difference in her life – listen in today to find out how he can do the same for you.
