Today I had the honor of interviewing via live radio Dr. Bob Butera.

Many of you may be familiar with Bob from his extensive work at Yoga Life Institute or Yoga Living Magazine, but for me it was my first personal encounter with him.

Holy crow—I learned so much in 30 minutes.

We chatted about Bob’s recent book Meditation for Your Life which focuses on adapting a meditation practice to fit your personal disposition and needs. I love how clearly Bob organizes meditation into six specific types making it more accessible and easier to find out which type suits you best.

In addition, Bob shared tips on how to prepare for meditation and what to do to stay motivated in a meditation practice. He truly takes the mystery out of meditation, making it easy to incorporate into daily life.

Personally I thank him for helping me more fully appreciate that I don’t need to have a formal, sit on my zafu for 30 minutes, focusing on clearing my mind type practice to invite daily, effective meditation into my life.

Here’s to a new level of wellness, peace and calm.
