I am thrilled that I was interviewed by Jonathan Bastian on the radio show A Life Examined on KCRW, an NPR station in L.A about Meditation, the Alexander Technique and Embodied Listening. We talked about how listening to ourselves helps us better hear what others have to say. The show was aired on April 10th. My interview is 21:53 into the podcast. Check it out!

Want to learn more about it? I am teaching Embodied Listening on zoom over Memorial Day weekend. Join me for a FREE experiential presentation on Fri., May 28
