As part of our 21-Day Daily Meditation Challenge, we wanted to interview meditation teachers and practitioners to get their perspective on this awesome habit you could build.
In today’s episode, I chat with meditation teacher Leah Santa Cruz.
Leah currently lives and teaches meditation in Bali, where she ended up going after deciding to quit her corporate job in L.A.
And even though she had what would be considered a successful career in Silicon Valley, working for companies like Microsoft or Thrive Market, the constant stress and anxiety pushed her to burnout and unplug from that lifestyle and find a true passion for life through practicing and teaching meditation.
At the moment, Leah helps people find a personalized meditation practice and offers life coaching as well as leads transformational yoga and meditation retreats – her next one is for entrepreneurs and aspiring leaders on May 26 – June 1st, 2018, in Bali. It’s called Bali Like A Boss and is co-led with yoga teacher and business coach Shayna Hiller.

” What you’re resisting is going to persist even more. “
Leah Santa Cruz
- Bali is a great place to live 🙂
- Powering through the life challenges by sacrificing your health is counterproductive
- You should always first care about your inner selves and what’s right for you
- The purpose of the meditation is not to remove your thoughts
- What you’re resisting is going to persist even more
- Meditate as long as you want so it’s not forced
- Everyone can meditate
- Meditation teaches us to appreciate and be grateful for small things
- Your thoughts and your feelings have to be aligned in order for the law of attraction to work
- Consistency is what will bring the most benefits of meditation
- You can’t control what life will bring you, but you can control your reaction to it
