37: Interconnectedness and Belonging with Sebene Selassie

This week on Radiant Mix, I am so happy to bring back an important episode that aired last year featuring the lovely Sebene Selassie, a celebrated meditation teacher and author of her new book You Belong: A Call for Connection.

Sebene has been studying Buddhism for 30 years and has been teaching meditation workshops, courses and retreat for over a decade and is a popular teacher on the Ten Percent Happier app. For over 20 years she’s worked with children, youth, and families nationally and internationally for small and large not for profits. In this episode, Sebene drops some science and profound wisdom about the power of a spiritual path and community, self-care, insights on working through trauma, the art of welcoming challenges into our lives…not an easy feat.  Now more than ever we need mindfulness in our lives.
