Becoming Stronger by Practicing Yoga + Meditation

Becoming Stronger by Practicing Yoga + Meditation

As we come to the close of our “Becoming Stronger” series, Janell hoped and prayed several guests would honor us with their wisdom and grace. When Caroline Williams, founder of “The Abbey,” an at-home yoga sanctuary of peace, presence, and belonging for the lover of God who is aching to feel whole, said yes, Janell was filled with both gratitude and excitement. Caroline’s teaching on yoga and meditation has been a spiritual lifeline during COVID-19, and her wise teaching on the practice of yoga an even greater lifeline to SO MANY desiring to become stronger and more whole every single day. Please listen with an open mind and heart and enjoy Caroline’s beautiful, “I love you,” meditation at the close of the episode. I pray this “gift” is a blessing to your heart, mind, and body.

I am so honored to have this urgent conversation with them both, especially as the world recovers and re-opens from a global pandemic. How will we emerge from this very unnerving period in history? Will we go back to “normal,” i.e., living that hurried life we all know so well, or will we emerge with a more central purpose and way of being? Today, we tackle some tough questions and offer hope for living an unhurried life AND we have a few great, soul-stretching laughs.

Becoming Stronger Through Setting Boundaries for Your Soul

Dr. Alison Cook, Author of “Boundaries for Your Soul: How to Turn Your Overwhelming Thoughts and Feelings into Your Greatest Allies,” asks this question, “Do you control your feelings or do your feelings control you?” Many of us allow guilt, anger, or self-criticism to dominate our inner lives and adversely affect our relationships.
