Davidji on Hello Freedom with Terri Cole

Today I’ve got a great interview with someone who has really has a huge impact on my life, my brother from another mother, Davidji.

Davidji was my original meditation teacher over ten years ago, and I was always just able to understand him – he made meditation click for me. He helped me understand how meditation was impacting the other 23 hours of my day.

This man is a globally recognized mind and body health and wellness expert, a mindful performance trainer, and bestselling author. His new book is called Destressifying: The Real World Guide to Personal Empowerment, Lasting Fulfillment, and Peace of Mind. I can’t wait for you to hear about his new book, how tries to view everything with a positive lens, and why he likes to take the scenic route.
