Elizabeth & Sukey Novogratz on Hello Freedom with Terri Cole

Elizabeth & Sukey Novogratz on Hello Freedom with Terri ColeMany of you have written in to me saying you know you should meditate, you want to meditate, but you just can’t get your butt on a pillow! And forming a habit can be hard, but there are so many positive side effects from making room for a mediation practice in your life.

To help you get started, I’m interviewing sisters-in-law Sukey and Elizabeth Novogratz, authors of a great book Just Sit. This book is a beginning guidebook for anyone who has been trying to start their practice but is having trouble. In it they answer just about every question you have about meditation. Listen in as we talk about how to start your meditation practice and how it can change your life.
