“To become a #mindfulness #teacher, it’s really simple, just commit your life to it. You need to have your own practice, and walk the path.”
“You guys (teens) have the key to the magic to help create real change on this planet in many different ways. I want to encourage all teens to do whatever you need to do to keep being you & keep finding yourself, what drives you, & makes you feel purposeful on the planet.”
