On Friday, August 28th we were honored to host senior meditation teacher Jonathan Foust.

Jonathan joined us live for an engaging conversation about psychology, suffering, non-violent communication, and the power of sound with studio BE mindfulness teacher Marije Paternotte.

In case you missed it, you can watch our whole conversation here:
