Episode 044: From Fast-Paced to Unplugged: The Power of Pause with Unplug Meditation Founder, Suze Yalof Scwartz.
This week on The Alchemized Life we welcome Suze Yalof Schwartz, founder and CEO of Unplug Meditation, the world's first drop-in secular meditation studio. She is also the author of Unplug: A Simple Guide To Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers, and the creator of the Unplug: Guided Meditation App. In 2012, Suze learned a three-minute meditation that changed her life forever. Prior to this, she was a fashion editor and "makeover guru" working at Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and Glamour Magazine with regular appearances on GMA, The Today Show, CBS Early Show, and more.
Once she discovered meditation, she was determined to keep doing it but she could not find a place to easily learn and practice. After taking hundreds of hours of classes, reading every book possible, and listening to podcasts and lectures from the world's most famous meditation teachers, Suze realized that meditation needed a makeover and she was the one to do it.
Suze's mission is to make meditation simple, accessible, powerful and interesting enough so that everyone will want to practice it and experience the benefits for themselves.
In this week’s episode we talk all about where Suze's meditation practice started and how she stays motivated to her practice. We discuss who "Busy Skeptics" are and how to know if you are one of them. In this episode you’ll learn ways outside of meditation to stay grounded and things you can do to get a taste of the benefits of meditation.
