Back to Global Conversations 1.2: Elizabeth Lesser, Author
In a new age of anxiety, co-founder of the Omega Institute Elizabeth Lesser—the mindfulness expert who counseled Oprah on her Super Soul Sundays—offers her advice on coping with coronavirus, staying open to love and loss, harnessing the good in grief, the benefits of practicing patience, and how to bring a better world into being for ourselves.
Elizabeth has a huge fan base, including Oprah, who she’s counseled on her Super Soul Sunday’s and through her work as the co-founder of the acclaimed Omega Institute in the Hudson Valley, she’s met and in some cases advised just about every spiritual leader and thinker from the Dalai Lama to Deepak Chopra. But even with all of that, she is very open about still being a seeker herself. She has shared her journey and her wisdom at our annual retreats at Mi Amo and in her four books, including the soon to be published, Cassandra Speaks: When Women are the Storytellers, the Human Story Changes. Enjoy this fascinating conversation where she talked about grieving for our lost world, managing in this new anxious moment, and how to rebuild after a loss.
