    Such a treat, thank you so much!

    Wow! A very empowering and thought provoking conversation. Thanks for the reminder that Meditation can be may things to different people and it’s the individual path that matters the most! There is no perfect way of meditating as it’s all part of the process of our human experience and being on a spiritual journey.

    I have tried since Day 1 to get these videos to play and have tried everything I can think of. I am having the links sent to my Google email address. I keep getting the same error message though… “This video is restricted. Try signing in with a Google Apps account.” I am so bummed that I am missing this!! Any ideas…?

    Very useful talk, thank you very much to Danielle and Susan

    So many take-aways from this wonderful interview! What a treat to see the two of you together. I’ve admired both of you for years. <3
    I feel empowerment rising too, Susan, from what Danielle said about deserving what we desire and not needing​ to earn it.
    I also especially appreciate the notion that heartbreak needs to be felt through, not pushed away, and that a relationship may not work for a time and that this doesn't have to mean it disintegrates altogether.
    Thank you both, so much, for your wisdom and your love. Namaste.

    A very down-to-earth conversation; thank you.

  9. Aaron May 19, 2017 at 6:13 pm

    She keeps it real. I loved this!

  10. Trish May 19, 2017 at 12:51 pm

    Oh I am so grateful to hear Danielle say that meditation is “comforting” to her…that is exactly how I feel. It fills me, opens me up and soothes me. This talk was so special, both women asking and speaking about desire. I am so glad I didn’t miss this.

  11. Lamees Mansur May 19, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    Love these two women and their conversation. Real, down-to-earth, honest and straightforward. Makes it easy for me to relate. Love the light-heartedness and the truth about this interaction. …and also getting to know these two wonderful human beings….is a gift!

    As a Nine in the Enneagram, I’m still trying to figure out what my ‘desires’ are. In this first year of retirement I have given myself over to a path of transformation guided by centering prayer, enneagram, and feldenkrais. While I would like for this to proceed linearly, with a more specific plan, and mileposts to reach along the way, as a Nine, that is way too much work:-) In any event, even with my plans, my life, my awareness seems to be moving in a genuinely messy way or with genuine messiness. Lots of stuff comes up, difficult stuff which I had no way of anticipating. They often arrive as surprise or shock. I’m learning to stay in the moment, to stay with that new awareness of what I am feeling, what I am thinking, what I am saying to myself. This allows me to identify more clearly what fears have been triggered. Your conversation is helping. “Genuiness as the path” seems like a useful mantra to me. I want to express my gratefulness to each of you, Susan and Danielle. Cheers.

    Desire is the root cause for all grief said Buddha and for first time heard you deserve your desire. Further, desire is OK. Very enlightening view. Thanks Danielle

  14. Kristina May 19, 2017 at 9:14 am

    Realness <3

  15. Naomi Knowles May 18, 2017 at 9:55 pm

    My heart feels lighter. I had a laugh at myself and told my inner critic to take a hike. Thanks ladies for telling it how it is.

  16. Rich May 18, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    Danielle stated that “as a heart broken person when someone else comes along, be it months or ten years, the grief is just gone”, is this true? Five years out of a divorce, dating for a little over a year and I can’t seem to make it to a second date by choice. That sounds bad, but life is good! Just learning and hopefully growing.

    Audi is very poor

    To realize that its okay to feel bad or to grieve for what you want or desire and don’t get. You don’t have to be the perfect meditater in the group and just let go to experience your own world.
