from crisis to connection podcast Sep 02, 2021

I had the privilege of interviewing one of my favorite thought leaders, Jacob Hess. We talked about one of his specialities, mindfulness, and how we can apply these principles to addiction and trauma. It's a fascinating discussion full of great insights.

Specifically, we discuss:
His definition of mindfulness
How he sees mindfulness improving people's lives
How mindfulness can help with addiction, mental health, sexuality, and even faith crises How mindfulness can help those who have been betrayed or deeply injured
How one can begin a mindfulness practice
