If you pay close attention to some of the world’s top performers, you may notice a common thread. Many, if not most, of them credit meditation as a key to their success. Erik Younger is an Army Veteran of Desert Storm, a husband of 27 years, and firm believer in the power of meditation. In fact, he believes in it so strongly, that he founded Vetitation, a nonprofit committed to helping Veterans find peace through the power of meditation. In week’s podcast, we dive into Erik’s personal journey and discovery of the practice and discuss ways that anybody can start, and benefit from, meditation. Over the course of the conversation, we talk about the common misperceptions about meditation, where to start, resources that can help, and how his organization can support.
Erik also has a great TEDx Talk where he lays out the challenges of post-traumatic stress, Veteran suicide, and how he was about to battle both with meditation.
We hope this episode will help to demystify a tool that can be of tremendous help to Veterans, and all of us.
