Hello everyone, I live in Manly (Sydney) and I love hiking, yoga, biking, reading, writing and laughing so much my belly hurts. I work as a researcher and I’m also very involved in activism. I’ve been doing Emily’s meditations since March. It has helped me reconnect with meditation again many years after having stopped meditating, and thinking I didn’t like it (I used to do a very different kind of meditation). Now I love it, and being part of this community is teaching me a lot about compassion and self-compassion, which is helping in so many ways in everyday life and in my relationships. And it’s making me a more effective activist too.
