Jessica talks with Danish yoga and meditation teacher Jeppe Aagaard, and they go straight into talking about meditation, how the mind works, and what we feel during a meditation practice. Jeppe shares why, as a meditation teacher, he strives to guide his students into an emotional response to the practice. This is an interesting and thought provoking episode (notice the length of the episode — Jessica and Jeppe couldn’t stop the conversation, it was that good!). Jeppe also talks about how we retrain the patterns of the brain through meditation, and about his new project teaching meditation in high schools in Copenhagen. Finally, the conversation touches on failure, the lessons we learn from embracing setbacks in life, and how our perception dictates our experience of reality.
