Julie Leoni - Love Being You

Denial, decisions, covid and climate change
I don't know about you, but I've been trying to make sense of the many different and often conflicting information about covid.  I have felt confused, overwhelmed, angry and sometimes like I am going mad trying to make sense of it all.  It seems to me that this is how we feel about climate change, we know something bad is happening, but feel powerless and overwhelmed with what to do about it.  I think covid can teach us about climate change and how to deal with it.

Hi, I'm a secondary school psychology teacher with two teenage sons adapting to these weird covid days and wondering what I can contribute to the world at this time.   I first meditated in India when I was 23 and have practiced mindfulness and mediation in a number of traditions.  I have taught meditation in schools for over 30 years and now I teach yoga as well to people of all ages.  I am a life coach and writer and I regularly blog and am featured in Psychologies Magazine.  I have my own website with free resources and courses at    These podcasts are to help you and your family find ease and acceptance in these fast changing times.  I hope they are of service to you.
