By Melissa :
I found this podcast very interesting due to my career goals and interests. I love the concept of meditation and practicing mindfulness. Trauma victims are very prone to living in the past rather than the present, so to practice a concept about living in there here and now is a great principle with meditation. I hope to do more holistic methods in my career revolving around meditation, yoga, aroma therapy, and other forms of more natural methods to cure symptoms of a disorder. Personally, I have a friend who use to have really bad anxiety and would get panic attacks daily. She started to attend meditation classes and learned the process. Now she incorporates this into her daily life and has told me that she has less anxiety and barely has any panic attacks. It's wonderful to hear that such a natural approach can be so beneficial in today's overly medicated society.
