Highest Self Podcast®

Jul 5, 2022

“Just close your eyes, breathe and try not to think of anything.” Easier said than done! Have you ever wondered how meditation actually works? If the goal is actually to have no thoughts? And what if you more resonate with breathwork or movement? In this conversation with meditation teacher and Open co-founder Manoj Dias, we dive into all your meditation questions including “If I am not my thoughts, what are they?” and “Is there a certain amount of time I need to meditate to feel the benefit?” We also dive into his dharma (purpose) journey on going from a young boy in Sri Lanka infatuated by monks, to forgetting it all and focusing on marketing, then coming back into it to create his meditation studio and now the Open App. This is an inspiring conversation for any aspiring entrepreneur who is wanting to create a mission that is in alignment with their spiritual selves!
