June news – Find me on Insight Timer and more

Meditation teacher Anne V Muhlethaler on Insight Timer

How have you been?

Me, I love June. I didn’t love the crazy heatwave we’ve just experienced but I can’t get enough of the light blue sky in front of my eyes, as I type this email to you. 

I have some exciting announcements to share with you and, of course, new podcasts and guided meditations to go with that. 

Firstly, you can now find me on the Insight Timer app. The first few guided meditations have been uploaded and later in July I will start to host live practices via the platform. Look me up here or download the free app if you are new to it. Pre-recorded practices are free, all you need to do is sign up! An easy way to access meditations from me and many wonderful teachers from around the world at the touch of a button.

I’ve also had the pleasure to start offering guided meditations and talks on Klip Global in their trial run. Klip stands for Key Life Indicator Plan and it’s the brainchild of Dr Sri Kalidini, C.B.E, an award winning Leadership, Executive and Life Coach, Consultant Psychiatrist, National NHS Clinical Leader, Ex-Associate Medical Director, Board Chair, Entrepreneur, Wife and Mum of two. After a personal experience of near burnout, Dr Sri’s mission became that much more personal. 

I can relate. Having also fought near burnout (not that I was aware of it at the time) a few years ago, in my previous career, I see the crucial importance of prevention that Dr Sri is putting in place with her project.

Also, unlike many other apps (and perhaps as you’d expect from a psychiatrist), Klip bases their offer on an ecosystem of clinically validated techniques for feeling better, created by an internationally acclaimed team of clinical experts and advisors, providing support for everyone, regardless of what stage of their wellbeing journey they’re on. They aim to offer their services to companies as well as individuals, with a strong emphasis on supporting health professionals. More on this soon, and you can register for interest here. 

For those of you who are young parents, or if you’re considering becoming one, I am excited to tell you that my friend – and fellow graduate from Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield’s MMTCP (Mindfulness Meditation Training Certification Program) – Rachael Katz has just brought out her first book, “The Emotionally Intelligent Child,” co-written with Helen Shwe Hadani. While I haven’t put my hands on a copy just yet (it comes out in Europe July 28th, but is out in the US), here’s what our mentor Solawzi Johnson had to say about it: 

‘There is nice-to-know information, and then there is need-to-know information. The Emotionally Intelligent Child is a must-read book for parents and caregivers looking for need-to-know information and strategies as a guide to raise socially and emotionally intelligent children.’ 

Finally, no in-person or on-land retreats and workshops scheduled at the moment, further dates to be announced soon. Live meditations are still available on Zoom three times per week (camera optional) for those in the mood. Register here or join the Meetup Group for reminders here

Wishing you a lovely rest of the week and month, until next time!

With mettā,
