After working as an actress on Broadway for over 10 years, Emily Fletcher found herself in a constant stressed out state of fight or flight.

She was also sick and struggling with insomnia. 

Her stress also started to surface in the form of going gray in her 20s.

It wasn’t until she started to learn about meditation that she finally found some relief.

As you’ll hear more about in this episode, this seemingly simple practice turned out to be transformative for Emily, a leading expert in meditation now.

She was able to heal her body, sleep through the night, and even her pesky grays went away.

After seeing these amazing results personally, Emily knew she wanted to share the gift of meditation with the masses.

She went on to start teaching it and knew that she could go even deeper than this.

So she eventually did and created her Ziva Meditation method, which covers mindfulness, meditation, and manifestation, three key ingredients that truly transformed her life.

And now she sees the same things happening in her clients from around the world.

In this podcast episode, you’ll learn more about this unique meditation method, why it differs from most, why it’s so effective, and how you can put it into practice starting today.

If you’re on the fence with meditation, or you’ve tried it before without success, Emily’s eye-opening tips can help.

She’ll show you why this practice is so important and beneficial before diving into what you can do to stay consistent.
