“When I first learned how to meditate, I didn't know that's what I was doing. It was more of mindfulness practice. I would go to this state and I would focus on my five sentences and it just brought me so much peace.” - Shannon Mae
“And I realized that it's okay to take a step back and slow down to build the foundation and, in doing that, I gained a lot of clarity.” - Shannon Mae
“Lean into either your experiences, the place that you've gone. If you haven't, you should travel to those spaces before because I think that really makes the difference.” - Shannon Mae
