In this episode, I have the chance to speak with Yael Shy, who I first met and heard speak at the National Association of College and University Chaplains Annual Conference. She spoke on rest as resistance and revolution, and after hearing it, I knew I needed to get her on this podcast.

Yael is the Senior Director of NYU’s Global Spiritual Life Center, Founder and Director of MindfulNYU, which is the largest campus-wide mindfulness initiative in the country, and the author of the book, What Now? Meditation for Your Twenties and Beyond.

Yael shares how meditation has revolutionized her life, rekindled her faith, and allowed her the tools to manage anxiety and stress. She also guides us through a short meditation at the end of this episode. 

You can learn more about Yael on her website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Some resources Yael recommends in this episode are: Tea and Cake with Demons; The Way of Tenderness; Ten Percent Happier; and Journey Live.
