QuaranTimes: Guided Meditation


Overactive thoughts, cabin fever, and anxiety - oh my! 

What’s a brain to do when staying at home leaves it frazzled and freaked out? We speak with Ed Kizer - therapist, outdoors enthusiast, yogi, and expert napper - about taking the plunge and beginning a home meditation practice. Spoiler - no need to be a spiritual rockstar to begin.

We’ll cover what meditation is, how to do it, and then we’ll practice! Visit our website for more info on Ed, free meditation resources, and past episodes: mentalnotepodcast.com 


About Me:

Yogi, healer, outdoorsman, life partner, parent...I am very grateful for the many opportunities my life has presented. From the Patagonian wilderness to the Buddhist Zendo and the dorms of a southern boys boarding school, I've been blessed with challenge, heartache, insight, a deep calling to a higher consciousness and to live a simple, purposeful life. Comfortable in the wilderness, laying out framing for a deck and discussing the intricacies of financial, planning - I am always working to achieve balance through independence, connection and spiritual practice. 

Fun facts:

  • My great grandfather, Caleb Bradham, invented Pepsi Cola in his drug store in the early 1900's, subsequently losing the business after a crash in the sugar market.
  • ​In 2007, I led a 22 day whitewater rafting trip down the Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park.
  • In the Fall of 2016, I served on the Medic Healer Council for the Dakota Access Pipeline Protest on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota
  • I love to nap!
