In this episode I talk to Lisa Reinhardt from Wei of Chocolate, who’s been caregiving her parents who are in their 90s. Last month her father passed, and she made the decision to move her mother cross-country even though conventional thought was against it. She describes their adventure, talks about the importance of a community and the power of spaciousness practices to help you tap into your own knowingness to trust yourself, even if the entire world believes you should head in a different direction.
She asks the thought-provoking question:
What bold action would you take, if you knew you couldn’t fail?
After traveling in the Himalayas for 11 years, living in monasteries and doing retreat in a cave, Lisa Reinhardt thought she came back to the US to share what she'd learned about meditation. After an a-ha moment eating chocolate, however, things took a delicious turn. Now, as founder of Wei of Chocolate, Lisa delights in giving people permission to eat chocolate every day without guilt. Having compiled reams of research and distilled what exactly differentiates healthy chocolate from candy, she believes that a daily piece or two of chocolate can be a path to peace & wellness, as well as a way to bring the benefits of meditation effortlessly into our modern, busy lifestyle.
