For Life on Purpose Episode #30, my guest is meditation teacher, spiritual teacher, and counselor Diana Lang, the director/owner of LifeWorks – Center for Growth in Los Angeles.
Diana joins me for an excellent conversation about all things meditation, as well as consciousness, spirituality, her life story (her father invented the Chapman Stick, a unique musical instrument that I’ve long been a fan of!), and the updated version of her book Opening to Meditation: A Gentle, Guided Approach.
“The benefits of meditation on the mind, body and spirit are more widely recognized than ever before. Over the last decade, scientific studies have shown what has long been known – meditation works. But how does one begin to practice what is often considered an abstract and mystifying activity?”

About Opening to Meditation:
In Opening to Meditation, she demonstrates that meditating is as simple as breathing. There is no mystery to it. Her instruction goes to the core, avoiding the analytical theory, fixed rules, and intellectual razzmatazz that often intimidate would-be practitioners. Instead, she shows us how to reconnect with our foundational essence of soul and self, where peace and centeredness are always and everywhere available.
