Peaceful Embodiment Podcast

The Peaceful Embodiment Podcast is brought to you by Wisdom Yoga Institute and created by its co-founders Jean Byrne PhD and Chandrika Gibson ND.

We are researchers, perpetual students, and practitioners of contemplative traditions.

And in this podcast we will be exploring the intersection of spiritual practice, research, and the integration of wisdom traditions into daily life.

You can find all episodes of the podcast here or by searching for “Peaceful Embodiment Podcast” on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

We look forward to bringing you conversations with other practitioners and researchers and how their work relates to peaceful embodiment. First on our list are the topics of death and peaceful embodiment, pain and peaceful embodiment, and more about our own experience and research.

If there is a certain topic you would like us to cover or persons you would like to listen to as our guests, we’d love to hear from you.



Here we share some of our own recorded meditations, free access for all.
