My guest today is Maija Haavisto who guides and teaches somatic work, imaginal practice, loving-kindness meditation, nondual practices and hypnosis. She is also a novelist, journalist, translator, poet, medical writer, playwright, artist, photographer and disability activist. Maija has written 17 books published in Finland. She maintains the Discord community ‘Mind Is the Gap’, which focuses on the subjects discussed in her books. I truly enjoyed my conversation with Maija and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation, we dive deep into meditation and mindfulness, the impact these practices can have on chronic illnesses, how some people often misuse meditation as a form of escapism, the Alexander Technique, Western and Eastern approaches to overall wellbeing, and the importance of human connection.
