If you knew me 10 years ago, you would never guess that I would end up traveling the world speaking about meditation. I wouldn’t have guessed it either. I was on Broadway at the time, understudying three of the leads in A Chorus Line. I was also suffering from anxiety, had been struggling with insomnia for eighteen months, and was going grey at the tender age of 26. So here I was living my dream on stage, but backstage I was rocking myself in the fetal position listening to Eckhart Tolle praying I wouldn’t be thrown on with a moment’s notice. I was desperate for a solution, so when a fellow castmember told me she swore by meditation I thought, what do I have to lose?
