    Absolutely loved this interview, Gwen. Thank you for bringing this topic to your people. And for sharing me so generously with them.

    • <3!!!! p.s. you have a meditation album request from VK the VA ;)

  • I would absolutely buy a meditation album by Tanya (and if she wrote a book, it would be a best seller!).

    • RIGHT!? I’m right there with you VK!

      • I think we should start a petition. Tanya is the Danielle LaPorte of the Imposter Syndome!
