Ep 400 – Beyond the Physical with Angie Parris-Raney

A woman stands motionless between a bustling intersection.

We often define ourselves by how busy we are—always looking outward instead of inward. In this episode of The ABMP Podcast, Darren speaks with Angie Parris-Raney—licensed massage therapist and Chopra Center Certified in meditation and Ayurvedic lifestyle— about the peripheral modalities that led her to meditation, styles and types of meditations that can be practiced, and some of the specific mechanics of the mantra meditation.
