Declutter Your Mind and Body with Spiritual Minimalism

With Light Watkins

Download MP3

We all have an inner voice that steers our actions and shapes our behaviors. Some refer to it as a gut instinct or listening to your heart. Many people find it challenging to hear what their inner voice says or tells them to do. By embracing a stillness practice and leaning into curiosity, we can turn up the volume on our inner voice to hear and follow it more clearly. 

Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Light Watkins to discuss the concept of spiritual minimalism and how to tune out the surrounding noise and turn up the volume on your inner voice. They also discuss how to better listen to your heart’s voice when faced with big decisions and the secret to cultivating happiness from the inside out. Light also dives into his perspective on spirituality, building community, finding comfort in discomfort, and so much more. 

Light Watkins has been operating in the meditation space since 1998, first as a practitioner, then as an apprentice to his Vedic Meditation teacher, and finally as a teacher himself. He travels worldwide, giving talks on happiness, mindfulness, inspiration, and meditation, and is the leader of popular meditation trainings and retreats.

Light hosts the popular inspirational podcast, The Light Watkins Show, and he writes a popular daily email called Light’s Daily Dose of Inspiration. He founded The Shine Movement, a pop-up variety show on a mission to share the stories of regular people making a difference in the world. His new book, Travel Light: Spiritual Minimalism to Live a More Fulfilled Life, is available for preorder and set to be released on July 18, 2023.
