Yael Flusberg’s meditation journey began as a small child attending an orthodox yeshiva, mesmerized with the rich storytelling and re-imagining that goes into every single sentence in the Bible. She gravitated toward practices like kavanah, which translates as “intention” and is about both the mindset one should be in when engaged in learning and rituals (“with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might”) as well as training yourself to see past the literal into the underlying layers of reality. In her 20s while working as a community organizer and social justice advocate for immigrant and refugee communities, she pursued studies in a range of mindfulness technologies, ranging from Kabbalah to Q’ero Andean to Terevada to Tibetan Buddhism to Yoga. These days, Yael is a sought-after yoga therapist, writer and coach who helps people find resiliency and relief in the midst of transition and loss, and in the aftermath of trauma.
