Ever wonder what could happen if you simply said yes to life? My guest Kimberly Braun invites us on her journey to discover the transformative power of embracing life's opportunities. Uncover her pivotal childhood experience of deep presence and how it shaped her worldview towards living from divine love. Alongside us, explore the concept that we are all here for a noble purpose, and the magic that happens when we let our love and curiosity for life break us free from our limitations.


Life doesn't come with a script, and Kimberly shows us that embracing each moment as a potential lesson can lead us to a deeper understanding of our human experience. The conversation turns to moments of silence and presence, and how these moments can become transformative. Kimberly shares her personal story of building a monastery from a moment of silence, reminding us of the importance of being open to the universe's synchronicities and order.


Our journey culminates in an exploration of inner stillness and surrender. Listen as Kimberly recounts her profound realization that she spoke about on her TED Talk and how surrendering to her core desires led to the creation of a permanent monastery. We discuss the challenges that arise after saying yes to a desire, and practices to stay committed, such as drawing close to inspiration and tapping into the infinite field of intelligence. This conversation promises to be an eye-opener on the power of surrender and the magic that unfolds when we stay true to our core desires.
