Mixing Up Midlife


Welcome to Mixing Up Midlife, a weekly show for mid-lifers and empty nesters who want to shake up their middle years one challenge at a time. 

Part reality show, part audio diary and part cocktail hour, join us each week as we Mix up Midlife by doing the things we set aside while we grew our families and careers. 

 

Oct 9, 2020

Terri and Melissa talk Mindfulness and Meditation with Martha Brettschneider, who is a Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute Certified Teacher, author, blogger, speaker, and award-winning nature photographer.

Under the umbrella of her company Damselwings, LLC, her offerings help busy people cultivate daily mindfulness practices to flourish in all aspects of their lives.

Formerly an international economist (U.S. Treasury and International Monetary Fund), Martha stumbled upon mindfulness teachings while recovering from breast cancer in 2009. She chronicles her journey in Blooming into Mindfulness: How the Universe Used a Garden, Cancer, and Carpools to Teach Me That Calm Is the New Happy.

Martha and her husband live in Vienna, VA, where they raised two sons and a myriad of four-legged (and winged) family members. Learn more about Martha’s work at damselwings.com
