In the season finale of Kun, the Journey to Be, I interview Reema Bin Abbasi, a counseling psychologist and we talked about Mindfulness and Meditation. We defined them, talked about their benefits, how can we incorporate them into our daily lives. We talk about the trendiness of Mindfulness, how that has its own advantages and disadvantages. We shed light on the limitations of the English language when it comes to feelings. I hope you enjoy the season finale of Kun, The Journey to Be with Reem Shaheen, and stay tuned for Season 2 of the show.
