Jay is a great guy and I so enjoyed this conversation. I found Jay through his terrific course on cultivating gratitude on Insight Timer. Jay is a deep practicioner, and does a terrific job of explaining the science of mindfulness practice, why it is often hard to access gratitude regularly, and how to have gratitude become a habit.
Jay Chodagam is a meditation teacher, TEDx speaker, producer of Peace in the Park festival and SPIRIT Summit conference and host for the Wise Leader retreats. After training as a monk and living in an ashram for 18 years, he is being called to create experiences that combine meditation, adventure and exotic travel.
He has hosted retreats, conferences and festivals since 2004 and traveled to 59 countries with the intention to help people develop SQ (spiritual quotient), to live happy and fulfilling lives, to become successful human BEINGS instead of human doings. Travel has offered Jay more wisdom than his two engineering degrees and he wants to share that.
