Official Becoming Mindful Podcast Trailer

Welcome to the official trailer of our Becoming Mindful Podcast. We are Maria and Jackie and we are Becoming Mindful.

We’re two friends on the path to mindfulness. We’ve teamed up to start this podcast to share our progress and hold ourselves accountable on our own journeys.

As two introverts, we’re stepping out of our comfort zone to ignite conversation and support our work toward mindful living.

Through research, meaningful conversations and our own experiences, we’ll explore different applications of mindfulness and how it intersects with important topics.

Join us on this journey to mindfulness.

See you again when we go live in May.


We are creating a podcast about mindfulness. Stay tuned for the trailer release.
