Jim and Jennifer welcome Vanessa Guild to the show today.  Her meditation studies began over 12 years ago under Dr. Benjamin Wren, a Jesuit Priest and Zen Master, author of Zen Among the Magnolias. Hurricane Katrina took Vanessa's city, home and all personal belongings; for 2 weeks she had no knowledge of her father, mother or friends. Vanessa knew "breathing" and "calming the mind" techniques, but Hurricane Katrina forced her to "live" them...at an entirely different level, while finding her loved ones and then having to rebuild her entire life. Vanessa received a B.A. in International Religious Studies from Southern Methodist University (SMU), having studied all the major world religions and has a minor in Corporate Communications & Public Affairs. Prior to SMU, Vanessa attended Tulane University, New Orleans, where she was a Tulane University Legislative Scholar. She was trained extensively by international speaker / award winning author Azim Khamisa in his forgiveness and meditation workshops. Vanessa co-facilitated programs in Australia and the USA with Mr. Khamisa. Vanessa can precisely explain how to meditate and calm the mind. Website:  www.vanessaguild.com
