Episode 92: Make Mindfulness Work for You + How to Prepare for Your Level-Up with Dora Kamau

What does mindfulness mean to you? Do you integrate mindfulness into your daily routine?

I have my moments of calmness and I have my moments of not being calm. It’s all a part of the human experience. Mindfulness is about understanding how to leverage certain tools to bring you back to a state of calmness and zen.

Don’t feel guilty about not being calm and centered all the time because we are all human. We are all living a different human experience unique to us. But how can we incorporate mindfulness into our routines as a way to guide us and bring us back to center? 

My guest today is Dora Kamau. Dora is a meditation and mindfulness teacher, who uses meditation as a tool to guide individuals in experiencing who they truly are. Unshaken and impenetrable by the qualms of life, Dora utilizes her own lived experience to guide in-person and online gatherings for women to connect through intentional conversations. Over the last 2 years, she has led thousands in meditation with individuals participating from all over the world and from all walks of life.

In November 2017, Dora founded Bliss Your Heart, a flourishing women’s community-based in Vancouver, in which she’s hosted workshops focused on self-care, self-love, and mental health. With a calling for compassion-centered care, Dora is also a registered psychiatric nurse that integrates holistic, trauma-informed practices for women living with substance dependence and mental illness. In 2020, she completed Sumi Touch’s All Black Doula training to continue to support expecting birth folks in marginalized communities.

Her work in the community has aligned her with brands such as Headspace, Insight Timer, NBC, lululemon, Reebok, Little Burgundy, Saje Natural Wellness, Call it Spring, and many others.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Dora’s journey into mindfulness + meditation
  • How teaching and guiding others has impacted Dora’s own mindfulness practice
  • Keeping yourself centered when life gets tough
  • What we can do to help others care for themselves
  • Personal development and how to prepare yourself for growth + opportunities
