Rebecca came to beanddo to change and unlearn behaviour that meant she was missing out on life. Understanding how to simply ‘be and not just ‘do’ was life changing. In particular accepting experiences and not resisting was the key to her transformation. Now Rebecca is ready to share her experience and new found knowledge in Modern Meditation.
