jeannine-morris When I first met Gabby Bernstein back in April, I had no idea my life would be forever changed – for the better.  As a freelance journalist who thrives off of the energy of the hustle and bustle of NYC, I’ve found the time and interest to begin following a spiritual path.  Through meditation, Hatha yoga and workshops I’m more present and centered than ever before.  And this is only the beginning.
