Mover Monday is here and we’re super excited to introduce our friend and all around awesome dude, Alexander Dent! This meditation guru and energy healer (with the best laugh EVER!) taught at our last retreat in Brooklyn and is back to teach in LA at our International Self Care Day Urban retreat on July 24th! Check out what he has to day:
Moved LA: How would you describe yourself?
Alex: I am looking to inspire people to find their way on the path to inner peace, tranquility and enlightenment through meditation. It is my goal as a healer to relieve illness and injury in the body for greater clarity and physical well being.
Moved LA: What’s your story?
Alex: I began practicing meditation over 10 years ago during a very difficult time in my life. The practice transformed me inside and out in a truly authentic way. I teach people how to begin a sound meditation practice or adjust their current practice according to ancient Raja Yoga techniques.
Moved LA: Why do you do this work?
Alex: Everyone on planet earth is searching for happiness. I teach meditation because I know that any application of the practice to one's life, brings the practitioner closer to that goal.
Moved LA: Who is your role model, and why?
Alex: Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha - He attained enlightenment through his own means, devotion and earnestness to the practice of meditation, a birthright granted to all who walk the path in equal measure.
Moved LA: If you could give everyone one piece of advice on their health and wellness, what would it be?
Alex: Follow your heart. Go freely on the winding path it will inevitably take you. It always knows best.
Moved LA: If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Alex: The power to change all forms of matter with thought alone. That one covers all the bases :-)
Moved LA: What are you top three favorite things to do when you have time off?
Alex: Meditate, Socialize, Hobbies
Moved LA: Who are the top 3 people/companies you are following to stay informed?
Alex: I follow topics about entertainment, sustainable design & technology and intergalactic space.
Moved LA: What’s up next for you?
Alex: The ability to do my work anywhere in the world at will.
