Part 1 ~ Matt Ringrose on how to let go of all that’s holding you back.

Dearest you. 

If you’ve been listening to Offline since the beginning or at least since season two, you’ll know about Bondi Meditation Centre founder and Vedic Meditation teacher, Matt Ringrose. He taught me this effortless meditation technique a few months after I launched the podcast in 2018, and it quite simply changed the direction and intention of my life, my work and how I define success.

Matt was just the type of teacher I needed at a time in my life when things felt really hard, sad, anxious and serious. Fast forward three and a half years and Matt remains a steady counsel in my life and also a friend.

We both received such a warm reception for our first episode, so it’s really an honour to bring you another honest conversation with Matt.

We spoke for two hours (!) so I’m publishing it over two episodes. This is part one. We covered a lot of really valuable ground but the thread that weaves its way throughout is letting go. How to let go of all that is holding us back and what becomes possible when we do.

Ok, here’s to letting go of our professional attachments and the definitions of success that don’t serve our evolution. I’m calling it professional peace.

P.S. Matt spent close to a year developing a guided online course called Learn to Let Go and just like Vedic Meditation, it was a transformative learning experience for me so we decided how wonderful to share it with all of you. Our invitation to study with Matt is sprinkled throughout both episodes, but if you miss anything, all of the information you need is detailed here:

Offline is a resource for anyone evolving beyond the traditional ideals of success, to explore professional pathways that are more aligned to their true nature, unique gifts and passions.
