Let It In with Guy Lawrence

Oct 4, 2021

#189 Today, I’m here with the wonderful Matt Omo to talk about the highs and lows of spiritual practices. During our conversation today, we talk about the meaning of spirituality and mystical experiences, whether there is a goal to painful experiences, and how a change in perspective can contribute positively to our lives.

If you find yourself wanting to bring more joy, wonder, and awe into your life then this is the episode for you.

“What we've just uncovered is, spirituality is the being open to a sense of awe and mystery that allows for an openness and a shift in perception.”

About Matt: Matt Omo is a leader of the sound healing movement in Australia with over 15 years of experience working with a variety of sound healing techniques bridging cultures and traditions from around the world.
