Mental Health Awareness with Sara Troy and her guest Nina Purewal, on air from June 1st
Mindfulness has been a buzzword for the past few years and the number of people practicing in the US has tripled in the past decade. Yet, many people don’t know the real principles behind it. It involves self-love, forgiveness, compassion, authenticity, and perspective. Nina has 20 years of experience in mindfulness and a wealth of authentic strategies to share, including some from her year living in an ashram.
Nina can eloquently discuss how these tools can be used to address pandemic stressors, those with working or schooling from home, dealing with uncertainty, stress over racial tensions, grief, and all the other daily calamities.
Having dealt with her own personal trauma, losing her entire nuclear family, including her brother and father as a teen in a horrific tragedy, she has a unique perspective on how to leverage mindfulness in these difficult times. When Nina was 16, her parents were having marital troubles. Luckily, her mother came home from work early to take her shopping. While they were out, her father killed her brother and committed suicide by setting fire to the family home. This horrific experience put Nina on a 20-year path toward Mindfulness and Forgiveness and living an authentic life.
While Let That Sh*t Go is a light mantra, it is not an easy path. The premise of letting go is knowing that our true nature is joy, bliss & peace, but we have too much sh*t in the way to experience who we really are.
Now, more than ever we need guidance on how to navigate a world where so much is out of our control. We’re faced with confusion, loss, uncertainty and so many unexpected emotions as we face political divides, riots, pandemic-based health concerns and the many challenges found in everyday life. Nina’s book goes beyond the typical, trendy narrative of “tossing out the negative thoughts, instead of teaching us how to face and navigate through them in order to live a free and peaceful life.
After climbing the corporate ladder for nearly a decade, Nina left her flourishing career to take a year sabbatical. She moved to California to unplug and continue her pursuit for happiness while living in an ashram. It was at a peak point of stress sparked by the corporate grind that she took this drastic step to change her life. The outward move allowed Nina to look deeper inward. She wanted to see if there was a way to take ancient wisdom and apply it to modern day stressors and this led her to an international bestselling book and the founding of Pure Minds.
She runs mindfulness and meditation workshops for the public and corporate sector and has worked with over 50 companies, some of her biggest clients to date include Dyson, PepsiCo, lululemon, Deloitte & Under Armour.
