54: Mia Park on Hope, Ancestor Survival, and Creative Resource

Mia Park is powered by hope and engagement. As a Chicago based multidisciplinary artist, Mia shares her passion for discovery through acting, teaching yoga, writing, playing music, producing events, and volunteering. She is fiercely herself and takes every opportunity to live and experience.

In this episode, we explore Mia’s incredible ancestral story of escaping North Korea, the challenges and joys of acting — being Nurse Beth on the show Chicago Med, the lessons of the self in teaching prenatal yoga in jails, and how women can explore their relationship to being a leader.

This episode is followed by a meditation recorded by Mia Park.

It was actually a dream image of Chiang Mai, Thailand, which unfolded into a lifestyle of location-independent living beginning with Thailand, a travel and romantic partner, doing my healing work online and all over the world, and lots of new found inner and outer freedom and empowerment.

If you’re interested in dreaming, I’ve started a series of dream work classes that will support remembering and harvesting dreams, and there’s much more to come about embodying the energies, wisdom, and messages of your dreams.

This first class is about the basics: unfolding and awakening your dream life so that you can harness the power of dreams, how to cultivate the ability to remember your dreams, creating intentions and ways to record and harvest your dreams. This class is free through the end of Jan. ⠀⠀ Dreams are constantly revealing yourself to you and each bring a whole world of embedded knowledge and wisdom, waiting to be seen and bringing you new energies to cultivate in your life, possibility and connection.

Sweet dreams to you…❤
