Hi everyone I am Owen Morgan. I have been in the wellbeing industry for 10 years and interviewed 100's of people on my podcast in the hope to learn all about healing, transformation and trauma recovery.
I have read many books, listened to 100's of podcasts and completed courses in my mission to understand what it is to be human and how to heal my pain, suffering and overcome stress and anxiety.
After years of being a personal trainer, massage therapist and coach I still felt stuck, lost and running many of the historic behaviours
and habits that controlled my life and
kept my world small.
I was / I am a huge overthinker, emotionally chaotic, very rigid with how I live and controlled by experiential avoidance.
I have heard of countless ways to heal, become more present, find purpose, process trauma, live more mindfully and find peace.
I knew it all conceptually.
After finding new habits, practices and meditation techniques hard to implement in my life I realised I was still struggling with the same things day to day.
I had hours and hours of therapy, coaching and bodywork and still remained slightly anxious, shutdown and full of fear.
I realised I needed to try out all the things I had heard on my podcast and read in the books.
It was time to see what all these wellbeing practices could really do for me.
This birthed the 'Awareness Space Experiment'
A year long meditation and embodiment experiment. With the mission to discover how my life would change when I lived in a more present, mindful and body aware manner.
At the turn of my 39th birthday I began the journey and wanted to reflect and share what
I learn along the way with you.
