Look Who’s Coming to Camp: Keynote Speaker, Light Watkins

How Failing at Meditation Will Help You Succeed in Life.

In this light-hearted talk, meditation expert Light Watkins will discuss some common misconceptions about meditation, and provide you with real-world markers for success that will make you look forward to failing at your daily stillness practice.

Former Gap fashion model Light Watkins first began attending yoga classes and meditation circles in between castings in New York City. Since 1998, Light has been active in the wellness space, first as a practitioner, and later as an apprentice to his Vedic Meditation teacher, and finally in 2007 as a full-time Vedic Meditation teacher himself. He now travels the world giving talks on happiness, mindfulness, inspiration, and meditation. Light’s most recent book, Bliss More: How to Succeed in Meditation Without Really Trying (Random House) was released in 2018. He writes articles on meditation and happiness, leads sold-out meditation trainings and retreats, and produces The Shine—a global pop-up inspirational variety show with a mission to inspire. Light also sends out a popular daily inspirational email each morning called The Daily Dose of Inspiration. Learn more about Light at: lightwatkins.com
