Welcome to the Tune In Podcast with Rena Reiser, where it’s all about real women and their journeys.

It’s the place to slow down and tune into what we really need, what’s at the root of our struggles, and what’s really important to us.

I’ll share powerful mind body tools, compassion based methods, meditations and insights that I use along my own journey and in my work with my clients, so we can all connect to our inner power and live life from a mindful and conscious place.

If you liked my podcast and want more, I’ve created a free resource.

It’s called my Tune In Journal.

It’s an 8 step simple downloadable guided exercise with an accompanying meditation that’ll allow you to:

– Feel your feelings,
– Listen to what your body and soul are trying to tell you,
– And tune into your inner wisdom so you can hear what you need and get profound insights along the way.

So head over here to download it, and let me know about your experience using it.
