This week I went for a hike at this spot just outside Pasadena, California called "Echo Mountain." It was about an hour and a half hike up to the top where there is an old abandoned railway station. It was so quiet up there I was inspired to make a video for you. I don't listen to music when I hike. I like the silence and I like to focus on my breath. So I thought I'd make a video talking about some of the benefits of meditation that I have observed in my own practice.
