"There will never be any lasting fulfilment in trying to escape yourself, or become someone else."
- Elise Catchlove, Ep.116 The Monica Kade Podcast
Welcome to Episode 116 of The Monica Kade podcast, I’m joined by Elise Catchlove, the founder and driving force behind meditation school By Catchlove.
After spending years running a successful business, and working in the fashion industry, Elise saw first-hand the toll that stress takes on people’s lives. Fast-forward a few years; countless hours of meditation, extensive teacher-training, and a newborn baby, Elise’s dedication to the practice and desire to help people has brought her to the launch of Queensland’s first Vedic Meditation School, By Catchlove.
Elise was a delight to chat to. I loved her grounded energy, her truthful attitude towards parenting, meditation and business.
She’s one of those people you meet and feel an immediate bond with, which makes the conversation all that much more enjoyable. I hope this chat inspires you to turn inward and slow down in your life so you can be more of who you truly are.
