MEET DVF & MICHELLE WILLIAMS’ MEDITATION GURU
Kelly Morris talks eating to look younger, the art of the full-til’-noon breakfast & all things wellness.
Meditation is a practice that’s infamously difficult to nail: all those who have cycled through countless apps or fallen asleep on yoga mats in attempts to pursue it, please raise your hand. But if there’s anyone capable of convincing us to tough it out in the name of gaining some of serious benefits, we’re going to make a wild guess and say that it’s probably going to be Kelly Morris. The (Guru? Spiritual advisor?) teacher and energy coach’s client list ranges from Russell Simmons to Michelle Williams to Diane von Furstenberg; and she’s been practicing yoga and meditation for nearly 30 years—in other words, way before yoga centres became as ubiquitous as Starbucks. She then started teaching and, well, the rest is history. We spoke to Morris about everything from finding yoga practices everywhere she goes, shamanism, eating charcoal and beyond.
On her definition of wellness (shit gets deep):
“Wellness for me is 30 minutes every morning sitting in meditation. If I take the time to sit, I’m golden. If I don’t, I’m in a dark place and no amount of organic green juice, yoga, acupuncture, massage or money can return me to the light.
Our world is suffering from a profound lack of love. It is easy to forget that you are a glorious child of the universe, an integral member of a divine fabric far greater than anything you could ever conceive of. We are in a constant, direct and indelible relationship with the innermost workings of the universe and everything we feel, think, say and do matters. The time for love is now. I also make sure to eat organically and get enough sleep.”
