Exploring the Intersection of Art and Meditation with Tola Oguntoyinbo

Green 85

I recently had the privilege of reconnecting with an old friend of mine, Tola Oguntoyinbo, an artist and entrepreneur living in Chapel Hill, NC.

I had a blast in this conversation with Tola. In addition to exploring how meditation practice compliments his art, we explored Tola’s life-changing experience on a 10-day Vipassana Silent Retreat.

Vipassana–a non-sectarian technique which focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body–is one of India’s most ancient meditation techniques.

If you’ve been curious about going on a retreat yourself, definitely check this out. Or, if you’ve struggled with stress, I think you’ll find this interview helpful.

If you liked this interview with Tola on Vipassana Meditation, you’ll love these other interviews and articles focused on Vipassana: OM064: How To Practice Vipassana Meditation
