Tom Cronin is a meditation teacher, speaker and the founder of The Stillness Project, a global movement to inspire one billion people to sit in stillness, daily.Tom is passionate about reducing stress and chaos in people's lives, propelled by his own experiences of crisis after working for 26 years as a bond and swap broker in Sydney - something he likens to a Wolf of Wall Street existence. Tom discovered meditation in the early stages of this career, when the anxiety and chaos he was experiencing hit a crisis point, and it completely transformed his world - both personally and professionally.Today Tom is a leading meditation teacher, coach and speaker, and has an unwavering commitment to cultivating calm and promoting a sense of abundance. Tom's dedication to this life-giving work has seen him spend the past seven years working on a documentary and book - called The Portal - an experiential and genre-defining approach to personal change. The Portal asks the question - what would happen if 7 billion people all meditated? How can we really change the world? Could it shift the trajectory of our planet from the current crisis we're in?We discuss the science, benefits and potential of meditation, the opportunity within crisis and moving from breakdown to breakthrough.Tom is generous in sharing advice and resources - you can download resources through The Portal and read his tips on breaking phone addiction here.Enjoy!
