Alternative healing and mental health awareness is becoming more important and more popular. One thing Veterans are trying out is meditation. Meditation can be defined as a practice where an individual focuses their mind on a particular object, thought or activity to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. Like many Veterans, I have tried mediation and enjoy it, but I struggle with regular practice.
When I first exited the military, I got involved with a brand called Veteran Empire which was led by my friend Alfred “Alphi” Quitevis. Alphi was hustling with school, a business, and a busy social life. He noticed it started catching up with him and he put it all aside to explore the world and himself. During this exploration, he studied and practiced meditation. Now, he’s an expert on the subject with plenty of insight to offer.
I watched Alphi go through this transition and followed him along his journey. I knew he’d be the right guy to discuss meditation and how it can apply to Veterans. He’s going to talk to us about his time in the Corps, becoming too busy, becoming less busy, and finding meditation.
