He then introduces Dr. Jenelle Kim who gives tips to the audience on how to stay healthy, relating to how many Covid-19 patients are those who do not have a healthy lifestyle. Ken then asks Dr. Kim how people can “know their true selves,” a complex but vital question to well-being. She speaks in-depth about meditation, focusing on “living meditation.”
Dr. Kim briefly goes into the “8 Keys” to improve one’s life, much of which is derived from the teachings of her mentors and her own work. She also breaks down three key concepts as to how we can stop limiting ourselves, which is: 1) To look at our intentions. 2) Move with the Tao. 3) Gratitude.

Ken introduces his next guest, Renee Reisch, who introduces her book Finding Your Voice: Unlock Your Chains and Unleash Your Greatness. She talks about her inspirations for the book and her experience with illness. She reflects on how and why people so often “lose their voice” mentally and emotionally; she relates how finding one’s “voice” is also about finding one’s self and living for one’s self. The segment ends with Renee sharing the moment she finally felt connected to her own spirituality.
Ken and Renee go further in-depth about her book Finding Your Voice. She emphasizes the power of writing and the “take-aways” found at the end of every chapter.
