Let that Sh*t Go

with Nina Purewal

About the Episode

Today, we welcome Nina Purewal to the podcast. Nina is a keynote speaker, bestselling author, podcast host, mental health advocate, executive grief ambassador, ex-CPG marketer, and founder of Pure Minds Inc., a social enterprise that conducts mental wellness and mindfulness workshops for the corporate and public sectors. Nina has been studying mindfulness for over 20 years and practicing meditation for over a decade. 

She joins us to day to discuss the book, Let that Sh*t Go: Find Peace of Mind and Happiness in your Everyday, which she co-authored with Kate Petriw.

After experiencing a devastating tragedy, Nina embarked on a journey to find answers and sought solace in mindfulness practices. Despite initially following a traditional path and obtaining a business degree, Nina eventually reached a breaking point with the stress of corporate life. In search of change, she took a year-long sabbatical, living in an ashram or monastery and disconnecting from the outside world. Upon returning, Nina realized the incredible potential of sharing ancient wisdom with those struggling with anxiety, stress, and depression. 

In 2011, when mindfulness and meditation were not widely discussed, she re-entered the corporate world and later started her own business, Pure Minds. Through corporate workshops and community sessions, Nina teaches individuals how to let go of negative emotions and self-limiting beliefs. 

Nina is fueled by her love for empowering others through ancient wisdom and fostering peace and grounding through mindfulness and meditation. She continues to learn and grow on her personal journey while sharing her insights with the world.
