ABOUT THE HOST

Valeria Teles

Pen Name

I am on a quest for a meaningful life through the exploration of fundamental truths, enlightening ideas, experiences, and insights about physical, mental, and spiritual health.

My aspiration is to awaken new ways of thinking toward a new way of being — Being Well.

Meanwhile, I write, publish books, host a podcast show, meditate, enjoy dancing, and do lots of reading!

As a fitness coach, besides exercise and diet, I suggest daily doses of reflection on life and self-examination.

In the Fit for Joy book, I wrote about the paradox of two realities that don’t match: physical health and mental chaos. The idea was to start a conversation about the “true” meaning of health and spirituality.

“I was a secular rationalist who was skeptical about all things spiritual. While I did not know God, I accepted the concept of God. At age 32, I found God in what I describe as an epiphany. I joined a charismatic church and actually found myself inside a Christian cult.- Rev. Edward Palmer
