Reading Time: 7 minutes

You know those moments when you meet someone and there’s something deep inside of you that somehow knows you were meant to connect? That’s exactly what happened when I met the creator of Wild Heart Family, Taryn Longo.

Taryn is the mother of two children, Jackson (4) and Rabia (1). She is a birth and postpartum doula, Living Meditation teacher and the wife of David Wagner, the meditation expert for Yogaglo, Kripalu, and Omega Institute. Taryn has a gentle voice, a witty sense of humor and a beautiful understanding of how to live a life that’s true to yourself.

Over the last year a lot of things have unfolded for Taryn. She had a second child, moved to the opposite side of the country and started a new business. During our conversation, she opened up to me about the various challenges that have come up for her this year and how she learned to be more observant of what’s happening inside of her.

What I learned from our chat is that Taryn has an incredible ability to truly listen to her inner guidance system. This became clear to me when she spoke about a particular experience that pulled her to move from NYC to California this year. She told me about a moment when she was standing on a busy NYC street, surrounded by hundreds of people, when she suddenly realized that she had never felt more alone in her life. It was that moment, along with many other signs that led her to eventually follow her heart and move her family to California. To Taryn, it wasn’t about one place being better than the other, it was about what was right for her and her family.

It’s this woman’s confidence, humbleness and inner wisdom that makes me so happy to share this interview with all of you.
