Sheri Marcantuono of Lotus Wood Journey

Sheri Marcantuono of Lotus Wood Journey sat down to speak with #HipNJ’s Maria Falzo on how being mindful is so important.

Marcantuono is the author of “Become the You Your Younger Self Needed” where she talks about her personal journey and struggles that she faced. She works with high school students where she applies meditation to their lives, helping them breathe and be mindful. She works with kids because she understands they have the same problems as she once had, however today there’s social media. Marcantuono stated. “I aim to teach them before responding with some type of negative remark, that you can’t take back, to take a breath.”

Being aware and mindful is her biggest tip to young teenagers. She discussed the trauma she faced from her life and journey. She comes from a big Italian family, growing up watching her family members do things with no consequences. In high school, she was emotionally stuck and wasn’t able to move forward. Marcantuono was unable to process how her life was, and saw her parents fighting which she thought was how a relationship should be, thus she went through life mimicking that.

Through everything she was going through, Marcantuono developed Bell’s Palsy and GERD. With that, her father also passed away in 2009. This is when she discovered Reiki, spiritual healing and channeling of positive energy. Through this, she found important things about herself she never knew.

She recently did a speaker series with #HipNJ & TENCEL x Athleta where she discusses her journey, talks about her book, and helps others focus on their breathing.
