Breaking Free from the Matrix and Living Mindfully with Carrie-Anne Moss
If you were alive in 1999, you remember hearing about The Matrix movie.
And even if you weren't, you've no doubt heard about it since.
It's an incredible film that started a huge movement in media and our culture.
You'll recognize today's guest on The School of Greatness from those movies - yes, the lead female character, Trinity, was played by Carrie-Anne Moss.
Now, whether or not you like the Matrix films, I am very confident you'll love Carrie.
We were just recently introduced and when we started talking, I was immediately impressed with her mindfulness, calm, and fierce heart.
In our conversation, we go deep - into all parts of life including family, motherhood, disconnecting from technology, self-worth, career, and so much more.
I loved talking to Carrie about all of this, and I was especially inspired by how she has gracefully balanced so many big demands of her time and energy through the years.
I can't wait to hear your thoughts about what we talk about, and for you to hear the stories from her acting career, in Episode 329.
