TAMPA, FLORIDA — This coming Sunday, May 21st, is World Meditation Day, and the timing couldn’t be more appropriate.
In a world that seems unstable, chaotic and scary, Katie Krimitsos is determined to provide more peace and calm through her guided meditations. In 2018, Krimitsos created the Women’s Meditation Network, creating meditations from her closet and sharing them through her original podcast Meditation for Women. Five years later, she now has 14 podcasts under the Women’s Meditation Network, a team of 18 people around the globe, and reaches women in 186 countries.
Aligned perfectly with World Meditation Day on May 21st and Mental Health Awareness Month, Krimitsos is celebrating an impressive milestone – 100 million downloads, a number only achieved by 0.1% of all podcasts.
“The world needs more calm,” Krimitsos said. “The darkness and suffering out there can be really overwhelming and scary. But I really believe that if I can provide more opportunities for people to feel calm, rested, and connected with themselves, they will each spread more kindness and love. And that makes a global impact.”
According to this article from Disturb Me Not, it’s estimated that between 200 and 500 million people meditate worldwide and, “In recent years, the meditation stats show that the practice has been gaining in popularity.”
One of Katie’s listeners wrote, “Thank you for everything you’ve done for my own mental health and well-being. I’ve gone through some really tough challenges the past few years and decided to do more meditation. You have been such a bright light of hope for me. Thank you so much for the work you do, it’s really changing lives.”
A mom of two young daughters, ages 4 and 7, Krimitsos believes anyone can meditate and wants to share the tool of meditation with as many people as possible.
“These meditations are meant to be easily approachable so that anyone can listen and receive the benefits,” said Krimitsos.
The newest addition to the network, “Meditation for Moms” just launched May 1st.
