Superstar Katy Perry went to the Vatican on this past weekend to speak at a conference on scientific advancements in health care. The three-day Unite to Cure conference is co-hosted by the Pontifical Council for Culture and gathers thought leaders from around the world to discuss the future of medicine. The Swish Swish songstress was in a panel alongside an Italian archbishop and a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and Meredith Viera. The American Idol Judge was invited to speak about how a practice known as Transcendental Meditation has helped her gain control over her anxiety and stress.
“I noticed before I started meditating that I started to short-circuit a little bit,” she said during a presentation with her celebrity meditation teacher Bob Roth. “I knew that I had to take care of my mental health and my mind, which is the greatest asset of my body besides my heart. I knew I had to protect it.”
Perry said the “stillness” she’s found with meditation is “beyond anything I’ve ever experienced.”
“It has helped a lot with my anxiety,” she said. “Instead of having to turn to prescription [drugs], I’ve been able to turn to this.”
we love a pop star that uses her platform to raise awareness
