Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 54: Dance Like No One Is Watching with Jaycee Gossett

Jaycee Gossett believes that if you’re not moving, you’re dying. In addition to helping her manage stress, Jaycee recognized her love for dance by the way it always made her feel more like herself. It is the thing that lights her up, energizes her, and makes her feel connected to the universal energy that surrounds us. She is on a mission to get the world to dance and move as a way to express energy and cleanse the body. Whatever creative movement makes your body happy, Jaycee wants you to do more of that.

Jaycee Gossett is a Founding Teacher and the VP of Experience at The Class by Taryn Toomey. As a teacher of The Class she guides her students to move beyond the intensity of the surface to seek the empowering, expressive freedom within.

Today Jaycee and I discuss the therapeutic benefits of dance and movement, the physical and emotional release that it brings, and how it gives us a deeper connection to our mind, body, and soul.

I loved talking with Jaycee about the power of dance and movement, and it’s connection to the health of our mind, body, and soul. Remember, we are all dancers at heart, we only need to move our bodies in a creative way that feels right and good for us. Get out there and dance!

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 50:The Whole Person with Tiffany Cruikshank

Tiffany Cruikshank is a woman of many talents in the world of wellness. As a trouble maker in her early teens, she struggled to find purpose and meaning in her life. During that time, Tiffany discovered yoga and met an herbalist at a wilderness camp who would take her on plant walks, where she fell in love with learning how to use the environment around us to heal.  

Tiffany is the founder of Yoga Medicine, a community of teachers focused on fusing anatomy & western medicine with traditional yoga practices to serve the medical communities. She’s trained thousands of teachers around the world, has graced the cover of over 15 magazines, is a regularly featured expert in many major media outlets, the author of 2 books and has over 150 classes on various topics on YogaGlo.com. With her background in Acupuncture, Sports Medicine and Women’s Health, Tiffany has worked with professional athletes & celebrities, run her own clinics, and created & ran the Acupuncture program at Nike WHQ in addition to teaching yoga there. Tiffany also founded & runs 2 nonprofits, one conducts research on yoga’s therapeutic benefits and the other supports a shelter for women rescued from trafficking in Delhi, India.

Today Tiffany and I discuss Chinese Medicine, the idea of bringing the whole person into balance to allow the body to be more resilient, and how yoga can be a great tool for teens as well as adults to combat stress and support both our mental health and our hormones.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I loved Tiffany’s suggestion to become the observer and to befriend our thoughts and judgments. By making peace with the layer of ourselves that judges everything, and empathizing with ourselves first, it makes it easier for us to empathize with the world around us.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 46: Legendary Love with Jamie Rea & Kelsey Grant

Jamie Rea and Kelsey Grant believe that true intimacy introduces us to our true selves and that we must face the depths of our own pain in order to call in legendary love. Prior to meeting, both experienced traumatic breakups and dove deep into their shadow work and personal healing. It provided them the foundation and the tools needed to create a healthy, conscious relationship. 

Jamie Rea & Kelsey Grant are love and relationship coaches, Co-Hosts of the Power Couple Podcast, as well as Co-Founders of the online relationship school The Legendary Love Academy. They’re intent on bringing you all the essential love skills you need while having loads of fun along the way. Learning doesn’t have to be lame. In fact, when it comes to learning skills for love, dating and partnership, having fun and enjoying the process only make it stick faster and more efficiently. Their mission is to honour the sacred spaces of healing, repair and old hurts while also knowing when humour, lightness and open-hearted fun are needed. 

Today Jamie, Kelsey, and I dig deep into what makes a great love relationship work, and how to create one through intention, self-awareness, and open communication. We talk about understanding our triggers and how to work through them, the the benefit of finding someone who is willing to do the work with you, and how to own the ways that you contribute to the relationship, whether good or bad.

Let’s dig in. 

Thank you for joining me today! I loved this conversation so much. I could talk about love forever. I love Jamie and Kelsey’s advice to seek for wholeness over happiness, and to meet ourselves fully within so that we may embrace the magical connection to the world around us. Remembering that self-acceptance breeds so much power, and the most valuable thing we own is our story.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 38: Matrescence: The Birth Of A Mother with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

Amy Taylor-Kabbaz studies the profound new concept, “Matrescence,” that has been researched by Columbia University and covered by psychologists worldwide. She truly believes that we should support mothers so they understand the transition between lives when becoming a mother.

After more than a decade covering breaking news and current affairs for the ABC around her home country of Australia, her “traditional” career took an unexpected turn when she found herself lost, overwhelmed and diagnosed with a thyroid condition after the birth of her first daughter. She is now the author of the bestselling Happy Mama: The Guide To Find Yourself, the host of the The Happy Mama Movement podcast, runs numerous online programs for mothers all over the world, is an international award-winning coach, the creator of the #1 iTunes meditations for children Bedtime Explorers, and is currently working on her next two books, to be published by Hay House international.

Amy take us through her journey from self to mother, and then the work born from the struggle to find identity within her new role. We talk about society’s expectations of womanhood and motherhood, and the perceived failures if your birth story or identity doesn’t fall in line with those notions. She encourages us to lean into our transition so as not to become overwhelmed or burnt out trying to fit into a box that isn’t meant for us.

I love Amy’s reminder that matrescence continues as you grow as a mother and woman. She offers us the opportunity to see ourselves born as Oracles and wise woman because of our new lens and love her gorgeous path to healing and honoring the mother.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 35: Leaving Good with Ashley Callen

Ashley Callen believes you have to leave good to get to great, but it wasn’t an easy road. In 2014 she tested positive for the BRCA 1 gene mutation, most commonly known as the breast cancer gene. Directly after choosing to have a preventative double mastectomy, something she calls both the hardest and easiest decision she’s ever made, her husband Dave was severely injured in a helicopter crash which left him with a broken back and a collapsed lung. While the parents of toddlers healed – Ashley preparing for reconstructive surgery and Dave in physical therapy – they also realized they were just surviving, in all ways, and life is too short to settle for “good.”

Ashley and I talk about the emotional fallout of removing her breasts and what she saw as the sign of her femininity, the power of the family she has found within Police Wives of America, and the tough work Dave and Ashley had to face in order to strengthen their marriage after difficulty. 

We get deep in relationships and talk about communication, compassion and hard conversations. Ashley also shares the rough spaces she and Dave navigated that then put them in the spotlight as national speakers for Bless the Badge Law Enforcement conferences and became the foundation of the book they are co-writing that drops later this year.

Let’s dig in.

Thank you for joining us today. I love how deep Ashley went with me in talking about the importance of communication and how conflict is many times the door you need to enter to take your relationship from good to great.

Unraveling: The Messy Business of Letting Go

BethanyPaige-3267

I am currently between lives. In the best way possible, so it stunned me when I found out that changing careers would bring about a bit of a catharsis.

There are a lot of cliches being thrown at me about endings, beginnings and letting go. I want to shake the people and say, “I may be just a number to you, a cog in the wheel, a person who took up space, but this was my LIFE.”

Or more correctly, my identity.

This process of unraveling has helped me understand that in the end, it is the person moving on who has wrapped their identity in their title, their paycheck, their perception of their own value. It was my choice to change gears, and don’t get me wrong, I am inordinately excited about what is next. But, there is the withering away, the dying of the aspiration to achieve this career that is ending, the closing up of the office you once walked into with big eyes and a sense of utter accomplishment. But you got used to coming into that office and sitting at that desk, and it lost its shine. You realized there is something bigger for you than that desk, and the chair you spun around in, and the view you had out of your window.

Then one day you pack up that office and it feels…. like a little death.

You are dying to the you that you imagined in other daydreams, other vision boards, other meditations, and visualizations. You are dying to the person you built with blood, sweat, tears and a hell of a lot of regulatory permissions and licenses. You built something, but you are dismantling it. On purpose.

And you grieve alone.

A business, an institution, does not have the ability to grieve you in the same way you grieve who you have become within their hallways and offices.

In the process of the dying is the birth of new. The renewed excitement as the seedlings take root. The realization that I may just have a style that doesn’t include lined dresses and razor-sharp high heels. The realization that I don’t have to spend so much energy figuring out how to hide the tattoo I thought was such a great idea when I was 22, but that I’ve spent my career disavowing and hiding under well-placed straps and high backs, never wearing white.

I thought that maybe I should get a new tattoo to mark my new life, which caused my boyfriend to look at me sideways, “This is a career change, not a life crisis, right?”

I suggested it only be a half sleeve of the dragon I’m becoming and then he breathed really heavy as I laughed, “Just a little word or something, something small, that means something big to me.”

I’m not married to the tattoo. It was a waxing and waning moment that reminded me I’m still a rebellious teen somewhere in there, my parents would not be surprised. What I am married to is the new. This big, beautiful new life that I am building with one word, comma, and paragraph at a time. This new platform where I get to say the things that burn within my chest to help even one girl or woman at a time to be the biggest, baddest versions of themselves.

This new life I am choosing.

It always comes down to choice.

Once upon a time, I chose a path that I explored, and God I made it something. There were castles and beautiful hills, and yes, some treacherous valleys, but I chose and then I created.

Now, I’m choosing again and I have faith in the power of my choices and my ability to co-create with that which is bigger than I am.

So, I will die the deaths and unravel. I will surrender to what is pulling me through to the other side. It will be messy and glorious much like childbirth – ugly and magical all the same.

In my unraveling is brilliance, faith, and choice and to be honest….

I can’t wait to meet the version of myself I am becoming.
