Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 32: The Busy Brain Cure with Dr. Romie Mushtaq

Dr. Romie Mushtaq, MD has nearly 20 years of authority in neurology, integrative medicine, and mindfulness, and is a leading physician on a mission to transform the brain health of companies, leaders, and organizations.

After undergoing life-saving surgery herself, Dr. Romie traveled around the world learning mindfulness-based techniques. She now speaks and consults with Fortune 500 companies, professional athletes, and global associations. Her unique expertise is routinely featured in national media such as Forbes, NBC, Fox Business, NPR, TED talks, and dozens of other national media outlets. She is one of the first physicians appointed Chief Wellness Officers for a corporation- Evolution Hospitality, steering the mindfulness and wellness initiatives of over 6000 employees & hosts their podcast Wellness Evolved.

If your personality doesn’t arrive until you’ve had coffee, and you find your mind racing when it is time to sleep, you want to listen to this interview! In our time together Dr. Romie explains the neuroscience behind toxic environments, the stress/success cycle and the creation of a busy brain. She shared her Brain SHIFT protocol to get to the root of your anxiety, sleeplessness and food issues and explains that if you do it right – you will see an increase in intimacy and sex with your partner. 

She is currently working on her first book, “The Busy Brain Cure.” When Dr. Romie hits the pause button in her life, she meditates, spends time traveling, & believes dark chocolate is her medicine. I love Dr. Romie’s admonishment that our minds are strong medicine. Take her advice and get started with that digital detox, brain dump writing and 5 minutes of meditation. More sex. Less anxiety. Talk about gold.

Gold with Jeanette Schneider Episode 31: Breathe, Sister: Breath Work and Mindfulness with Ava Johanna

Ava Johanna believes wellness tools should be available to everyone. Originally a “selfish journey” she realized that access to mindfulness, whole and healthy foods, yoga and meditation were privileges that she’d like to make more accessible through her platform and advocacy. We talk about consumer activism and how information and access is everything.

Ava is a celebrity meditation and movement instructor, host of The Alchemized Life Podcast, and content creator based out of Los Angeles, California. Whether on the podcast or on the mat, Ava works with individuals to activate their soul’s purpose, create powerful daily routines, and elevate every area of their life simply by adjusting their mindset through movement and fully embodying the energy of empowerment and confidence. She has been featured on major wellness publications such as MindBodyGreen, Wanderlust’s 35 Under 35, Life&Style Magazine, and Yoga Journal.

We dig into identity, mental models and helpful practices that you can incorporate in your own life. Ava shares tips for beginner equal ratio breath work and engaging your parasympathetic nervous system.

I love Ava’s encouragement to create mindfully and intentionally and to approach every relationship with grace, compassion and empathy.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 30: Crisis of Faith: Where Resonance Meets Spirituality with Rabbi Jacob Rupp

Rabbi Jacob Rupp is the most woke Orthodox Rabbi I’ve ever met and this conversation is next level amazing. We talk about the fundamental need to ask yourself what it is you want in life, to understand what excites you, and why you should follow your own heart, not the guidelines man provides. He also reminds us that many times religious concept has been lost behind the human and to go back to the fundamentals, not the one who has framed it for you.

We walk through the unwinding of belief systems, turning them from parent-formed to a personal relationship with your Higher Power, be that God, Universe, Allah, etc. Rabbi Rupp reminds us that God desires a broken heart and is bigger than petty human emotions. Then he quotes Tupac.

Rabbi Jacob Rupp grew up in a spiritually ambiguous home with a loving, but highly dysfunctional dynamic, and a desire to help others. He realized he wanted to become a spiritual teacher before he truly understood Judaism.

Rabbi Jacob Rupp is a rabbi, coach, syndicated columnist, podcast host of Lift Your Legacy, speaker, and business strategist. He helps clients achieve clarity on goals and strategies, become honest and forgiving with themselves and others, and live more spiritually connected lives. He does one-on-one performance and marriage counseling, group coaching, and is a keynote speaker. Rupp draws from the gamut of cutting edge business, relationship, and leadership strategy and roots them in ancient Jewish tradition.

Rabbi Rupp has been happily married for over a decade, has four children, lost over 100 lbs., and built his own business, Lift Your Legacy. He helps those who are driven and spiritually seeking to obtain access to the tools they need to live purpose-driven lives. He also started and grew a social media marketing platform, focusing on helping workers who wish to identify and create alternative income streams and communicate their messages out to a wider audience through the medium of podcasting.

Rabbi Rupp holds two BA’s, one from the University of California, San Diego and the other from Ohr LaGolah Hertz Institute for International Teacher Training, and was ordained by the former head rabbinic judge in Jerusalem. He is an avid reader and is continually engaged in the study of Torah, leadership, psychology and related fields.

I LOVE this conversation and reminder that sometimes the way we understand the world around us, faith and path, is through a very narrow lens. Get clear on what you want in life and be open to what comes next.

Amina AlTai is a holistic business and mindset coach and corporate trainer. She is the first social entrepreneur to successfully create a methodology that supports the health of a business and its people at the same time.

Gold With Jeanette Schneider Episode 22: Yoga + Meditation > Anxiety with Rosie Acosta

Rosie Acosta is a Yoga & Meditation Teacher and a Teacher Trainer. She is an expert at helping her students cultivate a life of mindfulness, presence, and intention. An East Los Angeles Native, troubled teen who suffered from depression, anxiety, and overeating and turned her life around with Yoga + Meditation. 

Rosie, a Certified Nutritionist + Life Coach and Founder of Radically Loved Yoga Health and Wellness, she has used her expertise to work with NFL Champions, NBA All-Stars, Olympic Athletes, as well as students in her community and as a volunteer with At Risk Youth and Afghanistan Veterans. 

In all her work, Rosie teaches and practices RADICAL LOVE and uses this as a guiding force to overcome adversity. Through yoga, healthy lifestyle choices, mantra, and self-inquiry she aspires to help others find their unique gifts and fire within, she creates practices for her students and connects with people in a way that helps her students live radically loved lives. Her articles can be found in Mantra magazine, MindBodyGreen, FOX News Latino, Pop Sugar Fitness, Well+Good, and Evolve Fit Wear. She can be found teaching yoga and coaching workshops around the country as well as leading international teacher trainings. Rosie is also a proud ambassador for Yoga Journal, City Silence, Manduka, and Living Yoga. 

So many people ask me about my yoga and meditation practice and I think this episode will shed some light into the beauty of both and how to approach what may seem scary if you haven’t gotten the spirit just yet!
I love Rosie’s passion for her practice and her desire to lead the way for others because of her own personal experience. Yoga and meditation has changed lives and I hope you take some great tips or even the whisperings to begin your own practice if you haven’t already. If you have, take the pressure off your shoulders when you don’t feel like it is going well, and feel the blessings in the in-between. It is outside of meditation that you find its benefits.

You can find Rosie on IG @rosieacosta and at her website www.radicallyloved.com

Rosie and I talk about doing deep work to uncover your messaging which is the cardinal point of my new book LORE: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future. Get into the work with me. LORE is available now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.com.
