Episode 6: Non-weird Meditation for Busy People

This episode was originally recorded for Dr. Dovidio’s other podcast, Josieology.

Jen Johannsen, a certified meditation teacher and licensed school psychologist, talks about how to reduce stress through non-weird meditation and mindfulness. She developed the Meditation Matchmaker Framework which enables her to pair people to the best meditation approach based on their preferences. Her secular approach takes the “woo-woo” out of meditation and makes it simple so that anyone can practice mindfulness.

Episode 3: Permission to Pivot

Pathologist Dr. Nadine Kelly talks about her journey to becoming a doctor only to discover, after several years in practice, that despite all the years of training, a career in medicine did not suit her and the stress was significantly affecting her mental health.

She made the courageous decision to leave medicine and pursue something that breathed new life into her – yoga. She now uses her medical background to enhance her yoga practice as well as those of the students who seek her out because of her unique style.

In this episode, we also discuss the benefits of yoga, especially for those of us with aging bodies.
