    Gravity Replay: Bob Roth, Transcendental Meditation

    Gravity Replay: Bob Roth, Transcendental Meditation

    Bob Roth is one of the most experienced and sought after meditation teachers in the US. For nearly 50 years, Bob has taught transcendental meditation to many, many thousands of people. He’s the author of the New York Times bestseller https://stillnessbook.com/ (“Strength in Stillness: The Power of Transcendental Meditation”) and the CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, a global non-profit which has taught meditation to more than one million at risk adults and youth in 35 countries.
    When he saw Robert Kennedy speak at the Civic Auditorium he saw a path to creating a better world — and four days later, Kennedy was assassinated. Bob went to college from that point with a desire to become a Senator and change the world. He originally believed the way to change the world would be through legislation, but it wasn’t until he was exposed to the idea of transcendental meditation that he saw a true path to healing and change.
    What Brett asks:
    [01:31] Can you tell us about your early childhood and journey?
    [04:26] Can you elaborate on what it was like to grow up in the Bay Area?
    [09:15] What was it like being at Berkeley in the 60’s?
    [14:15] Can you talk about how meditation came into your life?
    [24:21] How do you make sense of how these things show up in our life?

    Gravity Replay: Josh Trent, Wellness Force Radio

    Josh Trent, founder of https://wellnessforce.com/ (Wellness Force) Media and host of https://wellnessforce.com/podcast (Wellness Force Radio), has gone through a lot in his life — like every one of us — but he’s also done the work to acknowledge his trauma and make it work for him, which is a step that we can all benefit from but not a lot of us are willing to or know how to take.
    Luckily, Josh has a knack for breaking this stuff down and making the choice to change feel accessible. It isn’t easy. It will require you to live more intentionally and consciously every day, for the rest of your life. But the rewards are incomparable.
    What Brett asks:
    [2:30] What’s your origin story?
    [6:25] What did you learn from past-life regression and how did you go about doing it?
    [16:00] How did your father’s generational trauma show up in your childhood? Your mother’s?
    [24:00] How did your generational trauma start manifesting as a teenager?
    [29:40] What pulled you into observer mode so that you could see the unconscious way you were living?
    [37:25] How did you move into the work you’re doing now?
    [45:00] What is Rythmia and how did it affect you?
    [52:20] How are you using all of the experiences that led up to now, good and bad?
    [1:02:40] Tell us about BTFA (Belief, Thought, Feeling, Action).

    Gravity Replay: Katy Smith, The Columbus Dispatch

    Gravity Replay: Katy Smith, The Columbus Dispatch

    Content warning: this episode features graphic descriptions of violence and domestic abuse.
    Katy Smith is Business Editor at The Columbus Dispatch and Editor of Columbus CEO magazine. She has been a journalist for more than 20 years, most of those covering business in Columbus. She grew up in Bexley and now lives in Clintonville in a duplex with her husband Nick, her rescue cat Dexter, and her brother Joe, who she cares for.
    So, Katy has been sharing other people’s stories for about 20 years now — and, today, she is generous enough to share her own story publicly for the first time
    What Brett asks:
    [10:12] Can you talk a little bit more about what happened for you and how you managed to navigate domestic violence?
    [14:30] Let’s back up and talk about your early childhood.
    [21:30] It must have been very difficult, whether you knew it at the time, going through that family dynamic as a young girl.
    [26:20] Tell me a little bit more about your brother and how that experience shaped your life.
    [34:23] I think what you've shared so far is really important for others to hear, and maybe important for you to acknowledge and create real space for.
    [38:33] This kind of sharing is very cathartic, not just for you but for the people who hear it.

    [25:45] Where did Jim’s inherent sense of principle, his deep-rooted core strength, come from?
    [31:00] What was the trajectory of Donatos Pizza? How did it come into McDonald’s radar?
    [38:00] How does a family impact the way you run a business?

Awesome podcast

Great show and interviews. Refreshing. Keep up the awesome work.

Doing Good Now

I feel like I was eavesdropping on this conversation with two dear friends over coffee. Insightful, authentic, and heartfelt. Another reminder that life is a winding road that can be joyous, playful, loving, uncomfortable, sad and all the things that we must embrace it ALL to be fully alive.

rwalsh1977 ,

Authentic courageous storytelling

Gravity has become my go-to podcast when I need inspiration. I love the authenticity of the guests—their willingness to go deep and tell all. Brett’s ability to ask insightful questions, and listen with empathy is unlike no other. Each episode provides an opportunity to learn live a better life.
