The Power of the Unconscious Mind

In partnership with our friends at The Outnet. We tend to obsess over how much and how well we focus, but psychiatrist Srini Pillay makes the case that the time we spend unfocused is more important. Pillay is a brain researcher, an assistant professor at Harvard, and the author of Tinker, Dabble, Doodle, Try: Unlock the Power of the Unfocused Mind. He helps people understand how to manage risk, harness creativity, and access the unconscious. He talks to us about brain function (the majority is outside of conscious awareness), strategic ways to unfocus (most of us daydream ineffectively), and the key to possibility thinking (which allows for self-esteem optimization). Pillay thinks that we should all become scientists in our relationships and lives: Intuition, he says, is a hypothesis that needs to explored rather than rejected.

Dr. Dominique Fradin-Read focuses on preventive and anti-aging medicine, helping women through the hormonal changes and symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. (She also works with men on hormonal issues.) In her practice, the aging process feels nearly imperceptible. She takes us through her approach, outlines what we can expect from hormonal shifts, and suggests different options for smoothing out the ride. And there's a lot you can do, says Fradin-Read: "We should not be the victims of our hormones anymore." (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

In partnership with our friends at Prime Video and their new series HomecomingPsychologist Alex Belser is a clinical research fellow at Yale and an adjunct instructor in the Department of Applied Psychology at NYU. While he has a practice, on the research side, he's been involved in some fascinating studies looking at the potential intersection of psychotherapy and psychedelics. He talks with Elise Loehnen about the many different ways psychedelics are being used to treat depression, anxiety, addiction. They explore how the mind works, why the brain can change, and what might transform the way we see the world. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Ballet star and history-maker Misty Copeland sits down with GP to talk about what it's like being the first?something Copeland is intimately familiar with. She is the first African American woman to ever be promoted to principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre. (She's also the New York Times-bestselling author of books including Life in Motion, Ballerina Body, and her new guided journal for kids, Your Life in Motion.) She shares some of her incredible life story with GP, along with the tools she's leaned on to heal from the past and find her place moving forward. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Our first guest in a three-part Tuesday series on mental health is psychiatrist Kelly Brogan. She's the New York Times-bestselling author of A Mind of Your Own. She's most known for her holistic?and sometimes controversial?approach to identifying the root causes of disease and depression. She believes that healing the body can be a path to healing the mind. And she helps us get comfortable with uncertainty, paradoxes, and complexity. Sitting in the grey area when the truth is still emerging might turn out to be the most rewarding part of being human. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Chip Heath has figured out how to create moments that matter. Heath is a professor at Stanford's Graduate School of Business, and he's co-written four books with his brother; their latest is The Power of Moments. This is what he tells us about today: why we remember certain things and not others, what makes a good memory, why it's important to celebrate, and how to make vacations, work experiences, and time with our family more impactful. Routines are great, Heath says, but it's often the unexpected, script-breaking moments that we carry with us for the rest of our lives. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Although Mary Beard is a famous historian, she's often in the middle of the global conversation on gender roles and women and power. Beard is a professor of classics at the University of Cambridge and the author of several books, including Women and Power and How Do We Look. She explores how women have been silenced throughout history?and why we still are today. Her work?and perhaps even more so, her personal life?suggests ways we might all speak up and change the culture of power. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

A. J. Jacobs is a journalist and the author of several New York Times bestsellers, in which he does stunts like choosing to follow the bible literally for a year or reading the entire encyclopedia. His new book, Thanks a Thousand, is a survey on gratitude, as A. J. goes on a trip to thank every person involved in producing his morning cup of coffee. In this fun conversation, A. J. and our chief content officer, Elise Loehnen, talk about how gratitude doesn't have to be cheesy and why it might be the simplest route to happiness. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Model-designer-author Ashley Graham dropped by goop HQ to hang with GP. It was the first time since our inaugural Oprah episode that GP cried on the podcast. But mostly they laughed their way through the conversation. They talked about the experience of being put in a corner or a box, and what it's like breaking out of an industry's confines. Ashley talked about being a body activist, dealing with insecurities, and making space for all kinds of beauty?on magazine covers and out in the world. They also shared relationship challenges, big loves, spirituality practices, and Ashley's wild, beautiful marriage story. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)

Gabrielle Reece is a world-class athlete, model, and the New York Times-bestselling author of My Foot Is Too Big for the Glass Slipper. A former professional beach volleyball player, Reece was Nike's first female spokesperson. She's known, in part, for her thoughtful perspective on strength, beauty, and redefining our relationship to our body. In this special episode, we're sharing a conversation with Reece from In goop Health Vancouver. We talked about navigating self-judgment, doing away with comparisons, why perfectly beautiful isn't the path to happiness, and ways to get stronger with age. For starters, we'll never look at a scale the same way again. (For more, see The goop Podcast hub.)
