"Being an anxiety warrior is about finding a loving relationship with my anxiety." -Jesse Israel
On today's episode, Abby and Margot are thrilled and honored to welcome Jesse Israel to the podcast. Jesse is a social entrepreneur, meditation leader and former record label executive known for founding the mass meditation movement The Big Quiet. In 2020 Jesse was invited to go on tour with Oprah Winfrey and WW to speak at and lead mass meditations at sold-out arenas throughout the US. He's been featured in Forbes, The New York Times, and the WSJ along with several other leading publications.
As a kid, Jesse only noticed performance anxiety during sports with adults watching him. He shares how in many ways he felt as if he'd peaked in his middle school years because it was a time of his life when he felt free. Free to create and be a leader without fear and self doubt. Then, after being part of a prank gone wrong... everything changed. His anxiety grew, and as he grew new challenges proved more difficult because of it. In his early 20's after achieving wild success in the music business he began to have panic attacks which led him to realize that it was time to make massive shifts in his life. With therapy, meditation, and a supportive community he was able to help himself so that in turn he could help others to create massive shifts in their life. He offers the Warriors many useful tips for learning to form a loving and embracing relationship to anxiety, and see it as a teacher rather than an enemy. As always, the Warriors have a blast getting to know Jesse in lightning round and he shares a fantastic win of the week!
