In this week’s episode I sit down with my long-time friend, writer, editor and podcast host, Elise Loehnen. We discuss her fascinating wellness journey and the different healing modalities that have made the biggest difference in her life. We also have fun taking a behind-the-scenes look at Elise’s new podcast Pulling the Thread.

Elise Loehnen Fissmer is a writer and editor living in Los Angeles with her husband, Rob, and their sons, Max and Sam. While she’s co-written 11 books, including five New York Times Best Sellers, she’s currently writing the first book under her own name for Dial Press, an imprint of Penguin Random House. Previously, she was the chief content officer of goop, the lifestyle and e-commerce company established by Gwyneth Paltrow in 2008. While at goop, Elise co-hosted The goop Podcast and The goop Lab on Netflix, and led the brand’s content strategy and programming, including the launch of a magazine with Condé Nast and a book imprint. For the podcast, she interviewed 100s of thought leaders, doctors, and experts, including Ibram X Kendi, Bryan Stevenson, Nicholas Kristof, Ambassador Samantha Power, Rebecca Traister, John & Julie Gottman, among others.

Prior to goop, she was the editorial projects director of Conde Nast Traveler. Before Traveler, she was the editor at large and ultimately deputy editor of Lucky Magazine, where she also served as the on-air spokesperson, appearing regularly on shows like Today, E!, Good Morning America, and The Early Show.  She has a B.A. from Yale and majored in English and Fine Arts; she also went to St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire. Before that, she attended a school where lunchtimes were spent jumping an irrigation ditch. Originally from Missoula, Montana, it's important to her that people know that she went to the National Mathletes Championship when she was in 8th grade and that she’s a horse whisperer. These days, she spends her time writing, reading, consulting, and fundraising for causes and politicians focused on environmental action, social justice, women and children’s health, and a more equitable world.

A few of my favorite things we cover this episode:

  • A behind-the-scenes look into Elise’s podcast, Pulling the Thread
  • How we can come together to heal physically and mentally and help to form a more wellness-minded world
  • A look into the fascinating field of mediums and psychics and how our consciousness is an important part of our physical and mental wellbeing
