Looking Beyond Biases with Jasmine Byrd – Mamaste023



This week on the Mamaste Podcast we welcome Jasmine Byrd, Project Coordinator for NASA, and badass working-mama to four-year-old, Trey.

We dive into Jasmine’s background, including her faith-centered foundation that has led her through every stage in her life and helped her create a family life rich in values while expecting the very best from people.

She shares her experience transitioning from a predominantly white school to a historical black university, Hampton University. We also talk about the racial tension that’s still unmistakably present today and how she is raising her son to see everyone the same, regardless of the color of their skin.

Quotable Moments

“What am I gonna do here that will make me happy?”

“The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that people are better than you think.”

“I’d rather be an optimist and proven wrong than live as a pessimist.”

“Prayer is a way of letting things go, like a release.”

Coffee Break: How to become immune to judgment – MAMASTE21



Welcome to The Mamaste Podcasts’s inaugural “coffee break” episode.  A short 20 minutes or so version of just Ryann and Jill talking about one topic in-depth. This week are topic is judgment. We tackle how to express our opinions but still be open to others, how to become resilient to judgment and how letting go (insert Frozen song here) of judgment is part of self care and self love.

We start the podcast with an excerpt from Rumi’s poem “A Great Wagon,”

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.”

Discovering Self-Care and Purpose – MAMASTE20



Today on The Mamaste Podcast we welcome professional certified life coach and mama of three teenage boys, Krista Resnick. Krista helps women step into their power and coaches us to find that with some simple shifts we can step into our purpose. She walks us through the complexities of having kids while trying to find purpose in something—a job, a business, a hobby—outside of the home too, and suggests some simple changes to become a more mindful parent.
Quotable Moments: 
“Purpose is the work you’ve been designed to do. It’s who you are and what you’re designed to be. It’s literally in your DNA. You don’t have to hustle for it. You don’t have to work for it. It’s not a destination, it’s not a goal.”

“You don’t have to do it all, You don’t have to come last. It’s not this noble feat to put yourself last.”

“We need to take energy inventory to find out what fills us up and what’s draining us.”

“Our feelings are guides, they’re our information.”

“Set four alarms a day on your phone to check in. How are you feeling in that moment?”
