#111 – Inner Peace & Connection to Self with Neloo Naderi & Ellie Shoja

Neloo & Ellie

This week on the Curiosity & Consciousness podcast, for the 111th episode (!!), I couldn’t think of a better conversation to have landed. I’m joined by Neloo Naderi & Ellie Shoja, Founders of Peace Unleashed.

At Peace Unleashed, their dream is to usher in a world in which every human lives from a place of joy, peace and groundedness, and all actions are aligned with inspiration. To achieve this dream, Neloo & Ellie create beautiful, high-vibrational products, courses, and content that help you remove the barriers you’ve built that keep you separated from your source of power, so you can, at last, become the powerful creator you have come into this life to be.

Here’s a little more on the two:

Neloo Naderi is a community builder, TEDx speaker, mental health advocate, CEO of Peace Unleashed, host of NelooTV, and co-host of the Unleash Your Peace podcast.

To escape religious persecution, Neloo and her family fled from Iran when she was just 5 years old. A family history of mental illness, poverty, violence, a broken home, and her own battle with depression and suicidal ideation set Neloo on a 15-year journey, seeking refuge in spirituality, philosophy, and various healing modalities. She co-founded Peace Unleashed with author Ellie Shoja to share practical tools, timeless wisdom, and strategies that helped Neloo transform her own life and become a beacon of light.

Neloo has been featured on various publications and podcasts including Authority Magazine and Thrive Global. She is an inspirational speaker and trainer, working with local schools, national and global corporations. As the host of NelooTV, she interviews thought leaders, scientists, authors, humanitarians, A-list celebrities, influencers, and online personalities to awaken viewers to their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them.

“Modern-day Rumi” Ellie Shoja is a serial entrepreneur, author of The 13th Planet and Your Heart Knows The Way, co-founder of Peace Unleashed, TEDx speaker, and the co-host of the Unleash Your Peace podcast.

The daughter of an international con man, who moved 25 times from the age of 9 to 11, and lived in refugee camps in Germany, Ellie suffered from severe nervous tics, anger and mood disorders, and suicidal ideation by the age of 12. What began as a personal healing journey turned into an 18-year deep dive into various modalities of psychology, philosophy, and spirituality. Ellie co-founded Peace Unleashed with CEO Neloo Naderi in order to share the inner peace strategies, tools, and processes that helped her become one of the most grounded and peaceful people living today.

Ellie has been featured in various podcasts and publications including Entrepreneur, Elite Daily, Authority Magazine, and Thrive Global. Among her clients are A-list celebrities, influencers, and online personalities. She is a keynote speaker and has spoken at national and international conferences including Borderless Content Congress, The Great American Pitch Fest, and Digital Hollywood.


I love the fact that this episode landed number 111 (that wasn’t planned!). I think it just adds to the significance of the conversation.

In this episode, Neloo & Ellie share what sparked them to start, Peace Unleashed’. No longer content with sitting back & watching events that were unfolding, they were inspired to take action. Knowing that ‘fighting’ was not the solution; they knew that helping people tap into their innate inner peace was the only way to rise.

They spoke about fear, how it keeps us separate from the ‘other’, but also from our true self, and how healing this separation is vital, now more than ever. When we are experiencing inner peace, we are connecting to that part of us that is ‘non-physical’.

The conversation expanded as well into how little we know of our true selves, but also our human self. We often only see and assess a person based off their net worth, skills and exterior worldly goods, as opposed to seeing them for the miracle that they truly are!

There is so much in this conversation, and I believe this reconnection to our true self is the work that we’re all being called to do during these shifting times, for the sake of ourselves, and humanity as a whole.
