    The Key to Living with Loss? It’s All About Balance with Mary Hoang

    The Key to Living with Loss? It’s All About Balance with Mary Hoang

    Today’s fascinating conversation on finding balance in grief is with Mary Hoang, Founder and Head Psychologist at The Indigo Project, an online psychology practice that thinks creatively about mental health. 
    She is also the author of Darkness is Golden, a book that explores the painful parts of our lives that we tend to gloss over, like grief and trauma.
    Mary shares so many profound nuggets of wisdom throughout this conversation. A key message from this episode is how important it is to take a break from grief and not let your loss define you. She shares why it’s key to find balance, which isn’t always easy, but something we need to do when processing loss.
    Mary shares her perspective on how to cope with numbing distractions that might be holding up our healing. We discuss the two-factor model of grief that many of us can identify with, which is either distracting ourselves from grief or leaning into grief too much. We also explore why a loss might bring up other unmet grief and the psychology around why we don’t easily allow ourselves to feel joy when we are grieving. 
    We had a big “A-HA” moment around this, so make sure you tune in all the way through, there are some wonderful insights in this conversation.

    Trauma, Healing and The Gift of Forgiveness with Auschwitz Survivor Dr Edith Eger

    Trauma, Healing and The Gift of Forgiveness with Auschwitz Survivor Dr Edith Eger

    Today’s conversation is a powerful one. Dr. Edith Eger is a Holocaust survivor, psychologist and expert in the treatment of post-traumatic stress. At 94 years old, she has some incredible words of wisdom, courage and comfort to share.
    No stranger to grief and trauma, Edith and her family were sent to Auschwitz in 1944 when she was only 16 years old. She has gone on to share her incredible story of trauma, resilience, hope and survival in two bestselling books: The Choice and The Gift. Her work provides powerful lessons on healing and the power of choice and hope – things that many of us need after experiencing loss.
    In this thought-provoking conversation, Dr. Eger shares her wisdom on how we can help ourselves heal from traumatic experiences in life and why the key is in our pocket. We discuss the gift of forgiveness, the importance of not being a victim in life and how you can find hope in hopelessness, plus much more.
    We hope you take as much from this conversation as we did.

Feelin’ Griefy

This is the best grief podcast. It is like chatting with friends, and I love the humour that Sal and Im bring to it. It’s sad, it’s funny, it’s relatable, it captures the everyday adventure that grief is!

Managing guilt

Thank you for helping me to normalise my grief guilt to be able to look more objectively on my thoughts and move on from them rather than wallowing.

An incredible space to exhale and feel seen and heard

This podcast is a gift for those who have experienced grief and for those walking with someone who has. Listening to this podcast is like cocooning yourself in a safe loving bubble where you feel seen/heard/felt for your experience. There’s a love and reassurance that is felt when listening which is a gift when you’re grieving. Thank you Sal and Im for sharing your hearts and holding this space for these conversations.
