    We talked about a lot of very complex but important and topical issues, including: 


    - Why we might be holding ourselves back from success because of an unconscious fear of retaliation 
    - How parents who are 'too good' prevent us from growing up
    - What actually makes a good childhood?
    - Why do we need therapy at all, and can we heal our attachment wounds through other relationships?
    - Can we be 'emotionally anorexic/bulimic'? Why do some people reject love?
    - The difference between projection and projective identification (finally someone explains this!)

    Deep Knowing: Trusting in Something Bigger - Kim Hermanson and Imi Lo

    Today I have the honour to speak with Kim Hermanson. We talked about how to place our trust in something invisible and bigger than ourselves, and tap into divine wisdom. I hope it helps you during such uncertain times we are living in!

    Kim Hermanson, Ph.D. is a pioneering educator and shaman. During a series of 3 shamanic initiations, she was spiritually gifted with the ability to quickly shift a person out of his or her thinking mind into an intelligent field of profound beauty that lies beyond thought. Her seminars attract visionaries, pioneers, and trailblazers who are 'pushing the wall' with her to bring forth a new world. She is on the faculty at Pacifica Graduate Institute and has taught at several other graduate schools of psychology, including UC Berkeley, and the Esalen Institute. Kim worked as a computer scientist in the field of artificial intelligence before a series of mystical experiences instructed her to show others how to access the realm of intelligence beyond our thinking mind. Her PhD in Education is from the University of Chicago.

    Giftedness, Existential Depression and Advice for the Gifted - Lisa Van Gamert, the Gifted Guru.

    Giftedness, Existential Depression and Advice for the Gifted - Lisa Van Gamert, the Gifted Guru.

    Transcript: https://eggshelltherapy.com/podcast-blog/2022/04/12/giftedguru/


    Today we talk to a real expert on the subject of giftedness, Lisa Van Gamert
    In this conversation we talked about:
    Lisa's definition of giftedness.
    What existential depression actually is.
    Lisa's nuanced definition of perfectionism and why there can be a healthy, functioning form of perfectionism.
    The existential problem of loneliness when you can not find your people and do not feel like you have anyone to lean on. 
    Career advice for the gifted and why autonomy is key. 
    In the last part of the conversation, Lisa gave us some really good, concrete advice that you can work on if you are struggling with the label, your identity, or your self-esteem. 
    I really appreciate Lisa sharing her expertise with us. She is a true expert in this field and it shows! This conversation helped me refine my thinking and learn. 
    Whether you identify with the label "gifted" or not, I think you could learn something from this.
     
    About Lisa: Lisa grew up in California where she was a real, live gifted student. She’s been a teacher, a school administrator, a homeschooling mom, a paralegal, an Army Intelligence Analyst, and a cheerleader. Not in that order. She’s married to a software developer and has become very used to having her own IT department on call at all times. She lives in Texas, where she plays with Brody, her golden retriever, when she’s not writing about gifted ed at giftedguru.com or creating online courses for teachers at giftedguild.com. Even though she literally wrote the book on perfectionism, she loves the flawed beauty of education and is excited to share with us today.
