    Starting over after Scientology

    Starting over after Scientology

    At a ranch for the kids of Scientology’s most powerful members, you don’t get to see your parents for more than a few hours a week. In the military-style dormitories, children spend their days pulling weeds, hauling rocks, and evenings in Scientology studies. As the niece of Scientology’s most powerful leader, David Miscavige, Jenna didn’t know things like birthday parties or family vacations. She knew fear, work, and longing. But when you view people from the outside world as scary, how do you leave the only life you’ve ever known? And what do you find on the other side?

    A Little Wiser: The stories we tell ourselves

    A Little Wiser: The stories we tell ourselves

    Kimi and Christy discuss the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and the impact this has on our lives. 
    Christy shares the healing practice of expressive writing — putting pen to paper (or recording on your phone) to make sense of your darker thoughts and feelings. 
    This 20-minute exercise helps you put difficult life experiences into perspective and leads to a long list of benefits, including less stress, better sleep, enhanced mood and stronger immune symptoms.

    This episode was inspired by inmate turned entrepreneur Dave Dahl (of Dave’s Killer Bread) and his ability to write his story of redemption - both “in his head” and on the back of a loaf of bread. You can listen to his life story here.

    This episode is brought to you by All The Happier, an online course rooted in science and human story - to empower you with real tools to find connection, meaning and joy.

    The redemption of Dave Dahl

    The redemption of Dave Dahl

    You know him best as simply Dave, the baker and brand-visionary behind Dave’s Killer Bread. But Dave Dahl has had many identities in his life: inmate, art dealer, philanthropist, addict, entrepreneur, and criminal. He grew up in a strict Seventh-Day Adventist community, itching to break free, and later found drugs, crime and years of prison time; until one day Dave decided he’d had enough and asked for help. He grabbed hold of every opportunity he could to improve himself through learning, trying, failing and getting back up again, even in the worst of times. Get to know the real Dave in this inspiring conversation that may just kickstart a whole new attitude of passion and possibility. 
    In this episode, we talk about:
    Dave’s experience growing up in a Seventh Day Adventist family.His struggle with drugs, addiction, and incarceration.Asking for help with his mental health while his prison saved his life.How Dave’s Killer Bread was born.
