    Whole Brain Living with Dr Jill Bolte Taylor

    Whole Brain Living with Dr Jill Bolte Taylor

    This week Cass Dunn chats with Harvard-trained and published neuroscientist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Dr Taylor is most famous for her fascinating TED talk My stroke of insight, where she talked about her experience of having a stroke that caused her the left hemisphere of her brain to 'go offline'.

    In this chat Dr Taylor unpacks her new book Whole Brain Living, where she argues that we don’t just a left and right hemisphere, we actually have four brain quadrants - left thinking, left feeling and right thinking, right feeling.

    She explains how getting to know these four ‘characters’ that live inside our brains can bring about life changing improvements to our sense of wellbeing and our ability to live life in a calm, present and playful state.

    Healing from addiction with Alice Williams

    Healing from addiction with Alice Williams

    This week Cass talks to freelance writer, yoga teacher and author, Alice Williams who wrote her book, “Bad Yogi” to be a healing memoir for people who hate healing memoirs. After experiencing a quarter life crisis, Alice embarked on a 2-year yoga teacher training program, immersing herself in the wellness industry while simultaneously entering a 12-step recovery program for an eating disorder. Alice shares how those two paths complemented each other and where they differed; Cass and Alice discuss what all addictions have in common and Alice shares from her own experience what helped her to finally be free of her own addiction.

    CW: This episode includes discussion of disordered eating behaviour. If you’re experiencing an eating disorder or disordered eating, body image or related issues, confidential support is available by calling the National Butterfly Hotline on 1800 ED HOPE (1800 33 4673).

    In addition to “Bad Yogi”, Alice also wrote, “Would it kill you to say please?” and she’s currently working on more writing projects so be sure to follow her on social media.

    Self-Compassion with Dr Kristin Neff: Part One

    In this episode, Cass talks to Dr Kristin Neff, who is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion. Dr Neff shares how her discovery of Buddhist philosophy including mindfulness and compassion helped her get through a difficult time in her life and how that led her to studying and measuring self-compassion as part of her research as a psychologist.

Inspiring interviews with top notch guests

I stumbled across this podcast and I am so glad I did. It is made up of seasons but each block of podcasts is jam packed with inspiring interviews with amazing people. The host asks the exact questions I am pondering and I always come away feeling motivated. Love it!

Inspirational & Insightful

I love listening to you guys on my morning walk. Always interesting, entertaining and I always take away new ideas and wisdom from every podcast. I’m now “ dreaming” after listening to the fabulous episode with KikiK founder Kristina Karlsson! I love that you messaged her on social media to see if she’d do a podcast with you! Social media has its downside but it’s an amazing tool when used correctly. Thank you!
