    INTERVIEW: Healing From Trauma with Alba Soto 

    INTERVIEW: Healing From Trauma with Alba Soto 

    Alba is an extraordinary woman. She has survived childhood sexual abuse, rape, and domestic violence, and now supports other women who have experienced trauma or abuse. She is courageous and open and willing to talk about subjects and experiences that are often kept hidden. Hearing her share about her journey from trauma to healing is incredibly inspiring. 
     
    In this episode, Alba and I discuss:
    Surviving molestation and rape. Facing traumatic triggers, memories, shame, guilt, and flashbacks. The over-sexualization and exploitation of children. Recognizing red flags or warnings.  
    Key Takeaways:
    You don’t have to keep running away from your trauma triggers. When you find someone worthy, surrender, and start living again. Realizing you can take time, regroup, and keep going, you aren’t stuck in one place. Accepting and moving into positive and reciprocal relationships when you are ready for them. Realization of the struggle you are living through and that you have the power to change it.

    Key Takeaways:
    When thinking about edged weapons, don’t just think knives, box cutters, or traditional edged weapons, think outside of the box. Adapt your language to de-escalate the situation rather than put the situation/person into crisis mode again. Meet the person at the situation and mental state they are in, not where you feel they should be. Most defense situations while carrying a firearm happen within 6 feet. Utilize the training for that situation.

    INTERVIEW: Safety and Self-Defense in the Urban Environment with Beverly Baker 

    INTERVIEW: Safety and Self-Defense in the Urban Environment with Beverly Baker 

    Beverly Baker is an amazing badass woman who is a martial artist and self-defense coach. She is the founder of the Metropolitan Finishing School, which is not the place to go if you are looking to learn how to serve tea correctly, it is where you want to go if you want to learn how to keep yourself safe in urban environments. 
     
    In this episode, Beverly Baker and I discuss:
    Distance management: where distance is your best friend.Avoidance, situational proximity, what’s normal for the context of your situation. Circling around behind someone while pretending like you are looking at something else. Tactics for keeping an eye people. Pieing the corner: don’t hug corners, have an open field of vision. Street dodging: utilize the reflections on the windows around you, how are the people around you reacting, turn, and look nonchalantly. Play spot the bad guy, take in your environment and someone who may be standing out When visiting a new city know what you want to do, where you want to go, and what the top crimes for the area are.  Be aware of how people are intersecting with you. They can use charm, discount boundaries, teaming “we”, and/or loan sharking.   
    Key Takeaways:
    Preparing for and dealing with the situations that you will encounter. It’s all about what makes sense at the moment you are in and what scenario you are in.  Prepare ahead by knowing what bags you will be carrying and practice how you will carry and store them in the different locations you will be visiting. When visiting a new city decide what do I want to do, where do I want to go, and what are the top crimes for the area.  Feel free to lie and deflect questions back toward the unknown person who is asking about you.   
    "The largest threats that women face are from people they know."

    INTERVIEW: A Badass Out of History with Mila Johanson  

    INTERVIEW: A Badass Out of History with Mila Johanson  

    Mila Johansson is a professional director, playwright, and writer. She's the author of 22 plays and musicals that circle the globe, along with two teaching manuals, 101 Theater games, and 50 scenes to go. Mila also teaches social media screenwriting, creative writing, herbology, and Public Speaking at a local Adult Education School. She has just published a book about her famous suffragette grandmother, Jesse Haver Butler, just in time for the hundredth anniversary of women getting the right to vote which is in August of 2020. The book is called From Cowgirl to Congress. Mila lives on her organic citrus ranch in Northern California with her husband, four dogs and a cat. She says that every woman in the United States today owes their voting rights to her grandmother Jessie, and to the others who fought so bravely for women's suffrage.



    In this episode, Mila and I discuss:
    Women’s suffrage and the life of women before they had won the right to vote. The fights and lobbying to Washington during the suffrage movement. The variety of issues that Jesse tackled to address the unfair treatment of people.  Jessie, her friends, and her husband’s stories during the fight for equal rights.  
     
    Key Takeaways:
    Mila’s favorite self-care practice is eating organically, eating fresh food, utilizing her skills as a certified herbalist, and walking. Mila’s advice to women in their 20’s is to pay attention more and study history more.  Mila’s best advice for women to develop their own personal power and courage is to recognize that you've always had the power. You have it, assume it today. There's nothing to stop you except yourself.   
    "Don't wait for the right moment." —  Mila Johanson
