    GAIN Keys to Nonjudgement with Greg Hammer, MD

    GAIN Keys to Nonjudgement with Greg Hammer, MD

    In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour, we welcome Stanford School of Medicine professor, physician, best-selling author, mindfulness expert, and innovator of the GAIN method, Greg Hammer, MD. Join us as Dr. Hammer shares wisdom to GAIN Keys to Nonjudgment and discover the life-enhancing rewards that begin to arise in your life.

    Most of us admirably strive to be “nonjudgmental” towards others. Coming from a place of nonjudgment allows us to see the best in others without letting our own biases get in the way. However, in order to become less judgmental, we need to change how we think about ourselves and the world around us.

    Dr. Hammer illustrates how we often make quick judgments every day about everything we see and put these things into categories, such as healthy/ unhealthy, affordable/ expensive, and good/ bad. And how much more often do we make judgments about ourselves?

    Discover the many benefits of nonjudgement, tips for implementing it into your life and learn how mindfulness, or living in the present moment, gives us the space to practice nonjudgment. First, we acknowledge how often we judge and that it is not necessary to judge. Then we can practice living in the present and accepting the world, ourselves, and others as they are. It's an enlightening hour from beginning to end as we learn about the benefits of nonjudgement, the problems that arise from judgement and realize how simple tactics of mindfulness can lead the way to a healthier and happier life.

    Greg Hammer, MD is a Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, pediatric intensive care physician, pediatric anesthesiologist, mindfulness expert, and the author of GAIN without Pain: The Happiness Handbook for Health Care Professionals. A member of the Stanford WellMD initiative, Dr. Hammer is currently the Chair of the Physician Wellness Task Force for the California Society of Anesthesiologists. He has been a visiting professor and lecturer on wellness at institutions worldwide and teaches GAIN to medical students, residents, and fellows at Stanford. Dr. Hammer’s clinical focus is in pediatric cardiac anesthesia and pediatric critical care medicine. His research is in developmental pharmacology and immunology, and he has an active laboratory with multiple ongoing studies in these areas. He has published widely on topics related to pharmacology and perioperative care of children undergoing cardiac and thoracic procedures as well as organ transplantation. Dr. Hammer is a health enthusiast and meditator, utilizing a non-duality and mindfulness-based approach, including the GAIN method.

    YOURS TRULY with James R. Hagerty

    YOURS TRULY with James R. Hagerty

    What’s your story? It may seem difficult to to summarize but nobody is better prepared to tell the story that is truly yours than YOURS TRULY!

    Today’s guest, James R. Hagerty, joins the Aging GreatFULLy power-hour with a special message for listeners: Someday, the story of your life will be written. The only question is how well will it be written and how will you define the meaning of your amazing life? Will it inspire others today and into the future to live more fully? What would you say about the unique journey of becoming you?

    As The Wall Street Journal’s only obituary writer, James R. Hagerty, has spent his professional life summing up the meaning of a life and capturing the final story for many. As a result, he has written a book, YOURS TRULY: An Obituary Writer’s Guide to Telling Your Story, to help readers preserve their best stories. He believes doing so may be the best gift you ever give to your family and friends. However, he also shares the side benefit in reviewing your life story and measuring your life before someone else does it for you, prompts us to think about life’s different paths and sudden twists. The takeaway is often discovering there’s still time for new adventures and opportunities to rewrite your script.

    Hagerty has written hundreds of obituaries about the famous, the should-have-been-famous, the infamous, notable, and little-known. He’s gifted in the ability to sum up a life’s glorious highs and lows, and goes straight to the heart of what it was all about. We uncover how everyone can apply Hagerty’s skills as an obit writer to examining their own life while still living it!

    Tune in as we discuss his recently released book, YOURS TRULY: An Obituary Writer’s Guide to Telling Your Story, a heartfelt and reassuring guide, with Hagerty leading you to find the extraordinary in your ordinary – the pivotal moments, the failures, the incredible, the beautiful, and the painful points that go into every life, and makes yours unique. You’ll discover that the highs and the lows, the disappointments and the small, quiet, beautiful moments, make up who you are. Looking at your life story so far is a spirited exercise that often leads to surprising places and in many cases, transformative experiences.

    Over the past four decades, James R. Hagerty has worked as a reporter, editor and bureau chief for the WSJ and the International Herald Tribune in Hong Kong, London, Brussels, Paris, Atlanta and New York. He holds a degree in economics from the University of North Dakota. To learn more about his work or purchase his book, YOURS TRULY, visit him at http://yours-truly.jamesrhagerty.com/.

    Self-Care for the Wisdom Years with Cheryl Richardson

    Self-Care for the Wisdom Years with Cheryl Richardson

    In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour as we bid farewell to fall and welcome the coming season of winter, we put the spotlight on celebrating transitions! Join this enriching hour as we welcome special guest, Cheryl Richardson, a New York Times bestselling author and self-care expert whose latest work is an audio release, Self-Care for the Wisdom Years: Practical Ways to Celebrate the Mystery and Wonder of Aging. During the hustle and bustle of this season and as the year comes to a close, this is a timely conversation. Cheryl shares how self-care is the key to a rich and joyous experience of aging and invites listeners to find inspiration in the changes and challenges of aging – and create a more authentic, soul-directed life.
    Cheryl’s work has been covered on Good Morning America, the Today Show, CBS This Morning and many more. She was the team leader for the Lifestyle Makeover Series on The Oprah Winfrey Show and joined Ms. Winfrey on the “Live Your Best Life” nationwide tour. Her books include Take Time for Your Life, The Art of Extreme Self-Care, How to Survive the Loss of a Pet, The Unmistakable Touch of Grace, Life Makeover and several others. Her latest book is Waking Up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife.
    But she was inspired to transition from pen to microphone with her latest audio creation. Cheryl’s wisdom is rich with inspiring practices to honor the experiences of growing older while finding meaningful ways to get the most out of life. She invites her readers and listeners to look at aging through the lens of what is gained verses what is lost. She heeds the importance of finding the freedom to cultivate deeper, more meaningful experiences of life. “The journey through mid-life and beyond,” says Cheryl Richardson, “is when we make the shift from less ego to more soul.”
    Through six audio sessions, Cheryl offers teachings, tools, journaling exercises, and guided practices towards discovering the opportunities and gifts of our later years. She discusses energy drains and ways to become more aware of and efficient about our vitality, the importance of investing in authentic connections, how to awaken aliveness and she uncovers her most valuable insights towards aging consciously, to flourish as a wise and compassionate elder. Listeners will so appreciate the invitation to rejoice in the beauty of aging by cultivating presence, pushing comfort zones, practicing meditation and even building the skill of sitting with space.
