    S10E1: Summer Spotlight - Being Known

    S10E1: Summer Spotlight - Being Known

    Welcome to season 10 of Being Known Podcast. This season we are taking a look back at where we have come over the last couple of years, to determine where we are headed in the future, and as a way to continue bringing you the best content for how to live a life being fully known.
     
    Each week we are spotlighting one episode from a previous season (the best of the best, so to speak). This is just a sample of what that entire season was all about. We hope you have, or will, take the time to listen to all the episodes again.
     
    Let’s start at the very beginning. Join host Pepper Sweeney and psychiatrist Curt Thompson as, together, we awaken to the journey of being fully known.

    S9E10: Full Circle

    S9E10: Full Circle

    Welcome to Being Known Podcast. This season we are discussing Curt's latest book, The Deepest Place as we carefully cover each chapter to deepen your understanding of suffering and the formation of hope.
     
    We started this season on suffering with what necessarily must precede it if hope is what we want. And now that we are near the season’s conclusion, we find ourselves where we started.
     
    Come hang out with us to discover how what we first thought would only be painful—our suffering—ultimately, because of Jesus and the way our brains and relationships are made to operate, leads to the joy that enables us to fearless encounter our suffering wherever it will emerge in our lives over the course of them. We can’t wait for you to be with us, and join us in all that God has in store.

    S9E9: Hope

    S9E9: Hope

    Welcome to Being Known Podcast. This season we are discussing Curt's latest book, The Deepest Place as we carefully cover each chapter to deepen your understanding of suffering and the formation of hope.
     
    Hope is one thing. Durable hope—that’s something different altogether. What is hope, after all? Is it something that merely happens to fall in our laps? Something that we can only hope to have?
     
    The world of interpersonal neurobiology has some things to say about hope that are, well, very, very hopeful. And at the same time, shed light on where Paul is going, as he has come all the way from suffering, through perseverance and character to bring us to where we are.
     
    Join the conversation this week as we walk together into the hope that is more than just a word. More than what we merely hope we will have. And we’re far more than hopeful that you will agree with us when you do.

    S9E8: Character

    S9E8: Character

    Welcome to Being Known Podcast. This season we are discussing Curt's latest book, The Deepest Place as we carefully cover each chapter to deepen your understanding of suffering and the formation of hope.
     
    We deeply long to be persons of character; we would much rather not, however, have to persevere through suffering to get there. But it turns out that that is exactly how character is formed. Moreover, the formation of character is the necessary prerequisite for hope that lasts, not the flimsy kind that so much or our lives are used to. And therein lies the good news. The resilience of character, something that others see in us but that we often do not see in ourselves, brings us ever closer to the hope we long to form and maintain.
     
    Listen in to these two characters (Pepper and Curt, that is. Well, maybe just Pepper) as we learn what we can do to develop the character that we so long to have.

    S9E7: Perseverance

    S9E7: Perseverance

    Welcome to Being Known Podcast. This season we are discussing Curt's latest book, The Deepest Place as we carefully cover each chapter to deepen your understanding of suffering and the formation of hope.
     
    Who hasn’t felt like giving up when the going got, not only tough, but tough for a really long time. We love the idea of what perseverance can ultimately lead to; we would often rather arrive at what we want without having to persevere. Because to be sure: perseverance is not easy. But as we have said on this podcast before, the brain can do a lot of really hard things for a long time, as long as it doesn’t have to do it by itself.
     
    Tune in to hear Pepper persevere in having to be in conversation with Curt yet one more time, and discover again what it means to SNAG the brain while we form durable hope in the process.

Grateful

There are other podcasts that seek to accomplish what this one does they don’t come close the insight of Kurt and Pepper and the way they connect with each other goes deep and an effective way to present a transforming message. Thank you, Kurt Pepper, and Amy.

The Most Healing Content

My first introduction to Dr. Curt Thompson was many years ago shortly after his first book, Anatomy of the Soul, was published and he did a workshop on the book at our church in TN. I took copious notes but then years went by and I forgot most of what I learned from him and his book. A few years ago a brain retraining program was recommended to me. It was really helpful, but also had some New Age underpinnings. So in my search for a Christian based brain retraining program I ran across Dr. Thompson’s website and discovered the Being Known Podcast. THANK YOU LORD. THANK YOU LORD. THANK YOU LORD. Y’all listen! ‘Nuff said.
