EP270: What we teach young people about emotion
I often hear parents say these things to their children about emotion: “You decide how you feel.” “You choose your reactions.” “What other people say has no meaning except the meaning you give it.”We can ask ourselves: Are these things we heard somewhere that seem helpful, or are they our direct experience? Do you–mom or

The BEST part of every Monday!
I seriously cannot say enough about how much Amy Johnson has changed the way I see the world. This podcast became the BEST part of every Monday back in early 2019 when I was truly suffering. It was like a beacon of light and a ray of hope. As I woke up to the truth of wholeness and healing within me, the podcast morphed from a space of hope to a weekly opportunity to deeply ground in the awareness that I do not share the limits of my body, my stories, or my beliefs. Each week, I continue to look forward to Amy’s podcast, not because o “need” it but because it inspires a wonderful remembering of who I am beyond the story of me. ❤️ I am so grateful for this podcast. Amy, I hope you never stop making them.

Her teachings are similar to the Three Principles and the easy to understand way that Dr. Amy teaches her approach sinks in so much easier!
