Vanessa Bennett and Dené Logan are two soul sisters and therapists who connected over their shared love of depth psychology—known as the psychology of the soul. It is a template for diving beneath the surface to examine the complex natures of being human while on the quest for wholeness, including the relationship to spirit. Through their training and lived experiences with depth, yogic psychology, and mindfulness, they developed a passion for supporting others in living their most authentic lives while cultivating a fulfilling and rich relationship with the Self, capital “S.”
Every Wednesday, Vanessa and Dené look to demystify, de-stigmatize, and desensitize what goes on both inside the therapy room and in daily life, through soul-provoking conversations with fellow seekers, thought leaders, changemakers, and real people during live coaching sessions as they navigate the hard work it takes to be a human.
This podcast is, for sure, Cheaper Than Therapy.

    Ep 216: Parenting with Dr. Shefali

    Ep 216: Parenting with Dr. Shefali

    We’ll be back with all new episodes of Cheaper than Therapy starting next week! But we’re so excited about the launch of Dr. Shefali’s new podcast, PARENTING & YOU, that we wanted to do a throwback episode to when we had her on the podcast to talk about her most recent book, The Parenting Map.  
    Dr. Shefali is not your typical parenting expert and PARENTING & YOU is not your typical parenting podcast. There are no guest experts or celebrities. Every episode has 2 parents being  helped through their parenting journey.
    It’s raw, real and totally relatable.
    In Ep. 142, we did an Instagram Live with Dr. Shefali, three time New York Times best-sellers author, including her two landmark books The Conscious Parent and The Awakened Family. 
    We talked about:
    🌟 The importance of raising our children to be sovereign beings, rather than a possession that fit into our idealized parenting fantasies
    🌟 Shifting our parenting paradigms from being in control to being in charge, and what that tangibly looks like
    🌟 The difference between ego-enhancing boundaries and life-enhancing boundaries in parenting
    🌟 What to do when your parenting paradigm/style doesn’t align with your partners, and what that means for your children
    Dr. Shefali has been a huge source of inspiration for both of us - certainly as women and therapists, but even more than that - in the way we show up as parents. We just know you’re going to be as inspired by this conversation with her as we were!

    Ep 212: Complex Connections: Navigating Feedback with Authenticity

    Ep 212: Complex Connections: Navigating Feedback with Authenticity

    Ep 212: Complex Connections: Navigating Feedback with Authenticity
    This episode of Cheaper than Therapy the Podcast is part of a series where we answer questions submitted by listeners. We dive into the complexities of accountability in all relationships. 
    Some Takeaways from this Episode:
    ✨Recurring Themes in Society: Many of the topics addressed in the show are themes that have come up repeatedly within therapeutic spaces, reflecting collective societal trends and healing journeys indicating a widespread desire to evolve past self-abandonment and the cultivation of healthier relationships
    ✨Staying Authentic: The importance of staying true to your beliefs and message, even when it may not resonate with everyone, to remain authentic to Self
    ✨ Personal Accountability: Consider how you may be self-abandoning or using relationships as a means to avoid addressing something you may need to work through, and how deeper self-examination will naturally lead to more authentic relationships
    ✨Complexity and Nuance in Human Behavior: Not simplifying complex human behaviors into labels (like narcissist), and instead take a compassionate and curious approach to understanding others’ actions, promoting dialogue that embraces the full complexity of human experiences and interactions

    Ep 211: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness with Dr Peter Levine

    Ep 211: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness with Dr Peter Levine

    In this Cheaper than Therapy episode, we sit down with Dr. Peter Levine for a deep dive into the complexity of trauma, and the transformative possibilities within therapeutic practices. Dr. Levine holds a doctorate in biophysics and a doctorate in psychology. He is the developer of Somatic Experiencing and Somatic Experiencing International, a naturalistic and neurobiological approach to healing trauma, Founder and President of the Ergos Institute for Somatic Education, dedicated to community outreach and post-advanced somatic experiencing training, and author of several best-selling books on trauma. His work has been taught to over 30,000 therapists in over 42 countries. 
    Some Takeaways from this Episode:
    ✨ Trauma and the Body: The importance of recognizing that trauma is not merely a brain disorder, but becomes deeply embedded in the body’s responses and requires therapeutic techniques that addresses physical manifestations of trauma(s)
    ✨Interconnectedness of Generations: How trauma is interconnected across generations and survival mechanisms passed down, recognizing that patterns and responses inherited from ancestors may not just be through behavior, but through epigenetic modifications
    ✨ Healing in Community: The importance of community and collective healing practices when addressing trauma, and that the often isolated approach to mental health should be replaced with communal support systems and shared healing experiences

This Show Has Helped ME Grow So MUCh

Thank you V

Religion

I love your podcast, thank you so much for sharing such meaningful conversation. I have a difficult request. I am in a relationship with someone that grew up very agnostic and I grew up the extreme other end conservative Christian. I am no longer part of that aspect of my life, I consider myself atheist, but it is still part of me because you can’t ever completely take that away from someone’s cultural upbringing. How do you navigate that relationship?! I love him so much but when it comes to my family who is still practicing Christian, he can’t do it.

Becoming one sided

I used to like this show a lot more. Now it feels like it is becoming pretty one sided and predictable… even defensive. I think you are losing some nuance. still 4 stars because I loved your past work.
