I know some of the most interesting and inspiring people who are helping to keep humanity afloat in their own unique ways, in the middle of a world health crisis. I want you to meet them too. First, as humans. Second, as experts in their field. To hear their stories of overcoming their personal struggles and trauma (including PTSD and cPTSD) to bring their weird and wonderful heart healing gifts to the world in quiet and loud ways. Let's give these folx the applause they deserve and, in turn, be reminded of that part of ourselves that can never be lost or dissolved regardless of what is going on around us. Something numinous, magical, and even funny in each of us that we call Self. p.s. I like F bombs. Who am I? I’m a mindful strength and movement coach, a trauma-informed embodied resilience expert, educator and a Jungian analyst in training. My goal: To help people cultivate a deeply felt sense of resilience and empowerment, so they can weather storms in life while keeping their hearts and spirits alive.(Podcast editor: Chase Valeriote)

    "Healing is Holding and Being Held" with Molly Boeder Harris

    "Healing is Holding and Being Held" with Molly Boeder Harris

    ***Trigger warning for this episode - we discuss sensitive topics including sexual assault and violence.
     
    In this episode I had the pleasure of speaking with Molly Boeder Harris about her work and her journey with the Breathe Network and her own experiencing recovering from sexual assault. The Breathe Network connects survivors of sexual trauma with sliding-scale, trauma-informed, holistic healing practitioners across the United States and Canada. 

    We talk about:
    How understanding our nervous systems is not just relevant for people living with acute or overt trauma histories and is a useful resource for navigating life.How we over protect certain area of the body in the somatic and movement world and then neglect to think about other areas of the body that are unique and specific to a survivor's story.How the body is a resource for pleasure and joy and goodness in the way we offer yoga and somatic practice to trauma survivors.How long it can take a survivor to come to terms with the fact they've experienced sexual assault.The ways that the Breathe Network focuses on anti-oppressive best practices for trauma education in addressing both personal and collective trauma....and much more.

    More about Molly

    Molly Boeder Harris is the Founder and Executive Director of The Breathe Network, a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), and a trauma-informed yoga teacher and trainer. Her own experiences surviving sexual trauma catalyzed her to enter the trauma healing field in 2003, beginning with her work as a medical and legal advocate with children and adult survivors, a campus violence prevention educator and as a yoga teacher specializing in working with survivors. She earned her Master’s Degree in International Studies and her Master’s Certificate in Women’s & Gender Studies, which inform the way she holds both individual and collective forms of trauma and oppression close together in her work. Over the last 2 decades of her career and healing trajectory, she has found that the practices which recognize the whole person – body, mind and soul – and which also honour the ways in which trauma and resilience manifest physiologically, offer the greatest possibility for embodied justice and social change.

    Decolonizing Wellness and Embracing Empowerment for Change with Rebeckah Price

    Decolonizing Wellness and Embracing Empowerment for Change with Rebeckah Price

    In this episode, I had the honour of speaking with Rebeckah Price about the powerful work she has been leading for many years to reshape and decolonize wellness. She discusses what it actually means to create real systematic change in the health and wellness community for BIPOC and other marginalized communities, given the inherit inequities that exist in the wellness industrial complex.  Rebeckah's deep commitment to liberation is truly inspiring and will move you, as it did me. 

    Two stand out quotes that summarize the wisdom Rebeckah shared:

    "Any people that come from a history of resistance, the idea of liberation is fundamental to who you are."

    "Wellness is an industrial complex because it's inherently telling you there's something wrong with you, that you're broken, and that's coming from a colonial mentality."

    More about Rebeckah:

    Rebeckah Price is a wellness advocate and yoga instructor (RYT 200), that draws on her wealth of knowledge of working in underserved, marginalized, racialized, and immigrant communities in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean. In 2015, Rebeckah founded irise yoga + wellness- as a way to connect, promote, bring awareness to and foster the inclusion of people of colour and other historically marginalized groups in yoga and wellness spaces. 
    Rebeckah's work is rooted in an intersectional understanding of power  and harnessing the tools and resources to facilitate community change. With over 20 years in the not-for-profit sector as a Community Development and Engagement Specialist, Rebeckah has worked on and developed strategies and policies related to diversity & inclusion, equity, conflict resolution, settlement and integration and creating safe, cohesive communities. Rebeckah uses her lived experience as a Woman of Colour and her unique expertise in community development and engagement to bridge and address the gap of diversity in the wellness industry through workshops, etc.

    'Process Not Perfection' in Complex Trauma and Addiction Recovery with Dr. Jamie Marich

    'Process Not Perfection' in Complex Trauma and Addiction Recovery with Dr. Jamie Marich

    In this episode, I had the honour to speak with Dr. Jamie Marich about ongoing and ever changing trauma and addiction recovery. Two of the things she said resonates so deeply for me:

    "When I look at change, so much about it is in the healing power of consistency and I think that's fundamentally good for people who have survived complex trauma." 
    AND
    "We may have parts and aspects of self but we all represent a working wholeness. What you have is already inside you. It just may take some processing to fully embrace that as truth and live it fully."

    Jamie is one of the bravest and most authentic trauma therapists and experts I know. She speaks openly about living in both addiction recovery and with dissociation, paving the way for our shame to fall away and transformation to emerge, bringing us back into our innate wholeness.

    "Theatre Saved My Life" with Kevin T. Hobbs

    "Theatre Saved My Life" with Kevin T. Hobbs

    I just can't express enough gratitude to Kevin T. Hobbs for sharing this conversation with me. I have been left changed, moved and inspired by what he shared and I know you will too. We talk about how his participation in a specific theatre production saved his life and his work in bringing the same healing power to people through the D.O.S.E. Foundation. 
    How he went from the throws of homelessness and depression to peace and hope, the focus of his new podcast, Kevin's Way Out as well as his upcoming feature film.

    Here are just a few snippets of wisdom from Kevin:

    “I love theatre because at its best it just allows us to be, be whoever who we are, be wherever we are in that journey in life, and to just be without any kind of excuses.”

     “Having the confidence to be confronted with the unknown is improv. Having the confidence to reach outside yourself can save your life.”

    “Improv is a beautiful form of non-violent communication.”

    “There’s space for all of us. One of the things that we fight against in society is this idea that there’s not. But there is, we just have to accept where we are, take what we have and keep going. "

    More about Kevin:

    Kevin T. Hobbs is a professional actor, Sundance trained filmmaker, writer, musician, and SEL certified teaching artist hailing from Central Illinois. Kevin has appeared on movie screens and stages across the country. He is also the host of the new podcast, Kevin’s Way Out.
    Kevin is also the founder of the D.O.S.E. Foundation (a nonprofit whose mission it is to ensure that the theater community becomes a more accurate mirror of the world in which we live), where he functions as the executive director and serves as the artistic director of the upcoming National August Wilson Monologue Competition for Central Illinois (2021), for which the D.O.S.E. Foundation is the regional sponsor. 
    Currently, Kevin is hard at work on his first feature film, 𝙈𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙤𝙬.
