    Maximizing Change Management Through Kindness with James Rhee

    Maximizing Change Management Through Kindness with James Rhee

    In business, financial gain is often the basis for change, when in reality the lessons gleaned from the process are just as valuable as the change itself. For it is usually in hindsight we realize that the journey of any endeavor is more important than the end result. Taking a kindness plus math approach to business decisions means valuing empathy and human connections alongside financial metrics.



    To discover how to use kindness to maximize change, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with the inspirational teacher, author, and leader
    James Rhee. In James Rhee’s book red helicopter — a parable for our times: lead change with kindness plus a little math, he shares a story of how his life was forever changed when he walked away from his former identity to embrace an ailing business. His journey led to financial success but, more importantly, connectedness, joy, and friendship.

    Human Rewilding: Nurturing Ourselves in Nature with Craig Foster

    Human Rewilding: Nurturing Ourselves in Nature with Craig Foster

    Modern life is filled with many kinds of pollution. From the audible and visual pollution of our cities to the garbage we let leak into our natural world, humans are separating themselves from nature at a faster rate than ever before in our history. The flora and fauna so graciously given by our earth mother have been all but forgotten in many human environments. Observing, reconnecting, listening to ecopsychology, and exposing ourselves to the natural world can increase our health and well-being.



    To unearth essential information about how we join the human rewilding project and get back in tune with nature, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with the co-founder of the Sea Change Project, documentary filmmaker, and naturalist
    Craig Foster. Craig shares his rewilding and tracking techniques that instinctively regulate our bodies’ natural rhythm and release health and well-being chemicals into our system. He also offers an Ecopsychology toolkit for being with nature from his newest project, the book Amphibious Soul: Finding the Wild in a Tame World.

    Cognition: The Psychology of Thinking and How it Affects Everything with Emily Martin PhD

    Cognition: The Psychology of Thinking and How it Affects Everything with Emily Martin PhD

    Social pressures often influence an individual's decision-making process. The algorithms behind social media platforms can shape perceptions by showing content tailored to behavior, reinforcing or promoting specific ideas to further financial or political causes. It is proof that understanding human cognition can significantly influence our decisions, from the products we buy to the beliefs we hold.

    To reveal how cognitive psychology affects everything we do, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with prolific author and Professor Emerita of Anthropology at New York University, Dr. Emily Martin. As part of an experimental cognitive psychology lab, Dr. Martin studies the psychology of thinking and how it affects everything. She offers a glimpse into how humans process information and how the data collected has the opportunity to be used for the greater good or commoditized and sold to the highest bidder.

    Beyond Words: What We Say Without Talking with Stephen Furlich PhD

    Beyond Words: What We Say Without Talking with Stephen Furlich PhD

    Remember when you flirted just enough with a person to let them know you were interested but not too much that you risked rejection? Then, you were surprised when the other person had no clue what had happened. If you are a man reading this, it's understandable — you likely had no idea this scenario even unfolded. If you are a woman, it wasn't his fault; he's simply emotionally, physiologically, and genetically inclined to miss subtle hints!

    To reveal what we say without talking, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with author and associate professor at Texas A&M, Dr. Stephen Furlich about the principles of non-verbal communication.

    Hot Flashes and Cool Conversation: Navigating Menopausal Hijinks with Dr Marie Claire Haver MD

    Hot Flashes and Cool Conversation: Navigating Menopausal Hijinks with Dr Marie Claire Haver MD

    Scientific understanding of the hormonal changes women undergo during menopause is limited. Historically, women were excluded from major health studies prior to 1996 due to the belief that their fluctuating hormone levels were too complex to study. Today, women are changing the game by conducting their own research.

    To better understand how women can improve their quality of life during the aging process, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with a menopause expert, Dr. Mary Claire Haver. Dr. Haver is a certified OB/GYN, author, and founder of The Galveston Diet and Mary Claire Wellness Clinic.

    Dr. Haver offers guidance about how women can navigate menopause and aging. She shares the top complaints of women who experience menopausal symptoms, and the impact nutrition can have on managing those symptoms through her menopause toolkit and books, The New Menopause: Navigating Your Path Through Hormonal Change with Purpose, Power, and Facts and The Galveston Diet: The Doctor-Developed, Patient-Proven Plan to Burn Fat and Tame Your Hormonal Symptoms.
