Thank you addressing my submitted question

I am thankful that you included my question on your podcast (regarding giving feedback about hygiene) and appreciate the dynamic and multifaceted discussion that ensued.
As a massage teacher (and massage practitioner) for 26 years the multiple layers of considerations you and your colleague unpacked on your podcast shed light on the matter with nuanced compassion and insight.
Oftentimes, that which is central to this communication can become even more ‘charged’ due to power differentials whether within the classroom (teacher/student) or in the massage therapy context (provider/massage recipient) not to mention in ‘egalitarian’ relationships.
It is not easy to model the communication for others to appreciate let alone stay present in the flow of the communication itself when directly conveying the sensitive feedback in the actual situation.
Beth Buelow and her guest refreshingly brainstorm a variety of points of view with mental poise and acumen.
The audio quality of this podcast is
top-notch — transitions are seamless and smooth and engenders an aesthetically appealing sound-space; it creates an ambience that fosters the listeners’ capacity to ‘tune in’ in both mind and heart.
The subject matters that are addressed are fecund and it is difficult not to digress while unpacking these topics— and the editing prowess that goes into streamlining these dynamic discussions can not be taken for granted. Not an easy task when grappling with content as richly layered as Beth Buelow and her guests tackle.
I hope your podcast continues to gain momentum and a broad listenership.
Respectfully,
Caren
