    160. HeartShare: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Relationships

    In this solocast I talk about the importance of your thoughts and how they create the reality of your relationships. The way we think about our relationship and our partner matters. When we start to have judgmental and critical thoughts of our partners we tend to “see” more of this behavior which solidify these beliefs. We need to look at our partners from a different “lens”, one of more positive and appreciative beliefs and thoughts. It is a choice and a habit. How we think about our relationship and our partners is a direct correlation of the reality of what the relationship will be.
    “You have a choice on what you allow in to your perception and you have a choice of what you project out...choose wisely” - Pripo Teplitsky

    159. Adult Tantrums and How to Deal with Them

    159. Adult Tantrums and How to Deal with Them

    Corey Costanzo is the Co-Owner of Asheville’s Still Point Wellness Spa, a licensed addiction counselor, trauma specialist, master didgeridoo player, colleague, and good friend. In this episode, Corey and I have a conversation about Adult tantrums, especial mantrums (male tantrums). We have uncontrolled outburst and expressions of anger. Adult temper tantrums can be sometimes be used as a mechanism to manipulate others, cover up  fear, shame or guilt with anger or get attention, as  well divert attention from another issue.
    “adult tantrums usual show up as a disproportionate expression of anger to the circumstance  ” - Corey Costanzo

    158 Circling: A Powerful Communication Tool

    158 Circling: A Powerful Communication Tool

    Many people have never truly felt seen and heard before, which can be isolating and lonely. When you are deeply seen for who you are, the gift of feeling comfortable in your own skin can emerge. “Circling” is a communication technique and tool to help you learn how to get into another person’s world in a way for them to feel more deeply heard, seen and understood. In this episode, I have a conversation with my friend Gregg Levoy and we dive into this topic. Gregg is a frequent seminar leader who holds workshops in the faith-based, human-potential, educational, governmental, and business industries. He is a Passionate Living Expert who has penned bestselling books such as Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion as well as Callings: Finding and Following An Authentic Life which has been named as one of the Top 20 Career Publications by the Workforce Information Group. He regularly shares his insights and expertise as a frequent contributor to Psychology Today.
    “Authentic relating can transform relationships because it goes beyond story telling” - Gregg Levoy

    A Healthy Divorce

    A Healthy Divorce

    Separation and Divorce can be an emotional difficult time. The emotions of sadness, anger, grief and fear are typically experienced.  Most divorces are rife with conflict among separating and divorcing partners. It takes a tremendous toll not only on the people divorcing but also their children, family and friends. Is it possible to have a healthy divorce? One that honors not only each person but the union that was once filled with love and hope. Consciously Uncoupling is a mindful, respectful and loving approach to ending a relationship. In this episode I have a conversation with Becky Boisvert. An inveterate adventurer, Becky (she/her) has grown to see life itself as the adventure. When that adventure beckoned the transition out of her marriage, Becky created a process to help guide her and her former spouse, Sanne, through the terrain of separation and eventual divorce. Many who get to know Becky and Sanne are deeply inspired by the ease and consciousness with which they engaged this process.
    Since then, Becky has begun coaching individuals and couples through threshold experiences in life like the lead-in to marriage, divorce, health crises, and more, as well as holding mediations for more deeply embedded conflict. Becky is deeply devoted to supporting herself and others in transforming the grit and hardships in life into opportunities for healing.
     
    “If we came together once in love, we have the power to uncouple with dignity”

    Destigmatizing Addiction: A Family’s Journey

    Destigmatizing Addiction: A Family’s Journey

    The public health crisis of addiction and overdoses continue to rise. Fentanyl poisoning now ranks No.1 on the biggest list of killers of 18-45 yr. olds in the United States, for the last three years by a wide margin. Destigmatizing mental illness and addiction is crucial to empower those suffering to reach out for help. Many people do not understand and also fail to educate themselves on the importance of mental health and due to stereotypes and misrepresentations, some people do not understand that addiction is a disease and believe that people may even choose addiction. Much of the stigma comes not only from friends, family, the public, and the judicial system, but many believe that it is a moral character flaw and fail to see people struggling with addiction through the lens of integrity of individuals as whole human beings.
    In this episode I have a conversation with my next-door neighbors Eileen and Barry Cook whose daughter Catie died recently at the age of 31 of fentanyl poisoning after struggling with addiction for over 15 years. We talk about their journey as a family and a couple in navigating the rough waters of emotion and how they had different ways of coping and addressing their daughter’s addiction and ultimately the respect and compassion that grew in their hearts.
    “Your journey is your journey and it’s okay to feel your feelings” 
    - Eileen Cook

    Having Your Partner's Back

    Having Your Partner's Back

    What does it mean to have your partner’s back? The feeling of emotional safety and the knowing that you can rely on your partner in many ways, especially at time of stress, overwhelm and crises is a cornerstone to this support and safety. Relieving each other’s “load” and lending support is a hallmark of healthy dependence. Emotional safety is also taken away and eroded when partners don’t have each other’s back.
    In this episode I have a conversation with my wife, Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky. She is the founder of Artsy Goddess Studio, where she actively carries out her role in helping others and the planet heal. Rainbow is passionate about art, as seen in the upcycled clothing she creates from second-hand materials, as well as the visual arts she creates, such as murals, paintings, and tapestries. Yvonne also helps women transform through voice empowering workshops and helps couples through workshops and retreats that she co-facilitates with me.
    “Some people seem to roll easier in the habit of complaining than of highlighting what is good about their partner or their child” 
    - Yvonne Rainbow Teplitsky

Learning in every podcast!

I have been listening to Pripo for 9 or so months and am so appreciative of the wisdom and lessons he offers in each and every podcast. He has a relaxed and welcoming delivery that offers hope for those of us looking to gain clarity about relationships. I myself didn’t have great relationship role models growing up and have found his podcast helps to fill that knowledge/ experience gap. His podcast topics are delivered by him or guests and are always on point with laughter, compassion, and personal stories (that make the topics all so relatable). We can all learn to relate a little better for the lessons he offers.
Thank you Pripo!
