    Lou Godbold is the director of Echo.
    Echo provides trauma & resilience training for families, communities, professionals and organizations. There is always more to learn on this subject and Lou continues to graciously share her knowledge with me. When I talk to her I always feel more calm, more empathetic. We talk about how trauma affects the brain. She explains the concept of “power with” as opposed to the “power over”model, and how much more effective we would all be if fear weren’t running the show, which only creates more trauma

    Tatiana von Furstenberg

    Tatiana von Furstenberg studied Modern Culture and Media, Comparative Literature and Education at Brown University and did graduate work in Applied Psychology at New York University. In 2016 von Fürstenberg conceived of and collaborated with the organization Black and Pink to create an art exhibit titled On The Inside which spotlights the work of incarcerated LGBTQ artists. 

    She uses the freedom of language to explore the adventures of her life, and make sense of them. Tatiana was born with an undiagnosed muscle disease, and spent years not understanding why she was out of step with others. Storytelling became Tatiana’s lifeline. The infinite vastness of language became a vehicle through which she could participate in the world. Tatiana von Furstenberg has crafted language and created narratives across many disciplines, most notably screenwriting (Tanner Hall), and writing lyrics for songs (Playdate).

Great and inspiring listens!!

I’m privileged to know the host a bit, and have now listened to 6 of her episodes. Katherine is incredibly articulate, unfortunately a season warrior against abuses she experienced, and has attracted fascinating guests ranging from other victims to activists to committed policy makers. All determined to be change agents. 👏👏👏👏👏👏
