    98. Embodiment and energy healing with Dr. Patricia Bonnard

    98. Embodiment and energy healing with Dr. Patricia Bonnard

    Dr. Patricia Bonnard explains how her career has been shaped by her multipotentialite tendencies, driving her to multidisciplinary studies, consultancy work around diverse issues, and later, energy healing, embodiment work, and coaching. She explains the importance for humans to find answers to life's questions by going inward, which as she notes, results in greater empowerment, authenticity, connection, and compassion. In other words, finding solutions within connects you more closely to your humanity. Find Dr. Patricia Bonnard on LinkedIn and on her website at https://www.starchaser-healingarts.com.

    96. Career goals and values

    96. Career goals and values

    In this solo episode, I discuss the need to unpack the values embedded in your career goals and notice, in micro-moments, how your mind will often tell you lies that derail you from aligning with your values. I encourage listeners to notice such lies so they can free themselves to pave a career and life path with meaning and intention as well as expand their capacities to do what they want to do and be who they want to be.

    95. Begin your self-compassion practice over the holidays

    95. Begin your self-compassion practice over the holidays

    In this solo episode, I discuss the challenges of the holiday season and how to begin practicing self-compassion during this time. I argue that the deep inner work of self-compassion is essential to processing emotion and re-orienting along a self-compassionate career path. Drawing on Dr. Kristin Neff's work, I discuss the essential elements of taking a self-compassion break: a) acknowledging your suffering, b) noticing that you are not alone on this difficult human journey, c) showing yourself kindness. If you want  to find more career wellness, schedule a free consult here: https://danielledelamare.com/

    94. Career wellness and your nervous system

    94. Career wellness and your nervous system

    In this solo episode, drawing on elements of Polyvagal Theory, I discuss how self-care anchors you in a calm and connected nervous system state. I also discuss how for many of us, after a long semester, our nervous systems become dysregulated and as a result, we become not only disconnected from our bodies and from others, but we also become disconnected from our career visions: we either cannot see our vision or we are furiously chasing an elusive vision. If your nervous system is dysregulated, I explain how you can return to a more connected state.

Marny R ,

Love this show! Great benefits for all academics

This show is an amazing resource for faculty and grad students, and former academics, providing insight into the cultures and unhealthy mindsets in many/most academic environments and guidance on resetting and controlling our paths. Guests and host cover a wide range of topics spanning careers, mental health, parenting and families, and wellness among others — I find value and practical resources in every show. This is one of two podcasts I regularly follow and I’m grateful Danielle produces it!

Every academic must subscribe!

An amazing resource for professors, former professors and aspiring professors seeking help and guidance with their career wellness, and all the other ancillary issues we don’t think about as we grind our way day by day as students or faculty.

Excellent content

Exactly what I was looking for! For those of us who look for meaning in what we do and wonder whether we can be ourselves in the box of academia.
