In October we're focusing on the mental & spiritual health of men, beginning with this incredible interview with Charlotte/Lake Norman-based Psychologist/Hypnotist/Author, Damon Silas, of Damon Silas Psychological and Consultation Services.
Damon shares his own journey of overcoming horrific family loss, the murder of his beloved sister, as described in his memoir, From Mourning to Knight. How does a man move through a "Dark Night of the Soul" like this, and into living from a compassionate heart, in service to his authentic self and the world?
We cover the topics of stigmas males have around mental health help, the epidemic of men separating the mind/body/spirit connection and numbing their pain, and the mistake of approaching life issues as simple behavorial problems.
Damon draws from his years helping veterans through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma, as we talk more about what PTSD and trauma actually are, and how they can be detected and treated.
We also look at how men's relationships with family, particularly their fathers, impact them (you) as adults. Plus, where does society's screwed up messaging stack up against men? What role do their peers play? And what is happening in the brain chemistry of a man who has been struggling for a long time?
For all the men who fall through the cracks in this vital and vulnerable conversation about mental/physical/spiritual health - we will not let you fall alone.
Tune in as we give men a voice in The Spiritual Charlotte community & beyond.
