    The Upright Apology: A Tool for Transformation

    The Upright Apology: A Tool for Transformation

    Apologies are commonly associated with shame, power games, or beliefs about who’s right and who’s wrong. In this episode, we talk about the freedom to be had in making apologies without shame and in full ownership of our experience.

    “When you make an apology that's upright, that's empowered, it feels fantastic. You feel strength in it. You feel responsible. You feel empowered."

    Emile DeWeaver — Life After Murder: On Fear, Freedom, and Identity

    Emile DeWeaver — Life After Murder: On Fear, Freedom, and Identity

    At the age of eighteen — just before the birth of his child — Emile began serving a life sentence for murder. In this episode, Emile tells us how he came to face the fear that drove him to kill a man, and which followed him into prison. He shares how he learned to love himself and see through an identity that might have otherwise imprisoned him in yet another manner. After finding inner freedom, Emile eventually wrote his way out from behind bars as well: his sentence was commuted in 2017 after serving twenty-one years, a testament to his journey and transformation.

    "I am under no illusions, right? I cannot make amends to the man I killed. I cannot make amends to his family. I still need to be a north star, right? In my world, in my life. So I can spend my time hating myself, [or] I could spend my time helping to create a world where little kids don't kill other little kids."

    Will Chesney — Reintegrating as a Combat Veteran, Surviving a Traumatic Brain Injury and Transcending an Old Identity

    Will Chesney — Reintegrating as a Combat Veteran, Surviving a Traumatic Brain Injury and Transcending an Old Identity

    Will Chesney found identity and purpose as a Navy SEAL, one of the military’s most elite teams, where he was required to perform calmly and effectively under the most extreme circumstances. However, years of neurological and psychological trauma left Will in a very dark place. Unable to do what he loved most or connect effectively with others, he turned to drinking and isolation. After hitting rock bottom, a friend reached out and invited Will to join him on a journey of self-discovery that allowed him to tap into his resilience and get himself back on his feet. Tune in as we learn what Will did to find healing and meaning in life after war.

    Will served in the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group as an operator and a dog handler in the Osama Bin Laden raid. He was awarded a Silver Star and Purple Heart for his bravery.

    "I woke up and it was me again at one point during the weekend. I know I was a SEAL and everybody always says, “Oh, we can't relate to what you've gone through.” But everybody has trauma. Every life is good but life’s hard sometimes. Everybody deals with trauma no matter what."

    Connection: A State Beyond States

    Connection: A State Beyond States

    We talk a lot about connection in this podcast — connection with ourselves, our emotions, our relationships and with the world around us. It’s essentially what we’re pointing to in every topic we discuss. In today’s episode, we talk about why that is, and how orienting toward connection in all aspects of our lives facilitates sustained expansion, increases our capacity, and puts us in touch with something bigger than ourselves.

Worth Every Second. Thank You

I recently just finished listening to every single episode in this podcast, and sincerely, from the very bottom of my heart, thank you Brett and Joe. This podcast was truly transformational for me. I’ve spent so much time working with all sorts of modalities for healing and growth, and this was by far the most practical and easy to implement. I spent a lot less time than usual wrestling with heady esoteric intellectualizations and far more time in my body noticing the subtle differences between bracing and embracing. The last couple months for me have been by far the most emotionally volatile of my life, so this podcast was especially timely - helping me to welcome, trust and learn from the big feelings of grief, anger and fear as they moved through my body.

This is more than insight porn

Meaning: I often find that useful podcasts around Self-Development hit hard during the listen, but then fade away during the day. No matter how hard I try to fight that with notes.

This is different.

I expect that’s because a lot of what they talk about can be experienced right away with some body sensation, or can be easily mapped onto some experience you once had, because it’s *about* body sensations, and not merely theoretical.

It shows that Joe’s experience is grounded in the reality of all the people he worked with.

I’ve been listening to this podcast for months, often repeating episodes multiple times. It noticeably changed my life. ‘Noticeably’ doesn’t even seem to be the right word, for that seems to hint at a subtle shift; The podcast – and the integration of it – drastically reduced suffering in my life, enabled me to express myself in difficult moments, and invited more joy and love in my life.

Even more than the feeling that “I’m finally at a great place,” I feel that I’m on an ever-lasting, ever-refining, vibrant journey of self-discovery.

While most of these lessons come from Joe Hudson, co-host Brett does an admirable job at extracting these ideas, summarising them with care and nuance, and poking it when it’s unclear.

Grateful for both, this is special. Love, love, love.
