    Stop Your POPs

    Stop Your POPs

    Have you identified the scary monsters that are hiding deep within your brain?

    In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie reflect on Pathways of the Past (POPs). They are automatic and often problematic, stress response mechanisms built upon past experiences ingrained within our brains, which they had already talked about with Annie Hopper in an episode that was part of their Brain Series. As humans, we learn from significant emotional events that happen to us, and if they are negative, our brains are wired to protect us from similar events in the future. However, sometimes these lie behind habitual patterns: in the thoughts, emotions, or behaviors that occur when we’re under a triggering or stressful situation and we may not even notice. Susan and CrisMarie discuss how to identify these POPs, share some steps to take to unhook yourself from them and find new healthier ways to deal with conflict situations.

    Tune in to learn more about POPs and how to stop yours from affecting you!

    Kicking Off 2023

    Kicking Off 2023

    For 2023, Susan and CrisMarie are excited to dive into their own material from a new perspective.

    In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, our hosts kick off the new year by sharing their excitement about working together with Rali, a company with a platform that delivers educational content and experiences to entire organizations, teams, and other corporate customers. Partnering with Rali is a great opportunity for Susan and CrisMarie to bring more of their material to new recipients. They specifically reflect on how to deal with the stress of conflict, as stress impacts not only individuals’ nervous systems but also organizations and communities. Looking into their own material was an opportunity to tie in so many of the things they’ve nurtured from, and worked with over the last year, like Jill Bolte Taylor’s Whole Brain teachings, and other approaches to finding balance within your own nervous system and engaging better with people.

    Tune into this episode to kick the year off with Susan and CrisMarie and catch a glimpse of what’s to come!

    Moving from 2022 to 2023

    Moving from 2022 to 2023

    It’s the most wonderful time to pause, reflect on the highs and lows of the year, and see how we can grow for 2023.

    In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan takes the stand by herself and shares her own reflection on what 2022 was for her. She recaps some of the big global occurrences that happened throughout the year but also dives into her achievements and experiences, talking about the events that affected her, what she’s proud of, and even some that didn’t turn out the way she wanted but she’s still grateful for. She talks about some of the exciting work she and CrisMarie did in this podcast and the heartwarming moments she lived with her family. Susan speaks about a personal mantra and how finding one for the year can give her a clear intention, word, or theme to navigate the new year. Perhaps you can find some inspiration and decide to do the same.

    Tune in and let Susan guide you into a reflection you can make about your own year!

Ask yourself, what brings you back into a sense of joy, balance, or gratitude, and get in touch with it. You’ll notice the results within yourself and all around you.

Finding the Dragon Fire Within

This episode is great to hear, if you are successful, and driven, and still feeling empty. Dov speaks really well, and from his own life experience. Authenticity. Courage. And the one that I'm still so moved by, taking back the disenfranchised parts of myself. Give it a try, when you are walking or not trying to do 3 other things at the same time. So that you can really listen.
