    40-Occupational Therapy for Self Care with Michelle-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    Occupational Therapy (OT) is a practical form of therapy that provides solutions to integrate and participate in everyday life functions and activities. During times of change, it is important to come back to our mindset and our physical body to become more grounded. OT is one way we can do so! Take a listen and learn some practical, simple ways you can reduce stimulation overload and find some peace of mind.
    In this episode, we speak with Michelle Denison-Darragh who is a registered and licensed Occupational Therapist who specializes in Sensory Integration Therapy. She has spent time working in pediatric mental health settings and most recently in a Sensory Integration Occupational Therapy clinic. She has pursued additional training in the areas of Trauma and Attachment, Therapeutic Listening, and mindfulness-based approaches. Michelle has a passion for working with children and their families to help children develop the skills needed to be successful in their everyday lives using creative, fun approaches.

    38-The Importance of Being an Ally with Rebecca Toner-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    38-The Importance of Being an Ally with Rebecca Toner-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    Being an Ally is more important than ever in this time of challenge, frustration, and confusion. It is time to remove the confusion around what it means to truly be an ally, specifically for people of color, if you are a white person in America. 
    People of color should not be expected to educate white people about their experience or mere existence; it is the responsibility of white people to listen, to guide each other through the process of recognizing the impacts of privilege, and to move forward to learn and grow as become allies.
    This week we spoke to Rebecca Toner on this topic. Rebecca is a Trauma and Boundaries Coach and founder of The Nest Center for Coaching as well as a Licensed Processional Counselor in the state of Connecticut where she owns and practices out of Mental Health Counseling and Consultation Services. Rebecca specializes in helping people who are trying to stop identifying with long standing trauma.

    36-Finding Balance & Setting Goals-The Ayurvedic Way-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    36-Finding Balance & Setting Goals-The Ayurvedic Way-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    Ayurveda is based on ancient wisdom and tradition rooted in the Vedas. It includes a deep-rooted, simple and tangible approach to health and wellness based on balance. As we enter the new year, it is tempting to create a new set of goals to achieve within the span of 12 months. Before we embark on setting and striving towards our goals, Kristen urges listeners to slow down and reflect on our current state of balance and connection to Atma, the self. If we are out of balance with the self, then we are not able to strive toward goals that are in full alignment with our dharma, or purpose. First, we can come home to our soul signature and recognize what brings us balance so that we can fully achieve balance and achieve our goals.

    35-We Don't Need a "New You"-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    35-We Don't Need a "New You"-The Old Soul Millennial Podcast

    The world does not need a "New You" in 2020, we just want the authentic, true version of you. There can be a lot of pressure to start fresh, to create a vision board, or to do something different in the new year/decade, but Kristen challenges listeners to own who they are right now and simply fine tune how they show up in the world. 
    This episode provides some practical suggestions for embracing, loving, and embodying who you are at your core RIGHT NOW. The world needs you to be yourself so that we can all be inspired and encouraged to be our full selves, as well.

ChiquiAngel ,

Soulful

I love learning from Kristen and she has such a great mentality of things. She also very straightforward and very soulful I enjoy listening to her podcast and you should too!

bobhopewasthebest ,

No an old soul

The upspeak of the host reveals to me that this woman is simply a hipster millennial. A true old soul does not speak like that.

Dee Freer ,

Joyful Healing

I enjoyed this podcast so much and can't wait for part 2. :) I work with both Caroline and Kristen and both have shown me how to heal myself using healing foods, healing practices, and calming techniques. They teach me so much about my body and what it is speaking to me. My husband and kids even ask me to see what Caroline says or what would Kristen do. :) These are two friends I wish I could emmerse myself in their friendship even though we live in separate states. They are very knowledgeable and all can learn from them.
