    Ep12: ‘When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.' A conversation about finding light following the recent events in Israel with Rabbi Yaakov Klein

    Ep12: ‘When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.' A conversation about finding light following the recent events in Israel with Rabbi Yaakov Klein

    We have all been stunned, in light of the recent tragic events in Israel, by the barbaric brutality and extreme lack of humanity displayed by the Hamas terrorists. As our minds grapple to try to make sense of actions that are beyond human comprehension, it seems as if we have no words.Yet words are important to attempt to integrate what happened - and is still happening. Trauma is often a response to pushing away events as a protective mechanism, rather than integrating. We will address this ...

    Ep 11: “I don’t need to seek belonging externally, because I have this love, this abundance within me.” - A philosophy of life that embraced me, with Mitesh Sheth

    Ep 11: “I don’t need to seek belonging externally, because I have this love, this abundance within me.” - A philosophy of life that embraced me, with Mitesh Sheth

    Ep 10: "I don't want to be angry" - Forgiving parents after childhood traumas with Jasmine Hanson

    One of the early Resilience Files episodes featured the powerful story of Max Gleason. Max movingly described his search for meaning and love after tragically losing his wife and two small children when their car was intentionally struck head-on by a man attempting suicide. At the time of that podcast, Max asked me if his girlfriend Jasmine – and now fiancé – could join our conversation, as she herself was on a profound healing journey having experienced intense turmoil, abuse, and negle...

    Ep 09: "I had this sense that I was going to be OK" - Overcoming MS with Linda Bloom

    Our guest today, Linda Bloom, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 28 and was told by the doctors to prepare for a debilitating life bound by care. However, as the defiant daughter of holocaust survivors, Linda could not accept that her situation was beyond help. Unconvinced that the medicines being offered were right for her, she took the bold decision to look beyond traditional medical interventions. Having attended a retreat with Professor George Jelinek in Melbourne, Austra...

    Ep 08: 'Oli’s death could have been avoided' - A mother on a mission to prevent child suicide

    Michelle Leigh set up the Oli Leigh trust after she lost her beloved son Oli at 16 to suicide. The Oli Leigh trust is a suicide prevention and mental wellbeing trust, granting funds to small charities that can deliver suicide prevention and wellbeing training.​Michelle is open, and honest, and I would venture to say damning on her perspective of how the system failed Oli and played a part in his taking his life by suicide. Michelle is a force to be reckoned with and you will no doubt pick up ...
