    Accepting Communication

    Accepting Communication

    We all have had (or have) those people in our lives that frustrate us because of how they communicate....or how we think they don't communicate. We will blame them for the miscommunication, we create conflict around the miscommunication or lack of communication, and we exhaust ourselves trying to find ways to create "healthier" forms of communication with this person or people.

    Does the struggle help? Does the conflict help? Does focusing on fixing them or you help?

    Could acceptance help?

    In this episode, Erez Shek explores the idea of acceptance surrounding communication with others. Setting aside the labels of "communication styles" and the everchanging fixes to create "healthy communication" with others- can we find acceptance of the other and ourselves?

    Patrick Hill: Empowering Loss

    Patrick Hill: Empowering Loss

    We all face different kinds of loss in our lives, and we all go through hard times. It is an undeniable reality. Yet, loss and grief are not things we were taught to have a healthy relationship with even though we can and we should.

    In today’s episode, Erez is joined by Patrick Hill. Patrick is a transformational business and personal coach, focused on helping and supporting people through the harder times in life. After 21 years in recovery from drug addiction and the loss of his mother, Patrick realized that most of the significant growth periods in his life have been born from difficult times. Realizing this, he wanted to create a safe space free of judgements for clients to look beyond fear and shame....in their now.

    Reframe: Peace, Forgiveness & Healing

    Reframe: Peace, Forgiveness & Healing

    If you are like me, there are some very distinct images that pop up when I think of peace, forgiveness and healing. Cinematic images that seem far away and so hard to reach.
    What if we reframe those images? What if we reframe the concepts we have created around peace, forgiveness and healing?

    Mindset Check: 2021

    Mindset Check: 2021

    2020 has been exhausting right? So, it might feel natural to look at 2021 as the answer to all our problems.
    Is that helpful though?
    Is it helpful for us to demonize the year 2020, and romanticize the year 2021?

    Let’s do a quick mindset check.

    Greg Bodin LMFT: Attachment Theory 101

    Greg Bodin LMFT: Attachment Theory 101

    Early childhood experiences shape how we feel in relationships and impact us through our whole life. How our needs are or aren’t met is what ultimately forms our attachment style later on in life.

    Psychotherapist Greg Bodin checked in with Erez to help us better understand attachment theory, attachment styles, and how our attachment styles influence our relationships.

    You can read more about Attachment Styles (and a lot of great other topics) when you visit Greg’s blog:

Unbelievable

Unbelievable mind and soul.

MibbyMib ,

Testimony matters

This cast is a screaming, blasting, banging, example as to home we mitigate stigma, maximize health seeking behaviors, and normalize the human experience of having a psychology. It’s self-aware, gritty, and beyond empathic and empowering. My friend, thank you for this. I will distribute this far and wide.

Watercooler25 ,

Great show!

I love the earthy mental health interviews and the takeaways from the podcast. I highly recommended 🙂
