    #5 Tracy Sorensen on The Lucky Galah, Organs without a Body, and Creating New Worlds Through Fiction

    #5 Tracy Sorensen on The Lucky Galah, Organs without a Body, and Creating New Worlds Through Fiction

    What sort of personality does a spleen have? Tracy Sorensen probably knows.

    Tracy is the author of The Lucky Galah, a work of fiction longlisted for the 2019 Miles Franklin Award, brilliantly narrated by a galah named Lucky. More recently, Tracy has been working on an even more audacious task - to personify her own internal organs for her next book.

    In this episode, Tracy and I talk about some of the bigger issues that were lightly explored in The Lucky Galah, such as racism and white privilege in Australia. We also discuss the challenges and joys of writing her new book, and how her own cancer journey played a part in her writing choices.

    #3 Grace Bell on The Work of Byron Katie, Binge Eating, Divorce, and Finding Peace.

    #3 Grace Bell on The Work of Byron Katie, Binge Eating, Divorce, and Finding Peace.

    Grace Bell is a certified facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie, where she helps individuals and groups to explore their most stressful beliefs and investigate their resistance through a process known as ‘The Work’. She has a Masters in Applied Behavioural Science, has two adult children, and lives in Seattle, Washington.

    In this podcast episode, I speak to Grace about how The Work has helped reduce the stress and resistance in her own life, particularly in relation to the events of her past, which included binge eating, anxiety, divorce, and at one point, money and employment issues.

    For those unfamiliar with The Work, it is a process of inquiry created by Byron Katie where a person looks at a single, troubling thought relating to a particular moment in time, and asking themselves four questions: Is it true; can you absolutely be sure that it’s true; how do you react, what happens when you believe that thought, and; who would you be without that thought? The inquirer is  then asked to explore the thought in new ways, which Grace refers to as ‘turnarounds’.
