    8 - Setting Boundries with Janelle, Alyssa & Ruth

    Is there an ugly sweater in that gift bag? You’d better appreciate the Granny who knitted it for you!

    In our final episode at The Well this spring: Dr. Janelle McNeal, Alyssa Erickson, and, Ruth Nelson:

    Women from 19 through 53 talk about emotional boundaries: What they are, why they’re vital (and sometimes not), and how they’re so much about taking up enough space in our own lives.  And others.

    ”Even if I am not someone who imagines myself having fences up, I need to be very comfortable with the fact that other people really, really need and like to have fences.” ~Ruth

    ”I’m one who always wants to say yes...I have to tell myself at the end of the day, for my own personal energy threshold, that I need to be able to say no sometimes.  It’s not something I want to do, it’s something I have to do.” ~Alyssa

    “I wholeheartedly believe that I am responsible for my own happiness— yup I’m not counting on anyone else to make me happy, that’s my job....There are times though, when I will do something for someone else that would be to the detriment of my own happiness, because of the level of love, or respect, for that person.” ~Janelle

    “I’m really measuring the cost. What is it going to cost me to be a little uncomfortable doing this thing for you that I know you need, and if I can accept the cost of doing this thing, then I give it, no strings attached.” ~Lisa

    7 - Margaret Verble, Pulitzer Nominated Author

    At The Well with Margaret Verble, the author of Maud's Line, a 2016 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. 

    Her new novel, Cherokee America, was released in February 2020, and has been praised in the New York Times as a gift to historical fiction lovers especially as "an essential corrective to the racially tinged myths created to justify the annihilation of indigenous cultures and the theft of native lands."

    In March 2020, Cherokee America won the Spur Award for Best Traditional Western, and was shortlisted for the Reading the West Adult Fiction Award.

    Margaret, an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, lives in Lexington, KY.

    6 - Judy Heidrich and Beth Marcil

    At The Well, a continuing conversation about “callings,” with:

    Judy Heidrich in Florida, Licensed Psychotherapist and Certified Healing Touch Practitioner

    and

    Beth Marcil in Hawaii, Teaching Artist and Fine Artist

    As Oprah has helped us realize for decades: We are each born to a life purpose.

    The personal work for each of us is to decide what that is, and to get to the business of living it. But at various chapters in our lives as we grow and evolve, and as circumstances change, we don’t always know where to begin.

    Judy and Beth are companions to people ready for this type of inner work. And added to their expertise, they are specialists who help people discover where the joy in life exists, and how to make more of that too.

    4 - Jennifer Barber, United Nations delegate

    Like every one of us who dream, plan, work, sweat, work, work, work, Asian American immigants and citizens also want “for the next generation, a better life.”

    And often, their wanting and work ethic becomes a blessing for the communities in which they live. This is the very story of Jennifer Yue Barber, and her parents, who carried her home asleep after their restaurant closed nightly—with cooking burns on their hands and faces—keeping faith that their daughter would in fact have a better life while also continuing to contribute to community in her own way.

    ​Jennifer is an attorney--a Kentucky native--who served in the U.S. Department of State as Special Advisor to the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and as a United States Delegate to the 75th United Nations General Assembly where she delivered formal statements on behalf of the U.S. government, advised on foreign policy, and negotiated with other delegations to advance United States positions in the areas of human rights and humanitarian aid.

    3 - Barbara Techel, Animal Oracle

    How do we humans do it? Managing great and mundane life questions can seem like a daunting puzzle.

    Well, turns out that we’re given symbolic guideposts from nature all the time (and often a beloved dog bonus).

    Barbara Techel, a certified Animal Oracle in Wisconsin, helps us see that when we look to an animal for wisdom, we’re really calling on its essence and the archetypal patterns expressed through that animal’s nature, to reflect our own strengths and vulnerabilities.

    “What I started learning from my dogs, is that they’re mirroring what’s going on inside us, all the time.”

    Enjoy a pause (paws...) and join us for a light-hearted conversation about life’s meaningful answers.

    More about Barbara, her five books, and her one-on-one offerings, click here:

Wholesome wisdom

Voices of experience are so often voices of wisdom. Her guests are exactly that. And Lisa is skilled at setting the stage for that wisdom to come out and be shared with all of us!

Barbara Techel, Author of Frankie, the Walk 'N Roll Dog ,

Women’s Wisdom is Healing Balm for the Soul

Wow- what a way to come out the gate! I identified with so much of what Colleen shared. That pain and vulnerability piece and trauma – indeed – these two things we all share in common no matter what our trama. And the grief – yes – I found myself tearing up over that as I remember a few years ago when I finally faced my own trauma and how I was taken aback – dumbfounded, really, at the fact I never realized how I needed to grieve what I’d lost as a little girl.

Lisa, your soothing voice, plus your gentle, caring nature provides such a safe haven for your guests and for those listening in and this, I have no doubt, will be healing balm for those that need just that.

Thank you for such a raw, beautiful, and the deeply impactful wisdom shared in this, your first episode! Congratulations!
