    Episode 7 — Rousing Sleeping Dogs

    Episode 7 — Rousing Sleeping Dogs

    In this episode Carol S. Hyman invites us to question some conventional wisdom that allows us to avoid dealing with things that make us uncomfortable. If, as trauma theory suggests, Adverse Childhood Experiences often lead to us disconnecting from ourselves, mindfulness opens up the possibility of reconnecting. To explore how this can help us heal, Carol offers an exercise using memory and bodily sensation to unpack our traumatic baggage.

    Episode 6 — Changing Aggression into Accountability

    Episode 6 — Changing Aggression into Accountability

    In this episode Carol S. Hyman asks us to question our habitual response to those we don't agree with. Whenever we ask ourselves, "How could anyone possibly believe that?" instead of filling in the blank with a story about someone's stupidity or cruelty, we might try getting really, genuinely curious. To get some practice at doing this, Carol offers an exercise using memory and imagination to become agents of change.

    Episode 5 — From "I'm Right" to Insight

    Episode 5 — From "I'm Right" to Insight

    In this episode, Carol S. Hyman explores how we can kick our addiction to believing everything we think. This is an essential step in making friends with our minds, which ultimately influences how we treat others. If we practice this, we can evolve from having a fixed mind to an open one. This work begins by learning to recognize, and be skeptical, when we feel very certain that we are right.

    Episode 4 — Lightening the Load

    This episode features an excerpt from the newly available audiobook version of Carol S. Hyman's book Meeting Your Mind. The section featured here deals with the baggage all human beings carry. Thought patterns and emotions so deeply ingrained we don't recognize them as distinct from ourselves. But if we take the time to unpack—to get to know our baggage—we can learn to recognize our burden for what it is, and maybe even lighten the load.

    Episode 3 — Deep Dive Detox

    Episode 3 — Deep Dive Detox

    What do we mean when we say, "the mood of the whole room shifted"? In this episode Carol S. Hyman discusses how we human beings can dig into a deeper level of experience — Jung called it the Collective Unconscious — and work with our own minds to begin to filter out negative patterns of behavior and energy that trouble our species. To help with this, she offers some basic mindfulness practice instruction, which is the key to both gaining insight into our own tendencies and connecting with the wakeful presence that will allow us to detoxify them.
