Why do we say we have zero tolerance for bullying, but adult society is rife with it and it is an epidemic among children? Because the injuries that all forms of bullying and abuse do to brains are invisible. We ignore them, fail to heal them, and they become cyclical and systemic. In today's guest, Jennifer Fraser's book The Bullied Brain, readers learn about the evidence doctors, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and neuroscientists have gathered, that shows the harm done by bullying and abuse to your brain, and how you can be empowered to protect yourself and all others. Jennifer Fraser  earned her PhD from University of Toronto in Comparative Literature. Her first book Rite of Passage in the Narratives of Dante and Joyce explores the way in which individuals transform from readers to writers of culture. Her second book Be A Good Soldier: Children's Grief in Modernist English Novels looks at pedagogical beliefs about children and the ways in which they fuel aggression and war. She has written three plays that focus on contemporary suffering: Distortion, Aristotle's Poetics, and Wakeful Sleeper. They're with the Playwright's Guild of Canada. Her third book Teaching Bullies takes lived experience with an abuse crisis and puts it into the context of psychology, psychiatry, education, law, and neuroscience. What's being discovered in neuroscientific labs across the world has the power to change how we understand our brains and lives. This empowering research infuses her latest book The Bullied Brain: Heal Your Scars and Restore Your Health. She also writes thrillers. For fun, check out Crush (a wine thriller) and Royal Dispatch which is about Queen Elizabeth II's dangerous trip to Canada in the 1950s (yes, it's fiction).
You’ve probably attended multiple personal growth seminars and read lots of books about manifesting “change” and creating success in your life. Maybe you’ve even studied specific techniques to help you release “blocks” and get yourself “unstuck”. But you still haven’t seen the results you’ve been hoping for. If you’re going to create an authentic life – a life that is yours – you’ve got to start with knowing Who You Are and what you need to do to get started living the story you were born to live.

Do you feel deeply tuned in to the feelings of others to the extent that you sometimes have a hard time distinguishing your emotions from theirs? If so, you may be a highly sensitive person or an empath (yes, there is a difference!). Empaths often describe feeling like a “sponge” that soaks up the emotions of others. Today's special guest, Signe (Sig NEE), an ordained Spiritual Counselor, certified Integrated Therapeutic Alignment (ITA) practitioner, and author of the recently published book, “The Space in Between: An Empath's Field Guide, will share how to tell if you are an empath or a highly sensitive person, and how establishing boundaries can help both. “The ability to distinguish your thoughts, feelings, and emotions from those you receive from the space around you is an important skill in public spaces,” Signe says. “Hopefully, this awareness will help you feel less entangled by the energy of others. It will also help you maintain boundaries and a sense of safety in public places.” Splitting her time between Colorado and Norway, Signe Myers Hovem is an ordained Spiritual Counselor and energy medicine practitioner, and authorteaches highly sensitive people practical exercises to successfully be vulnerable, at peace in their bodies, connect to nature and feel safe with others. She's lived on five continents, raised four children, pets, and has a soft spot for playing squash and golf. A good listener, she has a knack for sensing what is not being said.
Most parents have followed one of these paths in parenting their children: Imposed their vision or ego on the child of what that child should do –whether it’s get good grades, study for a specific career, play sports or music, attend a preferred college, etc.Tried so hard to ease their child’s path that the child never learns to fend for him or herself, feels entitled, or becomes simply unmotivatedInflicts their own fears on the child so that the child either rebels or multiplies the fearsCorrects or criticizes the child to fulfill their own needs for outer appearances and expectations and stimulates the child’s feeling of never being “enough.” Today's special guest Julie Phillips Hatch says there is another way. And that is to release your own needs and expectations and guide your child to follow his or her own path based on the child’s inner spirt, intuition and natural inclination. In her half-manifesto-and-half-practical guidebook A Parenting Revolution for Higher Evolution: Raising Resilient, Responsible, Compassionate Kids from the Inside Out, Julie makes the casethat children parented from this standout are far better capable of becoming happy, stable, fully self-realized and empathetic adults who contribute to a better and more highly evolved world—whatever path they may follow. Julie knows kids. As a mother of three, a pediatric nurse practitioner, pediatric acupuncturist, a parenting coach, and host of the “Mums on a Mission” podcast, she has devoted her life to some aspect of healing and growing capable children. Seeing the impact of so many poor parenting choices, and the suffering, bullying or unfulfilled children who result from them, Julie felt she had to speak up.
If you’re not pursuing a rewarding career, not in loving relationships, not financially secure, healthy or vital, aren’t fulfilling your purpose and passion (or don’t even know your purpose or passion), then you’re stopping yourself without even knowing it.  Today's special guest, psychic therapist and medium Vincent Genna explains the mechanisms and processes at work—your brain has unconsciously created blocks that sabotage your efforts to create a meaningful life. The bottom line is you don’t believe what you think you believe!  Vincent offers his spiritual, metaphysical, and psychological insights in his first book, The Secret That’s Holding You Backthat will be released on June 21, 2022.  Vincent has spoken at notable organizations such as the Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research Enlightenment, the Institute of Noetic Sciences, The Shift Network, Afterlife Research and Education Inc, and the International Association of Near-Death Studies. He has made numerous media appearance, is a regular guest on CBS My Carolina, and a beloved speaker at various Unity Centers, Centers for Spiritual Living, Spiritualist Churches, and spiritual centers throughout the country.
There is a place beyond even simple meditation. A place where you become aware of your awareness, where you becomeyour awareness, where you are immersed in it, where you rest in it, where you experience the totality of space, freedom, and oneness with infinity. Where your ego, your “I”-ness, your labels or your addictions just disappear. You transcend all else to just BE the awareness. This is your “mind in its natural state.” Today's special guest C von Hassett maintains that once you’ve stepped over the threshold, to experience this awakened state, it is easier and easier to attain it—and there is no going back! Being bogged down in the “conceptual mind” pales in comparison and holds no attraction. In his book Entering the Mind, a poetic, illuminating and deep-diving volume of intense higher consciousness, C von Hassett shows you how to access it—and why you must—if your purpose is to seek more than what the “conceptual mind” offers—the transactional, the material, the emotional. A writer, editor and publisher of Riot Material magazine, C von Hassett is a decades-long practitioner of Dzogchen, an ancient wisdom practice which points the individual inward toward the recognition of their own mind, the path to full awakening. He and his wife, Rachel Reid Wilkie—who is also a skilled practitioner—are committed to bringing Dzogchen to the wider world as a way to open the wellspring of love, joy, compassion, ease and peace for all of humankin
Once called “highly sensitive people"—today they are “empaths.” Empaths are highly aware of the emotional energy around them and of their own emotional needs. To be an empath is an art form—to discover how our perceptions guideand inform us, shape us, and at times limit us, requires extraordinary awareness. It also requires the skills and the strength of a lion because it takes real courage to be empathic. The good news is that there are waysto protect yourself while living with an open heart. Today's guest, Elaine Clayton, has written a book, The Way of the Empath, to show you how to use creative visualization for that purpose. It is a guide for every empath and spiritually sensitive soul to explore their abilities with exercises, affirmations, and creative journaling, as well as methods to protect themselves. Elaine Clayton is an artist and author/illustrator of several books for children and adults on intuitive intelligence. She is an intuitive reader, Reiki Master, and teacher of intuitive empathic development.

THIS SHOW IS PRE-RECORDED When it comes to issues around narcissistic abuse, do you "should" all over yourself? When you say "I have to" in these types of matters, do you truly believe that you have no choice? Are there things you believe you are "supposed to do" but really don't want to do in regards to your toxic family? Many experience these types of dillemmas when navigating the healing process of narcissistic abuse. The dreadful feeling associated with these obligations is the same whether they are put upon you or self-inflicted. And you may desperately believe that you have no choices - that you will never be free of these burdens. Today's special guest, Christiana Davidson, a licensed psychotherapist and certified hypnotherapist from London.is here to discuss this relevant topic and offer you some helpful hints on how to address these types of dilemmas. Christy is a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) with a particular interest in the effects of Narcissistic Parenting, Attachment and Co-dependency. She believes that the most important question we can ask ourselves about our lives is: why? Why do I behave and think in sometimes unhelpful ways? From here begins a fascinating journey of discovery.
When you experience deep grief, hurt, or loss, it may be interpreted as an assault on the core of your being,  your heart, today's special guest Dr. Brad says. These feelings can be so uncomfortable, so foreign and so difficult to deal with, that they often result in the formation of an energetic “wall” put up to protect the heart from further injury.  “A Heart-Wall is your body’s attempt to protect your vulnerable heart. When this energetic barrier of Trapped Emotions forms, it can keep us from feeling hurtful, negative emotions as deeply. Although this can be helpful in the short term, the problem is that it inhibits our ability to feel loving, joyful, wonderful emotions as well.” Having a Heart-Wall can make it difficult to give and receive love and can block your from fully experiencing positive emotions such as happiness, gratitude, empathy, and more. It can cause feelings of loneliness, isolation, and sadness, as well as physical health issues. Veteran holistic physician Dr. Bradley Nelson is one of the world’s foremost experts on natural methods of achieving wellness. He has trained thousands of certified practitioners worldwide to help people overcome physical and emotional discomfort by releasing their emotional baggage. His best-selling book "The Emotion Code" provides step-by-step instructions for working with the body's energy healing power.

To the outside world, today's special guest Dr. Mark Halpern was a confident and capable chiropractor with a growing practice. He hid that he was living a double life. Dr. Mark excelled at sports and whenever he could, he succeeded at physically demanding, extreme and often dangerous outdoor adventures. Yet, this was a man suffering from crippling anxiety when not caring for a patient or skiing off a cliff.  It was through the pioneering research done by the HeartMath Institute, that Mark discovered the concept of Coherence. When the heart and brain are operating coherently, people experience emotional health, more inner peace, increased physical wellbeing -- and -- most importantly -- an ability to respond to external situations, fearful or worrisome thoughts and other stimulus from a place of equanimity and emotional strength. It gives someone more choice of how to respond to any circumstance—without reacting from old patterns and rutted neuropathways. He is now sharing his methods for achieving Coherence in the groundbreaking new book and online course Coherence Revolution: Finding Flow on Your Journey to the Present Moment.   Dr. Mark Halpern is a Chiropractor, Author, Lecturer and Certified HeartMath Practitioner. He is also certified in additional healing modalities; Psych-k and Ho’oponopono. In both his personal and professional life, Dr. Mark has been drawn to methods that promote optimal health and healing of the brain, body and spirit.
