Dr. Stan Steindl is a Clinical Psychologist in private practice at Psychology Consultants Pty Ltd and an Adjunct Associate Professor at the School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. He is also co-director of the UQ Compassionate Mind Research Group. Stan’s research interests are in the areas of motivation, behaviour change, compassion and compassion-based interventions, and especially the role of cultivating compassion and self-compassion in the context of trauma, shame, self-criticism and clinical disorders, as well as promoting psychological well-being. In this episode, Stan and I discuss the healing and transformative power of compassion. We discuss cultivating a compassionate mind and working towards living a more balanced, kind, and peaceful life. According to the Compassion-Focused Therapy psychological model, humans have at least three emotional regulation systems. (1) A threat and self-protection system that, when activated, manifests emotionally in the form of anger, disgust, fear, anxiety, and shame. (2) A drive and excitement system that motivates people to find and acquire food, mates, resources and status. (3) A soothing and social-safety system which regulates our feelings of contentment, peacefulness, and safety.  If there is an imbalance between these three emotional regulation systems, mental distress and suffering can arise. People who are highly self-critical and self-shaming may not have had enough stimulation of the soothing system or too much activation of the threat system. This imbalance may lead people to find it difficult to feel and express kindness towards themselves. They may be highly sensitive to criticism or rejection, whether real or perceived and internalize that disapproval. The goal of CFT is to correct this imbalance in the emotion regulation systems.   Check Out Stan’s YouTube Channel    Get a copy of Stan’s latest book, The Gifts of Compassion: How to Understand and Overcome Suffering   More of Stan:  🙏🏽 Website 🙏🏽 YouTube Channel 🙏🏽 Instagram: @dr_stan_steindl 🙏🏽 Facebook: DrStanSteindl 🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Dr Stan Steindl   More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast   🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify   Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/    🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

Steven C. Hayes is a Nevada Foundation Professor of Psychology in the Behavior Analysis program at the University of Nevada. An author of 47 books and nearly 670 scientific articles, his career has focused on an analysis of the nature of human language and cognition and the application of this to the understanding and alleviation of human suffering. He is the developer of Relational Frame Theory, an account of human higher cognition, and has guided its extension to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a popular evidence-based form of psychotherapy that uses mindfulness, acceptance, and values-based methods. He is a co-developer of Process-Based Therapy (PBT), a new approach to evidence-based therapies more generally. In this episode, Steven and Shane discuss the nature of human consciousness, our experience of it, and how an understanding of it connects us to something much greater. Steven’s life work has been dedicated, at least in part, to understanding human psychology. Consciousness is an essential feature of our life - it is that by which, and from which, we experience everything. Self-consciousness is a phenomenon which appears to be uniquely human (as far as we know). Our knowledge of our own consciousness places us in a remarkable position to explore, question, and try to understand it. Furthermore, we discuss the relationship between our understanding of human psychology, consciousness, and suffering. How can we work to alleviate suffering, both in our own lives and in those of other people is a fundamental question of our time.  Get a copy of A Liberated Mind: How to Pivot Toward What Matters   More of Steven: 🙏🏽 Website 🙏🏽 Steven’s Research 🙏🏽 Wikipedia   More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast   🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/    🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!   Share this episode with someone who might enjoy it!   #podcast #psychology #consciousness #experience #cognition #act #acceptanceandcommitmenttherapy #insight #evolution #suffering #liberated #mind #self #flourishing 
Dr. Mikolaj Raszek is the founder and managing director of Merogenomics: a Canadian biotechnology company dedicated to enhancing everyone’s access to genomic sequencing education and technologies. Merogenomics offers access to clinical DNA testing for personalized health information: screening for predispositions, undiagnosed diseases, cancer profiling and pregnancy fetal testing.   In this episode, Mikolaj and Shane discuss a variety of topics including: the explanatory power of genome sequencing, gene therapy, epigenetics, genetic evolution and biodiversity, and the relationship between our genes and our health.    Human genome sequencing provides insight into one's own biology. The most promising aspect of genome sequencing is the medical value it can give. This is a brand-new technology that is still largely unavailable to the general population but has the potential to transform the way medical science approaches the understanding and treatment of disease and therapeutic intervention. Genome sequencing offers the possibility of tailor-made solutions for everyone.    Check Out the Merogenomics YouTube Page for videos on genetics,  DNA sequencing, and COVID-19 mRNA vaccine science updates!    Start your DNA testing journey   More of Dr. Raszek and Merogenomics:  🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Dr. Mikolaj Raszek 🙏🏽 Merogenomics Website 🙏🏽 Facebook: @Merogenomics 🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Merogenomics 🙏🏽 Twitter: @Merogenomics   More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast   🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify   Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/    🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!   Share this episode with someone who might enjoy it!   #podcast #genetics #DNA #genomesequencing #health #biochemistry #gene #science #technology #biotechnology #cancerscreening #genepanel #epigenetics #genetherapy #cloning #chromosomes #geneticbiodiversity   Disclaimer: The information and materials offered here or in any correspondence originating from this site, are intended for educational purposes only.

John Moore is a shamanic practitioner and teacher who works with spiritually conscious professionals to live fuller, happier lives, in touch with their true purpose. After two decades of working in the technology sector, John turned to humankind's oldest spiritual practice, shamanism, to heal himself.   “I am a guide, not a guru. I am just here to show you how powerful, strong, whole, and complete you are as a spark of divine light.” - John Moore   A lifetime spiritual seeker, John has practiced many spiritual and healing modalities including Tantric Buddhism, reiki, mindfulness meditation, Qigong, and Shamanism.   John is an accomplished martial artist with a 3rd-degree black belt in ketsugo jujutsu. From early on, John faced many adversities growing up due to his numerous birth defects. He began practicing martial arts as a way to help overcome the physical limitations he faced and managed to achieve this rank despite these challenges.   In his early 40's, John sought help and was diagnosed with PTSD. Told by doctors and therapists that there was no cure, John was told that his only hope was to try to manage his symptoms with medication.   John refused to accept that and sought to heal himself. Finding a home with shamanism, John embarked on years of training, including a year-long apprenticeship, special training in soul retrieval, two years of advanced initiations, and two years of advanced teacher training. John has been symptom-free for years now.    Along the way, many people have come to John for healing, divination, and soul retrieval work. John especially loves to help those with adverse childhood experiences and trauma experience a new sense of wholeness and power.   John’s passion for teaching comes through in his lifelong quest to help people recognize, embrace, and embody their own power.   Download John’s Shaman World App   Check Out John Moore’s Speaking Spirit Podcast   Moe of John:  🙏🏽 Maine Shaman Website 🙏🏽 Facebook: John Moore Author 🙏🏽 Instagram: @JohnMooreAuthor 🙏🏽 YouTube: Shaman’s Tent   More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast   🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify   Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/    🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!   Share this episode with someone who might enjoy it!   #podcast #shaman #spirit #ritual #shamanism #initiation #healing #intuition #connection #disconnected #teacher #happiness #spiritualgifts #alteredstate #consciousness #divine #intervention #traditional #animism #archetype #awakening
Deborah Lukovich holds a PhD in Depth Psychology which focuses on understanding the nature of the unconscious. She is a coach, author, blogger, and podcaster where she offers insights and teachings to help people explore the deeper meaning of life through stories, conversation, and education.    “I'm passionate about inspiring people to find deeper meaning in ordinary life events by learning the language of the unconscious. Science affirms that unconscious forces direct up to 95% of who we are - the decisions we make, emotional responses, personality quirks, and even to whom we're attracted. And that's just looking at the personal unconscious.  So, if you're stuck, it's not your mind that holds the solution, rather the key is decoding messages communicated through your unconscious by an inner authority, what you could call Soul, Self, God, or creative intelligence. Once the messages are decoded, the new insight, attitude, or behavior is the doorway that leads to the other side.”    In this episode, Deborah and I discuss the nature of our relationship with the unconscious parts of ourselves. The relationship between the conscious and unconscious mind is constantly evolving and changing as we develop and discover/uncover different parts of our selves. The exploration of our inner world is a vital part of our evolution, both as individuals and as a species.    Our unconscious mind is always communicating with our conscious minds, but it is often through ‘indirect’ modes of communication - e.g., dreams, fantasies, interests, interpretations, desires etc. Much of who we take ourselves to be is influenced/determined by our unconscious. Using a Jungian-based framework for self-reflection, we can begin to understand ourselves and our world at a much deeper level. Learning why we think, feel, and act the way we do, healing wounds, reconnecting with spirituality, and discovering our inner wisdom is all part of the journey.    Get a copy of Deborah’s latest book:  Your Soul is Talking.

Radavie Riom is Spiritual Teacher, Shaman, and Wounded Child Healer. She is devoted to serving the Divine Spirit that lies within everything. Through personal experiences of healing childhood wounds, an intuitive nature, plant medicine, and spiritual guidance, Radavie now lives to help others heal from their past wounds and traumas, end their sufferings, and awaken to their true selves - the divine spark within.  Radavie was deeply affected by her childhood traumas.  Although she was one of nine children, she felt singled out by her mother who continually targeted her with judgment, blame, and threats. She was even accused by her mother for her difficult child birth.  While growing up, her mother would threaten to sell Radavie in the market.  There was also physical abuse.  She withdrew from her family spending most of her early years alone. Being a highly sensitive person, along with extrasensory perception, allowed Radavie to see and feel things that others could not.  In her sadness she would comfort herself by staying alone and living in her world of contemplation. She continued asking, “Why was I born?” “What is the meaning of life?” She desperately wanted to understand and know God.  She held the thought of God so deeply that it was the ribbon of light that weaved through the tapestry of her life. Radavie entered the world of business and started two successful enterprises. Yet, this was not enough to fill her deep yearning for God. So she walked away from the business world to follow and fulfill her deep and mysterious calling to come home to Spirit. A breakthrough came when she was in her late thirties. In the midst of a deep and painful emotional relationship, the wounded little girl whom she rejected all those years suddenly appeared before her.  She had no choice but to face her.  In spite of the desire to continue being separate, she now had to release the wounded past and experience the emotions held by the little girl. That was her path to freedom and completely shifted her self-perception. In that instant a veil lifted and she was Spiritually Awakened: she experienced that her essential nature was never the wounded child, and that the doubts and fears that she held as her identity, were never who she was. Spirit refers to Radavie as “Mother to the Wounded Children.” Her desire is to serve others who are ready to free themselves from haunting and stuck memories. Radavie serves from her soul’s contract by assisting her clients in the way she healed her own wounds. Healing the adult starts with healing the child.  As a highly sensitive person, her intuition and devotion, coupled with Divine Guidance, are the life spring from which she serves clients to live a more awakened life. For 30 years Radavie has served thousands to release the veils of who they are not.  From her own experience she has realized that our tender hearts cannot experience true peace until the True Self, the Divine Spark that we are, is unveiled. Radavie’s search for God has ended.  She now sees God in the mirror … the same mirror that reflects you.  Many faces, One Spirit. “It is our destiny to awaken to True Self, the Divine Sparks that we are, and live in freedom and harmony from the spaciousness of Inner Peace.” - Radavie More of Radavie: 🙏🏽 Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Radavie Riom   More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify ♖ Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/  🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

Dr. Candice, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Spiritual Yogi, Speaker, Author, Social Marketer, and a huge advocate for people having the ability to reach their spiritual potential. She understands the trials and tribulations related to the struggle of choosing and gaining freedom from the ego (mind, body, pain body, and collective unconscious). She loves having deep conversations and contemplating the bigger questions such as life and death, overcoming illusions. She also loves helping those who are lost and those who are seeking to find their way.   She is a co-author of Business, Life and Universe Vol. 2 and has launched a successful 6 week program called  "Energized You", that helps people improve their lifestyle, gain energy and detox. Dr. Candice is also the creator of the Whole Body Visionaries Facebook Group. Creating a community for people that value Holistic Care. She knows that health is wealth, and when health suffers so do many other areas of life.  In this episode, Candice and I discuss a variety of topics relating to holistic medicine and its integration with spirituality and energy work. Naturopathic work integrates the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual in order to view the person and their issue within the full scope of their lives. Candice operates from the assumption that our bodies are natural healers. That is, the human body has an innate ability to heal from most conditions/symptoms. By investigating the causal factors, one is able to discover why the condition has arisen in order to treat it appropriately. One of the central tenets of Naturopathy is that if the body is given the right tools, it will be able to heal and restore balance within.  Candice shares that there are natural relationships between physical symptoms and mental/emotional issues. In general, we are only consciously aware of a small amount of the workings of the body; however, there are many ways in which the body (unconsciously) communicates distress. By looking into the symptomatology and personal history, we can begin to gain a fuller understanding of what is going on inside a person.  It is also important to listen to what is going on behind the words that a person speaks. Communication is far deeper than words alone, and if we can attune ourselves to the other person (and know what we’re looking/listening for), we can start to see what’s going on at a deeper level within the person.  More of Candice:  🙏🏽 "Energize You" Program  🙏🏽 Facebook Page: Dr Candice Staniek  🙏🏽 Facebook Group: Whole Body Visionaries    🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Dr Candice Staniek    🙏🏽 Instagram: @DrCandiceStaniek   🙏🏽 Fatigue Relief Program  More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts  Spotify   ♖ Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/ 🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

William Allen is an author with a writer’s heart and researcher’s mind. After getting a degree in Psychology with an eye on doing psychology research, he recalibrated for a career in Information Technology. He found himself in a thirty-year career as an Information Technology manager at Wells Fargo who enjoyed managing highly intelligent, often difficult staff, many of whom were highly sensitive. He was awarded a prestigious Corporate Management Excellence award for his empathetic management style. He retired early from his corporate job to found his Hypno-coaching and neurofeedback brain training business, BrainPilots, in Bend, Oregon. While in Bend, he co-organized the area’s first Introvert/Highly Sensitive Person discussion group. In late 2016, he began his blog, The Sensitive Man, about his experiences as a highly sensitive man. The blog became the genesis of his book, Confessions of a Sensitive Man. He feels that HSP males need to take their keen insights and intuition and make them public. He would like to shed more light on highly sensitive males and the much-needed role they need to take in our society. In this episode, Bill and I discuss the evolution and function of the Highly Sensitive Personality Trait. A highly sensitive person (HSP) is a term used to describe the group of people who process information deeply - this includes emotions, thoughts and sensory stimuli. Like any personality trait, there are both advantages and disadvantages and exists as a spectrum. High sensitivity is often associated with creativity, empathy, and insight but also tends to mean they are more prone to being overwhelmed by stressors and sensory input. Being an HSP isn’t a bad thing, and William is on a mission to spread the word and help educate people.  As Bill explains, HSPs are often misunderstood in our modern times, and HSPs often feel undervalued, overlooked, or rejected by society - this can lead to feelings of aloneness, estrangement, and needing to ‘hide’ their true selves. This tends to be especially true of highly sensitive men who do not conform to normative standards of ‘ideal’ masculinity. William wants to change the way we think of what it means to be a man in today’s world. He argues that we should start to re-examine the values we attribute to ideal men, and open the conversation to include the strengths of sensitivity, intuition, and insight.  Get a copy of William’s Books: Confessions of a Sensitive Man: An Unconventional Defense of Sensitive Men  On Being a Sensitive Man: Success Strategies for Harnessing Your Highly Sensing Nature  More of William: 🙏🏽 Website: The Sensitive Man 🙏🏽 Twitter: @TheSensitiveMa1 🙏🏽 Facebook: The Sensitive Man More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify ♖ Produced by: Jason Shapiro  https://shapirocreations.com/ 🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

Marga Laube has been a counseling astrologer for over twenty years, providing navigation guidance for "Agents of Evolution," blending astrology with the wisdom of multiple animist and eco-whispered sources. As an author, educator, and expressive storyteller, Marga aims to catalyze our collective evolution. Marga holds advanced certifications with the Council of Vedic Astrology, and her work is informed by formal training in collective trauma healing, psychological shadow work, racial trauma healing, systemic constellation facilitation, ancestral medicine, and animist psychology. In this episode, Marga and I discuss how we might approach understanding collective evolution using the frameworks of animist psychology and astrology. We discuss the archetypal evolutionary journeys, and how understanding our own pathway can provide insight into managing change. By exploring the evolutionary impulse within us, we can begin to understand how these impulses seek expression through the contents and manifestations of our lives. Furthermore, by examining the spiritual essence of ourselves and the universe, we begin to gain a broader appreciation and love for all things in life. Ultimately, we must uncover and form a deep and true connection to our true selves - our essence; and, by transforming ourselves we can transform the world.  Get a copy of Marga’s Book AGENTS of EVOLUTION: An Astrological Guide for Transformative Times More of Marga:  🙏🏽 Website 🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Marga Laube  🙏🏽 Instagram: @margalaube_evolution  🙏🏽 YouTube: Marga Laube Evolution  More of Shane:  🙏🏽 Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts Spotify 🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

Ann Hince is an author, healer, and public speaker.  In this episode, Ann and I discuss the power of focused attention. Specifically, the healing power of focusing your attention on your inner body. Most of us have spent our lives repressing a variety of thoughts and emotions that we believe are too painful to deal with. These thoughts and emotions, however, do not simply go away; instead, they are often stored in various parts of our body - often the parts that are closely associated with the particular event. These storages build up over time and begin to affect our everyday mood and function. While we are mostly not conscious of their influence, these storages do affect how we experience and interact with the world. By spending time and energy working on releasing these stored tensions, we can begin a process of healing and revitalization. This process elicits extraordinary changes in both your mental and physical wellbeing.  Ann walks us through how she uses insight (i.e., interoceptive awareness) and the EFT/Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) methods to uncover and release physical tension, trapped memories and stored emotions. Ann’s remarkable journey has led her to heal from a lifetime of trauma and emotional and physical tension, and to inspire and encourage others to do the same through sharing the techniques she uses on a daily basis.  The second element of this discussion revolves around how we relate to the world, and how what we feel affects what we experience. Ann explains that each person is constantly emitting a signal/vibration - a message to the universe that says “This is the way I am feeling now, please give me more reasons to feel this way”. To change what we are experiencing in life,  we need to change the signal we are emitting, and to do this requires us to release the stored tension that is subconsciously affecting our signal.  The eventual goal of these awareness practices is to achieve inner peace, a quietened mind, and a persisting sense of wellbeing and connectedness. When we are able to release the things holding us back, we are free to live a more fulfilling, peaceful life that is filled with joy, harmony, and light.  Get a copy of Ann’s Book, A Pathway To Insight: Re-Capture Your Childhood Buzz  More of Ann: Website: https://annhince.com/   YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTc4hb7ZKvih1LlRHK0cUjg  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Ann-Hince-1495515800567706/   More of Shane:  🙏 Underground Antics Website 🙏 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy 🙏 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/underground-antics-with-shane-pokroy/id1516717778    Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/001s4TUyZIrHhlH3jp0169    🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

David Gomes is a Mindfulness teacher, coach and mentor. He offers a thoughtful effective coaching approach for living an impactful, thoughtful & productive life. The wisdom of mindfulness transformed into practical formulas for daily living. In this Episode, David and I discuss the intricacies of mindful-based coaching. For David, the intersection of mindfulness and modern coaching offers people the best approach to “transform ancient wisdom into practical formulas for living well”. David’s unique approach integrates the transformative power of mindfulness with a modern coaching program to help people find a way of life that promotes well-being, productivity, and purpose. For many of us it is difficult to rise above the grind, to find a way to live a more fulfilling life, and to create an overall sense of wellness in life. David’s methodology is designed to inspire you to grow, keep moving forwards and purposefully create a better existence.  “Mindfulness is change on the inside.  It’s reflective. Coaching is change on the outside. It’s action.” - David Frank Gomes Through a guided discovery of one’s values, goals, skills, and dreams, David works to inspire, mentor, and support you on your journey to break through patterns that are holding you back into a world of fulfillment.  “All of us are on a treasure hunt to find happiness. Some are obvious, like money, a job we enjoy, healthy relationships and getting what we want. Some are less obvious, like purpose, meaning and a sense of fulfillment and inner peace. We need a balance of both if we want to experience a joyful, significant life.” - David Frank Gomes More of David:  🙏🏽   Website 🙏🏽   Facebook: @DavidFrankGomes 🙏🏽   Instagram: @dfgcoaching 🙏🏽 LinkedIn: David Frank Gomes More of Shane:  🙏🏽  Underground Antics Website   🙏🏽  LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏🏽   Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏🏽 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/underground-antics-with-shane-pokroy/id1516717778    Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/001s4TUyZIrHhlH3jp0169    Subscribe for more! https://linktr.ee/shanepokroy ​   🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

Deborah Hawkins started blogging on mindfulness and gratitude as a way to work herself out of depression. She has posted reflections on everyday things or experiences that lift her mood on nosmallthing.net almost every week since 2010. She has developed an “intentional” approach to a gratitude practice that is empowering, authentic, and fun. Through her blog. books, and classes, she provides tools people can employ to lead happier lives. In this episode, Deb and I discuss the power of intentional gratitude, how it helped her out of dark times, and how she uses these techniques to help other people who are also suffering. Gratitude is one of the most powerful tools one can use to boost mood, raise levels of general life satisfaction, and overall promote a healthier life. Gratitude helps us connect with powerful positive emotions such as love, happiness, joy, and appreciation - all of which are essential components of a joyful life. Gratitude also helps us connect with the universe outside of ourselves - when we are grateful, we connect with each other, with nature, and with life itself.  Taking time out of your day to practice gratitude, and it is best when we make it into a regular practice, can be a powerful tool of transformation. Deb shares with us that it is often best to start off with things that might be considered ‘small’, but actually are the foundation for a much deeper practice.  By taking the time to practice mindful gratitude, we can begin to transform the way we think and therefore the way we see the world. Our minds are powerful tools that shape our perceived reality according to our belief systems. By intentionally changing our default mode of interpretation to one of gratitude, we can change our overall sense of being in the world to one of joy, appreciation, and love. Although it can be a gradual process, it is a powerful transformative tool.    Sign Up for one of Deb’s Zoom Classes: https://nosmallthing.net/main/calendar/   Get 20% off when using promo code Goodlife2022 when registering at Eventbrite    More of Deb: 🙏 No Small Thing Website  🙏 Facebook: @NoSmallThingMindfulMeditations     🙏 Instagram: @nosmallthingdeborahh 🙏 LinkedIn: Deborah Hawkins  🙏 Linktree: GratefulDeb   More of Shane:  🙏 Underground Antics Website   🙏 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/underground-antics-with-shane-pokroy/id1516717778    Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/001s4TUyZIrHhlH3jp0169    Subscribe for more!  🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

Dr. Catherine Uram, MD is an integrative medicine specialist, Reiki Master, and Spiritual Healer. Catherine Uram, MD helps you transform with spiritual energy, so you can contribute to a peaceful evolution of humanity. She practiced as a highly experienced physician in conventional + alternative modalities, has been engaged with sacred healing practices from around the globe, and now works where she can be of the deepest service— with the underlying spiritual energy of life, assisting your growth + transformation. In this episode, Catherine and I discuss her journey and experience of integrating modern medicine with traditional/ancient forms of energy healing. Although the final goal of modern medicine and energy healing is the same, i.e. to relieve distressing symptoms and promote health and vitality, the methods are very different but can actually be integrated. Whether a patient goes to see a physician or an energy healer, whatever the reason for the consultation, the desired goal is the same - to heal themselves and feel better.  “We walk as one, listening to the beating heart, allowing the unconscious to be conscious, and life to stream through us, evolving peacefully for the sake of all there is.” - Dr Catherine Uram. Focusing on the heart and its power, we learn how simple heart-centered meditation can rapidly transform the body and promote healing. Catherine explains how important well-balanced heart-energy is to overall health and vitality. Attuning to your heart has been known to traditional healers for thousands of years, and modern medicine is, in many ways, now starting to realize this. The body has a phenomenal self-healing ability, and we can have access to this healing if we connect/attune with our heart energy. Beyond the physical, the spiritual benefits of a balanced heart are limitless. Attuning to your heart allows us to connect with Universal Love, the source energy of the whole universe, in order to live happily, grow deeply, and transform perfectly.  💛 Access the Heart Meditation to begin: https://catherineurammd.com/heart-frequency  More of Catherine: 🙏 Website   🙏 Instagram: @catherineurammd    🙏 YouTube: Universal Love    🙏 Facebook: @CatherineUramMD      More of Shane:  🙏 Underground Antics Website   🙏 LinkedIn: Shane Pokroy   🙏 Instagram: @shanepokroy 🙏 Facebook: @UndergroundAnticsPodcast 🎧 Listen and subscribe to Underground Antics on your favourite podcast platform  Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/underground-antics-with-shane-pokroy/id1516717778    Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/001s4TUyZIrHhlH3jp0169    Subscribe for more! https://linktr.ee/shanepokroy ​   🙏🏽 Thanks for tuning in!

During that time, she achieved a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University and a Masters of Biomedical Engineering from Cornell University.  At the end of 2017, she started a new life in Canada as a new immigrant from Vietnam.

Living her life purpose, Vi helps others to find their path of freedom to live their authentic selves because only then can we all be living a fulfilled life of happiness. She believes that, as we find our own inner freedom, that is when the world can be free and liberate itself to evolve to a better place in the cosmos.  When she’s not planning her next adventure, you can find her savoring life’s simple pleasures with her beloved dog Marco. In this episode, Vi and I discuss her journey of finding her happiness and purpose in travelling the world in her van and living through the process of inner alchemy. Using the ancient art and philosophy of alchemy, Vi takes us on her journey to freedom and happiness. Vi shares her story of being born and raised in Vietnam, moving to the US as a student and worker, losing her job, returning home to Vietnam, rekindling her passion for travelling, and finally arriving in Canada to start her dream of living a life of travel, nature, and inspiration.  Get a Copy of Vi’s Book:  Living Through Alchemy: A transformational journey to freedom “Discover a powerful memoir about hope, change, faith, and the fascinating secrets of alchemy.
