229 “The Bullied Brain” with Jennifer Fraser

Today my guest is JenniferFraser, best-selling author and award-winning educator. Her online courses and workshops provide dynamic lessons in the impact neuroscience has on personal development and culture change. Her previous book, Teaching Bullies: Zero Tolerance on the Court or in the Classroom, explores what happens when the bully is a teacher or coach. Her new book, The Bullied Brain: Heal Your Scars and Restore Your Health, delves into how bullying affects the brain and how the brain can heal. Learn more at bulliedbrain.com

I’ve been glued to this book which is rich with information about bully culture, the damage it causes our brains, and what we can do about it. It’s a sad reality that our culture is so seeped in bullying and abuse — from children’s playgrounds to the upper echelons of leadership — that we’ve come to normalize the behavior and overlook the wreckage. This bullying paradigm has parents, teachers and coaches believing they must be tough to the point of emotional abuse in order for children to acquire the grit and resilience needed to attain excellence in a competitive world. The research shows however that the bullied brain correlates with failure to perform, substance abuse, aggressive behavior, chronic disease and mental illness.

Some of the topics we get into are the bullying paradigm, toxic masculinity vs. toxic stress, the “invisible” brain damage cause by bullying and toxic stress, open vs. fixed mindsets, building resilience, and in honor of Juneteenth I share some personal thoughts on how slavery was an extreme form of bullying and how we should consider what we’ve learned from Jennifer when understanding how to heal from it’s legacy.

228 “Spirituality and Politics and the Second Amendment” with Marielena Ferrer

It’s the second Monday of the month and you know what that means, “Spirituality and Politics” with Marielena Ferrer. She’s joining us from Scotland today so we hear a bit about her trip and some of what she’s observing related to the culture of spirituality and politics on the island of Lewis and Harris. Then we dig into the conversations we’ve been having and the thoughts we’ve been thinking related to the 2nd Amendment and gun regulations, and of course we end with a little moon talk considering the alignment of the Full Strawberry Supermoon. You can read the whole report referenced here.

227 “Holistic Health” with Cornelia Wathen, Diana Seiler and Alannah Henneberry

Today I get to speak with three members of the Holistic Health Community,Cornelia Wathen, Diana Seiler, and Alannah Henneberry.

Since 2012 HHC has offered Community Holistic Healthcare days at the Marbletown Community Center, 3564 Main Street, Stone Ridge (Route 209), on the third Tuesday of each month, from [4:00][8:00] PM. Then in March 2020 they shifted to offer virtual sessions during the last week of each month. Now that they are back to in person, they continue this virtual offering an ongoing event for out-of-town practitioners, for practitioners whose modalities are not appropriate for shared space (such as sound healing) and for practitioners who prefer virtual work.

During these events practitioners offer a wide range of services including acupuncture, reflexology, chiropractic, massage, Brennan Healing Science, Reiki, OrthoBionomy, NeurOptimal, Biophonton Therapy, One Light Healing Touch, Attunement, Reconnective Healing, Matrix Energetics, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Hypnotherapy, The Emotion Code, Spacious Heart Guidance, Psycho-Spiritual Counseling, Craniosacral Therapy, and much more!

Additionally, they offer a variety of special events, including speakers and workshops related to expanding consciousness and exploring holistic health, and in collaboration with the Rosendale Theatre Collective, they co-sponsor the screening of films related to health and well-being. See their Film Archive  for the full scope of programming.

The Holistic Health Community operates under the principle of Sacred Reciprocity/Paying it Forward. So, though there is no charge for services, they encourage sacred reciprocity by giving a donation, by doing volunteer work or by an act of loving kindness for someone in need. No one is turned away.

A little about my guests before we get into the conversation:

Cornelia Wathen regularly offers Brennan Healing Science and Emotion Code work at HHC events. She is one of the founders of The Holistic Health Community, and coordinates the Community Holistic Healthcare Days and Virtual Holistic Healthcare Weeks.

Diana Seiler is a licensed Thai Massage practitioner and instructor and has been serving with the Holistic Health Community for several years, most recently overseeing their Regenerative Farming: Soil to Soul Program.

And finally, Alannah Henneberry is an energy worker and certified Shamanic Reiki Healing Master. She has joined their mission to help advance the Holistic Health Community’s Holistic Healthcare to the People! initiative, aiming to make holistic healthcare accessible to locally underserved communities through their Outreach Program.
