Energy vampires are people who drain your emotional energy, and if you really have one in your life, it may feel as if they are feeding off of your life force. They are everywhere.

Episode 20: As a Black Woman with Sola Adelowo
Sometimes in life, we really can’t imagine what it’s like to be someone, unless we are in their shoes. Explicit and implicit bias exists. Racism exists, and with that, oppression. Sola Adelowo and I talk about her experiences as a black woman- in the U.S., Switzerland, and in South Africa. In a conversation that began after she had revealed to me that she was called the “N-word” by a white man, Sola talks about her own life. How can we honor all of humanity if we don’t recognize that not all are treated equally?

Episode 19- Child Sexual Abuse with Marybeth Beers
This is a topic that every parent should know about. If you are a survivor- how have you been managing your memories? Understandably – it is a very difficult topic. But it is so unfortunately common- when 1/3 girls and at least 1/5 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. And as many as 93% of victims under the age of 18 know the abuser. I speak with Marybeth Beers who, over 40 years ago, was sexually abused by her swim coach. She is here today, to talk about the impact that the experience made on her growing up and her adult life. Child sexual abuse is a significant but preventable public health problem. Although we may not be able to change the perpetrator, we can empower ourselves with knowledge and awareness- to prevent this from happening to our children, and their children.

Episode 18: Second Victim Syndrome- A Doctor's Hidden Struggle, with Dr. Berry Armstrong
The Second Victim Syndrome can occur when a health care professional makes a medical error and become traumatized by the event – manifesting psychological (such as shame, guilt, anxiety, grief, and depression), cognitive (such as burnout, secondary traumatic stress), and physical reactions that have a personal negative impact. And second victim syndrome may not necessarily be from a medical mistake, it can also be caused by a bad outcome for a patient. Dr. Berry Armstrong, MD, and I talk about second victim syndrome, the secret struggle of the medical professional as it is relatable to other fields, and how we can consider shining a light on our pain.

Episode 17: The Cautionary Tale of Ghosts with Jennifer Lyn
What if there’s an afterlife, and life is not just as we believe it to be? What if, at our death, going to the light as a spirit, is a choice? As Jennifer Lyn discusses in this interview, there are earthbound spirits who were once human. Some remain angry. Some want to be left alone or remain in the shadows. Some stay behind because they feel their life was unfinished, or perhaps they are still searching for something and are scared. As we think about the choices that we can make in our lives, perhaps healing is critical, lest we hold onto those emotions in our hearts and soul forever.

A truly fascinating discussion as we talk about true knowledge as we try to understand our inner process, learn and grow, to know the essence of God.

Abusers walk amongst us. In the U.S. - 1 out of 3 women and 1 out of 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.
