Do we know how to be Human?
After the last post on death and dying - I felt there was an important question to ask - do we know how to live?! Let's be honest, there are handbooks for everything and most of them tell us we are have much to learn, so when Cynthia Hickman a psychotherapist wrote a 'Handbook for Being Human' I was intrigued. My interview with Cynthia talks to how we grow up in this world without buying into the fear factor that is fed to us left, right, centre, up and down! Towards the end of the interview Cynthia shares how important we all are to the culture of our world. I so love her call for us all to be part of the change we want to see in the world - to change the culture of being human from the ground up. I see bulbs are sprouting already...

Death And Dying
Are we ready to have a 'maturing' conversation about death and dying that considers the concept of loss and grief and how everyone's experience does not need to be the same? Jasmine, Deborah and Anita offer different lived experiences with one common theme - they did not own the person who passed - no matter the role they played in their lives and therefore their experience of grief was not as 'expected'.

Helen - What you put in is what you get out
Helen offers an insight into the generation for whom the internet has been their 'normal'. Her parents introduced her to online dating and yet it was certainly not all smooth sailing.

Marika - This is who I am
Let me introduce you to Marika, a woman who brings a steadiness to the discussion about online dating, she normalises the practicals of talking to people and when that moment arrives to be exclusive and commit to seeing where the relationship might go.

Susan Sharing All Your Gorgeousness
Susan who had never done anything like this before, "it was like starting all over again”. She offers her experience as an older person and takes some of the mystery out of it. Clearly, Susan would encourage us all to have a go at something new because even though something isn’t quite right and might not continue, there is still lots of opportunity to grow for all involved. Most importantly - what is your 'WHY', for Susan it was simple, you can’t not share all your gorgeousness with someone else.

Shelley - Intergrity Is A Must
Meet Shelley who has a slightly different perspective to dating sites. She has learnt a lot about herself, but also about the games, the manipulation and the resulting hurts that is rife within the online dating world. If we don't want to play the games it may be worth remembering that each swipe left or right is a person and that if you are calling not to be used, then to be sure you are acting with integrity yourself.

Online Dating and Navigating Exclusivity
We think we want to 'play the field' and hang out to see if we get a better offer but I am not so sure this is the way to go! From what I am hearing from these women it is about setting a standard knowing your self-worth way before you meet someone. Then there is no question of whether you will be one to 'mess around' or not...

Boundaries, Parties, Lying and Me
Sometimes we need to take a moment to understand what is behind the rebellion. Stay in the Loop with Lucy takes a moment here with Big Little Kids to consider how we can view our behaviour in childhood as an adult. Does the child inside ever really go or is there a big little kid in all of us trying to work out what was behind our seemingly wayward behaviour and can that reflection offer gold to parents trying to deal with a rebellious teen?

Parenting In Lockdown
We have all these pictures about how to be the perfect parent and they can all come to a rather messy, puss filled head when constrained by lockdown and restrictions in our physical space. Yet how we approach it can have a massive impact on outcomes. What if it is a wonderful opportunity to listen to each other and to honour what each person in the home is feeling? Listen to my three amazing guests share their lived experiences.

What's going on with Ryan?
We can see children as too small to know any better, or we can see them as equals who have much to offer us by reflection. Ryan Adams shares with great tenderness how his behaviour could have been described as 'rambunctious' and perhaps 'difficult' but to him, he was trying to work out who he was and trying to build his own boundaries. Now, as a parent himself, he offers some wise reflections for us, not just as parents, but as a community who parent the many children and young adults in our community.

Ease - Unease - Disease
Lockdown can be seen in two ways - our worst nightmare, or an opportunity to re-evaluate, make changes, set new foundations and then take that back out into the world again. Are you ready to consider if the lenses through which you have viewed your life to date are the lenses that best reflect your true self? Gabrielle Caplice and Annette Baker join Lucy Dahill for another in-depth discussion on ease, unease and disease.
