JUL 07: Dr. Rochelle Calvert – Healing with Nature

Mindfulness and Somatic Practices to Heal from Trauma

The WHO says more than 70% of us experience trauma; and 78% of those who’ve had a traumatic experience will develop post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In addition, the average American spends 87% of their time indoors. It’s little wonder many of us spend most of our days with shoulders hunched around our ears.

Psychologist Dr. Rochelle Calvert shares how somatic healing, combined with mindfulness, and nature-based therapy, can help heal trauma and PTSD. We look at the science behind this therapy – and the research that shows the benefits of spending time in nature. We also share how to incorporate Dr. Calvert’s practices into everyday life.

DEC 11: Dr. Armin Zadeh with The Forgotten Art of Love & Dr. Becky Thompson’s Teaching with Tenderness

“As a cardiologist, I find this difficult to admit, but love is more about the brain than the heart,” writes Armin Zadeh, MD, PhD, and author of The Forgotten Art of Love: What Love Means and Why it Matters. “However, the view of love as a mental rather than magical power comes with a silver … if not golden … lining. “

On today’s show, Dr. Zadeh will help you discover the not-so-obvious connection between heart disease and state of mind, and unlock some of the answers to the mysteries of love.

Dr. Zadeh is a professor at John Hopkins University with doctoral degrees in medicine and philosophy, as well as a master’s degree in public health. As a cardiologist and scientist, Dr. Zadeh understands the close relationship between heart disease and the state of the mind.

With so much going on in our lives, it can be nearly impossible to find those cherished moments of peace each day.  Teaching with Tenderness: Toward an Embodied Practice will have you using contemplative practices such as yoga, meditation, and free writing, to help you keep your heart open as you deal with each day’s setbacks.

Becky Thompson, Ph.D., is a professor of sociology at Simmons College, human rights activist, cross-cultural trainer, writer, poet, and senior-level yoga teacher.
