Curve Balls and Cool Pauses

This week was INTENSE for many in my practice, myself, and many of my dear friends. As I was making my coffee on Monday I thought to myself, “Life is a series of Curve Balls and Cool Pauses!” After a short hiatus this summer I thought it would be fun to kick off the school […] Continue reading…

Eleanor Lerman — Award Winning Writer Tackles Caregiving a Sibling with Alzheimers

Have you ever wondered what would happen if one of your family members developed Alzheimers, and unexpectedly came to live with you? Acclaimed author and poet, Eleanor Lerman, just published the book “Watkins Glen” which examines this very situation.

At the heart of “Watkins Glen” is the story of Susan, a woman in her sixties, who reluctantly finds herself having to take care of her estranged older brother, Mark, who has developed Alzheimer’s. Susan is living in Watkins Glen, a town in upstate New York, where she takes her brother to live—temporarily, she thinks. In the throes of his illness, Mark has developed a rare but well-known symptom of dementia called Acquired Artist Syndrome, whereby people who have never even thought about painting suddenly become obsessed with the art.

How The Ideas of Liberty Win with Chris Rossini

How The Ideas of Liberty Win with Chris Rossini The Outer Limits of Inner Truth sits down with Chris Rossini (the Editor & Writer for the RonPaul Liberty Report as well as a Media Coordinator for RonPaul) for the third time for a timeless discussion on spreading the ideas of freedom in a world of tyranny. Rossini shares insights from his most recent articles and gives everyone reason to be very hopeful for the future in the long term. On a personal note, OLIT has always been a huge supporter of Rossini’s work and we feel that he is a modern day Thomas Paine.

Stephanie Raffelock — “Creatrix Rising: Unlocking the Power of Mid-Life Women”

In “Creatrix Rising: Unlocking the Power of Mid-life Women”, Stephanie Raffelock lays out through personal stories and essays the highlights of the past fifty years in which women went from quiet strength to a resounding voice. She invites us along her own transformational journey by providing probing questions for reflection, so we can flesh out and bring to life this new archetype within ourselves.
?
Written in the spirit of Women Who Run With the Wolves, “Creatrix Rising” gives context in which to place the great, creative surge that women of later years are experiencing personally and collectively. The Crone is replaced by the new archetype of Creatrix, now morphed from the ugly old witch of the forest into the shining inner guide of Creatrices everywhere.

I hesitate to Celebrate: Part 1

I love talking with Joe. So, here we are again! This is a two-part conversation. In Part 1, Joe and I talk about how hard these past few months have been. For me it’s finishing 6 months of intensive chemotherapy. For Joe, it’s wrestling with his work, passion and purpose. We talk about going through hard stuff again (and again) and how to make sense of it when maybe it just doesn’t make sense. We talk about how to let ourselves celebrate getting to the other side and why that seems so hard to do. Mostly, we connect on what it means to be human.

Understanding Complex PTSD with Pamela Lynn Hock

Join us for a frank conversation about this often misunderstood diagnosis and how understanding it helps us to understand trauma in general.

Trigger Warning: Conversation about Sexual Assault, Trafficking, and Sex Offenders.

Pamela Lynn Hock was the first person that I ever heard talk about Complex-PTSD. In the past several years I have learned so much about this diagnosis and the gap left in care for people who live with it. Pamela is a brilliant, hilarious, powerful storyteller and trauma survivor living w/C-PTSD. Pamela works helping others heal from trauma, in addition to the brave, important, and often controversial role as a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider.

Antonia Rolls — When Your Family Member is Addicted

Behind every addict, there is at least one person traumatized by loving them. Antonia Rolls’ ongoing art project asks both the addict and the person who loves them to say something about how they are coping. Rolls paints portraits of each sitter and writes what they say on the actual painting. She paints each person as an angel or a saint, or at least a divine person, something to do with the dark and the light, the heaven and hell of addiction.

We Matter A Lot More Than We Think We Do – My Conversation with Jim Dunlap

Jim Dunlap is living with multiple neurological disorders which even his doctors don’t completely understand. To say his life has changed as a result is an understatement. He once worked in highly successful real estate career and directed a national pro cycling team. He has said good-bye to those things that once identified him. I can relate. I loved talking with Jim. We talked about facing our deaths, learning from our pain and embracing humility vs humiliation. And, we laughed in spite of it all.
