OUR THOUGHTS MATTER: It would be an honor to share with your audience how (with God’s help) I overcame depression in 2016 by using a proven strategy to take thoughts captive and to be transformed by the renewing of the mind–sounds lofty – but I have practical methods to help others, and I include some brain science to back it all up.
OUR WORDS MATTER: The Bible tells us that there is life and death in the power of the tongue. I have tips and tricks to help others become more deliberate in how they express themselves and communicate with others.
OUR HEALTH MATTERS: I love to chat about the brain/gut connection, and how we can improve brain health through diet. The foods we eat may be affecting our moods and emotions more than we think.
OUR MINDSETS MATTER: Developing and fostering the mindsets of expectancy and gratitude may be just what we need to start and finish each day with success and joy. Not only do the mindsets we adopt each day open the door to new possibilities, they also protect us from the otherwise harsh realities and trials we’re bound to bump up against in our journey.
DITCH THE ____[you pick]: Choose the toxic thought, emotion, or mindset where your audience feels “stuck.” Is the time right to overcome fear, anxiety, or overwhelm and pivot in a new, healthy direction? I can share practical applications and hacks to help others boost their confidence and gain clarity in areas where they have stalled or feel stymied.

Historical Trauma and Historical Healing: Interview with Abigail Echo Hawk | Episode 87

NOTE: Abigail Echo Hawk will be keynoting at the American Association of Suicidology’s Annual Conference on Friday, April 23rd at 9:00AM ET. You can listen to her and the many other diverse speakers virtually or in person at the conference in Orlando.

Her keynote is entitled: Decolonizing Data: Restoring Culture and Building Beauty


Historical trauma is often understood to be multigenerational wounding caused by the cumulative impact of major events inflicted upon a specific cultural, racial or ethnic group. When it comes to research about health and well-being, Western modalities of understanding human experience are limited and biased, further driving disparities and truncated views that can cause even more harm. By contrast, a strength-based, Indigenous framework of understanding resists the narrow view and on-going trauma of colonialism and focuses on restoration and healing. In this interview I speak with a “Storyteller of Health” and epidemiologist Abigail Echo Hawk about her vision of an anti-racist approach to data collection and recovery among tribal communities.
