Kasia May - less stress, more joy

Education Podcasts >

I created this space to let us connect and talk about things as they truly are. My goal is presenting specific tools to make life changes real, some science perspective, therapeutic knowledge. But no taboos here - I want us to talk about violence, difficult emotions, things people try to believe they are not happening but statistics are terrifying. I want to break taboos and have some influence on human consciousness. I’ve been working a lot on myself, trying different methods, meeting different people to help myself and feel strong. I feel there is a lot of possibilities of self-development but not so easy to find them. I want to take part in the popularisation of knowledge and concrete ways to feel better, live easier no matter what kind of traumas we carry, just have less stress and more joy in life.

EMDR - Eye movements which reduce stress and let us feel distant

4/22/2019
More
EMDR means Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. It is a very simple therapeutic method which simulates the state of mind when we sleep and we have intense dreams. This phase of sleep is called the REM and it is crucial for our mental health and our mood during a day. It serves us to process all the pieces of information from our lives – it deletes the ones we don’t need anymore, it saves the new ones and according to those, it changes the ways our subconsciousness functions and...

A safe place technique in healing depression and effects of high stress

4/9/2019
More
During a nerve-wracking experience which is judged by our subconsciousness as a danger without a possibility to fight, a body pretends it is dead in order to save us. That’s an effect of being exposed to high stress which we call ‘depression’. It is the way our survival instinct works. An animal which can’t evade a predator tries to look like carcass to avoid death. It could have been helpful for us when we lived in the natural world. Unfortunately, now it is quite problematic - many of us...

Forgiving is not therapeutic. It is a bullshit you should do that!

4/8/2019
More
Hey, it is Kasia May. Today’s topic is forgiveness. Have you ever heard you have to forgive people who hurt you? Have you heard without forgiving you will not find peace? You will not feel better after what happened to you? Or you will not go to heaven? What a bullshit! That’s a fucking bullshit repeated by society, church, and even some therapists. Dear, you don’t have to forgive anyone. Moreover, you should not do it to let yourself feel angry with the people who hurt you or didn’t...

Kasia May - Who am I and what is it all about?

4/5/2019
More
I’m Kasia, I am a victim and a survivor of violence and – what is the most important to me right now – I am a woman who wants to change something in the world. I feel when we experience dark sides of humanity, we feel alone, we are overwhelmed, it seems like the entire world is against us and there is nothing we can do, then we develop unimaginable strength in ourselves. That strength lives in us, it lets us survive every day, just very often we don’t know how powerful we are. I will give...

Why do we feel ashamed? An answer for your emails.

4/5/2019
More
You sent me some emails with a question of why I said in public that I was a victim of violence, why I shared on the Internet what was happening in my family. There are many reasons for that. One of them is shame. I felt ashamed since I remember. And I need you to recall – I am just an example, there are millions of people like me. Maybe even you know this shame from your own experience. Do you? I hope you don’t! Anyway one day I discovered it was much easier for me to notice there was...

Listen to be able to recognize a pedophile!

4/5/2019
More
Today a very short talk. I feel speechless. A topic is very difficult. According to the last research I saw, every fourth child is sexually abused. We have to be aware those statistics are lower than real numbers because this crime is mostly not reported and not even recognized…. But quite often the signals are very clear. The problem is who the abuser is for us and what we think about pedophilia. You know, this is something everybody knows it exists, but at the same time, we are sure it’s...

Depression as a way your body tries to save us

4/5/2019
More
Your body is like a house. The way you feel depends on what is happening inside and around it, and how much you care of this place. But life is often out of control. Tornados, floods, fires happen. Then - after difficult and full of stress experience - the house needs more of our effort to become a comfortable space for us again. And it is natural sometimes we have no power and no will to clean the house after a disaster. We would like to have a nice place back but looking at the mess is...
