Join me, your host, Helena Lucia, every Thursday as we explore the topic of resilience from diverse points of view and many angles, with lovely guests who generously share their inspiring stories. The Finnish language has an amazing word Sisu that means resilience in the face of extreme adversity. In this podcast, we decompose the practice of resilience in our guest's lives, and the modalities they use to promote that beautiful resilience. We will also look at the science behind many of these modalities, as well as offering practical guides on how to test them out in your own life. Some topics we plan to discuss are meditation, mindfulness, self-compassion, intuitive eating, EFT, bodywork, EMDR, yoga, embodiment, earthing, EMDR, somatic experiencing, therapy, hypnotherapy, polyvagal theory, subconscious programming, sexual healing, alcohol-free living and many more.
