Transform Your Inner Bully Into Your Best Friend
Your Inner Bully is that negative voice inside your head that lets you know you’re not enough. Understanding its origins helps pave the way to healing it. This voice has many sources, including your ancestors’ experiences, your reaction to the way you were brought up as well as messages from society. Its directives have shaped the way you see yourself and influenced how you relate to your friends, lovers, workers and mentors. It has also influenced how you have made your way in the world. You can see its effect quite clearly by answering these questions: Did you find immediate success and build from there? Has your career trajectory been up and down? Have you been able to reach the success and fulfillment you desire? The good news is that its real purpose is to keep you safe and secure. The even better news is that its negative messages can be changed into positive directives to support your success. In this interview, discover how to transform that critical inner voice and turn it into your best ally. You can find Karen at https://thinktheta.com/.

In Our Blood
Caitlin Billings thought she could neatly walk away from her past. After finding support in her adoptive father and overcoming an eating disorder in college, she thought she had worked through her own pain enough to provide support for others. In her work as a mental health professional and role as a mother, she felt tremendous pressure to embody perfection and present stability. But a hold-up at gunpoint breaks her carefully balanced world apart. Suddenly, Caitlin is trapped by frightening mental health issues while raising two young children, and just when she feels in control of her newfound bipolar disorder, her elder child shows similar depressive symptoms. Convinced she is to blame for her child’s pain, Caitlin is determined to be perfect, to provide stability for her family—until an allegation of sexual assault in their home makes her question her fundamental ability to protect her children. Amidst a relapse and overwhelming internalized shame, her elder child comes out as transgender, forcing Caitlin to reconsider her own tolerance and understanding. Part coming-of-age, part reckoning of motherhood, In Our Blood is a therapist’s honest account of professional and personal struggles and an intergenerational story of acceptance, self-love and fluidity.

Encore How Parenting Became A Verb
When did “parenting” become a verb? Why is it so hard to parent, and so rife with the possibility of failure? Sitcom families of the past—the Cleavers, the Bradys, the Conners—didn't seem to lose any sleep over their parenting methods. Today, parents are likely to be up late, doomscrolling on parenting websites. In Long Days, Short Years, Andrew Bomback—physician, writer, and father of three young children—looks at why it can be so much fun to be a parent but, at the same time, so frustrating and difficult to parent. It's not a “how to” book (although Bomback has read plenty of these) but a “how come” book, investigating the emergence of an immersive, all-in approach to raising children that has made parenting a competitive (and often not very enjoyable) sport. To learn more about Andy and his book, Long Days, Short Years, go to: https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/long-days-short-years and you can find your host, Eva Medilek, at www.evamedilek.com or connect with Eva directly at www.talkwitheva.com

Your Body Will Show You the Way
In a world of upheaval and rapid change, how can we enlist the intelligence of the body’s subtle energies to help us heal, build resilience, and evolve? That question is at the heart of Ellen Meredith’s new book Your Body Will Show You the Way: Energy Medicine for Personal and Global Change (New World Library, September 13, 2022), which explores energy medicine as a conversation between the body, mind, and spirit and equips readers with practical tools for healing themselves from the inside out. “After learning about consciousness and energy medicine through intense training with my inner teachers, through practice as an energy healer and channel with more than ten thousand clients and students, I have come to see energy dialogue via the body not only as key to healing my own dis-ease and ailments but also as a doorway through which each of us can learn how to create personal, social, and planetary well-being itself,” writes Ellen. “In this book, I am showing you how to find this doorway within yourself and inviting you, in your own ways, to step through it.” Your Body Will Show You the Way offers practical explorations of how energy works to initiate change and stories that help readers awaken to their personal beliefs and experiences. The energy medicine exercises, activities, and protocols Ellen offers throughout the book empower readers to speak the energetic language of the body, mind, and spirit and create profound shifts in their everyday lives.

Substance abuse issues have worsened dramatically since COVID-19 arrived on the scene and those with alcohol and drug addictions have been especially impacted.

That’s why author and renowned QiGong teacher Steven Washington wrote Recovering You: Soul Care and Mindful Movement for Overcoming Addiction (New World Library, November 15, 2022) for anyone, addicted or not, who has become disconnected from their best self. Whether one is long on the path of recovery, taking their first step in that direction, or simply feeling adrift and unmoored, Stevens approach offers a lifeline not just to recovery but to the discovery of a new and better way of being.

Transformation through the journey of Sacred Intelligence.
Millions are walking around imprisoned by wounds of the past. Those wounds came from communities or people that you thought were safe. You trusted them because you felt connected, loved and understood. Sadly, this trust was horribly broken when views began to differ, when someone in authority or within the community betrayed you or when you didn't get the support you needed at a time when you felt most confused or alone.
