Fear is a funny thing. It keeps up from surrendering to love and death. It prevents us from experiencing the rich vastness of the human experience. It prevents us from feeling both the good and the bad, and avoiding it helps us think in more control. But sometimes, we have to let go. In this episode of What We’re Not Talking about, larry Indiviglia shares his beautiful and heartwarming story of falling in love with his late wife Gayle and how he let go of fear in the face of death. Show notes at: https://www.theempathyfront.com/47

Toxic spirituality is a lot more harmful than we realize. Focusing only on the positive prevents the people in pain from being seen, feeling understood, and being advocated for. It allows individuals who have always sat in the privilege to continue to sit there. Alysa Wolfe and Amy D sit down to share their experiences working with individuals ( no names) who have acted out of integrity for personal gain. The two will share tips on recognizing if you have someone who may be the ego in disguise and how to avoid their influence at all costs.Show notes at: https://www.theempathyfront.com/46

As a child, all I wanted to be was grown up. As a child, I experienced a lot of anxiety. It controlled my life and led me to feel hopeless and like a completely different type of kid than those around me. Unfortunately, during most of my childhood, play was something absent in my life. That is why, as an adult, I am doing everything in my power to include intentional play into my schedule. If this sounds weird to you, then please, please, PLEASE listen to this episode.Jeff Harry is an expert at intentional play, and he builds a pretty solid case of why you need to include it in YOUR life.

Nicholas Goodman talks about his experience working in a hospice and how he has learnt to sit with death and dying. Death and dying are subjects that are very taboo in the western world, keeping death and the process hidden from view, as per the norms in western medicine as well. Comparing this with Eastern beliefs, that grieve and mourn widely in public, we can see why so many of us in North America are afraid to die. In this conversation, we talk about processing the death and dying of our family and loved ones, and the impact that this grieving process has on us.Click here to get access to show notes: https://www.theempathyfront.com/39

Nobody likes to talk about how little teachers are paid, or how hard it is to work with different types of students and learners. We don't want to talk about how education keeps experiencing budget cut after budget cut, reversing policy to include outdated education and ways of thinking. Nobody wants to talk about teachers' trauma, and how teachers are leaving the workforce at an alarming rate. And most importantly, nobody wants to talk about how teachers are forced to work as teachers, nurses, janitors, counsellors, friends, etc. to dozens of students, and are given zero support of their own. No, we definitely do not want to talk about that.In today's episode, teacher Lindsey Acton shares her experience in the teaching world and the events that inspired her to write her book. Having experienced a traumatic event with a student in her first year of teaching, Lindsey's teaching career has been indicative of what she believes is a universal teaching experience. We talk about hard to handle student, mental illness, self-care, therapy and so much more.Click the link to get access to the show notes: https://www.theempathyfront.com/35

With the micro-dosing burst in silicon valley in 2017, micro-dosing psilocybin and LSD have become quite a hot topic for productivity. Recently, these drugs are being studied to see if they can help in the long term effects of mental illness. Devon Phillips and I talk today about our own experiences with micro-dosing and the use of psychedelics for mental illness. This episode does not blatantly advocate for the use of psychedelics but positions it on a case by case basis. There are many steps to take before some people are ready to explore the realm of psychedelics. It's integral that you are ready for the experiences. These substances remain illegal in most countries, and this episode does not advocate, promote or encourage the use of any illegal substances.Click the link to access the show notes: https://www.theempathyfront.com/33
