We all harbor anger towards a person we feel has done us wrong. But how do we forgive someone who has caused us deep pain? I got the chance to ask the creator of the bestselling series Conversations with God. Neale Donald Walsch's books have been translated into 37 languages. His profound message -- there is no such thing as forgiveness -- made me rethink my whole approach to helping people heal from some of their most tender wounds. And, it healed one of mine.
Learning to forgive others is a major part of the healing process. But how do we forgive what, at times, feels unforgivable? Join me as I read a passage from a prolific and profound American writer that suggests those who have hurt us are some of our greatest spiritual teachers, and in fact, we may have asked them, in another dimension, to do just what they have done.
We all have them, the naysayers in our lives, the friends and family members and bosses that shoot our ideas down instead of building us up.

In just over 20 months, over 60 holistic doctors and researchers in the United States have died -- many under mysterious circumstances -- leaving families and some of us in the medical community wondering if foul play is involved. On today's episode I share one "accidental" reporter's journey; a woman named Erin Elizabeth -- who started out with a healthy lifestyle blog -- but ended up exposing, perhaps, a dark underworld of foul play.
Sexual wellness is an imperative part of overall human health. Many doctors and therapists aren't trained to talk about sex with their patients.

Then, we delve right into what we think will help listeners the most, answering questions that range from communication techniques to what enhances pleasure.

She steps up to the mic to talk about her book Irritable Hearts (about her own struggle with PTSD after an assault while on a foreign assignment) and her recent expose for RollingStone magazine -- apparently there's an underground network of therapists and doctors who treat patients with hallucinogens, not to mention studies taking place at top American universities on the use of psychedelics to treat addiction, PTSD and depression.

Are you a woman (or with a woman) who doesn't have a sex drive? Or, are you a woman who takes an antidepressant or a benzo to get through the day? We've all pretty much been there, so no pill shaming here. In today's episode I go toe-to-toe with pioneering psychiatrist Dr. Julie Holland. We talk shop about what happens to women's bodies when we medicate them and how our natural moods actually make us awesome.
Everyone has faced loss: a breakup, death of a loved one, divorce, a huge professional setback. In the West, we are programmed to avoid or numb our pain with things like alcohol, shopping, food, endless hours on social media or sex. In today's episode, one of the most profound spiritual thinkers of our time, Francis Weller, explains to us the value of facing our fears and grief while staying conscious.
