Sarah Anne Shockley – The Pain Companion

Growing up in the fifties and sixties, my mother was a great source of practical wisdom. Once I developed a toothache over a holiday weekend. The dentist was unavailable and I was having difficulty processing the pain. In her wisdom, my mother said, “Relax. The pain will fade in a few hours and you will be able to manage until the dentist returns.” She was right and I was fortunate. When it comes to physical pain, especially chronic pain, there are many who are less fortunate.

According to the American Academy of Pain Medicine, 100 million Americans suffer chronic pain. Compare that with the 25.8 million who are dealing with diabetes and 16.3 million experiencing heart disease. The estimated cost of health care and lost wages to pain treatment is 800 billion dollars. Add to that the tragedy of those who become addicted to pain medications and the outlook is quite grim.

What if there was another way to look at chronic pain and in doing so come to terms with it? My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Sarah Anne Shockley, did just that. In the Fall of 2007, she contracted Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), which is a collapse of the area between the clavicles and first ribs, and has lived with debilitating nerve pain ever since. She has been a columnist for Pain News Network and is a regular contributor to The Mighty, a 1.5 million–member online community for those living with chronic illness and pain. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and you can visit her online at http://www.ThePainCompanion.com. She joins me this week to discuss her new book, The Pain Companion.

The Blessing Of Sorrow with Rabbi Ben Kamin

Join us this “Wisdom Wednesday” as we welcome award-winning author Rabbi Ben Kamin and discuss his new book The Blessing of Sorrow: How to Turn Grief Into Healing.

All 7 billion of us share the inevitability of death. But as Rabbi Ben Kamin argues in his thoughtful and compassionate new book, THE BLESSING OF SORROW: HOW TO TURN GRIEF INTO HEALING, Americans are uniquely bad at the mourning process, and those deficiencies have real-life consequences. Through anecdote and personal experience, Rabbi Kamin shows why the active process of grieving is necessary to moving on, and why Americans, with their obsession with beauty and youth, and their reticence to show emotion, have so much trouble when confronting the stark realities of death.

When someone dies, we use platitudes, “he’s in a better place”; “They had a good run.” We show up to the funeral, make a shiva call, and then go home. Sometimes, we turn mourning periods into “celebrations of life” to make the day a little less somber. But, what happens to them when everyone goes back to their routine and they are left with the void? In BLESSING OF SORROW, Kamin shows how we can better support those who are grieving and how we can better grieve ourselves. He shows how we can be good neighbors, relatives, and friends to those in mourning, and he suggests practical ways to honor a loved one’s memory and how to begin to heal.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Rabbi Ben Kamin holds a Doctor of Divinity degree from Hebrew Union College and is a clergyman, teacher, counselor, and the award-winning author of eleven books on human values, civil rights, and spirituality. He has a national platform as a scholar on the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and has led congregations in Toronto, New York, Cleveland, San Diego, and Laguna Woods, California. Since his ordination in 1978, Kamin has published hundreds of articles about community life in newspapers around the world, ranging from the New York Times to the International Herald-Tribune. He appears frequently on radio and television and serves on several national boards dealing with community affairs and multicultural relations.

Common Ground in the Age of Trump - From Resistance to Pro-activism

Common Ground in the Age of Trump – From Resistance to Pro-activism

A Conversation with Author and Activist Shariff Abdullah

“There are no sides, only angles. And when we see it from the right angle, we are all on the same side.” — Swami Beyondananda

At a time when resistance seems “irresistible” and Trumpism and anti-Trumpism have dominated the conversation, is there a way to create a proactive, unifying vision and a movement that activates and accelerates that vision?

Our guest this week, Shariff Abdullah, says yes, there is. And that pathway is a world designed to work for all.

Shariff knows all about conflict and gang rivalry… he grew up in a rough neighborhood in Camden, New Jersey where teenagers who would have been best off working together for the betterment of all joined gangs that fought one another. Out of this potentially “down-bringing” upbringing, Shariff got his law degree, and has spent the better part of his lifetime working on behalf of mutual understanding, inclusivity and turning the ideal of “oneness” into the real deal of creating systems and situations where we can indeed create a world that works for all beings.

As an author, Shariff has written several paradigm-shifting books, including: The Power of One: Authentic Leadership in Turbulent Times; Creating a World That Works for All; Seven Seeds for a New Society; Practicing Inclusivity; and The Chronicles of the Upheavals.

In this week’s conversation, we will discuss a proactive rather than reactive way to trump Trumpism by stepping off the battlefield and “daring” to speak, stand for, and work for what we all know is possible. We’ll address those classic questions, “what’s so, so what and now what?” as we learn some key distinctions between reactive activism and “proactivism” where we design a new game, rather than playing by the rules of a fixed game.

Overcoming an Expectation Hangover®

We’ve all held a vision for something we want to happen in our lives—whether it’s a new job, a healthy relationship or ja life experience. When our expectations are met and things go according to plan, we feel accomplished, in control, and on track. But when life does not live up to our expectations, we end up with my guest, Christine Hassler calls the Expectation Hangover. We’ll be diving into that today and so much more.

About the Guest: Christine Hassler

An Interview with Dr. Laura Tadd, Professional Astrologer and Author

An Interview with Dr. Laura Tadd, Professional Astrologer and Author

As a social scientist and internationally known astrologer, Dr. Laura Tadd has found an astrological perspective to be unparalleled when it comes to helping us heal from the past, access our potential and lead deeply fulfilling lives. One of her arias of greatest focus is the parent and child relationship. She is currently working on a book expanding on her e-book – Stellar Parenting: Enriching the Parent and Child Relationship – found on her website www.mythicsky.com.

The parent-child relationship is profoundly nuanced. Consequently, any attempt at a universal parenting theory is doomed to fail. It is not that parenting is without constants. All children need love, and research has shown the importance of physical affection; even the youngest of children need touch to thrive. But, if we hope to raise freethinking individuals who flourish in ways unique to them, we must tailor how they are parented.

The addition of an astrological view helps a parent understand their child and their relationship with them. It illuminates there are points of ease; where they push their child’s buttons and where their child pushes theirs. Likewise, astrology can aid a parent in mundane things, like individualizing study habits, as well as more complex challenges such as bullying on the playground.

Families operate in a systemic way, and when one member changes the whole family is impacted. Applying an astrological perspective, not only deepens one’s understanding of their child and their relationship with them, but it is also an unparalleled tool for adults to understand, improve and heal their relationship with their family of origin.
