A teacher, healer, and artist, Paul Levy is the author of several mind-blowing books including that explore the nature of madness, evil, psychological and emotional abuse, the projection of the shadow self, and the existence of Wetiko – a mind virus that is at the root of every crisis we and the world are facing today, but which, once recognized, can help humanity wake up and bring sanity back to our society. His titles include Awakened by Darkness – When Evil Becomes Your Father, Quantum Revelation: A Radical Synthesis of Science and Spirituality, and Wetiko – Healing the Mind-Virus that Plagues our World.

“There are no bad parts.”

We’ve all been taught to believe that we have a single identity or personality, and to feel fear or shame when we can’t control the inner voices that don’t match the ideal of who we think we should be. Yet according to Dr. Richard Schwartz’s research, “All of us are born with many sub-minds—or parts,” and it’s perfectly natural to think that some of them are so bad they must stay hidden.

But the fact is, says Dr. Schwartz, there are no bad parts… for the simple reason that every single part has a purpose.

Dr. Richard C. Schwartz has been transforming psychology for decades with his internal family systems (IFS) model developed in response to clients’ descriptions of various parts within themselves. in 2000, he founded the Center for Self-Leadership which offers trainings and workshops in IFS for professionals and the general public. He is the author of five books including, No Bad Parts: Healing Trauma and Restoring Wholeness with the Internal Family Systems Model.

Richard Schwartz joins Rebecca and Sandie this week to share why his IFS model has been so effective in areas such as trauma recovery, addiction therapy, and depression treatment and how this new understanding of consciousness has the potential to radically change our lives.

With statistics showing that stress, depression, anxiety and fear are fast becoming a major global problem, more and more people are turning to medical marijuana to help lift their low moods, calm chronic tension, ameliorate withdrawal symptoms, and ease their physical, mental, and emotional pain.

But how effective is medical marijuana really? And, perhaps more importantly, how safe?

While marijuana is the most commonly used drug of abuse in the USA, 26 states and the District of Columbia have now enacted laws that have legalized its use in some form, and three additional states have passed measures permitting the use of medical marijuana. With the cannabis debate being such a hot topic of late, Rebecca and Sandie have invited experts Dr. Rasean Hodge and Nick McCauley on to Cracked! The Podcast this week to unravel some of the many myths and misconceptions about cannabis in general, and the question of medical marijuana being a safer alternative to opiates and NSAIDs in treating PTS, depression, anxiety, addiction, mental health issues, and pain.

Dr. Rasean Hodge received his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Morehouse College and earned his medical degree, cum laude, from the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Hodge completed his internship and residency in Family Medicine from the Morehouse School of Medicine in 2005.

Upon completion of his education, Hodge matriculated into Family Medicine and served as Investigator on numerous clinical research studies aimed at making the human condition better for those who are suffering. His compassion for those in need continued to be evident as he has led several Hospice Programs throughout Georgia as both Medical Director and Assistant Medical Director.

Nick McCauley is an expert on marijuana.

We all know people whose lives would be so much better if only they would listen to our advice and change…

We argue and fight with parents, relatives, students or children who don’t do what we want them to… we criticize colleagues who don’t behave in a way that we feel they should, and even sever relationships with partners, loved ones, and friends who won’t listen to us, even when we’re telling them something for their own good.

The truth is we all think WE know what’s best for others. Sometimes, we might even be right. But regardless of how well-meaning our motivation is, will never change someone by pushing.

So how do we get people to change? According to the latest neuroscience, there is a secret biological key to coaching genuine, lasting change in the lives of others and in us. Joining Rebecca and Sandie this week to explain the mechanisms that affect our ability to let go of behaviors, habits, thought patterns, and addictions that don’t serve us and open to new ideas and change is expert in the field of emotional intelligence, behavioral change, and competence, Professor Richard Boyatzis.

Richard Boyatzis PhD is a distinguished University professor at Case Western Reserve University, as well as a professor in the departments of Organizational Behavior, Psychology, and Cognitive Science. A fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and the Association for Psychological Sciences, he is the author of over 200 papers and nine books including one that reveals the secret we’d all like to know… Helping People Change: Coaching with Compassion for Lifelong Learning and Growth.

According to Hungarian-Canadian physician, speaker and best-selling author, Dr. Gabor Maté: “Trauma is a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically and then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and now you’re acting out of pain. It induces fear and now you’re acting out of fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you. Trauma is that scarring that makes you less flexible, more rigid, less feeling and more defended.”

In this episode of Cracked! The Podcast, Rebecca Schaper and Sandie Sedgbeer speak with group and individual psychotherapist and author, Malcolm Stern about understanding, moving beyond, and healing emotional, physical, and psychological trauma.

MALCOLM STERN originally trained in Humanistic Psychology and has been working as a group and individual psychotherapist for more than 30 years. He is co-director and co-founder of alternatives at Alternatives, the internationally renowned platform for leading spiritual teachers and alternative thinking at St. James’s Church in London. In addition to running psychotherapy groups and courses internationally, he teaches occasionally at the Esalen Institute in California and Findhorn in Scotland, and is the author of Falling in Love, Staying in Love, and Slay Your Dragons with Compassion – 10 Ways to Thrive Even When it Feels Impossible.
