Episode 35: Kelsey Crowe, PhD on What to Do When Life is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love

On this episode, I talk to Kelsey Crowe, the co-author of the book, “There is No Good Card for This: What to Say and Do When Life is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to People You Love.” Although it’s not a “yoga” book written by yogi authors, so much of the approach and the advice reminded me of things we practice in yoga, that I was inspired to share it. For me, this book is part empathy primer and part emotional intelligence manual. It’s funny, it’s written with zero judgment, and it’s filled with helpful and achievable ideas that can help all of us connect to each other more and to support each other when life gets tough.

Episode 31: Bo Forbes – Self-Care for Empaths (A Neuropsych Extravaganza)

Hello everyone!

This week my guest is the effervescent, beautiful human Bo Forbes. Bo spent years as a practicing psychologist and is now a yoga teacher with a keen interest in neuropsychology. Every time I talk to Bo, I’m pretty much stunned by her depth of knowledge, her insight, and the lovely way she has about her. This conversation was supposed to be about her step-by-step system for helping people who are overly empathic. BUT, well…I just couldn’t help but ask her about so many different aspects of her life, her training, and her teaching, which is why I’m calling this episode A Neuropsych/Yoga Extravaganza. We talk about:

* Her early childhood on the Seneca reservation and how it informed her sense of interconnectedness at a young age
* How she started incorporating mindfulness practices into her clinical practice and how her clients responded
* Default mode — a system of wiring in the brain pioneered by Norman Farb that governs our tendency to ruminate or judge the past, present, and future.
* Direct experience mode — how meditation and mindfulness practices can help us recognize default mode when it’s happening and experience the present without judgement
* Empathy — why so many yoga teachers consider “empathic distress” and how to establish boundaries
* How connective tissue work helps her reset and come out of empathic distress
