Play • 1 hr 2 min

In this episode, Les chats with psychologist Dr. David Roland about navigating suffering, and discovering new growth from the lessons it brings. Dr. Roland also explores ways we can support others during challenging times.

Dr. David Roland is a writer, presenter and psychologist whose work draws on lived experience and his professional training. He graduated with a BSc (Hons) from the University of Sydney and gained his PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Wollongong with a research focus on performance anxiety in musicians. David worked as a clinical and forensic psychologist for more than twenty years in the treatment and assessment of clients ranging from children to adults, the Children’s Court Clinic and the Criminal Court. He is currently an Honorary Associate with the University Centre for Rural Health, University of Sydney, and a founding member of Compassionate Mind Australia. He is an advisor to the Young Stroke Project with the National Stroke Foundation.

David’s latest book "The Power of Suffering: Growing through life crises" draws together the real-life stories of 11 incredible people who survived their crises and grew in transformative ways. David not only narrates these stories, but he also examines them through the lens of posttraumatic growth. He details how to be an ‘expert companion’ to someone who is going through crisis.

His memoir "How I Rescued My Brain: a psychologist’s remarkable recovery from stroke and trauma" describes how David set about implementing his own rehabilitation plan using neuroplasticity, psychology and social connection. This book was shortlisted for an ABIA award in 2015 and was selected by Reading Well (UK) as a prescription book.

"The Confident Performer" is a self-help guide for anyone in the performance space and came out of his PhD research and work with hundreds of performers, public speakers and examination takers. It has been used worldwide in performing arts teaching institutions.

David is published in Best Australian Science Writing 2015. He has been featured in international publications, radio and television including the Sunday Express, The Independent, The Sydney Morning Herald, Huffington Post, The Conversation, Wellbeing, ABC Television and ABC Radio National. In 2015, he was awarded the Stroke Foundation’s Creative Award. He has academic publications in the fields of performance anxiety and vicarious trauma.

# 33 Keen on Yoga Podcast with Magnus Fridh
Magnus Fridh grew up as a restless child in Karlshamn, Blekinge, in southern Sweden. When he was seventeen, his life took a surprising and abrupt turn, his family received a visit from Karma, a Tibetan youth they were sponsoring. He was initially sceptical of anything that he deemed ”New Age”. It didn’t take long before he realized the power of both meditation and mindfulness, and as he grew more interested he travelled to India to practice yoga, and later on specialized in Indology. Today, Magnus is one of Sweden’s foremost experts on meditation and well-being. He regularly teaches group Ashtanga yoga, mindfulness and meditation classes. His book THE ART OF STILLNESS IN A NOISY WORLD is a beautifully-packaged, down-to-earth guide. Divided into three parts: The Everyday, in which we learn how to find moments of stillness in daily life; Nature, where we leave the city life behind to ease our tensions; and Meditation, a practical guide to the growing art of meditation. Magnus instils in us that we do not need to make drastic changes to change our lives, but small ones that will collectively increase our creativity, inspiration, and joy. He mixes personal reflections from his own wealth of experience with in-reading tips and suggestions—meaning, you can read and re-read this small guide to find inner calm and train yourself to become a master of stillness in your own life and surroundings. The book has a companion playlist of meditative instrumental music, recorded by Magnus and Night Gestalt, searchable on Spotify under the original Swedish title of the book. Magnus is also one of the founders of the Mindfulness app. The app has become wildly popular around the world, having been translated into 13 languages and involved in a number of ongoing research projects.

Being a Highly Sensitive Person While Black with Sydney James
From Sydney, "Being a Highly Sensitive Person has its own unique set of challenges and beautiful moments. When we factor in the added worldview of being a person of color, it changes the way in which we identify and relate to our sensitivities and sometimes we may not give ourselves permission to show up authentically. Join the discussion in identifying what may be hindering you from acceptance of your sensitive trait and tips on navigating the world as a highly sensitive person while black. I want my HSP audience to receive the message that they don't have to align with the narrative that sensitivity means weakness and can embrace that side of themselves if it's there." Sydney promotes healing, nurturing an authentic self-image and strengthening relationships in all that she does. Sydney is on a mission through The Sensitive Black Girl community to empower black women to embrace their sensitivity as a superpower and meet other women they can relate to. Sydney is also the owner of Black On Black Therapy, a virtual safe space supportive of sensitive souls, LGBTIQ+ affirming and social justice oriented. Sydney is a Highly Sensitive Black Woman herself and dedicated to continuing the conversation of the HSP trait in the black community. www.blackonblacktherapy.com Facebook.com/blackonblacktherapy & Facebook.com/thesensitiveblackgirl Instagram.com/blackonblacktherapy & Instagram.com/thesensitiveblackgirl Sydney also has a guide: The Workbook Guide To Managing Racial Fatigue For more information about The HSP Podcast, visit, HSPpodcast.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/julie-bjelland/message

#48: Tapping into the Subconscious Mind
The secret to yoga practice is in the asanas. These poses we twist our bodies into are not just for our physical health and strength. Yoga practice has the power to lead you on a path of liberation from the mind and body. In this episode of the Yoga Inspiration Podcast, I get a little theoretical and discuss how yoga gets into our subconsciousness. While our subconscious minds are made up of the habitual reactions of our thoughts, bodies, and emotions, yoga can tap into and disrupt even the most negative cycles of thinking. How? Consider this - rather than thinking of our brains and minds as synonymous, consider the theory that our mind is actually capable of creating reality based on our perception. This perception includes our innate physical reactions to certain stimuli, such as pain or pleasure. For example, when something is uncomfortable, our reaction is to run away or otherwise remove ourselves from the painful situation. But if you practice yoga, you are training yourself to remain neutral in the face of discomfort. The discomfort we experience on the yoga mat is there to teach us how to recognize bodily sensations in response to various experiences. Yoga teaches us that it’s not the pain that’s important. It’s the way we react to this pain that matters the most. And this heightened sense of the body gives you an access point into your subconscious mind. What will you do with this access? Will you have the power to break your habits? Learning how not to react is one of the most important lessons you will learn on the yoga mat. Mastering it will give you the ability to change the way you think, and that is the first step toward changing your habits and becoming the best possible version of yourself. Tune in now for more important lessons in spiritual training, and contact me with other valuable lessons you have learned a valuable lesson through yoga practice. Send an email at info@kinoyoga.com and tell me - what does yoga mean to you? You could be invited to guest spot on The Yoga Inspiration Podcast.
