Mike Birbiglia Faces His Darkest Fears and Puts Them On Stage
Play • 41 min

Monologist and comedian Mike Birbiglia has always had a mile-long dark streak. Even if he’s never been diagnosed with clinical depression, he’s recognized his own lack of capacity to feel joy and is constantly aware of a kind of existential dread that haunts him. But rather than shy away from all that, he picks at it. Mike fills us in on how he deals with that darkness and the inner meaning of a lot of his work.

Laura Reagan, LCSW-C
265: Energy Healing, Psychospiritual Work + Somatic Psychology with Dr Andy Hahn
Welcome back to Therapy Chat! In episode 265, host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C interviews Dr. Andy Hahn about his Life Centered Therapy method and training process. There was so much to say it couldn't all be contained in one interview, so next week you will hear part 2! About our guest: Andrew Hahn, Psy.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist. He received his A.B. Magna Cum Laude in Social Studies/Psychology from Harvard University and his Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Hahnemann University. He is certified by Helen Palmer to teach the Enneagram and has also been a faculty member in the graduate Counselling Programs at Lesley University and Northeastern University. While Dr. Hahn’s strong foundation and significant experience in traditional psychology has served his clients well, he has been untiring in his effort to understand what is going on for people so that he can better help them live more contented and healthier lives. This calling for greater understanding, as well as certain experiences which he could not fully comprehend within the confines of traditional Western paradigms, led him on a search for answers that opened him to the worlds of Buddhist and Eastern Psychology; Mystery Trainings; and Depth, Archetypal and Spiritual Psychology. Thich Nhat Hanh, Brugh Joy, Dick Olney, Helen Palmer, Barbara Hastings, and Claudio Naranjo were particularly influential teachers for him. His collaboration with Dr Judith Swack opened him to the world of kinesiology and energy psychology. Taking all of his prior experience and this collaboration led to the development of Life Centered Therapy and its training institute. Dr. Hahn has been using LCT for the past 25 years to successfully treat physical problems such as chronic pain, asthma, and allergies; emotional and mental problems such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and much much more. In addition, a year-long training program has taught the approach to over a thousand students. Life Centered Therapy is a revolutionary healing framework that is a blueprint for transforming most problems, ranging from the most pedestrian to the most treatment resistant. And sometimes, the transformation simply takes one hour. The work provides people with an entirely new way of healing their suffering and helps them create miracles in their lives.

Ep 209: Katrina of How She Got Free Podcast
On the last stop of Akilah’s tour of introductions to all the hosts on our network, you’ll meet Katrina Monique and hear about her upcoming show, How She Got Free Podcast. Katrina Monique and Akilah have an insightful conversation about what liberation can mean in the process, the many layers that self awareness and healing have, the struggle and joy when Katrina completely embraced herself, what does it mean to live with depression and more. Before that convo, Akilah gives a hint of what’s coming next month with Season 6, and tells you her plan for making sure, as her granny would say, “har eaz nyam grass!” As we reach the end of this love fest, don’t forget to subscribe to all five podcasts! In addition to Fare Of The Free Child, we produce She Said We Shed with Aja; How She Got Free with Katrina; Grief, Growth and Goals with Lou Hollis; Plant It Up with Val; and the upcoming P.O.U.R. (Purposely Opening Up to Relationships) podcast with Leslie Bray. *Redefining liberation* How She Got Free Podcast is inspired by a book and retreat that Katrina and Akilah created and nurtured during 2012-2013. This podcast version is designed to show us ways we can generate healing for ourselves and invite others to acknowledge and name their own healing needs too. Katrina shares her experience with her own mental health diagnoses, examining her relationships to concepts like strength and joy, and how something that looked scary ended up liberating her. They also speak about the impact that colonial society has in mental health, and all the things Black women and Black people in general have been impacted by and still struggle with. *Notables you might dig...* Akilah and Katrina point out how our ancestors developed mechanisms to survive and thrive without realizing they could suffer from depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses that harmed them and caused intergenerational trauma among communities. What arose during that discussion was a) what wounds came from fighting for your freedom, and b) how do we not turn our wounds into weapons against those we love? Also, trauma shows up in our relationships with our bodies, with our children, with our community, and Katrina talks about building structure around trauma, embracing who we are, naming things by speaking up and accepting the trauma not only as an individual process but also in community. *LIBERATION WALK* * Watch the video version from this episode on YouTube * Join Katrina’s community, How We Got Free on Facebook * Join Akilah's email list Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/akilah)

This season on Hormonal we’ve learned a lot about birth control. From the origin of the pill, to how side effects can be beneficial, to the history and future of Reproductive Justice.

This week on the Hormonal podcast, we are assembling a super squad of science-backed Mythbusters. They’re ready to tackle questions from real users like you. On the mythbusting squad we’re welcoming back Dr. Lynae Brayboy, Clue’s Chief Medical Officer–and also joining us is Amanda Shea, Clue’s Head of Science, and Dr. Hajnalka Hejja, Clue’s Science Lead for Product.
