Sex. Aging. Women. Body Shame. Relationships

08-08-18 Sex. Aging. Women. Body Shame. Relationships.

If you are like most people, reading this list of words may have caused some discomfort, shame, embarrassment, or feelings of concern. We live in a culture where pornography is easily accessible to anyone with a computer, yet conversation about healthy sexuality are nearly impossible to find. There is a double standard for men and women surrounding age and aging; women must be young and thin if they want to be sexy, but men with wrinkles or gray hair are distinguished. Breastfeeding in public is seen as questionable, or even obscene, yet most magazines, TV shows or movies show hypersexualized images of women on a regular basis, and those images are not questioned. And to top it off, the bodies that we see most frequently on TV or in magazines, are NOT what most bodies look like! The bodies we see in the media have been airbrushed and edited to the point that sometimes they don’t even look like real bodies.

Let’s face it. Americans have a strange relationship with their bodies, with the bodies of others, and healthy sexuality.

Fortunately, there are people like Anne Bercht in the world, who are not afraid to talk about healthy sexuality, aging, relationships, bodies and all the stuff that the American culture has come to view as taboo – but really isn’t.

If you have a body, if you have sex, if you have a relationship or if you are aging, then this show is for you!

Anne Bercht is an author, speaker, and relationship coach, who, along with her husband Brian, has appeared on television and radio programs throughout North America including Oprah, Montel, American Family, Marriage Uncensored, Northwest Afternoon, Vicki Gabereau, and many more. They are authors of My Husband’s Affair Became the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me, which is a Canadian Bestseller.

Their education includes training with some of the most respected relationship experts in North America including John Gottman, John Gray, Harville Hendrix, Michelle Weiner-Davis, Prepare-Enrich and PREP (the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program). They have been certified to teach several of the aforementioned programs as well as others including the Personality Style Indicator, and other assessments by Consulting Resource Group International. For a six year period, Anne was personally mentored by Peggy Vaughan, author of the Monogamy Myth, founder of the BAN network and host of dearpeggy.com.

They have written numerous articles and have been featured in newspapers and magazines throughout North America including Reader’s Digest, Macleans and Newsweek. They have been invited to speak at training sessions for therapists, and are among North America’s foremost experts on marriage and relationships as speakers at the annual Smart Marriages Conference.

The Unintended Consequence of Mental Illness

08-01-18 The Unintended Consequence of Mental Illness

Isn’t it’s comforting to know that if we are mentally healthy, we will never be impacted by any strange, bizarre, traumatic or sad consequences of mental illness? After all, bad things don’t happen to good people, and all we have to do is stay away from crazy people, right? WRONG!

According to the World Health Organization, one in four people have a mental health disorder. This means that, like it or not, we will all be impacted by mental health issues (either our own or others) at some point in our lifetime.

Join Lora as she interviews Erin, an enlightened and intelligent young woman who spent an extremely traumatic six months in a relationship with a man with mental illness.

Erin J. Green is originally from Lexington, Kentucky, though she has also lived in other fun places such as New York and Hawai’i. Currently she is enjoying a nomadic lifestyle full of lots of road trips, and has recently made a move to share her love of traveling with the world. Professionally she has worked as a librarian and event planner, and has also dedicated a large portion of her life to the study of yoga, which inspired her social media name “The Yogi Librarian.” When she is not caught up with her aforementioned activities, Erin also works as a freelance model and performance artist, a dream she recently began chasing after. She wants to encourage others to do the same and follow their passions in life that they didn’t think were achievable, because you just might surprise yourself, as she surprises herself every day!

For more about Erin and her work, and to see where she is traveling to next, visit her at www.theyogilibrarian.com, or follow her on Instagram (@theyogilibrarian).

Please take a moment and read her story, in her own words, below:

June 22, 2015

That is the day that I died, and a new me came to be. It was the first whole day of summer after the solstice, so I suppose it was only fitting for me to have a new beginning, but it wasn’t exactly my choice. However, it was a long time coming, and I needed a push to finally make a change. My push came with the change in the seasons.

What happened that day? Something that I never thought I would experience, that’s for sure, but before I get to that, I have to back up and tell the whole story for it to all make sense.

About four months earlier, I met Jordan. Jordan was, on the surface, a very quirky guy: quiet, shy and reserved, but most saw that as a good balance to me and my personality, which was usually outspoken, talkative and upfront, so to some, we made a good pair for this reason, and for the most part I agreed. Jordan and I were together often, and in the public eye we had a happy relationship together, but the truth, as always, is more complicated. What no one knew about our relationship was that both of us were slowly dying, but in different ways.

My first impression of Jordan was not a good one, because he seemed too scatterbrained for me, yet I agreed to meet with him a second time after that. I will forever wonder how my life would have ended up had I not texted him back after our first date like I originally wanted to, because I know things would not be the same. The second time I saw him, our interactions went far better. He had graciously bought me a bottle of wine, so I invited him into my apartment to drink it with me. A few hours and glasses of wine later, I woke up with him asleep next to me, and I wondered why I had let that happen, and that was the beginning of my descent…continue here: https://www.pyramidfusion.com/mind/guest-post-by-erin-green-hidden-strength/

Applying Work Place Growth and Development to Your Everyday Life

07-25-18 Applying Work Place Growth and Development to Your Everyday Life

Are there things that you do well at work that you don’t do well at home? For example, at work, are you patient, professional and attentive while listening to others, but at home you find yourself interrupting, being distracted or being short with those you love the most? If so, you are not alone!

Join Lora and her husband Shawn as they drive across the Rocky Mountains, discussing the Competency Matrix, a business awareness model that describes how people learn, and how they move from novice to expert, and how having a variety of skill levels on a team is important. Just like in business, a family is a mix of individuals with a mix of skills, levels, strengths and interests, and using this Competency Matrix, you too can learn to be happier, healthier, more patient and more aware with your family, and across your entire life!
