Dr. Jose Luis Stevens has been teaching shamanism for many years. He holds a doctorate in counseling psychology, is a licensed clinical social worker, and the author of several books.

Jose shares teachings from indigenous traditions that can be helpful in challenging times. Ancient ideas about controlling one's minds and thoughts, and the importance of balance and creativity and flow are just part of this episode.

Dr. Katherine Ortega Courtney is back, this time with Dominic Cappello, co-directors of the Anna Age Eight Institute.

Both guests are long-time advocates for childhood safety and health, working within the system. They’re very much about data-driven solutions for such things as childhood trauma, adverse childhood experiences, and building strong resilient communities.

Katherine and Dominic have co-authored two books, Anna Age Eight, and 100% Community: Ensuring 10 Vital Services for Surviving and Thriving.
 
100 Community is more than a book, however. It’s a book, a course, an initiative, and a movement. 
 
Issues discussed include:

~~ What are the “surviving services”?

medical care, behavioral health care, safe housing, secure food and transport to vital services

~~ What about the “thriving services”?

parent supports, early childhood learning programs, community schools, youth mentors and job training

Recorded early in the Covid-19 pandemic, in this episode we also talk about vulnerability and hope, and the ways in which we might use this time as a collective re-set button.

What are our priorities? What matters the most? Who matters?

Dr. JoAnne Dodgson returns for another thoughtful discussion ranging from the need for safe spaces and safe people, to what happens when we hold onto all of our emotions.

JoAnne earned a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and Holistic Health. She's also a published author, college instructor, community activist, and an initiate into the Eastern Andes shamanic lineage of Ka-Ta-See.

The shamanic lineage of Ka-Ta-See has much for us to learn, including our interconnectedness, and remembering the beauty of who we really are.

This episode builds on previous ones with JoAnne, which can be found in the Podcast listings.
