Welcome to the Rebel Buddhist™ Podcast, where I help you free your mind so you can free your life. This podcast is for the rebellious ones. The wild people. I share my stories and what I’ve learned about being a rebel soul who wants to tame her mind…but not her life. It’s led to plenty of adventures and misadventures. I’ve learned tons of tools that combine Buddhist psychology, real-world mindfulness, cognitive coaching, and modern brain science – sort of like if Buddhism and science had a love child. I want to share them with you as we walk this path together. I’m not sharing this as a dharma teacher, but as a fellow practitioner with some street cred. Welcome to my world.

Ep. 129: How to Reparent Ourselves

This week’s podcast episode is about how we can address the needs that weren’t met by our caretakers when we were children so that we stop trying to get other people – like our partners/friends/family – to meet them for us. We chat about how we can create a reality where those needs are met by ourselves through reparenting, without resentment. Plus, I explain why it’s important for us to rely on ourselves to meet those needs instead of other people (even though it would be oh-so-sweet if that happened;).

Ep. 128: Bearing Witness – Who Did You Tell?

Peter Levine said, “Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside in the absence of an empathetic witness.” Bearing witness and being witnessed is what we talk about today.

We’ll explore why it matters who acknowledged our suffering and/or who we told – and why the answer is usually, “No one.” We also dive into the importance of having (and being) an empathetic witness when healing from trauma – and healing our communities.

Ep. 127: Creating Keystone Habits

In this week’s episode, we talk about what a keystone habit is and how we all can benefit from one. Keystone habits can lead to improving other habits in completely different areas of our life, which also leads to big changes in our self-concept and identity as we become the person we want to be, fully and authentically. We go over 4 steps to creating healthy keystone habits and why finding peer support can help us manifest the best version of themselves (as long as they don’t stick us in the same old box!).
