Sally was shunned by the family and cult when she started dating a boy that was not part of their beliefs… she was sent away at the age of 15!

Her fourth book, The Truth is Lie, a young adult novel, came out in May of 2023 and is based on her true-life experiences of growing up in the world's largest doomsday cult.   As a writing coach and mentor, she is passionate about writing and teaching how to create and share their stories with her program Write a Book in 30 Days – No Experience Required.

    THH056—Tears of a Clown can be the Source for Healing the World

    THH056—Tears of a Clown can be the Source for Healing the World

    In this reflective episode, host Dr. Fred Moss revisits his conversation with previous guest Benjamin Kintisch, a talented musician who described himself as a "sad clown." 

    Dr. Fred explores the concept of the sad clown and relates it to his own difficulties and sadness in life. He discusses how pain and wounds from childhood often remain unresolved, but creative people like Benjamin can channel these feelings into art, music, and other outlets.

    The discussion centers on how the rawness of pain is transmuted into beautiful works of creativity and self-expression. Dr. Fred emphasizes the "creative eight" - art, music, dance, drama, and more - as healing forms of expression. 

    He notes that entertainers and artists frequently have sadness and roughness in their past, which emerges through their creative gifts. There is a special harmonic resonance between creative people sharing their gifts and the audience receiving them.

    Dr. Fred concludes that the "tears of the clown" can become a source of healing the world, as people's vulnerabilities and creative expressions weave together.

    Tune in for a thoughtful meditation on how our deepest pains can be channeled into the creativity that connects and heals us.

    You'll be moved as Benjamin performs a soothing lullaby from the musical live on guitar that exemplifies how his music provides comfort and healing. His message about the importance of visiting loved ones, especially those who are sick or dying, is an impactful takeaway.

    Delving into themes of creativity and healing, Dr. Fred discusses his book "The Creative Healing Through Creativity and Self Expression" and Benjamin opens up about childhood pain and being a "sad clown" who channels difficulties through creative outlets. 

    This conversation explores fascinating topics like the psychology of creativity, finding meaning through life stories, and pivoting creative projects due to COVID-19.

    107. The Other Side of the GUN! | Susan Snow

    This is an episode that clearly illustrates the devastating effects trauma and PTSD can have on a person's life.

    My guest, Susan Snow, is the daughter of an Los Angeles Police Detective who was ambushed and killed on Halloween night back in 1985, while picking up his then 6 year old son from school. But worse was to come - both she and her mother were called to the school where they witnessed the body and the aftermath. Years later, the school shooting at Columbine High School brought Susan's trauma back to the surface with such a force, that she had no option but to seek help. Five years ago Susan undertook another painful task, reliving these events over and over again, to write her book - The Other Side of the Gun - My Journey from Trauma to Resiliency.

    This is an incredible story of the impacts of trauma, how to recognise the signs, and then finding a way to heal.

     

    Susan's Bio

    Susan Snow is the daughter of slain LAPD Detective Thomas C. Williams, who was ambushed and killed on October 31, 1985 when she was 17. She is a published author, speaker, and coach. Susan currently works as a Realtor in the Denver Metro area.

    405. Anatomy of an (almost) School Shooter | Aaron Stark

    405. Anatomy of an (almost) School Shooter | Aaron Stark

    Dr. Jordan B. Peterson sits down with public speaker and mental health advocate Aaron Stark. You might recognize Aaron’s name from his deeply impactful TED Talk, “I was almost a school shooter.” They walk through his life story and discuss the all-too-real result of deep parental trauma, the psychology of abuse that shapes self loathing and self harm, the drivers that nearly pushed Aaron from victim into monster, and the real, tangible act of kindness that saved lives.

     

    Aaron Stark was almost a school shooter. As a dark and destructive teen, Stark almost committed a terrible attack. Today he is a happy father of four, and he wants to do all he can to help anyone on that path to find a way into the light again and to see that they matter.

     

    After watching the news coverage of the Parkland school shootings, Stark wrote an open letter, “I was almost a school shooter.” This was sent to local news 9KUSA in Denver and was the feature story on “Next with Kyle Clark.” This story gained national attention and over 17 million views in a very short time, which propelled him into a life of activism for mental wellness awareness. He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and has published an article in the Washington Post. These features were followed by his viral TEDx talk, “I Was Almost a School Shooter” that currently has over 14 million views and is shown in schools, colleges, and universities, all the way up to the Dept. of Education.

    Episode 111: "You're Pakistani and Divorced, What Now?" with Furkhan Dandia

    Episode 111: "You're Pakistani and Divorced, What Now?" with Furkhan Dandia
    In this episode, Furkhan Dandia and I discuss his experience with being single, married, and then divorced as a Pakistani man.  Leaving his marriage left him unable to see his son for months, his employer was involved, and his Pakistani culture left him feeling isolated and alone. Furkhan turned to alcohol to numb his reality and after jumping into another toxic relationship he realized he had childhood trauma he needed to heal from…   Furkhan Dandia is a therapist, author, speaker and coach. After going through adversity and working in the corporate world as an Engineer for many years, Furkhan decided to pivot and pursue a Master's in Psychology. Furkhan is passionate about making a difference in people’s lives and working with them to find their purpose. Going through a divorce made Furkhan realize how much shame there is for men around failure. That further motivated him to help other men. After seeing the life-changing benefits of therapy, he decided to become a therapist. In addition to becoming a therapist, Furkhan has a podcast: EZ Conversations, men's groups that he facilitates to help men embrace their vulnerabilities, and has also released a book, Pursuit of Self-Love: 30 Uplifting Messages and Reflections.   I am your host, Marci Nettles. I have had a lifetime of opportunities where I had the choice to Breakdown or Breakthrough. It is my hope this Podcast may become your light in the darkness, as you listen to the stories of people I consider “heroes.” Each one had a point where they too had to choose to either Breakdown or Breakthrough! Working from home, with my husband/business partner, helping people around the world find new levels of success in their health and wellness, is part of what makes me tick!
