Healing from Betrayal with Debi Silber

In episode 76 of Fresh Tracks I speak with transformational psychologist and author Deb Silber about betrayal. When we are betrayed it hits us at a very deep, core part of ourselves and shatters our trust. When experiencing a betrayal, either in your personal or professional life, it’s imperative to process and heal rather than push down the emotions and forge on. Debi shares with us the five stages of healing from betrayal as well as the value of discovering the lessons that are there to be learned when you are betrayed. Both are instrumental in growing through this experience rather than having it ruin you.

A betrayal hurts so much because it is intentional. We are forced to face the fact that someone close to us put their needs above ours. Initially, survival instincts and strategies take over and we function on autopilot. In this week’s Fresh Tracks we examine why many people get stuck in survival mode rather than heal and move into the growth phases we are designed to experience. Making meaning of the experience allows you to heal, learn the lesson you are charged with learning, and become the stronger and more resilient person you are meant to be.

Lola Wright – On Being Yourself

In episode 74 of Fresh Tracks I speak with spiritual leader and consciousness powerhouse Lola Wright. Our discussion runs the gamut from the important role being authentic plays in contributing to society as a whole and why self-expression can be such an important value to society. Lola shares her personal journey cutting Fresh Tracks from becoming a mom at 18, to a career in the finance industry to becoming the Spiritual Director of Bodhi Chicago.

How do you know it’s time to for you to cut your Fresh Tracks? Lola answers this question and provides a 7-day process for checking “your aliveness” in your day-to-day life. We also discuss why cutting Fresh Tracks is important – because people who enjoy the life they are living are contributing more to the planet! Finally, we breach the topic of race in America and why it’s such an important topic to explore.
