As with most phobias, the fear of public speaking tends to develop in response to past experiences, either due to a single traumatic event or through gradual conditioning/association.  The fear is then compounded by both negative emotions attached to memories of the past and anticipation/expectation of future poor performance, failure and/or ridicule...

 

 

 

 

Hypnotherapy


by Mary Louise Chown

Hearing a story is like listening to music, the words falling off the teller’s tongue, onto our ears, and into our heart, setting thoughts and memories in motion. Stories are heard in the deep heart’s core and answer the burning questions that we all have. Who are we? Where did we come from? Who do we love? What have we forgotten that is important to remember?

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In this article, storyteller and mediator Mary Louise Chown reflects on her therapeutic work with story and children. She states: "Children especially need the experience of listening to stories and discovering connections with their own lives. This can strengthen their spirits for when they meet hard times, such as illness or death, or any kind of sadness or disappointment."

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Joan Stockbridge

Yesterday I flew back from my nephew’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding, celebrated in the same little stone church where I’d been married 36 years earlier. And the reception was very festive, with the dance floor crowded all night...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: As All Souls Day approaches, I am reminded of how many cultures honour their dead with a meal, a visit to the grave, and sharing of memories. No one is ever dead, an ancient tale reminds us, as long as we keep telling stories about the departed. In this poignant article, storyteller, spiritual director and SoulCollage® facilitator Joan Stockbridge recounts the importance of “ceremony” as a way of dealing with death and grief.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Nancy Brady

Memories of my grandmother Ida's cautious words occasionally play through my mind. "Child, watch your words unless you wanna be creatin' that now!" My grandma may have had an understanding that we create our life situations through our thoughts and words, but I'm not so sure she realized it is possible to undo old beliefs and recreate a new reality...

 

Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: What do you believe? And even more important: Do they work for you? Our beliefs have a huge impact on our lives, and they do not always serve us well. Read this inspirational article by Nancy Brady and learn about the power of beliefs and how you can create positive change.

 

PsychoSpiritual


by Brooke Nisbet, MA, RYT

When wild elephants are domesticated as babies, they are chained to a huge tree or to a thick iron stake driven deep into the ground.  This stake/tree is physically able to hold the young elephant, despite the elephant’s repeated attempts to pull free and escape...

 

Editor's Note: Yoga is a full-time life. Yoga happens beyond the yoga mat. It happens as you close your eyes at night, while you're driving, when you're interacting with others, when you're silently sitting with yourself. One of the ideas in yoga is to practice non-attachment. Not being stuck to a fear,anger, sadness, joy, excitement, expectation and so on. That takes you away from living in the present moment. Being tied down to your past fears and memories can also become debilitating and depressing. Don't allow yourself to be tied down to old beliefs like an elephant tied to a simple stake in the ground. He has the strength to easily pull free at any moment, but his mind keeps him bound. How about you? What's tying you down?

 

Yoga



by Charles A. Francis

Letting go of the past can be quite a challenge for many of us. Pleasant memories lure us back to happier times in our lives, and unpleasant memories can be filled with unresolved issues. There is nothing inherently wrong with remembering the past. Rather it’s our inability to let go of our attachment to it that keeps us from being happy in the present...

Meditation


by Donna Jacobs Sife

Personal stories – when teachers tell stories about themselves as children, or as fallible adults, apart from building an intimacy between themselves and their students, their students can also often feel safe to admit to their own fallibilities and internal struggles, particularly if the anecdotes and memories are those of a struggle, a misunderstanding or a reaction to living in a diverse society...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: The value of storytelling for diversity and cross-cultural education cannot be overestimated. Storytelling can build relationships, develop empathy and understanding of cultures, develop language, connect with traditions, heal grievances, impart values and ethics, and speak of difficult things in a safe and accessible way.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Craig Weiner DC

Here is the obvious. If you use EFT yourself or with others, you are using the process of memory. If you are seriously doing EFT with others, if you have not yet, then you will run into trauma...

 

Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Memory - why is it that you might forget where you left your keys yet a traumatic memory from years past keeps rearing its ugly head? If you have practiced Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) on yourself or employ it as a modality in your health practice, you have probably encountered traumatic memories.
Dr. Craig Weiner helps you understand how trauma alters memories in a simple, concise explanation of the neuroscience behind memory. Knowing how trauma is stored explains how random, seemingly unrelated memories arise during a tapping session. As well, Dr. Weiner explains why the emotional flood gate might open when recalling a past trauma.
