Manage episode 294344606 series 2763880
Dr. Nicole LePera is a holistic psychologist. She received traditional training in clinical psychology at Cornell University and The New School of Social Research, and she started the Instagram account @the.holistic.psychologist, which has become wildly popular. On it, she shares her tools for transformation with an ever-growing community of #SelfHealers. Most recently, she is the author of a book called How to Do The Work: Recognize Your Patterns, Heal from your Past and Create Your Self. It’s a great book -- I learned so much from it, and I think there is so much joy that comes from healing ourselves.
In today’s episode, Nicole and I talk about all of it -- dealing with trauma (big T and little t), how to heal ourselves using all sorts of easy tools (jump to 24:35 for a conversation about singing, gargling, and the vagus nerve), setting boundaries, and Nicole’s Vitamin Joy challenge for us all. This is a powerful show. I hope you take a lot from it. I did. Enjoy!
