Despite Childhood Trauma, Parents and Kids Can Transcend Fear and Return To Their Authentic Self

Despite Childhood Trauma, Parents and Kids Can Transcend Fear and Return To Their Authentic Self

July 23, 2021

Terri Kozlowski helps us understand that children are born unafraid and how to keep them fearless.

Terri Kozlowski lives in Georgia and just published her first book “Raven Transcending Fear” in February which is part memoir, part self-help book. 

It's her raw and personal story of childhood abuse and diving deep into her terror before ultimately getting comfortable with fear and transcending it.

Though Terri had loving people in her life, her mother was abusive and enabled others to traumatize her. To get drugs, her mother allowed strangers to assault her 11-year-old body sexually. She then left her and her sister alone on the streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Terri’s childhood left her filled with fear until she embarked on a spiritual journey and learned the skills of empowerment, which have allowed her to transcend the fear and regain a connection with the Divine.

Everyone is born fearless and knowing who they are and what their purpose is.

However, life experience or abuse may instill fear and break the connection with our authentic selves. Through this memoir, readers will go on the journey with her as Terri moves from a life ruled by fear to fearlessness.

Terri shares with us why she believes "Children aren't our possessions."

We all come to this earth knowing who we are, knowing who we are authentically meant to be and have a purpose in life. Then, we come into the unknown...our family. There is something our family is here to teach us.

Terri is married with a son and grandchild, discovered her Native American Alaskan roots and is a passionate certified life coach, empowerment coach, and artist.

Live Q & A with Dr. Borba (Questions from Parents and Teachers)

Live Q & A with Dr. Borba (Questions from Parents and Teachers)

July 16, 2021

A few months ago, I hosted a virtual book club for a month with teachers and parents. We read and discussed four chapters in Dr. Borba’s book called “Thrivers” - The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine. Including 7 Teachable skills that set happy, healthy, high-performing Kids Apart.

We read about: Self-Confidence, Empathy, Self-Control and Optimism.

And...Dr. Borba joined us for one of our meetings and answered our questions. I thought you would love to hear this one of a kind interview with her. We loved having her join us! 

The book club was amazing. Teachers and parents were sharing their insights around the chapters we discussed. We were inspired by each other. We found a place where we could share, learn and grow together. There was something really special about it. I loved it so much, I’m going to launch another book club in the next few months. Stay tuned if you are interested to join me.

In 2019 I took two courses through Mindful Schools and began teaching students in my school their Mindfulness Lessons. The kids responded really well to these lessons, that I wanted to share one with you in this episode.

Parent Teacher Conferences: Quick Tips for Parents with Dr. Ray Queener - What Questions to Ask

Parent Teacher Conferences: Quick Tips for Parents with Dr. Ray Queener - What Questions to Ask

June 3, 2021

Do you ever wish you knew the right questions to ask at a parent teacher conference? What if Parent Teacher Conferences were comfortable and easy for you and you walked out feeling really great about your child and their progress in school? Wouldn't you love if someone gave you questions to ask your child’s teacher? When things are going well and when things may be a little rocky. Well, I have just the answer for you! 

Dr. Ray Queener recently retired as Superintendent in Minnesota and is one of few superintendents who was never a school principal. He’s a father of three, and likes to hunt, fish, golf and read. Currently, Dr. Queener is a senior consultant for Teamworks International, a coaching company for school and district administrators. Today he is on our podcast because he knows exactly what’s it like when you have to meet with a teacher for a regular parent teacher conference and maybe when you have to meet under not the greatest of circumstances. 

I invited him on our show today to help you the next time you have a meeting with your child’s teacher. Maybe you get an email from your child’s teacher saying they want to meet with you and your heart skips a beat? What happened? What did my child do? Or, maybe you have parent conferences coming up and you are secretly dreading it. Well, after talking to Dr. Queener, he was sharing with me ways to think about and plan for your parent conference that I think might help you know what to say to your child’s teacher in a conference, questions to ask to get the results you both want: your child to be successful, thrive, grow, love school and to become life long learner!

Melody Miles helped the Foundation launch a campaign to eradicate malaria only ending up stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, exhausted and burnt out. She got rid of everything but her suitcase and smartphone and traveled the world asking people, “What is Freedom?” 


She came back with three answers that she shares in this episode. She invites us into a journey of Soulcation. Where we prioritize SoulCare, Rest, and Play for a season until we can figure out what we really want.

#015: Dr. Gominak - Anxiety, Depression, Sleep Disorder, AND MORE Due to a Lack of Vitamins D and B

May 19, 2021

Imagine a world filled with people pain-free with mental illness, anxiety, depression and psychosis a thing of the past. Medical illness is reduced. Medication use is minimized. Dr. Gominak believes, “See your doctor once a year, heal your body every night. 

 

The world epidemic of sleep disorders AND MORE is linked to Vitamin D deficiency!

 

Dr. Gominak also says that autism is linked to insufficient deep sleep.

 

The global struggle with worsening sleep is linked to reduced sun exposure, says Dr. Gominak.

 

"See your doctor once a year. Heal your body every night." - Dr. Gominak

 

Given back enough time in deep sleep and the necessary raw materials (D and B vitamins) the brain can make up for the deep sleep that it missed and develop normal social skills even into the teens and early 20’s.

Not a morning person? Dr. Gominak says that’s due to a sleep disorder.
