Intentional Living with Tanya Hale
Learning to advocate for ourselves is a skill that many of us haven't acquired yet, and until we do, we will struggle with self-respect and with having the equal relationships that we desire. When we come to realize that our wants and needs are just as important and valid as anyone else's, we can advocate with more clarity and confidence. Fellow life and divorce coach Samantha Nielsen joins me today in a discussion about what advocating means, why it's important, and how to do it.

Jeff Karow took a stand against evangelical culture in the deep south, and it cost him dearly. Advocating for social justice alienated him from his community, his best friends, and his family. The episode starts out as another great, fun, look at an evangelical school, in this case Moody Chicago, but it ended up being a life-changing experience for both of us. No comedy or music segments in this episode, although I did record a parody song, which I apologize for to everyone except Ed Sheeran. If you have a message for Jeff, send it to email@example.com.

Navigating the complex world of healthcare can be overwhelming, especially when you're faced with the task of advocating for your own needs. However, being an active participant in your healthcare decisions is essential for ensuring that you receive the best possible care. In this blog post, we will explore practical strategies and tips to help you effectively advocate for yourself in healthcare settings. Educate Yourself: The first step towards advocating for yourself is to become an informed patient. Take the time to research your medical condition or concern, understanding the available treatment options, potential risks, and alternatives. Reliable sources such as reputable medical websites, patient forums, and support groups can provide valuable insights. Armed with knowledge, you'll be better prepared to communicate and make decisions regarding your healthcare. Build a Strong Relationship with Your Healthcare Provider: Establishing a strong partnership with your healthcare provider is crucial. Actively engage in conversations, ask questions, and share your concerns openly. Remember, your doctor is there to help you, and effective communication is key to a successful healthcare journey. Be honest about your symptoms, medical history, and any lifestyle factors that may affect your health. This information will enable your healthcare provider to develop an accurate diagnosis and tailor a treatment plan specifically for you. Be Assertive and Clear: When advocating for yourself, it's essential to be assertive and communicate your needs clearly. Don't hesitate to ask for further clarification or request additional tests or referrals if necessary. Describe your symptoms accurately, including their severity, duration, and any triggers or patterns you've noticed. Avoid downplaying your concerns, as this may hinder the understanding of your healthcare provider. By expressing your needs confidently and concisely, you increase the likelihood of receiving appropriate care. Seek a Second Opinion: If you have doubts about a diagnosis, treatment plan, or surgery, don't hesitate to seek a second opinion. A fresh perspective from another qualified healthcare professional can provide valuable insights and help you make informed decisions. Requesting a second opinion is your right as a patient, and a reputable doctor will respect your choice. Keep Organized Records: Maintaining organized records is essential for effective self-advocacy. Keep a detailed record of your medical history, including diagnoses, medications, treatments, and any relevant test results. Bring these records to appointments and share them with your healthcare provider. Additionally, document all discussions, recommendations, and decisions made during your healthcare visits. These records will serve as a valuable reference and ensure continuity of care. Utilize Support Networks: Don't underestimate the power of support networks when advocating for yourself in healthcare. Reach out to family, friends, or patient advocacy organizations that can provide guidance and emotional support. Sometimes, having an advocate accompany you to appointments can help ensure that all your concerns are addressed and that you have a strong support system throughout your healthcare journey. Advocating for yourself in healthcare can be challenging, but it is essential to take an active role in your well-being. By educating yourself, building a strong relationship with your healthcare provider, being assertive, seeking second opinions, keeping organized records, and utilizing support networks, you can effectively advocate for your healthcare needs. Remember, your voice matters, and with the right strategies in place, you can navigate the healthcare system with confidence and ensure that you receive the care you deserve.

One in six American women has been the victim of a rape or attempted rape in their lifetime, but most survivors of sexual violence never report the assault to law enforcement. Although the public conversations of the “Me too” movement raised awareness of sexual harassment and rape, advocates in Minnesota say communities still downplay the harm caused by sexual assault, law enforcement can be too slow to respond and victims aren't given enough support. MPR News host Angela Davis talks about preventing sexual violence, improving services for survivors and why Black women and girls are especially vulnerable to sexual violence. The conversation includes an excerpt from an April 27 conversation with author and sexual assault survivor Roxane Gay. Guests: Artika Roller is the executive director of the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault, a statewide network of organizations working to end sexual violence.

Healthy Habits 4 Life with Dr. Carol Perlman
In today's hectic society, people constantly juggle various responsibilities such as work, family, and social obligations. As a result, taking care of one's health can often take a backseat which leads to serious consequences! Join me today as I speak with Susan Salinger about why prioritizing health is crucial for all areas of life. You can use several strategies to advocate for yourself in healthcare settings effectively! Stay tuned! Here's what to expect on the podcast: What do most women think about self-care? How can individuals break the habit of putting their health last and start prioritizing it instead? What are some common misconceptions or stereotypes about women's health that may contribute to feelings of guilt or shame? How can you get the most out of your doctor's visit? And much more! About Susan: Susan Salenger is the author and researcher behind Sidelined, How Women Manage & Mismanage Their Health. Sidelined examines the many ways in which some women manage and sometimes mismanage their healthcare. (Release date, April 2022) Susan explores how women, typically the medical gatekeepers for their families, tend to be extremely conscientious about taking care of themselves, yet at the same time, inadvertently undermine their own care. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Susan attended UCLA to study English. After graduation, she worked alongside her husband Fred for 25 years at their production company, Salenger Films, which produced corporate training and development films distributed worldwide. Today, at age 80, Susan lives in Northern California to be near her incredible family, which includes her two daughters, four grandchildren, a cat named Max, and a dog named JD (Salenger). When she is not speaking about her book or spending time with family and friends, you will find Susan powerlifting to stay in shape.

Welcome to season 3, episode 12 of the Today is the Day Changemakers Podcast. I am so excited to announce Tamara Sabatino, a successful leader and powerhouse healthcare provider. Having grown up in New Jersey, she always knew she wanted to be in the healthcare field, starting out at a local orthopedic practice. Tamara does it all, from operations business, patient care, to marketing, and dealing with the political aspects of advocating for insurance for patients. She is excellent at negotiating for her patients, specifically applying her skills to the mental health crisis. She credits herself as always having been a vocal person and continues to use her voice for others who need it the most. After being exposed to mental health struggles close to home, Tamara dedicated her practice to promoting the mental health of others. She explains that teachers and administration can only do so much, the system for monitoring children's mental health is broken and by the time the problem is addressed it is almost always too late. Tamara shares her treacherous journey in getting her daughter the proper care she needed to remedy her situation. She found that insurance often got in the way of her child's care, rather than helping it. She even emailed the CEO of United Health Care, who led her down another dead end. She explains that the school, therapist, insurance, and attorneys all proved unhelpful, citing this situation as the reason why children end up on bad paths. Tamara Sabatino is a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and she believes her purpose is to live through this situation so she is able to talk about it. She advises parents to go to the parents of the child that is bullying them directly if they are put in the situation and cannot receive help from the school. She also recommends parental controls on children's cell phones, explaining that social media addictions are a real and serious concern. She specifically uses apps such as Bark, which flags potentially dangerous messages on your child's phone, and Life 360, which allows parents to track their children's whereabouts. To reach out directly to Tamara link in with her via Facebook at Tamara Sabatino or via Instagram @tamarasabatinorealtor.Next week my guest is Rebecca Whitman.

Have you been able to find the support you needed after leaving an abusive relationship? There is often support right after leaving or as you try to escape, but what about as you try to get your life back on track?My guest, A. Garcia shares her story of leaving her abuser after an attempted murder of her and her unborn child and having to advocate for herself in a place where she had no connection. 1000 phone calls later and she finally found an advocate. She shares her healing journey with her children and is vulnerable about the continued healing she is still working through. We also discuss her role in actively supporting survivors so that you do not have to make the 1000 calls to get help.Ms. Garcia is a PTG Strategian, Whole Life Coach, Certified High Performance Coach with a tenacious attitude toward empowering others. Over the past 35 years she's navigated through domestic violence, privacy, safety, vulnerability, and the mindset to endure personal adverse events in life. Her survival of a double attempted homicide while 8 months pregnant (by the father) and the desperation to survive became the catalyst to the foundation of BYIS while achieving an undisputed outlook of independence. Her personal journey of Post Traumatic Growth has led Garcia to dedicating her life in developing transformational programs, various forms of coaching, and establishing a nonprofit to help real time victims of Domestic Violence with real time resources. Her commitment is to provide lifelong transformational habits that can restore your powerful internal sense of awareness and control. One of her personal statements is, ‘You can move a million times, but you live in your head,' which is why some of her laser-focused teachings are on aligning your positive belief system with your actions.

How to Sell Art: The Abundant Artist Podcast
Welcome back to The Abundant Artist, the show that dispels the myth of “the starving artist” and shares how you can live an abundant life as an artist and make a living from your talent one interview at a time. Cory welcomes Wildlife Painter and Fiber Artist Eric Jackson, who specializes in unique batik illustrations of Chesapeake Bay and Mid-Atlantic species, in today's podcast. Eric had had a deep interest in water quality and aquatic life since a young age, especially in and around the Chesapeake region where he grew up. Eric was teaching art in public school when he started selling his art at local art shows in Maryland in 2017. After the 2020 pandemic, he left teaching to pursue his art career full time. In this episode, Eric explains how he conceptualized the One Hundred Shores project, how it connected Art and Ecology, and how it grew in scope – even without much social media presence at that time – to become a huge storytelling project and a successful Kickstarter initiative eventually. Eric also discusses his passion for teaching art, and why he thinks it's important for kids to learn art in school. Key Takeaways: [:46] Cory mentions how fascinating it has been to watch Eric's art career evolve over the years. [2:33] The kind of art Eric makes. What led him to make the kind of art he does. [4:22] Eric is an outdoor person, spending his free time hunting and fishing. How does that impact the subject matter of his artworks? [5:17] People are not really familiar with the batik technique and how the pieces are made. Eric often receives questions on that account. [6:53] Cory wants to talk about Eric's Chesapeake Bay project (i.e. the One Hundred Shores project) as he thinks it's a really good window into (1) what Eric's art is about, and (2) how people respond to his work. [7:09] Talking about the audience for his work, Eric identifies two distinct segments. [9:00] Eric discusses the One Hundred Shores project in detail. How the Chesapeake Bay and its ecosystem are connected with the residents in the area. [11:08] How the One Hundred Shores project connects Art and Ecology, and how that resonates with people. [11:48] How did Eric conceptualize the One Hundred Shores project? How did it evolve from the ideation period? [14:04] Eric gives an example of the stories collected during the One Hundred Shores project. [18:32] How Eric got the word out when he initiated the project. [21:00] Eric launched a separate website for the One Hundred Shores project. Why does he keep it distinct from his regular website? [22:40] How the One Hundred Shores project press release helped spread the word further, and made people and organizations reach out to Eric to learn more about his project. How his earlier lesson with TAA helped him put together the press release. [24:19] Cory asks Eric about the latest status of the One Hundred Shores project. [26:29] Where people can buy Eric's One Hundred Shores project t-shirts from. [28:02] Cory congratulates Eric on the success of his One Hundred Shores project, and mentions that it's a very interesting example for artists looking for starting a project on a greater scale or planning to take their art to a bigger audience. [30:48] After years of making art privately, Eric started showing his work to people only as recently as 2017. [35:05] Eric talks about his love for teaching. [35:43] Why it is important for kids to learn art in school. [39:07] Advocating for “Art for art's sake” and maintaining the integrity of Art as a discipline. [39:53] Why Eric considers leaving teaching his biggest professional decision till date. [40:45] What is Eric looking forward to for the rest of 2023? [44:00] Cory thanks Eric for joining the podcast!

To Be Blunt: The Podcast for Cannabis Marketers
"With cannabis being inhaled directly rather than eating it, a small amount of contaminants can have a lot, potentially more toxic effect in your body than if you ate those same contaminants. So I think it's really important, and I think now the upside is we have one of the cleanest consumer products even with some of the issues" - Josh WurzerWelcome to the latest episode of our podcast, where we delve into the world of cannabis testing and its impact on the infused products category. This episode provides a comprehensive overview of the importance of lab testing in the cannabis industry, highlighting the need for standardization, transparency, and compliance to ensure safe products for consumers.Join us as we explore how testing has revolutionized the industry, making it accessible to casual consumers through accurate dosing and consistent potency![00:00 - 07:27] The Importance of Lab Testing in the Cannabis Industry.[07:27 - 14:09] The Evolution of Cannabis Testing and the Impact on the Industry.[14:09 - 20:53] Navigating the Challenges of Lab Testing in the Cannabis Industry.[20:53 - 27:54] The Importance of Clean and Safe Cannabis Testing in the Industry.[27:54 - 35:06] SC Labs sets new standards for trust and testing certification in the cannabis industry.[35:06 - 42:29] Advocating for Quality and Transparency in the Cannabis Testing Industry.[42:29 - 49:13] Navigating State-Specific Regulations and Testing Requirements in the Hemp Industry.[49:14 - 56:30] The Challenges of Testing and Regulating New Cannabinoids in the Cannabis Industry.[56:30 - 1:03:33] The Importance of Greater Oversight and Testing in the Cannabis Industry.[1:03:33 - 1:05:37] Cannabis and Hemp Industry Stabilizing, Slowly Trending in the Right Direction.Josh Wurzer has operated cannabis testing labs for over 12 years and has been a cultivator in the medical system since the early 2000s.

Here at The Forgotten Initiative, we get to support incredible volunteer leaders called TFI Advocates who are leading local foster care ministries across the nation. Joining me for today's episode is one of our TFI Advocates, Tess Dykstra. Tess has been an Advocate for Cobb County, GA since November 2021, and she is an incredible leader! In addition to her role as a TFI Advocate, Tess is a foster parent, mom to two boys (one through adoption), and works remotely in logistics and supply chain operations. Tess is going to give us a look behind the curtain of what it means to be a TFI Advocate. She shares more about what a TFI Advocate does, what skills they might need, and her own story of getting involved. Too many in the foster care community feel forgotten. They feel unloved and even uncared for. It's our passion to change that reality. Coming up in May, we are opening up the applications for additional TFI Advocates. We only accept applications twice a year, so I want to invite you to consider if this role might be for you!

Susan Reynolds has over 20 years of experience in digital wellbeing, youth leadership and mindfulness. In 2019 she co-founded LookUp to discover, empower, and mobilize youth leaders who are taking action to raise awareness and design a healthier, more inclusive, and responsible digital world. Susan leads workshops and facilitates panels to educate and empower Gen Z to find and implement their own solutions, and she's spoken globally on the topic at conferences in Copenhagen, London, and most recently in Saudi Arabia.In this conversation, we approach technology with a wide lens, exploring both the promise and the peril of the internet, as well as the ways that different age groups engage with it. Susan poses the idea that part of the teenage mental health crisis could also be viewed as somewhat of a spiritual crisis, the longing for true connection that they try to get from the interconnectedness of the internet, yet these avenues are falling short of helping people to feel deeply connected and fulfilled.And the collective mental health status of our young people proves the power of the digital age—a conglomerate of apps that have captured and run away with their attention, self-awareness, confidence and peace.Honestly, we don't come to many conclusions here. We simply share perspectives, hers from the professional angle having had a long career in tech and education as well as a personal angle, with a deep spiritual sense that's continuing to emerge and guide her more strongly in her work. She shares about the new book she's working on, LookUp Live: The Book, a collection of stories about young advocates she partners with who are making a tangible difference in the lives of their peers and exploring what it means to be human in the 21st Century.Bottom line: Young people are stepping up. Despite, and perhaps because of, the issues they've inherited, there has never been a generation with as strong an ethos of purpose and advocacy as Gen Z. They won't stand for continuing to lose their friends to suicide and shootings. They won't tolerate ignorance. They won't accept policies that prioritize corporations over their own well being.They are choosing to speak out, and that's what Susan gets to witness every day in her role at LookUp, a perspective that allows space for the grief, anger of the situation yet an empowerment that leads to lasting change.LookUp.LiveSupport the showConnect with Feathered Pipe Ranch: FacebookInstagramSubscribe to our NewsletterCheck out 2023 Retreats

I hope that this conversation made you curious about how you can use the ancient tools of yoga as relevant sources of liberation in the modern world. After all, it's all yoga. If you're looking to tune into a podcast episode that is all about yoga in Sri Lanka then this is the conversation for you. Support the podcast: https://www.patreon.com/wildyogatribe Tell me more about Serena Burgess Serena Burgess has been teaching yoga for 18 years and has led numerous workshops, retreats, and yoga teacher trainings. She is the founder and yoga studio owner of The Om Space. She is certified in Acro Yoga, prenatal/postnatal yoga, and more! She has crafted courses and workshops about the intersection of Yoga and Activism and is passionate about her work as a doula and as an advocate for better birthing experiences for women in Sri Lanka. Some of the courses that Serena has created are the Inner Guru Training (co-founded by Eva Priyanka Wegener at Sri Yoga Shala, Personal Resilience Course, and Conscious Courage. Serena teaches weekly and leads intensive at Prana Lounge in Colombo. For the skimmers - What's in the Yoga in Sri Lanka episode? The intersection of yoga and activism The economic crisis of Sri Lanka: The “Canary” Philosophy of yoga: using ancient tools as relevant sources of liberation in the modern world What yoga teachers teach in a class is a fraction of what students teach Advocating for better birthing experiences for women in Sri Lanka The only Doula in Sri Lanka What to expect in the Yoga In Sri Lanka episode of the Wild Yoga Tribe Podcast Serena Burgess came to yoga while living in the UK at the Shivanada ashram there. After receiving her certification, she moved back home to Sri Lanka where she opened her own yoga studio, The Om Space, in Colombo. While the pandemic caused the studio to shut down, Serena expressed nothing but gratitude for the shift of her energy and intention. Burgess's practice of yoga also intersects with activism. She became involved in the Aragalya struggle, which was a people's uprising in Sri Lanka. Burgess's involvement in activism started when she began feeling that something was not right in the world, starting with the separation of children at the borders in the US. She feels that a lot of people are living with a slight feeling that things are not quite right due to the economic crisis and other issues affecting the world. Yoga has helped her engage in the generative story and see the good things that are happening in the world. Serena Burgess believes that these ancient tools can be utilized in our modern world to face the challenges we come across. Serena has also formulated a workshop called Conscious Courage, which is aimed at allowing people some space and time to figure out how they would like to show up in the world. Serena believes that yoga is not just about practicing asanas but can be integrated into daily life. After all, it's all yoga! Curious? Tune in to the whole yoga in Sri Lanka episode!

An interview with Francesca Schuler, President of the California Fitness Alliance.And then the long term vision would be hopefully we could get some funding to run an ongoing public service campaign that's all about kind of movement for mental and physical fitness. And that could take a form of a variety of TV ads, billboards, etc. Just inviting people, educating people, building awareness around the importance.
