Being Well Podcast

with Dr. Rick Hanson and Forrest Hanson

  • We all want great relationships - ones that are fulfilling, loving, stable, and fun. This is the first of two episodes focused on becoming a 'great relater.' Today Forrest and I focus on understanding our individual attachment style, and how we can work through our personal material.

  • In the second episode related to the pitfalls of self-help, we explore how individuals and environments can manipulate others by making them feel like something is wrong with them.

  • Dr. Stephen Porges joins Forrest and me to explore his Polyvagal Theory, which explains how we can use the systems of the body to completely change our relationship with stress.

  • Do self-help environments force us into inauthentic happiness? And how can we move away from the false front, and into more authentic expression? Today is the first of a series of conversations with Forrest dedicated to some of the self-help community's pitfalls.

  • We're halfway through a very strange year, and it's a good time to take stock, check in with ourselves, and establish some new commitments – even if they’re as simple as being kind to ourselves. When things happen *to* us, as they have in many ways this year, it’s easy to feel helpless. One way we can reclaim our experience of agency is by finding where we *do* still have influence over our outcomes. And that’s what Forrest and I explore in this episode: how to start anew under the circumstance

  • Is it possible to "do no harm," and should we even try? In today’s episode, Forrest and I explore what it means to do no harm, and the resources that can allow us to do as little as possible.
