    Claire B. Willis: Opening to Grief - We all lose people and experiences we hold dear; nothing we love lasts forever. Grieving is part of being human. Grief can hit us quickly like a bolt of lightning or it can silently creep up on us before we even know we're in its grip. Many of us try to deny what we’re feeling in an attempt to stay positive or stop the pain. According to Claire B. Willis, to heal from loss we cannot dissociate or refuse to feel the depth of our despair. She contends that genuine grieving requires us to be present with the anguish and to be open to the pain of our heartbreak, and even embrace our sadness. Claire talks about how we can open up to grief in order to find peace. Claire is a clinical social worker who has been working in the fields of oncology and bereavement for more than 20 years. She is the author of, Lasting Words: A Guide to Finding Meaning Toward the Close of Life, and co-author of Opening to Grief: Finding Your Way from Loss to Peace. Elizabeth Miles Graham: You Know What They Say - Elizabeth Miles Graham experienced sexual harassment and discrimination when she was working at a Wall Street Firm.

    David Kundtz: The Art of Stopping - Most of us live every day overwhelmed and exhausted. We are always on the go trying to balance work, family, friends, and everything in between. Often it feels like our usual methods of coping no longer work. David Kundtz says that it’s time for something new – stopping. According to David, stopping is a gift to yourself. Knowing when to breathe and regain a clearer vision helps give you a fresh perspective and an inner balance. David has enjoyed several careers, including 19 years as a Catholic priest, 20 years in the practice of psychotherapy, and over two decades teaching courses on managing stress and emotional health, and writing. He has authored seven books, most recently, The Art of Stopping: How to Be Still When You Have to Keep Going. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Tim Shriver: The Call to Unite - At the beginning of last year, the world was faced with a public health crisis the scope of which had not been seen in a century. As COVID-19 rapidly reached every corner of the globe, chaos and fear ran rampant. Yet, as the pandemic worsened, billions of people decided to respond with love, care, and compassion. Even though we were separated physically, people were connecting and reaching out — to neighbors and strangers alike — more than ever before. Tim Shriver, chair of Special Olympics, saw this as an opportunity for people to come together, and organized the Call to Unite event in May 2020, which featured nearly 300 participants, raised more than $85 million dollars towards relief, and reached tens of millions of viewers in all fifty states. He discusses his new book, The Call to Unite: Voices of Hope and Awakening, which captures the spirit of that event and features words of hope, wisdom, and inspiration from all walks of life: doctors, nurses, activists, religious leaders, former presidents, and artists.
