Podcast Episode 21:Projection, with special guest Steve Barcia

November 27, 2017

This week Jake welcomes returned guest Steve Barcia from Zephyr Wellness, to discuss deeper on the topic of Projection.

Projection is a common attribute of paranoia, where people project dislike of themselves onto others such that they believe that people around, dislike them.

Projection helps justify unacceptable behavior, for example where a person claims that they are sticking up for themselves amongst a group of aggressive other people.

Projecting thoughts or emotions onto others, allows the person to consider them and how dysfunctional they are, but without feeling the attendant discomfort of knowing that these thoughts and emotions are their own. We can thus criticize the other person, distancing ourselves from our own dysfunction.

Podcast Episode 19: Listen To Your Body, with special guest Lindsay Garrison

November 13, 2017

Jake brings us another exciting episode today, with special guest Lindsay Garrison, a Marriage & Family Therapist and Co-Founder of Zephyr Wellness in Reno, Nevada, where they discuss deeper on how to reconnect with yourself.

When was the last time you really sat down in silence and listened to your body? Life is ever changing, we have plans but life always has other ones. We become so consumed with everything we want and we begin to lose focus of ourselves.

We always think of the mind telling the body what to do, but the communication goes the other way too, from the body to the mind. Being self-aware of how our body and our surroundings affect how we think, learn, and behave can have big effects on our ability to learn, perform and feel our best. We just have to know what they are.

Podcast Episode 18: Connection and Intimacy with special guest Jesse Lott

November 6, 2017

Jake had the honor of having Jesse Lott from Zephyr Wellness, who is a marriage and family therapist and also an alcohol and drug counselor, as a guest on the show, to discuss deeper on the topic of Connection and Intimacy.

Connections with other people form our “web” of relationships made with other people. These can be made face to face, online, over the phone, any means of communication, you name it. People’s networks opens up countless new opportunities they wouldn’t have had otherwise, which can range from just having some food at lunch with someone to the immense offer to travel overseas.

Intimacy is about knowing someone deeply and being able to be completely free in that person's presence. It is an emotional state that is often reserved for just one person.

Connections and Intimacy in your relationships are very rewarding. Remember, the more effort you put into your connection, the greater the satisfaction and benefits you will receive.

Podcast Episode 16: Addiction, with special guest Steve Barcia

October 23, 2017

Jake had the honor of having Steve Barcia from Zephyr Wellness, who is a marriage and family therapist and also an alcohol and drug counselor, as a guest on the show, to discuss deeper on the topic of addiction.

People with addiction have an intense focus on using a certain substance, such as alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over their life. They keep using alcohol or a drug even when they know it will causes problems.

Addictions do not only include physical things we consume, such as drugs or alcohol, but may include virtually anything, such abstract things as gambling to seemingly harmless products, such as chocolate. Addiction may refer to a substance dependence or behavioral addiction. Many of us can use substances or become engaged in activities without any significant problems, but in some people, however, may experience damaging psychological and/or physical effects when their habit becomes an addiction.

Podcast Episode 15: Surprise

October 16, 2017

Surprise is an individual’s psychological and emotional response to experience that does not align with that individual’s paradigm and expectations. It is the sense of astonishment, wonder, or amazement that is caused by something sudden or unexpected. The experience of surprise varies with the importance of the outcome, as well as beliefs about the outcome. 

Jake explains how the concept of surprise is relevant to many aspects of human behavior. It also affects beliefs about other events. When a person takes an unexpected stance that violates his or her self-interest, the person’s arguments are surprising and quite often more persuasive.

Podcast Episode 14: Contempt

October 9, 2017

In this episode Jake discusses the emotion of Contempt. Contempt is an emotion felt towards others that puts the person in an inferior, lower status position. The other person is regarded as being less in some way that the person feeling contempt considers important.

Empathy and contempt are polar opposites.  Empathy involves caring about others feelings and concerns.  Contempt is arrogance, "I know best", disregard, dismissal and no regard of other’s concerns.  Empathy nurtures relationship bonds; contempt invites relationship problems.
