23. Eight words that can get you through all this GLOBAL GASLIGHTING.
The 8 words are: Yes, this is more. And, so am I. This episode unpacks what those words mean to me, and how they may strengthen you. 💪🏾✨ Gaslighting is a form of psychological manipulation, and it is wildly active right now. (The term was inspired by this 1938 play.) Controlled language is the most despicable form of oppression... ironically veiled as virtuous.

21. Showing the work in math, compassion-fatigue + triaging emergencies. (A HEALING PERSPECTIVE) 🖤💛
In this episode, I share my opinion about race relations, and bridging them. Humanity's trained belief in government as an agency of goodness, is really delaying worldwide suffering. Hopefully we remember and recognize THE GOODNESS IN EACH OTHER, so we can unite and resist planetary enslavement! We must think and talk ABOVE politics, because the political realm is one sticky glue trap of distraction, distortion, and misdirected Life Force. No one wins in that glue. And the more you wiggle around on it, the more STUCK you become. Reject all roles and narratives that ask you to divide against your own self, and to depart from your own good sense and wisdom.

2. Featured Voice :: EMAH SHAE :: "Inner Healing"
This episode reveals our first Featured Voice, EMAH SHAE. (Emah means 'mother' in a lot of indigenous cultures.) She has practiced contemporary architecture for over 30 years, and now during her semi-retirement, is an avid researcher in indigenous healing methods, and in particular as inspired by Dr. Sebi. Emah is a native of Jamaica, and you will hear patois as she speaks about: some traditional expectations of Jamaican women;  the cost of trying to fit in -- both in corporate life, and even family life; the social and cultural shame that often accompanies being a sensitive person; finding the courage to resist European standards of beauty, and allow the naturalness of her hair; and the empowering decision to be, accept, and love... who she truly is. "I don't want to be what I'm not, anymore." Contact Emah at:  IG:  @emahshae FB:  Sharon Herbalist Ross

1. WANTED: Sound-Selfies From Brave Alchemists ⚗️
This episode speaks a more beautiful world into existence. The show is called "The Work of the Empath," so I clarify what I mean by "work" and what I mean by "empath." What is the true core and function of our being? (Ontologists, where y'all at?) I introduce a term and practice I call "Asynchronous Bonding." (If it's always been difficult for you to schedule things, and you prefer to "go with the flow," you might really like this. Heck, you may already be doing it!) The background song mid-way through is "Compassion," by Meavy Boy. Email your .MP3 Sound-Selfie (10-minute minimum, 30-minute maximum) to "podcast at empathicwriter dot com." In your recording, please share stories or art that shows how you 'use' empathy in practical and actual ways. Please be sure to clearly include your name, website and social media handles, so that your business or beloved cause can be seen and celebrated. I'll also add those details in that show's description box, of course. The Good-Hearted need to be easy to find. :-) Help this pleasurable project along by sharing it with a resonant friend, or two, and leaving a (hopefully) supportive rating. Thank you. 💐
