How Joe Biden Just Helped Make Putin Dictator for Life
"While you were probably having an enjoyable weekend, you might have missed the fact that Joe Biden might have communicated one of the most clear and actually is anything but clear. One of the biggest foreign policy blunders of the last 30 to 40 years. Joe Biden went to Europe and he went to hopefully try to unite the NATO countries and to try to bring forth some form of peace. But it said Biden did the exact opposite. You see, here's a good rule of thumb. If the United States government was serious about anything, they should just not have Biden talk. Okay, he's president, they implemented him. Massive shenanigans, massive cutting of corners in the 2020 election. We've gone into all of that and you guys can listen to our conversation with dinesh d'souza to go more into that. Okay, he's president. That doesn't mean he has to talk. Biden being president is one thing actually giving him a microphone is a completely different thing. Who's the handler for Joe Biden exactly? Is it Ron klain? Is it Jen Psaki, probably not, Valerie Jarrett? Whoever's doing the handling of Joe Biden? They need to make sure that he no longer is able to speak publicly because he did exactly what Putin would want him to do this weekend. So Joe Biden went to Europe. He went to Europe and gave a series of speeches, and there was one 15 second portion of his speech that has gone completely, not just viral, it is now policy. Now, we've talked a lot about the dangers of regime change. We've talked about a lot on this program how, when the United States is involved in regime regime change, more times than not, there are issues, power vacuums that follow, then there is actual stability. That when you remove Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, for example, you get slave markets. You get Civil War. You get a fracturing of a country.
The Growing List of People Who Were Wrong About Spying on Trump Campaign
"You want to hear a little Montage that Derek my producer put together that's not hard to find. I give you Adam Schiff, I give you Valerie plame, the former CIA officer, and I give you the former director of national intelligence, James clapper. Let's take a stroll again. Down another memory lane. So that it was all essentially a deep state conspiracy. There was spying on the Trump campaign all of that was debunked by the inspector general. But I think attorney general Barr's rather casual assessment that the FBI spied on candidate Trump is a little too loose with the facts. Well, I think he's deliberately spinning the narrative that we're by he's a victim of the deep state spying on him or spying on the campaign, which is not the case. It's not the case. But what are you going to say today, clapper? What are you going to say today, Leslie stahl? What are you going to say now?
Scottsdale Moms Targeted by Secret Dossier Speak Out
"We have with us two moms who are fighting for liberty and freedom Amanda ray and Valerie Shannon. Get those names right? Yeah, good. Thank you. From Scottsdale, Arizona, so our audience is sort of briefed and versed on this whole drama. And partially so because I called out Jan Michael Greenberg for being a creep like months ago when I spoke at the because I just was like kind of a weird guy. And you guys have been on the front lines of this for a while. In Scottsdale, moms that were concerned about your kids education and you came out and spoke out about that, but in the recent weeks and now days this has become a national news story of what we have seen in Scottsdale. So let's just start from there. Let's start first kind of why were you concerned about your kid's education and then how did you get your how do you get into this? Do you ever think that you would be kind of in the midst of a national news story like this? No, not at all. I think like all of us we were not really paying attention to what was happening in education. And then when COVID hit and our kids came home and we started to get a bird's eye view into the classroom of what's happening. And then I realized how much control that school boards have. I didn't know a single board member's name. So when I found out that they had the ability to keep us learning, online, we started researching, and we discovered Jan Michael Greenberg, who was a 24 year old boy, unmarried, no children in the district had run unopposed and elected to make decisions for our children. And so, we tried to figure out what's his, what's his reason here? He was listed as a politician on his Facebook page, and I was like, well, this is nonpartisan. Why is he here? So we started to advocate for parental rights and transparency in the district and moms have instincts. And I think we all just like there's something not right here. And so we followed that and we just pulled that thread and then in August, in an unsolicited email, Jan Michael sent a screenshot of his desktop to another parent, as he was harassing her and calling her anti semitic and a white supremacist and told us that we were dangerous. Because because of a George Soros implication. Yeah, a screenshot of something that was said in a private group, he attacked her. We've always kept it to his issues and his behavior on the board, but he pulls the race car. Of course he does. Yeah, and he's a white male so he's an impressive, unless he pulls a race car, so he's got to pull something. So that's how it started. And he sent us the screenshot. We actually didn't follow it for a long time, because who's dumb enough to send a URL without password protecting it? So we then typed in the URL and I clicked on the link and physically got ill seeing photos of my 8 and ten year old, photos of me, photos of my homes and property records, background checks on 47 different parents. And it was yeah. I mean, we all just I was
Jennifer Horn and Sebastian Discuss the Power and Magic of Radio
"Welcome back to one on one with kra LA's Jennifer horn. So let's tease this out because everybody's listening to the show why, because it's not just they want news. It's not just that they want information or the breaking news, they actually also want they actually love the medium itself. So let's delve into that for a little bit. You have taught me a great deal along with one other person who is also a mentor to me and that's John bachelor who I consider to be the master of the long form. I love long form radio. I dedicate one hour of the show. The last hour of the show, like this one to want to long form. And he helped me understand is you did too. With radio. Well, you just said it in the beginning. You said, you're talking to people at the most vulnerable, they're most private they're in their bathroom. They're at home they're making breakfast for their kids. So it's a different meal. Number one. And secondly, and I look at Russia and others who really led the way. Because it's auditory, there's no fancy visuals that you can use as a crotch. It's very intimate and it is about establishing a relationship, which really, if it's done well. And I think this is what you and your co host grant stinchfield and other great hosts to it's a friendship with the listener. Isn't it Jennifer? Absolutely. You know, I had a lot of coaching all throughout the years. There are a lot of people who go into talk radio consulting and there's a woman named Valerie Geller, who I think is, is phenomenal. And she's written a book about radio. And her most helpful piece of advice is she said, when you're doing a radio show, stick an empty chair in front of you. And just visualize the person that you're talking to. And so I think what's different is when you watch television show. And you see people even in cable news they'll say, our audience, or all of you at home. That's not very personal. Let's just mean you're one of the thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people, maybe who are watching, right? But when you're on radio, when you are talking to you, can you believe this? What should we be doing about this? How do you feel about vaccine mandates? It becomes very personal. It's a one on one connection. You're not speaking to the masses in radio, or at least you shouldn't be. I think in good talk radio you are speaking directly to one person.
"valerie" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"Don't do something stupid by bringing up kobe to people in a way that would cause them to not even want to come. You make a very good point. But i have to ask you. You said and i can see that point with close friends with family who hasn't asked the question guilty particularly when it comes to my friends. I don't feel that it's my business. I feel that. I'm overstepping the line by inquiring about their vaccination status gale. Here's the deal. People are more sensitive today and angrier today about the two opposite opinions than even before it has become in some cases Just a volatile look deal ring. It's a deal breaker and just like walking into a restaurant and going to a big football game. Do we see a lot of masks now. People are angry. I mean. I watched the as an example My husband and i enjoy watching college football. You've don't see many mass and you see stadium full of people so people are not caring anymore. I nineteen fatigue. It is it is but back to your question and to get an answer If you're going to have people that you are concerned about not being vaccinated and you are as an example. They are fully aware that probably they will be put a little bit further apart. Maybe if that's something you said up ahead of time and that's the point that's the point. Set it up ahead of time if you're going to ask then Just let them know know. We're going to have some social distancing areas and So we love for you to come. Valerie's sokolowski is author of. Do it right of business. Leadership and etiquette expert with valerie and companies six forty two now northern colorado's voice one of the three one thirteen ten kfi k. a. All right valerie. So you jennifer aniston. And i don't do what jennifer aniston does necessarily. She is not a role model. Or trendsetter for me but Ditching a her friends Contingent her friends that refuse to get vaccinated. I'm just not there. I'm really just not there. And i you know i respect everyone's boundaries and i respect The science while not the junk science but the science behind cove in nineteen but once again. I maybe i won't be around them. I am fully vaccinated but again as you pointed out we've been so whip side over the past eighteen months. Well vaccines work will then. Why are we so concerned about the unvaccinated. I get it the breakthrough infection but once again. It seems to me that those in leadership positions. And i'm referring to dr anthony. Perhaps it just keep their powder dry and just wait until they issued these far-reaching mandates only to have them reversed oh my goodness absolutely yes well. And here's the other thing that has been scientifically talked about and that is does the mask make a difference right yup.

"valerie" Discussed on This Week in Photo
"Hey folks in this episode of the podcast. We're gonna find out why valerie's are then the intrepid street photographer is no longer hitting the streets. Virtually welcome back to another episode of this week and photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson. Today show. I have the pleasure of sitting down with a longtime friend of mine. Fellow podcasters photographer. Educator valerie zardan valerie. Welcome to the show. How the heck are you frederick. I'm doing really well. I'm actually so happy again. Because i'm actually back on the real streets but you're right i don't hit the virtually any more. Were the for the folks that don't know hit. The streets was the name of your podcast and sadly i'm using the word was the name of your pockets. Although it's not gone it will live on in perpetuity. Right people can still go listen to several seasons to keep paying every month for the episodes to be to be available currently do yokota kind of like valerie. All the episodes quickly. Because i may not pay forever. Pull him down now. Because valerie's valley gonna pull episodes down to make inept teas from them in them way but for those that don't know hit. The streets was really popular podcast. That valerie was that she created was the host of in and brought street photography to thousands and thousands of people who hung on every word and sadly a couple of weeks ago. Valerie you decided to no longer do the podcast. So tell tells why why. Why is hit the streets no more well it was okay so it's been eight years of podcasting without taking a break. I went from st focus and a lot of listeners. Remember st focus back eight years ago on the numbers that these numbers are said. So don't tell me then And then i'm i switched to a podcast under my own brand from one week to the next and and then it was nonstop for another nearly two one hundred episodes and Then i figured on take the summer off. I ever that i took two months off podcasting and then i realized in august that i did not miss it off and that just the thought of going back to my normal travel schedule where i'm on a plane teaching a workshop somewhere in the world every month pretty much and then having enough episodes in the can before the fall season and so far just was not appealing and So i said well. I could quickly find four guests for to record next week before i get on the plane or i could not do it and i decided not to do. It was as simple as that. So i and i don't i don't miss it. I miss the people and actually you know. Sometimes you feel invisible when your podcast or very few people will send you know i mean you. You'll get people sending you little notes like. Oh this is so great. Change my commute bubble. But overall you'll hear more from complainers for people love it and then i stopped and i released the last episode and then i received seriously one hundred messages from people who said what are gonna do. Now we love. We never miss an episode. I'm like we're we're all those people so you don't. It's like nobody complains about the train. That's on time right. That's exactly so. I felt kind of bad because i was enjoying it and i knew the people listen in one hundred fifty three countries and the numbers were good. Although i wasn't really concerned about numbers i really did it. Because i i loved it and then But there's also the part of you know finding new guests every week or every other week and and recording ahead of time and guess who don't show up or they they decided last minute all well. No let's do this next month. Because i'll have something to sell or something and then it just got to be like a. Do i really want to do this. And so i decided now. This was never one of my top top. Photography gigs does was always kind of something on the side. And i'm so busy with other things and like the podcast. The podcasting was always a way to give back to the community. And i gave back gave plenty for eight years and now i feel okay. I kinda need a break. Because i i want that time to be spent doing other things that i'm i'm always running or is running and and so now i have that little bit of time. I have more time to be the guest on others podcasts. Which actually. I was turning down a lot of them. Because you know when your podcast her the last thing you want to do is to be a guest on another podcast and so now i have time to do that and i feel like i have a lot to share so i'm actually really excited about that. So thank you for having me on the show. You're welcome thank you for coming on the show. It's interesting a lot of what you're saying is resonating because yeah i mean if you you know it can become a grind man all for all the reasons that you mentioned you know notwithstanding guests you know scheduling and flaky nece and time zones and equipment kerfluffle. You know all that stuff you know it all comes in. It's hard to be part of the podcast in game. But you know i'm really you know if i can be so bold as say i am proud of you that you have never been the one to shy away from change and even yourself and bold change like like Like part of the folks. That may not know you don't know may not know that you have chosen to shoot with fuji film. Series camera solely. That's it for eight years. That's right you go out there all this. This huge wonderful body of work that you've created is all with with a fixed lens camera. You're not into the whole thing. And all these lenses and lights and tripods drones and three hundred sixty and all stuff. It's that camera right all my money in the bank. Not in gear. Yeah yeah so tell me about that. Joint ventures not in gear. It's let's that's exactly what i want to switch to. I wanna talk about that so this latest adventure from podcasting so we closed the door. We're onto the next chapter of valerie Not to say that. You won't reopen the podcasting chapter at some point in the future..
"valerie" Discussed on Chachi Loves Everybody
"That took a long time and that was an ongoing process. And still to this day. I still think we all struggle with it. Great advice and was there any time where you call your parents and you just were. I've had enough. I wanna come home okay. So the first time. I got fired and i called my modest and ma. I lost my job and she said well what did you do. I said nothing. We did nothing. They changed the format. They were broadcasting this and now they've decided to go quote unquote in a different direction and they have fired eleven people and my mother was shamed she was completely shamed and she couldn't tell her friends and didn't tell anybody in the family and she was mortified in my father was like how could this happen to you. You know you work hard you do. Well you succeed. How how could they had no clue of it. By the fourth or fifth time station had changed format or i had gotten fired or you know it happened. My mom was telling her france. Oh it's no problem. You know valerie always does really well. In the demographic. She's always gotten another job is she. Never been out of work for more than a month. So we're not too worried about her. She knows her stuff so it took that transition of being able to convince my parents that your only job security in radio for many many years was your ability to secure your next job and so if you do good work and you make sure you have good relationships with people that you work with and also people that apply for jobs if you treat them with dignity and honor even if you do not hire them you know you respond and you make sure and like a garden caretake all relationships because that kid who wants a tour of the station today may actually hire you in five years so to be nice to everyone and try to open your heart to all kinds of people and to listen to people you know..

They get what i know this to be as an ass weapon either by hand a switch from a tree or a belt maybe even extension cord. She was a single mother doing the best she possibly could. Parents often mimic what their parents did to them. I'm not here to judge anyone's parenting talking about those kind of spankings definitely gave me flashbacks.

A European University Adds An Esports Education Platform ft. Richard Withers of KAMK
"Led to the development of this new. Kind of Esports education platform for the University. Yeah. So so firstly, thank you for having me. I appreciate it off. Any opportunity to discuss the topic of Esports education especially in this day and age. I think they're sort of a a stigma surrounding the topic of a sports education. Especially with certain people in the industry, wanting to put out some less than valuable should I say opportunities for for up-and-coming talent, where you're not really getting a valuable education and you're putting a lot of money into this. So, it's really important for me to come on these sort of shows and just highlight that there are some some great players in the scene who are really providing some valuable education for those who want to pursue a career in sports. As you said I'm the E Sports development manager here at kind of University of applied sciences. We're definitely not the largest here in Midland but when it comes to sort of gaming and he Sports, we've developed quite a unique ecosystem surrounding that from the University universities Inception, quite some time ago. Now far before I join a gym One, they've had a well-known and well-respected game development. Degree offered in finished. Some of the graduates of went on to the largest game development, companies in the world, like supercell Rovio soft. So there was already that amazing gaming culture here that University, but when we were able to be one of the first, if not only the, the first in the world to offer a full bachelor's degree, these Sports business, of course that further exemplified our, our ecosystem here surrounding gaming and Esports. So although we are a smaller University on many of our students are focusing on the topic of either game development or e-sports. So it's definitely a very exciting opportunity for us. The degree itself is practical degree, of course, not during these times with covid-19 and everything, we've had to transition to an online format but fingers crossed going into the upcoming month. Autumn all of our students will be back with us on campus. That said, has been for the past three years, which is amazing. Especially as our course heavily focuses on the Practical elements. So getting our students that valuable hands-on experience and allowing them to grow their Network pool. So, of course, that is made much easier. When you're able to actually come in person off, we're constantly having industry experts. Come to speak to the students. And there are many student owned and operated organizations, like constant GT, which you mentioned. I'm the CEO off. So, I sort of act as the connection between the students and the upper management here at the University. But that organization allows the students to sort of get their hands in an industry that they do. It's sort of an all-encompassing brand. They do everything you can imagine from organizing large-scale events, they create digital content, they host, and manage, various Competitive Edge. Stores in csgo Valerie, Etc. So a little bit of everything.
Why Should We Care What Valerie Jarrett Thinks?
"Up Valerie Jarrett. He's probably making a fortune you know, doing something spewing Hayden Marxism. They found her Valerie Jarrett on M s LSD. She's on there today. What a lineup. They have their over at M s LSD. Even a bigger freak show than CNN. Although I mean it's close. And they want to know if she favors mandating vaccines. Now why do we care? Valerie Jarrett supports mandating vaccines. She had her way She'd be mandating that everybody vote. Democrat. But she's all for it. So it's important that we hear from her cut 10 go. I'm all for mandating it, but I know here in this country. It's tough to mandate things, but I think what we can do is doctor saw said and say, Look, if you want the independence to make your own decision, fine. We're not going to let you come to major sporting events are schools losing money, even though cities are not requiring vaccines with students come back on campus, and so we're balancing Our rights of freedom with public health, and we don't need your help on balancing anything because you're out of bounds. You're out of balance your unfair and unbalanced. Valerie Jarrett. That's what we all turned to when we went into. How do we balance freedom with vaccines? Any other things you want to mandate, Valerie. What else do you want to mandate?
'Jaws' Expert Valerie Taylor Tells What It's Like to Get Bitten by a Shark
"A debate brewing over sharks Should shark bites be called attacks or just encounters as beachgoers. Witness survivors getting rushed to the hospital viral video posted just this weekend showing a hammerhead shark in Panama City Beach getting a little too close to swimmers. Some wildlife experts are pushing to rebrand interactions with the ocean's apex predator, calling them bites, negative encounters or incidents instead of attacks. I would say any time we're painting any wildlife as interested in harming humans. We're reducing people's positive feelings about them. People's desire to see them conserved and protected and increasing the likelihood that people see them as Villains or antagonists. For years. They've been the bad guys in movies like Jaws. We're gonna need a bigger coach and the Meg about a massive megalodon shark. But experts say in reality shark bites are rare and that using language like attack gives a false impression of intent. Page winter who was bitten by a shark in 2019, losing part of her leg. Told all Robin Roberts she didn't see her encounter as the Sharks fault. This situation has urged me to learn more about sharks. I didn't do something directly to the shark, but I was in his water. You know, That's his house. But Dave Pearson, who survived a shark attack in Australia and now runs a support group called Bite Club says avoiding the word attack downplays the very real danger. We can't keep sanitizing things to the point where we It feels like when you're the person involved.

Officials are taking these encounters seriously in Cape Cod, where at least 50 confirmed great white shark sightings have been reported this past month on the APP, shark tive, itty. Researchers deployed acoustic receivers to track great whites to keep people safe. It's a really valuable way to find out more about the movement of great white sharks. That's important information for the public to know when they are going to the beach. You know where they might be more likely to encounter a white shark. When you're at the beach. Look for signs of sharks. If there are seals in the water. There might be sharks nearby, because they eat seals. If there are birds flying in the air, that means they're looking for fish that sharks are also probably looking for. So if you do go swimming, try to go in pairs in groups Just be smart. Generally and also remember that unprovoked shark bites are exceedingly rare. There were fewer than 100 globally just last year at CBC's will review coming

Can you tell us what patriarchy stress disorder is and why we're just now learning about it. Yes women have been oppressed for thousands of years on the patriarchy. Our bodies did not belong to us. We didn't have legal rights over our children over our own decisions. We couldn't make our own money. We couldn't love. We loved a we couldn't get a divorce etc etc oppression is traumatic and now we know from the field of epigenetics. That trauma is genetically transmitted so that laid the foundation for my discovery of patriarchy stress disorder. Which is into generational selective trauma that creates an invisible in the barriers. to women's ultimate success happiness and fulfillment.

So i had a guest coming over on sunday night. They had been sequestered and they felt comfortable coming. I felt comfortable in them coming. We certainly were going to have social distancing and yet. This was sunday now about noontime that day. which yes. Maybe that was a little late. But that's okay. I got a call from her and she said valerie. I just had to call. I'm concerned. well. I knew right away. What shirts going to happen. But here's how she positioned it. She said you know my husband. And i are going to be going to pick up his mother who is in her eighties for the holiday and he's not concerned but i got to thinking goodness this is not the time to take a chance. How do you feel and she deflected it to me. And i simply said you know the word you said concern is all you need to say i understand. Do not worry about it. We'll get back together at another time. But it's how she positioned that very well honestly to the point and there were. There was no way that i was going to or should take it personally. You know. I have to wonder too. Because there seems to be a propensity for many to come up with an excuse you know a little white lie about. Oh had something come up. Can't make it because we're just for some reason we seem reticent to just do what your friend did and use the word concern. That's really a good point. And you know what ally is ally and people. Nope and you're making excuses. There's nothing better than being totally transparent and respectful and again. This is not a time that people should be taking it personally. One way or the other. This is a health issue. And it's a real issue and unfortunately our country is still spiraling so if to be expected in.

I'm not going to finish this, so don't worry about that. I'm going to go as far as I can go maybe about ten miles and then I'm going to drop out the. Don't you worry?

I can't believe I'm GonNa do this, and then I was hitting the last few miles. It's it ends last. Part of it is on the Verizon Bridge which is huge bridge, and this isn't a show and I kept pumping my legs and I was like I'm GonNa, do this I'm going to do this?

I'm doing this I'm doing this. And when I crossed that say this line. It was the most triumphant. Day of my life, because not only did I finish the marathon. It represented finishing and crossing the finish line with cancer. And I remember. My friend said to me. You Know Valerie I.

"That's what Duggan. Teaches his monks, are you? There's a some people can sit cross, legged, but with both lake sort of on the Mat. Kneeling is helpful position. Some people use a bench which is fine like a small prayer bench to kneel on. A chair as also fine it's. it's not about enduring pain. Yeah in fact. Finding posture. That's conducive. With as little pain as possible conducive to this awareness, concentration practice, really being present following the breath. That's what I would go for so. I once heard. The Abbot of Sambo's in teaching an introduction does into some college students out in California and he taught posture breathing stilling the mind. At the end that one of the young students said well, which is most important. City there. I think he's going. Say stilling the mind because that's challenging. And he said posture. So that first element of finding this posture. Somehow. Your knees. If you're on a mat, are are on the Mat. so there's a tripod. Between your you know your. Your sits bones and your knees, and and then you can find this. Balance With the upper body that allows the chest. The head to gradually rise up. You know there. There are a number of fairy helpful introductory. You can Google Online and get lots of instructions about that various postures. If you're in a chair feet flat on the floor back a little away from the chair There's a a hand, position and blue dread that. We use in some bows in. That's very common That is right handed in the laugh lap. To resting in the lap, left hand on top, and the thumbs slightly touching, so it almost forms. A kind of a heart. The thumbs are very near the the naval or the HARA. I've come to move very much. Appreciate that position though I know, there are others. And Mrs Simply. For someone who feels Having struggling with the shoulder, sometimes we'll suggest just laying your hands in your lap I mean it's it's. It's not A. You know it's a very helpful for. But not at all a straight check. so then. Breathing is just following the breath. When I sit I. Take a few I i. sit down I Iraq a little bit. I find my poss- Chirac little. Left, right back and forth from back so I really find that fulcrum that sense of century. And then I take a few deep breaths to begin. And then I just saddle into. Natural breathing. Breathing in I, if in less than terribly congested breathing through the nose. With the mouth gently closed so it's very helpful to notice the. If there's any tension in the jar the throat let that open. It's very helpful to kind of do a scan re just balanced. I remember so many times. My teacher, saying fully relaxed fully alert. Over time the breath naturally seems to slow down. It naturally seems to deepen. But. I'm not. Necessarily making that happen. I just pre. And then stealing the mind. Thoughts arise. sometimes this is like an to sitting like a mountain. And the thoughts pass by like clouds. So the invitation is as soon as you notice a thought. Rather than trailing after it or sticking to her, adding to like. You, know beats. Putting beads together. On a piece of string. You chasse as soon as the thought. You noticed thinking just returned to the breath, so you just release it. like a cloud. Passing by. In this time especially. But it's not unique to this time. Sometimes, people get very quiet and things come up. If it's. If it's really important matter One Way. To deal with that is to maybe have a pad of paper next Hugh, and actually jot it down so that you won't spend the rest of the period of sitting ruminating on that, but you acknowledge this is something to tend to affect. Some people get great ideas while they're sitting. So rather than having to sit there, remembering the idea or developing the idea, you just ride it out. Returned to the breath. If. Sometimes anxiety! Comes up, and it usually comes in the form of constriction. Somewhere in the body. Just to notice that and breathe into it. Again I wouldn't discursive -ly analyze it. That's not the practice. But just. Allow some space surrounded. and. Again it it. It can be thought after sitting. You know it can hear other. They're very helpful ways to help to explorer and help us address anxiety at what might be pointing to. But, on the cushion Just to notice the construction and return to the breath allow some space. Breathe into it. You know some teachers and I. I really appreciate. It just flooded with loving kindness. Dokan in his universal instructions said. Take backward. Step and shine the light in. Some translations say learn the backwards step and shine a light in. That light itself at shining through that constriction and it will us. My experiences, it will dissolve. At like this phrase.

Know before there was any chance to have some expectation. I was sitting and Had the sense while. Sitting of I guess you could say an apparition a vision some this figure. White sort of figure appeared before me. And Even in that context and having actually been. away from the church, not out of rebellion just. Circumstances for some time. What what came to me in that moment of this? Facing this figure was That's Christ. Almost immediately. I heard the words. This is my body. Utterly transfixed. This is my body and after I don't know a few moments. I'm not sure how long. The thought came. That's blasphemy. This is my body. So immediately, it all went away. and Fairly soon. Yeah.

Ever about forty people so is a big circle. This room and down at the end was this altar. Where there had been a long a photo, a picture in a frame of my teachers, teacher, Monaco and Roshii. and He's you know. Someone I've had such respect for I had read about him in the three pillars of Zen just the fact that he was my teachers teacher. Great respect.

But all the while these tears kind of cunning, running down my cheeks. Quiet? And By the time I got to the Matt right outside the door in my lap was wet. But the last thought I had was I'll never get this. Did, what what is Moo? This question, this deepest question this sort of. Opening question. The fundamental matter. Where that came from now as a teacher, it's so common I hear over and over I'll never can't this. And there's something about that. Surrender That is. Part of the path. I went in and I sat down in front of my teacher in front of Ruben and. He said what's happening? I said nothing. And then. I suddenly recalled. And said well I was sitting in this figure appeared in heard these words and. Then I had this thought it all went away. I walked by the you know I just recounted, and as I did that, it opened up.

With people endo aware of what's going on without being swamped by that. Yeah. So. Yeah extraordinary time. Yeah. emailed you about you, but basically I'm just trying to get perspectives from different people and specifically. Through the Lens of the the good in the beautiful. and I like to start out kind of getting those by asking. If you remember when you were growing up. What would give you a deep sense of wonder about the world? But a lovely question. I feel very fortunate. Then I was bored into a context. Where that was, there was space for wonder. My. Mother was an educator Piano Teacher. My father was a theologian. There was. From early odds somehow perhaps for that. Context perhaps. Stat genetic makeup. I? I lived in the world with a sense of wonder. And with a with also. Being drawn to sort of the deepest questions, even as a young child. and. You wondering at. A with amazement at the beauty of the world, and also quite aware of of suffering and wondering why. Why so? but Perhaps, because of my context nature. And Music. And human love. Human relationship. We're all sources of. Of wonder also I mean. You know growing up in that context I remember. Very young child. Sitting on my bed in the dark at night. You know. What is God. AD. I was hearing. You know in my faith context about this person. You know the. The Christ Jesus Christ. And as as a little girl, you just. Just walk into my room and show yourself. So what happened? There was this great wonder at mystery. Also like. Just. It seemed. There was an expectation that this would be shown and. You know I remember period night after night of waiting and strangely never. I can't remember feeling dashed or disappointed or angry. EW It just somehow what came out of that was a sense as I grew that The the questions themselves. The seeking itself. Had A value in a life to it. that. While! You know it's genuine seeking. It it has. That they're real. Place of value might be and very asking the question. that. That's where we have our life. And that it was okay that this mystery was big enough to contain all of that and. Kind of continue to draw. Draw said. How old were you when you were starting to think through? I remember the evenings. Nights about five. Five five. Remember that continuing. My father was a professor at Stanford when I was young child. Religion Department and then moved the family to Nashville, Tennessee. which was tough? You know for kids. To join the faculty at Vanderbilt Divinity, school, so I can kind of track. Being eight and still. Having experience of waiting in the dark. See you now have PhD in Biblical interpretation. You're also zen master in the sandbox Cuban tradition.

"I I think the biggest thing that I'm hoping to start saying and I think I see this so much because it's in part. My work is that we are looking at chronic illness. More like a disability issue And not like A. I don't know like a a tourist thing I felt like sometimes. Sometimes we're not thinking about chronic illness when we're looking at policy and legislation and things as it relates to disability policy and protections and. I hope things like this podcast and listen to some of the other interviews and I think it really helps to highlight. How much of a daily? I mean you'd think that would be defined in in use of the term chronic right but I think because of the flares because of the ups and downs right and for a lot of people just the not quite so evident nature of a lot of chronic illness. That it's really easy for that to get overlooked in a lot of our discourse that I just I really appreciate people like you. That are putting these stories out there because it helps the people that do the work for that. I do to show why this is important beyond some of kind of what we have our standard idea of or definition Of what we think disability as we think it looks like yeah. I know I work with people because I- disability policy. I work with disabled people all the time and how frequently other people who have had. Maybe maybe have congenital disability or some other kind of physical disability had just never really considered the wave for example stress might affect somebody's disability because that's not necessarily something that exacerbates their disability right or different things like that and it's I think more comes out of a like a naive space but so to them it might not be as important to talk about overtime restrictions or something like that because extra work doesn't cause anything worse for them where some sometimes I feel like I'm killing myself to work fulltime job right and and so those kind of discourses are able to happen when people hear these kinds of stories and so I think hopefully the conversation continues to go that way. Because there's there's things that have to be looked at a little bit differently because chronic illness different. Yeah Yeah and one of the things I don't even this is something that I'm still trying to develop better language about. But it's like I think so. Many conversations about our about static accommodations and. That's the thing right like okay if we put in a ramp if we put in an accessible bathroom if we put on closed captions like boom done. We fixed that problem. We did the thing. It's accessible now and those are big things. I'm not trying to say that we don't need and want to keep working on them. And I'm also not trying to say that those problems are solved across the board and everything is good for people who need ramps and closed captions. Because I know that that's not true but because that's like such a common probably cultural understanding of what an accommodation looks like. This is exactly what you're speaking to is. Like there's this whole other world accommodations that people with chronic illness typically need and some of them overlap but a lot of them. Don't and it's like even. Yeah having a flexible flexible schedule. So overtime's a great example. But if I'm going to have like I haven't been working working in two years and I'm very functional. Now I think I could probably go out and get some contract work but I need to be able to work lying down. I need to be able to work lying down. Like eighty percent of the time and so that's not a thing that people think of as an accommodation right. It's just not and so and that's only one small example because sometimes I would ask people that like people who I talked to. Who Don't work like what do you think it would look like for you to be able to work. And it's hard for people to even imagine sometimes and stuff because these combinations don't even exist in certain spaces so yes. I'm hoping remote work really as remote work becomes more popular that that kind of those kind of accommodations become more accepted. Even if it's kind of accidentally like if you don't know that I'm laying on my couch doing my work. My work is still getting done then. Maybe it's not visible but when we're having those conversations with our friends who also are managers responsible for hiring people than they know. Oh Hey I know somebody who has to work like that. I think I know you can get your worked on doing that right now. And it's a valid way of working right because yeah that that's that's me too where it's like days just really really simple things. Sometimes when I get when I'm flying really bad. I have hard time speaking for example and really confusing for some people how one day I can. Just be going and talking and you know kind of gift of Gab. Kind of thing and then the next day I can't get word out at all fan and it's not static right you know but as people see that you're able to work through that hopefully that opens the door for more people who really who are currently not able to work. Who really want to and could be able to with the right understanding With WE WE CAN. No call dynamic accommodations static. There we go. I like it probably solve. So we're ready. Yeah Yeah but I think that's my. That's my optimistic Yeah I love it I love it. I love like I do. I see a lot of people out there working on this stuff. And chipping away at it. In different ways of trying to educate employers trying to educate people about the kinds of accommodations that they can ask for trying to change legislation. Like there's so many different arms to this and I am also hardened by the conversations that are happening not yes. I don't think that we need to put silver linings on everything or like forced optimism. But I think it's true there's a lot there's a lot more conversation and movement about this and that is excellent. Yes yes I agree possum. Well thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me.

"They were just kind of not interested in the kind of gravity or the situation or did you find yourself saying a bunch of different people who are all like. That's not really something I can help you with both so I started getting the migraines. We had your pediatrician or or what have you. But that was one of those things that because it was all people could obviously see. There was a problem. My parents were very worried but nobody knew what it was. It was one of those things where we're going to okay. We're GONNA pass you to. We want you to see the optometrist. Nothing's wrong there. We want you to see neurologist own kind of that one was a specialist specialist to specialist kind of thing Yep and then I also went through a couple like therapists and psychiatrists but that was more of a a hand off thing. I went to a counselor and that didn't quite work so they're like she needs to see a therapist which I guess there's a difference there. Yes there's so many small distinctions within the therapy world. Yeah Yeah so then. I started seeing therapist and when I finished with her. She was like okay well. She gave me a diagnosis and wanted me to start taking meds but because she was a therapist and not a psychiatrist she wasn't able to prescribe great. So then I pass up psychiatrists which was a whole other thing but just because of religious background in my family. My parents didn't really want me to take meds for for mental illness reason so I never actually really went to the psychiatrist And so there was a lot of doctors and they weren't necessarily talking to each other but I think at least. The mental health thing was more of like a a progression almost a doctors whereas the migraine thing was more will. We don't know what's wrong so we'll send you somewhere else right someone who has different questions even if they are also not relevant questions right right whereas once. I got older. That was much more of a just like either complete disregard or sometimes just legitimately being honest like. There's nothing else I can do with you. Jim For you and where you're seeing multiple of the same kind of doctor looking for different answers. I think in my youth it was more specialists or or progressive type of the treatment. Yeah beyond the scope of what I can help with kind of stuff right. Yeah Oh God then just throwing your hands up and saying I don't know yeah. Yeah nothing's wrong lose weight. Yeah Yeah Okay so now you are. Nineteen and towns like pain starts. Yeah so of course. The fatigue thing had already always been there which I always assumed that I sleep. Well right I mean you don't sleep you're tired. You know I remember my first. Your trip very distinctly. Because I to this day I feel like I've never been in pain like I was that day. It was a Sunday afternoon at everything. It'd been fine. I was hanging out at home. I was getting ready to leave the house so I went to the bathroom and it was like as soon as I sat down. It felt like somebody had just sliced my stomach in half with a knife and I was in the house. I was renting a room at the time I was in the basement and it was like two floors outside to tort bites of stairs to get up to get to like the the mid level of the house. I guess where where my friends and roommates were and I remember like pooling myself up the stairs trying not to cry and Just laying on the couch and my friends being like what's I mean. I literally just walk downstairs to go to the bathroom. Fine and then suddenly was doubled over in in so much pain and one of my friends called her mom. She didn't drive. She called her mom and said. Can you take us to the hospital? Valerie's and a lot of pain and so they took me to the emergency room and they did all sorts of tasks they had me do not. They didn't ultrasound. They did all kinds of blood. Work and urine samples and found nothing. And what they had told me. What they had kept saying was will stomach. Pain is really general. And it's really really hard to find the cause which I mean made sense. You have a bunch of stuff in there. Were a lot of important. Things Live. Where a lot of important things are in there and it was a very like General. I mean I really. That's the way I kept explaining it to the doctor was. I felt like I was being cut in half for midsection. And so when you have that big of an area it could have been heart lungs. It could have been a GI. It could have been my reproductive organs. You know there's just so much going on but they didn't see anything in imaging and this was my my first step into the or I guess if we talk about childhood second step into the here some opioids fell better treatment in the Er. They gave me think Mike at him. Maybe said take these. We're going to set you up with a GI specialist But here are these for the time being. I ended up back in the E. R. I think two days later because even the the bike was not helping the pain. They ended up upping the does doing some other something else with the prescription. I ended up at work for about a month. Essentially I would wake up in the morning. The pain take pain meds and fall asleep and that that happened for about a month before I could get in to see the doctor which is a long time and longtime a longtime to be not able to work with no explanation. I think that would be difficult. And if I hadn't had really really good a really good like short-term disability policy that kicked them right away I would've been in a lot of trouble I mean I in that way. I was protected in a way. A lot of people are in because our short-term disability kicked up after like two weeks I know some people whose policies don't kick in for like two months you know and so I was able to get paid for that time. My job was to care for that time. And that's a benefit that a lot of people would not have had But there was also no way I could work and so I there were times. I tried to go back to work. I actually tried to go back once. I think within that first week and they almost had to call an ambulance on me to get me out. Because I couldn't I just couldn't fit there and work. I was in so much pain and so that was about a month I finally got into him in Dos to see a Gi doctor who gave me an industrial city. They thought maybe I had ulcers came back still. Haven't found anything. He tried me on some kind of experimental methods. That didn't do anything and that was kind of the start of the pain that never ended You know at this point. Eleven years ago and that was the start of the repeated. Your visit my doctor knew I was having these problems but because of wait to get in and lack of treatment option what it essentially came out to being was when the pain got too much to bear. I'd end up in the ER. They were do some testing. I'd leave with a prescription for some kind of opioid or strong painkiller. And then next time. The pain got too much to bear. I'd be back in the Er and no matter what doctor. I went to no matter what happened. This ended up being how it was treated And it was rough one because you're pain and you don't know what's wrong and then after a few times you start getting the the looks when you go into the er the questions about you being a drug seeker. And it's like the only reason I'm here and getting opioids because nobody will provide any other treatment option right. I have no other recourse. This is what you all are having me do right. Yeah and then. Your doctor told you that that is the way to go. And the people in the are typically are like mad that that's where you are. It's an impossible situation. Yes snide remarks and looks and not to mention I mean like I like before. I was very lucky to have insurance. But they're still like I don't know what one hundred dollars copay for the Er visit versus a you know a twenty dollars co pay for a visit with my primary carers being told will you're just going.

"I can't imagine you know that would be very hard. That would have been a very a very big Gift and a lot of maturity for a twenty year old. Do you know what I mean to to stay present but I think that that's really beautiful unimportant because so many times we become wrapped up in the eventuality of things or the worry about the concern and instead of just really living in that moment and just enjoying that person right then right there and you can't stop what's going to happen so there's no point like I know it's easier said than done but really looking back on it. Oh my God I spent so much time freaking out like every doctor's appointment every phone call from the doctor you know just is totally overwhelming. Now that I'm thinking about it now I can't imagine Second question if you were transitioning from this life and you wanted to leave behind some gold nuggets of wisdom inspiration. What would they be? I would say this sounds kind of radical but I always tell people like do the opposite of what everybody else is doing. Slow it down. You know the quiet meditate. Just take everything down a notch because we live in such a fast paced world for always like pushing pushing pushing it's so unhealthy and again it takes us out of the present moment. So that's what I would like to leave behind just like calm down. Take it down a notch and look around you and see what works for you and what doesn't and do the opposite of doing guys you know it's it's it's not healthy for us it. It doesn't bring happiness to be running around like nutcases. It just doesn't it causes anxiety takes us away from our true selves our best selves. So I'm a big fan of just slowing down.

"This need of sharing knowledge and skills Swiss with other aspiring photographers. While I I think you either born teacher you not and I. I always wanted wanted to be a teacher. I went to school Undergrad to to be a teacher in languages. Not Not Photography and then I changed my mind something else in Grad school but then when I became a photographer and I'm completely self taught Working for clients wasn't doing it for me and I. I was a commercial photographer for a long time and then people started asking me. Why don't you just bring people to to to Paris? You know to be Photography experience and cultural and then. That's how I started a Nigel's Joe's love. There's nothing I love doing more than than opening people's eyes and teaching Teaching about about vision because it's so much about learning to see it so not about what you shoot with So it's really about opening people's People's eyes and getting and seeing students year after year who come on different adventures with me. See how much they've improved and there's so much more it's all about teaching people to be more discerning and not Not Machine Gun it. I want my students to really. We know what they want to say before they pressed the shutter and a not not rely on the random shot and that has really really showed great results. I see my students who have been working with for a while Shoot so few frames now. But the rate of keeper for has gone up so much compared to the days where they would just shoot shoot shoot shoot crossed their fingers that something would come out. Yes something would come out out. But it's lucky at that point and nobody wants to settle for the lucky shot. There should be intent. It should be intended every every time. You press the shutter. Yeah so this is wonderful. You definitely have this gift you know of of Inspiring them you know sharing sharing knowledge with with your students. Students doesn't happen that you also learn from your own students. Oh are all the time you know. It's it's so fun when we do critique critique work and I see shots thank you I was there and I did not see that and it's just so beautiful and and it's funny because it's not off it's not from the most experienced photographers have been blown away. Hey by the total beginners. Because I think because they don't let the gear get in the way they focus on seeing thing and not on you know their settings and it's all about seeing so often the the real big inner will have that gift of not being bothered by the technical part And they will. They will see better so that that always blows. It's my mind and also not not influenced by a preconceptions right exactly. Yeah Great Volley. What are you working? Are you having a Christmas.
