Ep 137: Clock Opera I We have cancer, now what? I Holistic Healing
This week we got a very important phone call. Aga Kehinde called us all the way from the United Kingdom to talk to us about dealing with cancer, communication around the disease and how coaching can be useful.
ARTIST OF THE WEEK:
Clock Opera and their amazing song "Carousel"
CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK:
We have cancer, now what? How do we communicate about it, what are the challenges and what’s important now? How can coaching be helpful?
BULLSHIT OF THE WEEK:
For some reason as human beings, we think we know what our lives should look like. ( this is the concept of embracing uncertainty in a compassionate way and how this is helpful in a medical condition like cancer)
WISDOM OF THE WEEK:
“Freedom is instantaneous the moment we accept things as they are.” ~Karen Maezen Miller
‘’ When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves’’ - Victor Frankl – an absolutely lifechanging book he wrote: ‘’ Man’s search for meaning’’
FROM THE LEFT FIELD:
Alternative or Holistic Healing Methods
A book Aga referred to: ‘’the radical Reemissions’’ Kelly A Turner
It’s a fascinating study of thousands of cancer survivors and reports on the 9 themes they all have in common.
