For further study of the Mind Voice, I suggest A Thousand Names for Joy by Byron Katie and The Power of Now by Echkart Tolle.
For further study of the Heart Voice, I suggest The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brené Brown; and Yale University’s course: Human Emotion taught by Professor June Gruber (available on YouTube) for a greater understanding of evolutionary psychology.
For further study of the Body Voice, I suggest Heal Your Body Heal Your Life by Louise Hay, The Secret Language of Your Body by Inna Segal, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D.; and Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection by John E. Sarno.
For further study on the Soul Voice, I suggest Inner Work: Using Dreams and Active Imagination for Personal Growth by Robert A. Johnson; the 1988 PBS series called Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth, hosted by Bill Moyers; and the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. Poetry suggestions: “Lost” by David Wagoner, “The Journey” by Mary Oliver, “Love After Love” by Derek Walcott, “House of Belonging” by David Whyte, “The Wild Iris” by Louise Gluck, and “Beannacht” by John O’Donohue.
We discuss the practice of feeling our feelings with self compassion and self kindness. Listen to some of the mistakes Pam and I have made and how instead of finding peace, we ended up creating more suffering. We talk about a new tool that we're using on and off the mat that's radically changing the way we interact with our emotions and with life itself.
Join us for a discussion on guilt, shame and basically the thousands of ways that we make ourselves feel bad on any given day. Listen in on why Meadow is simply fed up with guilt and refuses to live with it any longer. Learn why guilt is a prison guard and how to free yourself from its bondage.
Pam Clark and Meadow DeVor discuss the basics for setting boundaries.
Meadow DeVor and Pam Clark discuss the voice of the mind.
Sara Dill and I discuss one of our favorite thought inquiry techniques: The Work of Byron Katie.

Tam and I discuss the mystical nature of our bodies and the wisdom we can uncover through body inquiry.
We talk and hear about boundaries all the time, but what the hell are they? Why should we care? In the first part of a series on boundaries, Laura & Meadow define in the simplest terms what boundaries are, what they're not, and what happens when we don't have them.
In Part 2 of the Boundary Series, Laura and Meadow discuss the first signs of boundary violations, why anger is such a vital emotion, and how to start protecting your own space when other people are living all over you.
In Part 3 of the Boundary Series, Laura and Meadow discuss the flip side of boundary violations: containment. There are some super sneaky ways we violate other people's boundaries including gossip, triangulation, "helping" and actual, (ahem) trespassing.
