David Bedrick, Revisioning Activism: Bringing Depth, Dialogue, and Diversity to Individual and Social Change

David Bedrick

David Bedrick

If you're feeling pulled towards some sort of activism but aren't sure what, join us here! David Bedrick helps us broaden our vision to include how the social/political world impacts the inner lives of people, how dialogue across diverse viewpoints can impact hearts and minds, and how psychology can play a role as a social-change agent. 

Bedrick deconstructs racism by looking at divergent views of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He deconstructs sexism by critiquing the diet industry and the way women feel about their bodies. Bedrick brings this same psychological eye to understanding societal problems (e.g., gun control, addiction), national celebrities (e.g., Robin Williams, Lance Armstrong), and popular psychology’s failure to create sustainable change. He provokes critical thinking, feeling, and dialogue.

It’s a daring call to empower activism and see ourselves as individuals intimately woven into a web of relationships and social issues.

A psychologist with a deep love of science, he never expected to learn a technique called “channeled writing,” connect with Jordan on the other side, and become convinced that in the heart of pain exist things he never imagined. “In the same way Jordan helps me when I’m afraid or full of doubt, your loved ones are watching over you — in dreams or feelings or direct replies — if you ask.” Find out how to ask and listen!

Ginette Paris, Heartbreak: New Approaches to Healing - Recovering from lost love and mourning

Ginette-Paris_edited-1-1-300x285.jpg

Look at your broken heart with the curiosity of a naturalist, as you would pay close attention to your pet, to understand what is going on.

The pain of mourning and heartbreak is neurologically similar to being submitted to torture. There seems to be only one way to end that agony; neurobiology calls it an evolutionary jump and psychologists call it an increase in consciousness. The whole brain must re-configure its connections and its thinking about love and relationships.

Lori Pye, PhD, joins us to talk about Ginette Paris' book Heartbreak: New Approaches to Healing - Recovering from lost love and mourning. A wider definition of love and a deeper understanding of its psychology will free you of the obsession for the missing partner and will teach your heart to love in a wiser manner.
