In Episode 91 of Fresh Tracks we talk about our brain and how we are designed to react. I found myself yelling at “them” on the television a few weeks ago. Angry. Disturbed at their lack of empathy for others. I experienced a complete disgust of those “other people” as a whole. In this week’s episode of Fresh Tracks, we look at what’s going on behind this anger and the “us versus them” mentality we see across the world today. This leads us to a discussion on brain scans, sacred values, religious fundamentalism and its meaning to us. Is our brain hard-wired to default to this anger and separatism?
I share results of brain research that has been done specifically on religious fundamentalism, sacred values and our willingness to fight and die for what we believe in. Why does this “us versus them” scenario develop in the first place? And what can you, as an individual do to change it? Check out this episode of Fresh Tracks and discover how to physically change your brain to experience empathy, compassion and reason.

A Dive Into Women and White Privilege
In episode 86 of Fresh Tracks we talk about Karen.
The world is in great turmoil. A pandemic. Anger. Fear, and uncertainty permeate all corners of the globe. We are faced with a never-ending stream of difficult decisions to make. In this episode of Fresh Tracks we peek into the dynamics behind the Karen meme that has become so popular. Do you have anything in common with a white woman of privilege bullying others? Social media makes fun of the most extreme “Karen episodes”, and yet she manifests in many, less extreme situations. I believe it can be insightful to examine what role that “Karen” dynamic plays in our own lives in this episode of Fresh Tracks.
I share a bit about the history of the Karen meme and what she represents in today’s world. What’s going on underneath the extreme meanness we see? Might it be worthwhile to spend time introspecting if there is some Karen in you?

Finally, are you building your life from a place of power or forcing your way to getting what you want? Check out the full podcast episode!

In episode 85 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Vincent Genna about the value of using the coronavirus pandemic and the change it has brought the world for our own healing. Vincent explains why we can choose to make this an opportunity for healing and choose to be in a different, better place after the pandemic. We do this by first acknowledging that we want to change and going beyond traditional coping skills to substantive healing.
Sound good in theory yet more difficult to implement? Vince shares that it’s natural for our defense mechanisms to kick-in and try to prevent our healing and he provides tips for breaking down these defense mechanisms. We also discuss the importance of eliminating beliefs that prevent our ultimate healing. Creating Fresh Tracks starts with our accepting what is and leaning into the newness in our life. Being courageous enough to connect to our pains and parent ourselves through the often overwhelming inner hurts from the past are key to creating a more fuller and ultimately happier version of you.
