Season 3: Episode 7: Patience, Jedi Master

 

Another series of medical twists and turns sends Archer into surgery. This time, due to a serious sinus infection. As Louise prays the rosary, she contemplates miracles, the potential for transformational healing and the spiritual holy water from Lourdes, France. In this episode of Blink of an Eye, join Louise in exploring the paradoxes of crisis, the brain’s reactions to trauma and numbness, Louise’s thoughts on love and neuroplasticity, and with her youngest sister, Lillian, in sharing memories of the creation of a healing sanctuary in a hospital room and why it matters for medical staff. Louise also shares some unexpected encounters that may have you considering your various friendships as well.  

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Lillian Phipps Johnston, Louise’s younger sister from Chicago. Lillian had a large part in creating another healing sanctuary, this time in Atlanta, complete with posters, his art and other contributions from loved ones.

Kathy Armstrong, a Financial Advisor with Heritage Financial and dear friend. She returned to Louise for Archer’s healing what Louise had given to her years ago for her own, the holy healing water from Lourdes.

Deidre Provosty Jasmin, Louise’s close college friend and one of the Atlanta Angels, who came to visit Louise as Archer was undergoing another complicated surgery. She and Louise speak about the story behind the rosary Dede pulled out of her purse, and the powerful moment of prayer in the hospital waiting room.

Season 2: Episode 6: Healing Sanctuary

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_11_apj7o.jpg

When Louise’s sister Lillian Johnston arrived in Atlantic City with her tiny backpack, Louise felt a pang of relief, of release. Her sister had arrived on a whim but helped create a healing space around Archer and Louise just by her presence at a time when the family was feeling powerless as the medical staff was running out of treatment options. In Season 2: Episode 6: Healing Sanctuary, Louise scans Archer’s hospital room and realizes it could be transformed into a healing sanctuary, a spa-like experience for Archer. She reflects on power and looks back at how the healing sanctuary was created and the ways it rippled out and positively impacted her own psyche and the work of the medical team around Archer.

In this episode, you will hear excerpts of interview conversations with:

Lillian Johnston, MFA, Louise’s younger sister, former art faculty at the Art Institute of Chicago, and faculty at DePaul University Art Department, and currently the art teacher at Crow Island School in Winnetka, Illinois.

Join Louise for Season 2 of Blink of an Eye: Episode 6: Healing Sanctuary: August 17. Day 13. 

Listen in afterwards to this week’s companion Trauma Healing Learnings episode for new understandings on trauma and tools to navigate your own trauma healing: Trauma Healing Learning: Episode 6: Healing Sanctuary.
