Season 3: Trauma Healing Learning 7: Healing Trauma through Acupuncture (with Dr. Janice Campbell, DOM, LAC, ADS)

Copy_of_blink-1024x512--2au6fy.jpgLast week, we joined trained acupuncturist and healer Dr. Janice Campbell on a journey through the many facets of somatic touch. In this episode, we plunge into the themes of the power of intention and attention for healing the body. We learn that when a strong mind-body connection is achieved, our life possibilities are endless. Listen in for some mind blowing insights for quadriplegics. We learn about Dr. Campbell’s personal healing experiences, as well as those of some dedicated patients. Listen in to the miraculous epiphany that led Dr. Campbell from stage management to acupuncture! This fascinating interview runs the gamut from hangover remedies to pinpointing trauma through involuntary, bodily movement. Accompany Louise and Dr. Campbell in contemplating the body’s response to trauma and the body’s organs that store our past experiences including the ‘the kidney hold.’ And, as it turns out, the heart is just as powerful as many of us believe it to be.

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.

Trauma Healing Learning 6: Healing Trauma Through Somatic Touch (with Dr. Janice Campbell, DOM, LAC, ADS)

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-7ho2q.jpgAt some point in life, many of us are tasked with the personal journey of addressing past trauma. We often find that the road to mental wellness is paved with roadblocks, as the body physically holds onto previous life experiences and traumas. In this Trauma Healing Learning, hear how a form of gentle touch greatly impacts the lives of patients and even heals old scars. Somatic healing practitioner and licensed acupuncturist Dr. Janice Campbell discusses the mind-body connection and how laying a hand on certain areas of the body can enact significant physical (and mental) change. This practice is even useful for those who are paralyzed or amputees. Join Louise in exploring the world of intention, attention and ‘The Kidney Hold.’ Learn about the ways in which body-bound trauma is expressed through physical movement, and the somatic healing methods, including Somatic Touch, which allow the body to release internal distress.

Season 3: Episode 6: Like An Archer And His Arrow

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_57_94oj3.jpg

As Louise and her friend Dede sat in the waiting room while Archer was in surgery, the two prayed the rosary. Looking into each other’s eyes, they focused and imagined Archer’s healing.  All of these setbacks were just bumps along the way, Louise reminded herself. In this episode of Blink of an Eye, spend some time with Louise as she ponders with a young medical staff woman that in order to move forward, often we have to be pulled back. You’ll also hear about continued struggles with pain management and alternative medical approaches including a powerful interaction between Louise and her friend Jessica Dibb on medical meditation. 

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

Jessica Dibb, Director of the Global Breathwork Alliance and Louise’s close friend, who offered Louise spiritual support and wisdom on internal healing. She and Louise speak about their correspondence on these days in the story and the trust that was built between them for Louise to push the boundaries on medical advocacy.

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.

Trauma Healing Learning 5: Healing Somatically Through Food (with Tracy Brown, RD)

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_56_9ksc3.jpgTrauma is connected in many ways to how we nurture ourselves and how we were nurtured when we were young.

In today’s Trauma Healing Learning, Louise talks to Tracy Brown, a registered dietitian and somatic coach, about the intersection and connected relationship between trauma healing, our nervous systems and nutrition. Learn more about intuitive eating, Tracy’s unique practice and how to better advocate for a loved one’s or your own nutritional needs when they are in a medical setting or medical crisis.

You won't want to miss this engaging and eye-opening conversation on our relationship to food and our bodies!

Season 3: Episode 5: Sweet Savorings

Orange juice, sweet, sweet Simply Orange, finally. But just one drop. Archer passed his swallow test and for the first time in over a month, he could savor flavors he loved. Join Louise in this episode of Blink of an Eye as she celebrates and looks back at the first big milestone of Archer’s time at the Shepherd Center: his swallow test and the glorious moments after, and, what surprising experiences food might mean to all of us. Hear about the continued generosity of friends, including a room of her own, as well as how food became a barometer for Archer’s mental and physical state in this episode.

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

Chris Killebrew, a friend of Louise’s from UVA college days and resident of Atlanta, who offered his empty condominium to Louise as a place of respite and home base. He and Louise talk about how the offering of the condo came to be through their late mutual friend Nick Costas and what it meant for Louise in the trauma and turmoil to have a quiet oasis.

Dewey Senft, one of Louise’s sons and Archer’s older brother by two years, who visited Archer just as he was beginning to swallow again. Louise and Dewey talk about what it took to get Archer to eat and the ways his interest and appetite served as a barometer for how he was doing during their time at Shepherd and the strength of will it takes for quadriplegics, and those compromised by pulmonary breathing issues, to want to live.

Season 3: Episode 4: The Feeling of Home

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_52_8v3q3.jpg

If you can’t be at home, why not bring home to where you are? That’s what Louise started to do for both herself and Archer in this episode of Blink of an Eye — both consciously and subconsciously. As the Shepherd medical team struggled with finding pain management options for Archer’s unending pain and started preparations for his delicate sinus surgery, Louise found herself connecting with Baltimore community members about future visits to Atlanta. An old friend from the Order of Malta stops by as Louise unravels and he provides her with unexpected spiritual support.

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

Ned Insley, father of Archer’s friend Jeffers Insley in Baltimore, Maryland.  He and Louise speak about the beginnings of coordinating frequent flier airline miles, the snafus and workarounds, and the system for shuttling Senft family members and Archer’s friends to and from Atlanta. 

Diane Festa, a friend of the Senft’s from the Order of Malta and an Atlanta resident. She and Louise discuss Order of Malta member Monsignor Dillon’s visit to the Shepherd Center and their time in Lourdes, France.
