Mar 2. Susan Edelman, Be Your Own Brand of Sexy: A New Sexual Revolution For Women
The New Sexual Revolution…..is NOW! Now in my mid-70’s, I have lived through the sexual repression of the 1950’s, the sexual explosion and freedom of the hippie days in the 1960’s, the sexual freedom of the 1970’s, and the sexual pressures of recent years. Susan Edelman is right—nothing is much clearer than it has ever been! If we can’t get an idea of what is right and acceptable for our sexuality from outside of us, however, the natural place from which to glean it is from within ourselves. Psychiatrist Dr. Susan Edleman helps us do just that. What a great area to explore with her. Do make time to listen, call in, chat and be a part of this important discussion.
Psychiatrist Dr. Edelman takes a look at the fact that women have gone from the message “if you have premarital sex you’re a slut” to “if you don’t have sex (freely) you’re a prude.” Neither message was helpful! She says women are as confused today as ever. It’s because they have forgotten one really important thing, which we’ll be discussing together on this show. Dr. Edelman is fomenting revolution—sexual revolution. She says being your own brand of sexy involves figuring out: 1) What you want; 2) What works for you as an individual; and 3) What strategies will help you achieve your relationship goals, whatever they may be. Especially in these times when so many women feel like they are being discounted by political leaders, taking the lead in what we want and how to get there is vitally important.

What goes on in the mind of a person who feels they cannot go on? This is the territory my guest takes us into this week, as I interview Adele Royce. Her book, The Little Black Book of Suicide Notes, is designed to be the first of a trilogy on this normally taboo topic, sharing the reasoning and thoughts of a person entertaining the idea of suicide, regularly. In her book, Adele explores the benefits of death—why would a person think that killing him/her self would be better than staying on the earth? Exploring such thinking may provide you one day the tools you need to use with yourself or someone you love. Winter is a wonderful time to consider such thoughts.
Have You Ever Thought of Killing Yourself? When my marriage broke up when I was 30, my estranged husband wrestled with thoughts of suicide. I did not. Never occurred to me. Why? I was intrigued. I noticed that he had experienced a very sweet, protected and safe childhood, while mine featured early abandonment, loss of my birth mother, and constant moving (among other challenges). To me it seemed like I had, early on, needed to make the decision about whether I would stay here on the earth—continue to survive—or not. My husband, on the other hand, had experienced no reason to think about such things and make such decisions! Suicide is something we need to take seriously. Personally, I’m interested to know what a person contemplating suicide is thinking about, because it’s such a mystery to me. Whether familiar or a mystery, it bears contemplating. Call in on our toll-free number. We want to learn from you, too. (949) 272-9450. Click here to visit Adele Royce’s website!
Now that I’m 74, I’ve had a chance to observe a lot in life. I remember when women first joined Corporate America, they took on pant suits and masculine behaviors in order to fit in and develop a sense of power that enabled them to work there. In those days, “kindness” would not be something most people at work would discuss, much less look for ways to do. Too “female”. How great it is that we have evolved. Women are bringing some “feminine energy” into the workplace, where it is accepted and utilized. It means we’ll have better balance in the places where we work. It means we can be strong when we need to be strong, and kind when we create an opportunity to be kind. It means we are more encouraged to be ourselves, instead of copying others. Perhaps it will also mean we develop the ability to be kind to ourselves!
Think about what Kindness at your place of work might mean for you. If you don’t experience kindness, but would like to, you’ll certainly want to listen to my guest for this week, my friend Jill Lublin, internationally renowned speaker on the topics of kindness, publicity, referrals and networking. Jill is talking about the ROI of Kindness in the workplace through her new book, The Profit of Kindness, sharing ways to bring Kindness into your workplace and offering her famously-effective strategies for being Kind and supporting Kindness at work, and wherever you are. Jill says she wrote this book to show how you can create specific acts of kindness in business to increase your income, generate new clients, and get repeat customers to buy more of your services or products. I think it will work in families, too!
Life is moving on; and we’re going on the move, too! In the second half of our show this week, creator/host Ilene Dillon will share the changes in her life that affect the nearly 13 year “run” of Full Power Living. As always, Ilene will share deep wisdom she’s been accumulating, as she discusses change, flexibility and engagement! Click here to visit Jill Lublin’s website!
Feb 9, Acharya Shunya: Demystifying Ayurveda for Health
Lifestyle Wisdom to Optimize Health, Prevent Disease, Develop Vitality. In the mid-80’s I traveled in Europe for a few weeks with a friend who was in his 70’s. Almost daily, he complained to me: “Just don’t get older. Every year you get older, it takes longer to get going and get out of the house each day!” Is that really necessary? I’m excited to talk with Acharya Shunya this week to discover some of the things I can do for myself before I have to! Won’t it be better to start making changes in how I care for my physical body, health, energy and emotions before something “goes wrong”? I’m ready to institute some new patterns in this part of my life. Are you?
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian spiritual and healing wisdom, traditionally passed down from generation to generation. For most of us, it’s remained a mystery. Something we get a “treatment” for, but don’t engage daily. Acharya Shunya, a master of this art and science, has now written a book that brings this ancient wisdom into our hands, so we can utilize its timeless wisdom in our daily lives. The veil of mystery is lifted, so you can understand this is something you can do for yourself. Acharya Shunya shares that it can help each of us obtain optimal health, healing many of the illnesses and conditions that may have been plaguing us. She’s offering simple things we can do and change that strengthens our body and improves our health and emotional well-being.
Want to Have A Life After Making a Living? As you know, my husband, Bob, died in early 2016. I was 73. What to do with the rest of my life? My decision was to surge forward. I became aware that after 53 years of adult living, I was responsible for—and beholden to—no one but myself. At last! So, I’ve sold my home. I am awaiting the delivery of my R.V. I’m enrolled in a mentoring program to improve and transform my work skills. Right now, I’m in “hold” mode, accepting the hospitality of my wonderful son, Jon, and his wife, Anne. In April, I’m hitting the road. Gloria tells me this is what “Revivement” is about! Instead of sitting at home or taking up knitting, I’m busy reinventing myself for the next 30 years of my life. This is what we’re talking about this week. No matter what your age, you’re either ready to experience ReVivement yourself, or you know someone who is reaching this juncture in life. Come explore with us!
Have you noticed that “70” or “80” and even “90” is not what it was even 20 years ago? People are remaining present and vital, despite “advancing years.” Our society is still structured to have people retire at 65-70. What does a person do then? Gloria Dunn introduces the concept of “ReVivement,” helping her readers to “have a life after making a living.” Gloria suggests with fervor that anyone over 50 is ready to have a rebirth; and to renew and revitalize a life that has been waiting for this auspicious time. She says the old thinking that says you’re done when you retire is wrong, and wants pre-and present retirees to wake up to a new and better life in their later years. “You’ve earned it and you deserve it,” she says. “Now is the time to revive your life to a much-awaited freedom with your much-developed knowledge, experience and wisdom.”
Jan 26, Kim Knight, Bullying: Lifelong Consequences & 3 Steps Out!
Bullying: Lifelong Consequences & 3 Steps Out! Years ago I met a woman from New Zealand online. She was working with emotions in ways that intrigued me. We began corresponding. When she came to the US for training, she stayed with me and my husband, Bob, who was showing signs of becoming ill. Even though she was not fully recovered from her own health struggles at the time, she still offered treatments to Bob. While he accepted one session, he was, unfortunately, unwilling to go further. His illness eventually blossomed into the cancer that killed him a few years later. But Kim Knight, that Kiwi woman who visited, had offered to heal him, because he needed it. That’s who Kim Knight is. She’s now in full health and helping others all over the world. My experiences with Kim is why I know we will all benefit from her appearance on Full Power Living. Now, more than ever, we need to know about bullying.
Kim Knight has two “secrets” she’s using to help people regain health and change their lives and experiences. 1. Your body is far too intelligent to make mistakes and illness has a meaning and purpose – if you know how to decipher the clues. 2. The keys to changing everything from your happiness to physical health can be found in what happened to you in the past and how that has inadvertently created your ‘now’. As creator and head of Kim Knight Health, Kim works tirelessly to help people around the world heal themselves from some of the most challenging and elusive forms of suffering, such as chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, PTSD, allergies, joint pain, sleep problems, stress, anxiety and depression. She does this with her skillful work with emotions—those parts of us that are “set” by the age of 7. Bullying stimulates emotions, some of which we hold onto for years. Discover the consequences of not dealing effectively with bullying—as well as what can be done to deal effectively with the experience. Click here to visit Kim Knight’s website!
