Tapping gives a regimented way to process negative emotions. And then you feel amazing afterwards. –Jill WenerOn this episode of the PlanSimple Podcast, I’m really excited to talk with Jill Wener, the meditating doctor. Facing stress and burnout herself, Jill found mediation. She overcame her initial skepticism and learned the science behind Conscious Health Mediation. In 2017, she learned another technique—Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT or tapping—that helped her overcome limiting beliefs.We talk about really feeling your emotions and giving ourselves permission to have more positive feelings. Along with this Jill talks about reframing thoughts, so that we are focusing on what we want to grow. Tapping becomes a modality for processing your emotions. Jill briefly explains how tapping works: You say things out loud as you tap on different points on your face and chest. And then you can embody that feeling and sit in it and allow it and embrace it. Then you allow it to pass and to integrate and shift. Then there is a cognitive shift. And you feel amazing after. We talk about: How flexible and adaptive tapping is — and how easy it is to startLearning tools that you can use on your own (they may take time and practice, but you can get ongoing benefits on your own)Meditation and how it perks you up better than StarbucksMediation being more preventative, while tapping is more like a spot cleanerSeeing negative emotions as a giftTapping with your kidsTapping is one of those tools that can bend time, but making you feel amazing in a short time and helping you release negative thoughts and emotions getting in your way. Jill will walk us through tapping during CAMP! Are you signed up yet? Do that now so you have time to plan your amazing week. https://plansimple.com/campBIOAfter 10+ years practicing Internal Medicine in a busy urban hospital, Jill knows firsthand what severe stress and burnout feel like. In the midst of her own emotional turmoil, she was introduced to Conscious Health Meditation, and it had a profound effect on her well-being. Due to her medical background, Jill was initially skeptical of spiritual practices. However, as she learned the science behind Conscious Health Meditation, she embraced the training and marveled at the results of her efforts. The only Conscious Health (also known as Vedic) Meditation instructor in Georgia, Jill completed her training in Rishikesh, India in April, 2016. Jill strongly believes that there is no 'quick fix'; no singular technique can address all of the physical and emotional challenges of today's society. When she discovered the evidence-based technique of tapping (also called the Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT) at a conference for women physicians in 2017 and began using it herself, she was amazed at how well it complemented her meditation practice and helped her to let go of long-held limiting beliefs. She became a tapping practitioner in 2019, and finds tremendous joy facilitating incredible growth and benefits with her tapping clients. A nationally-renowned expert in physician wellness, Jill has published several articles on KevinMD, led physician wellness programs around the country, and lectured at the national level on stress and the benefits of meditation and tapping. She has been interviewed on multiple TV and radio shows as well as podcasts (in the medical community and beyond). In addition to her online and in-person meditation and tapping programs, Jill leads meditation retreats all over the world and is the co-founder and Chief Wellness Officer of the TransforMD Mastery Retreat for Women Physicians. An (always aspiring) anti-racist, Jill is the creator of the Conscious Anti-Racism curriculum, in which she (along with her business partner Dr. Maiysha Clairborne) combines her insights as a white woman on her own anti-racism journey with her mind-body expertise and her 10 years of experience practicing medicine. Jill is also the host of the Conscious Anti-Racism podcast, and she is also the author of the Conscious Anti-Racism book with Dr. Clairborne. LINKSwww.jillwener.comhttps://www.instagram.com/jillwenermd/Doable Changes from this episode:NOTICE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS. Most of us were taught that emotions like anger and sadness were bad, but learning to feel and process all emotions is important. Start by simply noticing your emotions without judgement. Name how you are feeling. TRY MEDITATION. Jill notes that meditation is preventative. It’s a practice that over time makes a difference—just like all of our doable changes. Start by doing a very short meditation. If you think mediation isn’t for you, try Conscious Health Mediation, a specific modality that Jill teaches.EXPLORE TAPPING.

This technique is simple to learn, and you can get something out of it whenever you do it, even if you don’t practice regularly.
Episode 38: The Power of Partnership vs Allyship W/Dr. Jill Wener
The Black Mind Garden: ReMap Your Mind! Create a Life You Design
SHOW NOTES: This week, Dr. Jill Wener and I took the conversation to another level as we talked about the distinction between “allyship” and “partnership”, and the level of trust and the deep scrapping that needs to be done for the partnership to work effectively. Highlights from the conversation: [02:03] Dr. Jill Wener · Hospitalist-turned-expert-in-physician-wellness. · CEO of Conscious Anti-Racism. #Antiracism educator · Best-Selling Author and Podcaster · Meditation Instructor, Tapping Specialist at Conscious Health Meditation + Wellness [04:49] “Partnership” versus “allyship” With the white savior complex and this issue originally here because of white people, “partnership” is a better word to use than “allyship.” Partnership implies “we’re are a team and we are going to work on this together and have equal stakes. There has to be willingness to do it from both sides, especially when it’s hard. [11:38] Partnership to see through “blind spots” Partnership is important to so the party sees what the other does not. If it is a blind spot, we’ll never see it. Blind spots keep us stuck in specific way. People of colors have to be willing to listen and pinpoint what needs to be checked. [15:30] Speaking up for future generation The more we allow it to happen, the more they can get away with it, all the more that it continues happening. We have to be able to be courageous enough to speak up at times when it may not be comfortable in order to make the bigger difference. [17:40] What does true partnership look like? True partnership is about impact rather than intent: “how do my behaviors land” versus “how do I want them to look?” It means going really deep and scrapping out every last bit, finding more of resistance and figuring out what people in any position of power are projecting. For people of color, a level of trust to allow it to happen is very important. A level of vulnerability that comes with that partnership. [22:50] Hear and Understand For white people, there has to be a level of education that is self-motivated. It is important to push past comfort, if it doesn’t make one feel comfortable, it is not enough. Then giving the white people the tool to do that is the next big step. For people of color, one very important thing to do is to heal our traumas – be willing to look at how we’ve internalized this culture and how this greatly impacted us. When we can look at that and forgive ourselves for having internalized a lot of these cultures and heal from the impact it brings, it then gives us even more power to be able to partner. We can never heal if we don’t start to talk about it – between the cultures. ----------- Catch up with Dr. Jill Wener by visiting her at https://www.jillwener.com or contacting her at Info@JillWener.com.

71 What They Didn't Teach You About Racism in Med School With Jill Wener MD
Medical Mnemonist (from MedSchoolCoach)
Dr. Jill Wener discusses systemic racism, anti-racism, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the concept of reverse racism. Dr. Wener is the host of the Conscious Anti-Racism podcast. [01:48] Dr. Wener’s Journey into Anti-racism [08:39] White Supremacy Culture and Systemic Racism [15:27] Racism in Medicine [19:26] Why Reverse Racism Cannot Exist [27:40] Why Black Lives Matter exists [31:16] Internal Versus External Work to Combat Racism [37:19] Resources on Anti-racism Dr. Jill Wener is the host of the Conscious Anti-Racism podcast and creator of a curriculum with the same name. But I am Not Racist! Dr. Wener began leaning into her discomfort around race after a friend admonished her on the racially privileged perspective of her blog post on the 2016 election. Initially defensive, she knew that if she did implicitly have harmful views on race, she needed to correct them. Just like Dr. Wener, many white people are sometimes defensive about race, and reluctant to agree that they are racist and that they benefit from white supremacy and white privilege. They often cite the hard work that they have invested to achieve success, and how they never use their racial privilege. However, Dr. Wener describes the systemic racism in the US as a “toxic fume soup” in which we are all immersed. White people inevitably benefit from their race, even if they do not intend to do so. To illustrate one of the many ways in which white people unintentionally benefit from the color of their skin, Dr. Wener shares her story of being ticketed for using her cell phone in the car. She describes exiting her vehicle to stretch while waiting, and trying to explain to the officer that she had only taken out her phone to take a picture of an advertisement for a farmer’s market. Once the officer gauged that she was a doctor, he explained that he would not have ticketed her. At the time, Dr. Wener did not count this as an incident of her white privilege. But in hindsight, she knows that if she had acted similarly as a black person, she would have been shot or arrested. She knows a black friend who drives with a stethoscope and his medical ID hanging on his rearview mirror to protect himself from harm. White people can go through life without considering their race very much, whilst black people must always be aware and take precautions to protect themselves. Why Reverse Racism Cannot Exist Young adult author Kimberly Jones, encourages us to consider a game of Monopoly where the game has been fixed against some players i.e. black people. For four hundred rounds, black people have been working for no pay under slavery, not being able to own land or anything. Then, for another fifty rounds, money that black people earned was taken from them (consider Tulsa). Now, imagine that after four hundred and fifty rounds, suddenly, black people are told to just start playing the game as “equals.” The hundreds of rounds of damage has not been undone. Therefore, when special spaces are created for black people, or when special opportunities are given to them, it cannot be considered racism on white people, rather, it is taking the first steps towards equality. Racism is the systemic oppression of the weak by the powerful. Systemically, white people have the power, therefore they cannot be the victims of racism. Relatedly, Black Lives Matter does not imply that other lives do not matter. Rather, the name demonstrates that previously, black lives have not been treated as if they matter, and now we acknowledge that they matter just as much as white lives. Racism in Medicine The boards of most hospitals and the dean’s office of schools, in other words people in power, often lack representation from people of color. In patient care, research has demonstrated that med students think that black people feel less pain. Differential diagnosis methods, which are designed with good intentions, often result in stating the races of people of color, whilst assuming the default race to be white. The treatment of sickle cell patients is often entrenched in distrust and false ideas. Racism is rampant in medicine. As a physician, you can practice anti-racist allyship in medicine by reaching out to the diversity inclusion officer at your hospital to ask if there are projects that you can work on. Do not put the burden of dealing with your racism on black shoulders by asking about what you can do to be less racist. Black people do enough emotional labor simply by dealing with the racism thrown at them daily. Deal with your racial discomfort internally, and become anti-racist by seeking out amply available online resources, podcasts and books to help you out. To get you started, here are some of them: Dr. Wener’s Conscious Anti-Racism course and podcast, White Coats For Black Lives, How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X.
