Rank #1: Attachment Theory, Covert Trauma and The Body with Ben Dorfman

Podcast cover
Read more

Ben Dorfman is the founder of Seattle Acupuncture and Coaching. His passion for wellbeing was first encouraged by his mother, a well-known dietician. As Ben encountered his own personal struggles, which were shaped in clouds of inner turmoil, a barrage of unwanted thoughts and feelings that felt like serial loss, this core need for relief prompted him to look for answers through psychology and spirituality. Now Ben, a true architect of body and mind, bridges the gap between the physical and emotional in regard to medicine.

Ben has a unique way of connecting through vulnerability and humour, allowing myself as a host to un armour. This I can only imagine transpires effortlessly into his coaching repertoire and TCM expertise.  Ben and I discuss his journey that led him to attachment theory based coaching, attachment styles and how each style can manifest in the body. We also chat about the struggle to be vulnerable in a romantic relationship, the normal progression of vulnerability in different group settings and covert trauma. Additionally, Ben mentions the importance of having support to label bodily sensations when uncovering trauma.

“It blew me away, what it felt like to be in the presence of someone who’s willing to be honest and reveal themselves”

“Our present moment now will always reflect unresolved past things from before”

Rank #2: The power of Mentorship, Ritual and Poetry with Amber Campion

Podcast cover
Read more

Amber Campion is a trauma-informed yoga teacher, somatic yoga therapist, & integrative leadership coach. She is also the founder of Dynamic Release Method and The Fulfillment Formula. Both a mindful, intuitive and intentional way to look at life holistically and become clear on personal values. Here, she weaves somatic yoga and embodiment practices such as self-myofascial release to help foster a sense of inner connection. This connection creates a space (a mindful pause) which serves as a prerequisite, an appetiser if you will, to what she calls, envisioning work.

At a young age, Amber, like a moth to a flame, was drawn to poetry, philosophy and art. This flame opened the furnace of her heart, which encouraged the importance of self-expression, steeped her love of humanity and prodded deep curiosity. For more than a decade, Amber has worked in the field of emotional intelligence, personal development, mindfulness, yoga and self-discovery.  This has led her to create embodied trainings, workshops, retreats, masterminds, and online courses which aim to bring your “Full Self” to the world. For six and a half years, Amber mentored and taught mindfulness to incarcerated youth for a non-profit, encouraged by one of her mentors. Mentorship and the magic potential when someone truly “sees” you is very much threaded through this podcast episode, as well as Ambers life. May this podcast episode caress your creativity and inspire you to open to your own poem of life.

In this episode Amber and I discuss her journey, what led her work as a mentor, storyteller and leader in self-expression and mindfulness. Additionally, the essentialness of mentorship, the gift of working with incarcerated youth, the importance of tiny rituals to create lasting impact and her experience at a Vipassana meditation retreat in the jungle of Brazil. We also chat about releasing control, the seven common mind traps that as humans we may find ourselves oscillate between and how creativity and poetry arrange the foundations of her life.

“Mindfulness encourages us to look at the brutality as much as it encourages us to see the beauty.”

“Embodiment helps to release the armour, that we as humans put on to naturally protect ourselves. However, it also keeps our life at bay. Keeping us from really bringing our full selves into the world.”

Topics

Ambers Journey which led her to the wellness space in NY and room setting for Deepak Chopra.

The importance of mentorship.

Her Vipassana retreat experience.

Developing a muscle of awareness.

How mindfulness shapes her life and work.

The “Itty Bitty Shitty Committee”.

Rank #3: Episode 19- Intuitive eating and Mindfulness with Lindsay Fein

Podcast cover
Read more

Holiday season, a time in which both joy and sorrow collide, creating a rich kaleidoscope of brightly coloured emotions both individualised and shared. With this, may come the pull to reach for old coping mechanisms. Of many, food being one of the most common mechanism in which we may find relief.

So, here we have Lindsay Fein, a certified Intuitive eating Coach and wellbeing Counsellor. Through Lindsay’s own experience, being ostracised as a teen and judged through the eyes of a perfection seeking society, food became a refuge. And like most stories, there comes a moment when a pause has been touched and there lays a space in which you realise you have choice. In this pause, Lindsay recognised that no matter how much external validation one gets, it never seems enough. Here, Lindsay found her own sense of Validation. Validation in her own being, in her story and in her process.

On this episode, Lindsay and I discuss her own journey, the importance of listening to internal ques, cultivating self-trust and the 10 guiding principles of intuitive eating. We also chat about how to tend to emotional needs with compassion, distinguishing between hunger and emotional eating and how mindfulness plays an important role in her coaching technique.

Topics highlighted

Listening to internal direction instead of external noise

10 guiding principles of intuitive eating

Lindsay’s journey into intuitive eating and now coaching

Cultivating self-trust

Distinguishing between hunger and emotional eating

How mindfulness has helped Lindsay tune into her body, therefore helping her relationship with food.

Tending to your emotional needs

Letting passion lead you

Rank #4: Episode 18- Owning Your Choices with Marsha Vanwynsberghe

Podcast cover
Read more

Marsha Vanwynsberghe is a Speaker, Life Coach and Author of the bestselling book, “When She Stopped Asking Why” and her latest read, “Owning Your Choices”. On top of this, Marsha is a dedicated wife, mother and the host of “Own Your Choices Own Your Life”.  A podcast, full of tips, tools and strategies that stem from her own learning + the learnings of others. Marsha is on a mission to educate, empower and inspire. If you have ever had the pleasure of listening to her message, you dang well know this is true.

Marsha believes that when you take radical responsibility for your choices, create boundaries and cultivate courage, you can dramatically change the trajectory of your life. With this, she deems that it is your obligation to share your journey with those who may need to hear it the most.

Marsha mentions how she nearly lost both of her sons in the duration of four days. This traumatic event led her to nearly lose herself. With vulnerability, grit, the courage to ask for support and hard work, Marsha went from being a victim of her story, to completely owning her journey.  

In this episode, Marsha and I chat about the courage it takes to be seen, how selectively numbing emotions also numbs joy, what it means to be a soft fighter (someone who has qualities of grit + also the willingness to be vulnerable and ask for support), control, owning our stories and feeling through shame. Marsha also mentions her journey of being a parent, co-dependency, modelling ownership and giving our children permission to change.

If you are a parent, someone who has witness substance abuse or in the stage to seek change, I hope this gives you full permission to take radical responsibility for yourself and as Marsha would coin, “own your choices to own your life”.

“We need to show up and be seen, when we do that other people can see us.”

Rank #6: Episode 16- Control to Trust Solo + Meditation

Podcast cover
Read more

Lets be honest here. 2020 has been somewhat of a shift show (like what I did here). Whether it be pandemic, justice, or political related or not. Fear, manifesting in the shape of control, tends to seep into our bones when we are faced with unknowns and this year has been one Great Unknown.

However, with control, trust diminishes. Trust in ourselves, others, basic goodness and the world can seem foreign and only reachable to a select few. Trust leads us to opportunity, creativity, insight and mindfulness. Qualities we all possess and can lean into more. 

This is a solo episode. I chat about my own experiences of being caught in the Control/Trust seesaw. How forming flexible structure helps ground the nervous system, to therefore tap into a place where trust can arise. How "being fully" in each moment and the mundanities of life helps anchor ourselves. Leading way to possibility, creativity and reinforce trust with each experience. As well as becoming comfortable with the "Don't Know Mind", a teaching from Jack Kornfield. Upon closure, I lead a short meditation to ground and practice "Don't Know Mind".

This love has now materialised as the book “Heavily Meditated” and complementary App. “Heavily Meditated” is a down to earth guide to meditation and accountability to help you actually stick to a practice.

Caitlin mentions her own process of finding meditation and how her experience with Lyme disease, adrenal overdrive and conditional self-worth pushed her, out of necessity, to seek alternative support.

Deriving self-worth through achievement

Rank #8: Episode 14- Healing Through Frequency with Natalie Woeppel

Podcast cover
Read more

What a Pleasure to connect with Natalie Woeppel. Natalie is a Californian based sound healer, reiki practitioner, artist and self-healing facilitator. Natalie is a guide at heart and embodies such to each individual she works with. She combines coaching, EFT taping, meditation and vibrational/ energetic tuning to help you embrace all aspects of your passage.

Natalie’s sound healing and reiki Journey initially started from the deep want to heal from anxiety and depression. A means to ‘fix’ unwanted pain and end suffering. This desire promptly charged her to form a foundation of self-acceptance. She learnt to embrace all parts that created her physical existence. Now, with her passion for service and creativity, Natalie helps others to tune in to their own frequency of medicine.  

Natalie and I discuss the need to process shadow aspects of self to help align with a new reality. What reiki and sound healing is and how it is secular. The power of discernment. Tuning into the frequency of what feels true to you. How frequencies help access the parasympathetic nervous system. How sound is used in all indigenous cultures and the power of community.

As a conclusion Natalie leads us through an impromptu sound bath. So, take a moment, breath with me and get ready for your SN to mellow like an aged wine. 

TOPICS HIGHLIGHTED

  • What Reiki and Sound healing is and how it can help calm the nervous system
  • Processing shadow aspects of self to align with a new reality
  • Discernment of what is or is not for us
  • The power of human connection

Rank #10: Episode 12 - Keep the Focus on You with Dawn Canada

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to the 12th episode of The Process Podcast with Kesten Jean.

This week I am joined by one amazing lady, Dawn Canada. In the words of Justine Timberlake, Dawn has experienced, survived and conquered some seriously “Hard Stuff”. From trauma, drugs and alcohol addiction, loss and depression I would say Dawn has experienced it all. AA, therapy and inner coaching has presented Dawn with the opportunity to find her why. Now, an addiction coach (remember addiction can manifest in M A N Y forms), Dawn leads others to ditch hangover regrets and supports all to turn pain, trauma and hurt into their gift.  

As well as 1:1 coaching, Dawn and her partner TJ lead Monday Morning Matcha talks and a podcast of their own! These chats are real, full of insight and a motivating way to greet a new week.

There’s something quite spectacular in hearing this story, a story of resilience, empowerment and faith. Dawn reminds me and you that we are born to do “Hard Stuff” and our “Hard Stuff” can become our greatest form of service. This is a very timely episode as, I suspect, in these hard periods there would be many lured to cope through the form of an addictive behaviour. I hope this episode gives the courage to own your story, to be empowered by your “Hard Stuff” and know that you too are capable.

Topics Highlighted

- Coping from Trauma in the form of drugs and alcohol. Chasing one high to the next.

- Sometimes its easier to reach for something then to face your emotions. 

- How loss of Trust can shape our reality.  

- How extreme circumstances leads to extreme coping.   

- The social addiction to not coping and how to overcome this.  

- How labelling can create an unhealthy sense of self.

- Putting yourself first as the ultimate form of self love.

- How Dawn empowered herself to use her story as a gift.

- Practicing the opposite emotion when caught spiralling and choosing a more empowering story.

- Keeping the focus back on yourself

- Faith and Trust as ultimate grounding tools
