Welcome to season 5 episode 10 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 9, “Renewing Vocational Creativity”.   Human beings were made in God’s image in order that we might create and curate beauty and goodness in the world, not least through all of our acts of work, whether we are paid for it or not. But evil finds any and all of that creativity to be anathema.   No wonder then, that evil has no intention of using shame merely to make us feel bad. Mostly, it wields it to devour the beauty and goodness that God has had in mind for us to co-create with him from before the foundation of the world.   This week we discover how the healing of shame was, in God’s mind, never just about making us feel better about ourselves, but rather about our joining him in the new creation that is here and is surely coming.   . . . . .   Thank you to our sponsors Hon’s Honey - Hon's Honey is a social enterprise dedicated to giving dignity and purpose to women survivors of trauma.  They believe in healing, second chances and new chapters, and so do we.  Use code BEINGKNOWN to receive 20% off your order.

Welcome to season 5 episode 9 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 8, “Redeeming Shame in Our Nurturing Communities”.   Shame doesn’t just appear out of nowhere.  Shame begins in the earliest communities in which we dwell.  It is to those communities we now turn to see how shame emerges there – but also what we can to retell the stories of those communities: our families, our churches, and schools.   Listen in as we get to the bottom of the places where our stories begin, and begin to reimagine how God can transform them on the way to doing the same for the larger communities in which we live.   . . . . .

Welcome to season 5 episode 8 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 7, “Our Healing Cloud of Witnesses”.   For shame to be healed and our lives recommissioned, we need more than good information so we can simply appropriate it on our own as individuals. In the same way that we were made as contingent, co-regulating people who, made in God’s image, require the presence of others for our healthy growth and development, we also need a community for the healing of our shame.   A community that can bear witness to our lives and provide guidance in the re-telling of our stories.  Fortunately, we have a model for how to do that.    Join us as we examine what it means to live truly before a body of people who help us see Jesus seeing us more truly, so that we can see ourselves in the way.   Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.   . . . . .   Thank you to our sponsor… Hope Heals!

Welcome to season 5 episode 7 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 6, “Shame’s Remedy: Vulnerability”.   Hiding and isolation are hallmarks of shame. Moreover, the very notion of exposing our shame is…shaming.   Who knew that the very thing that we are most fearful of—our shame being exposed—is the place we need to begin to discover shame’s healing, and to have our stories begin to be told more truly.   This week we talk about how, like so much of the rest of the story of the gospel, it is in our vulnerability—that very place in which our shame first took place and took shape—that lies the key to its regeneration..   . . . .   Thank you to our sponsor… Hope Heals!

Welcome to season 5 episode 6 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 6, “Shame and the Biblical Narrative”.   At the heart of all that the Bible is lies a story.  YES, a story about humans and all that we are. But even more so, a story about a God and who he is. In many ways, the Bible is the story that God is telling about us.   Given what we have learned thus far about how shame infects the way we tell stories to gain the upper hand, we don’t just need a better story, we need a better story teller.   This week we’ll see that the biblical narrative is not just some feel-good fairy tale.  It’s the hardest, most beautiful story you’ve ever heard.  And evil is working overtime, using shame to keep you from hearing the story that God is telling you about you – and the world of beauty and goodness in which you are to play a central role.   . . . . .

Welcome to season 5 episode 5 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 4, “The Story of Shame You Are Living”.   We’re all storytellers.  Unlike any other living creature, humans are the only animals that tell stories in the way we do.    It is in those stories that our shame takes up residence, with all of the mechanics we have learned about so far, and begins to tell a story that leads to our destruction.  Hence, it’s not enough to know about the mechanics of how shame works. We also need to know where in our stories shame first inserted itself.   SO… which story does each of us believe we are living? The answers we discover may surprise you, and will also begin to pave the way toward freedom from the straitjacket in which shame has bound us.   . . . . .

Welcome to season 5 episode 4 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 3, “Joy, Shame and the Brain”.   We were made for joy. ⁠ ⁠ The bible and our greatest literature attest to this. But not only this: research in attachment reflects that joyful human relationships are the key to our well-being. ⁠ ⁠ No wonder, then, that shame targets our experience of joy as its first priority in disintegrating us, disconnecting us from ourselves and each other. ⁠ ⁠ This week we examine why joy is so important to practice—yep, you read that right: practice—and how shame will do anything it can to rob us of as much of it as it can.⁠   . . . . .

Welcome to season 5 episode 3 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 2, How Shame Targets the Mind.   It has been said, “Keep your friends close. And keep your enemies closer.” If we want to know what evil is up to as it uses shame in its quest to devour us, the first thing to know is how the mind works—so that we will also know where and how evil is doing its dirty work.   In this episode, we review the fundamental features of the mind—such as the nine domains of integration, attention and emotion—and discover where and how shame, like the evil that is wielding it, parasitically uses the very way our minds work to undo us and all of God’s good creation in the process.     . . . . .

Welcome to season 5 episode 2 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at chapter 1, Our Problem with Shame.   It’s not enough to know what shame IS. We also have to know how and where it works. Our problem with shame is not just a sensation in which we feel bad. It’s about all the ways that it hijacks our mind, relationships, and mostly, the story in which we believe we’re living.   . . . . .   Thank you to our sponsor!

Welcome to season 5 episode 1 where this season we are bringing you personal stories and deep teaching into Curt’s book, The Soul of Shame.  This week we are looking at the introduction section, The Story That Shame is Trying to Tell.   ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­What is it about shame? Why is it that it just doesn’t seem to go away?   Moreover, what makes it so destructive? Is it its mechanics? Or is it because it gets so intimately tangled up in our stories? Not only that, but is shame always bad for us? To top it off, how does evil figure into the way shame becomes so much sand in the gears of our relationships, in both small moments and even in the public arena?   Together we’ll discover that the more we know about this topic—and how evil wants to use it to devour us—the more able we will be to overcome evil with goodness and beauty.     Episode Links and References Healing the Shame That Binds You, by John Bradshaw   Sign up to access the Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercises that connect what you are learning to your life in a practical way.    As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episode AND the post show conversations.)    Please subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and we always welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.
S4E12 Wrap Q&A

S4E12 Wrap Q&A

2022-05-1856:11

Being Known Podcast normally ends our season with a wrap up episode highlighting each episode with one more nugget of wisdom.  This season we mixed things up a bit and asked our listeners and followers what they wanted to know more about.   We received over 40 questions seeking additional wisdom on sexual trauma, generational trauma, trauma and the church and more.   A few of the questions asked include: How does trauma play out in our relationship with God? And how does this affect our ability to attune to God? Can trauma cause a type of amnesia where we forget past events? And why/how does this happen? If I already have grown children, is it too late to heal my trauma and not pass my trauma onto my kids?   In Curt’s own words, “I thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to end the season.  It allowed us to be live action and real time.  It offered us a glimpse of what people are learning and what they desire to learn more about.”   Sign up to access the Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercises that connect what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episode AND the post show conversations.)     Please subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and we always welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.    
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.  This week we talk on how we can begin to heal from trauma with a look at the wholeness of integration.   We were made to create beauty and goodness in the world.  But evil has other plans, and wields trauma as a way to devour us before that goodness and beauty can be realized.   But - God had other plans beyond those of evil – plans that evil never saw coming, and still doesn’t.  For indeed, God’s intention is not to ignore trauma, but wade right into it and right up to it, allowing himself to be subjected to its worst possible form.  And so, despite the traumatic execution by crucifixion of a prisoner from a backwater village of a now non-existent ancient empire on a non-descript Friday – we call that Friday Good because God has come not merely to be with us in our trauma, but to transform them, bringing us to wholeness, to beauty and goodness, in ways we could never imagine.   Join us as we, together, imagine Jesus coming to find us in the bomb craters that make up the story of our lives – and as we then tell a new story of beauty and goodness that will transform our minds, and change our brains along the way.     Links, References and Resources Boundaries for Your Soul by Alison Cook, PhD. and Kimberly Miller Try Softer by Aundi Kolber Brainspotting by David Grand Generations Deep by Gina Birkemeier My Grandmother’s Hands by ResmaaMenakem Reparations by Gregory Thompson and Duke Kwon   Scripture References Mark 5:25-24 Mark 3:20-34 Luke 24:13-35   Sign up to access the Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercises that connect what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episode AND the post show conversations.)     Please subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and we always welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.  
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.  This week we talk on how we can begin to heal from trauma.   If there is anything we know about trauma, it’s that it depends on disintegration and isolation to do its dirty work.  And if there’s anything we know about its healing, it’s that the presence of others is the beginning of integration, which leads to the creation of beauty and goodness in the face of painfully broken stories.   But it’s tricky: for the very thing we need the most – the presence of loving relationships – is often the context in which our traumas are initially taking place.   This week we talk about how we can begin to practice the presence of God and of others – the presence that we need despite our error that it is something we won’t be able to survive.     Links and References Healing Trauma: A Pioneering Program for Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body by Peter Levine 8 Keys to Safe Trauma Recovery: Take-Charge Strategies to Empower Your Healing by Babette Rothschild Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe   Scripture References John 15:4 – Abide in Me Matthew 28:20 – I am with you always 1 Corinthians 12 – The body of Christ   Sign up to access the Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercises that connect what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episode AND the post show conversations.)     Please subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and we always welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.  This week we are looking at trauma caused by the church.   One thing we know about infections: some of the most difficult to treat are actually contracted inside hospitals.  How is it that the place where we come to heal can also be the very place where some of our most painful experiences of trauma occur?   From pastoral and spiritual abuse to sexual assault that spares no denominational traditions, that place where we would expect to be as safe as any, can at times seem like just the opposite.  And who would want to have anything to do with a God that would appear to turn a blind eye to such behavior?   Join us as we pull the curtain back on what it means to encounter trauma in the church – only to discover that what we encounter may surprise us, especially when we find out that none of it surprises Jesus.  And he is just the one we need to help us make sense out of what makes no sense at all.    Links and References Redeeming Power: Understanding Authority and Abuse in the Church by Diane Langberg When Narcissism Comes to Church by Chuck DeGroat The Wounded Healer: Ministry in Contemporary Society by Henri Nouwen   Scripture References 1 Peter 5:6-11 Mark 2:17   Sign up to access the Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercises that connect what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episode AND the post show conversations.)     Please subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and we always welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.  This week we are talking families!   Despite our fierce commitment to individualism, trauma is far more likely to follow the way the mind has actually been made, rather than the way we have for the last several hundred years tried to pretend that it works. We would like to think that the trauma that we experience or perpetrate will only have effects on us or the ones upon whom we inflict it.   But that would not be true to the way the brain works. As we will discover, what happens in one generation doesn’t necessarily stay in that generation. Rather, it can have the tendency to travel down ancestral lines, leaving others to pay the price for events that occurred long before they were even born.   Join Pepper and Curt as we discover the steam that the train of trauma can gather over the course of generations—and what we can begin to do to stop it in its tracks.   Links and References It Didn't Start with You by Mark Wolynn   Scripture References Numbers 14:18     Sign up to access the Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercises that connect what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episodes AND the post show conversations.)     Please subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and we always welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.
S4E7 Sexual Trauma

S4E7 Sexual Trauma

2022-04-1348:481

Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.  This week we are looking at the sensitive, hard and beautiful topic of sexual trauma.   What is it about sex that seems to make everything – especially trauma – so much more difficult?  Moreover, how is sexual trauma so much more debilitating than some other forms of our topic?  No matter how much we would like to wish otherwise, there is just no getting around the fact that few things shatter lives more than the events of trauma that surround our sexuality.    This week we wade into this sensitive – and beautiful – topic. It’s sensitive because it addresses the parts of what it means to be most fragile as human beings.  And beautiful because it addresses those same parts from which our greatest vulnerability and generativity spring forth.   If your story is being told through the lens of sexual trauma, Jesus is at the ready to meet you to make sure you begin to tell your story very differently.   Links and References Healing the Wounded Heart: The Heartache of Sexual Trauma and the Hope of Transformation by Dan Allender The Chosen: Season 1 Episode 1   Scripture References Genesis 1:25 Genesis 3     You can now sign up to have access to Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercise that connects what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episodes AND the post show conversations.)     And of course, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.    
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.   This week we connect trauma and shame.   Of all the things trauma can do, its capacity for self-perpetuation is unmatched.  And at the core of that experience is our neurophysiological encounter with shame.  Be it the way we sense the world, or the story we tell about what we are sensing, evil will want to use shame to strengthen the experience of isolation that we feel in response to traumatic events.   But God has no intention of leaving us in shame’s wake, and with the coming of Jesus – not least his own experience of trauma and the shame it carried – we have a model for how shame can be addressed as our trauma is healed.   Listen as we discover how connection dispels shame, making it possible for us to imagine and live into life that is beyond our wounds.     Links and References Anatomy of the Soul by Curt Thompson, MD The Soul of Shame by Curt Thompson, MD     Scripture References Creation Story in Genesis Ezekiel 36:26     You can now sign up to have access to Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercise that connects what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episodes AND the post show conversations.)     And of course, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.   This week we connect trauma and the brain.  To the great surprise of many, our bodies are how our minds most often and most powerfully let us in on reality.  As we like to say in the business, first we sense, and only then do we make sense of what we sense.   But what if our “sensing” mechanism, the body, has been the very thing that has encountered so much physical, sexual, or emotional bludgeoning?  Those who have experienced trauma often perceive that their bodies have been violated, and in some twisted ways have also betrayed them.  Then their bodies go on to keep the bad work of continual betrayal.   In this way, trauma becomes something that our bodies themselves remember in ways that we are often unaware of.  What are we to do?   Today, we pull back the curtain on how the body can be wounded, but also how we can begin to take the first steps toward inviting that same body to become the very source of our healing, long before we are able to imagine in our thinking minds.     Scripture References Genesis 2:7 Genesis 2:21-23 John 16:33     Links and References Polyvagal Theory Window of Tolerance   You can now sign up to have access to Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercise that connects what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episodes AND the post show conversation.)     And of course, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.    
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.   This week we continue looking at the mind.    If the mind goes first, it necessarily will involve the brain.  Therefore, in this episode, we will explore how trauma affects the brain in particular – not least how it perceives our inner and outer worlds – and how being aware of this can give us clues to hour our healing can begin.   Join Curt and Pepper as we discover how the brain is for far more than thinking, and that paying attention to all the other things it does can usher us into the healing process in ways we might not easily guess.  Along the way, we will be reminded that even when the brain has had a tough go of it, God is always able to go one better.   You can now sign up to have access to Being Known Podcast applications, the weekly exercise that connects what you are learning to your life in a practical way.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up (not the pop-up).   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episodes AND the post show conversation.)   And of course, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.
Welcome to Season 4 of Being Known Podcast where we are looking at trauma through the lens of hope and not fear.   This week we begin our exploration of how trauma affects us at the beginning—for it is with our minds that we perceive that trauma has occurred in the first place and what its nature is.  Pepper and Curt review what the mind is and how trauma affects it.   Listen in as we catch the first glimpses of the effects of trauma and what we need to pay attention to as we seek its healing. We’ll see together how, if beauty is what God has intended for all of creation—ourselves included—to become, trauma is one way evil will attempt to devour that beauty before it is realized. But keep in mind that despite the ways that trauma can shatter our mind, God never runs out of options.   Links and References: The Soul of Desire by Curt Thompson, MD The Soul of Shame by Curt Thompson, MD Anatomy of the Soul by Curt Thompson, MD The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk Suffering and the Heart of God by Diane Langberg Healing Trauma by Peter Levine It Didn’t Start with You by Mark Wolynn Try Softer by Audi Kolber   You can now sign up to have access to Being Known Podcast applications (scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up), the weekly exercise that connects what you are learning to your life in a practical way.   As always, we invite you to stay connected with us via social media and YouTube: Instagram Facebook Twitter YouTube (where we post the unedited videos of each episodes)   As always, we invite you to subscribe to the podcast so you never miss an episode and welcome your reviews on Apple Podcasts.

I love Curt Thompson's books, so I was excited to see he had a podcast. I find it so helpful to learn about neuroscience through an applicable and Biblical lens.
