And on this week’s show!

This show takes a look at sobriety in a powerful new way where absolutes work for some and are needed, Colleen Ryan Hensley shares an additional perspective: What if we binged on sobriety the way we binged on all the things that take us away from feeling all the feelings of life and moving through it wholly awake and more empowered? Colleen is a 10-year Navy veteran, candidate for Certified Mental Performance Coach with the Association for Applied Sport Psychology and founder of https://colleenryanhensley.com/ which I encourage you to connect with if today’s conversation resonates. She holds an advanced degree in performance psychology and spent 5-years with the team of cutting-edge researchers and clinicians at the University of Texas at Dallas’ Center for BrainHealth teaching High-Performance Cognitive Training to military veterans and their spouses and caregivers, active duty military, and first responders around the country. There are a lot of things we do to numb ourselves in life and today we explore how it looks and what we might stand to gain by widening the gaps between those numbing tools being in use, and the times when we’re “binging sober” as Colleen puts it. A wonderful show to encourage introspection as we close out a year and look to the next. Thanks for being here as a brilliant member of our podcast-listening community.
