About the Episode
Dr. Jody Carrington is a powerhouse speaker and fearless champion for authentic human connection. She is a clinical psychologist, speaker, and author. She has spent most of her career working with children and families who have experienced trauma.
She believes in two things: that you are exactly where you need to be, no matter how painful or wonderful, and that we are wired to do hard things. More importantly, we are wired for connection, and we were never meant to do this alone. She joined us today to talk about her book, ‘Feeling Seen: Reconnecting in a Disconnected World.’
From the challenges of navigating burnout and mental health issues, to the stigma surrounding emotions and the need for an emotional language, Jody shares their expertise and personal journey. They remind us that no matter our gender or background, we all share the same emotional makeup and the power of addressing, rather than suppressing, our feelings.
But with the rise of technology, are we losing our connection with each other? Jody explores how society’s obsession with comparison and constant distractions hinder genuine interactions and meaningful connections. They shed light on the importance of slowing down, being present, and embracing uncertainty in order to rekindle kindness, creativity, and remarkable human experiences.
So, prepare to be inspired and challenged as we embark on a journey of growth and self-discovery with the incredible Jody Carrington. Get ready to reshape your perspective on relationships, emotional well-being, and the true essence of being a remarkable human being.
