One thing I hope that you will look at it is an Online Museum of African-American Addictions, Treatment, and Recovery. This helps us to see that there are other people that have recovered and are doing the kind of work to move their lives forward.

    Black fatigue. Particularly for Black women. When I ran across the book, Black Fatigue: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body, and Spirit, by Mary-Frances Winters, I had already gone through various renditions of COVID, the racism that has always been there... I was really, really, really tired, not so much in a sleepy way, but my soul was tired. This book helped me to understand more about what I'm looking at in my own life and in the work that I do with women. Our guest, Mary-Frances Winters is the CEO of The Winters Group, a global organization with a focus on diversity and inclusion consulting. Mary is truly working in her passion and her calling.

    046 - Becoming Safely Embodied with Deirdre Fay

    1:02:24

    We're talking trauma, embodiment, attachment theory -- how we become separated from ourselves and others and how to reintegrate safely. Three years ago, I went to this workshop in a suburb outside of Chicago. And I already knew what the deal was going to be. I was going to be, probably, the only Black person there, or one of two, because that's just how it is my field. And it was true. As I was walking up the steps to go to this room, my body started to defend. And by that, I mean, my shoulders became tight. My hips became tight. I had my serious face on because I needed to prepare as usual. I walked into this room and, you know, everybody was kinda milling around and the presenter was at the front and she was talking to some people. And as I was getting ready to sit down, I looked up and she was in the front of the room and she smiled from her heart through her eyes with her energy. It couldn't have been more than a second. And my body began to relax because I knew that I was safe just by that transaction. And so this woman that I am speaking of is Deirdre Fay. Deirdre Fay, MSW has decades of experience exploring the intersection of trauma, attachment, yoga, and meditation. She teaches “a radically positive approach to healing trauma”. Deirdre founded the Becoming Safely Embodied skills groups, the basis for this book, and is the author of Attachment-Based Yoga & Meditation for Trauma Recovery and co-author of Attachment Disturbances for Adults, as well as the co-author of chapters in Neurobiological Treatments of Traumatic Dissociation.

    043 - BWB 4: A conversation with my mom about suppression, resilience, and restoration

    42:26

    This is absolutely the most exciting podcast that I've ever done. And I have a very, very special guest for our fourth and final episode of the Black Woman Burnout series. We're going to be talking about burnout as it relates to how Black women suppress things.  I want to introduce you to my mother, Rita Jean Robinson Braxton Braxton Turner. Now those names will mean something to you as she and I continue to talk. She says that each one of those names represents a different level of suppression, resilience, and restoration in her life. "I'm in the room. And I want you to respect that." *** If this conversation has brought you to an insight, a story, a sense of relief, please email me at lisa@insideoutrecovery.com with the subject line "Black Woman Burnout."

    042 - BWB 3: Sometimes we just wanna holla with Ramona Outlaw

    49:03

    Our third episode in a series I have affectionately come to know as "BWB" -- Black Woman Burnout. And what we are going to be talking about today is just how much we, as Black women, repress our emotional selves -- how we repress those things that we feel afraid to express or don't have time to express or don't give ourselves permission to express. And so the title of this particular episode is "Sometimes you just want to holla!" Today, I have my sister with me and her name is Ramona Outlaw. Ramona first of all, is a retired high school principal in the Chicago Public School system. Even as late as today, even though she's retired, they're still calling her and she's still answering. She's been an educator for over 25 years and one of her greatest loves in life is traveling.  What she says about education and teaching is that she did not choose teaching -- teaching chose her and kept choosing her for over 26 years.  *** If this conversation has brought you to an insight, a story, a sense of relief, please email me at lisa@insideoutrecovery.com with the subject line "Black Woman Burnout."

    041 - BWB 2: Deep Rest with Gail Hutchison

    55:37

    Many of us, as Black women, sometimes aren't even aware that we're burned out because we're so used to keeping a pace. This is the second episode in a series highlighting Black Woman Burnout during Black History Month.   Gail Hutchison is a wellness leader, educator, and professional development trainer. She's a yogi and an inventor. And her personal mission is to inspire people to reach their full potential by providing encouragement tools and education that are required to succeed. Gail has been practicing yoga for two decades and has been teaching yoga for 15 years. She's also my long-time friend. As Black women, particularly during this time, we often feel vulnerable wanting these kinds of services and wanting them from someone that looks like us. And so I invited Gail today to focus on fatigue and how we can find deep rest and peace in our lives. Listen through to the end as Gail guides us through a meditative practice of savasana, which traditionally comes at the end of yoga class. Then check out her services at https://thejoyyoga.com. *** If this conversation has brought you to an insight, a story, a sense of relief, please email me at lisa@insideoutrecovery.com with the subject line "Black Woman Burnout."

    040 - BWB: Black Woman Burnout

    26:31

    The conversations that I love to have are bold, messy, and real. And I've been thinking a lot about burnout and women -- reading different studies and different books related to burnout. While a lot of it has been very helpful, most of what I've found doesn't necessarily touch on the areas that are particular to black women. So that's where we are going and I invite you to come along with me into your imagination for this episode... *** If this conversation has brought you to an insight, a story, a sense of relief, please email me at lisa@insideoutrecovery.com with the subject line "Black Woman Burnout."
