Ep. 7: "I Had a Toxic Take on What It Is to Love Someone"
A conversation with our guest Nick focused on his navigations of the Deep C of Connection, especially how his life fell apart and how he put it back together by finding a better way to connect with others. Includes simplified explanations of popular concepts like codependence and boundaries.
Bonus Episode! "Commuting: A Moving Meditation"
Turn on this 6-ish minute moving meditation when you are on the move in some way, for a little perspective shift and to enhance the moment. This audio was created by Kate Harline and Brian Andelin in August 2019 but hasn't been distributed until now--and now seems the perfect time as we wait for other Deeper Hearts Club episodes to finish coming down the pipeline (they're on their way--we promise!) Enjoy!
Ep. 6: "I Suppressed So Much of My Identity"
A conversation with our guest Michael focused on his navigations of the Deep C of Core Concerns, especially his personal wrestle with--and eventual acceptance of--parts of his identity. Includes a Therapist's Interlude about how an earthquake taught Kate about the need for both stability and flexibility.
An Update! New episodes coming soon.
Ep. 5: Interactive Episode: Choice Map
Another interactive episode in which you are encouraged to interact with the content. This episode leads you through making a Choice Map: a clarifying exercise, often used by Kate in therapy sessions with clients, meant to help you better navigate the Deep C of Choice in your life.
Ep. 4: “I Was Damn Good at Following the Formula”
A conversation with our guest Pam focused on her navigations of the Deep C of Choice, especially how she's worked to relinquish a sense of control over the future. Includes a Therapy Interlude about Kate's own wrestle with this Deep C and a paradoxical suggestion for dealing with the uncontrollables of life.
Ep. 3: Interactive Episode: Indulge-Ignore-Invite
The first interactive episode of the series! Here, you are invited to be more than a listener--you are invited to actively engage with the things we talk about and explore how they can help you live with a deeper heart. This episode features a powerful guided visualization meant to help you better understand your current relationship to the Deep C of Change.
Ep. 2: "I Push Things Deep Down So That I Don't Feel Them"
A conversation with our guest Tiare focused on her navigations of the Deep C of Change, including what happened when she didn't emotionally deal with a personal tragedy for 20 years. Includes a Therapy Interlude with a suggestion from Kate about dealing with pain and darkness.
Episode 1: Prologue
Listen to this episode first! In the Prologue, Kate draws on her experience as a therapist to give us her take on human suffering, introduces us to "The Deep C's" of Change, Choice, Connection, and Core Concerns, defines what it means to have a "deeper heart," and gets real about her own death anxiety.
