Every parent out there knows that the job of parenting can affect your physical and emotional well being in both a positive and negative way. The difference between good kids and bad kids is a slippery slope, especially when it comes to shaping the psychology of healthy children.
To guide us through this subject, we welcome back Dr. Gregory Canillas to the show!
Anyone who has followed this program knows that Dr. Canillas set my show on fire the last time he came through to discuss relationships. In fact, after 115 shows, that show is still the highest rated and downloaded show I've ever had.
Dr. Canillas is currently teaching in a doctoral program in Applied Clinical Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (Los Angeles campus) and is an Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Pepperdine University and National University.
He is a frequent presenter at regional, national and international conferences on parenting and relationship issues, foster care, domestic trafficking of children, intimate partner violence, substance abuse, psychological treatment and ethnic minority populations and LGBTQ issues.
He has served as a Program Director at several nonprofit organizations, overseeing the child and adult therapy programs and pregnant/parenting teen programs. Dr. Canillas has also served as a Children's Social Worker with the Department of Children and Family Services, as a Clinical Psychologist with the Department of Mental Health, and later as the Clinical Director of a family preservation program.
He currently serves on the Commission on Youth and Children (Long Beach, California), a body that advises the Mayor and city council on issues of importance to children, adolescents and families in that city.
It is often said that the key to finding health, abundance, healing, and a happy life is all in the mind. Yet, how many of us are actually capable of accessing these aspects of existence? How many of us are able to enjoy these states of being on a consistent basis as opposed to a fleeting moment?

Michael Kohan joins the show to share this journey with us. In 1998, while at Rutgers, he took his first yoga class.

Today we welcome Dr. Glenn Livingston to the show.

Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
His book, Never Binge Again is for anyone who has struggled with food, had difficulty sticking with a healthy diet, or have successfully lost weight before only to gain it all back. The key? Caging the beast, or simply isolating and permanently disempowering your "fat thinking self."
I always envisioned a conversation with a monk to be quite different than the conversation that I had with Vishnu Swami.

These principals apply not only to the spiritual components of our life, but the practical, everyday choices that we make in our approach to health and wellness.
