028 Nikk Conneman – Passionate for Compassionate Healthcare

Nikk Conneman M.D. is a Neonatologist and yoga practitioner who focuses on compassionate care for newborns with serious health problems and their families.

 

Nikk is working to change a healthcare system that encourages health care workers to avoid emotional involvement with their patients and families.  Nikk practices and teaches deep presence in the situations he is involved in, which often involve high mortality rates for the infants he is treating.  Nikk is also the director of the NIDCAP training program at Erasmus MC-Sophia Children’s Hospital in Rotterdam, Netherlands.  He travels extensively teaching patient and family centered individualized care.

Additionally, having attended the yoga teacher training where my wife and I met, Nikk and I catch up on old times!

As I mention in the beginning of the episode, I wish every healthcare professional could hear this one – I think it’s that important.

Enjoy!

024 Darina Brown – The Secret of Being Present…

024 darina-4

Today’s Guest Darina Brown talks about her journey growing up isolated under communism,

traveling the world, and becoming a yoga and pilates instructor focused on being present for people to help them feel better.  Even when teaching celebrities or doctors, Darina thinks of everyone as “human beings like the rest of us that just need help” – she focuses on treating all equally, listening carefully, and helping people achieve their goals.

In this episode Darina also discusses her spirituality and how a period of being alone helped her to discover presence and conscious, and how that presence was brought to a new level by having her child.

It was a great pleasure to talk with Darina, who also happens to be my wife 🙂

Enjoy!

23 ally hamilton-2

Today’s Guest Ally Hamilton talks about finding herself at the head of a global yoga community

and teaching the tools for healing.  Ally is a fan of taking what she calls “the short hard road” of facing your demons, rather than running from them and spending a lifetime struggling.

It was a great pleasure to talk with Ally and she echoes what all of us parents know, that our kid can be our best teachers… enjoy!
