  • Authenticity: How to “Be Yourself”
    We’re often told to “be true to ourselves:” to line-up the person we are on the outside with the person we are on the inside. In a word, to be authentic. But what does it really mean to “be who we are,” “get in touch with ourselves,” or to go full new-age “live in alignment with our higher purpose?”In this episode Dr. Rick and Forrest explore what authenticity is, where it comes from, and whether it’s actually a good thing to be more authentic. They talk about what we really mean when we use the word “authenticity,” the fragmented nature of the self, and problems with unregulated self expression. They then turn towards how we can include all of ourselves, act from our values, and become at peace with who we are. You can watch this episode on YouTube.Key Topics:0:00: Introduction2:35: How Rick thinks about authenticity6:10: Congruence, presentation, and the difference between honest and good13:45: A personal example of authenticity from Rick and Forrest17:00: Self-disclosure as a factor of intimacy19:45: What parts of ourselves are we being authentic to?23:15: Vulnerability and aspiration28:10: Carl Rogers’ idea of the perceived self and the ideal self33:20: Is self-improvement authentic?36:30: Unconditional positive regard, and embodiment40:10: Naming what you’re feeling, the vastness of the psyche, and self-honesty46:25: Having a secure environment for aspirational change48:45: Individualism, social roles, and intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation53:05: Archetypes, the shadow, and integration59:20: RecapSupport the Podcast: We're now on Patreon!

  • Impermanence Anxiety: How to Live While Letting Go
    The only constant in life is change. Moments come and go, people enter and leave our lives, and we ourselves grow, change, and eventually pass away. While this is an obvious fact of life, we usually let it blend into the background, and coming face-to-face with it can fill us with understandable feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, and even dread.In this episode Forrest and Dr. Rick explore impermanence anxiety: the fears we have related to change. They discuss “macro” and “micro” impermanence, terror management theory, the courage to care, fully embracing life, what tends to help people come to peace with impermanence, and how we can become more resilient in the face of change. Rick closes the episode by explaining how we can come more fully into the present moment, and see reality for what it truly is. You can watch this episode on YouTube.Key Topics: 0:00: Introduction1:20: Macro-impermanence and micro-impermanence9:25: Terror management theory, and grasping the finality of bigger changes14:50: Fully embracing your reality26:25: Purpose, meaning, agency and acceptance32:40: Why change is scary, and recognizing our own fragility38:10: Repression, avoidance, and sublimation47:05: A walkthrough of the stages of insight54:30: Framing yourself in the broader reality, and letting go of painful things57:40: RecapSupport the Podcast: We're now on Patreon!
