Okay, I know I’ve said this before about other episodes, but I truly think today’s episode was one of my very favorite podcast recordings to date!
Maybe it had something to do with the fact that Aundi Kolber is a therapist and I felt like I got a therapy session just by spending an hour with her?! 🙂 Listen in to the episode and you’ll see what I mean.
Aundi has a gift of sharing so eloquently and yet also in such a heartfelt manner. She just exudes such peace and calmness, but also such profound wisdom and understanding of how we are wired.
In this episode, we not only talk about what’s saving our lives (I had to laugh that she talked about something related to brain science and I talk about leggings!) and the books we’re reading, but then we dive into some deep heart topics. She shares what it means to Try Softer (the title of her new book), the difference between Big T trauma and little t trauma and how we might be experiencing the aftershocks of little t trauma without even realizing it and this might be at the root of our stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
Aundi explains thoroughly how the body processes pain — whether physical or emotional. And she provides very concrete suggestions and ideas for how we can start to take steps toward more healing and wholeness.
Whether you feel stressed, anxious, and overwhelmed or whether you know someone who does, this conversation is highly important and one that you do not want to miss. I have thought of it over and over again since we recorded last week and will be taking so many nuggets of truth from it to apply to my everyday life.
In This Episode:
[00:25] Welcome back! I am so excited to have Aundi Kolber on the show!
[01:06] Aundi shares about a little about her background and family
[03:43] Meaningful walks are saving Aundi’s life — and the brain science she shares here is fascinating! And then, to keep things a little more down to earth (!), I talk about my new favorite leggings.
[09:25] We discuss our current reads, including one written by a therapist and a novel I finished last week.
[13:08] Why did Aundi write Try Softer? (I loved that she wrote it as a love letter to her younger self!)
[17:20] We talk about the stigma surrounding the word “trauma” and why it’s important to understand if you’ve experienced little t trauma.
[19:27] How can you tell if you’re holding onto the pain of the past and how does it show up in your life?
[23:50] What does it mean to “try softer” and how can we apply this in our every day lives?
[27:37] Aundi shares practical first steps for beginning to break free from stress, anxiety, and survival mode — even if you feel so stuck and overwhelmed that you don’t know how to take the first step!

On June 12, the National Futures Association (NFA) amended several of its rules and interpretive notices to incorporate expressly supervision requirements for NFA members’ swaps activities. NFA Compliance Rule 2-9(a), as amended, will apply specifically to futures commission merchant (FCM), introducing brokers (IB), commodity pool operator (CPO) and commodity trading advisor (CTA) members. New NFA Compliance Rule 2-9(d) will require swap dealer (SD) members to diligently supervise the swaps activities of their employees and agents. Finally, as part of the overhaul to the supervision requirements, the NFA adopted a new interpretive notice titled, NFA Compliance Rule 2-9(d): Supervision Requirements for Swap Dealer and Major Swap Participant Members.
The amendments and interpretive notice will become effective September 30. A complete copy of the March 8 submission letter detailing the amendments is available here. [...]
