Single Again! Now What? Laughter Meditation with Pragito DoveLesley’s back and she just celebrated her birthday!  (As a reminder to those new to our show, Lesley is in Atlanta, Joanie’s in Boston and Steve’s in Detroit.)

Laughter Meditation with Pragito Dove

Pragito Dove

On today’s show we take a look at Laughter Meditation and welcome you along for the joy ride.  Our guest is Pragito Dove, author of Laughter, Tears, Silence. She is also a meditation master and trainer.

So what in the world is laughter meditation you ask?  It’s a two stage process designed to lower stress (we all feel better after a good laugh, don’t we?), boosts the immune system, and can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It is even good for digestion. It’s well-known that meditation techniques help reduce anxiety, and depression, allowing you to tap directly into your own source of natural well-being. Meditation also improves brain functioning, decision-making, and increases happiness.  So what have you got to lose?  Let’s get laughing!

Pragito teaches us about laughter meditation and takes us through a guided meditation exercise that you can do along with us.  As they say, laughter is the best medicine, and now you’ll learn why.  Even if you feel down in the dumps, you’ll learn tips to make you feel more balanced, energized and happier.

Anger Management – Dealing with Anger in Relationships

By · Comments Comments Off on Anger Management – Dealing with Anger in Relationships

Agner management on Divorce Source Radio from the Family Support ExpoIt’s normal to get angry from time-to-time, but what happens when you or a partner lose control and anger turns to rage?  In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, Latchman Narain, director-founder of the Anger Management Centre, joins us and helps decode anger and stress issues that can tear relationships apart.

Latchman Narain on Anger Management on Divorce Source Radio

Latchman Narain

In this program, we explore whether anger issues can be a result of something that happened during our childhood.  Latchman offers insight on how to gain control over anger and offers hope for those seeking help.  By learning to communicate with “solution talk,” as opposed to “problem talk,” disagreements with a partner become more productive and less confrontational.

By learning to recognize the signs of anger issues, and with the tools to deal with them, we can learn to communicate in much healthier ways.

Other topics covered include:

  • What to do when your partner gets angry
  • What’s happening in an angry person’s brain?
  • Are angry people self-centered?
  • How thought patterns can contribute to anger
  • How therapy can help
  • And much more.

Voting on Divorce Source RadioAttorney Henry Gornbein returns to discuss the 2012 judicial elections and the importance of voting.

Thirty-nine states elect at least some of their judges, and the vast majority of cases in the United States are heard by elective courts. To safeguard the rights of parties appearing before these courts, its important to be aware of, and reduce reduce the influence of money on judicial elections.

If you’re contemplating divorce, chances are, you’ll find yourself before a judge.  Henry advises all of us to become more involved in learning about the candidates that may be ruling on your case.  He also addresses the Supreme Court ruling that opened the door for public interest groups designed to sway voters.

The Voice of a Child – Protecting Children During Divorce

By · Comments Comments Off on The Voice of a Child – Protecting Children During Divorce

Protecting Children During Divorce on Divorce Source Radio from the Family Support ExpoThis is the first in a series of programs recorded at The Family Support Expo, in Toronto, Canada, in October of 2012. Congratulations to Stephen Rosenfield for delivering a great show!

John Scuman of Devry Law in Toronto on Divorce Source Radio

John Schuman

In this program, attorney John Schuman of Devry Law joins Steve Peck to discuss the voice of a child during divorce.

Divorcing is tough enough, but add children to the mix, and divorce just got more complicated.  Some parents get so caught up in the drama of divorce that they forget to think about how their children might be processing this restructuring of their families.

Protecting our children’s innocence should be the priority when divorcing, and this program will help you gain insight into what your children might be experiencing, regardless of their ages. In this discussion, Mr. Schuman also provides valuable advice to parents, especially those in high-conflict situations.

Topics in the program include:

  • The effect divorce has on children
  • Kids don’t want to decide where to live
  • Children want to have a voice in the situation too
  • The harm of fighting with your ex at sporting and public events
  • Co-parenting around your children’s activities
  • The concerns children have when their parents separate
  • And much more.

Always remember, your children are watching you and how you handle your divorce.  They will face their own conflicts in life, and, in many cases, model the behavior they witnessed in you.  Be the best role model you can be during this very tough time.  Your kids deserve it and there is nothing more important than protecting children during divorce.

Single Again! Now What? Dealing with the Death of a Loved OneThis episode of Single Again! Now What? was recorded the week Steve’s mother passed away, and Joanie and Steve discuss dealing with the death of a loved one.  As we age, many of us are facing the loss of our parents, some have already lost them.

Steve with his Mother

It’s strange how the tables can turn where the ones that used to care and provide for us, now need us to care for them.  And once a loved one passes away, the business of making funeral arrangements can be overwhelming.  And then there’s the grief.  Steve shares his story and thanks listeners for writing kind words during this tough time.

Also in the program, Joanie talks about the retreat she had for women who are in the midst of or post cancer.  Joanie runs a wonderful non-profit that provides these special women with a day of well deserved pampering.

The Family Support Expo Offers the Upside to Divorce

By · Comments Comments Off on The Family Support Expo Offers the Upside to Divorce

Family Support Expo in Toronto on The Smart DivorceOn this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, our guest Stephen Rosenfield http://familysupportexpo.com and http://rosenfieldmediation.com is paying it forward.  Stephen is using his work as a Mediator and making a difference – with his mediation practice and the launch of The Family Support Expo in Toronto, Canada on October 20/21, 2012.

Stephen Rosenfield on Divorce Source Source Radio

Stephen Rosenfield

Whether it is a medical health issue, a mental health issue or a transitional issue, these considerations are often stigmatized within society.  We have learned to hide our problems to avoid rejection and ridicule.  But concealing our problems only makes them worse.  Nobody is perfect, and everyone experiences challenges from time to time. You may not be struggling with one of these issues, but you definitely know someone who is.

If you’re going through a separation or divorce, you are not alone.  40% – 50% (statistics vary depending on where you live) of couples are just like you.  Separation and divorce could be the largest or second largest expense in your lifetime.  Parents rarely do well if their children struggle, and children rarely do well if their parents struggle.  There are many new considerations and circumstances and we appreciate that you need resolution on all fronts.

Topics in this program include:

•    The benefits of The Family Support Expo – the exhibitors, speakers, giveaways and more.
•    The $24,000 dilemma.
•    Considerations to developing a parenting plan when your child has ADHD, special needs or mental health issues.
•    How depression and mental health affects the family dynamic.
•    Elder-care and divorce.
•    Helping the world to be a better place.
•    How your mediation impacts future generations.
•    Going forward fairly in mediation.

This interview covers issues to mediate like you’ve never heard before, and one that should be on your download list!
