How to Fight Darkness

BY PHILIP SMITH
@ VOL 54 ON DEC 08, 2015

"Is reality this dark? I don't believe so. I believe it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we think everything is bad, everything will be bad."

In How to Fight Darkness from PechaKucha Night Stockholm Vol. 54Philip Smith poses the question, "How will we fight the dark powers and the evil galactic empire together?" (the evil empire being the often sensationalizing and fear-mongering media.) His answer is simple - ART! ...and more specifically, Art made of Light! Here Philip gives us a very funny and uplifting PechaKucha on the challenges the the world faces in a continuous barrage of negativity, and reminds us to use the force (and make art!)

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, December 21st, 2015.

Mindful Play

BY DEE WAGNER
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

Dee Wagner joins us to discuss mindful play and how it may be used in place of the third reaction style that follows the two known reactions "fight" & "flight"... The third is "shutdown" and is a reposnse when neither 'fight' not 'flight' are an option... Mindful play has its roots in the polyvagal theory and Dee walks us through responses, the nexus of her mindful play approach, and peppers it all with her own personal story.
