Welcome to Third Eye Weekly–a podcast dedicated to answering the big questions through intimate story telling. Tune in and listen to BTR hosts Zach Schepis and Lisa Autz as they weave spoken word, independent music, and unique stories that help bring our inner and external selves to full circle.
Today’s podcast is about disruption. No matter how centered we are, no matter how much we try to ground ourselves, there is always a force out there vying to shatter our serenity.
This week’s big question is: What are the biggest disruptive forces in our lives, and how do we learn to accept and combat them so that they can be overcomed?
The first disruptive force we’ll cover is technology. We’ll talk with Tiffany Shlain, an American filmmaker, author, and public speaker. While she might be the founder of the WEBBY Awards, co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and one of the internet’s first pioneers–Shlain has learned how to minimize the disruptive nature of technology through unplugging with her family.
We’ll also talk with Sue Hitzmann–founder of the MELT method, which is designed to eliminate physical disruptions of muscle and joint pain.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Rebekah Gregory–a survivor of the Boston Bombing who recently lost her leg as a result. She maintains positive and despite such disruptive tragedy, will be getting married this year to another of the survivors, whom she fell in love with shortly thereafter.
This podcast will feature a spoken word poem by Jesse Parents entitled, “Replay”.
Also, feel free to check out our video on the revolutionary MELT method to help alleviate chronic pains.
