TEDxFiDiWomen – Lissa Rankin – The Shocking Truth About Your Health / Brene Brown: The power of vulnerability


I had promised to finish my tree project without interruptions but the video I just found on You tube called for an exception.
Lissa Rankin is outstanding in a wisdom one can’t buy with money. I was literally shaking my head in acknowledgement all along.
She then mentions Brene Brown and advises to see her TED talk which I had previously watched but took a whole new dimension after Lissa’s speech.
I am therefore including that video in this post too. Lift up your feet at the end of your day with a hot mug and… Enjoy it! It’s well worth your time ūüôā

Lissa Rankin, MD is an OB/GYN physician, author, keynote speaker, consultant to health care visionaries, professional artist, and founder of the women’s health and wellness community OwningPink.com. Discouraged by the broken, patriarchal health care system, she left her medical practice in 2007 only to realize that you can quit your job, but you can’t quit your calling. This epiphany launched her on a journey of discovery that led her to become a leader in the field of mind/body medicine, which she blogs about at OwningPink.com and is writing about in her third book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013).

She teaches both patients and health care professionals how to make the body ripe for miracles by healing the mind and being healthy in all aspects of life, not just by promoting healthy behaviors like good nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep, but by encouraging health and authenticity in relationships, work, creative expression, spirituality, sexuality, finances, and living environment. She is leading a revolution to feminize how health care is received and delivered by encouraging collaboration, fostering self-healing, reconnecting health care and spirituality, empowering patients to tap into the mind’s power to heal the body, and encouraging women not to settle for being merely well, but to strive for living vital, joyful, authentic lives full of “mojo.”

When not spreading the word, she chills out, paints, does yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.

Brene Brown: The power of vulnerability

Uploaded on Jan 3, 2011
http://www.ted.com Brene Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk at TEDxHouston, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Featured speakers have included Al Gore on climate change, Philippe Starck on design, Jill Bolte Taylor on observing her own stroke, Nicholas Negroponte on One Laptop per Child, Jane Goodall on chimpanzees, Bill Gates on malaria and mosquitoes, Pattie Maes on the “Sixth Sense” wearable tech, and “Lost” producer JJ Abrams on the allure of mystery. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and TEDTalks cover these topics as well as science, business, development and the arts. Closed captions and translated subtitles in a variety of languages are now available on TED.com, at http://www.ted.com/translate.

    • I am happier than you know, it means the world to me when a post goes to the right “address”.
      This is the whole purpose of this blog, to share the tools that help me, with others that might get at least as much if not more ūüôā

  3. Really enjoyed these, thank you. I had seen the first one before but she’s great. Brene Brown’s talk on vulnerability was timely for me, I have just spent a couple of days pondering on this myself so it was nice to hear her talk about it so articulately but also with such humor. Thanks for sharing ūüôā
