Using the Lessons of a Plane Crash Trauma to Promote Empathy & Connections

Jennifer - talk to me

I met the bubbly Jennifer at a spiritual music festival in Bali, Indonesia.

In this new episode, we discuss how her plane crash survival has been a transformative experience that allowed her to deal with every trauma she ever experienced in life and reframe her purpose.

We discuss the feeling of being mentally prepared to die and survive instead, and how a traumatizing accident can push one to finally address (inner and outer) pain and discomfort in healing ways, rather than escaping it through multiple forms such as traveling, having sex, drinking alcohol and buying things…

As Jennifer used to be a school Psychologist, we also talk about the American school system, mental health issues and how to prevent it through empathy and connection, supported by technology and social experiments.

You Deserve to be Happy
