In this episode, we feature Dr. Shefali, a clinical psychologist who specializes in the integration of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy.
She has written four books - three of which are New York Times best-sellers. Her most recent work is entitled, "A Radical Awakening: Turn Pain Into Power, Embrace Your Truth, Live Free".
This conversation can help people who feel suppressed embrace their power.
We further investigate the salient differences between men and women at multiple levels of analysis - the biological, the cultural, and the archetypal.
From parental expectations, to entering public life, to the mating game, to marriage, we speak candidly about the fact that the male experience and female experience are not one and the same.
