Transitions on the Parenting Journey with Mary Steege – 12-27-14

December 28, 2014

One of the most significant life transitions is having a child enter your life.  It can be a wonderful blessing, but also an overwhelming change to your routine and your priorities. And it can be no less of a significant transition when children go on to the next phase of life and parents face an “empty nest”.  This week we’ll discuss how to successfully ride this roller coaster of fun and emotions that is parenting with therapist Mary Steege.

Life Reboot – Transitioning After Starting Over with Markus Kasunich – 12-13-14

December 10, 2014

The challenge of transitions can sometimes be overwhelming, and it can seem like it might be easier to just throw aside everything and start over…….to “reboot” your life.  Often, that kind of total refresh could seem appealing, but we are afraid of the potential for so many unknowns in our life.

This week we explore the idea of a “Life Reboot”……the opportunity to cast aside all of the known factors in our life and begin again in a new place, with a new job and new friends.  Would you consider it?  Our guest this week has done it not once, but many times in his life, and will help us explore the healthy and unhealthy approaches to beginning life again.

UpdatedCroppedMarkus0514Markus Kasunich is a frequent guest on the Mind Body Spirit Living show and we welcome him back this week to share his amazing stories of restarting his life over.  Markus is a holistic life coach, speaker and healer and  speaks often on issues related to personal growth, and works with clients to help them access their own potential.  Markus is also an artist and has been a featured artist in gallery showings and sells his own line of greeting cards featuring his art.

Transitioning to Life Beyond Addiction with Sammy Rangel – 12-06-14

December 1, 2014

For people trying to move beyond any form of addiction, the transition can be incredibly challenging.  Behavioral patterns, circumstances and people can all provide constant invitations to return to old habits, and inhibit recovery.  What does it take to make a healthy transition beyond addiction?  Our guest this week has personal experience, and now helps others in their transition through addiction.

Sammy Rangel spent most of his early years in mental institutions, foster homes, and detention homes.  He embraced violence at the age of 11, joining the Maniac Latin Disciples gang and spending long periods in prison. It wasn’t until a drug abuse program helped him rehabilitate that Sammy began to further his education and start working for a Safe Streets Outreach Program in Wisconsin.Today, he writes articles for Life After Hate and consults with law enforcement on addressing and curtailing gang behavior. Sammy is the author of the autobiography FOURBEARS: The Myths of Forgiveness.

SammyRangel In 2004 Sammy graduated from Gateway Technical College-Racine and from Carthage College with a Bachelors of Social Work Degree with a minor in Psychology, Cum Laude. In 2009 Sammy graduated with a Master of Social Work Degree, Summa Cum Laude, with a mental health focus, from Loyola University-Chicago.

Sammy has also worked at the Racine County Jail as a Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor helping men and women with addictive and criminal lifestyles.  Sammy contributes to the community by sitting on various committees that address race, homelessness, crime, gang activity or drug abuse issues among our youth and adults.  He is also the founder of Formers Anonymous, an organization with a mission to help people move beyond their addiction to street life.

Sammy is an in-demand speaker and has spoken about his story to audiences around the world.  He has just committed to speak at the TedX Conference in Hungary in 2015.
