Doctor Neha: Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. I have Jess here in Bali, and she wanted to ask some communication questions. She’s brave enough to do it so that all of you can learn while she’s in the hot seat. So welcome, Jess.
Jess: Thank you.
Doctor Neha: So tell me what are you thinking about? What else could we be thinking about with our watermelon and papaya drinks?
Jess: What I’ve been thinking about is when you’re in relationships and you really feel like a relationship is coming to an end.
Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. I’m filming from Bali. Today’s episode is about giving feedback and that ping-pong game of blame that can sometimes happen when you let someone know of an issue that could be improved.
Right before I came to Bali, I was a retreat center where several monks were also there meditating and having a retreat. I was waiting in line at the front desk when one monk walked up to the front desk.
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. I am so excited because today we’re filming from Bali. I’m sure you can tell by the drinks and our relaxed atmosphere and the plants behind us.
We have a special guest today, and her name is Michelle. She’s a nurse, and we met yesterday at the Garden Café. As we got to talking, I realized she had some important questions that I thought might be able to help all of you,
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. We’re filming in Bali this week, and I have a special guest, Cassie, who actually lives here. I had the pleasure of meeting her recently at an ecstatic dance experience. Welcome, Cassie
Cassie: Thank you, Neha.
Doctor Neha: Tell me what are you thinking about. Why did you show up to talk about communication?
Cassie: Well, something has popped into my life, into my awareness recently.
Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha from Bali. I am so thrilled to be spending a long time in Bali and filming from here. One of the questions that keeps coming up in various forms is, “How do I know if I can trust someone else—trust a new place, trust a new boss, trust my partner after they’ve betrayed me?” It got me thinking about this word trust. How is it that you know whether you can trust someone else or some other place?
Doctor Neha: Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. We’re filming in Bali, and I have a special guest, Salma. Salma lives in London and is travelling in Bali. As soon as we started talking, she said she would be willing to ask her question live and be brave so all of you could learn as she learns. Welcome, Salma.
Doctor Neha: Hi and welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. I’m in Bali, and I met a new friend, Jess. Jess is a chef on a yacht. It’s her J-O-B, and I was so fascinated when I heard that. I asked her if she struggles with any communication questions. She was very open and willing and brave to say, “I’ll give it a go, and let other people learn while I learn.” So thank you for your bravery.
I’m filming from Bali and a New Year’s topic has been resonating with me here. Since I’m sweating a lot in this hot, humid climate, experiencing a new relationship with my body, and eating all organic, gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free, everything is just so real and natural. For instance, my morning papaya drink has fresh mint in it and even the straw is made from a papaya stem.
The new year is a great time to reflect on the lessons you’ve learned. I’m again reminded of the importance of setting clear intentions. I‘ve spent many a year focusing on other people’s needs and desires, without having a clue as to what I wanted. This resulted in an endless, exhaustive dance to make others happy, while I was left feeling lonely and resentful. As a recovering people-pleaser, the most important lesson I’ve learned is that I need to get clear about what I want and then,
Doctor Neha: Hi, I am so excited because my friend Anita Moorjani is here with us today. We’d love to have a conversation and share with you a bit of our journey and some of the biggest lessons we’ve learned. Anita, welcome.
Anita: Thank you.
Doctor Neha: How about if you just start with a little bit about your journey?
Anita: Sure. February 2, 2006, should have been my last day of life. If the doctors were right,
