Doctor Neha: Hello everybody and welcome. Today’s video is going to be special and it’s on the topic of, “To Mask, or Not to Mask.” We’ve all gone through a lot of changes in the last year, and that’s brought up a lot of questions. During the pandemic, a dear friend of mine, Alise and I decided to give back by creating a public group called, “Conscious Community Café.” We wanted to create a virtual café where people could be physically distant but socially connected.
Doctor Neha: Hi everybody and welcome! I have a wonderful friend who’s joining us—Sally! What’s been on your mind?
Sally: Well, I’m the middle of three children in my family. I have a big brother and had a younger brother—who has passed away. As children, my father was very domineering and my mother was pretty quiet. My father used to put people down verbally quite frequently, and as a kid I picked up on that. I think that I treated my younger brother in ways that were not helpful,
Doctor Neha: Hi everybody, and welcome. Today I’d like to welcome our special guest, Jacob. Hello!
Jacob: Thanks for having me.
Doctor Neha: Absolutely! Jacob and I have spent around a year and a half working together, and he agreed to have a conversation so all of you could learn. I’m so glad you’re here.
What have you been thinking about? What do you want to discuss?
Jacob: I’ve struggled with control in my life.
Doctor Neha: Hi everybody and welcome. Today I have a special guest. Hi Gina!
Gina Murdock: Hi Neha, good to see you.
Doctor Neha: Great to see you too. We’re in Aspen and I met Gina last year, when she invited me to speak at a Lead with Love event. I’m going to let her tell you a little bit about that and she’s got a couple interesting things going on that I think you might be interested in.
Gina Murdock: I’m Gina Murdock the founder of Lead with Love, and I am here with Doctor Neha, and we are so excited to be hosting you, Neha, at our Love in Action campaign on Wednesday August 19th. Welcome!
Doctor Neha: Oh, thank you. I’m excited and honored to be here.
Gina Murdock: It’s such a pleasure and it’s so good to see you in my neighborhood of Aspen, Colorado. Love in Action is a weekly call where we bring together people from all over the nation to create a space of connection where we can take inspired action in the world.
Doctor Neha: Hi everybody, it feels like it’s been a while. It almost feels like I should start with “Hi—I’m back!”
2020 has been quite a year. I had videos and newsletters in queue to launch for you, but when COVID hit, we all transformed to living in the moment and anything that was pre-scheduled or pre-planned became irrelevant. And just like everything else in our world, I shut down—quarantined—and my newsletters and communication did as well.
Doctor Neha: Hi everyone and welcome. Today, I have a special guest Alise Cortez. Alise has her own radio show and we did an interview together. And so during the COVID pandemic, I’ve made a new friend and I want to share her with all of you.
Doctor Neha: I’m in Aspen right now, and there’s going to be some sounds because we’re filming outdoors. So I’m just going to let you enjoy those.
Doctor Neha: Alise—Welcome to the program.
Doctor Neha: Hi, everybody and welcome. So welcome, Haydee, and thank you so much for being a brave soul willing to ask your questions so other people can learn.
Haydee: Thank you.
Doctor Neha: Who’s your cutie pie?
Haydee: His name is Walter.
Doctor Neha: Oh, Walter, welcome. So what question does Walter have for us today?
Haydee: Oh my gosh. Well, do you want me to tell you my question or his question?
Doctor Neha: Hi everybody today we’ve got a wonderful guest. Juliana, welcome. Thank you. And, uh, Juliana, what have you been thinking about? What uh, what communication question, what health question, what’s on your mind?
Dr. Juliana: Well lately what I’ve been thinking about is my sugar addiction. It’s really bad. I mean, I know it sounds a little dramatic, but it’s really bad.
Well that is just coming right out of the gate. How did you diagnose yourself?
Doctor Neha: Hi and welcome. Today we have a special guest, Christin. Christin, you’re an RN, right?
Christin: No, I’m not. I work in administration. I am the regional director for difference, diversity and inclusion.
Doctor Neha: Diversity, inclusion…okay. Well, all of you who are doing this class Self-care in Health Care, I put everybody from all disciplines together. I find you incredibly compassionate and connected. And so my natural assumption was that you were an RN.
