This podcast was created to help you heal from trauma. Trauma interferes with our internal guidance system and separates us from one another and more importantly, from our highest self. Trauma survivors and sisters Dr. Amy Hoyt and Leina Hoyt, MA draw upon their personal knowledge and extensive research in the fields of mental health, trauma, and spirituality, to teach you practical and powerful evidence-based steps to heal yourself from trauma.
 
In a global-minded, profit-driven industry, it is often hard to separate the hype from reality. There is consumer technology, and then there is technology that affects consumers. In this series, host Leina entertains the intersection of humanity and technology based on a realist worldview. Instagram @Leinacast
