UPDATE: You can listen to my chat with Gabor’s son Daniel coming to the podcast Wednesday, November 2nd. He co-wrote the book with his dad - and you’ll get a look into that process and his “traumatic” childhood. Subscribe so you don’t miss it!
Dr. Gabor Maté joins us, as we sit down side-by-side for a real conversation. So real, in fact, that not too long into our chat, I tossed my prep cards - something you’ll hear in our chat and see in our upcoming videos. And this is so filled with his insights into trauma, addiction, and healing that it had to be split into two parts. Also - there’s a reason why more than 10 million people - and growing - have watched this.
Gabor’s instant best-seller, The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, & Healing in a Toxic Culture is like his love letter to the world. From his decades as a physician to his years of research specializing in addiction, stress, trauma, and childhood development, he will help you understand how so many of your health issues - both physical and mental - are a reflection of your childhood.
As he says, whether you realize it or not, it is your woundedness, or how you cope with it that dictates much of your behaviour, shapes your social habits, and informs your ways of thinking.
Things to listen for in Part 1 with Gabor:
Social media and “The Genocide Of Authenticity”
Why so many people are not happy
Your healing journey: Why self-awareness will never be enough
The loneliness epidemic and why you don’t feel seen
The aftermath of abuse and how it affects your day-to-day life
90% of people are addicts, 10% are lying to themselves
You are not the only one
The story behind how Gabor and I met and how ended up face-to-face - and in front of the camera - is a story unto itself. It’s proof that you may think nothing is going your way, only for everything to turn out better than expected. But we’ll save that for a future episode …
In the coming days, we will release several videos with Gabor - and behind-the-scenes footage. Now, make sure to subscribe to my newly launched YouTube channel so you will be notified. You don’t want to miss out.
Also, Gabor specially signed a copy of The Myth of Normal for me to gift to one of my lucky YouTube subscribers. That may be you! So subscribe right now.
