  • TSC Talks Revival!! JUSTIN LESLIE of Project Whistleblower ~ Truth Under Fire

    18 MAR. 2024 · This is a special edition, TSC Talks Revival episode with Justin Leslie! Justin is an ex-Pfizer scientist and whistleblower. Justin was also one of my first guests on my podcast "TSC Talks" in 2018, (https://bit.ly/3Iz0FUU) where he shared his story about his experience with diagnosis and living with TSC.   In "Project Whistleblower" Justin shares his personal journey, including living withhttps://www.ninds.nih.gov/health-information/disorders/tuberous-sclerosis-complex, a condition that not only shaped his childhood but also inspired him to pursue a career in pharmacology, aiming to find a cure for his condition. During his time as a vaccine scientist at Pfizer, Justin began to collaborate undercover with Project Veritas. This partnership led to the revealing of mind blowing revelations about the COVID-19 ‘scamdemic’ and other alleged misconduct within Pfizer. However, he soon started to observe concerning behaviors within Project Veritas, such as the suppression of timely truths and vaccine concerns. These observations led him to question the integrity of the organization and its founder, James O’Keefe. In collaboration with Marty Leeds, Justin has produced the compelling documentary “Project Whistleblower.” This film delves into his experiences and his growing awareness of the covert tactics and manipulations at Pfizer, Project Veritas, and OMG Media Group. In an era rife with lies and deception, the documentary underscores the revolutionary act of truth-telling."

  • TSC Talks! Final podcast~Wrapping it Up & Thanks

    23 JUN. 2022 · Jill wraps up the podcast! I started in 2016 interviewing my kids and how they were affected by Tuberous Sclerosis Complex. It was absolutely divine inspiration from the start and branched out shortly after to interviewing community members and other professionals who worked with those affected. From there, I explored many different topics, providing information and resources in interview form, all with relevance to the individuas and/or parent/caregivers affected by a chronic illness like TSC. Pushing the boundaries of what was deemed "safe and effective" by our medical system, I continued to put info out there based on my own lived experience as a parent/caregiver living and dealing with what I'd come to discover is CPTSD if you want to use a label. It was my vision and still is that all "remedies" for improving the quality of life of all involved in the wheels of chronic illness, particularly one such as TSC which affects all the vital body organs, will be an option for all. Why should we hold back the river when there are so many speaking about how their lives have been impacted by sharing their truths, sharing what's worked for them and what potentially might help another ease the very real and almost daily traumas of attempting to live with an open heart and navigate our inverted systems of care. Many of these podcasts go against the grain of what people are comfortable hearing. There are always positive takeaways but there are some heavy heavy experiences that people are walking through and talking about and must be given voice. I think through honest conversation, and taking full responsibility for one's reactions to other's sharing from their most painful, heart-wrenching moments, we can begin to hear each other once again at least long enough to realize, we're all having vastly different experiences yet we all long to be here now, safe, loved, whole, home. Thanks for tuning in and being here there and everywhere. It's been the pleasure of a lifetime to have the opportunity to create and share this work. Love Jill

  • TSC Talks! Points of Light~Linsey Hurley~Holistic Health Coach Working with Cutting Edge Energy Healing Technologies "Silver Linings"

    28 MAR. 2022 · I met Linsey Hurley this past December when we both participate in a Freedom Flash Mob dance event at a local mall. It was a fun and powerful event, a group of locals suddenly bursting into dance and raising awareness of our right to medical freedom! So, I figured the people I met at this event were pretty special. I got a text from Linsey a few weeks ago and we got to chatting. She told me a bit about her business and this new patch she had been guided to that was quite interesting. At that point, I decided to invite her on the podcast to discuss and was quite impressed with what I learned, and the potential of this new tool, X39 patches. Linsey is a holistic health coach, and she has worked with cutting-edge energy healing technologies for many years. She was led to the alternative health field after her experience witnessing her sister go through stage 4 breast cancer within the mainstream health system. Despite her and her sister doing much research and finding alternative treatments which when suggested, were basically brushed off and ignored. This was over 40 years ago. She ultimately lost her sister, and faith in our conventional system, which explains the silver lining. Her sister inspires her and is with her every day and she is grateful for her impact on her life, ultimately pushing Linsey into utilizing and sharing these amazing healing energy devices and tools today! The rest of this story is in the podcast. See timestamps from the transcript below. If interested in learning more, you can reach out to Linsey at linsey@newview.org by phone at 9787937291.

She considers this a gift from her sister. 5:36 the mainstream narrative keeps us in fear and subservience with no energy to consider why we are here 5:57~Linsey’s sister is still with her 6:32~Start of discussion on X39 patches which support the body’s natural systems 7:23~the body is brilliant! We can support it in the way it wants to heal 7:45~FDA glitch at beginning of the pandemic, Linsey could not use regular tools such as the Beamer and was led to X39 patches 8:06~X39 patches are a frequency device that activates the body’s stem cells. 8:37~A discussion of exactly what stem cell therapy is, what’s involved, the expense, often making it inaccessible and usually used as a last-ditch effort when all else has failed 9:53~further explanation of the patch, non-transdermal, made of amino acids and salt crystals, activates different reactions In the body 10:36~the science is putting frequencies on the skin that cause other reactions leading to doing some healing 11:04~David Schmidt is a scientist who was hired by the Navy to develop a patch for Navy Seals to replace amphetamines 12:02~Linsey uses a lot of patches now she has all her grandchildren living with her~more patches have been developed 12:24~David Schmidt brought this technology to a friend who was a coach of UCLA swimming, he’s been developing and working on it ever since. Different patches are all based on the frequency 13:15~X39 patch is the holy grail -activates GHK Copper Peptides that decline with age 14:10~It’s just actually about age reversal, have had a 70-year-old test with the body of a 50-year-old 15:00~Helps with all kinds of degenerative diseases, many testimonials, MS, Parkinson’s 16:17~comparison of different frequency devices, AO Scan, Beamer, all are wonderful and if possible used right now to get through these times when we are bombarded with energies, 5G, EMF… 17:20~Linsey had an autoimmune disorder, 15-20 years ago, had to quit her job, “3-year retreat”, trusted spirit, found Kangen water, another healing modality which was expensive but a good investment as she was able to heal. 20:29~Our healthcare systems are frustrating, organ-based, siloed, going from one drug to the next, Band-Aid instead of getting at the deeper reason for illness, no quality of life 22:06~Doctors educated at medical schools funded by big pharma and are taught nothing in regards to energy even though they use technology like MRIs which could be used in healing 23:18 Bruce Lipton~Placebo effect 24:00~Potential for special needs communities is huge with these patches, also for parents and caregivers 24:21~Only restriction is not to use the patches during chemotherapy as it will detox the chemo 25:05 If the patch effect is too strong, take it off for a few hours. Linsey’s experience with retracing 26:36~You won’t want to stop, you will see a decrease in results if you do not continue use, Linsey is very upfront about this. This is an out-of-the-box business paradigm and opportunity!

  • TSC Talks! Points of Light~Part Two~Leigh Anne Bianchi, Founder of Good Citizenship Project, Activating Good Citizens

    12 MAR. 2022 · SEE SHOW NOTES FOR PART ONE FOR MORE DETAIL! I had the pleasure of interviewing Leigh Anne Bianchi, Founder of Good Citizenship Project recently on TSC Talks. She was joined by her business manager Carla Bell. We had a free ranging discussion covering many topics but all regarding the benefits of the sort of unconventional programming Leigh Anne has developed through GCP and how this meets many of the huge gaping unmet needs for those individuals diagnosed with autism and other special needs that our systems of care have become too siloed and disconnected to address. “Developing a sense of meaning and purpose, social-emotional skills, work ethic, and peer relationships by volunteering, distributing donations, and supporting local farms.” For more information on Good Citizenship Project, FB page: https://www.facebook.com/GoodCitizenshipProject/ phone: (508) 868-0293 email: leighanne.bianchi143@gmail.com Timestamps for part 2: 0-52 Intro 00:54- Antonio’s Waitress Olivia treats them like humans, the start of the discussion on sexuality and special needs 2:26 All the PC of working w/special needs has made sexuality issues really challenging. People taken advantage of, they are developmentally younger and no one talks about this 5:03 Karaoke, real-world situations help 5:28 Dashboard confessionals, you can say stuff without eye contact when conversations about penises and vaginas come out. Pediatricians recommend using scientific wording, Leigh Anne took all the training on autism/special needs and sexuality and can talk candidly. 9:27 Why questions, keep asking them. See the question behind the action. One client wanted to see Leigh Anne’s breasts, curiosity, she didn’t react or file a report but discussed it with him. So many lives could be ruined if everything is flagged as inappropriate. This population never gets to ask questions 11:06 Leigh Anne had to spend 5 minutes spend w/individual who had sex offender charges in ISP and Leigh Anne knew charges were not true-example 13:16 Paying for Good Citizenship Project….if you have an autism diagnosis, sometimes easier to get funding, agencies often don’t want to pick up those with autism but things changing and agencies can help you get funding to cover through DESE/Wraparound Family Services, Public Partnerships through Participant directed programming conduit, Private pay, PCA funds, DDS Family Respite funds 20:11 Leigh Anne should be paid more for all she offers. Charges $30/hour but will work with families. Leigh Anne does not have a BCBA or other letters after the name that would allow her to be recognized as a service agent but has the lived experience and work experience to exceed those with mere education 23:26 Becoming a non-profit would mean more strings attached, Johnny her horse would have to be certified as a therapy horse, her dog a pit bull mix, too many hoops to jump through. Jack couldn’t have used a log splitter! 26:31 Investor/philanthropist would be ideal with no strings attached. Leigh Anne took a chance w/Camp Marshall, wanting to partner and have it be her home base. If associated with an agency the volunteers would need to get paid. All benefits from GCP are not recognized as beneficial for many who don’t understand the depth of what she does. 31:31 Work to ride is an option or unpaid internship/apprenticeship. So much happens in learning these farm skills that is energetic…deciding how to perform tasks and learning from any mistakes, having the freedom to learn from mistakes like using a pitchfork instead of a shovel for a particular job… 34:21 Farmers giving the flexibility to figure out the approach to completing a job is helpful. So then it’s not regimented, can focus on the end results, not the niggling details and farmwork facilitates executive functioning in this area. Learning at the moment, the Montessori approach is part of Leigh Anne’s process 37:31 Give individual rules, allow them to screw up and figure it out is more powerful than reading how to do something in a book or being told what to do. Forced problem solving, you remember you had to take a different approach. This is empowering! 40:46 GCP NEEDS MONEY TO EXPAND! Fundraisers coming soon. Discussion of fundraisers 43:36 Looking for a home base with specific parameters. She needs to bring her animals. This has been challenging, small private barns are nervous to have special needs population-liability. Leigh Anne looking for a life in a caretaker position 46:21 Jack came in (Jill’s son who participates in GCP). Leigh Anne is looking for a situation where most of the labor at the new setting is done by members of the GCP. She screens applicants for a good match, meets parents and individuals, gives a grace period. Wants it known GCP is a for-profit not an agency. 49:01 But Leigh Anne is more than a job coach. The people she supports are part of her family. “So you want me to pay for you to force my kid to do slave labor” is some people’s attitude. No, they are learning transformative, resume-worthy skills. 51:11 Leigh Anne went to Salter College, able to be successful b/c was focused on one thing. There is real value in jobs that don’t require a degree. People do not see the scope of autism…Ford Motor Co was seeking to hire those on the Autism spectrum b/c of attention to detail/focus. 55:11 One of the goals of GCP is to raise awareness of what an autistic person looks like which has spread by word of mouth, inspiring others to think outside of the box in creating programs for this population. B/c of relationships developed through GCP, Leigh Anne has options-a temporary place to live if needed “if you do good things, they come back”. In our society many expect something in return for every little thing 60:11 Carla Bell is Leigh Anne’s business manager, helping her with a business plan and fundraising has worked in special ed Thanks so much for listening!!! https://tsctalks.com

  • TSC Talks! Points of Light~Part One~Leigh Anne Bianchi, Founder of Good Citizenship Project, Activating Good Citizens

    11 MAR. 2022 · I had the pleasure of interviewing Leigh Anne Bianchi, Founder of Good Citizenship Project recently on TSC Talks. She was joined by her business manager Carla Bell. We had a free ranging discussion covering many topics but all regarding the benefits of the sort of unconventional programming Leigh Anne has developed through GCP and how this meets many of the huge gaping unmet needs for those individuals diagnosed with autism and other special needs that our systems of care have become too siloed and disconnected to address. “Developing a sense of meaning and purpose, social-emotional skills, work ethic, and peer relationships by volunteering, distributing donations, and supporting local farms." In my opinion, what she shares are gems of vital importance. AS someone who carries a diagnosis of Autism AND has worked within our siloed and disconnected systems of care, she gets it on a whole new level. What is missing, what is needed. One of her most important assets is her ability to ask why and watch, observe what is going on without judgment or preconceived notions based on dogmatic teachings not relevant to real life. Leigh Anne IS real life. She knows how what and why to reach and engage kids who have often had no one their entire lives really see them. The energetics of the interactions are often the most important part and the very part of our offspring’s with special needs education that is rarely observed or explored. To do so freely requires unconventional programming and thinking and IS what will give these individuals deep embedded experience to carry forward and integrate into every aspect of their lives. Priceless. So that being said, this is one of the most important discussions I’ve had to date on TSC Talks personally as my son Jack has benefitted immensely from participating in this sort of immersive, apprenticeship experience gaining valuable skills, both tangible and energetic. Here’s a recent description of gains made: “There's A LOT going on there when we're together. Not just the obvious, like physical fitness, and employment-based objectives, but Distress Tolerance, Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, time management, generalizing skills, problem-solving.... learning how and when NOT to answer back to an authority figure. (Instead of saying, "I know," or "I was going to do that," when he clearly wasn't, just saying "OK.") We address that OFTEN. Staying on topic, being able to complete a task WHILE socializing... Another example is planning. Looking at the task at hand (like cleaning a pen or stall) and being able to decide which tools you're going to need (the pen might require a garden rake and a metal pitchfork, vs. an aluminum shovel and a plastic pitchfork for the stall), and how to efficiently complete the task. Right now, he tends to be on autopilot at Jesse's, because he's done it before, and knows what tools to use. But if we go to a different barn/farm, he will sometimes just walk into the stall without any tools or automatically grab the tools that he'd use as Jesse's. But Jesse has brand-new rubber stall mats under the shavings, whereas other barns might have hard, packed-down dirt that is uneven, old, warped stall mats, or even slab cement under the shavings, which impacts the tools needed for the job. Additionally, the concept of 'using your head to save your feet and planning out the technique or way you're going to do something....like cleaning the stall of the older horse first so that you can put him in there to eat first since it takes him so long. Or, turning on the hose as you walk by it upon arrival, so you don't have to go all the way back out to the spigot when you're ready to fill waters” You get the idea.

Animals get it 9:52 Meeting Johnny-“he chose me”, a sucker for the underdog, …both dogs rescues, cats and house chicken! 12:12 Leigh Anne’s challenges-struggled through school, awareness of being different 12:47 Post grad programs-infuriating and necessary-started with good intentions but people not honest with students about reality 14:57 4 years in post grad almost wasted, doing worksheets, Leigh Anne shares story of a girl she worked with having to do preschool puzzles 17:02 Toileting-EIP avoided b/c it was assumed she was not going to ever use toilet but Leigh Anne noticed underdeveloped musculature~ “It’s amazing what you can figure out if you just pay attention a little bit” BCBA determines course of her future…. on a different track if cannot use toilet! 17:10 we need more people like you who presume competence! 19:57 Leigh Anne can see birds eye view on why the life skills programs are the way they are..too many kids, squeaky wheel/most intense needs, profound symptoms get attention and people with milder, more subtle issues fly under the radar 22:22 stop and look at why? Leigh Anne gives example with woman from Belchertown-only thing she could control was her bowels so used incontinence …give options and let her choose and always ask WHY is this happening? 26:02 So many things were out of young lady’s control, diagnosis can be a tool and a knife that cuts both ways 27:32 having a diagnosis can be helpful if you can handle it… 28:37 Rose colored glasses, person first language and pendulum swung other way for those turning 22. Leigh Anne thinks there should be required classes for parents, so they know what to expect when turning 22 and transitioning to adult services, etc. 32:29 Leigh Anne is UNCONVENTIONAL!! Case loads at DDS extreme, high turnover, problems with adequate staffing in group homes 33:16 GCP (good citizenship project) Started when she was working as a program coordinator at Seven Hills, minimal consequences for behavior with not realistic environment. Folks turning 22 smart, capable wonderful kids with potential and no self-awareness skills, minimal options 37:32 Nonprofit/volunteering issues, for profit volunteer issues, liability issues, not a lot of places for GCP so L.A. developed plan that you could not join GCP unless you had good attendance, no aggression, pitched to Phil Philbin (former head of Aspire) and GCP was started at Seven Hills 41:40 First event was a chili cook off, building community relations, thank firefighters, get constructive feedback, also hosted Friendsgiving, kids did all the work 43:44 GCP-you do nice things for other people without expectation of anything in return” You feel good when you do good things, and it will come back to you 46:32 Info on finding GCP, see above, no requirements for joining, Leigh Anne’s rules0deal with circumstances, weather, not for faint of heart, hard work 49:26 Jack’s response to GCP amazing. “A taste of success” from Better Off Dead 😊 get instant rewards with animals and practice. Very empowering 55:07 Emu Jersey is goofy, no boundaries, will nibble on jacket, kids will allow b/c it’s not a person so a way to practice 58:09 Leigh Anne was a Case manager, and she would never read up on clients b/c you form judgments 59:26 If you have a diagnosis and an IEP you’ve been taught how to judge first and think later 59:51 Leigh Anne wants members of GCP to have a sense of meaning and purpose, know how to speak up for themselves in an effective way 1:00:39 Jack, example fear of failing, etc 1:02:14 Unintended goals, squelching learned helplessness, parents often tired and will not give time for child to learn on their own 1:05:02Farm a great template, you need to keep yourself safe, level of self-responsibility required but they can find it! 1:07:09 Blend in to neurotypical, Leigh Anne wants to give tools, so life is not so difficult. Examples shared 1:08:37 Restaurant example-this population is not used to choosing, having discussions at a restaurant, taking pressure off Stay tuned for Part 2!

  • TSC Talks! Points of Light~Bryan M. Henry, Founder of Together We Ascend-"Connected to Love"

    2 MAR. 2022 · In this episode titled "Connected to Love" I had the pleasure of interviewing Bryan M. Henry, Founder of Together We Ascend, an organization and community that is on the mission of assisting in collective ascension, and the co-creation of more harmonious and prosperous world for all. To this aim, Bryan and the Together We Ascend team is uniting and activating lightworkers through the Ascend Academy. Bryan also is Creator/Producer of "Awaken with Bryan Henry"~ a podcast. Bryan is indeed connected to love and what he communicates in this podcast is just that as well as how we all are connected to love in the deepest and most complete of ways. Giving others an assist in rediscovering this conneciton is what Bryan is called to do. I got the chance to learn this first hand when I came across his Ascend Academy almost a year ago and booked my first session with Bryan. From there our connection grew, and I have been working with him for the last seven months. The recent intuitive podcasting workshop evolved out of our work together. Here's one of Bryan's opening statements, "so I know that you you sent me a little bit of preliminary questions to kind of prepare myself but I feel like the best thing I could have done to prepare my pair myself was drop into here, and that chest region in that body to feel and rather than have some pre scripted answer. Sure what felt most inspiring in this moment. Perfect. That feels like today is the story of a guy that loves to serve, loves to be in service of others loves to contribute, loves to witness transformation take place before his eyes. I've over the course of my journey have come to my perspectives, my beliefs around what goes into living a joyous, filling and exciting life. And part of what that entails for me is being in service to something bigger than oneself. When I look back to all of my experiences, the accumulation of everything I've been through all of the best ones came from being connected to love and making it more about giving then getting. And the irony becomes when you find yourself centered in this space of wanting to give for you get to experience the joy and fulfillment that comes from that. You begin to realize that the giving and receiving are ultimately the same thing."

Internally directed 40:05 Internally driven, my decisions come from internal references -how important it becomes to attune to internal compass that we already have 41:33 We all have a different balance, changing sense of balance. Recognize there is no right way to be-what may be right for you at one point is not in another, check in 45:15 In the flow-find out what works for you! Stuff shared by others, learn from it, but go within 45:59 Meditation would benefit everyone~Bryan's fundamental practice-using meditation as a means to attune ourselves w/our own internal guidance system 48:02 Attuning to and aligning with that internal compass 49:59 If you are listening to highest self, probably not in comfort zone 51:16 So many variables, do not lean on external world 52:12 Bryan's "pitch" We all have purpose to serve and are here for a reason 54:49 We deserve what we want, we are so worthy "bring higher awareness -we are infinite spiritual beings, but also we're human beings with desires" 57:24 Ascend Academy, space for community to come together and explore everything, Bryan loves finding people to come on and teach, and is stepping back into role as a teacher and leader 58:52 Bryan here to share/teach and give Thank you for listening!!

  • TSC Talks! Points of Light, Lisa Smith-Advocate, Foster Parent, Mom, "All 100 Sheep"

    1 FEB. 2022 · I recently had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Lisa Smith recently on TSC Talks. I met Lisa through a mutual friend, as is explained in the podcast. I was thrilled to do a podcast with another special needs parent and local to Massachusetts. Lisa is a parent of 22 years old Nick, who experiences nonverbal autism, has adopted several children, and over the years has fostered 27. During our interview not only was Lisa able to draw from and articulate profound experiences and topics in such a way as to not only connect them to her lived experience, but she was also able to illustrate how she’s taken the time to integrate and utilize all of it to further evolve as a soul but to also facilitate trust, healing, and connection for all her children, biological, adopted and fostered. Her words tell the story, her faith guides her. One of the most important points of our discussion was the realization that it is not these children that are “lucky to have her,” but it is she that is lucky to have them. As a special needs parent myself, this awareness was a true turning point in my understanding of this divine assignment where I became the student and realized my children are my teachers, one that Lisa feels and experiences every day. “It’s biblical, she said at one point “And when I began to read the Bible, I had learned that some of my actual walks in life, were very biblical… There's a story that says, God got the 99 sheep, but there was one on the hill. He went back for that one. Most people in life. So God has designed me through my journey, not to forget the one.” “Presence, presence, and presence. And to me? Be present. People always say things like, oh, if I win the lottery, I will do that. And I always tell people all the time I won the lottery five times, five children and people say, oh, they're so lucky to have you, but really….How do I know that I'm going to take care of my disabled son someday? Right? How do I know they're not there to help me when I become disabled someday? We do not know, you know, so we, you know, and, and we don't do it for those selfish reasons. So, we don't do anything to get things, you know, and, and, you know, we do things because that's who we are and that's our heart.” I appreciated this podcast so much and hope you will too. I feel it was put in front of me by my higher self, as sound bite after sound bite so many of Lisa’s words not only related to me personally but also inspired and challenged me. Her faith in God is huge and expansive but she shares honestly the hard truths she’s faced personally to get to where she is now. Thanks, Lisa, for all the ways you are serving a higher calling and being willing to share your journey with me and this audience.

  • TSC Talks! Points of Light, James Davis of Bay Staters for Natural Medicine-"Advocacy from the Heart"

    28 ENE. 2022 · I had the pleasure of interviewing James Davis recently on TSC Talks. As you’ll hear in the podcast, we connected a little over a year ago when he was just getting started with Bay Staters for Natural Medicine and looking for volunteers. At that time, I’d been experimenting with microdosing psilocybin for mental health reasons, it was helping, and I thought I’d jump in. Life pulled me away from that volunteer work, but James made a profound impression on me, and I had the notion that he’d be successful in whatever he endeavored, particularly his advocacy around decriminalization of plant entheogens, as his passion, kindness, and honesty just stands out. When we connected to do the podcast, I was not surprised, but also surprised by the progress he and the growing team of volunteers he leads has made over the past year. He hits it home on so many topics within this pod, I thought it best just to include the full transcript. Thanks, James, for showing up, being such a divine-human and inspiring, and leading many to make a difference. Enjoy the pod!

They have mobilized over a thousand Massachusetts volunteers to decriminalize Somerville, Cambridge, Northampton, and Easthampton and have pending resolutions in Boston, Burlington (VT), Amherst, Worcester, Needham, Salem, and Medford. These resolutions decriminalize growing and selling plants like magic mushrooms, which reduce the risk of opioid addiction 55% after a single experience and have been proven to have statistically significant benefits for PTSD and depression. Their resolutions also end all controlled substance possession arrests, referring people for addiction treatment and committing our cities to invest in these services. In this episode, you will also learn about the other types of entheogenic plants and the power they hold to help us heal” Here's an excerpt from the transcript, the full transcript is available on the website. Here's an excerpt from the transcript, the full transcript is available here~https://tsctalks.com/tsc-talks-james-davis-transcript/ Jill W: [00:00:00] Hello, welcome to TSC talks. Your host, Jill Woodworth. Here. I am so glad to be with James Davis. He is a, he is a volunteer among other things, but my basis of meeting him was a volunteer and the leader of bay Staters for natural medicine. Just to give you a little background here before we get started, I'm going to read this, but. He's done tremendous work. I'm really excited to have him here. And I'll tell you how our paths crossed in a minute, but he's the leader for Bay Staters for natural medicine. They've mobilized over a thousand Massachusetts volunteers to decriminalize Somerville, Cambridge, North Hampton. East Hampton pending resolutions in Boston, Burlington, Vermont Amhurst, Worcester, Needham, Salem, and Medford. These resolutions… resolutions, decriminalize growing and selling plants like magic mushrooms, which reduce the risk of opioid addiction. 55% after a single experience and have been proven to, have [00:01:00] statistically significant benefits for PTSD and depression. The resolutions also end all controlled substance possession arrests, referring people for addiction treatment and committing our cities to invest in these services. Let's see. And your day job, you're a legislative director to, Massachusetts state rep the chairs, the legislator’s cannabis committee, and formally did legislative work for the city council of Berkeley. You have a master's degree in public administration from USC and a BA in economics and history from Columbia and your views do not necessarily represent your employer. One thing that I read in what I was researching you a little bit, was your personal connection? Actually, no, I'll let you go into it. So yeah. Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself and about the advocacy work that you're doing and we will roll from. James D: Thanks, James, thank you so much for having me, Jill. I'm really excited to chat and I am really [00:02:00] grateful for the support you showed for bay Staters. When we were just a 10 follower Instagram group. We only started about a year and some months ago. And at that stage, We were just weirdos, emailing our city councils, sharing our stories with plant medicine. We took the philosophy that we didn't need to fundraise a lot of money. We didn't need to even have a website active to just start doing this advocacy work and start speaking from the heart. And you know, what this has snowballed into is really, really awesome and beautiful and all the lessons we've learned along the way and advocacy. About the medicines themselves just from meeting so many people whose lives have been changed with this psilocybin experience or an MDMA experiment experience or an LSD experience. So just really honored to be here and really glad that we met too. Yeah. Thanks. Yeah. To tell you a little bit more about who I [00:03:00] am. I know you mentioned all those credentials Yeah, they really don't define who I am. I would say. So I, I grew up in Kansas in a trailer park that was on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. So all the middle-class kids lived on one side of a Walmart supercenter. And then I lived on the side that was mostly liquor stores and churches and run-down streets. So. I was raised by my mom my biggest inspiration in life and she Growing up was always working multiple jobs to make ends me really inspire me to work hard as well. And then she was dealing with a lot of intergenerational trauma herself. Her father had served in the Pacific theater, the Korean war, and Vietnam. And. There was just a lot of, a lot of trauma that she had picked up from childhood and then relationships stemming from, from being a young woman and just growing [00:04:00] alongside her. It really shaped me into the person I am today and made me really compassionate to help people who are struggling in poverty who have that intergenerational trauma. So that's why I think fundamentally this line of work emerged from. Full transcript available at https://tsctalks.com

    5 ENE. 2022 · I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Kimrâh Minuty recently on TSC Talks. We had a free-flowing conversation with the main inquiry being how has her lived experience prepared her to step more fully into her soul’s purpose. As an Author, Poet, Ascension Coach, podcaster, clear channel, communicator, Mother, (and more) she has signed on for many roles in this lifetime. She went into great detail sharing the events of her life relating it to what she was learning through each experience. We went on a few sidetracks, which always circled back to the main topic beautifully. Her sense of humor, depth, and powerful presence, plus her excellent oratorical skills made this a fantastic, detailed conversation that fed my soul.

    TSC Talks! A Wrench In The Gears of Love

    1 NOV. 2021 · JIll gives a synopsis of why, in her opinion, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex -"benign" tumors in every vital organ, probably every organ of the body, should be a template for shining a light on the cracks in our systems of care, AND illuminating a new path forward. Factoring in the energetics of TSC, aka the emotional experience involved in living with and/or advocating for someone with this condition will connect the dots, between the visible manifestations and the invisible manifestations and how the interplay of mind-body-spirit, and our growing understanding of it, does influence outcomes. This should all be remembered and cataloged! Jill walks a razor's edge close to her breaking point at times, for good reason. She is playing her long game and knows that sharing the joys and pains of our experience with the energetics of TSC, IS worth being shared. We as a kind...humankind, do not seem to understand that when you throw a wrench in the gears, metaphorically, in a bodily organ, it has the potential to negate years of devoted attention to observing, and one is at risk of getting caught like a wrench in the gears yourself, in the complicated way that loving someone with TSC makes your heart grow. At the same time as you realize the many challenges, disconnects, miracles, tragedies, grief, loss, anger, fears, with which all affected have been faced and the frustration to integrate the full lived experience in such a way that you can build on this knowledge and heal and move forward to a place where there is hope that the full monty of managing this condition was understood and valued by our systems of care for the deep knowledge it provides and the chance to improve on what we know, for humankind forever. And you still love it all anyway. It goes easier if you have to accept that a wrench may be thrown in the gears...at any given moment, and undo everything you may have done for years on end, and hold onto your deep inner wisdom that you are here for a reason, you are deeply worthy of speaking out loud when things with which you are faced don't make sense, when there are no good answers and life is dragging you to the edge of the drain of despair daily. You know this, live it, get up and show up and still find love is the answer and the way through, but boy oh boy, please listen to me, listen to us, and value our deep lived experience coupled with the depths of love we have harvested in our hearts and learn. If I/we/you can walk through this, we all can. I love you. Title inspired by Alison McDowell and her blog, https://wrenchinthegears.com

    TSC Talks! The Shadow and The Light~A Monologue

    1 NOV. 2021 · Driving to get her daughter on Halloween, Jill gives an unplugged, unedited monologue, on the energetics of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex related to her personal lived experience. How considering and understanding "energetics" applicable to many chronic illnesses, -the frustrations, joys, the feelings, thoughts and emotions that are involved are equally, if not more important than to that which we can easily see, and apply logic and clinical principles. Gahhh! There's so much more that we don't tap that would help. Help empower the entire community realize their own strength and what we are walking through daily, what we have learned and what we know. Creating a partnership with those in the system upon whom many must currently depend for care. She discusses the importance of being present, how challenging this can be, and how using your intuition can be the gateway to presence. Overall, how incredibly important it is to consider the energetics of chronic illness including family dynamics when navigating one's role as an affected individual, parent, or caregiver. Love to all out there walking these rugged paths in our very broken systems of care, those within the systems trying to help, and those of us who have disempowered ourselves thinking it would serve a greater good when it has only made us discount what we know in our heart and soul.
