TNW32: Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life with Cristin Downs

TNW32: Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life with Cristin Downs

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I give you a taste of the Super U Summit with my talk: Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life.

Super U Summit 4.0 begins on May 6th, but if you’ve never attended before, you might not be sure if it’s for you. That’s why I decided to give you a taste of the summit with my talk from Super U 3.0 – Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life. The Super U Summit is all about empowering women, and in this talk, I take aim at the thought patterns that are determining the actions you take. Might you be stuck because your thoughts are actually keeping you there? Until we examine them, we don’t really know. 

This talk is for anyone who has ever been stuck, and they’re not sure why.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • What the Super U Summit is
  • What it means to disrupt our thoughts
  • How our thoughts determine our judgments determine our actions
  • How we can examine what we think
  • How we can get started changing what we think
  • How you can sign up for the summit (right here!)

About Cristin Downs

Cristin Downs is an alchemist, theatrical thinker, producer, educator, speaker, and podcaster. She rules her tiny roost at Pace University as the director of the continuing studies unit. She’s had a pretty eclectic career, but moments that truly defined her sense of self: becoming a strong woman leader and independent thinker at Cedar Crest College, learning arts exceptionalism at UC Irvine’s School of the Arts, experiencing first-rate business processes with the mouse at Disneyland Resort, and becoming an activist at Riverside Church. Meeting Ruby Dee, Robert Downey Jr., James Earl Jones, Ntozake Shange, and Dana Reeve were all fairly awesome moments. Cristin loves to read, the theatre, dancing in the kitchen, and her family and friends.

What to Expect When the Unexpected Happens

What to Expect When the Unexpected Happens

HEALTHCARE ADVOCATE, HEALER, AND ARTIST NANCY NETHERLAND

The Notable Woman is proud to present the Super U Summit, 30 empowering women speakers over 10 days.

In this Super U Summit Talk, healthcare advocate Nancy Netherland explores ways to find wellness and laughter in the unexpected worst of times. 

WHO’S NANCY?

Nancy is a healthcare advocate and a mom-ologist with on-the-mom training in infectious disease, hepatology, rheumatology, gastrointestinology, and glitterology.  She is also a healer and an artist.  

She is the mama to two kids 10 and 12 living with rare and incurable diseases. Nancy sits on the State of California’s Children’s Health Advisory Panel for Medicaid, the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Chronic Illness Clinic Advisory Council, serves as an ambassador for the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute, and is getting certified as a Health Coach through the Duke School of Integrative Medicine’s Health Coaching and the Center for Mind Body Medicine’s certification programs so she can extend the reach of this work. She wants all families who live with a chronic and life-limiting pediatric illness to have access to wellness resources.  

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE TALK TOPIC

From Nancy: This talk is an invitation to explore ways to experience post-traumatic growth and to find wellness and laughter in the worst of times. In less than a year – I lost my husband, my 4 year old’s liver began to fail, and my 3 year old was diagnosed with what was later discovered to be a very rare, chronic, incurable, life-limiting and potentially lethal illness. 80% of us (probably more) are exposed to traumatic events or experiences during our lives and yet few resources exist to navigate these experiences from the perspective of wellness. I set out to mindfully navigate the unexpected, and even tragic, while embracing magic, joy, and resiliency.

AUTHOR AND LIFE COACH STEPHANIE NICHOLS

The Notable Woman is proud to present the Super U Summit, 30 empowering women speakers over 10 days.

In this Super U Summit Talk, author Stephanie Nichols teaches us how to “create your calm” as a mom.

WHO’S STEPHANIE?

Stephanie is a first-time author from southeastern Wisconsin. She loves to travel with her two sweet boys and reads self-help books for fun. She is known for her passionate personality and telling it like it is. She is a strong believer in the ripple effect. She believes that if we moms can do the work it takes to find that calm and heart-centered place inside ourselves, we can make a difference in the lives of our children. Her mission as a Life Coach is to help overwhelmed moms learn how to take back their lives without feeling guilty in the process. She’s working to create a world where moms stop judging and comparing and start living their best lives.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE TALK TOPIC

From Stephanie: We can move away from comparisons and expectations to become the mom we want to be. This talk will help you create your calm as you ask yourself these questions:

First, what’s not working right now? Then ask yourself, what kind of mom do you want to be? How do you want to show up as a mom when your kids do something they shouldn’t or don’t do what they’re supposed to? You get to decide who you want to be as a mom.
