Carl David talks to host Craig Price about his book about suicide and suicide prevention.

Suicide is an awful thing. Not only is a tragedy for the person who commits the act but the aftermath can destroy families and a leave a wake of pain affecting everyone left behind. What started as a love letter to his father quickly turned into a cathartic exploration of a family surviving suicide. The book, Bader Field: How My Family Survived Suicide, reveals the story of how a family endured struggle and torment after a suicide, and their fight to survive. David uses the book as an outlet to ‘pay it forward’ and help others cope with depression and suicidal tendencies. The author wants for those who are suffering to know that though they may feel lonely, they are not alone.

Episode 175 – Dan Nevins – Yoga / audio

Yoga

Dan Nevins (@DanNevins on twitter) returns to discuss yoga with host Craig Price. Past guest (episode 97) Dan sits down with Craig in Washington DC for what Craig thought would be an informative chat about yoga but became an emotional story of coping with depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and discovery.  Being a popular speaker for the Wounded Warrior Project, Dan was afraid to ask anyone for help when he started to get depressed because so many saw him as a role model of recovery and perseverance.  It can be hard to ask for help because just showing a crack of your humanity to others can make them think you’re really in trouble when in fact, you just need someone to listen. Thankfully Dan found yoga and it has transformed his life and has shown him new ways to heal, get over his own doubts and shame and help his fellow soldiers deal with their PTSD. Of course Craig can’t be all serious so they discuss downward dog, passing gas in class and more. He even commits to a yoga class with Dan! An unexpectedly touching, emotional and real conversation with a person who has normal struggles just like the rest of us despite his inspiring story and life. A can’t miss episode for sure.

SPECIAL EVENT: This August 20th, 2015 at 6pm EST, join Dan in Bryant Park in New York City as he attempts to break the record for the world’s largest yoga class. Go to http://flavorpill.com/nyc/event/classes/bryant-park-yoga-thursday-august-20-2015 to RSVP for this FREE class.
