80: Tapping Into Logosynthesis® and the Power of Words with Dr. Laurie Weiss

Words are fabulous. If you think about it, they have the power to absolutely transform, provoke, captivate, and heal us. My next guess inspires us all to tap into the wealth of knowledge already within us.

Dr. Laurie Weiss, psychotherapist, coach and relationship communication expert has helped more than 60,000 individuals reclaim life energy and find joy in life for more than five decades. She has taught professionals in 13 countries and authored 13 books that make complex information accessible to anyone. Her latest, Embrace Prosperity: Resolve Blocks to Experiencing Abundance, teaches a powerful way to dissolve self-limiting beliefs.

Think meditation is hard. Do me a favor, take a slow, deep breath in, and now breathe out. Congratulations, you just meditated. Hi, I’m Krystal Jacosky, and this is Breathe In. Breathe out a weekly mindfulness and meditation podcast for anyone ready to own their own shit and find a little peaceful while doing it.  

Krystal Jakosky:   Welcome back to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jacosky and I’m really excited to share this week’s episode with you. I first met Kevin Pinnell when I was a guest on his podcast, which is Award A Better Life. It was such a delightful experience. We had so many things in common that I really wanted to bring him on my podcast so that we could talk about the indigenous people. Kevin began his journey with the indigenous people of North America in the early nineties. He met Ken two feathers early on in that journey, and Ken Two Feathers became more than Kevin’s teacher. They had a wonderful friendship. And 10 years into that friendship, Kevin wrote the book, Two Feathers, Spiritual Seed Planter as Kevin Laughing Hawk, which addressed two feathers life and Native American spirituality. There is so much more to his experience and his life. This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. We’re going to talk about some of the keynotes of Kevin’s experience. I really hope that you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed having him on my podcast. Hello, and welcome back to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky, your host, and I am so excited to have Kevin on our show today. Kevin Cannell, welcome.  

Kevin Pennell:    Thank you. Great to be here. This is awesome. I’ve switched roles for a change. I’m not a host. I’m actually a guest. 

Krystal Jakosky:    Oh, isn’t that fun? When you get to switch it up a little bit. Kevin and I have actually been recording right now because whenever we have the opportunity to chat, Kevin and I go off on so many different tangents and so many different realms, and it’s because we are both interested in so many different things. We are always looking for something new to learn or something new to teach, which means that we have a plethora of things that we can talk about and go down rabbit hole after rabbit hole after rabbit hole. So we’re going to make an effort to keep this a little shorter, meaning not four hours long, because we could talk for hours.

Kevin Pennell:    We’re going to try to focus.  

Krystal Jakosky:    We’re going to give it the college try, you know, the good college. Not the one where you smoke pot for the first four years and then decide to do college. We’re going to actually try to focus. Welcome to my world today. Kevin, tell us a little bit about yourself, who you are and what brought you to my podcast studio.  

Kevin Pennell:    Oh my goodness. Well, if you got about two or three hours, hang in there. It’s just actually been about a year ago that I decided, I’m going to try doing a podcast because for 35 years off and on, I was in broadcast journalism and radio. So I just have a lot of fun with it. And I published a book, worked on a couple of other books, and did some magazine articles. I love to write, but for whatever reason, the publisher just wasn’t impressed. Okay, this is great, but you’re not going to publish it. It’s good stuff, but we’re not going to publish it. And I’m going, Yeah, fine, whatever. And I realized part of writing is you have to be able to accept a little two letter word called no.  

Oh, that’s standard procedure. And I just, in one of those moments, I said, you know, I did broadcast journalism and I did human interest stories for years. I really enjoy doing that, just listening and talking with people about their lives. And literally, I think it was like 3:30 or 4:30 in the morning. That tends to be what I call my spirit time. Some of the most significant little truths that I’ve ever had. The title for the book that I wrote came to me in the middle of the night. And when I wrote that book, I wrote it from five o’clock in the morning until 6:30 every day until I got done with it. But that’s my spirit time. This time it came through as you need to do a podcast called Toward a Better Life.

Think meditation is hard? Do me a favor. Take a slow deep breath in and now breathe out. Congratulations! You just meditated. Hi, I’m Krystal Jakosky and this is Breathe In, Breathe Out, a weekly mindfulness and meditation podcast for anyone ready to own their own shit and find a little peace while doing it. 

Krystal Jakosky: Hello and welcome to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky. It’s a beautiful day and I hope you’re doing something fun and enjoyable or relaxing while you tune in. This week I got to interview Dr. Laurie Weiss, who is a psychotherapist coach and relationship communication expert. This woman is fantastic. She’s actively in her eighties, and she has so much world experience when she was getting ready to retire around the age of 70. She came across this new thing called Logosynthesis and it completely derailed her retirement plans and made her think I’m gonna keep going for a while. She’s written many books and she’s just amazing. She’s helped more than 60,000 individuals reclaim life energy and find joy in life. For more than five decades. She’s taught professionals in 13 countries and authored 13 books that make complex information accessible to anyone. Her latest one is “Embrace Posterity: Resolve Blocks to Experiencing Abundance” and it teaches a powerful way to dissolve self-limiting beliefs. She’s a delight. She was fun to chit-chat with, and I hope that you enjoy listening to both of us in our interview. 

Krystal Jakosky: Hello, and welcome back to Breathe In, Breathe Out. I’m Krystal Jakosky and I am so excited to have Dr. Laurie Weiss with us today. Welcome.  

Dr. Laurie Weiss: Thank you. It’s a delight to be here.  

Krystal Jakosky: <laugh> Dr. Laurie Weiss. You, you were a psychotherapist. You were like a clinical therapist for how many years?  

Dr. Laurie Weiss: Well, I’ve barely given it up. It’s been over 50 years. <laugh> and it’s a psychotherapist. Yeah.  

Krystal Jakosky: What, what got you into that? Tell me about your life story and what brought you to this point in your fantastically young life?  

Dr. Laurie Weiss: Well, I, I didn’t get to be a psychotherapist on purpose. It was, it was a, it was an accident, literally. I, I was a teacher and I discovered transactional analysis. I’m okay. You’re okay. And had a transformational experience, you know, it was just, wow. You know, and, oh, I could do this and this and this and this, that hadn’t yet been done, cuz it was a pretty new deal at the time. It “I’m okay. You’re okay.” for people who don’t know parent, adult, and child, anyhow, uh, I was so excited by it. I wanted to learn anything I could and at the time the only training available was clinical training. And so I talked my Read More
