This episode is a tribute to our guest, the late Psalm Isadora, who tragically took her own life March 26th, 2017, a mere 45 days after the date of this recording.

Psalm was a teacher, author, and speaker who taught sexual healing through workshops, videos, documentaries, and training.

This show, as well as the majority of her life's work, was based on recovering from trauma and shame through the exploration and expression of our sexuality. 

During the interview she spoke candidly about her own childhood sexual abuse, and her lifelong struggles with depression, as well as with drugs and alcohol. These are issues with which I have had so much personal experience, that this discussion has had a lasting impact on me since the time of the recording.  

Looking back now, just over a month after her passing it's more clear to me now than ever how important it is for us as a culture to embrace and openly discuss our common issues with shame and sexuality, and to support one another in overcoming the sense of isolation that so often accompanies these common aspects of human life. Through courageously exploring our inner demons, and seeking to better understand ourselves and those around us, we stand a much better chance of overcoming the trauma and shame that is holding so many of us back from living a life of harmony, happiness, fulfillment, and lasting intimacy with our chosen partners. 

This was the crux of Psalms' message. May this episode serve as a continuation of her life's work, and an inspiration to the thousands of fans and students she left behind. 

With deep reverence, I offer my prayers and blessings to Psalm, and her friends and family. May god rest her soul.
