A Podcast Interview with Theresa C. Dintino

Recently I was interviewed for the Twisting the Plot Podcast. You can listen to that interview here.  Twisting the Plot: New Possibilities for Women over 50. is the brainchild of Dr.Cecilia Dintino and Hannah Murray, both psychotherapists with years of experience in many modalities including Drama Therapy, who noticed when they reached a certain age that there was no roadmap for women over 50. Or … the ones that existed were less than exciting.

Membranes of Hope: A Guide to Attending to the Spiritual Boundaries that Keep Lifesystems Healthy from the Personal to the Cosmic
by Theresa C. Dintino

“I write to figure things out.This was proving to be true once again. The push for us to work with the membranes is because of this: The soul of things are at risk.

     All of life is alive and ensouled. And the earth is as well. She has many membranes that surround and protect her interiority, her soul. By tending to and caring for her soul, we support and strengthen her membranes.”

Using Folktales and Puppets to do Boundary Work with Children

This is a follow on to my previous blog posts on Membrane/Boundary Work Parts One through Four.

I find that it is more effective with younger children to use play, stories, and games to get across key teachings rather than a cognitive approach. In part three I presented the Rope Circle Exercise version for Respecting & Supporting Other People’s Membranes/Boundaries. Then I introduced the Start/Stop exercise. These can be very effective with children.

In my previous blog post titled Membrane/Boundary Work Part Two I talked about human boundaries/membranes and how we have to learn good boundaries, sometimes as an adult if we didn’t grow up being trained and supported in having good boundaries. I then suggested several exercises. If you haven’t read that post, I suggest you do that now and do the exercises, then come back here.

In my previous blog post titled Membrane/Boundary Work & Mother Earth’s Healing Power

I shared some background about membranes and communication systems in nature and in humans and then described a win-win process we can use to heal ourselves and nature around us. Now I want to talk about boundary keeping and give some more exercises.
