The Narcissist in Your Life Podcast is hosted by Linda Martinez-Lewi, Ph.D., clinical expert on the narcissistic personality, psychotherapist and author. I offer in-depth analysis, strategies and practices for those psychologically and emotionally harmed and abused by toxic, predatory narcissistic personalities through my books: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist and Freeing Yourself from the Narcissist in Your Life, international telephone consultations and global podcasts. I put the emphasis on helping individuals to access the calming, restorative parts of the parasympathetic body/mind systems that lead to healing, recovery, personal transformation and the evolution of your true, authentic self and your unique creative gifts.

Quoting from my book: Recovering and Healing After the Narcissist:

"For millennia artists have used a sense of place to shape and deepen their creativity." 

"When we enter the natural world, everywhere we turn we experience billions of shapes, colors, hues and rhythms. ..Nature stretches the imagination and enriches us in a very personal way. 

"All creativity begins with nature, and even the greatest artists cannot replicate her beauty, eternal variety, paradoxes and mysteries---"  " Watching several films of the Great Barrier Reef, I entered a world that was so magnificent that it was difficult to believe it was real. From space, the Great Barrier Reef is called the Blue Opal..." 

The story of the Paleolithic cave artists: 

Three spelunkers exploring cliffs of Pont d'Arc discovered  exquisite Paleolithic art that had been unseen for 30,00 years. 

"Artists had gathered and worked in the caves for thousands of years to paint their surroundings, especially the animals...Trios of horses, sublimely drawn and painted, arrest our gaze. Deer and bison are rendered with great detail by artists who loves with these animals daily. Within the Chauvet Cave are glorious paintings of hundreds of animal species that had never been discovered: bears, lions, panthers, hyenas and rhinoceroses...the Chauvet Caves reminds us of our shared creatiavity and humanity with our Paleolithic brothers."
