Dancing with Edith

Welcome back to Where Is My Mind? A podcast about how we can better look after our heads and our hearts in the head-melty chaos of the modern world.

In this week’s episode, Niall is joined by world-renowned psychologist and author of The Choice, Dr. Edith Eger, a holocaust survivor who’s incredible story has inspired hope in millions of people. Edith was just sixteen when she was taken to the heinous death camp of Auschwitz, and experienced one of the worst evils the human race has ever known. Her parents were sent to the gas chambers, and her first love Eric perished in the camp, but Edith’s bravery and spirit kept her and her sister alive. She always remembered what her mother had told her on their journey to the camp, “Just remember no one can take away from you what you put into your own mind.”

Niall speaks to Edith about her story, the years it took her to process the trauma and how she’s used her wisdom to help others. They also makes plans for Edith, a trained ballet dancer, to help Niall with his two left feet and teach him her famous high kick.

You’ll also hear from our resident psychologist Louize Carroll, who’s been hugely influenced by Edith in her own work.
