Default Archived Interview Recording and mp3 with Karen Lines

First, a big THANK YOU to Karen for agreeing to be interviewed. She was a great guest and I again, was able to learn a tremendous amount about her thought process both as a massage therapist and as the Somasimple.com INTERFACER.

Karen is such a tremendous assest to Somasimple and I think folks who come to the site should, if possible, listen to this interview to really get acclimated to the forum (and Karen as well).

Here is the link that will take you to the webpage to listen to the show.

I am also posting the mp3 recording if you want to download it.

Please remember that Barrett Dorko will be speaking at a workshop in Washington, DC on June 11, 2011 called UNDERSTANDING PAIN TO MAXIMIZE PERFORMANCE. Jason will be in attendance and will add his own expertise to the workshop. Please click on the link above for more information or to register.


Cheers,

Will

I love how my voice sounds. I never get to hear it that way. Very cool but I'd venture a few too many um's.

Thank you Will it was a pleasure to talk with you. I am a small part of this wonderful diverse group and I am lucky to have learned to share from the best. I hope I spoke well of SomaSimple's wealth and generosity, where manual therapist can interact and ask questions.

I have to say everyday is a chance to learn and do better. I hope I didn't miss speak or get anything glaringly wrong. Thank you to everyone who finds this interview useful. Of course my deepest thanks to all my teachers here at Soma. I did notice I wandered a bit answering who are my influences and a couple of other spots but I think Will did a great job of shepherding me back on topic. It isn't easy talking fluently about something like Soma, which has so many contributors. It is indeed a collaboration.

Karen

It's great to hear your voice Karen, and learn more about you, what drives all your organizational and interactive and interfacing efforts. If somasimple were a brain, you'd be the thalamus, the English-speaking thalamus at least.
So much disembodiment around this place, usually. Will is fixing that, facilitating communication, Sasha too.

I LOVE that you called her THALAMUS! It's perfect!

We will keep building the bridges as long as we have the people who want to cross over.

Excellent job you two! I really enjoyed hearing you again, Karen. The "wandering" was comfortably conversational, so it fit well in the tone of the talk - as far as I am concerned.
Great job.

One day I might be able to say why it’s taken me so long to listen to and then comment on this interview. Being human, I’d like to blame something. These days my nightmare of a job seems adequate for most things, so I’ll use that.

What struck me most about Karen’s story was its brevity. In many ways, she has accomplished in a couple of years what it has taken me a lot, lot longer to do and understand. I’m in awe of that.

When I introduced her to the group in Vancouver I said she wasn’t just a wonderful resource for them, she was a treasure.

I’d be glad to repeat that anytime.

Wow! I concur though, Barrett. She is a treasure.

Thanks Barrett, Will and Caro,

Today I was berating myself for my perceived lack of timing as a story teller. I also think most people around me have far more compelling stories. Possibly it is a function of social isolation. Interestingly I am fairly comfortable speaking publicly even when winging it.

At the recent BC Pain Summit there was a question session after Neil Pearson's keynote address. I asked if a communication post summit could be sent to the College of Massage Therapy indicating a need for the neuroscience of pain to be a core competency for all manual therapy. Dr. Micheal Negraeff fielded with a very diplomatic response that the proceedings would be available to all stake holders in pain.

On the second day I got to co-present our break-out session results to the conference. It was really cool talking about access to self management programs and services for persistent pain. A couple of my breakout session ideas made the cut too.

I was surprised by how much I knew and how much I have yet to learn. I'd like to continue to practice speaking so I can become more fluid, but that also comes with confidence in a thorough understanding of the topic.

Thanks again to Will and everyone who found the interview interesting.

Karen

Karen,

You are welcome. I am sure that you know way more than you think you do.

Keep it up! We are just getting started.

Karen, I didn't notice the "ums" and found the interview fascinating and inspiring. Fantastic! I want to listen to it again and again, there is so much to think about. In particular, I like the idea of sharing information rather than trying to convert. This is something I need to work on and perhaps your voice in my head will help. I hope sharing this interview with other MTs will help to shift some thinking. I don't even care if it shifts in this particular direction, I'd just like to see more serious intellectual, science-based thinking. Our profession is stuck in a rather primitive, infantile mental state and we need to start moving out of that, really thinking about what we are doing, making use of what is known about how the body works. You are a model of a massage therapist who is taking our work seriously, thinking about it carefully, searching out the best minds and the best information available, and looking for ways to put that into practice. Thanks for making that journey, doing the hard work, and sharing it with us. And thanks to Will for doing such a bang-up job and making it all possible.
