Heart. Change. Consciousness. with Dr. Trish DeRocher

Inspired Activism as a Spiritual Path

Motivation and inspiration are powerful tools that change and influence perspectives, voices, and projects that shape the world. With all the negativity in the world, it can be hard to find those rare and beautiful stories that tell of inspired spiritual activism and individual healing journeys. Walk the path with me, Dr. Trish DeRocher on the show Heart. Change. Consciousness., where we inspire listeners to take action towards a more JUST world. We’ll hear from authors, change-makers, influencers, activists, poets, filmmakers, and cultural workers who practice inspired spiritual activism and transform vulnerabilities, into sources of strength.

Heart. Change. Consciousness. allows us to understand the world from different perspectives and highlights what is possible when we are fearless and open ourselves to our soul purpose and engage each other across boundaries. So, let’s self-heal and open the path to self-sovereignty.

 

About Trish -

Trish is a 200-hour Bhakti certified yoga instructor, Inner Alignment Coach, certified Biofield Tuner, Reiki II practitioner, social justice advocate, author, former professor, and owner of Transformative Consciousness Coaching and Consulting. Trish works across healing modalities to offer a comprehensive mind, body, spirit approach and understands individual transformation as the gateway to collective social healing. A forever student, Trish recently completed a community herbalism apprenticeship and is currently completing their 200-hour Ayurveda Immersion Training through The Mahatma School of Ayurveda in Vermont.

In this lifetime, Trish finds expression as a white, non-binary, queer, anti-racist writer, educator, and spiritual activist. Trish currently resides with their family in rural VT where they are becoming quieter and relearning how to listen to nature’s wisdom and rhythms.

Trish grew up in a lower middle class, Irish Catholic family in a conservative, working-class town in Upstate New York. Trish first went to college for Music Therapy, but sensing that the timing wasn’t quite right, rerouted to a community college. Trish went on to receive a B.A. in English Literature with a minor in Gender Studies from Saint Michael's College, an M.A. in English Literature from the University of Vermont, and later a Ph.D. in Feminist Studies from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Trish served as an Assistant Professor of English Literature at SUNY Adirondack and an Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Champlain College before leaving academia in 2019. Trish’s book, Transnational Testimonios: The Politics of Collective Knowledge Production, was published in 2018 through the Decolonizing Feminisms Series at the University of Washington Press.

Trish is a firm believer that more equitable futures are possible only when we are each committed to realizing, and to helping each other become our own best selves; when we transform sources of vulnerability into sources of strength; and when we plant the seeds of a more just world through our daily actions and relationships.

Testimonials

  • "Dr. Pat's Holistic Makeover is inspiring yet practical. She takes listeners' dreams and turns them into reality through her astute matching of audience members with professional coaches. I had the pleasure of being one of Dr. Pat's coaches for the 2009 Holistic Makeover. I recommend her program to anyone prepared to commit to focused work on themselves so they can live their dreams."
    Ellen DiNucci-Sponsor

  • "For those of you who don't know about Mary Jane, first of all she's my mom. I think she's pretty awesome as a mom but I also think she's pretty awesome at what she does. Little bit about her background is in nursing but she's had a thriving, successful practice in Issaquah, Washington since 1992. She's a medical intuitive and the way I describe what she does is a form of muscle testing, the body to find out where your nutritional deficiencies are, then she recommends nutrition protocol that gets in the nutrition repair, feeds your body, brings it back to where it can function at 100% and I used to work in her office, saw a lot of interesting cases that came in. Some were fun, had a few interesting people but I've seen a lot of miracles created in her office and she's a pretty special lady, not just that cause she is my mom and she's a miracle worker."
    Nancy Mack-CoHost
