Listen by Heart: Stories from Women of the South China Sea

Move8 Fitness Method, Pillar 2: Listen by Heart focuses on Mental Health

Website | Article


Trailer description: Listen in to conversations with women of the South China Seas in search of one common thread — life purpose… Podcast host Jasmine Low speaks with women of this region, shares their stories and narrates articles from yesteryear and delves into her 10-year research into sound frequencies and how that got her to “Listen by Heart” in finding her own purpose. Were all of the women before her in search of the same goal? It’s telling in the daily greeting by Nanyang migrants in their own dialects, “Have you eaten?”. Is this why so many people share food pics because it’s a trophy for survival?

Q3 2023

Black Dog Institute’s Being Well Podcast.

We’ve picked this podcast which shares stories from people with a lived experience of mental health.

“These are people who have flourished and met life’s challenges while managing their social and emotional wellbeing.”

“What is bibliotherapy? Books as therapy, it makes sense!

Black Dog interviews Bibliotherapist Germaine Leece, who’s also a psychotherapist and published author. In this E-Mental Health in Practice, Being Well podcast, we hear Germaine’s journey to bibliotherapy and to publishing her first book. Join us for this insightful and truly inspiring story.

Q2 2023

A post-pandemic factor is that public health awareness has increased and as a result, we have picked this series of sound bites from the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health. The UNU-IIGH produces podcasts with the Gender and Health Hub — a global platform that consolidates the best policy-relevant evidence on gender integration in health policies and programmes.

This podcast delves into gender equality in health and explores feminist leadership as a way to advance global commitments towards gender equality and health equity.

It aims to encourage listeners to take risks, explore options abroad, understand international markets & find career fulfilment. We selected this August 2022 episode featuring Dr Joseph Lai, the Founder & Chief Investment Officer of Ox Capital, an Australian-based boutique investment management company specialising in emerging market stocks & equities.

After becoming a medical doctor, he realised that a career in investing was much more exciting and made the career change to finance.

Q4 2022

Dai Le’s harrowing journey to power

Dai Le is a newly elected independent member for the Federal seat of Fowler in Western Sydney. Wearing a traditional Vietnamese dress emblazoned with the Australian Flag, Dai’s speech garnered a raucous response from 250 of her supporters crowding the public gallery that day. They had arrived from Sydney on five buses to see her speak. Dai’s family arrived in Australia from Vietnam when she was a small child, fleeing Saigon by boat with her mother and two sisters. Two harrowing ocean voyages, years in refugee camps, and the mystery of what happened to her father shaped Dai’s personality at a young age.
