Dr Ray Owen - Part 1

Season 3 Episode 30

P-Soupers – this week – it’s part one of my chat with clinical psychologist and fabulous human, Dr Ray Owen. 


We cover loads in our conversation

  • you’ll hear a bit about Ray’s career – a story which he holds lightly,
  • His books - Facing the Storm and Living with the Enemy,
  • His work in long term health conditions and palliative care – and how he discovered ACT and contextual behavioural science,
  • And he choses his song – which is a not only a belter – it also has an important message for us all.

That quote from the Poem The Traveller - by Antonio Machado

"Traveller, there is no path.
The path is made by walking.

Traveller, the path is your tracks
And nothing more."

                          Antonio Machado

Ray also mentioned the book by Kathryn Mannix, it's called "With the end in mind - how to live and die well." The quote from that book is:

“There are only two days with fewer than twenty-four hours in each lifetime, sitting like bookmarks astride our lives; one is celebrated every year, yet it is the other that makes us see living as precious.”
