The Change Paradox

Change is a given of life, perhaps even the point of it. And now more than ever, it’s everywhere we look. But how well do we understand it? Psychologist Dr. Dodge Rea and guests explore the mysterious, paradoxical nature of change navigated well.

If you enjoy the show and want even more content, consider becoming a member. Podcasts are fun but hard work! Membership to The Change Paradox is the perfect way to support our team, including the many hours that go into recording and producing every show. As our way of saying thanks, we provide a private bonus podcast to our members and have more benefits in the works. We have two tiers of membership — see which one fits for you and join today!

TCP_Friend of the Show

What do you get as a
Friend of the Show?

The Friend of the Show tier provides members with a bonus episode paired with each interview. We call these episodes AFTERTHOUGHTS. One week after each interview is released, Dodge sits down with producer and lifelong friend Pete Wright to discuss their thoughts on the conversation. These episodes allow them both to digest the ideas presented, go deeper into the material (including how that material may be used in Dodge’s psychology practice), and to talk about how the guests' themes have led to change in each of their own lives. Finally, this is where the change wisdom gained across shows is integrated.

TCP_Change of Pace

What do you get with
A Change of Pace?

In every episode on the main show, the guest walks through an experiential exercise or meditation. The bonus episode for this tier is a separate feed featuring these experiential exercises and meditations exclusively. Listeners often like to replay these exercises but it can be a bit cumbersome to find it in each episode. By having access to this exclusive podcast, Change of Pace members can re-listen to just these exercises anytime they need a change!

About The Change Paradox

If there is a single element of human experience that is both most feared and most longed for, it is change. And on both sides, our relationship with it tends to be defined more by struggle than any other experience. Does it have to be this way?

I’m Dr. Dodge Rea. I’m an Integrative Clinical Psychologist, practitioner of Medical Qigong, and the co-founder of a prominent holistic health center in Nashville, which is to say, I’ve helped people work with change on physical, psychological, and spiritual levels for more than 25 years. And here’s the thing. After you’ve watched closely this long, you start to realize something: Deep change — every change that really matters — has surprising elements we’re all inclined to overlook.

Welcome to the Change Paradox. This is a podcast devoted to helping all of us unpack the mystery of how change really works.

Whereas innumerable writers and speakers have taught us the values of superior goals and effort, that’s not our focus here. We’re more interested in why willpower alone so often falls short. What are we missing? Why is it that lasting change so often succeeds when it involves the realm of paradox — the “union of opposites”, as Carl Jung put it? And how can we use this wisdom to bring healthy change to our lives?

In illuminating, often personal conversations, we’re going to talk with Change Agents from a broad range of fields as well as laypeople who’ve experienced huge transformation in their own lives. Guests will also bring with them experiential exercises for you to engage with directly, and we’ll have a playful “Afterthoughts” series for subscribers where my producer and lifelong friend, Pete Wright, and I unpack and integrate what we’re learning as we go.

We’re convinced that if we can uncover some deeper principles to the transformation process, we can all get better at it as a planet. Join us!

Victoria Castle and the Trance of Scarcity

March 26, 2021

In “The Trance of Scarcity,” Victoria Castle drills deeply into the heart of our inner imposter and churns there. It skewers our limiting beliefs and negative self identity in a way that’s both real and gentle at the same time. This week, she sits down with Dodge to talk about it.
