Episode 58:Lighting the Path with Gabe Golden

Gabe joins us as a special repeat offender on the show! Gabe Golden is a documentary filmmaker, writer, and producer. He has authored six screenplays and has found creating documentary films to be an essential form of in-depth journalism necessary to communicate all aspects of a subject. Inspired by his 30-year challenge with rheumatoid arthritis, Gabe completed “Lighting the Path,” a documentary on alternative medicine who can watch for free! He has also co-written and produced the award-winning “Rangeland” series as well as the “Nevada Mining” series for PBS.

In this wide-ranging look at different healing modalities for chronic pain, Gabe and Freddie discuss how pain is your body trying to communicate to you, the importance of connecting your mind and heart, one common trait Gabe has found in healing stories around the world, and how to use these tools even when you’re healthy.
