Name: Amy Ward
Job title: Co-executive producer, "Super Soul Sunday"
As a co-executive producer, what's your job like? Every day is different, but co-ep Lisa Weiss and I get to read some of the most influential books ever written, like Be Here Now; research and speak with thought leaders like Gary Zukav; supervise the production of interviews with spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle; and then oversee the editing of those conversations into "Super Soul Sunday" episodes with the help of our passionate and dedicated production team.
Education: I went to Northwestern University because I could take amazing classes in history and philosophy at the same time I was studying television and film production. It truly was the best of both worlds.

By Deepak Chopra
After being betrayed, most of us want two things, usually at the same time. We want to wound the person who hurt us—as deeply and as excruciatingly—as we've been wounded, and we want to rise above the situation and offer that person forgiveness. But neither of these tactics work. Wounding words tend to boomerang and make you feel as terrible as the person you wanted to hurt. Forgiveness, especially if halfhearted, tends to come off as condescension.
There are actions, though, that you can take to can heal yourself. Every hurt has its own story, and so does every healing. But we can say this: You can heal yourself when you've filled the hole left behind by a betrayal, and you can heal the other person when you sincerely drop the need for revenge.
Remember, the only betrayals that inflict damage are the ones where an intimate bond has been torn. Love makes you merge with another person, able to feel their emotions as keenly as you feel your own. If you have experienced such bonding, you know that it is a kind of higher reality—and when that bond is ripped apart, it's as if you've lost half of yourself
So how can you get out of torment and find yourself again?
