WHAT HEROES DO...

ABIDING ABANDONMENT

Season 1, Ep. 1

A warm welcome to a new mental health awareness podcast. Many of us have unfortunately suffered some type of #trauma in our lives. Be it #physical or #mental, scars do exist and wounds can run deep. But one of the most important things to remember is - none of us are alone.


Your host Glen Dower, has been through Abandonment Trauma as a child which manifested in adulthood through #procrastination, impostor syndrome, low self-esteem and self-worth, high #anxiety and the use of #alcohol as a numbing agent. But now he owns his problem - and is looking to help others who have suffered similar challenges in their lives.


Along with a variety of guests, we offer a safe place to learn, to be inspired, to be motivated, and to take the steps to a better you. This week professional global fitness coach, and ex-pro-rugby player, Mike Poole guides us through the incredibly inspiring story of how he willed himself back to health following a near fatal accident, and went on to become an award-winning health and fitness professional.


We want you to fly high...not alone.

  • 24. WHAT HEROES DO THE ACOLYTE EPISODE 1 & 2 REVIEW

    46:27
    WHAT HEROES DO is back and we are talking STAR WARS! We all love and adore the GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY...yet the DISNEY+ offering has been a mixed bag. We have had amazing highs...MANDO & GROGU, ANDOR, and disappointing lows...does anyone remember THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT?? Anyone? Anyone?So where will the new show, THE ACOLYTE rank so far after its first 2 episodes? A former Padawan reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes but discovers the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated. As always we are positive and hopeful THE FORCE IS WITH US!#starwars #theacolyte #disney #disney+ #jedi #acolytereviews #disneystarwars #andor #babyyoda #podcast #starwarspodcast

  • 30. ABIDING: Remembering Our Friend

    01:47:11
    We have hit the milestone of 30 episodes of Abiding. A bittersweet milestone as this podcast would not exist in a perfect world, with one of the factors leading to its inception being the loss of Steven Carne. We approach the sad anniversary of his final choice, so a group of his friends have gathered to celebrate happy memories as we talk about our shared laughs and experiences, but this being Abiding; we look at what can and should be done for young men, and adults in general who show the same types of red flags and calls-for-help as Steven did. This podcast exists just to help one person, because Steven could not be helped. So please, look, stop and listen for those who may need any kind of help, as we remember our friend.
  • 29. ABIDING: The Essentials of Islam

    39:11
    Eid Mubarak! It is a time to share, gain or improve all of our understanding of Islam. I am not religious but those who are have my utmost respect, as long as they do not impose their beliefs on others. In my opinion Religion shoud be about leading a better life and helping others to do the same. I have discovered this talk from the well-respected scholar, NOUMAN ALI KHAN who offers an informed, fascinating, balanced, view on the teachings of Islam for all to have a better understanding. Enjoy.For more information or if you wish to follow and support the work of Mr Khan:www.youtube.com/@bayyinahwww.bayyinah.tvwww.bayyinah.comwww.facebook.com/BayyinahTVwww.instagram.com/noumanalikhan.bayyinah/www.tiktok.com/@noumanalikhan.bayyinah
