Susan B. Hagen: providing tools for personal growth and happiness

Deirdre Murray 

Susan Hagen describes herself as an inspirational humorist and keynote speaker.

Even though the temperature is dipping towards the single digits, Susan Hagen braves the cold to greet us from the top step of her Cambridge apartment. During our time with her, it was very rare to see her not smiling or cracking jokes. The room is extremely cosy: softly lit, filled with snug couches and a warm fireplace in the corner. The mood fits the rooms purpose, which is for group therapy sessions. A lookalike puppet sits on a chair in the corner. “That’s young Susan,” Hagen jokes. “I use her for my shows.”

As the crew sets up their tripods and cameras, Hagen lends a hand in moving around furniture and adjusting the lighting. She offered us beverages and snacks that she kindly picked up for us. These simple gestures speak volumes about the person we will discover Hagen to be: a welcoming and compassionate woman, a healer.

Born and raised in a northern town in Minnesota, Hagen grew up among the sunflower fields on her farm. She originally wanted to be a stand up comedian and she joked that her first audience were actually the sunflowers. Hagen’s path to where she is now has been a long and exciting journey. Feeling that farm town life was too small, Hagen left for college and completed her degree in Madrid.. Since then, she has called multiple places home: Seattle, Boston and now, Cambridge.

Her list of credentials are about as varied as can be, with degrees in religious studies, psychotherapy, education and ample experience in the Boston public school system. While Hagen has pursued a variety of areas, she has always known that she loved to tell stories and loved delivering messages through those tales.

A Fresh Start

Casey Campbell

New Years Eve symbolizes a fresh start, a clean slate for new goals and adventures. This year, I decided to celebrate in Boston with my boyfriend, Graham, seeing as neither of us had attended First Night before. Since, this year’s First Night almost did not happen, and Mayor Menino swooped in to save the event, this year seemed to be a special one. We were excited.

Being Home

Briana Azar
Going home for me is not just about the weather. It isn’t even about the place or the people. It is about returning to what I have always known and feel most comfortable in. It is the feeling that I am being and not just doing. Sure, the sunshine is always welcomed and my family and friends are wonderful but their is something about sitting around the kitchen table on a Sunday and being completely and totally myself that I love. Having people around me that love that person too makes it all the better. When I am home, I feel happy, rested, restored and whole.
