Anna David's "You've Got Issues" Podcast: PJ's On A Plane...

My good friend Anna David has a new podcast called You've Got Issues, where she talks to artists and others about their pet peeve issues... and then she hands it off to a panel of experts to look at the underlying causes and conditions that may inform these pet peeves...

I recorded several of these with Anna as one of her experts breaking down the issues focused upon in the interview... other experts include Jeff Kober, Noah Levine and a 10 year old named Archer... I had a great time recording these, and the first one regarding people wearing their pajamas on a plane is up and available...

BOOK TESTIMONIAL: Better Days - A Mental Health Recovery Workbook

I believe that what Craig Lewis offers with Better Days: A Mental Health Recovery Workbook is an indispensable tool for those seeking real recovery.  Craig comes from the place of first-hand knowledge of how it feels to go through the suffering, and also how it feels to break through to the other side and feel the joy of life in the midst of all its challenges.  As someone who has worked in the field for many years, I have a deep appreciation of the way that Craig cuts through to the immediate needs of the person trying to change.   Craig provides a simple but elegant template for healing.  I am proud to call Craig colleague, friend and fellow traveler on the recovery path.

BOOK TESTIMONLIAL: Dancing Mindfulness - A Creative Path To Healing & Transformation

It has been my privilege to bear witness to Dr. Marich's (Jamie's) process of discovery and the sharing of her gifts with the world.  Her research and her work on trauma has been indispensable to me and to many of my colleagues.  The greatest gift thus far was her insight and then action to blend two passions, dance and mindfulness practice, into a cohesive system called Dancing Mindfulness. Two ancient, simple designs to bring us into our bodies, into our healthy selves.  It is not surprising to me that Dancing Mindfulness already has the hallmarks of a movement, one where the ancient wisdom and power of dance and mindfulness meditation bring healing, joy, and a greater embodiment of mind, body and spirit.
