When I read Tom Cheetham's @tcheetham52 book, Imaginal Love, an unexpected insight occurred, and I will forever be grateful. Tom's work will open your heart and mind to the beauty of nature, life, and the religions born that help us relate to the mystery of living.
Anyone seeking a better understanding of rituals and rites of passage need not look much further than her book, Paths of Transformation. Kate Burns’ book investigates the process of initiation, and her work provides us a guide rail for us to imagine the struggles that we each experience in a different way, thus transforming how we relate to these inevitable aspects fo living.
Check out Henry Richardson @define.henry his professional work, as embodied in his business DEFINE, provides people the space to connect with their bodies and contact their edge. We spoke about positivity in business - essentially, when relationship matters, there is not much about a company that does not improve.
This conversation explores the study of religion. I was introduced to Dr. Pargament's work when the University of St. Thomas, in Houston, asked me to teach a graduate class on spirituality and psychotherapy. Dr. Parament looks at how religion and spirituality influence health, wellness, and relationships. I highly recommend his book Spiritually Integrated Psychotherapy to any therapist.
Matt Russel's @mhrussell1 work in Houston provides bridges both within and between communities who are in deep need of connecting. Matt is likable upon contact, and those who are lucky enough to encounter him, know the value that he brings into the world.
