“A healthy relationship is a feast of affection/giving for both people; not one receiving crumbs and trying to convince themselves it’s enough. — ShannonThomas

I had a lovely chat with my mentor, George Pransky, on this week’s rerun of Insightful Conversations. Before meeting Sydney Banks back in 1976, George was a successful psychotherapist working in the Bay area. George and his business partner and colleague John Enright had heard about this enlightened man up in Canada who profoundly affected the people who came and listened to him speak. People from all walks of life were experiencing dramatic shifts for the…

I loved my conversation with Dr. Bill Pettit on this week’s Insightful Conversations. As a former Psychiatrist and one of Sydney Bank’s early students, Bill is one of the most influential and sought-after teachers and practitioners of the 3 Principles.

Bill was 41 years old when he first met Sydney Banks. Before coming across the 3 Principles, Bill had been a board-certified psychiatrist for almost ten years. He recalls that in all that time and during the hundreds of lectures…

I am enjoying going back and listening to some of my old Insightful Conversations shows. This week’s rerun was with the fabulous Dicken Bettinger. Dicken is a pioneer in the teachings of the 3 Principles and the co-author of the book “Coming Home” with Natasha Swerdloff. He also happens to be one of my first 3 P teachers, and as such, he holds a very special place in my heart.

I love listening to Dickens share the story of what life was like for him…

“The purpose of a relationship is not to have another who might complete you, but to have another with whom you might share your completeness” Neale Donald Walsch

Change is in the air. I have decided to listen to my wisdom and take an indefinite hiatus from recording my Insightful Conversations shows. I’d been feeling a bit burnt out and knew intuitively that it was time to slow down and make room for spontaneity and for something new to arise. Exciting prospects are in the works. …

“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.”―Kahlil Gibran

I had the pleasure of having the lovely Michael Fall as my guest on this week’s Insightful Conversations. Michael…
