Happy 1st of February. Upon return from the month I spent on a Brazilian jungle island, I swiftly donated my television and canceled all cable and streaming services. The peace of soul has carried on with me and while I’d always been someone who reads more than watches TV, it’s been mentally and emotionally freeing as well as quite interesting to witness (the usually funny!) reactions from family, friends and colleagues. The upside is the discovery of many more authors and podcasters to share with you here. Have you heard of Esther Perel? While I did read her book, Mating in Captivity, a few years ago, I hadn’t ever listened to interviews or investigated further the themes she provocatively and beautifully brings to the table of humanity. She’s worth the read, the listen, and TED talk.
