    • Reflections From Costa Rica
      • A reminder of what it means to be in Nature
    • The Public Is Hitting Its Limits For Oppression
      • France's Yellow Jacket protests are a sign of what's to come
    • Market Crash Alert

    • It's All About Power
      • The 1% will cling to their advantage as long as they can

    As Bob Dylan sang: The times, they are a changin'. From ecosystem collapse to social unrest in Europe, to faltering financial markets — change appears to be breaking out everywhere right now. A recent trip to the rainforests of Costa Rica has given Chris a little rest, rejuvenation and arm's-length perspective on things, which he shares in detail in this wide-ranging podcast

    Michael Basta has worked in mental health for 30 years and is a certified Master Gottman Therapist. (Those who read Malcolm Gladwell's book Blink may remember the chapter on John Gottman, whose decades of research studying couples enables him to determine with 94% accuracy after just a few minutes of observation whether a couple will stick together or not.)

    In this week's podcast, Mike pinpoints the most common threats that can derail a relationship when it confronts conflict, and he shares the top success strategies that the Gottman Institute's research has identified for rescuing, repairing and strengthening relationships through adversity.

    These insights apply to nearly any relationship — your spouse/life partner, family member, friend, co-worker or neighbor. Anyone looking to live in better harmony with the people in their life should find the insights in this discussion of real value.
