    In this episode we try something a bit different! I’m calling it Practice Makes Better. Today my friend Gary Goodson helps me with an experiment in practicing what we’re preaching.

    April 27th, 2020  |  37 mins 48 secs

    In this two part interview I talk to futurist Steve McDonald about Spiral Dynamics, which is a model for understanding human development and consciousness.
