Where The Light Shines Brightly 
In this section, I share personal updates, thoughts, and links to things that inspire and equip me to live a more harmonious and integrated life. 
I've become a big fan of Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast. I've been a fan of Dax since he was on Parenthood (an exquisite show). I'm also a fan of John Gottman, creator of the Gottman method, for navigating relationships. Ilea and I read his "Why Marriages Succeed or Fail: And How You Can Make Yours Last" book and it really moved us. 

Dax interviewed Gottman on his show and it was one of the best pieces by Gottman I've heard. For anyone that cares about the vitality of their relationships, I highly recommend listening to this episode. Furthermore, it's just an excellent show to subscribe to.

And if you're interested, Gottman just wrote a new book called, "Eight Dates: Essential Conversations for a Lifetime of Love".

In other news, This school replaced detention with meditation. The results are stunning. Imagine if every school cared that much about the vitality and consciousness of our children. 

Joshua Spodek is an NYU Professor, TEDx Speaker, best selling author, astrophysicist, and host of the Leadership and the Environment podcast. Josh was on the show two years ago and we’ve become great friends since. With his new book coming out, I wanted to get him back on the show for another interview. 
In this episode, we talk about what it’s like to truly live by your values, in a way that brings you joy, rather than a feeling of obligation or sacrifice. Josh is a genius when it comes to effective leadership and living an authentic life that brings you, and others, joy. 
We talk about the fact that most activists and leaders are stuck in the habit of making demands and trying to guilt people into perspective and behavioral change. However, facts and figures don’t usually get people to change. Josh offers some profound advice on how to more effectively incite behavioral change that comes from true desire, rather than a feeling of obligation. 
Living in harmony with our planet is not an obligation, it’s an opportunity to live a happier, more purposeful and fulfilling life. Decluttering and minimizing and living deliberately isn't about lowering your quality of life, it’s about raising it. 

Joshua says, "The environmental revolution begins with joy". Yes! And that's the only way it will ever work. 

The show notes for this episode include Joshua's Four Steps to Living By Your Values and continued commentary on the episode. Check it out HERE.
