- First Hour: A conversation with author and psychotherapist Dave Richo. David Richo, Ph.D., M.F.T., is a psychotherapist, teacher, workshop leader, and writer, who works in Santa Barbara and San Francisco California. He combines Jungian, poetic, and mythic perspectives in his work with the intention of integrating the psychological and the spiritual. His books and workshops include attention to Buddhist practices.
He is the best-selling author of more than a dozen volumes, including How to Be an Adult, How to Be an Adult in Relationships, How to Be an Adult in Faith and Spirituality, and The Five Things You Cannot Change and the Happiness We Find By Embracing Them. His most recent book is, How to Be an Adult in Love - Letting Love in Safely and Showing it Recklessly, published this year by Shambhala Publications.
In this conversation, we focus on one of Dave's 2007 books, Mary Within Us - A Jungian contemplation of Her Titles and Powers, and how the Jungian archetype of the feminine aspect of God as personified by Mary is shown to be built into the design of every human psyche.
- Second Hour: Mystical Positivist co-hosts Stuart Goodnick and Robert Schmidt elaborate on the themes raised in the first part of the show ranging from the meaning of Mary to the nature of our multi-dimensional existence and the scales of our individuality and deeper unity.
