The NLP toolbox was a great contribution to my therapeutic work. As you know, a trance state is not necessary to achieve results. I just called it 'visualization.' Now most 'treatment' is chemical because one can prescribe in ten minutes. Thanks private insurance!!

THOM'S USUAL ELOQUENCE. I had always admired Thom's broad grasp of history, but his overview of the Adams/Jefferson/Calvin philosophies and how they reflect Republican/Progressive differences today was mind-blowing. Thom is a master teacher of our times, a truly illuminating person. I was equally fascinated with his previous discussion about the history of hypnotherapy. As a psych major and lifelong student of the works of Carl Jung, I had not heard this story about the cultural impact of the novel Trilby before. It explains a great deal. I have an expanding list of people with whom I would like to have dinner in this lifetime, and Thom stays up in the top five. That will be a conversation well worth waiting for. Antoniafelix.com

Our planet's lungs are dying...

Trees are like our planet’s lungs. Every second of every day, they’re absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, and converting it into energy.

In fact, according to a study by researchers at NASA, each year, tropical rainforests absorb a staggering 1.4 billion metric tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
