Interview with Roger Brooks on American Real TV Part 1

 Here is a link to my interview with Roger Brooks of American Real TV which was published today, the feast day of St. Francis, on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usOtnsmijKQ

Below is a description from Roger’s LinkedIn page: https://www.linkedin.com/.../rogerlbrooks_americanrealtv.../
Michael Hall, PhD is a clinical psychologist and spiritual teacher. He's also the author of the book, Awake and Alive: Being What You Already Are (2019).
I found my conversation with Dr. Hall extremely timely, as he has a calm about him that's infectious. I hope you receive the same benefit from his words as I did.
Here's a quote from Dr. Hall's book.
"If we objectively and dispassionately observe the content of our mind or the sensations in our body for a few minutes several times each day, we will be embarking on a remarkable journey toward seeing reality as it is."
“Because the content of the interview is so powerful, we broke it up into two parts. Part 1 today, and Part 2 next Sunday.” Roger Brooks
