I just discovered your web site. I am so excited to have found it. My beliefs and your own are very similar. I work with at risk people and relationships utilizing equine assisted growth and development programs. To learn more about this modality visit www.eagala.org.
Funny, I too avoided going to college for a degree in Psychology and am thankful for that decision. Always good to trust your vibes...even if you can't make sense of it at the time! Thank you for so generously sharing your insights and philosophies. I intend to share your site with the therapist that I work in conjunction with.

Much appreciation, Pam

certain actions that someone cares about me, but
emotionally I might not feel like they do, and I usually
just end up with a struggle when I get really emotional.
Telling errors in the 1995 Goleman book?
Here is a letter I received from a reader. Note that I use the term "telling" a bit sarcastically because it is one of Dan Goleman's favorite words.

Under Chapter 1 - What Are Emotions For?
This is drama at best, and unadulterated nonsense at
worst. It sounds good, looks good on paper, but is as
fictional as Sasquatch or Loch Ness.
