Propinquity- the Surprising Nearness of You: Chris Mackey, EP 248

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

Australian psychologist Chris Mackey has become a propinquity magnet. He “accidentally” meets people he knows in strange places and his friends have caught his buzz. Like the aboriginals in the Outback of Australia, he expects to meet people without prior arranging and he does.

Our guest, Chris Mackey is a clinical and counselling psychologist and Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society with over 40 years’ psychotherapy experience gained in public and private mental health settings. He is the Principal Psychologist at Chris Mackey and Associates in Geelong.

Chris has presented at numerous national and international scientific conferences over the past 25 years on such topics as psychological therapy for anxiety, depression, and trauma reactions and drawing on synchronicity in psychotherapy. Chris is author of The Positive Psychology of Synchronicity: Enhance Your Mental Health with the Power of coincidence, released internationally by Watkins Publishing in 2019. https://www.synchronicityunwrapped.co… and https://www.chrismackey.com.au/

Our host Dr. Bernard Beitman is the first psychiatrist since Carl Jung to attempt to systematize the study of coincidences. He is Founding Director of The Coincidence Project. His book, and his Psychology Today blog, are both titled Connecting with Coincidence. He has developed the first valid and reliable scale to measure coincidence sensitivity, and has written and edited coincidence articles for Psychiatric Annals. He is a visiting professor at the University of Virginia and former chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He attended Yale Medical School and completed a psychiatric residency at Stanford. Dr. Beitman has received two national awards for his psychotherapy training program and is internationally known for his research into the relationship between chest pain and panic disorder.

Surprise! Here comes the Trickster!: David Strabala. EP 246

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

It isn’t surprising that my guest today, David Strabala (STRAY ba la), identifies with the archetype of the trickster in stories, or that this energy called him to make the award-winning feature documentary, “What Is Synchronicity?” He carried a trickster role from birth, as the surprising 13th child of parents who were 50 and 46. As tricksters often do, he has crossed many boundaries in his life, starting with the two generations he straddled — those of his siblings and of his nieces and nephews, five of whom are older than he is. On the way to making his synchronicity film, he threaded career boundaries as a journalist, clinical social worker and storyteller. He brings both personal and professional stories of the trickster today for healing our world. www.whatissynchronicity.com

Fractals-The Foundation of Synchronicity: Terry Mark-Tarlow, EP 239

Or listen to an audio version HERE on Anchor.fm

The universe is composed of fractals. From the cells of the body to far away galaxies, fractals move the patterns for patterns. Branching, for example, exists in neurons, lungs, capillaries, tree roots and branches, and snowflakes. Fractals are composed of pattern repetitions across both time and space. They merge our inner world and our outer world, governing intuition. They form the foundations for synchronicities.
