Show Notes   Our guest today is psychologist and spiritual director Dr Marshall Jenkins.   Marshall and I have been chatting off and on for a couple of months now.

I am intrigued. Let’s see what Marshal has to say about that as we dive deep into a meaningful conversation.  LINKS  You can find out more about Marshall Jenkins...

He makes stuff happen… Keith brings to us more than thirty years of walking through life with others. He is known for his empathy and compassion when he “holds space” as a witness to our times of grief… as well as times of discovery.  LINKS ...

Show Notes #306 Courtney Marchesani Today’s guest, Courtney Marchesani, is one of my very favorites. I think she has been on the show four times over the past six years!

Her insights into sensitivity help readers identify their gifts of intuition, empathy, vision, and expression as a means to maximize their potential. As you will soon discover, Courtney’s empathic style emphasizes nonjudgement and acceptance and learning how sensitivity’s silent effects can impact mental, emotional, spiritual health and...

Show Notes  After a three-month break from doing podcasts, we’re back. I am very much looking forward to our new season. You know, I needed a time of intentional pondering about what I might like to do in my final chapter of what I call “a life richly lived.” This year, in September, I turn 75. Three quarters of a century. Enough time to live a life meaning, adventure, and awe—which has been the theme the of The Next Chapter with Charlie for the past 9 years. After considering the purpose of my web presence, the theme of meaning, adventure, and awe continues… but perhaps with...

Show Notes  I planned and prepared for our podcast today. And come showtime I was ready to roll. One problem: Exactly at showtime, there was no guest to be found. Who knows why? Instead of just cancelling the studio time, I made a quick call to Terry Hershey who immediately said, “What are friends for? Let’s do the show!” So, here we are with a fun show. No prep. Little direction. Just a title from a Krista Tippett quote: “We plan… and things go wrong.” LINKS Click here for a link to get a copy Terry’s book, .

Show Notes  Our guest today is so fun. My personal assistant, the amazing Melissa DeLacey, loves Nikki and so will you after you hear what she has to say.  Nikki La Croce is yet another of those rule-breaking millennials. Just so you know, I love the Gen Z’s and Millennials who bring to us a refreshed sense of passion and purpose… with values that are both traditional as well as shocking. So fun!!!  Regarding a bit shocking… Nikki hosts a popular podcast with the title of “Who the F*ck?” Soon to be rebranded “Who the F*ck Am I?” Just the “name” of her show...

Show Notes 

Today’s show takes us on a journey down that “road less traveled.” Today we will learn about the value of life from the insights of author and professor, Dr. Donna Friess. Donna will talk to us about the value of nostalgia, overcoming childhood tragedy, and her fervent belief, that in spite of anything, happiness is a choice.

My colleague Barbara Kimler, a publicist and consultant, recommended that I read Donna’s latest book “Growing Up Venice” and then perhaps interview her on the show. After reading her book I quickly concluded that I must chat with Donna Friess on The Next Chapter with Charlie.

Donna’s book not only highlights the fascinating growth and evolution of Venice CA, it also captured me with a renewed sense of the value of nostalgia—something we seem to have dismissed in a culture so full of itself in the Present and the Future. And when we do speak of the past it is most always in the negative. Donna Friess offers a refreshing perspective on this.

Dr. Donna Friess is the author of at least 10 books, a retired college professor, an historian, and a most avid learner. Her book Cry the Darkness, which we will discuss, has been translated into 7 languages.

 

For more on Dr. Donna Friess check out her insightful and popular books:

Growing Up Venice: Parallel Universes

Cry the Darkness: One Woman’s Triumph Over the Tragedy of Incest
