One of my favorite guests, author Mel Schwartz, returns to the show to share his thoughts on the election and the country. We also dive into the topic, ‘what would it be like to live in a post-truth world.’ As always Mel has some highly engaging ideas and paradigm expanding observations.
Mel Schwartz is a psychotherapist, marriage counselor, author, speaker, and corporate leadership and communications consultant. He practices in Westport, CT and Manhattan and works globally by Skype.
He earned his L.C.S.W. from Columbia University and Masters of Philosophy from Lancaster University, in England.
Mel has enjoyed several defining moments in his life, which have enabled him to live a life of the self-actualization techniques he espouses.
In mid-life, in business and with two young children, he envisioned a life with much deeper purpose. In one of his defining moments, Mel chose to make a move in an entirely different direction, one filled with uncertainty. He decided to enroll in graduate school to follow his passion: serving others as a psychotherapist.
He is one of the first contemporary practicing psychotherapists to distill the basic premises of quantum theory into therapeutic approaches, which enable people to overcome their challenges and live to their fullest potential.
Mel’s first book, The Art of Intimacy, The Pleasure of Passion, broke new ground in illuminating the path to joyful relationships and has benefited countless people. He’s the author of The Possibility Principle: How Quantum Physics Can Improve the Way You Think, Live and Love (Sounds True, Sep. 2017). His blog A Shift of Mind at Psychologytoday.com has been viewed by more than 3 million readers. Mel supervises therapists and offers professional training in his therapeutic approach. He has been a keynote speaker at Yale University and Smilow Wellness Yale New Haven. His TEDx talk Overcoming Anxiety is viewed by over 50,000 people each month. Mel is a member of the Society for Consciousness Studies and has been interviewed by numerous TV, radio, and print media.
