It Didn’t Start With You – An Interview with Mark Wolynn

I talked to my friend Mark Wolynn about his eye-opening new book, It Didn’t Start With You, for Psychology Today.  Mark’s book is a groundbreaking approach to transforming traumatic legacies passed down in families over generations. Mark is Director of The Family Constellations Institute and an expert in healing inherited trauma. I learned a lot from our conversation.

Spirit Pig Interview

It was great to talk to Duncan CJ for his video interview series SpiritPig. When he first approached me, the name threw me off, then I saw his roster of past interviews and realized the guy is the real deal. Intelligent questions and a good conversation. Spirit Pig is a non-profit dedicated to exploring the art of living an awakened life. It features free, uncensored, raw interviews with some of the most interesting voices in psychology, spirituality, and the arts sharing advice on on a vast array of topics that inspire, stimulate and motivate. Watch the video.

From Crisis to Creativity

I recently had an interview published in Art & Inspiration, a free bilingual English/French e-magazine & website with a directory of international artists. In the article titled From Crisis to Creativity: an Interview with Mark Matousek, I discuss the common threads in the stories from my book When You’re Falling, Dive, how to face crisis, as well as my philosophy that each of us is born with creative genius.  I hope you enjoy it.

Art & Inspiration

A piece about my work just came out in Art & Inspiration, an online magazine published in France (the article appears in both English and French). The theme of this issue is crisis and creativity; I’m interviewed along with Carolyn Myss and three other writers. Tess Nurman, the very young, very smart editor and founder of Art and Inspiration, talked to me by Skype for an hour – about my personal life and books, especially “When You’re Falling, Dive,” then assembled a gallery of ancient photographs that took me WAY back … like seeing my life flash before my eyes. Art and Inspiration is published quarterly and is full of powerful pieces and terrific visuals. I’m happy to be in such good company.
