Here is your chance to practice your Spanish (or, if you are a fluent speaker, to laugh at my Uruguayan-accented Spanglish!).
The interview is with dynamic young psychologist and adventurer from Spain, Nuria Lopez: It is in three parts. Stick around for the bottom of Part 3, and you will hear me play (a bit of) one of my compositions on guitar, plus meet Linda, at work on her mosaics!
Yesterday, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Gena Kirby from Austin Texas for her blog radio. Cup of tea, sit back, and click HERE…

Finally, it’s ready. So pleased with the result. I have added about 50 pages of new material, in an addendum at the end. This has empowered the book, as well as shown a couple of areas for which new reading and study has led me to modify my views somewhat. Parenting for a Peaceful World has been an evolving manuscript. And the price has dropped considerably. You can buy the new, bigger and better edition from Amazon, HERE!
Soon, this 2nd edition will also be out also with Book Depository and other online booksellers.
So, to avoid confusion: there are now only three versions of Parenting for a Peaceful World. This new 2nd edition, seen above, is available everywhere except UK and Europe. The UK edition (pretty much the same information!), available for UK and Europe; which looks like this:
And finally, the Kindle version (whole world).
If you have loved this book, please tell your friends.
And as a preview, you can read the brand new preface here. I’m very excited with the second edition, it contains an extra 50 (roughly!) pages of updates, new information, new ideas. (which brings it onto line with the UK version).
And in December 2013, I’m off on a 7-city book-tour of USA, sponsored by Kindred Magazine. Here are all the tour dates, and booking information.
At the Camelot Lounge last Sunday 3rd November for the Spooky Men’s Chorale new album launch. Thoroughly spooked by the experience. It would be reductionist to acknowledge the Spooky Men for their sublime musicianship. Yes, they rendered ancient harmonies so tenderly that our spirits soared. And though we laughed until our ribs rattled and our faces shone with tears, this is so much more than comedy. Well, if it is, then call it Divine Comedy. The Spooks have something profound to say. They are philosophers, therapists, shamans for our time. Sitting before them I felt these men hold a torch, a beacon for a most unique and irreplaceable phenomenon: Australian maleness. A model of Aussie blokeness that I aspire to, and celebrate in myself. When I lose my lunch in this sea of poker machines, beer mania and mono-dimensional sports-madness, I will look to the Spooky Men to renew my faith. Go the Spooks!!!! You found that perfect meeting place of true Magnificence, fierceness, complete irreverence and a total rejection of the grandiose. You trample bullshit, you deflate every ego – lovingly! You give total affection to that which is pathos, loss, and the endearing confusion that lives in the wonderful Men that we are. True love in song, like only men can do. Thank you, men of the mountains, for what you remind us of. I vote you as leaders of Australian culture and role models for what is most special and unique in Aussie maleness.
See what I mean: Here!
In conversation with Niyati Libotte (mother, singer, writer, interviewer), of Health Professional Radio online. Our chinwag was served as a 7-course meal, you can pick and choose which and when. Enjoy! (Click…………here!)
As we release the second edition of Parenting for a Peaceful World, Kindred Community and I have teamed up to criss-cross the USA and present a series of events that will include bilingual workshops for parents, teachers and health professionals in Tucson and Atlanta, a walk around Washington DC, a retreat in historic Yorktown, Virginia, and a Drumming for Peace (Love-in!) at Charlottesville, VA. Plus a wine-and-cheese book signing and talk at the Museum of Motherhood, New York.

Take courage from this: the world’s top financing institutions are starting to wind back from subsidising new coal-fired power stations. They are sounding more and more worried, more determined to pull us back from the brink of climate disaster. Even the most hard-hearted capitalists are feeling that coal and oil are starting to be a bad investment. This is great news for all of us, for our non-human kin, for the biosphere! It’s time to redouble our efforts, filled with confidence now, to demand our governments regulate for a full switch to green energy, 100%. This is feasible, economical, and life-saving. Let’s go!
