    I wish I lived in Washington DC, because I would train with Brach. She's incredibly gifted with much to teach us about ourselves as psychotherapists. It was no surprise that I spotted many seasoned psychologists, authors (themselves presenters) treating themselves to a day of meditation and self-reflection and the use of meditation w/in the context of therapy in Brach's all-day workshop--a more in depth look at "RAIN." It was the perfect way for me to end camp. Thank you.

    I've heard from a reliable source that the audio for the Kagen/Siegal exchange is unavailable which is very disappointing. I had a friend there, a child psychologist and she too agreed it was an intense, exciting and very respectful exchange. She reports that both men agreed to meet and collaborate in an upcoming Networker piece. If I were the editors, I'd be ALL OVER this to make sure they follow through, passions still high. Out of a live candid exchange, it's this kind of controversy: live, unrehearsed and real that will sell magazines and keep us old-timers coming back for more. The same-old, same-old gets well, old.

    As a Symposium vet, I've listened to difficult keynotes--ones that bring us face to face with social injustice and downright outrage. (Ken Hardy's on race and Mary Pipher's on the Lost Boys come to mind and more). But all, like Goleman, trained as psychologists made it a priority to bring it right back to where most of us live which is in the clinical room with our patients. I think it's important for Rich Simon to insist that Keynotes speak to their audience which in this case were 3K mental health providers. Otherwise we could be hearing another op ed piece in the NYTimes. I can stay home and read that online.

    I was so disappointed with Dan Goleman's keynote. He sounded the alarm bells but never brought it back to clinical work or even what, other than going to goodguide.com, we can/should do. I shared my disappointment with a few others and they agreed.
