A fascinating glimpse into our brains with Albuquerque-based neuropsychologist Dr. Barbara Koltuska-Haskin author of How My Brain Works: A Guide to Understanding It Better and Keeping It Healthy.  How does the work of a neuropsychologist differ from other mental health professionals and what happens during a cognitive evaluation ? How can a neuropsychologist help someone with traumatic brain injury, ADHD or apparent decline during aging ?   Dr. Koltuska’s book is an International Book Awards finalist, a short, concise and easy-to-read volume packed with clear information.  A delightful surprise in her book and during this interview is how Dr. Koltuska complements her years of clinical work with her joy of gardening and the wealth of knowledge she’s gleaned about herbs and nutrition that help to support brain health throughout our lives. www.drkoltuska.com

A former Catholic priest, Tom has always wished he could speak directly to Jesus about the deep, disturbing questions he has about faith, religion, guilt and sexuality.  After leaving the Church and marrying a wonderful woman, he became friends with writer Mercedes Kirkel who has been blessed with a gift of inner listening and contact with the spirits of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.   In this soul-searching interview for her new book, “Dialogues with Yeshua and Mary Magdalene : The Journey to Love,” Mercedes explains in a down-to-earth way what is meant by “channeling” and offers a glimpse of the conversation between Tom and Yeshua (Jesus’s Aramaic name) and his most devoted disciple Mary Magdalene, revealing simple wisdom.  www.mercedeskirkel.com
