Are you ready to discover true intimacy in life, whether in deeply satisfying friendships or romantic relationships? How do you find the courage, how do you allow the vulnerability, to take the risks? How do you recover from wounded trust in the past? How do you find the trust to "be real" in the present?

Dr. Robert Forman, Founder and DIrector of the Forge Institute for Spirituality & Social Change, recently launched the new Soul Jazz program, bringing soul to life and relationships. One of the world's leading experts in the study of Mysticism, as well as a spiritual counselor, Robert returns to the show to talk honestly and spontaneously with host Susan Larison Danz.

A reflection of his fascinating 39-year journey of personal spiritual enlightenment, Robert's highly acclaimed memoir Enlightenment Ain't What It's Cracked Up to Be: A Journey of Discovery, Snow and Jazz in the Soul, was praised as "definitely chicken soup for the spiritual seeker's soul" by Jack Canfield.

The lessons Robert has to convey are intensely personal and heartfelt, yet also reflect his 20 years experience as a Professor of Comparative Religions, with a PhD from Columbia University and professorships at City University of New York and Vassar College. He is the author of over ten books, as well as the Co-Founder of the Journal on Consciousness Studies.
