Mentioned in the podcast, but not on the blogs above, is the following information:

Dr. Emina Karamanovski has completed eModes: Tools for Emotional Health and Understanding just in time for the World Congress. This is a deck of 50 emotional message cards that will help you develop the ability to listen to your emotions in a completely different way. The cards will help you learn how to identify and understand your emotions so that you no longer feel the need to fight, suppress, or unconsciously react to your emotions. eModes are helpful alone, and also make a great companion to Dr. Karamanovski's successful book, Emotions Simplified.

Both are available at

Also mentioned in this podcast is the current situation in Iran. At the Congress, Hadi Asghari, a former Iranian military officer, talked about his years of imprisonment following the Iranian Revolution. Walking, and even running now, Mr. Asghari remains an enduring testament to the defiant power of the human spirit.
