Tom Pinkson, Ph. D

Talking with Tomas is like stepping into the private office of a true master walking the earth.  I am so thankful to call Tom a mentor, and am continually in awe of the way he walks in this world and the power of his word and work. In this Shift chat we explore the power of gratitude, awareness, and how we tell our personal “story” – as keys to aligning ourselves with our higher truth.  Establishing a “Right Relationship” to ourselves, each-other and nature is something that we all can achieve – and Tom helps thousands of people get there via his work, and his transformational books. “Fruitful Aging” and “Lessons from the Huichol” – books on spirit and life medicine for the modern world.  Tom is the Full circle / Chronic Wellness resident expert on Spirituality and I could not be more excited to introduce him to you in this interview.  (Spoiler; He even sings be a song….#blessed) .  And tremendous gratitude to the forces that brought this tremendous man into our lives.  Enjoy
