My Interview with Andrew Harvey on Betrayal

October 1, 2017

Listen to my twelve-minute interview with Andrew Harvey here:

Andrew Harvey

Andrew, why do you consider betrayal to be one of the most difficult forms of adversity to overcome?
Betrayal is quite simply the most devastating experience that anyone can live through, especially if it’s betrayal as I went through it — betrayal from a teacher whom I loved with all my soul and heart and who had been an immense source of strength and revelation for me.

Betrayal dissolves every kind of concept that you have of reality and plunges you into a groundless abyss. This, of course, is an appalling experience, but it’s also… if you can stay in love with love in the dark, this experience can lead to a massive revelation of the presence of the Divine in and through everything, which permanently transforms you.

I wouldn’t wish the experience of betrayal that I’ve had on anyone, but looking back I realize it was absolutely essential for my evolution. The betrayal I had at the hand of my teacher, which I wrote about in Sun at Midnight, was a betrayal that ended one life. I died when I realized that I’d been hopelessly sold down the river in a very dangerous way. But that death wasn’t into chaos. It was into a much larger, more spacious realization. Also, I believe that betrayal isn’t just the most difficult experience that a human being can go through. It’s also an (more…)

Wayne Dyer

Before I interviewed Wayne Dyer for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, I had the privilege of interviewing him for The Edge, a Minneapolis-based spiritual magazine. He was very insightful and inspiring. Big surprise!

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, affectionately called the “Father of Motivation” by his fans, is one of the most widely known and respected authorities in the field of self-empowerment. He became a well-known author with his best-selling book, Your Erroneous Zones, and has gone on to write many other self-help classics, including Meditations for Manifesting, Staying on the Path, Your Sacred Self, Everyday Wisdom, and You’ll See It When You Believe It.

Despite his childhood spent in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer, who has a doctorate in counseling psychotherapy, has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same. For more information, go to

The headline on the ad promoting your seminar is, “There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem,” which is also the title of your new book. I’m reminded of H. L. Mencken’s quote, ‘For every difficult and complex problem, there is a solution that is easy, simple and wrong.’ How does one begin the process of finding the right solution, the spiritual solution to a problem?
Well, I think one does it by recognizing that problems are only things that exist because of the way we process our lives and everything that happens in our world. We need to learn to (more…)

I loved listening to Wayne’s responses. He’s always so enthusiastic and insightful. Toward the end of the interview, I got a big bonus! Wayne mentions that he laughed at a birthday card he received on his 64th birthday. It read, “Inside this card is a special message from God.” He opened the card to find the words, “See you soon!”

That was fun to hear because I wrote that card! I’ve been writing greeting cards since 1990 and have sold well over (more…)
