The release of The Cogjam Effect is right around the corner. While you’re waiting, you can get a head start with sample chapters available on Amazon:
Fifty years ago today, humankind was taking its first steps on the moon. I especially recall one particular summer day, images forever etched in memory: sitting on the lawn, staring at the moon in awe, with teenage friends whispering to one another “we’re up there right now.”
Thus was I doubly blessed. Not only did I come of age in an era where challenging outdated norms brought major advancements, but also witnessed the incredible things passions and talents could do when people work together–even a moon landing.
Today I took my own small step for a woman, including fantasies of a giant leap for humankind, provided others meld with the mission. You see, today I finished mailing 500+ pre-release copies of The Cogjam Effect – and the Path to Healing Divisive Community and Fractured Science to every sitting member of the U. S. Congress and Supreme Court.
Why them, before anyone else sees it? Because they deserve it. Politicians have valiantly struggled with cogjam much longer than the rest of us. It feeds the roots of ineffective problem solving and political divisiveness, tainting anything they might try to accomplish. The lessons of recent brain science, trauma research, and disaster experience, and how they apply to today’s polarizing, may well help them break pattern and move forward.
As all of us can do in our own lives, in our own way:
Every individual effort counts, no matter how small or whether it gets immediate results. Cultural change is slow, and the world can only be saved in increments. We should rejoice in these increments as they happen–that in itself is healing. Even retired baby-boomers can contribute in ways that reap future benefits, without our still being around to witness the final results.
And for you younger generations . . . the sky is still the limit.
Kharis Publishing plans to release The Cogjam Effect – and the Path to Healing Divisive Community and Fractured Science in September 2019. Stay tuned!

Soon, there will be guidance for traversing these chaotic and confusing political times:
Stay tuned, everybody!
We’ve made it this far. We’re still breathing. The world still turns on its axis.
Not to say the polarizing and political hostilities haven’t been painful. Nor that it hasn’t been a struggle—personally, interpersonally, within our communities, and as a nation. We have struggled, indeed.
All the same, think back to the level of angst and argumentativeness circling in our midst a year ago. Yes, it’s still around. But for most of us it has become at least somewhat more tempered. Our reactions to stressful events are focusing more on solutions and less on aimless, distressed lashing out. A shift has scented the air.
Why? Because resilience is winning out, as it always does following disaster. We’ve begun to unravel the tangle, and are adjusting for the better.
But why are some already well down the road of personal recovery, while others are not? Reasons vary. But there is hope for all.
My upcoming book, The Cogjam Effect – and the Path to Healing Divisive Community and Fractured Science, is a recovery roadmap. Regardless of whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, or otherwise politically affiliated, this book provides answers:
In weeks to come, I will share portions of my book that can assist with your own transformation, as well as keep you up to date on the publishing progress of The Cogjam Effect.
