Dr. Richard Howlin on Joseph Sadony

I credit Joseph Sadony with inspiring me to explore the realm of intuition and giving a taste of the difference between an emotion that is a reaction to a thought, and a thought that is a reaction to a feeling. Every so often, I dust off my copy of Gates of the Mind and get a new clue on my seemingly endless quest to live as an “open gate.” While I can’t do an interview with Josephy Sadony, I’m always curious about those who are familiar with him.
