Seeking Balance in Chaotic Times

by H. Kimball Jones, PhD

From the beginning, 2017 has been a year marked by extreme political chaos throughout the world and particularly here in the U.S.  There has been toxic divisiveness in the country as a whole, in communities, even in families where communication has broken down because of differing political alliances.
