Episode Description

Claire Myers Owens left home at 20 to chart her own course, seeking adventure and freedom. With no role models, that was easier said than done. The expectations of her parents, spouses, and society held her back. The banning of her first book embarrassed her. She believed the judgment that it was risqué and apologized saying she was young. Later in life she realized how important her book was and that society’s judgments were the problem. She hoped one day someone would understand and re-publish the book. My guest, Miriam Friedman, did just that. She then became Claire’s biographer, determined that the modern world know about Claire, who persevered despite the constant road blocks. Claire became a key figure in the Human Potential Movement along with founder Abraham Maslow. Toward the end of her life, she found comfort through her spiritual search for meaning, joined the Zen Center, and became a voice for their teachings. Please join us Thursday and let Claire’s life inspire you.

You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness.
