192. Recovery Advocate Allen Schwartz

Rough Stones

Episode 192 of The Path to Authenticity features Allen Schwartz. Allen is a recovery advocate who also serves as a prayer chaplain at Unity of the Palm Beaches. He’s been an important figure in my life since we first met in 1996. And, he’s one of those people who makes everyone smile when he walks in the room. I’m grateful Allen agreed to be a guest. We had this conversation the evening of January 6, 2021. I was happy to talk to Allen on such a troubling day in America. Enjoy.   -Tom
