Author, therapist and coach Lori Carpenos has seen that what affects our relationships the most is our state of mind. When the couples she works with see that &#8216;working on&#8217; their relationship is not the answer to a loving relationship, that&#8217;s when everything changes.<br />

<br />
Lori Carpenos opened a private individual, couples and family counseling practice, in 1994, to pass along something she had stumbled upon in 1985, when she was privileged to meet the late Sydney Banks. As a result, her life changed in ways she could never have imagined at that time.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
She maintains a private practice in West Hartford, CT as a therapist, life coach, business consultant, facilitator, and writer.<br />

<br />
<br />
Alexandra: Lori Carpenos, welcome to Unbroken.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Lori: Oh, thank you, Alexandra. It&#8217;s nice to be with you.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Alexandra: It&#8217;s great to have you here. I&#8217;m so happy to meet you.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Tell us a bit about your background and how you came to find the Three Principles.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Lori: Well, they actually found me. It was quite by happenstance. I&#8217;d never heard of Sydney Banks, never heard of the three principles. I was an art teacher in Massachusetts, and I got a master&#8217;s in expressive arts therapy. I had this idea I wanted to do art therapy. And the place for that was California.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
So I was 25 years old, and I decided to quit my tenured art teacher job. Much to the dismay of my parents. They tried to stop me. But I felt called in retrospect, when I realized it was not to be an art therapist, because I&#8217;m driving across the country. Because California was known as the land of New Thought and new things. And art therapy was supposedly really big.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
I get halfway across. And I&#8217;m listening to a program, NPR, where they&#8217;re talking about a bill that had just passed in California, eliminating art, music, all the extra curricular activities in hospitals, schools, and I couldn&#8217;t believe it. It was like I was hearing something that was not true. And I&#8217;m thinking well, I&#8217;m halfway there. I already quit my job. I don&#8217;t have a job back on the east coast. So what do I do?<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
I decided to keep going. I didn&#8217;t have a job. I knew one person in Northern California where I was headed to. No job, a cocktail waitress with my master&#8217;s degree my pocket...
