The Positive Psychology of Synchronicity (2nd edition of Chris’s book) was released in August 2019.
On 18th December, Michelle describes the synchronicity she experienced in encountering Destination Happiness, Chris’s book on synchronicity and a character strengths questionnaire. This led to many benefits for Michelle and others.

On 6th November, Suzanne describes how a psychic helped her feel connected with her deceased father by passing on some uncannily meaningful messages.
On 25th September, Yogi describes the synchronicity of encountering James Pawelski, a leader of the positive psychology field in a U.S. customs queue. This was all the more striking as Chris had mentioned Yogi’s capacity for making uncanny connections with people in the recent 14th August segment. Her husband, Aidan, had then told of a surprising encounter against all odds.
On 11th September, Chris describes some striking synchronicity around his recent book launch tour to London including the date of the launch at Watkins book store, a trident symbol, the Hindu God Shiva (who is associated with a trident) and a flavoursome English ale called The Optimistic Monk.
On 14th August, Aidan describes an encounter with a fellow traveller in a U.S. hostel that was anticipated by a friend, but way against the odds.
On 31st July, Neil tells a truly amazing story about his encounter with a “psychic monk”. It’s an extended story, but it’s well worth waiting for the end.
On 17th July, Chris’s friend, Ross, tells of how his life was saved by acting on an “intimation” to move across to the other side of the road when he was resting beside a highway. Ross also described a delightful story of the universe providing in a remarkably uncanny way, in this case helping manifest a new oven within minutes of learning he needed one.
On 3rd July, Michael rang with the story of how his father had a remarkable near miss when he re-booked a plane flight and avoided a calamity. Jeremy rang with an affirming example of a fortuitous email arriving at 11:11, supporting the philosophy of serving others.

In the segment below from 5th June, Ian describes his uncannily frequent experience of someone calling him at the very instant he is about to ring them. This can helpfully add to a sense of connection with others.
