Join us as multi Walkley Award winning journalist, Thom Cookes, shares his experiences and insights from years of investigative reporting in conflict zones around the globe, on what makes a good person. We all have a vague idea of what we think a good person looks like, but when we try to explain what that 'something' is it can be hard to do.
Thom shares real world experiences of seeing people at their best even though everything they have has just been ripped away from them, and distils those traits down to things all of us can practice or do more of to become a better person.
Thom is a journalist, producer and camera operator, working in factual/current affairs broadcast and online media.
He has extensive post-production and online experience, and over 20 years of reporting and filming in remote, conflict and disaster zones, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Kosovo, the Palestinian Territories, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, the PNG Highlands, Southern Thailand, Cambodia, West Africa, Colombia, Brazil, Guatemala, Honduras etc., as well as two Walkley Awards for international journalism and a Quill for cinematography (in Afghanistan).

He spent three years as a video producer and researcher for a global project to combat mosquito-bourne viruses, helping to build an online multi-lingual resource for scientists and community engagement specialists, documenting fieldwork in Colombia, Brazil, Vietnam, Indonesia and Northern Australia.
He's filmed and directed a number of award-winning documentaries, including ; "The Very Thin Blue Line" (following the training of Iraqi police recruits), which launched CNN's global documentary strand "World's Untold Stories" ; "The Rules Of The Game", a feature documentary on tribal politics in Papua New Guinea for SBS and PBS ; and his film "In Their Sights" for ABC's Four Corners, (on targeted killing by special forces in Afghanistan), won the Walkley for International Reporting.

Episode #75 - Relationships and Karma - The Wellness Couch chats with International Best Selling Author Suzy Singh

February 11, 2021
From a spiritual POV, the idea behind karmic relationships is that the two of you made an agreement before your souls entered this lifetime, to help each other on your respective paths. Very often,there are numerous unresolved issues from past lives. When people open to learning rather than try to control each other, then much healing can occur.
In this way, karmic relationships are like guides or teachers. And usually, they're temporary. They're meant to help you grow at soul level in often difficult push-pull ways. But usually they are not intended to last a long time. This is because you are coming together in this life to clear karma between each other. It's often a balancing out of a bad experience from a past life.
But no matter what you call it, it does help to understand patterns in any relationship—especially toxic ones. Knowing if you're in a karmic relationship can help you move forward and work through whatever lesson is presenting itself through that person—so when you do move forward, you'll be ready for a love that lasts.
