  • This episode is about mystical activism, consciousness, healing, and divine reality. My guest is John Robinson.

    John C. Robinson, is a clinical psychologist with a second doctorate in ministry. He is an ordained interfaith minister, the author of nine books and numerous articles on the psychology, spirituality, and mysticism of the New Aging. John Robinson is a frequent speaker at Conscious Aging Conferences across the country. His new book, Mystical Activism: Transforming a World in Crisis is available on Amazon.

    Robinson explains that the word mysticism simply refers to the firsthand experience of the divine. It is the moments when the mind stops its chatter, perception heightens, and we subtly experience the sacred Presence that pervades Creation. It's a breakthrough of the divine into personal awareness. Mystical consciousness arises from this same awakened, thought-free, sacred awareness. Everything is perceived as sacred, including us, for the Beloved has become the world and everything in it. This awakening of perception leads naturally to Mystical Activism for we act now from a conscious unity with Creation and instinctively strive to protect her. In the process, we experience the kind of world we want to live in. This is "mysticism in action!"

  • In this episode, I talk to Rabbi Poupko about the connection between religion and wellbeing, as well as the dangers of religious intolerance and the freedom religious people have in the United States.

    As an orthodox Jewish, Rabbi Poupko has encountered people in the United States who were clearly dedicated Christians. Each and every encounter reflected a high level of mutual respect and understanding.

    Historically speaking, the United States has been the first country in history to not only successfully create a full-fledged secular democracy, but to be the first one to allow people with radically different religious beliefs to live side by side in peace. – writes Rabbi Poupko

His TEDx talk "The High Price of Political Polarization", focuses on the impact current hyper-partisanship has on us.

  • We’re all too familiar with the diets and cleanses that we set the intention to embark upon, but are never quite able to follow through with. Why is that? We think we just sabotage ourselves with unhealthy food, but the reality is that we sabotage ourselves with disregard for what we need most to feel good…. unconditional self-love.

    Weight loss is not about managing food, but managing your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings around food.

    When we become so fixated on the goal of losing weight that we forget to consider our own needs, thoughts, feelings, and emotions, how can we expect to see real results?

    - This statement was found at Gooddeciosions.com

    If this is a topic you relate to, you will find this interview helpful.

    My conversation is with Patricia Baisden. We talk about weight loss, acceptance, faith and more.

    Patricia has faced challenges with self-image since she was a child, which resulted in weight fluctuation over the years.

    She has come to accept herself as a creature of God which has enabled her to see the value within herself and empowered her to lose 105 pounds!

  • Do all knowledge ultimately means Self-knowledge?

    In Ancient Greece, when the philosopher Socrates was asked to sum up what all philosophical commandments could be reduced to, he replied: ‘Know Yourself’. Self-knowledge matters so much because it is only on the basis of an accurate sense of who we are that we can make reliable decisions – particularly around love and work.

    Although my conversation with Howard Chasser was meant to be (mainly) around the topics of

    the Natural foods business and organic foods, we expanded and talked about self-knowledge, spirituality and philosophical ideas.

    Howard Chasser was practically born into the Natural foods business. His mother opened their natural food store (Jandi’s) when Howard was just nine years old. He later went on to earn a degree in accounting with minors in business administration and psychology. Howard joined his mother and brother full time at Jandi’s in 1991. He also participated in the passing of DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994).

  • “Sometimes we let life guide us, and other times we take life by the horns. But one thing is for sure: no matter how organized we are, or how well we plan, we can always expect the unexpected.”

    - Brandon Jenner

    In this episode, Jill Kay talks about unexpected changes and how health and wellness can create a quality of life for us, both personally and professionally.

  • Who we believe we are, how we relate to others, and how we engage with the world around us is directly aligned with our purpose.

    While everybody has a life purpose, many people remain unconscious of it throughout their entire lives.

    The danger of being unconscious of our life purpose is that we may confuse it with our worldly goals, such as career, making money, and being successful. – Writes Jayne Stevenson

    In this episode, Yaron Bedid talks about

    change, purpose and organic foods!

    Yaron Bedid was an established Real Estate Entrepreneur who in spite of his success knew that he wanted to do something different with his life.

  • “Every life lived is an untold story waiting to be written.”

    What I have discovered is that the mind does not know, it only collecting information. It can help me drive a car and remember how to turn on the coffee pot. It can help me spell and write stories that have meaning to me. It remembers (sometimes) where I put my keys and how to get to the store. But when it comes to decision making it is truly inept, a light switch on a fake wall, disconnected from its power source. My mind has gotten me into more predicaments, more trouble than I care to remember but am inclined not to forget. – Writes Candace Conradi

  • You are always awake, but you are not always consciously awake. In fact, you are rarely consciously awake. And because you’ve been unconsciously awake for thousands of years in the DNA and softer conditioning associated with the body you thought you were, you’ll fall right back into unconsciousness if you don’t consistently and actively nourish it with conscious light.

    You have to be willing to shine truth, even when you don’t feel like yourself, even when you don’t want to, on things you’d rather leave in the dark. You must hold nothing back. Willingness is your bridge into being the shining on an ongoing basis. You give yourself to the light fully, or you don’t give yourself at all.

    This was written by Fred Davis in “The Book of Undoing: Direct Pointing to Nondual Awareness

    In this episode, Fred Davis talks about Spiritual Awakening, Non-dual reality, love and more…

    Fred Davis is a spiritual un-teacher. He studied and practiced Eastern wisdom for twenty-five years prior to 2006, when seeking ended, and his true awakening began. He is the creator and editor of Awakening Clarity Now.com. Fred Davis says he has Nothing to offer.

    Fred’s The Living Method of Spiritual Awakening is a process of nondual inquiry, investigation, and direct pointing that encourages immediate recognition and acceptance of our shared true nature, Oneness. Following recognition, The Living Method then helps to orient and clear the seeker-become-finder.

  • We invest a lot of energy trying to fix things that result from our surrender of responsibility over our own lives, due to feeling disempowered. All of the issues we currently face in our inner and outer worlds, are the result of us having delegated that responsibility to others (partners, doctors, governments, politicians) and expecting them to fix things for us. That, in turn, comes from our early programming, which sets us up to believe that we are not powerful/good enough to orchestrate our own lives. – Olga Sheean

    In this episode, Olga Sheean explores ways of reclaiming our autonomy by transforming our negative programs, creating new boundaries and making empowered choices that create a positive shift inside and out.

    Olga Sheean is an empowerment catalyst—a sort of 'archaeologist of the mind', dedicated to excavating the deeper truth buried in every complex, amazing, powerful human being. Using her own unique framework for self-mastery, she specializes in identifying and transforming the negative subconscious programs that drive our circumstances, relationships, self-worth and success. She shows individuals how to reclaim their autonomy, leverage their magnetism, and transform crises and challenges into breakthroughs and strengths.

  • When you think of “learning” or “education” you may think of acquiring practical skills, scientific knowledge or simply factual or historical information about the world.

    How to build a house; how to fix a car engine; mathematics; human psychology; history of ancient Greece etc.

    But what if you could obtain an education which is not only professionally, scientifically or practically useful – like helping to create a new career – but also personally and spiritually expansive in that your life is transformed in some meaningful and permanent way. This is a type of education known as “transformative learning”. - aleftrust.org

  • Carl Jung wrote: “The symbols of the self arise in the depths of the body.”

    People engage in body-oriented psychotherapy to reconnect with their instincts, affirm their feelings, develop healthier relationships, and explore more satisfying ways of working. They want to learn how to embody their deepest values. Along the way, they often form a more realistic body image. They come to know and love who they are, and connect with a life force that is deeper and more meaningful than they have previously known.

    - The Dancing Body in Psychotherapy

    In this episode, Setsuko Tsuchiya explains why dance is one of the oldest forms of somatic therapy.
