Poetry: The Rebirth Of Wonder with Joyce Jenkins August 19, 2014 | 5:00 am

Great poets reveal discreet moments in which their own heart and soul lit up. They break open our hearts and minds to the truth behind the truth, the truth beyond mere facts. They lead us into an experience of hyper-truth, hyper-reality. Poems speak our fears and loves out loud. Take a romp into the depths of poetry with Jenkins and Cousineau.

We all hope for dying well and living fully until we do. The truth is that we don’t have a choice about whether or not we’re going to die, but sometimes we have a choice about whether our dying is going to be easier or harder. The hospice movement has been integral in helping patients and their families move through this most intense transition of dying.

"Spirituality is about your deepest relationship to the things that matter—what’s important, who am I, and what is my role in the world. Everyone has to grapple with those questions. So even someone who claims not to be spiritual, they still live those questions. The spiritual journey requires time and it requires cultivation."

Thoughts To Get You Through The Night with Phil Cousineau February 18, 2014 | 5:00 am

“Before the [discovery of] fire, we were probably together for very short periods and living instinctually. But when we could stretch the day into the night and sit around a fire, we extended our use of language and probably monosyllabic communication turned into conversation. And when we were able to talk deep into the night, we moved from ordinary existence into philosophizing which turns into culture and civilization.”

“It’s profoundly ordinary and plain. It’s really nothing at all like what I would have supposed it would be. This new way of being was deeply familiar, and had been there all along. It really is part of human nature, but it’s not at all personal. It has nothing to do with me. It feels more like the nature of reality, what everything is made of, except that in our ordinary awareness we don’t perceive it because we’re so caught up in our minds.”

“Each of the great social achievements of recent decades has come about not because of government proclamations but because people organized, made demands, and made it good politics for governments to respond. It’s the political will of the people that makes and sustains the political will of governments, so if the political will of the people is a bit asleep at the wheel, then the political will of the government is likely to be asleep at the wheel.” --Sam Daley-Harris

Beak traveled the world to fulfill her lifelong desire to find God and an authentic spiritual expression. She says, “I was really looking for this connection to the beloved that I have felt since I was a child…I have a natural respect for each of the religious traditions, I also felt pretty frustrated and a bit alone because try as I might, I couldn’t find a community, tradition, lineage, or a teacher that really resonated with my red heart.” This journey took her through many traditions and lineages and eventually led to a sacred descent of the soul, severing all connections with the divine.

Our core assumptions, our fundamental belief system, determines how we perceive reality, and this actually results in the world we experience, the world that we individually and collectively have created.” Coming from divergent life experiences, they challenge a number of basic assumptions which have driven humanity’s behavior for millennia. The main problem is that many of our beliefs are learned at a very young age and are unconscious.

The Sacred Geometry Of Our Cells with Sondra Barrett, Ph.D. October 1, 2013 | 5:00 am

Cells can only thrive in community; they need to connect with one another, and will call on each other as allies. And, when a cell needs a certain molecule, it actually embraces that molecule; it actually reaches out and hugs the molecule. This embrace is a universal principle of design. Barrett speaks of the sacredness of our cells related to how humans evolved. “The divine spark needs a container. I began thinking, God had to be a biochemist, because how do you build the container? In one of the theories we were mud or we were hot seawater. To form the container the molecules had to come together (these fatty hydrocarbons) like mixing salad oil with water.

For the past three decades, British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has been asking questions that most scientists either haven’t thought of asking, or may be discouraged from asking by the unwritten codes that often prevail in our scientific and academic institutions. He thinks there are many other scientists “… who have spiritual interests, psychic experiences and so forth, that don’t or can’t talk about them to their colleagues. If they do so, they’ll find that many of their colleagues share these interests and that the conversation in the laboratory tea room would become so much more interesting than it is at present.”

This dialogue explores how we may become more consistently gentle, more kind, and more tender with ourselves in this mad-paced world. How may we develop the habit of listening to that little voice inside that is so often ignored in the name of expediency? Posin suggests that we make an agreement with ourselves to take some part of every week to just listen. She says it’s important to make a habit of taking the time to sit quietly with ourselves, and reminds us that it’s also important to keep that commitment no matter what. Rather than taking a large chunk of time, we need to allow ourselves just the right amount of time that we can stick to.

McDonough is committed to helping humankind remake how we make things so as to not pollute the environment and therefore ourselves. He’s convinced that we can live a healthy and sustainable life on the planet if we start asking ourselves the right questions. He speaks about how we need to look closely at nature where nothing is thrown away. Everything in the natural world is used and reused over and over. This is what he means by the endless cycle of “cradle to cradle” rather than “cradle to grave.”

It has been said that the true spirit of science and of spiritually is best supported by an open mind, a non-dogmatic inquiry. Science seeks to understand our external reality and spiritual seekers look to understand our inner, personal experience of consciousness, but adherents to these seemingly different disciplines rarely come together in open dialogue. Intrinsic to both of these modes of thought is the concept of nonduality.

Terry takes us on a whirlwind tour of what it means to give voice to our own authenticity. It requires deep listening and fertile silences. She encourages us to speak “Mother Tongue.” That is speaking from the belly rather than the mind. She laments that in Western culture “the language of economics has power, the language of the law has power, the language of science has power. But an intelligence of the heart, an emotional intelligence, or a poetic sensibility, or even a sensibility that comes from the side, from a different angle, from a different point of view, asks us to form a different kind of shape of conversation.

Gifts From a Near Death Experience with David Bennett July 30, 2013 | 5:00 am

David Bennett was trained as a diver and then an engineer. While he was chief engineer for an ocean going research ship he drowned and had a near-death experience (NDE). Tune-in to his inspiring story as he describes being in the light. “It felt like it was reaching out to me and wrapping me in a warm blanket of pure love. That love was permeating my being and actually transforming me. As I got closer, I was in awe of this light; it was infinite. It looked like millions upon millions of fragments and they were all dancing and interacting together.

The Four Seasons of Moving through Tough Times with Deidre Combs, Ph.D. July 23, 2013 | 5:00 am

There are four phases that show up again and again in order to thrive in challenging times and Combs equates them to the seasons. We get a medical report, we’re facing a divorce, or coping with the death of a loved one. It’s in the autumn when things are falling apart. Combs describes the other seasons thusly, “We recognize there’s some period where things get really dark. We are feeling helpless; that’s the winter of tough times. If we can make it through the winter and pull ourselves back up [we arrive at] the spring and a time of new beginnings and new forms.

Crossing the Murky Moral Terrain of Ethics with Mark Matousek July 16, 2013 | 5:00 am

Are there universal human ethics? Are we moving toward a more ethical future? Mark Matousek has interviewed and researched the subject of ethical wisdom with social scientists, spiritual leaders, ex-cons, altruists and philosophers. He’s examined morality from all angles and suggests that ethics just may be a minefield of opposing ideologies, special interests, and temperamental proclivities. The good news is that humans are hardwired to care for one another, we have a sense of justice and fairness, we share a sense of group loyalty, we have a natural tendency to respect authority, and we are programmed for sacredness and purity.

Saving the World One Mushroom at a Time with Paul Stamets July 9, 2013 | 5:00 am

Mushrooms are our ancestors. Mycelium fields have a consciousness. Most importantly, they create the soil on which all of life on earth depends. And yet, we have identified less than ten percent of all species of mushrooms, and we’re rapidly destroying the habitat they—and we—need to survive. As Paul Stamets says, “We are Neanderthals with nuclear weapons. I sense that our descendents are screaming back from the future saying, ‘Wake up. Don’t you see?’ We have all this ability with Google, and the internet, and the ability to do DNA coding, and yet we don’t have the most elementary understanding of the very organisms that generate the soil that gives us life.

Using the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa, McHugh describes how we are turned to stone by the very technologies we’ve invented. Throughout time human culture has been dominated by these technologies and sometimes they play into our mythos knowing and at other times they play into our logos knowing. When he refers to mythos knowing, he is talking about sensory knowing. He says, “[Mythos] is larger than just our five senses…Emotion as well as intuition, ESP, premonitions, and dreams [are all] sensation based. They are part of your mythos brain …Mythos brain has no sense of history.

This has left him with extreme empathy for patients who come to him. Since medical school he’s educated himself on mind/body syndromes. Discovering he had a lot of anger issues he says, “I wrote a section in my book called the disguises of anger and, looking backward, I could see that I had every disguise going.

For Terry Lásló-Gopadze the idea of sharing stories of spiritual power was born out of a struggle with her own health problems, grief for her desperately ill father, and sadness over her mother’s placement in a nursing home. She found mentors who guided her on a path of healing and growth by the stories they told. Writer and spiritual activist Christina Baldwin, in a story in the book, says, “In a crisis of such proportion as the times we live in, there are no idle stories.

Quakers, also known as “the Society of Friends”, have been part of American history for over 300 years and America’s whole national character and moral fabric has been affected by their commitment to peace and societal equity. They arrived in the mid-1600s and from the start worked for responsible relations with Native Americans. They denounced slavery and were early advocates for women’s rights. Unlike the Puritans they were tolerant of all religious beliefs. Even though they are Christian, they have no priesthood or official pastors.

Has our present economic system been designed for another age? Does it truly serve the needs of the 21st century world? What are the stepping stones to a new economic structure? The answers to these and many other questions are addressed in this informative dialogue. In taking out a loan or a mortgage under the current system, Lietaer and Dunne point out, “When you pay back interest, you’re actually using someone else’s principle. We are fighting for money that has not been created.” They go on to describe some very successful examples of complementary or cooperative currencies that are being successfully implemented today on some very large scales.

Hirshfield points out that many people turn to poetry at great life transitions. She says, “You know when people fall in love, or when they lose love, or lose someone they loved, that is when they want a poem. When they get married they want a poem. These great transitions are larger than the normal, ordinary consciousness. And what poems do is give us a vocabulary for understanding things, which aren’t available through any other use of language.” Her poetry alludes to far ranging subjects such as time, nature, and even science.

Gerald Rosen has seen America from most every vantage point. He grew up in a house without books, obtained an ivy league Ph.D. in literature, and went on to run a liquor store on the edge of Harlem. He’s crossed paths in one way or another with Miles Davis, Jack Kerouac, Janis JoplinÖeven Babe Ruth. So his observations about American culture carry his own particular brand of authenticity. And what he sees has him a little concerned. “We each of us are born into this culture, so we start getting in a sense hypnotized the day we’re born,” he notes. “So we’re Americans-we walk like Americans, we talk like Americans.

He gives specific instructions how to examine our thoughts to identify stories we tell ourselves, and he makes a distinction between feelings and emotions. Moss warns us that if we run away from feelings and link them to thinking, they will turn into emotions.

Integral philosopher McIntosh says the way to approach truth is threefold: science, philosophy, and spirituality. He says, “[W]e know that the scientific, the philosophical, and the spiritual are three authentic and irreducible approaches to truth because there are three kinds of human experience. There’s the sensory experience, upon which science is based. There’s the experience of relationships and meanings that we come to through philosophy, and then there’s the spiritual experience which can’t be reduced to either of those two. In an attempt to try to harmonize science and spirituality without trying to conflate one into the other, philosophy has a very important role of both bridging and separating these three great approaches to truth.” He goes on to point out that evolution always builds on what came before using it as a platform to transcend to a new level of complexity.

The Power Of The Grimm Brother’s Collection Of Folktales with Allan G. Hunter, Ph.D. December 18, 2012 | 5:00 am

Fairytales have given pleasure and delight for centuries, and ultimately many of them have been a source of wisdom for generations of people, who had no psychology textbooks to reference, and no certified therapists to consult. However, in recent decades we’ve “Disneyfied” them and assimilated commercialized versions, while the real tales ­full of wisdom ­remain unread. The collection of tales by the Grimm Brothers deal with some very murky human passions, and they hold the possibility of a productive way of being, on the other side of difficulty. In the early 1800s, the Grimm brothers carefully wrote down stories from itinerant storytellers, who were basically an endangered species and dying out.

He points out that these myths are re-creation stories as opposed to simply creation myths. He also reminds us that we are narrative beings and part of our creativity comes from finding out where in the story we belong. As fundamentalism tells us a story of the end of the world, Meade says that this is just a limited view.

We’ve turned Christianity into a dull, dry system, and it’s as though we feel we have God in our pocket, sort of at our beck and call, and we can kind of pull him out as our little pet.

However, Starr’s experience tells her that she is using many different tools to dig a single deep well Following the interspiritual path goes beyond simply understanding another’s religion: Rather it means, “Embracing the sacred in multiple traditions with discipline and passion.” She speaks of going through the “dark night of the soul” when we no longer feel a connectedness with our spiritual path.

The Great Turning Or The Great Unraveling: It’s Our Choice with Joanna Macy, Ph.D. October 9, 2012 | 5:00 am

Macy points out, “Our earth is alive. It’s not a supply house or a sewer, it is our larger living body with vast evolving intelligence that we are totally a part of and we can draw on.” She encourages us to face the facts of our immense planetary challenges. However, rather than allowing these realities to shut us down, we can choose the practice of active hope. She encourages us to choose the story of “The Great Turning” rather than “The Great Unraveling.”

Moving Into Health Through Energy Healing with Jed Diamond, Ph.D. October 2, 2012 | 5:00 am

More than ever before in history, humans are faced with an overwhelming amount of stress. This leads to debilitating illnesses, addictions, and depression. We need all the help we can get. Jed Diamond suggests that help can be found through energy healing, “[N]o matter how we got sick, no matter what the problem is, if you can get at the energetic under story and be able to heal things at the energetic level, then, in a sense, you also heal all the chemical actions up here But, if you’re only dealing with the top stories you’re not dealing at the roots. You can be taking care of things up here, which we do in modern medicine with symptoms–we get the symptoms to go away–but we never get at the root of the problem.

Toward A More Conscious Economy with David Korten, Ph.D. September 18, 2012 | 5:00 am

Many of us are still reeling from the recent economic meltdown. In the face of so much uncertainty, it’s difficult to make sense of the multitude of analyses and predictions about what’s to come. What does it all mean in the context of the broader shifts in global culture and consciousness? At last there’s a voice of reason that brings not only sanity but consciousness to a real understanding of how our economy works – and why it often doesn’t – and how we can apply principles of spirituality and conscious living to the choices we must make for our own financial survival.

Spiritual Beings In A Material World with Charles Tart, PhD (repeat) September 4, 2012 | 5:00 am

We have this spiritual nature but it’s being denied, and we hurt at some level because of that. Even scientists have this spiritual nature but it’s being denied. So spiritual people and scientists both say, ‘Isn’t the universe wonderful and complex and infinite and beautiful. Let’s be friends.’ That’s nice, but it ignores the fundamental conflict, and materialism says that spirituality is basically all a lot of crap. We’re not facing that root conflict, and that’s what’s got to be faced.” Facing that conflict, and bringing the reality of human spirituality into the public discourse is the work and the mission of Charles Tart.

Changing Our Story To Save The World with Tom Shadyac (repeat) August 28, 2012 | 5:00 am

We’ve been taught that the “real world” is one of disconnected individuals needing to compete in a struggle to survive. After talking with many sociologists, biologists, scientists, linguists, spiritual leaders, and social artists, Shadyac is convinced that, this idea of a “real world,” isn’t the real world. He points out that there is, “strong evidence that we are different than we’ve been told. We really are not separate.

Persevering No Matter What with Margaret J. Wheatley (repeat) August 21, 2012 | 5:00 am

How is it that some people devote their lives to a cause or a person or place, while some others give up and quit? How is it that even in the midst of failures, betrayals, reversals, some people still remain focused and dedicated to their cause? What keeps us persevering? What drags us under when we experience set-backs, failures, criticism? Margaret Wheatley says, “We really don’t know what is going to happen; we don’t know what the future is. We can work as much as we can and with as much diligence and vigilance as we can to create a positive future.

The Direct Route To Awakening with John de Ruiter (repeat) August 14, 2012 | 5:00 am

We have the capacity to go directly to truth and awakening, but we often get sidetracked by our delusions. As teacher, philosopher John de Ruiter says, “We have the capacity to use our faculties to convince ourselves of something being true, because we need for that to be true. So, there’s a hanging on within the heart supported by an intellectual framework that enables that to happen. But, beyond all of that, we know something quieter, and is that we don’t actually need what we say we need.

Clutter Busting Is More Than Cleaning Up Our Junk with Brooks Palmer August 7, 2012 | 5:00 am

We all have some clutter in our lives. Whether it’s in our drawers, closets, garages, or computers, we can all do with some letting go of possessions we no longer need. Some of us put off making decisions about our “stuff” by renting storage units–Out of sight-out of mind–Or is it really? Palmer tells us that paying for storage locker is like paying,“junk alimony.”

Intelligent Evolution with Nicki Scully July 24, 2012 | 5:00 am

Healer, Nicki Scully, tells us how it is time for us to move from healing ourselves to healing the planet. We can do this collectively by joining together in circles, in phone-bridges, and in our own personal meditations. Now is the time for us to make a quantum leap in consciousness. We must co-create this movement; we must allow spirit to come in through our hearts and minds. Scully says, “Now is the time of tremendous opportunity for people to put their hearts and minds together–If all of the individuals join in circles, and all the circles join, and we’re all focusing on planetary healing–this uniting of minds and hearts can give us a tremendous opportunity for quantum leap [in consciousness].” (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)

Beyond Humans, Widening Our Circle Of Friends with Priscilla Stuckey, Ph.D. April 30, 2013 | 5:00 am

Stuckey begins this conversation by telling three stories of how an eagle, a bougainvillea bush, and the birch tree of her childhood all communicated with her in some way. We think we are alone but Stuckey points out “we are deeply connected with all others with whom we share our lives.” She encourages us to be aware of our connection with all the life that surrounds us, even in cities. In response to the idea that the world is a community rather than a collection of objects she poses the question: “How do we interact with the more than human world as equal members of community, rather than trying to treat the world around us as if it was created only to serve human needs?”
