Owning Our Dreams Is An Ultimate Long Game with Jonas Koffler

Free Listening Through February 21, 2017: Keep listening while you browse! Click on the Pop out player button, above on the right. It’s absurd that we’d prioritize owning the hottest new device, a cool car, or a trendy toy over owning a dream that makes us feel most alive and most engaged. Our dream may be waking up in the morning to do some kind of work that excites us, a calling we must do. Or, it might be having the ability to work remotely and choose the working hours that align with our natural schedule. It could be to

The Sacred Geometry Of Our Cells with Sondra Barrett, Ph.D.

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. Sondra 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

Reclaiming Wonder and Hope with Hank Wesselman, Ph.D.

Wesselman encourages us to move beyond “hand-me-down” beliefs and religions. Instead he invites us to co-create with spirit and follow a path of direct experience of the sacred. Our collective plunge down the steep slope of progress has come at the cost of a deep, intuitive connection with nature and our authentic spiritual selves. This has resulted in a collective and profound disenchantment of life. Wesselman recollects several poignant memories of personal times of enchantment. He shares with us the meaning and origins of the Native American Ghost Dance, which is a “reaching back into the past to connect with

The Eternal and Infinite Nature of the Self with Rupert Spira

This teacher of non-dualism sheds light on the essential teachings of what is known as “the direct path.” Almost everybody believes that whatever it is we are seeing is something that is outside ourselves. This leads to a most vexing question for science: How is consciousness derived from the brain? No neurologist or brain surgeon has ever found consciousness in the brain. Spira tells us, “The non-dual traditions, in general, suggest that consciousness is not derived from the brain. It’s not a product of matter. In the non-dual traditions consciousness is the primary and fundamental reality. Everything is derived from

The Transformative Path of Divine Love with Will Keepin, Ph.D.

Keepin states that the essence of God resides in the heart; this supreme reality is deeply personal. His work as both a scientist and a seeker of spiritual wisdom reveals that we are witnessing the birth of a vast, unified worldview that unites and cross-fertilizes East and West, modern and indigenous, human and nonhuman, contemporary and ancient – leading us toward a deep collective realization of a seamless oneness of existence as revealed in a universal path of Divine Love. His studies have led him to realize that this universal path of Divine Love, has the “power to take us

Bringing Unconditional Love To Ourselves with Robyn Posin, Ph.D.

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? Robyn 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

Finding A God That Is Real with Nancy Ellen Abrams, J.D.

In this deep dialogue we look at a new theory of God based on science. Our guest suggests that we need a God that can connect us spiritually to the “real” universe and can guide our now globally conscious species toward a long-term and honorable civilization. Abrams says, “God, as I see it, is our bridge to the universe. God did not create the universe but God created the meaning of the universe. God is an emergent phenomenon from us human beings. It has come about because of our aspirations; every person has aspirations. Our aspirations over generations and generations, maybe

The Redemptive Power Of A Near Death Experience with Rajiv Parti, M.D.

As a young man in India, wanting to escape the rigors of medical school, Rajiv Parti fled to an ashram in the Himalayas. He told the head monk that he wanted to become a monk. The guru laughed and told him he was not ready. Parti was given a spiritual initiation and sent back home. He then went on to became a medical doctor and thirty years later and half a world away in Southern California, he fled his life once more, this time at the behest of a Being of Light, two angels, and a truly profound mystical exploration,

Helping Teenagers to Find Their Inner Guide with Kelly and Tom Shelstad

Adolescence is a time of great ferment and change. When messages abound that tell a young person they are not enough, they tend to concentrate their energies on being prettier, smarter, or more popular. What does this leave out? Kelly and Tom Shelstad offer wilderness programs and other activities that have proven to be of help to young people and their families as they traverse the treacherous waters from childhood to adulthood in a way that supports self-esteem and self-knowledge. Each wilderness experience includes a built-in “purposeful challenge” of alone time. This is a time without the “normal” distractions of
