We Need an Upgrade in Consciousness

“Never before on the planet has our future been so uncertain. Humanity is actually living in a state of consciousness that is desperately requiring an upgrade. So the most important conversation we could possibly be involved in together today is how can we evolve from what we’ve accepted as normal to what our hearts know is our potential… There’s so much knowledge and wisdom available but it requires a very special talent to be able to bring the knowledge out. “Justine Willis Toms is one such person. When she interviewed me she came with pages and pages of notes. She’d

The Hospitality of Understanding

I’m always amazed when I’m with someone who knows how to ask genuinely compelling questions—the kind of questions that can be of true service. We’ve all had moments of being with friends who are going through a bad patch and we want to be of help, but we don’t know how. We might plunge in and tell them what they could or should do to make things better. And, if we are paying attention, as this most well-meaning advice is given we will witness a glaze come over our friend’s face as they thank us and hurry to change the

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

Spotlight: The Good News: The Universe is Alive and Interconnected

Biologist Elisabet Sahtouris says “Life gets creative in a time of crisis.” Philosopher and cosmologist Thomas Berry tells us, “If we can’t see the stars at night, it’s not just pollution or toxicity of the planet, it’s a loss of our soul, our imagination, of the experience of what it is to be a human being.” Another cosmologist Brian Swimme suggests that a new story of the universe may come to serve the modern world as primitive myths served in their time, embracing modern scientific knowledge as well as ancient spiritual concepts. And professor of natural philosophy, Paul Davies, stimulates

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.

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

The Public Purpose Of Art with Arlene Goldbard

We’re on the cusp of a paradigm shift, a radical change in worldview that will thrust art and culture onto center stage. What does that mean? How will the world be different? What is the rising spirit of the times and how is it being expressed in art? Arlene Goldbard says, “I have this overwhelming image of energy gathering force and taking shape.” She likens this force to a wave and says, “No one masterminds a wave, ordering all the drops of water into line. Many independent forces operate simultaneously – wind, gravity, disturbances of all kinds – and somehow, the wave mounts.” In
