These program offerings begin with the most famous Christmas tale of all, Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. Cusumano revisions it as keys to a spiritual rebirth. We also offer a program about the joys of photography with renowned photographer David Ulrich. He says of photography, The more we become attentive to what’s outside of us, the more we are becoming aware of our own reactions and responses. I think when it comes to people, it naturally engenders greater empathy.” These programs are followed by cosmologist Jude Currivan sharing why physics matters in our daily lives. And the final program is with Buddhist teacher Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel talking about the continued genesis of appearance and experience. Her shorthand for this is “everything leans.”

Beginning with her experience of psychic phenomena from early childhood, Currivan was led on a quest of a life-long exploration of the nature of reality. Her research has come to show that information is as real as anything we call physical reality. Here we explore the reality of informational physics and why this matters in our daily lives. Jude Currivan is the author of The Cosmic Hologram: In-formation at the Center of Creation. Read more »

Buddhist teacher Namgyel points out that “everything leans.” She frames this statement with the reminder, “[W]e live in a world where ‘it all depends’ and everything is influencing everything else. We might think we know something at one moment but everything is always interrupting and influencing and so it’s always changing. Life, as we know it, is very dynamic.”  Read more »
