An Evolutionary Crisis Leads to An Evolutionary Birth with Carolyn Baker
Without a doubt the exploding global crisis of climate chaos is disrupting the social, political, and economic structures of global culture. Humanity is poised on a threshold that could be described as a global dark night of the soul. This global crisis is not asking us to simply “make things better” or invent new ways of living. It’s demanding that we surrender to a transformation so radical that we become a new variety of the human species. In this deep dialogue we explore an effective path forward as we take on the challenge for a new humanity to emerge from these turbulent times.Read More

What Wild Horses Have to Teach Us with Carolyn Resnick
Here we explore how horses can be true partners as valuable teachers and healers in our journey for self-healing, personal growth, and transformation. They can show us powerful lessons in how to be effective leaders. You’ll be surprised by what Resnick reveals about the secrets of how a horse becomes and maintains its leadership of a herd of wild horses. Horses’ extensive language and communication skills are a matter of survival and they do it without words. What makes a good leader in a stallion of a herd of wild horses can be used for human leadership as well. It does not lead by coercion or waging battles. It creates unity, harmony, and respect including the personal space of others. It actually leads from behind and has to do with knowing when to serve the community and when to best serve the individual. She talks of the different ways we need to treat different personalities in horses. A dominant horse has a fear-based attitude so we must earn their trust. A lead mare easily makes connections with other horses. We humans can learn a lot from horses from the non-verbal communication of horses.Read More

Reality May Not Be What We Perceive with Our Senses with Howard Eisenberg, M.D.
Quantum physics has shown that we, most likely, are living in a “consensual reality” and that our senses are reporting back to us only a very small portion of the greater reality. In this deep dialogue we discuss how the brain selectively filters our perception of reality through our personal histories, our beliefs, habits of mind, and our prejudices. It highlights the question of what is consciousness and where is it formed.Read More

The “Narrative Intelligence” of the Greek Myths with Carol S. Pearson, Ph.D.
Most of us are trapped in the stories we tell ourselves; they guide what we pay attention to. When we expand that story, our possibilities increase. Archetypes, such as found in the Greek myths, can help us identify and change a debilitating tale into a powerful one that shifts our perspective and changes what we are noticing. This can enhance our narrative intelligence and encourage us to tap into our potential. Pearson says, “Archetypal stories are not ordinary ones; they are more powerful than everyday stories because they’re carrying the energy of a human potential.” She retells the stories of four powerful Greek Gods and Goddesses, Demeter, Persephone, Zeus, and Dionysus, and how each can trigger a new personal story that helps us notice the opportunities, the props, and the characters that may have been invisible to us before.

Exploring the Multidimensional Universe of Alien Encounters
Program Number: 3779
Are we alone? Are we being influenced by nonhuman intelligences? Do UFOs, near-death experiences, and alien abductions exist? Are we in a battle between Good and Evil and is our future as a civilization at stake? Are there more than one species of aliens contacting humans? Have aliens been around for thousands of years? Here an avid researcher has brought reports of many studies that have been done with thousands of people who have experienced the phenomenon of alien contact. When asked if nonhuman intelligence is real Gober says, “There is a lot of research out there suggesting that we are not alone, and this is probably an ancient phenomenon. There are people who do seem to have pretty amazing encounters.” (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
