According to Bill Martin, author of The Activist's Tao Te Ching: Ancient Wisdom for a Modern Revolution, the word revolution means "turning over or returning." When we use force we are counterproductive—we fight against something that fights against us. Activism is alive and well: this kind starts with quiet and responsible disengagement so we can then engage in our natural virtue that will heal our planet and ourselves.

To Dean Sluyter, author of Natural Meditation, anyone can meditate, at any time, and during any circumstance. The key is effortlessness. Beverly says, "Whatever we think, say, and do can help Activate the Power of Yes." Dean suggests that we Un-think, UN-say, and UN-do; and it's easy to see how that can be the core of deep meditation. If you're thinking to yourself, "I've already tried meditation," stop thinking and stop trying. That's a good first step!

How do we aspire to PEACE NOW when all around us there is evidence to the contrary? Rev. Barbara Leger founded Temenos Center for Spiritual Living in Ukraine and Crimea about 14 years ago, so we can only imagine the changes she and her practitioners have seen. Tackling issues surrounding war and peace, the practitioners have chosen PEACE—one practitioner, one board member, one friend, family member, or community leader at a time.

On paper, Hannah Papp appeared to be fulfilling her dreams ... with a graduate degree and a job in Budapest. Embittered by love and disillusioned with her life, she set off on a solitary backpacking trek across Western Europe. She discovered the more important part of herself as mystical events unfolded and significant people appeared on her path. You can have your own mystical journey. Gather the thorns and roses from each day and find out the messages you are learning. Sounds mysterious,...

The title of Franz Wizner’s book is Honeymoon With My Brother. Can you guess the NO he received? That’s right, he was jilted before the wedding, just after the guests started arriving and the catered food was ready to go. Then he got fired. Ouch. Franz took his brother to the honeymoon destination rather than waste the reservation money for the trip. That’s where the real adventure of his life began! With no more to lose, they sold what they had and the two took off for a two-year...

Winning a stay in a villa in Tuscany would seem like a dream come true for most of us, but for Joy Goodman, getting there was a fear-filled challenge from the beginning. Could she go alone? How would she survive in a strange country? What if she got lost and no one would help? Joy learned lessons about trust, opportunity, free-fall, and free flight during her journey into the unknown. What a ‘joy’ that letting go and letting loose is available to all of us, no matter what challenges we...

Jason Hamacher was a drummer in several punk rock bands that had a positive message. Setting out to write heavy metal music to old Christian chants, Jason was surprised to learn that precious little had been done to preserve the ancient prayers, hallowed rituals, and sacred music of Syria’s religious minority communities. Beginning nearly 10 years ago, he began his travels to Aleppo, Syria, and has been working on several preservation projects through Smithsonian Folkways, Yale Institute...

Ron Chapman has spent 30 years fine-tuning his meditation skills; and if you haven’t been doing that, this is a great show for you. He points out how beginning with simple meditation practices can produce ‘metanoya”—a profound change of heart. Breath work is also helpful for tending to those unattended sorrows, illuminating the darkness that is in our hearts and minds, and moving from a feeling of emptiness to wholeness of the heart. To find out more about his books, services, and...

Patrice Vecchione was a New York City kid and a long-distance bicyclist who didn’t really discover nature until she was 50 years old. From her home in California, she began to branch out and discovered the park land was close to where she lived. Her book reminds you, “Nature accepts us exactly as we are—bedazzled or bedraggled, lonely or lively, willful or wistful. Wander a little while, and wonder will take hold.” Earth Day is April 22. Listen to this show and get your heart,...

Grieving is not a linear process. Sometimes everything crashes in at once; sometimes there is a feeling of grace; sometimes you just don’t know what to think or do. Chaz Wesley is a grief expert and host of From Grief to Grace on Unity Online Radio. He says the grief journey really begins when we can accept that the loss is real. Then we experience the pain. The New Normal is where we learn how to move on and live fully, even in the absence of what we lost. Chaz describes his own grief...

How do you survive a maximum security psychiatric/medical facility with inmates who have nothing to lose and guards who have one answer to everything: NO. Fleet Maull dug deep into his Buddhist training to find some kind of contemplative calm and ended up founding the Prison Mindfulness Institute, Path of Freedom, and National Prison Hospice Association. You’ve never heard prison and possibility described so clearly. This is a man who is changing the world because he first changed...

Dr. Elliott Maynard is a futurist, global ecologist, sculptor, musician, underwater photographer, and documentary film producer, so it seems we could be intimidated by a Renaissance man talking about Brave New Mind: Living in a Future-Science World. On the contrary, this mind-bending conversation causes us to stretch and realize all things are possible. The statement that can change your life and your attitude can be heard twice in the show. Have a listen and leap into quantum thought!

Widowhood can happen anytime. Take it from Carole Brody Fleet, who became a young widow with a 9-year-old daughter in 1998. Widowhood doesn’t just happen to older women. That’s why she wrote Widows Wear Stilettos five years after she lost her husband. She says that, while there are different ways of becoming a widow and different reactions to it, there are four ways that can help us live happily ‘even’ after. For more information about Carole and her programs that serve the widowed...
