Rabbi Rami Shapiro, an award winning story teller, author, poet and essayist as well as the Director of the Simply Jewish Foundation is our guest today. He is the author of several spiritual nonfiction books, one of which, “The Divine Feminine: In Biblical Wisdom Literature” is the topic of our discussion today. The connotations we generally attribute to the words “feminine” and “masculine” blur the central meanings of the authentic feminine and masculine in all of us. Today we will focus on the Divine feminine as the voice of wisdom within which can provide each of us with a path to inner healing and authenticity. Tune in to find out how you can access the true voice of your wise man or woman and your own inner healer.

Dr. Raymond Moody, pioneer and world renowned expert on the near-death-experience, is our guest today as we explore how those who have experienced a near-death have responded with greater authenticity to life, indeed, have awakened to life on a whole new dimension. Dr. Moody is the best-selling author of eleven books, including Life After Life, which sold over 13 million copies worldwide, as well as Reunions. He has also published numerous articles in academic and professional literature. As Dr. Moody has learned more from those who have passed over and come back to inform us of what they now know, he has begun to provide philosophical counseling and workshops on the subjects of death, grief and near-death. Moody’s work offers the world an entirely new paradigm not only about death, but about life as well, particularly authentic life. Understanding death can help us all to understand life.

Authenticity does not usually occur in a one time epiphany. Most often we have to coax it along by recognizing, listening to and honoring its voice. One way to do that is to work with a Life Coach. And today we are interviewing Life Coach and author, Salle Redfield. Two of Salle’s works, a CD and a book, are meditations based on her husband James Redfield’s work The Celestine Prophecy. She has also written The Joy of Meditating with an accompanying CD and Creating a Life of Joy, also with a CD by the same title. Salle began Life Coaching as an outgrowth of her own journey to authenticity. As a Life Coach, she helps her clients to focus on their truest passions and follow them.

Three weeks ago we discussed the psychological components of the masks and costumes we wear that keep us out of touch with the Authentic Self. This week we will discuss the Authentic Self as a spiritual entity with greater power than that of the ego or false self. We attribute a lot of power to the ego, even giving it the supernatural power of “the devil that made me do it.” But the truth is even more impossible than that! The ego is meant to be a negotiator between the external and the internal. What happens too often is that instead, it becomes an identity—or a mask and costume. But, can it really be true that a mask and costume could be more powerful than the Authenticity hidden beneath it? And yet, we give it the reigns, without noticing the number of times we say things like, “I was out of control,” “I just couldn’t help it,” “I had no choice,” and “It just happened.” Listen to this show and learn of the truly profound power that is actually yours every single day.
Mary Bea Sullivan, author of “Dancing Naked Under the Moon,” a personal account of her own spiritual journey, is our guest today. Mary Bea’s compelling journey took her to teachers from diverse traditions to assist her in landing squarely in her own wisdom. Through her own spiritual dark night of the soul, beginning at the death of a dear friend, her quest is one example of how we both demand and resist crises that bring us past the veil and into the inner sanctum of authenticity. The American Institute of Holistic Theology, offering Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral Degrees in Holistic Theology, presents this dialogue, meant to offer a guide to listeners seeking an affirmative approach to the Divine that doesn’t necessarily fit within the construct of any particular dogma or creed. Do we actually get to decide who God is on our own? Actually, if we don’t we never really know God. The only way to have a real relationship with a real God is to be real. Don’t miss this show!
Andrea Mathews is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a National Certified Counselor, a Counseling Supervisor and an Approved Provider of Continuing Education Credits for Counselors, a Reiki Master and an astrological counselor, trained in metaphysical pastoral counseling, whose primary intent is to assist others in becoming aware of and living the Authentic Self.

Using story, metaphor, poetry, art, the work of changing beliefs and learning to utilize the messages inherent in the emotions and body, the work of restoring the soul brings individuals to an entirely new paradigm for the Self. With this show your host intends to help listeners understand and exercise that new paradigm and to experience life as the challenge of joy and peace. Don’t miss this “how to” show!
In the past 12 years Neale Donald Walsch has impacted spiritual evolution worldwide with an amazing and lengthy public Conversation with God. Through that process, one which has included at least 23 books, and several video and audio programs, he has set the spiritual world on fire. But Walsch is not without his own personal trials, including a fire that destroyed all of his belongings, the break-up of his marriage, a car accident that left him with a broken neck, and finally a period of homelessness and near starvation. Yet an openness to experience and an authentic search brought Walsch to his own personal and profound awakening, which has served to raise the consciousness of and even disturb the rest of the world.
Andrea will interview Walsch on this week’s Authentic Living episode, to discuss the journey to authenticity that is the very nature of the soul. Don’t miss it!
How did we come to this place in our collective psychology in which we value image more than authenticity? What do we fear our bodies can do to us—in terms of our social value? Are other people’s images of us so very important that we will kill ourselves to maintain a higher image in their eyes? How did they get to be more important than we are? Our guest today has lived through and overcome her own body image issues and now lives a happy and fulfilling life. In her book, “Love Your Body, Love Your Life, Sarah Maria outlines a five-step process designed to help people break free from Negative Body Obsession and discover the beauty that they already have inside of them. From there, they can learn to create the life and the body they want. Don’t miss this important opportunity to learn how to put an end to body image issues.
