Streetsmarts and Spirituality

Unfortunately, many of us are trying desperately to avoid having to really participate in the experience of living here on this planet, through many different means. In so doing we miss the growth experience—something our guest today calls “Earth School.” She tells us that our emotions are leading us back to earth school—where we will learn more about life, about ourselves and about spirituality. Carol Kline is far from unfamiliar with radio and TV having served as a reporter and TV and radio anchor both in Japan and in America, even receiving awards as the top female anchor in her area. Today she has her own radio show and she facilitates workshops and offers life coaching and has authored the book “Streetwise Spirituality: 28 Days to Inner Fitness & Everyday Enlightenment,” the subject of our discussion today. Sometimes our spiritual teachings are so ethereal that we can’t get grounded. Today, we are going to get grounded. Don’t miss it.

Being You?

There is so much said today about “being yourself” that we get really confused about who that really is. We bat around the word “hardwired” when we speak of being ourselves, as if we are more or less doomed to repeat this same dysfunctional patterns in our lives.

He tells us that a new science is emerging that empowers us to create the reality we choose. Not only that, he tells us that we can move from the old habituated me, to the real self. Today he’ll provide us with a few tools we can apply in order to make those changes necessary to creating our own lives. You are not going to want to miss this one.

A Special Encore Performance with Marianne Williamson

We are so excited this week to have Marianne Williamson on the Authentic Living Show to talk to us about her latest NY Times Bestseller, A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever. Most of us already know several of Marianne’s other books, including
The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America and The Gift of Change, for as Time Magazine puts it, “Yoga, the Cabala and Marianne Williamson have been taken up by those seeking a relationship with God that is not strictly tethered to Christianity.” We also know that thousands of books have been published on weight loss. But none of these books can offer the permanent plan offered in A Course in Weight Loss. Nor do they offer the powerful lessons in transformational surrender that this book clarifies so well. This could be a life-changing discussion today—don’t let yourself miss it!

Fried?

Are you feeling emotionally and physically exhausted and cynical? Burnout looks a lot like depression, but it’s not a biological bogeyman that medication or simple stress management can cure. It’s a disorder of hope and will that sucks the life out of competent, idealistic, hardworking people like you; and it will be an ongoing challenge for you to take your power back! Dr. Joan Borysenko is here for the fourth time and this time to talk about her latest book, “Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive.” Her view of burn out is a timely and groundbreaking work that straddles psychology, biology and soul. Of course, we know from previous episodes with Joan, that she offers a very warm and personal approach to whatever she does and this book and this discussion will be no exception, as she believes it is her life’s purpose to weave together psychology, biology and spirituality in a credible and accessible way.

Conscious Parenting

According to Dr. Shefahli Tsabary, conscious parenting means turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head. She believes that conscious parenting shifts the epicenter of the parent-child relationship away from the traditional parent-to-child “know it all” approach, to a mutual parent-with-child relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child. With this model, instead of being merely the receiver of the parents’ psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parent’s transformational development. In the traditional model, while parents are trying to lead and mold their children they are also unwittingly passing on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional shallowness. But with Tsabary’s model children serve as mirrors of the parent’s forgotten self, so that both parent and child help each other to be more authentic. You do not want to miss this enlightening and empowering discussion on conscious parenting.

Inspiration Deficit?

Sometimes what’s going on just has the capacity to deflate us, doesn’t it? We lose our inspiration to just keep on keeping on. Well, today we are going to be talking to Dr. Jonathan Ellerby, coming back to the show for a second time today to teach us how to be inspired or re-inspired. This is not your crack-of-dawn rise and shine speech; nor is it your rah-rah motivational sales pitch. No, this is real inspiration. Inspiration that comes from the inside out. As he describes it, it is a “no-pill prescription to end high stress, low energy and bad habits.” Jonathan Ellerby has traveled the world to study with the masters of more than 40 different spiritual traditions, and has worked as a healer, teacher and consultant to both groups and individuals. He is the author of the book, and the subject of our discussion to today, “Inspiration Deficit Disorder,” and several others. So, if you are feeling less than inspired—don’t you dare miss this show.

What are we going to do about guilt?

Joan Borysenko is back this week for the third time to talk with us about guilt, for guilt can be a major block to our resilience factor. Her latest book, “It’s Not the End of the World: Developing Resilience in Times of Change” will be combined with one of her earlier books, “Guilt is the Teacher, Love is the Lesson” in an in-depth discussion of this devilish master craftsman of our lives. In the extreme, many of us live whole lifetimes driven by guilt and responsibility for other people’s stuff. But most of us worry over guilt at least some of the time. It works us over and compels us at times to do things that are not only unnecessary but often come down to downright interference with other people’s lives. And it eats at us from the inside out, through that niggling little voice that just won’t seem to let go until we finally give into it. Well this week, we are going to help it let go. Don’t miss this important discussion.
