030515March 5, 2015 Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha (fourth appearance) “In The Presence of Truth”

Listen to Program.

Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha – In The Presence of Truth – Discovering the Being Within.

From the deep experience of his own Self-Realization, Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha describes the process of Awakening like a roadmap, allowing anyone to journey through the process of the discovery of the Self. Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha, when he was 16, met his Spiritual Teacher, His Holiness the Lord Hamsah Manarah–Himself initiated by some of the greatest Sages on Earth–and from that time has been progressively prepared to continue His Mission and lead His Spiritual Community. After the Mahasamadhi of his Guru in 1998, Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha retired from a successful career as a health practitioner and created a spiritual community in Canada, at the foothills of the Rockies, where he dedicates himself to the service of humanity, guiding spiritual seekers who come from all parts of the world and all walks of life.

 

In The Presence of Truth – Discovering the Being Within

ghnmainpageIn this book, his first in English, Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha provides the essence of his transformative teaching. In a world of certainties, he states, you have accepted so many things to be true, and yet this is the very cause of your misery. Accept nothing as true except what you yourself experience. Who are you? What is the true purpose of your life? What prevents you from living in a state of absolute balance and inner joy, which is not only attainable by anyone but is your very nature? Gurudev Hamsah Nandatha teaches Universal Spirituality, that all religions have value and that the awakening of our true consciousness is the path of light to evolution, and a higher state of being.

January 6, 2015 Episode One (I) The Best Is Yet To Come (long-term broadcast series)

multi-player010615January 6, 2015 The Best Is Yet To Come (long-term broadcast series)

A new broadcast series bringing insights into the human condition and society, offered through the work of the same name by Author Lesli Moore Dahlke and Transitional Strategist, Broadcast, Historian and Writer David William Gibbons. The series will also through panels celebrate projects, individuals and groups offering extraordinary contributions to society.

Lesli Moore Dahlke

Life and Work

Lesli Moore Dahlke is a Southern Californian native. Being a native is a rarity for most “Californians,” who frequently come from other places in the country. But, proudly, she was born and raised in the bright beautiful Golden State. Lesli describes herself as a lucky child of the 50’s greatly loved by her parents. It was a time of innocence, a time when life was as gentle as a warm breeze. It was a time of growing up during the halcyon days. She was raised in the San Fernando Valley, one of the original vast booming post-World War II suburbs of Los Angeles. Lesli grew up in the shadows of tinsel-town’s glamour, its glitter and the glory days of Hollywood. Her father, Del Moore, was a noted and successful television and movie actor. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from California State University, Northridge. Her degree was as a practitioner of Television and Film Production. Lesli’s secondary emphasis was on the written word of journalism. As her career began, she pursued a successful career in Television Media Production. Her credits include commercial film production, and numerous areas of television production, including producing live sports programming. Lesli was the Supervising Associate Producer for the award-winning documentary, “The Eisenhower Years,” for The Discovery Channel, as well as for PBS Network programming. She also supervised the production of PBS Telecourses, the front-runner to today’s on-line universities. Lesli headed the production staff that produced the first cable series for the Playboy Channel and various other ventures. She was a long time writer to the former Salem-News.com on-line newspaper as an Environmental Contributor. Lesli now is a contributing writer for The City of Hope and is completing her second book, Every Day Is a Gift. Although her industry experiences were vast, challenging, and never routine, the most personal challenging experiences were yet to come.

Lesli Moore Dahlke – 1970

Lesli was diagnosed with three virulent cancers caused by exposure to the carcinogenic Agent Orange while traveling with the USO, as an innocent 18-year old girl, in a war-torn Vietnam. As of this date, she lives daily with two rare and active cancers attributed to Agent Orange exposure.

The Best Is Yet To Come!

Her life and story is explored and shared in the profound book The Best Is Yet To Come (published 2012) “I never miss a moment of this beautiful life. I am always filling my heart with the vivid colors, textures, and glorious memories, that make up the unique tapestry of this wonderful journey we call life!”

David William Gibbons

David William Gibbons is a transitional media strategist (Culture, Social, Human Performance and Democracy) and best known for the creation of deep ethereal dialogue, broadcast widely across the transitory and fast evolving technologies existing at the beginning of the 21st Century. His work in the humanities began at a fundamental level with the 14 days journeys across America and the United Kingdom in 2004 and 2005. During this period he found an emerging and transformational personal gift of human connection, in concert with the creation of profound photography and film. Later, at a revolutionary changing point in his life, an understanding developed in pairing historical context with human connection dynamics. This was defined and developed during 2009, through the personal exploration and extensive research of deep discussion and narrative in audio and video mediums. This period also marked a time of introspection and intense hardships through which he traveled, until such time as the platform upon which his material resides found its mark. The programming and rich dialogue have since developed and advanced to where an extensive and powerful legacy now exists. Today, these dialogues continue to expand based upon the transformation of a challenged planet. Distinguished individuals and groups from all over the world have participated in deep conversations, the latter of which are charted through international panels on the well respected Crossing over the Bridge series. The most notable of these include the late Dr. Brian O’Leary Astronaut and Author, with whom he recorded over 28 hours of dialogue and engaged in hundred’s of hours of personal conversations outside of the regular broadcasting schedule. A close friendship and mutual respect developed between the two individuals heavily reflected and resonating in the work that they created together. Dr. Brian O’Leary passed in July 2011. It is considered in many circles, that the material created between the two individuals represents the greatest body of conversations currently known to be in existence during Dr. O’Leary’s life. His work continues with an underscore of quiet discernment, deliberating upon wide spread issues of which free energy and evolving conscious human behavior define the backbone of a core and determined mission. Through an open and ever deepening form of dialogue, the views of people and realities continue to build upon his long believed view that this current time reflects this “the generation of all generations.”

He is in talks with Harvard University Press and Routledge about publishing it as a book.

Recreating humanity: a thought experiment in the philosophy of education

The MetaIntegral Foundation has provided some support for this project, which will creatively transform some 200 pages of previously published material into a book on the philosophy of education and a critique of educational technology.

Schooling in Late-Capitalist America (with Hans Despain)

Hans Despain and Stein address issues in contemporary education from the perspective of Dialectal Critical Realism and Integral Theory.

Evolutionary love: towards an new image of humanity (with Marc Gafni)

Working with Rabbi Marc Gafni, they address philosophical issues in evolutionary theory and advance an emancipatory metatheory of evolution, best described as acosmic humanism. This is a new image of humanity’s place in the universe and an ontology of the concrete singular individual, or the Unique Self. This book is being written with the Support of the Center for Integral Wisdom.

December 7, 2014 Life and Works of Peter Russell M.A., D.C.S., F.S.P.

pr#1Peter Russell M.A., D.C.S, F.S.P.

Radio Streaming Broadcast: Sunday Omnibus December 7, 2014

Peter Russell is a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest.

At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation.

He also has a post-graduate degree in computer science, and conducted there some of the early work on 3-dimensional displays, presaging by some twenty years the advent of virtual reality.

In the 1970s, he was one of the first people to introduce human potential seminars into the corporate field, and for twenty years ran programs for senior management on creativity, stress management, personal development, and sustainable development. Clients have included IBM, Apple, Digital, American Express, Barclays Bank, Swedish Telecom, ICI, Shell Oil and British Petroleum.

In 1982 he coined the term “global brain” with his 1980s bestseller of the same name in which he predicted the Internet and the impact it would have. The Global Brain

His other books in include — The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Creative Manager, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God.

As one of the more revolutionary futurists Peter Russell has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences, in Europe, Japan and the USA. His multi-image shows and videos, The Global Brain and The White Hole in Time have won praise and prizes from around the world. In 1993 the environmental magazine Buzzworm voted Peter Russell “Eco-Philosopher Extraordinaire” of the year.

His principal interest is the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. His work seeks to distill the essence of the world’s spiritual traditions and present it in ways relevant to the current times.

The Global Brain

pr#2Originally published in 1982 as “The Awakening Earth” in the UK and “The Global Brain” in the US, this third edition of Peter Russell’s classic work has been updated and a new Foreword added. Building on Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis, it shows how our global linking may be leading us toward an evolutionary breakthrough as significant as the emergence of life some three and a half million years ago. Heralded as a major leap in Western thinking, this book presents an empowering view of our future. It throws new light on our relationship with ourselves, each other, and the planet.

 

 

 

From Science to God

pr#3From Science to God is the story of Peter Russell’s lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness. Blending physics, psychology, and philosophy, he leads us to a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. He shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; nothing new needs to be discovered. We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges.

Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics — one in which science and spirit no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light. From Science to God invites us to cross that bridge to a radically different, and ultimately healing, view of ourselves and the universe — one in which God takes on new meaning, and spiritual practice a deeper significance.

JamesRedfieldJames Redfield was 43 when he published The Celestine Prophecy. He has been keenly interested in human spirituality all of his life. Born on March 19, 1950, he grew up in a rural area near Birmingham, Alabama. From an early age, he was motivated by a need for clarity about spiritual matters. Brought up in a Methodist Church that was loving and community-oriented, he was nevertheless frustrated by a lack of answers to his questions about the true nature of spiritual experience.
As a young man, he studied Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen, while majoring in sociology at Auburn University. He later received a Master’s degree in counseling and spent more than 15 years as a therapist to abused adolescents. During this time, he was drawn into the human potential movement and turned to it for theories about intuitions and psychic phenomena that would help his troubled clients. All along, Redfield was forming ideas that would eventually find their way into The Celestine Prophecy. In 1989, he quit his job as a therapist to write full-time, synthesizing his interest in interactive psychology, Eastern and Western philosophies, science, futurism, ecology, and history.

cpUsing an adventure parable approach that has been called “part Indiana Jones, part Scott Peck,” The Celestine Prophecy created a model for spiritual perception and actualization that resonated with millions of people and focused on the mysterious coincidences that occur in each of our lives. Disdaining the spotlight himself, Redfield proclaimed in The Celestine Prophecy that each of us must intuit his own spiritual destiny.

As he writes in The Celestine Vision, his non-fiction title published in 1997, “The actual writing of The Celestine Prophecy occurred from January 1989 through April 1991 and was characterized by a sort of trial-and-error process. Quite amazingly, as I remembered earlier experiences and wrote about them, lacing them into an adventure tale, striking coincidences would occur to emphasize the particular points I wanted to make. Books would show up mysteriously, or I would have timely encounters with the exact sort of individuals I was attempting to describe. Sometimes strangers would open up to me for no apparent reason and tell me about their spiritual experiences.”

After the self-published book was brought to the attention of Warner Books through a perceptive sales rep, Warner Books bought the rights and published the hard cover edition in March 1994. The book quickly climbed to the #1 position on the New York Times bestsellers list. It remained on that list for more than three years, joined by The Tenth Insight, which built upon the Nine Insights revealed in the first novel. The two books spent a combined 74 weeks on the New York Times list, making James Redfield the best-selling hard cover author in the world in 1996, as cited in BP Report (January 1997).

In October 1997, James Redfield was awarded the highly prestigious Medal of the Presidency of the Italian Senate at the XXIII Pio Manzu International Conference in Rimini, Italy. Pio Manzu is a nongovernmental arm of the United Nations headed up by Mikhail Gorbachev.

Scott Tips JD

stnhf052714Scott Tips received his Bachelor of Arts degree, magna cum laude, from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1976, studied at the Sorbonne (Paris I) from 1976-1977, and obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) in 1980, where he was the Managing Editor of the California Law Review. A California-licensed attorney, he was admitted to the California Bar in 1980 and has specialized in food-and-drug law and trademark law, but also engages in business litigation, general business law, and nonprofit organizations, with an international clientele. Since 1989, Mr. Tips has been the General Counsel for the National Health Federation, the World’s oldest health-freedom organization for consumers. In 2007, Mr. Tips became NHF President, and has been a speaker for the organization on several continents.

A legal columnist, he writes a monthly column for Whole Foods Magazine called “Legal Tips,” a column he started in 1984. Currently, Mr. Tips is occupying much of his time with health-freedom issues involving the Codex Alimentarius Commission and its and other attempts to limit individual freedom of choice in health matters. In that capacity, he has recently compiled, edited, and published a book on the subject entitled Codex Alimentarius – Global Food Imperialism. He also attends Codex meetings worldwide and has attended more Codex meetings than any other health-freedom activist.
