    Integrating Healing Traditions with Lewis Mehl-Madrona and David Kopacz

    Integrating Healing Traditions with Lewis Mehl-Madrona and David Kopacz

    Native Americans in professional healing professions may creatively incorporate Native ways in their work, but the path is not easy. The same is true for those coming from a Western background that realize there is something lacking in modern medicine and are attracted to Native ways of healing. Western and Native approaches to healing may seem incompatible—linear-mechanical, biological or genetic causes versus interdependent, community and natural world imbalances—but there is a way to integrate them, to see and walk in two worlds. Not easily and not without pushback perhaps, but there is a way. Our two guests, one Native, one non-Native, have both been powerfully influenced and transformed by Indigenous wisdom and also other ways of knowing and have done the work to integrate and implement a more holistic vision of medicine. Join us as we explore how to integrate healing traditions on the next Circle for Original Thinking podcast.

    Time, Space, and Consciousness: A New Science of Life After Death (PART II)

    Time, Space, and Consciousness: A New Science of Life After Death (PART II)

    EPISODE Part 2:
    The renowned physicist and philosopher David Bohm once said, “The great strength of science is that it is rooted in actual experience. The great weakness of contemporary science is that it admits only certain types of experience as legitimate.” Life after death, or the survival of post-mortem consciousness, is one of the areas modern science has tended to shun despite the fact that there is a mountain of evidence that supports it. The volume of evidence is indisputable, from over 1700 solved reincarnation cases, plus countless other examples of out of body experiences, messages received in dreams, and much more, including so-called near death experiences (which are often after clinical death has been noted).

    The evidence is there, so the question becomes: “Why do we not believe it? “ Is it because it upends our current paradigm based on the notion of a fundamentally material universe and consciousness being an epiphenomenon of matter? Or is it because our understanding of time, space, and consciousness is too limited? Our two guests think it is both – and fortunately, Jeffrey Mishlove and Leo Ruickbie, are willing, and able, to stretch the scientific paradigm to a broader vision. Mishlove and Ruickbie are the newly awarded Grand Prize and 3rd place winner of the Robert Bigelow Institute for Consciousness Studies essay contest that asked for hard evidence beyond a reasonable doubt for the existence of the afterlife. Join us as they share some of that evidence with you today, and more, as we explore a new science of life after death.

    The Spiritual Path: Benefits and Pitfalls with Dan Millman and Ronald L Boyer

    The Spiritual Path: Benefits and Pitfalls with Dan Millman and Ronald L Boyer

    With the advent of the nuclear age, Western science reached the pinnacle of invention, but lacked a critical understanding of its underlying wisdom or purpose. Carl Jung framed the problem as “modern man in search of a soul.” When the Western mind turned outward, searching for what was missing, it first turned to the East. A trickle of Eastern gurus soon became a flood, and by the late 1960s, all sorts of gurus, roshis, rinpoches, and other teachers were promising some form of mastery of life - if only one followed their path. Many Americans embarked upon this quest for spirituality, mostly in California, and later across the nation. Our guests, Dan Millman and Ron Boyer, were at the forefront of the California movement. They not only embraced Eastern wisdom; they took an active part in remaking Western psychology–at the time mired in psychoanalysis and behaviorism–into a humanistic “third force” of psychology that expanded the discipline to include religion, spirituality, and self-actualization. Along the way, they discovered not only the benefits, but also the pitfalls, of embarking on a spiritual path. This is their story.

    "The Bear is My Father" with Reginah Waterspirit and Tim Amsden

    "The Bear is My Father" with Reginah Waterspirit and Tim Amsden

    The Bear is My Father: The Wisdom of a Muscogee Creek Elder Marcellus Bear Heart Williams
    Marcellus Bear Heart Williams is what I call a living ancestor. A living ancestor is a person whose wisdom has not departed, but instead taken up residence in the hearts of those who loved him, and even perhaps in those that never met him – someone like myself. Living ancestors are not deceased, as in inert or forgotten. Their energy has not been destroyed; their spirit and work in the world is ongoing. Join us as we invite into the conversation the spirit of Bear Heart, his wife, Reginah Waterspirit, and Tim Amsden, the editor of the newly released book on Synergetic Press, The Bear is My Father, the brilliant companion piece to The Wind is My Mother, that came out in 1996.

    "A Theory on Almost Anything" with Nancy Rhodes, John David Ernest, and Roger Jeff Cunningham

    "A Theory on Almost Anything" with Nancy Rhodes, John David Ernest, and Roger Jeff Cunningham

    If all the world’s a stage, and men and women are merely players, what can an artistic director of opera, a musical composer, and an educational designer and therapist tell us about how life is or should be? As it turns out, a lot.

    On this edition of the Circle for Original Thinking, we go behind the curtain to get a glimpse what it takes to get an opera company up and running, the artistic process, the place of art, music, and psychology in our lives. We delve into the artistic minds behind The Theory of Everything, an original opera commissioned by the Encompass Opera company. We explore why opera moves us; how a composer and librettist work together, the intersection of leading edge science and Indigenous ways of knowing, and more. What can contemporary opera reveal about the state of modern society? How can it change minds, hearts, and values? To find out, join Nancy Rhodes, John David Ernest, and Roger Jeff Cunningham on the next edition of Circle for Original Thinking.
