    Tim Phillips - A World Beyond Conflict

    Tim Phillips has been involved in conflict resolution on an international scale since the 80s when he began organizing trips for media to El Salvador.  In this episode Tim talks about his learnings from working alongside Nelson Mandela and other leaders in South Africa, the experience of physical and religious divisions in Northern Ireland and how his global experience translates to the current conflicts we see in deeply partisan and white supremacist America.  Tim's insights on how we're more similar than we are led to believe and his perspective on healing with our emotional first and mental intelligence second provide powerful frameworks for how we progress conflict to resolution.

Personal Experiences & Perspectives of Love

This is an inspiring radio talked about personal experience and their perspective of love. The most fascinating of the radio is each episode gives a unique interpretation of love and relative subject throughout a peaceful and engaging conversation. I am looking to forward more opportunity for people to share their definition of love and perspective.

Beautiful

I love listening to these podcasts when I’m working out or doing yoga. Ethan has so many different and amazing people come onto the show and it’s really something to hear what everyone has to say about love. Everyone has a unique perspective on love, but they also have a lot of thoughts that other people before them have shared and I think it’s beautiful that there are so many universally shared aspects of love.
