Believe it to See it: Beliefs That Block Evolution


Believe it to See it: Beliefs That Block Evolution 
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
It is hard to ignore that the world is in a very precarious situation. Environmental crises, economic stress, and political volatility is at an all-time high. Add to that the increasing polarization of societies as they merge and clash with those seeking refuge from war torn homes, and you have a very explosive soup. Countries stagger under the burden of supporting refugees – or the cost of building a wall. There seem to be no good answers in either court.
How can we hope to evolve spiritually while surrounded by chaos? What is creating all this upheaval? There are many indications that our individual beliefs create our personal reality, but what of the beliefs of a culture? Could it be that our cultural beliefs are creating this mess? If so, what can be done to shift our cultural perspective? Can it be done in time? 
With us this hour to talk about how we can co-create a positive future is Steve Bhaerman, author of the book written with cellular biologist Bruce H. Lipton, “Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here.”   Steve is an internationally known author, humorist, and workshop leader. For over 30 years, he has written and performed as Swami Beyondananda, the "Cosmic Comic." Swami's comedy has been described both as "comedy disguised as wisdom" and "wisdom disguised as comedy."  Since 2005, Steve has written a political blog with a spiritual perspective, Notes From the Trail.

Evolving Into Oneness


Evolving Into Oneness
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Many sources indicate that, currently, we are in the process of evolving from dogma, separatism and polarization into nonduality, interconnectedness and unity. There is no denying that things are undergoing more rapid shifts and changes than ever before in recorded history. Like comparing a still photograph to a motion picture, the faster things move, the more unified they become and the more complete the story they tell, exposing ever deepening levels of truth.
What does this mean for us as individuals and as a global community? What shifts and changes will be required of us in order to keep up with the times? What effect will deeping truths have on our belief systems, relationship to life and each other?  What will we experience as we transit from duality to interconnectedness to oneness?

With us this hour to ponder these mysteries is Robert Atkinson, the author of nine books, including the 2017 Nautilus Book Award winner, “The Story of Our Time: From Duality to Interconnectedness to Oneness,” “Year of Living Deeply: A Memoir of 1969,” and “Mystic Journey: Getting to the Heart of Your Soul’s Story.” Robert is an internationally recognized authority on life story interviewing, personal mythmaking, and soul-making, he is professor emeritus at the University of Southern Maine, director of StoryCommons, and a member of the Evolutionary Leaders Circle.

Grit: Authentic Spirituality


~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
We all have our own ideas about what being spiritual looks like. Yet as we evolve, those ideas need to expand in order to encompass greater arenas. Our youth are experiencing problems that were undreamt of in times past. Just one of many examples is the addiction crisis faced by today’s young people. We clearly need spirituality with grit in order to meet the growing needs and challenges of today.
How does spirituality need to evolve in order to support our youth in destress? Where can we find the grounded, practical spirituality needed to meet our children where they are, in order to support their evolutionary path to unity and wholeness?

With us this hour to explore the spiritual challenges faced by today’s youth is Chris Grosso. Chris is a youth mental health group facilitator with Newport Academy, public speaker, writer, and author of “Indie Spiritualist,” “Everything Mind” and “Dead Set on Living.” He writes for Revolver Magazine, ORIGIN Magazine, and Huffington Post, and has spoken and performed at Wanderlust Festival, Celebrate Your Life, Yoga Journal Conference, Sedona World Wisdom Days, and more.
Chris works with people who are in the process of healing or struggling with addictions of all kinds. He speaks and leads groups in detoxes, yoga studios, rehabs, youth centers, hospitals, conferences, and festivals worldwide.
