From Loss Through Recovery to Evolution


From Loss Through Recovery to Evolution
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
If there is one thing that is universally feared, it is loss. Loss of income, a home, a relationship, or a loved one is very traumatic for any of us. At the same time, loss is a constant in life where everything is subject to continuous change.
Everything has purpose. The key to finding it is in transforming the experience into something positive.

Is it possible to recover from loss and use it to become more than we were before? How can we not only recover, but move beyond suffering and tap into the evolutionary power of loss?

With us this hour to delve into loss, recovery and transformation is Jeannie Seeley-Smith, author of  Nine Friends In Time Of Loss.”  For nearly 38 years, Jeannie has served as CEO of Perspectives. She is the founder of Minnesota’s largest therapeutic supportive housing program for homeless/recovering women and their children. 
Jeannie ensures the implementation of the agency’s mission and vision, its relevance to the community, and its accountability to its diverse constituents. She is also responsible for implementing best practices through a multi-disciplinary team of professionals to ensure families return to permanent housing.

Environmental and Health Care Crisis: Irrevocably Broken?


Environmental and Health Care Crisis: Irrevocably Broken?
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Health and environment are among the most dire crises we face today. Not surprisingly, they are interrelated – interwoven to the point that it is difficult to see where one ends and the other begins.

As humans, we have fouled our own nest – the earth – until, predictably, we have poisoned ourselves in the process. Not only echo systems, but just when we need them most, health care systems are rapidly failing. Clearly our current approach to both is unsustainable.

Can we turn this around, or has it gone too far to be corrected – irrevocably broken?
What will it take to clean up and protect the planet and our health? How can we as individuals become part of the solution rather than part of the problem?

With us this hour to ponder these very pressing problems is J. T. Madicus. JT is an American entrepreneur, educator, author, and producer. Through his books, films, and businesses, he advocates modern solutions to the problems facing our world, particularly in the fields of healthcare, education, and sustainability.
