The Courage to Wake Up


The Courage to Wake Up
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
We can’t hope to evolve into our future potential without looking at the truth of the present. Yet waking up to the truth takes courage. With climate change, loss of species, and current lifestyles environmentally unsustainable, our present circumstances can be painful to face.
Illusions are dying as the naked truth emerges. We have been a pushy species. Through artificial means, we have pushed the soil to produce more food, the animals to produce more milk, and meat, the ocean to give more fish, and so on. We have pushed so hard and so long, we’ve pushed ourselves right out of the circle of life to the point that life may no longer be able to sustain us.
The tide of change is upon us. Clearly, we need to look at the present circumstance and use what has not worked as a model for evolving into a better way of being. But where can we find guidance when all the rules are shifting? What will sustain us as we weather planetary change? How can we find the integrity to assist a process that may virtually destroy our old way of being?

Our guest this hour has spent much time contemplating the situation and hopefully will have some guidance for us. Kathleen Dean Moore is a philosopher and climate activist, the author or coeditor of a dozen books, including “Riverwalking,” “Holdfast,” and “Wild Comfort.” Until recently a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Oregon State University, her concern for the reeling world led her to leave the university in order to speak out and write about climate action. Her new books are “Moral Ground,” “Great Tide Rising,” and “Piano Tide,” a novel.

Male Female Balance: A Key to Evolution


Male Female Balance: A Key to Evolution
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
The differences, and potential synergy, amongst men and women is a fascinating topic. When men and women honor their differences, blending their skills and viewpoints, true magic happens. The same is true of the male/female balance and co-operation within each individual.

As we move into an age supporting unity, never has it been more important to find the balance between the genders, within and without, in order to embrace our potential as individuals and as a race.

Yet, we are currently far from that balance, and some of the inequities are quite surprising. In past years, there has been much attention on women’s equal rights, and strides have been made in that direction.

As the pendulum swings from polarization against female equality, we now find ourselves unwittingly polarized against male equality. Some laws actually put our men at an extreme disadvantage, in a position to be exploited and abused with no recourse.

With us this hour to help unearth the hidden inequity, and explore male/female balance and synergy, is the author of “Daughters of Feminism,” David Shackleton. David is a thinker and writer on gender and psychological growth. He served as editor and publisher of Canada’s gender equalism magazine, “Everyman: A Men’s Journal.” David has also organized annual conferences across Canada. His original models of gender co-dependence and psychological growth have formed the foundation of numerous self-discovery workshops and events.

Reclaim Your Life: Transform Your Future


Reclaim Your Life: Transform Your Future
~ Gwilda Wiyaka ~
Who are you?

Seems like a simple enough question to answer – until we consider all that is standing between us and our true expression. We actually live through a false identity based on birth order, gender, race, religion, physical appearance, marital status, education, occupation, and the expectations of others. In addition, we carry a lifetime of damage, resulting in guilt, shame, coping mechanisms, defenses and denials. All considered, our self-perception is distorted at best.

How can we clear the way for our true nature to shine through? What is our potential when we are free to live from authentic soul expression, rather than using all our energy to run the aforementioned programs?

So I ask again…Who are you…really?

With us this hour to delve into the shadows of false identity is Resilience Expert Michelle Nagel. Michelle guides successful people who are tired of being all  things to all people all the time, helping them to take off their protective armor so they can set boundaries, care for themselves without feeling guilty, be who they really are, and live the lives of their dreams without apology. The author of the best-selling book, “Suffering is Optional: Step Out of Darkness Into the Light,” and coauthor of the international bestseller, “The Light at the End of the Funnel,” Michelle has been teaching, coaching, and inspiring clients and audiences to make soul shifts that change the upward possibilities in their lives, while living within their divine power and joy.
