So what are the real issues that help to foster the environmental concerns that all of us are faced with? Author Lee Van Ham in his new book entitled “From Egos to Eden” has identified what I personally believe are the biggest issues.
As a nation and society, we live as if we have a Multi Earth filled with resources for constant consumption. We don’t understand that we need to start living as a society and nation as if we were inhabiting One-Earth and reduce our consumption of resources so that future generations can inhabit our earth and still have the necessary resources, as well as clean air, water, and soil that will be able to be farmed and produce nutritious crops.
As Lee writes ” The changes Earth is making in this 21st century exceed anything we’ve known in 12,000 years. The ecological crises she’s undergoing mean that by 2100 CE she will not longer be home for millions of species, and our species is the primary reason for their extinction. If you are at all interested in learning about the shift in our mindset about how we live in harmony with mother earth, then I encourage you to listen to my interview with author Lee Van Ham about his book “From Egos to Eden“.
I also encourage you to check out another of Lee’s books entitled “Blinded by Progress“. You can reach Lee by visiting his website by clicking here, or on Facebook by clicking here. I hope you enjoy this lively interview with a wonderful author and leader in the ecological movement.
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing author William Keepin. His book entitled “Belonging to God, Science, Spirituality and a Universal Path of Divine Love” addresses the religious disparities with the intent of finding a common ground between all religions which is that of divine love.
In our lively interview together Will explains that “There is a profound need today for people to understand how the religious traditions relate to one another, what they have in common, and how their remarkable difference are dwarfed by their even more remarkable common ground. In Wills book he explores divine love in Christianity, Islam and Hinduism as exemplified through the scriptures and writing of leading mystics from these traditions–that presents a glorious universal path of love that is illuminated equally by modern science and ancient wisdom.

My good friend Jan Phillips and her co-author Ruth Westreich joined me for this podcast interview about their new book entitled “Creativity Unzipped-Why Your Thoughts Matter“. In my interview with both Jan and Ruth we discuss we discussed how creative blocks are the biggest challenge that any artists, entrepreneur , author or creative person faces.
Jan states “we are hardwired to find creative solutions to complex problems, but there’s a problem with our software–inherited beliefs and cultural conditioning”. How we develop our beliefs and hold on to them does more to stifle our creativity that almost anything.
This book is different, the message is that you already know everything you need to know to be fully expressed, creative agent. Jan quotes Meister Eckhart, the German mystic, and he says that the process of enlightenment is one of subtraction, not addition. To become luminous, we must let go of the darkness, let go of our negative beliefs–luminous is a natural state.
As we proceed in the act of creation, the litmus test is always about authenticity. It is about your voice, your soul, your story coming through this peace. The idea or seed your cultivating has surfaced for a purpose and awaits the originality only you can bring to it.
If you are attempting to tap into your creativity, then I recommend that you read “Creativity Unzipped“. Jan & Ruth take the reader on a journey that explores the reason for your creative blocks, and provides you with way to tap back into the creative genius that lurks within.

I always enjoy my interview with author Matthew Fox. His writing is thoughtful and insightful. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Matthew for his new book entitled ” A Way To God-Thomas Merton’s Creation Spirituality Journey“.
In our interview together we discuss the life and teaching of Thomas Merton. This book creates a methodology for understanding the vast and deep contributions that Merton made to the history of spirituality by demonstrating his teaching by way of the Four Paths of Creation.
Those four paths are: Via Positiva–the path to delight, joy awe and wonder. Via Negativa–the path of Silence and emptying the mind; grief and suffering and nothingness and the apophatic divinity. Via Creativa– is the experience of God through creativity, and Via Transformativa–is the experience of God via justice-making and compassion, the way of the prophet.
I hope you will join Matthew Fox and myself for an exploration into the writing and teaching of Thomas Merton. Enjoy this great interview with one of the best read authors on the life and times of Thomas Merton as we discuss his new book “A Way to God“.

Are you interested in learning how to be your most authentic-self? Author Polly Campbell in her new book “How to Live an Awesome Life” provides the reader with an opportunity to see the world through a lens of awareness and engagement. Polly will admit that life is messy, but if we learn how to focus on the beauty and the energy of awe our lives would be filled with more joy, happiness and fulfillment.
Polly is encouraging the reader to look at the world with wonder and amazement for this forces us to adjust our mental models. To live with mystery and uncertainty, but when living life this way we will grow our spiritual perspective and open to the possibilities.
Psychologist Paul Pearsall calls awe or eleventh emotion and and described it as “overwhelming and bewildering sense of connection with a startling universe that is usually far beyond the narrow band of our consciousness.”

I have come full circle with author Glenn Aparicio Parry. Recently his publicists reached out to me about doing an interview with Glenn, what she did not know is that Glenn and I had previously been affiliated when Glenn was involved in as the director of the SEED Gratitude Institute in Albuquerque, NM. I just love how the Universe works in bringing people back into your life, just at the right time.
Glenn has written a new book entitled “Original Thinking-A Radical ReVisioning of Time, Humanity and Nature“. In my interview with Glenn we explore the deep inner realms of our thinking. How can we reconnect with all the natural ecological and spiritual ways to help restore our world to wholeness? In other words is our linear and rational thinking at the root cause of our current degradation of our society? If so how as a species can we reconnect with our “nature”.
As Glenn states “The origin of thinking is thanking. Original thinking is thinking that begins in wholeness, in gratitude for all there is. Thinking that begins in wholeness remains in wholeness, even if ti employs abstract thought for limited purposes. We are always in relationship with the whole.” If you want to further explore how our thinking is at the center of so much of the dilemma we face as a society, then you won’t want to miss a minute of my interview with Glenn Aparicio Parry the author of “Original Thinking”
