Psychic Or Psychotic?
Some people are so psychic/intuitive it's scary. I'm always in wonder that we can actually be given higher gifts that have a great impact on our lives and others. Jonna Rae Bartges is an extreme example of someone who was born to see and hear things that most of us can't imagine. Her journey with these gifts has been dynamic, valuable and troubling for her. Her book, Psychic or Psychotic, offers a fascinating read of her amazing gifts and the difficulties of living with them. She is a joy to talk with and her intelligence (Emmy winning TV producer) and insights make this an intriguing and thoughtful interview.
Healing Our Addictions
Although it's important to identify our addictions, it's even more important to heal them. This is a difficult but possible journey that generally needs a lot of support. In this continuing series on addiction I'm again interviewing the Chupka family who have written a book "It Went Without Saying" about their journey with their own and a family member's addiction. They have wonderful insights about what can and cannot be done to help ourselves and others.
What is consciousness - really?
Consciousness has become a very big word in our normal lexicon so I'm interviewing an author and professor of consciousness studies Christian de Quincey. His books are "Radical Knowing", "Radical Nature" and "Consciousness from Zombies to Angels" and he teaches at John F. Kennedy University, the University of Philosophical Research and The Wisdom Academy. This is all about the nature of consciousness, what it is and how we best work with it. You'll be fascinated by this show.
