What the Bleep and other Surprises

This rumination on surprise comes courtesy of William Arntz, the creator and producer who surprised, confounded and delighted with his remarkable film What the Bleep Do We Know!? Now he teams with his wife, internationally renowned spiritual teacher and poet Deirdre Hade and award-winning photographer Endre Balogh to create something else quite special.

The (not so) Little Book of Surprises is anchored with Hade’s visionary and lyrical poetry skipping lightly about over the stunning images curated by Balogh. Each breathtaking page creates an emotional resonance with the reader…using surprise as the doorway to transformation and transcendence. The images in the book are part eye candy/part soul candy. They pile on a sensory experience that mounts the sense of surprise page by page.

All of the book’s creators began life in different fields-Arntz as a laser physicist working on “Star Wars” high energy lasers; Hade as a ballet dancer and choreographer, Balogh continues as an internationally regarded concert violinist. And through life’s mystery and surprise, they emerged as something else entirely, which makes them imminently qualified to bring forth a meditation in print on the gifts of surprise.   For more information please visit: www.BookOfSurprises.com

Our greatest hits of 2016 features Coach Jerry Lynch

Let Them Play by Jerry Lynch is a pertinent must-read for parents with children involved in athletics.

Jerry reminds us that it’s the child’s game – not the parents’. And though we cannot protect our children from loss, what we can show them, and possibly learn along with them, is that failure is one of our greatest teachers.

This episode with Jerry is full of wonderful advice and hard-won wisdom. His book is receiving fantastic reviews in an era where school, performance, and athletics is a high-stakes, high-pressure game.

Jerry Lynch, sports psychologist and consultant, is the author of, “Let Them Play which provides an antidote to parental over-involvement in sports.  Few parents want to undermine their children’s athletic enjoyment and performance but that’s what they do when they fight with referees, yell at coaches, and lash out at fellow parents.

Jerry diagnoses this epidemic of parental over-involvement behavior as an attachment of their own egos to their kids’ performance.  The result is often kids losing interest in sports.

Dr. Lynch offers an alternative: parents participate by empowering their athletic kids and expertly addressing the child who doesn’t “make the cut.” Learn how to talk with coaches, detach from results, and help kids both work to excel and learn from failure.

As parents and coaches adopt Lynch’s core principles, kids are freed to do their best and, most importantly, feel their best.

Your Brave New Mind with Dr. Elliott Maynard

Elliott Maynard believes his new master paradigm [Future Science Technology] is the quantum-field science for the future. He is convinced that integrating traditional, linear science with non-linear consciousness technology will yield new breakthrough solutions for the global problems we face as citizens of Planet Earth. Future Science Technology is a unique system which supports the development of a new and superior human mind – a master paradigm containing 25 keys to personal and planetary enlightenment.

A couple of topics we wish to discuss:

·         How we can embrace this new science that bridges conventional and alternative sciences to bring out the best of both worlds? Dr. Maynard highlights the creation of “win-win” scenarios in all aspects of life, but has evolved this concept into what he refers to as “Win-win to the X-power.”

·         How do we create an educational system that prepares our youth to operate effectively in the present and future realities?

Dr. Maynard presents his new educational system: “The University of the Future.”  He has invented an entirely new paradigm format, which – unlike linear paradigms of the past – is flexible and timeless. “Even the turtle will not get ahead unless he sticks his neck out.”

Cultivating an Open Heart: Valentines Day special with Robert V. Taylor

Robert V. Taylor joins us for a Valentines Day Special to help us cultivate an open heart.  We will focus on love that goes far beyond the romantic realm. Diving deeply into his story, Robert’s anti-apartheid work led him to refuse to be drafted into the South Africa Military which was compulsory for all white males.  Such a refusal comes with life imprisonment! Faced with the label of being a “traitor” or a “collaborator” he knew he could not accept that apartheid was “the will of God.” “I went to see Archbishop Desmond Tutu for advice on how to survive imprisonment. Instead, he told me that I would not go to jail, but that he would arrange for me to leave the country.” 10 days later Robert arrived in New York City and began graduate work that deepened his life’s calling to help people experience a oneness with others grounded in compassion, love and mercy.  Robert is President of the New York based Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation and lives on a rural farm in the Pacific Northwest. He has dedicated his life to helping individuals and organizations live beyond their limitations. He challenges leaders to live beyond the fears and self-assessments that hold them hostage. Robert is the voice of a generation empowered by the potential of living beyond the restrictions of labels. He is passionate about helping people find a deeper connection to themselves and the world at large. Author of A New Way to Be Human, Robert shares his own struggles and global journeys as an example of what is possible when we all live beyond labels.
