WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT: It seems like every day we learn something new about the universe, with incredible pictures of distant stars, strange nebulae, or colliding galaxies that dazzle astronomers. If we take a bird's-eye view on the subject of cosmology, what is being revealed about the universe we live in...
Here’s a great example of one woman’s artistic expression of the new cosmology. I first met Betty-Ann at a retreat about the new cosmology with Dr. Brian Swimme in California in 1999. Her playful wit and intense curiosity about the nature of the universe are beautifully presented in her new book called “Great Ball of Fire! A Poetic Telling of the Universe Story” (Mearth Press, 2010). I was recently able to speak with her about this newly published epic poem, as well as inquire about her inspiration and her thoughts about cosmology...
"We Are All Connected" was made from sampling Carl Sagan's Cosmos, The History Channel's Universe series, Richard Feynman's 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson's cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye's Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking's Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more. It is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Does Reiki offer practical, energetic relief from stress? How does a Reiki session work? What are some additional benefits available from the practice of Reiki? In this program, Torrance CitiCable interviews Lucia Galante Johnson, CEO and founder of the Reiki Center in Torrance, CA. Lucia relates how Reiki transformed her life's work from the corporate world to creating a safe space to teach and share this traditional form of Japanese energy work. Lucia, associate practitioners and students share the flow of a session and provide insights into what the Reiki experience "is."

Rick Hanson, Phd
Hello, All Things Healing. Eden Kozlowski here. Today I am chatting it up with a pioneer in the field of mindfulness and meditation… Rick Hanson, PhD.
First a quick note before we let him “come in”… Dr. Hanson went to UCLA at age 16 and graduated summa cum laude in 1974, which is the same year he started practicing meditation. This is just the beginning of the list of the achievements for this gentleman. Dr. Hanson… Rick, how are you today?...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Dr. Hanson is a true mindfulness pioneer. His studies and work allow this practice to be more embraced and understood from a rational perspective. Listen or read on.
Editor's Note:A movie was made about his "unique" style of practicing medicine. Patch gives his take on modern allopathic medicine and how their is so much more to medicine that just seeing an MD. He is well known for his colorful outfits and bringing laughter to healing.

Phil Kent is my new landlord here in beautiful Killcare, on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia. Phil was a builder before he retired and leaving the building trade has enabled him to spend more time on his painting. Like most people I know who are involved in art, Phil doesn’t fit the stereotype of the mad artist.
