Africa Day 2024 Beyond Borders: Unleashing Africa's Global Potential

5/23/2024
Welcome to the latest episode of Impact!, in which we take a deep dive into the profound significance, challenges and opportunities facing Africa as we mark Africa Day, celebrated this year on May 25. Join us as we explore the transformative role Africa is playing in global geopolitics, its unique opportunities, such as being resource-rich and home to a young, tech-savvy and opportunistic population, and its progress and vital role in sustaining and rebooting the global economy. We examine the successes of pan-Africanism, and especially the African Union's role in fostering unity and collaborative efforts to navigate shared hurdles like poverty, conflict, and governance issues. Suggested intention focus In keeping with the core objectives celebrated on Africa Day, the African Union believes that “we can contribute to [a] vision of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa that plays an influential role in the global arena.” Let us join them in holding that, in taking as our key focus for intention this week: We will that the governments of all African nations will continue to recognise the value of deep cooperation and commitment to their participation in the work and objectives of the African Union.

Understanding the Refugee Crisis in Lebanon

5/16/2024
In this edition of Impact!, Ellen and Clive delve into the complex and often overlooked issue of Lebanon's refugee crisis. They discuss potential focal points for healing through our intentions and prayers, including compassionate treatment of refugees, a swift international response, smart diplomacy, and peaceful resolutions to conflicts involving Hezbollah and Israel. The hosts also explore the implications of a recent pledge by the European Union to deliver €1 billion in financial aid to help counteract the crisis. Suggested intention The European Union aid package may appear generous, but it’s doubtless limited in what it can enable. Given the importance for appropriate use of this money, we suggest holding as our main focused intention this week: We will that the Lebanese government and its administrators will be guided in where to distribute and how to coordinate the funding and assistance offered by the European Union in the most equitable way to bring maximum benefit both for its own citizens and the refugees within its borders. Please join us in holding this.

The Power of the Priestesses (Part 2)–Earth Healing and Light Holding with Sabine Engelhardt

5/11/2024
In the second part of her conversation with Clive, Earth healer and retreat founder Sabine Engelhardt describes how going off grid involves getting away from romantic ideas about nature. While there's great value just being with nature, we need to get our hands dirty for our intuition to be fully reawakened. Sabine shares her fear that humanity is ill-prepared humanity for changes that are approaching, and calls for a return to simpler ways of living and honing our practical skills to face up to this. While we can’t predict timeframes for this change, we reflect on some wake-up calls that suggest that it may come much sooner than many may anticipate, and bring about a need for a radical resetting of the collective consciousness and grounding ourselves. Yet, in the spirit of free will intention, we may have considerable leeway in determining the nature of this new existence. We can energetically hold and channel the qualities we wish to see in the societies that emerge. And so it is that the work of the three crones from pre-history that first drew Sabine to Croatia remains as important today as it’s ever been.

A Deep Dive into the US Campus Protests Sparked by the Gaza Conflict

5/9/2024
In this insightful episode, we explore the recent wave of campus protests across the United States, ignited by the ongoing conflict in Gaza. We delve into student responses to the crisis, specifically looking at campuses of prestigious universities like Columbia University and Yale. We offer a neutral examination of both pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian sentiment rise on US campuses, discussing anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and Jewish students' perspectives in the context of these movements. We move beyond protest dynamics to scrutinize the underlying demands and motivations, be it calls for institutional divestment or opposition to government policies, and their relationship with the BDS movement. We also shed light on events such as the violence at UCLA, arresting of protest participants, and the resulting impact on education. This episode aims to navigate through the multiple layers of this critical global issue, in our aim to suggest concentrated prayer and intent. This in-depth episode also investigates the intricate balance strived for by university administrations and law enforcement amidst the ongoing protests. Concerns over free speech suppression and rights to peaceful assembly have intensified, along with the unsettling rise in anti-Semitism. The role of law enforcement and the restrictions imposed by university authorities, and their influence on the protest momentum, form an integral part of our discussion. We further delve into the political implications of these protests, examining President Joe Biden's carefully curated response and the increasing pressure for a firmer stance from Republican opponents. As the potential impact on Biden's reelection bid becomes increasingly complex and divisive, the political aspect of these protests intensifies. The response of universities, ranging from negotiation with activists to seeking police enforcement, is also examined. With the escalating trend in anti-Semitic and anti-Islamic hate speech, we confront challenges related to the limits of free speech while pointing out the pressing need for peaceful dialogue. We also discuss the critical role and responsibility universities have in striking a balance between protest allowance and ensuring student safety and uninterrupted education. Suggested intention Deciding what is acceptable, and in accordance with the principle of free speech and the right to protest, and what crosses the line into threatening the safety of others, incites hatred, and puts unreasonable pressure on authorities to maintain order is a difficult judgement for any free society. Given this difficulty, we suggest holding as our intention this week: We will that University presidents, trustees, and others in positions of influence will be guided in their responses to the protests on their campuses. Please join us in holding this.

The Power of the Priestesses (Part 1)–Earth Healing and Light Holding with Sabine Engelhardt

5/4/2024
In the first of an absorbing two-part conversation, Clive chats to Sabine Engelhardt, whose remarkable calling prompted her to leave her career in architecture to discover a sacred cave on the Croatian island of Brač, and to found a unique retreat center that honours our connection with the Earth and our innate but often forgotten ability to sense and work with Her energies. An inspiring leader of what it means to truly tune into the energies that unite us and which we impact, as we hear in this episode, Sabine’s off-grid life has been strongly empowered through her connection with the Divine Feminine.

Vaccinating the World

5/2/2024
In this special episode, as we approach the end of World Immunisation Week, we take a special look at how the world is performing in terms of vaccinating its people. This month also marks the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI), which was created by the World Health Assembly with the aim of vaccinating all children against diphtheria, measles, pertussis, polio, tetanus, tuberculosis, and smallpox, the only human disease ever eradicated. There’s much to celebrate, although warnings and challenges too that need our prayers and focus for sending intention. Suggested intention While there has been significant progress in the 50 years since the UN’s drive toward immunizing all against preventable diseases, with the continued need for all countries of the world to co-operate in funding and supporting vaccination rollout, we suggest holding as our focused intention this week: We will that all governments will be moved to recognise the priority for enabling and promoting vaccination against preventable diseases for all people who are governed by them. Please join us in holding this.

How to be Mindful when Bad Things Happen–Brother Dave

4/26/2024
This week Ellen talks to Zen teacher Brother Dave Kenneally, aka the Marine Monk, whose practice and study as an ordinand in the tradition of the late Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh’s Order of Interbeing spans more than twenty years. Brother Dave and Ellen talk about how to respond to hearing bad news in a mindful way, the exhaustion of near constant exposure to news that many of us experience in the modern world, and the importance of directing energy inward as well as outwardly looking for solutions to problems. How can we stay in touch with our deepest intentions? How can we truly care for ourselves as well as for others? How can we become more aware of a false sense of urgency? How can we be kept beware of being incoherent when we merely react to hearing a story in the news? How can we reverse the tendency to be more outward than inward focused in our attention, and in turn, show up more powerfully in the world? Brother Dave offers reflections on these and many more questions in this inspiring conversation. Thich Nhat Hanh said, “peace in oneself, peace in the world." Brother Dave explains how we can each make this our practice, offering many words of wisdom in ways that relate to being in the world. He also reflects on his own experiences of how easy or otherwise practising mindfulness while living in a monastry is compared to living in the world and the constant external stimuli it presents. Brother Dave’s answer may surprise you!

Unraveling the Conflict Between Armenia and Azerbaijan

4/24/2024
Join hosts Ellen Benz and Clive Johnson as they delve into the roots of the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, exploring the history, on-going tensions, and geopolitical intricacies of the long-standing conflict between the two former Soviet states. The countries’ principal dispute concerns the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, a mountainous and heavily forested area in the Karabakh region of the southern Caucasus mountain range. Ellen and Clive look at the background, go behind the reasons for the conflict, and assess where our prayers and intentions are needed now as a very fragile peace appears to be holding between the two countries. As is customary, Ellen and Clive close the episode by assessing where our prayers and intentions are needed now. Suggested intention While there have been some positive developments towards a potential peace deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the situation remains volatile, with unresolved territorial disputes and border tensions threatening to derail progress. The potential for further conflict remains strong if underlying issues are not adequately addressed. Given this tense situation, we suggest holding as our focused intention this week: We will that those in positions of influence and power within the Armenian and Azerbaijan governments will be moved in with compassion to work toward and maintain peace between their nations.

Global Healing Response: Our Connection and Responsibility Towards Earth

4/11/2024
In this special episode, as Global Healing Response moves its attention from water to Earth and as Earth Day approaches, we take a look at our vital dependency on and responsibility for caring for the element called earth – the hard, solid constituent of our planet that includes rocks, the soil, sands, and the great, shifting tectonic plates that move imperceptibly below our feet. Earth includes all the minerals we use to build our homes and create the things that we consider necessary for our lives. It includes sources of fuel such as coal. We might extend our definition to include products that start as solids, but have been made into gas, oil, and the myriad chemicals that are the building blocks for life. When we think about the Earth, we might think about standing on firm ground, having a place where we can root ourselves, and most critically of all, the place we call home. Climate change and the effects of plastic pollution are key topics in our conversation. Earth Day, a global initiative intended to motivate conservation of our planet, this year stresses the dire need for significant reduction of plastic production. Research findings from Curtin University serve as the groundwork of our reflection on the damage extreme heat and drought inflict on Australia's soil and its potential failure to achieve COP climate objectives. We also emphasize the notable link between global peace and soil health, brought to public attention by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at the World Economic Forum conference in Davos earlier this year. We explore the surprising statistics of sand exploitation and ponder the dilemmas plaguing renewable energy production. This thought-provoking episode sheds light on humanity's often detrimental impact on the planet and the importance of mindfulness towards our actions and their environmental repercussions. We wrap up with straightforward, everyday actions each of us can commit to, saving our planet and underlining the power of collective action to surmount environmental challenges. Tune into this compelling episode and take part in our mission to heal our planet. Earth Day is 22 April 2024. Suggested intention As we reflect upon humans’ varying ability to exploit Earths minerals in damaging or beneficial ways, we suggest holding as our focused intention this week: We will that scientists, environmentalists, governments, and all who have influence will be inspired to discover and promote projects that benefit rather than harm life on Earth.

Focused Intentions–Tajiks in Russia, ISIS-K and Backlash to the Crocus City Hall Attack

4/4/2024
In this special deep dive, we take a look at the rise in xenophobia against Tajik nationals living in Russia following the attack on the Crocus City Hall in Moscow last month. We explore the reasons why Tajiks have been linked with the jihadist group ISIS-K, and the prevalence of discrimination against ethnic groups in Russia both before and after the concert hall attack. We learn how the lives of millions of migrants living and working in Russia have been affected following the attack. Suggested intention As discrimination against Tajik nationals following the Crocus City Hall attack has the potential to exacerbate and kindle new waves of violence, we suggest holding for our intention this week: We will that Russian citizens see that the majority of migrant workers in their country are peaceful, loving and trying to provide for their families.

May The Fourth Be With You–World Labyrinth Day 2024 Preview with Carmel Stabley and Ellen Bintz

3/18/2024
As this year’s World Labyrinth Day approaches, Ellen catches up with Carmel Stabley, Vice President of Community and Regional Representative Co-ordinator for The Labyrinth Society. Carmel gives a fascinating outline of the history and purpose of this annual event and focus for global intention holding, including a 24-hour marathon that took place at the time the COVID lockdown kept most of us holed up at home, and shares the beautiful intention behind the invitation on this day to “walk as one at one” all around the world while holding an intention for peace. Carmel and Ellen (who when she isn't presenting this podcast and among many other roles, is also co-ordinator of World Labyrinth Day) talk about how intention setting has become an important part of an event that now regularly brings thousands of people together on one day as the world turns from as far afield as New Zealand and Hawaii. The wave of peace that circles our world might perhaps this year be more potent still by the fact that World Labyrinth Day falls on May 4th. As any good Jedi might say, “Come walk–And may the Fourth be with you!” World Labyrinth Day this year is on 4 May 2024.

Prayer and Intention Briefing (Deep Dive)–Haiti

3/13/2024
Today, as violence continues in the small Caribbean nation of Haiti and its Prime Minister Ariel Henry announces that he will step down from office, we take a deep dive to understand the history, circumstances and politics that have brought about the rise of criminal gangs in the country and led to deep opposition to Henry's government. As we broaden our understanding, we suggest specific topics that we might home in on in our intentions and prayers. Look out for our regular digest of world news and our suggestions for intercession and intention, which will be dropping later this week.

David Ash–Science and the Supernatural (Part 1)

3/13/2024
We’re thrilled to welcome back David Ash, visionary physicist and prolific author, to probe into how the concept of superenergy may help explain supernatural phenomena.
