Encore Spiritual Practice for Crazy Times

1/20/2021
Philip Goldberg is our guest today, here to talk about his latest book, “Spiritual Practice for Crazy Times: Powerful Tools to Cultivate Calm, Clarity, and Courage.” And this is definitely the year for it! We are all hoping for an end to the pandemic in the next 6 to 8 months through the power of vaccines, but it is currently surging and there is widespread anxiety and depression regarding that, the racial problems, the on-going political divide—despite the change in leadership, the economic...

The Loneliness Remedy

1/6/2021
There’s a lot going on today in our world, indeed, some pretty scary stuff. Far too many people are either ill from the virus or trying very hard to avoid getting it. Many of us are isolated at home, or even quarantined. Many single people are desperate during this time, which because of the serious contagion of the virus, makes it all the harder to find that mate they are longing for or even hang out with friends. This period of time is exacerbating a problem already a pandemic of its own:...

Encore Beginning Again

12/30/2020
Here we are again at another new beginning. At least it is one that most of us recognize as a new beginning. The problem, however, with new beginnings is that we think we have to throw out the old to have the new. We think of it in very black and white, purist terms. But what if you knew that you didn’t have to eliminate anything to have something new? Things don’t die when new things are born. Rather things are integrated when new things are born. But what does this mean? What does it mean...

Encore Peace on Earth?

12/23/2020
When pigs fly, right? That's when we'll have peace. The reason why we don’t consider this a real possibility is not because we are inherently evil people who are striving to be good, but can’t quite pull it off. It’s because we believe we are separate from the Divine. We sit around blaming the Divine for the way things are, praying for the Divine to fix it, when we ARE the Divine! We’ve been taught that it is blasphemy to consider ourselves Divine. And this belief has built our churches to...

Integrating the Collective Shadow of America Part II

12/16/2020
So, now that we have a new President, we can clearly look back on the past 4 years and discover the collective shadow of America. That shadow has been exposed, a shadow of racism, misogyny, homophobia, fear of difference of all kind, a shadow of hate, bigotry and a shadow of a politic made of quid pro quo for money and power. And it is a shadow which has fixed an economy around destroying the earth for more money and power. It’s dark, this shadow, and long, for these atrocities have gone on...

Encore Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Untying the Strong Woman

12/2/2020
We welcome Dr. E back again to the Authentic Living show this week for the fourth time, this time to talk about her latest book, “Untie the Strong Woman.” For many years, Dr. E has been sending a message to the world that the feminine aspect of humanity is powerful, beautiful and essential. The depth of her understanding of the feminine aspect of human (both male and female ) consciousness has facilitated an increased global awareness of the essentiality of the conscious expression of this...

Encore Integrating the Collective Shadow of America

11/25/2020
The shadow of the American culture is exposed. We are reminded now that while we said we were a nation that supported every person’s equal right to the pursuit of happiness, rather, we were founded upon the death of over 50 million indigenous people and we built our nation on the backs of slaves. We’ve been a two-faced nation from the onset. And now we are beginning to see what we've only suspected before in all the darkness, the lies, the bribery, and the danger hidden beneath the veil of...

Encore Thomas Moore: A Religion of Your Own

11/18/2020
Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul, a number one New York Times bestseller, as well as 18 other award-winning books, published in 25 languages, is coming back to the Authentic Living show to tell us how we can develop a religion of our own. We are currently in an evolutionary phase with regard to what we will do with religion. And Moore posits the theory that part of this shift is caused by a loss of identification with soul. His latest book, A Religion of One’s Own, coming out in...

Caroline Myss on Intimate Conversations with the Divine

11/11/2020
Caroline Myss returns to the Authentic Living show today to talk to us about her latest book, “Intimate Conversations with the Divine: Prayer, Guidance and Grace.” The book allows us to peer into our own psyches and see both our struggles and the grace we find through prayer. Caroline has taken the risk here to allow us to see her own soul and to show us her own struggles as her prayers are flashes of her own intimacy with the Divine. Today we will discuss the depth and power of intimacy...

Encore Letting Go

11/4/2020
Just let it go! Don't we hear that all the time? But the problem is that we just can't seem to do that. We can let it go. IT has hold of us. IT controls us, for we think that we have to control IT. Letting go then, turns out to be one of the hardest things we ever do. Surrender sounds like waving a white flag and letting the IT take over. Won't it all just fall apart, our plans, our dreams, our relationships--won't they all just fall apart if we don't stay in control? But all the wise...

The Oneness in Our Division

10/21/2020
We hear it every day now on the news, see it in our social media sites, it’s literally everywhere: we are a divided nation. So divided are we that we have two different realities, or so it seems. One media gives us one form of reality and all the other medias give us an entirely different form of reality. This has made it possible for the people on both sides of the divide to call the other side liars—and absolutely believe that they are telling the truth. There is hate on either side of...

Do we really want to return to "normal"?

10/14/2020
Everyone is saying it these days, “When are we going to get back to normal?” We are suffering several different crises all at once, the pandemic, the economic crisis, the crisis related to the freshly seen revelations of abuse to persons of color and black people, the political crisis and the climate crisis. And all we can think about is going back to the way it used to be. But the way it used to be is what got us here. We got ourselves here through our denial and our bias and our...

Encore The Gift in the Darkness

9/30/2020
The pain, the fear, the horror, the loss. In all of these things we experience the devastating reality of the darkness. These things cannot be minimized. They are real and have a real impact on our lives. But is it possible that by experiencing these devastations, we are being driven to the light within us? Is it possible that the intention of the darkness is to drive us to the light within us? That doesn’t mean, as many think, that God or the gods have planned your loss, your pain, your...

The True Nature of Good and Evil

9/23/2020
There is much that is going on right now in the United States, which is impacting the entire globe, and which would make us believe that evil has surely won—that the end of goodness and hope for goodness has come. Our President is lying to us. The Majority Leader of the Senate is lying to us and betraying his own precedent. The Attorney General has changed his entire job description in order to defend the President against charges of sexual assault. The fact that so many continue to defend...

Uncertainty, Faith and Hope

9/16/2020
We are living in very uncertain times. It is very difficult in these circumstances for we cannot seem to establish a routine that can be assumed to be “normal.” Everyone is talking about what it would be like to “return to normal.” And yet we continue to face uncertainty. But is it possible that uncertainty is one of spirituality’s best tools to facilitate our growth? Is it possible that living in uncertainty forces us to have to turn to something else on which to rely? What is that...

Encore Awakening from the Darkness

9/9/2020
The collective that is the United States of America is currently experiencing a dark night of the soul—a night so dark that we fear we will never awaken from this nightmare. But like every dark night of the soul, this one has an end, which is a beginning. A beginning of a whole new version of that same collective. The dark night of the soul is meant to root out shadow material, expose it and deal with it appropriately so that we can awaken to a new reality. But we are just now in the darkest...

Encore Walking Through the Darkness

8/19/2020
The darkness has come. Not, of course, for the first time, nor will it be the last, but the question is: What do we do with this darkness? And the only true answer is that we must learn how to walk through darknesses of all kind without losing our faith. That means we must learn how to not only walk through but receive the many gifts that the darkness will ultimately give us. We are in the midst of a pandemic, an economic crisis, a crisis regarding racial discrimination and abuse, a...

Encore Ain't Necessarily So

8/5/2020
What we have heard and we’ve read in the Bible, well it ain’t necessarily so. So goes the old Porgy and Bess song. Perhaps they did not read Thomas Moore’s version, Gospel The Book of John, in which regardless of religion or atheism one discovers a deeper more meaningful spirituality hidden in the root meanings of the words used. Unfortunately, much of the work of John and others has been turned into moralistic dogma. But what we find in the root language is a more celebrative, deeply...

Encore Conscious Parenting

7/29/2020
According to Dr. Shefahli Tsabary, conscious parenting means turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head. She believes that conscious parenting shifts the epicenter of the parent-child relationship away from the traditional parent-to-child “know it all” approach, to a mutual parent-with-child relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child. With this model, instead of being merely the receiver of the parents’ psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as...
