When the purpose of self-development (or spiritual growth) is to ensure we never have anger or make another mistake again, we are headed for disappointment.
Elese hosts and reflects with listeners on the true purpose of change.

Ami Chen Mills interviews me on the story of my life and spiritual journey through Christian Science, A Course in Miracles, to The Three Principles and my most recent realizations.  And my Mom calls in!

Elese talks with Ami Chen Mills-Naim of the Center For Sustainable Change about the Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought and how they work in daily life. A great show on how 'abstract' principles play out in our relationships and our lives and how our awareness of them makes a difference.
Dedicated with love and appreciation to the significant others in our lives.
The art of inner leadership is what Hiro Boga teaches. For her, the metaphysical is downright practical business, and our sovereignty lives in the choices that we make in the day-to-day.

Hiro Boga and I explore the way you cultivate a relationship with your own potentiality, the radical notion that we are already safe, and how to rule your own inner world.

Peter Fenner and I explore 'Radiant Mind' - unconditioned awareness in which nothing is needed and nothing needs to be taken away.

You actually can feel during the show how Buddhist nondual wisdom can integrate naturally with the complexities of daily commitments.  I love that Peter talks about

* the anti-frantic environment
* how to stop making a problem out of having problems
* why we get stuck when we think there is more to know than we know right now
* why we don't have to make anything better

Peter helps us understand how to be in the 'experience of unconditioned awareness' which allows painful thoughts and feelings to dissolve.

Over 38 years Peter has distilled the essence of traditions like Zen, Dzogchen and the Buddhist Middle Way, and adapted them to suit our post-modern culture.
He teaches worldwide and  has written extensively on Buddhist nondual traditions, including his latest book: Radiant Mind: Awakening Unconditional Awareness.

Don't miss his 9-month Radiant Mind Course in Vancouver BC, May 7, 2010 - Feb 20, 2011

Actually the show was called "Tasting Liberation with Big Mind and Genpo Roshi".  My goodness, we certainly did that and much, much more. 

Roshi takes me through the paces, live on air, demonstrating the lastest 'spiritual technology' and his newest addition to the Big Mind Process since his book Big Mind Big Heart was published in 2007. 

An amazing guest and an amazing show!
