Francis Lucille is a spiritual teacher of the tradition of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality). He became a disciple of Jean Klein, a French Advaita teacher whom he met in 1975.

This was the beginning of a close association that lasted until the death of his friend and spiritual master in 1998. Jean Klein’s own guru, “Panditji” Rao, whom he met in India in the nineteen-fifties, was a college professor in Bangalore who taught Sanskrit and belonged to a lineage of traditional Advaita Vedanta teachers. http://www.francislucille.com.

Can you imagine waking up one day and experience a force—the Tao—opening up to you? You may have been intrigued by Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now or admired Neale Walsch’s ability to have conversations with God.

Along the Tao, you will be able to experience both by allowing yourself to be synchronized with the flow of the universe. You will learn that every meeting with someone is a holy encounter and that all problems and opportunities that come your way are presents hand-delivered by the Tao just for you. There is no faith required to connect with the Tao; just be willing to experience life with a new perspective. Expect many changes in your life with the Tao as your coach, specifically:

. Let your subconscious agenda and internal conflicts be revealed to you
. Channel your energies in a new, purposeful direction
. Learn to be guided by synchronicity
. Be the Law of Attraction
. Discover the Christian power of positive thinking
. Flourish in the every professional setting by embracing the power of the 4 Cs:
creativity, communication, connectivity, and caring
. Realize the love, peace, and security of the Psalm 23 traveler yourself
. Experience life as a fairy tale
. Start your journey toward wholeness
. Live your life as a magnificent experiment

Each day, we have the opportunity to awaken to the larger world, the natural world, those around us, and our own goals. Grasping this opportunity can be challenging, but it is possible.

Information overload, lack of time, and an inability to connect with essential spiritual teachings conspire to make our journey to consciousness daunting. In this revised edition of Awakening, pre-eminent spiritual teacher Shakti Gawain offers gentle daily guidance for that journey.

A classic book of days, Awakening is organized around the calendar year and the seasons, using themes and approaches suitable for each day. Each of the 365 entries is clear and simple, consisting of a topic heading, a short message, and an affirmation or question. Through these short pieces, Shakti shows readers how to recognize and release old patterns and beliefs and how to open to new and nurturing approaches to all areas of their lives. Equal parts affirmation and stimulation, these daily doses of wisdom put readers on the path to greater awareness of their own sense of spiritual truth.

Shakti Gawain on Living a Conscious Life

New World Library cofounder and bestselling author Shakti Gawain talks about New World Library’s 35-years in the publishing business, the 25th Anniversary Edition of LIVING IN THE LIGHT, and her personal adventures on the path of consciousness.

What exactly is enlightenment and how can this state of awareness be achieved without struggle? These are the most important questions that members of the New-Age movement currently face and this is the book which answers them.
As the mind-body-spirit consciousness that has emerged from the New-Age movement begins to permeate mainstream awareness, it sends out a plea: that this movement examines, and accepts, the limitations of its present practices. This book is a calling, written to stir the reader from slumber and to invite them ‘home’ in the fastest way possible. It teaches how healing and meditation practices will be made more spiritually expanding – and so more safe and effective – by adopting a ‘consciousness-first’ approach.

”There is much beautiful teaching and wisdom in this book. The author’s perspective is firmly rooted in Transcendence, and this priority consistently brings the reader back to first principles. Particularly useful is the timely and perceptive critique of many of the errors of the ‘New Age’ movement. This is an authentic and remarkable piece of work that deserves a very wide audience.” ~ Alistair Shearer, Author of ‘The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali’ etc
Gaile Walker has been experiencing enlightened states of awareness since the age of 23. Her greatest pleasure is to teach about the nature of enlightenment and effective awareness-expanding meditation and healing. She lives in Cambridge, England.

We suffer when we are identified with our egoic conditioning and unable to recognize the spirit–the love and awareness- that animates our own and all beings. In this talk we explore how recognizing our vulnerability and basic goodness helps us to see through the mask and realize who is here.

Freedom I: Seeing Who is Looking Through the Mask – Part 2

Richard Dawkins, bestselling author and the world’s most celebrated evolutionary biologist, has spent his career elucidating the many wonders of science. Here, he takes a broader approach and uses his unrivaled explanatory powers to illuminate the ways in which the world really works.

Filled with clever thought experiments and jaw-dropping facts, The Magic of Reality explains a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena: How old is the universe? Why do the continents look like disconnected pieces of a jigsaw puzzle? What causes tsunamis? Why are there so many kinds of plants and animals? Who was the first man, or woman? Starting with the magical, mythical explanations for the wonders of nature, Dawkins reveals the exhilarating scientific truths behind these occurrences.

This is a page-turning detective story that not only mines all the sciences for its clues but primes the reader to think like a scientist as well.

Richard Dawkins is a Fellow of the Royal Society and was the inaugural holder of the Charles Simonyi Chair of Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University. He is the acclaimed author of many books including The Selfish Gene, Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, The Ancestor’s Tale, The God Delusion, and The Greatest Show on Earth.

Dave McKean has illustrated and designed many award-winning comics and books as well as CD covers, a Broadway musical, and creatures for the Harry Potter films.

The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True by Richard Dawkins

What are things made of? What is the sun? Why is there night and day, winter and summer? Why do bad things happen? Are we alone? Throughout history people all over the world have invented stories to answer profound questions such as these. Have you heard the tale of how the sun hatched out of an emu’s egg? Or what about the great catfish that carries the world on its back? Has anyone ever told you that earthquakes are caused by a sneezing giant? These fantastical myths are fun – but what is the real answer to such questions? “The Magic of Reality”, with its explanations of space, time, evolution and more, will inspire and amaze readers of all ages – young adults, adults, children, octogenarians.

Teaming up with the renowned illustrator Dave McKean, Richard Dawkins answers all these questions and many more. In stunning words and pictures this book presents the real story of the world around us, taking us on an enthralling journey through scientific reality, and showing that it has an awe-inspiring beauty and thrilling magic which far exceed those of the ancient myths. We encounter rainbows, our genetic ancestors, tsunamis, shooting stars, plants, animals, and an intriguing cast of characters in this extraordinary scientific voyage of discovery. Richard Dawkins and Dave McKean have created a dazzling celebration of our planet that will entertain and inform for years to come.

Beautiful Minds: Richard Dawkins

Professor Richard Dawkins reveals how he came to write his explosive first book The Selfish Gene, a work that was to divide the scientific community and make him the most influential evolutionary biologist of his generation. He also explores how this set him on the path to becoming an outspoken spokesman for atheism.

Please share this video, far and wide! Modern Science is now beginning to confirm what Spirituality, Philosophy, Sages, Ancient teachings and psychedelics have been saying for millennia, that the entire Universe is One and that what we think of as “reality” is just an illusion.. And the only real thing in the Universe is Consciousness.

Buddha’s Book of Sleep is the first book to address sleep disturbances with techniques from mindfulness meditation. Yet this is a natural choice—mindfulness meditation has proven effective for psychological problems such as stress, depression, and anxiety, and these very issues are what become sleep problems when your head hits the pillow.

Divided into two sections, the book approaches sleep deprivation with a combination of wisdom and practical meditation exercises. The first section explains why mindfulness meditation, with its basis in self-awareness, is appropriate for dealing with sleeping problems, and details the practices of this increasingly popular form of meditation. The second section features seven specific exercises to do at bedtime or in the wee hours of the morning, or whenever your sleeping trouble occurs.

Providing a new perspective on why you cannot fall asleep even when you feel exhausted, and arming you with easy-to-use mindfulness meditation exercises, Buddha’s Book of Sleep will help you calm your hurried thoughts, and go from feeling always sleepy to getting the rest you need.

Victoria Hanchin, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Wholistic Psychotherapist, transformational writer, and visionary activist. Her writings are found at http://www.WholePersonWholePlanet.com. Victoria lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she raised her two sons. She offers wholistic psychotherapy in her private practice of over 25 years. She has become quite a fan of “Peaceburgh” and its sacred geography of the converging three rivers and the fourth underground river, which her research revealed are connected to the ancient Mayan 2012 prophetic teachings.

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Dec. 21, 2012, will be the end of the world and Pittsburgh will be at the center of it as predicted by the Mayans thousands of years ago.

Technically, the Mayans didn’t say it was the end of the world, but their calendar does end on Dec. 21, and strangely enough, there are references in their calendar to a geographical point on Earth where three rivers merge with a fourth river- the center of the universe.

“Our rivers are part of the ancient Mayan prophetic teachings that show unity,” Vickie Hanchin, a local psychotherapist, said.

Hanchin has become the unofficial spokesperson of the theory that Pittsburgh will be the portal to a new era.

“The three rivers were put in our landscape by the creator to show the promised time of the return of oneness,” Hanchin said,

Many spiritual leaders, including Mayan scholars and even the Dalai Lama, say that the convergence of Pittsburgh’s rivers is in fact that point, making the ‘Burgh one of the most spiritual places on the planet.

Whatever happens on Dec. 21, it will begin here.

“An alignment is happening in the heavens that is supposed to be supporting us to shift into a higher consciousness,” Hanchin said.

KDKA-AM’s Larry and John talked to Hanchin about the ancient Mayan prophesies and the end of their calendar, which she says is the marking the end of a 26,000-year cycle. On that day, the Point will become a source of healing and enlightenment, ushering in a 1,000 years of peace and love as the universe aligns to be one.

“We’re stewards to a very powerful place that has that message and we should be aware of it,” Hanchin said.

A belief commonly prevails that December 25th, celebrated as Christmas, brings to a close the spiritual festival of the mid- winter solstitial season. This is not true. It only marks the beginning or the entrance upon a period of deep significance. That period is the twelve-day interval between Christmas and Twelfth Night, days which embrace the spiritual heart of the year to follow. These twelve days have been very aptly termed the year’s Holy of Holies.

This work is designed for serious students of the Christian Mysteries, to assist them in placing themselves in more complete attunement with the twelve zodiacal forces released upon the earth during this time.

Every one of the twelve Holy Days is under the direct supervision of one of the twelve zodiacal Hierarchies, each one of which projects over the planet a cosmic pattern of the world as it will be when the combined work of the Hierarchies has been completed. Also, the twelve Disciples are correlated with these twelve Holy Days, as are the twelve spiritual centers through which the twelve forces operate in man’s body-temple.

Every earnest student will, therefore, make use of this sacred period for visualizing the perfected work of the Hierarchies, in meditation upon the life and work of the Disciples, and in directing the spiritual radiations from the Hierarchies through the inner centers in his body to which they are attuned. If he is faithful and persists year after year in this high endeavor, he cannot fail to receive compensation in the form of great spiritual unfoldment.

From the time of the Winter Solstice when the Christ light enters the heart of earth, the planet is swept by powerful solstitial radiations which continue, though somewhat abated, through- out the twelve Holy Days. Many and wondrous are the inner plane activities during this time. The early Christian Church concluded its esoteric ministry on the mystical Twelfth Night with the Rite of Baptism, one of its highest Initiations. Modern neophytes who have earned illumination know that it is then possible to enter into communion with divine Beings and the Lord of Light. It was such an experience that inspired St. John’s Gospel, frequently designated the “Gospel of Love.”

In the outer darkness of the present historical era man has largely lost contact with the Christ light and these days of spirit- renewing. By the travail of Soul through which he is now passing, he is destined to find them again and to make them a vital part of his daily life and his yearly consecration. May this work serve him to that end.

Consciousness Is All is a book on Absolute Reality, sometimes called Infinite Reality. It shows clearly why only Consciousness Itself – also known as the One Self, I Am, Love, Life, the Divine, God, and other terms – is being conscious right here, now. Consciousness is absolutely all there is of all there is. Simply nothing exists outside of, or beyond, Consciousness. As Consciousness is All or One – It thus is not a higher Self, but the only Self. It precludes there being another, lesser consciousness that has to or can become anything.

No transformation is necessary or even possible. This shatters the myth of a would-be secondary self struggling to get at-one with a vague “god.” Read this book as if It were Consciousness, the One Self, talking to Itself. This is the only “viewpoint” that is valid, true, and actually operating because, truly, the Self is the only One being conscious here, now, so this can be read! Stop and think what a marvelous book it would be if the Self, the One, wrote a book about Itself! What would the One Self say? It couldn’t speak of a human struggle of becoming the Self – It could speak only of already being the Self. It wouldn’t have to instruct how to get at-one with Itself, because It already is that! All the Self could speak of is Its own Presence – the immediacy of Itself to Itself. It could state only what It already, presently is – Oneness, Wholeness and Perfection. Would that leave you out? Not at all! That Self being conscious here, now, is the only You there is. After You read this book, You will see that now Life is completely new.

Words: all right here, at all nothing, love is all, love is all you, now this is, right here now, right here right now, say nothing at all, see clearly now, see you now, that is all, this is all, you say nothing at all
Peter Francis Dziuban (pronounced Joobin) is an author/lecturer on Consciousness, Awareness and spirituality.

Peter first became interested in spirituality and philosophy while attending the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. He later investigated many spiritual and mystical teachings and traditions, ranging from Eastern to Christian-based.

Peter’s first book, Consciousness Is All, and other writings are a thorough examination of this subject, with an experiential bias, enabling readers to experience for themselves. He lectures around the country and maintains a website http://www.ConsciousnessIsAll.com and blog, “Reality Check.” His workshops/retreats are concerned primarily with awareness–however, not as a concept or theory, but as alive experience.

Peter also maintains a Youtube channel, currently featuring the popular Time Out! series of 23 videos, which challenge mistaken assumptions and beliefs about time. http://www.Youtube.com/PeterDziuban

Peter has just completed his second book, Simply Notice – Book 1, to be published early 2013. Simply Notice is intended to be a series of books, designed to make the deeper points of nondual awareness clear and accessible to the general public. Through simple, experiential noticing exercises Book 1 exposes and reverses the age-old belief of Life being on earth–revealing “earth” to be but mere perceptions in unlimited Life, Love.

What we said on this show is absolutely simple, and with a way of expressing it that we have all merely glossed over with inculturated assumptions for our total lifetimes.

According to Jan Phillips we are living in no ordinary times! We are witnessing and participating in an evolutionary leap unlike anything in our history. There is evidence in the human family of an upward shift in consciousness, a maturing spirituality, a connectedness that grows more intimate and global by the day. And that uplift is countered by the dissolution of myths that no longer serve us, and the demise of institutions that have underpinned our culture since the beginning of our history.

Jan Phillips is an evolutionary artist, author, workshop director and social activist. She is co-founder and Executive Director of the Livingkindness Foundation (www.livingkindness.org), a global network of grassroots philanthropists turning creativity into compassionate action. Jan is also co-founder of Syracuse Cultural Workers, publishers of artwork for social justice and global consciousness. (www.syracuseculturalworkers.com)

She has taught in 23 countries, made a peace pilgrimage around the world, produced 2 CDs of original music, and created several videos on the power of creativity to transform consciousness. Her other books include The Art of Original Thinking-The Making of a Thought Leader, Divining the Body, Marry Your Muse, God is at Eye Level–Photography as a Healing Art, Making Peace, Born Gay, and A Waist is a Terrible Thing to Mind.

As a performing artist/speaker, Jan brings music, poetry, and images to all her audiences, using the arts to inspire as well as inform. Blending east and west, art and activism, reflection and ritual, Jan’s presentations provoke original thinking and evolutionary action. With stories, humor and cutting edge creativity, she connects the dots between science, spirituality and social action.
