Barbara Ford talks with Ani and Lyn about her part in the Earth Day Conference & Celebration

“Barbara Ford is an impassioned leader of the Great Turning, a visionary artisan of cultural evolution, one of our best twenty-first-century guides to a better world. She helps us remember who we are and where we are and to contribute joyously and effectively to our endangered world in these times of radical opportunity. She guides humbly yet boldly, methodically yet spontaneously, soberly yet humorously — with sparkling creativity, mischievous delight, a great heart, and compelling song.”

Keith McHenry, co-founder of Food Not Bombs is our guest.

Lyn and Ani are excited for the opportunity to talk with Keith about the work of Food Not Bombs and the efforts by the establishment to stop their important service.

Keith has been arrested more than 100 times, serving over 500 nights in jail.  He faced a sentence of 25 years to life because of the California Three Strikes Law, but was released after an Amnesty International campaign.

What makes feeding people so dangerous?  Isn't it good to feed the hungry?  Why has Food Not Bombs been targetted by the establishment.

Ani and Lyn interview Ross Jackson and take your calls

People all over the world are rising up against the global financial cabal that has essentially bought governments and left economies in tatters. In his book Occupy World Street: A Global Roadmap for Radical Economic and Political Reform, Ross Jackson describes the global financial practices that have driven economies -and recources- to the brink of collapse.  He also, puts forth a compelling, detailed plan to let sovereign nations regain control of their economies and replace them with institutions that flips the paradim of profit before environmental standards.

Short Description: 
Ani and Lyn look at the current fog of sexism blanketing the political scene.

 Women who want contraceptive care conisidered to be part of basic health coverage called sluts and prostitutes....  Legislation is written to mollify religious organizations and business owners that will deny employees access to contraceptive care, if the owners deem such coverage as contrary to their religious views. 

In this election year it seems as if the old pendulum is swinging far, far to the puritanical end of the spectrum.

Well, ani and Lyn aren't having it.

Ani and Lyn talk with Micheal Meade about his upcoming event Voices of Veterans a Bridge Back Home

Mosaic Voices will be bringing Michael Meade and returning veterans to the First Unitarian Church in Portland on Saturday June 30th for a presentation entitled Voices of Veterans: A Bridge Back Home

This Welcome Home Ceremony brings together veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, veterans of other wars, and the local community. It intends to help heal the distance between the warriors and those they protect and to bridge the gaps between war and peace, trauma and renewal, pain and understanding. Such a welcoming involves a courageous community conversation that moves beyond politics and goes deeper than the rhetoric of war. It begins with tragedy and loss — the aftermath of any war — and requires the language of poetry and story, as well as the dignity of ceremony.

Celebrating the Summer Solstice with mini-tarot and astrology readings.

Ani and Lyn discuss the significance of the Summer Solstice.  As a treat for listeners, they give short tarot & astrology consultations on the air.  

Recognizing the quarter and cross-quarter holidays in the neo-Celtic year (northern hemisphere) is one way to connect with the rhythms of the earth, and to connect with the changes that each season brings.  The Summer Solstice is a time of outwardly focused exuberance.  It is a good time to take action, and to gather family and friends together in a celebration of interconnectivity. This is the time to enact our dreams; a time to bring our visions forth into the world of the tangible.

Positively Revolting on 06-01-12 Self-compassion with Dr. Kristin Neff

program date: 
Fri, 06/01/2012

Lyn and guest host Theresa Mitchell speak with Dr. Kristin Neff about self-compassion

The relentless search for high self-esteem has become a virtual religion; and a tyrannical one at that. Our competitive culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves, but we can’t all be above average at the same time. There is always someone richer, more attractive, or successful than we are. And even when we do manage to feel self-esteem for one golden moment, we can’t hold on to it. Dr. Kristin Neff, an Associate Professor in Human Development and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin says self-compassion is an antidote to the web of deception surrounding the mythos of "self esteem".
