    The Universe of Consciousness with Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell & Sister Jenna

    in Self Help

    Sister Jenna welcomes Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell for a thought-provoking interview on the America Meditating Radio Program.


    On January 31, 1971, Navy Captain Dr. Edgar Mitchell embarked on a journey into outer space that resulted in becoming the sixth man to walk on the moon.  This historic journey ended safely nine days later. It was an audacious time in the history of mankind. For Dr. Mitchell, however, the most extraordinary journey was yet to come. Traveling back to Earth, having just walked on the moon, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell had an experience for which nothing in his life had prepared him. As he approached the planet we know as home, he was filled with an inner conviction as certain as any mathematical equation he'd ever solved. He knew that the beautiful blue world to which he was returning is part of a living system, harmonious and whole—and that we all participate, as he expressed it later, "in a universe of consciousness."  Within two years of his expedition, Dr. Mitchell founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences in 1973 and he serves on the board of directors of the Institute.


    Watch the Institute of Noetic Sciences video on “Consciousness Matters :Exploring the Mysteries of Inner Space.”  This video features: Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Deepak Chopra, Marilyn Schlitz, Dean Radin and Cassandra Vieten in an exploration of the Mysteries of Inner Space.  For almost 40 years, the Institute of Noetic Sciences has explored the fundamental powers and potentials of consciousness using the tools of basic science.

    Institute of Noetic Sciences Round Table: Barbara Hubbard & Cassandra Vieten

    in Lifestyle

    ***Please note that due to a last-minute change, Edgar Mitchell was not able to make the Round Table.


    Wednesday, June 24, 6pm EDT: This week’s radio show is a Round Table about the Institute for Noetic Sciences (IONS) and the upcoming Conference in Chicago, July 22-26.  Joining Mitchell in the Round Table are IONS Founder, astronaut Edgar Mitchell, IONS current President Cassandra Vieten and the internationally-renowned visionary evolutionist Barbara Marx Hubbard.


    IONS is an outstanding organization with a global reach, educating people about the relationship between science and spirituality, a favorite subject here at A Better World.  Through Conferences, publications and more, IONS is helping to upgrade our understanding of phenomena which have been passed on by conventional science, such as parapsychology, yet the implications of this kind of human potential opens up vistas paralleled, well, as Edgar Mitchell suggested when he was in space, by the beauty and mystery of Earth from the point of view of the Moon.  IONS work in this sphere is helping humanity come to a new understanding about itself and “who” we really are.


    The annual Conference, in Oak Brook, just outside Chicago, is a venue for this kind of dialogue and many similar ones, so certainly worth looking into and attending.  Go to: www.noetic.org.  Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Edgar Mitchell, Dean Radin, Cassie Vieten are among a stellar group of speakers at the Conference.  I will be there as well representing the NY chapter of IONS, known as FIONS.  Please join us for this special Conference.  Edgar Mitchell was a guest on A Better World TV back in in 1996 and Barbara in 2010, as well as numerous times over the years on A Better World Radio.

    Ancient Astronaut Theory Special: New Discoveries In India And DWARKA

    in History

    In this special 1 hour May 6, 2014 edition of "Nature Of Reality Radio" I welcome back Ancient Astronaut Theorist Jason Martell and welcome his colleague Amish Shah to talk about the release of a new documentary called DWARKA that pertains to new discoveries being made in India. We'll also discuss how these findings tie into the overall advanced knowledge of astronomy that is encoded into megalithic sites around the world. There is a reason why over 30 cultures tracked a much larger cycle of time, and our science is just starting to understand this cycle.
