All parents face daily obstacles, but parents of children with autism experience increased challenges that can result in overwhelming anxiety, depression, self-doubt and sadness.

"Now when my friends tell me they wish they had met Osho, I tell them that they have; he's in every note Deva and I sing - in every breath we take. That's what happens when you sit with the guruji - he/she dissolves into you until you become aware of the divine presence all the time, whatever you're doing, the presence is with you - tangible." - Miten
Miten established a successful career in the 70's and 80's as a singer/songwriter, touring with such bands as Fleetwood Mac, Lou Reed and Ry Cooder. Ultimately, he found the rock 'n' roll life-style unfulfilling and empty, and he began an inner search which led him into the world of meditation. It was at this time he came upon the most important and influential figure in his life, the mystic, Osho. Miten proceeded to live his explorations, spending most of his time in India at the ashram of Osho, where he eventually found a way to express his gratitude through music.
In 1990, Miten met Deva Premal in India and soon began a journey into love and creativity that has taken their inspiring blend of song, mantra and meditation to a worldwide audience. They have released a string of acclaimed CDs with international sales of nearly one million, and their concerts and ecstatic chant workshops are met with rave reviews throughout Europe, Australia, South America, Canada and the U.S. Deva Premal and Miten will perform at Bhakti Fest in Joshua Tree, CA on Friday, September 5th.

Dr. Bernier joins Autism Spectrum Radio to discuss the latest research about autism and what it means to the 1 in 68 now being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.
Dr. Bernier is a licensed clinical psychologist, the Clinical Director of the Seattle Children’s Autism Center, and an Associate Professor at the University of Washington. He received his PhD at the University of Washington, his clinical training at UCLA, and also holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin and Tufts University. Dr. Bernier’s clinical and research interests span many aspects of autism--from genetics and neuroscience to diagnostic characterization and cognitive-behaviorally based interventions. As a clinician, author of over 50 publications, author of the book Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Reference Handbook, and as the principle investigator on a number of NIH- and foundation-funded research studies, Dr. Bernier is interested in bridging the gap in our understanding of the relationship between etiology, neurological underpinnings of deficits in social cognition, and the behavioral presentation of autism spectrum disorder.
Please join host Jason Wade Taylor/Randy Hahn LIVE @ 10:00pm EST for three hours of hard hitting honest radio.
The recent on goings in Conservative social media have gotten to the point of embarrassing, and extremely sad. From Bully’s, to fakes and frauds using the Conservative ‘Tag’ as a means to hawk their goods on Twitter when they are anything but what they claim to be. It pisses me off to watch so many far right Conservatives using the same tactics as the radical progressives have used against us for years.
I’m going to let loose on a number of these “Conservatives” that call my party home, most of these ‘dumber than a bag of rocks’ Conservatives are doing a good job at helping the liberals keep the senate, and putting another Clinton in the White House in 2016; the madness has to stop.
