    Fighting Gravity: Blind, Deaf & Dumb ~ Who Loses ?

    in Poetry

     In Association with the T.E.A.B.A.G. Enterprises Incorporated

    Fighting Gravity:
    Stop the fighting and enjoy flight and embrace the reality of life.
    Reaching each mind and Teaching each mind to REACH and TEACH others to REACH and TEACH ONE ANOTHER. Reaching out to those who want to join in the effort to affect the mind of the masses lifting the weight of Gr...avity.

    A vehicle for progress. If anything holds you down , let it go, and rise. That means "Anything".
    If something or someone is the catalyst of you not getting to your destination; Let it go... Its like; two heads of cattle in a yoke, and one is walking and the other is standing still. What is happening? The team is going in circles, not getting anywhere.


    Empowerment and Enabling, Keys for Construction and Destruction... Lets talk about it

    Releasing the dead weight = The sky is only the base of how far you can actually go.

    Deaf Awareness Week: Living Your Purpose in a Perceivably Silent World

    in Spirituality

    The last week in September is Deaf Awareness Week in the United States. Deaf people have their own culture and language. It is not something that a hearing person or someone not born deaf can just assimilate into their life. Many changes have been made in technology that allow Deaf people to more easily communicate with Hearing people, but there is still a gap. 


    Listen on Monday, Sept. 22, noon PDT/3 p.m. EDT/8 p.m. UK on Purpose Talk Radio as host Cindy Freeman discusses her experiences with learning sign language and about Deaf Culture.  If possible, there may be some Deaf appearing on the show with interpreters to share their culture and answer questions as well.

    Additionally, Cindy will speak to Brian Peters, housing specialist at Independence First in Milwaukee.  Brian and Cindy will communicate through an interpreter. 


    Feel free to cal in and ask questions.


    For more of our guest's background, visit Purpose Talk Radio.


    Each Monday at 12 noon PST/3 pm EST/8 pm UK, our host, Cindy Freeman, and her guests bring insights and ideas to help you grow in your Soul path. Cindy's guests are from a variety of professionn, are experts on living their life with a purpose and are willing to share with listeners how they got there and how others might benefit from their experience. Join Cindy on Mondays live or archived to explore this area.

    Walking by Faith, Without Sight, Through Your Purpose—with Amy Bovaird

    in Spirituality

    We all have visions for our life. Not everyone can see those visions. On Friday, Feb. 20, noon PT/3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. UK, Amy Bovaird will talk about how her vision for life changed literally and figuratively when she at age 28 doctors diagnosed her with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and later with Usher’s Syndrome, the leading cause of both blindness and deafness. The eyesight loss she was experiencing from RP was not only going to be irriversible, but would get worse. Add to that, she had a disease that was likely to take her hearing also. Amy will share her new vision and how others who experiences such "losses" can still move forward, overcoming obstacles, beat the odds of what others say "can't" be done by a visually impaired and/or deaf person. This includes living independently, world travel, and having a teaching and writing career. This interview definitely will be eye-opening even to those who can see and hear "normally."


    Each Friday at 12 noon PST/3 pm EST/8 pm UK, host Cindy Freeman and her guests bring insights and ideas to help you grow in your Soul path. Cindy's guests are live their life with a purpose and are willing to share with listeners how they got there and how others might benefit from their experience. Join Cindy live or archived to explore this area.
