    Healing House Radio with Dr. Ayleen - Attitude of Gratitude & Living For Giving

    in Spirituality

    On behalf of myself and producer Kyna, happy Thanksgiving  everyone!  Today (here in the USA) we are celebrating a day of giving thanks for whaqt we have.  While it is very true that both on a personal and cultural level, this day holds the full spectrum of light and shadow.  That said, a day that focuses on expressing and recognizing what we have to be thankful for is a great idea.  While it is wonderful to remember all the things we are grateful for is wonderful, it feel even better to share the blessings through giving.  On today's episode, we'll be looking at ways to share blessings and bring up the spirits of those in need...even if the spirit that need raising is our own!


    In honor of the holiday, we won't be opening the chatroom after the show.  I can be reached through my website at www.the-healing-house.com.

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with Bob Walicki

    in Writing

    Dorit Sasson of Giving Voice to Your Courage, interviews Bob Walicki, a Pittsburgh based poet and the curator of VERSIFY, a monthly reading series in Pittsburgh, on the role courage has taken him from challenging the traditional roles of what it means to be a sensitive man in a field that looks on his poetic sensitivity as a weakness. 


     


    His work has appeared in HEArt, Stone Highway Review, Uppagus, The Kentucky Review,Grasslimb, and on the radio show Prosody. He won 1st runner up in the 2013 Finishing Line Open Chapbook Competition and was awarded finalist in the 2013 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Competition. He currently has two chapbooks published: A Room Full of Trees (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2014) and The Almost Sound of Snow Falling (Night Ballet Press, 2015). He lives in Verona, PA with his wife, Lynne, and two cats.


     


    Bob Walicki has worked for years in the construction industry and as a plumber. As a poet, he's been the target of prejudices because he didn't fit into those traditional roles. Often he has to hide being a poet in the building trades industry though he says, "recently it's been liberating to write about those experiences in my new chapbook, "The Almost Sound of Snow Falling."

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with Pamela Olson

    in Writing

    In this episode of Giving Voice to Your Courage, Dorit Sasson interviews Pamela Olson, memoirist of Fast Times in Palestine..."a moving, inspiring account of life in Palestine that's enormously informative yet reads like a novel... Part adventure story, part searing reportage, part love story."


     


    Pamela's story could just be any Westerner's story, even mine.


    My relationship with understanding the life in the Middle East was also informed by headlines and stereotypes. 


    On this episode, we'll talk about the courage it took for Pamela to break free from these stereotypes and to connect with the reality she was thrown into.
