    in Social Networking

    Journeying with us today are two phenomenal men: Best-selling Author, International Speaker, Business Strategist and Intuitive Mentor Ken D. Foster of Premier Coaching (www.premiercoaching.com), and Poet, Author, and Literary Activist E. Ethelbert Miller (www.eethelbertmiller.com). The accolades for both are downright stunning.


    Ken is one of the country's leading figures in the science of business and consciousness. Over the last 19 years Ken has worked with thousands of clients who have increased their awareness, changed viewpoints and have transcended their limitations around business, money, success, relationship, and communication. Ken is a master at guiding clients to find the deep answers to their greatest challenges in business and life by showing them how to attain soulful communion and apply proven methods to realize peace, abundance, joy, and fulfillment. He will speak with us today about the techniques he uses, how he came to the path of the work he does, and the many ways his clients struggle then overcome.


    E. Ethelbert Miller knows all that it is possible to know about African American literature; he is an international expert on Black writing. He has written over 11 books as well as four anthologies and counting. He is the board chairperson of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a progressive multi-issue think tank and a board member of The Writer's Center and editor of Poet Lore magazine.  From 1974-2015, he was the director of the African American Resource Center at Howard University.  Mr. Miller is the former chair of the Humanities Council of Washington, D.C. and a former core faculty member of the Bennington Writing Seminars at Bennington College. We will speak with Poet Miller about several issues of the day, learning from the breath, depth, and width of his vast knowledge of the legacy that is African American writing.

    Half of Chap 6&7 Reading of "Rulers of Evil" F. Tupper Saussy by Jörg Glismann

    in History

    DE T E R M I N E D O N a priestly life, Iñigo de Loyola returned to Barcelona from Jerusalem in the spring of 1524. He spent the next three years in Spain getting the requisite Latin. Since direct contact with the Bible was prohibited by law, his reading
    coursed the humanities.


    With the esoteric experience of his Spiritual Exercises, he charmed the wives of important men. He received frequent invitations to dine at elegant tables, but preferred to beg food door to door and distribute the choice pickings to the poor and sick. He
    lived in an attic and slept on the floorboards, trying desperately to persuade God of hisworthiness. He prayed for six hours each day, attended mass three times a week, confessed every Sunday, and continued whipping himself. He devised secret penances, such as boring holes in his shoes and going barefoot in winter. Sometimes the Exercises aroused in his followers instances of bizarre conduct – swooning, long spells of fainting or melancholia, rolling about the ground, being gripped with corpse-like rigidity.  The Spanish Inquisition investigated him on suspicion of preaching
    gnostic illuminism. When Iñigo insisted that he was not preaching at all, but was merely talking about the things of God ina familiar way, the Inquisitor released him. In successive frays, the Inquisition ordered Iñigo (1) to get rid of his eccentric clothing
    and dress like other students, (2) to refrain from holding meetings until he had completed four years of study, and (3) to refrain from defining what constituted a grave sin. Wearying of the harassment, he decided to seek his four years of education beyond the Inquisition’s reach.

    The Work of Wisdom-God's Miracle Power

    in Christianity

    Wisdom Chapter 10 in the Apocryphia Books.


    What did wisdom do for Adam, Cain, Noah, Abraham, Lot, Jacob, and Joseph?  How did the Israelites benefit from wisdom?  "Wisdom gave speech to those who could not speak; she even caused babies to speak clearly," (Wisdom 10:21).  Wisdom is the very breath of God, God's power breathing in His people that brings His people life and not death.  It is a benefit of all God's people to get wisdom and understanding, it is humanities life saving power.


    STILL IN PRAYER FOR PEOPLE IN UNITY WITH THIS MINISTRY.

    Animals & the Spiritual Imagination w/Sabina Magliocco

    in Spirituality

    Our interview tonight:  Animals and the Spiritual Imagination with Dr. Sabina Magliocco, PhD,  Professor of Anthropology at California State University, Northridge, CA.  Throughout history and in many different cultures, animals have been imagined as totems, spirit guides, divine messengers, even goddesses and gods.  But how do we imagine our spiritual relationship to other animals today? My work explores this question by examining both mainstream cultural and religious practices and those of contemporary Pagans, a group of religions that revive some practices of pre-Christian cultures, finding surprising confluences between the two.  My conclusion is that as animals, especially domestic ones, are increasingly granted a place in our family lives, their role in our spiritual imagination is also shifting.  And given the danger to all living species on our planet today, that could be a very good thing.


    Dr. Magliocco, a recipient of Guggenheim, National Endowment for the Humanities, Fulbright and Hewlett fellowships, and an honorary Fellow of the American Folklore Society,  has published on religion, folklore, foodways, festival and witchcraft in Europe and the United States, and is a leading authority on the modern Pagan movement. She is the author of numerous books and articles, including The Two Madonnas: the Politics of Festival in a Sardinian Community (1993, 2005), Witching Culture: Folklore and Neo-Paganism in America (2004), Neopagan Sacred Art & Altars: Making Things Whole (2001), and with filmmaker John M. Bishop produced the documentary film series “Oss Tales,” on a May Day custom in Cornwall and its reclamation by American Pagans.  Her current research is on animals in the spiritual imagination

    BLT - Business Life Transitions with guest Fred Weber

    in Marketing

    This week's guest is Fred Weber.


    Fred began his professional life on an academic track.  With a Ph.D. in philosophy from Northwestern, he joined the faculty of the University of Hawaii at Hilo.  Involvement in a public program in the humanities, however, led him to the state-based program of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in Providence, RI.  When federal funding for the arts and humanities grew scarce, a newly acquired MBA helped get him back to his native Chicago in a marketing position with Follett Corporation.  The fit was excellent, and Fred stayed with Follett for nearly 30 years, retiring 3 years ago as SVP of Wholesale and Distribution Services.  But, this year he returned to the college store industry as CEO of the ICBA, a retail cooperative of over 150 institutionally owned college stores. Business Life Transitions is a radio show that talks about you and your business.  It will help you understand how to re-invent yourself, your business, and your life.
