Book Discussion and Fran Lewis welcomes author JJ White the author of The Prodigious Savant.
In Burlington, Vermont, 1962, seventeen-year-old Gavin Weaver survives a dreadful explosion, six hours of brain surgery, and thirty days in a coma, to awake possessing not just one savant talent, but several, including art, music, mathematics, and memory—and all without suffering any of the usual mental disabilities associated with head trauma...if he survives
According to Dr. Darold A. Treffert of the University of Wisconsin, there are fewer than one hundred reported cases of prodigious savants in the world. Those few who possess the savant syndrome all have an island of brilliance that allows them to excel in some remarkable talent. Unfortunately, they all share various developmental disabilities.
In Burlington, Vermont, 1962, seventeen-year-old Gavin Weaver survives a dreadful explosion, six hours of brain surgery, and thirty days in a coma, to awake possessing not just one savant talent, but several, including art, music, mathematics, and memory—and all without suffering any of the usual mental disabilities associated with head trauma.
To learn more about Gavin, his syndrome and the talents of a prodigious savant join me at four eastern, three centeral and two mountain. Ask your questions in the chat room.
The odds are slim that Gavin will survive both the internal and external conflicts, which keep him from the one thing he wants most, the girl he’s loved since childhood.

"JJ Semple didn't start out to explore Kundalini; he stumbled into it years ago, when a stranger handed him a book called, The Secret of the Golden Flower. At first, he didn't understand the book. Although it concerned a Kundalini Meditation method, the text was difficult to penetrate. He wondered if such an ancient text might apply to the modern world. Did the method really work? Was there more to it than poetry and symbolism?
Only after practicing the method did he find the answer. Along the way there were lots of twists and turns, false starts and missteps. Nevertheless, he persisted, working his way through the method one technique at a time, finally discovering it was a method for awakening Kundalini. Condensing The Secret of the Golden Flower into a viable modern method of meditation took time, over thirty years, in fact. His discoveries are described in JJ Semple's books, Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time and The Backward-Flowing Method: The Secret Of Life and Death."
Wednesday October 8, 6pm EDT: Drs. J.J. & Desiree Hurtak will be joining Mitchell to discuss the current global environmental situation as well as the marginalization of indigenous groups, especially in and around the Amazon Rainforest.J.J. & Desiree Hurtak have been on A Better World Radio & TV in the past, and will be joining Mitchell again to talk about the documentary, Wisdom of the Wayshowers.
Drs. Hurtak,are social scientists and founders of The Academy For Future Science, an international NGO at the U.N. They are also authors, researchers and have also been working with the indigenous people of South America. They were recent speakers at the U.N. Rio plus 20 Summit (2012) on global environmental issues. Their books focus on science and consciousness studies.
As protests take place globally, we must each ask ourselves what is our role in this changing world? Are the 7 billion people on the planet coming to a breaking point or a place of consciousness transformation? We will discuss the possible ways to help make life on earth a better place through both technological advances and ways to ensure peaceful conflict resolution.
The Hurtaks are colleagues and good friends with Mitchell and have appeared on A Better World Radio & TV several times over the years, sharing their discoveries, travels and work as social scientists, discussing their contribution to creating a better world for all beings.
"Spiritual development is all about transformation. Transformation is a very personal undertaking. Each individual must find his or her way. Transformation — from the initial search-for-truth to the final activation of the Kundalini~Life Force — should not be thought of as a single event, but a flow of events, each one with a slim likelihood of completion. So much goes into completing the process: inspiration, motivation, discovery, detective work, exercise, meditation — to say nothing of frustration, disappointment, and disinformation. The path is long, hard, and uncertain, because up till now, no permanent, voluntary, safe, repeatable method for shepherding a novice through the entire process existed."

BROUGHT TO YOU BY USA EAGLE MMA
Joining us on the show today will be Conflict MMA Promotions CEO Jared Williams to discuss the upcoming COnflict 23 event set for December 6th in Hardeeville, SC. With an incredible 2014 almost in the books for the promotion, today we look back at the year and dive right onto Fight Club Hardeeville in what is sure to be another great Conflict event.
Stay tuned to War of the Words all this week and next as we continue to bring these great fighters from the cage to your ear drums ahead of Dec 6th's fantastic card. And be sure to meet us there in Hardeeville for what promises to be one of Conflicts most explosive cards, and one hell of a way to close out 2014.
"From August- December we will have held a show every month and only repeated a city once (Columbia, SC) which is a goal achieved that seems unreal for us. 5 events, 4 cities, 5 months sounds so absurd that I honestly try to figure out how it comes together like it does, but it always does and it’s always fun. It was incredible to add Macon, Myrtle Beach, and Hardeeville to the growing list of cities we go to.
Key moments for me in these last few events have been #1 Alexa Conners comeback KO over Allison Ainley in Columbia in her 145lb title defense, Kobe Wall earned two KO’s in two weeks in two weight classes (Macon & Savannah), seeing our heavyweight champion sign and get the opportunity to live out his dream fighting for Bellator, and the emergence of Lamar Brown, Mark Trader and Eddie Miller as future stars within the promotion. Oh, and Adrian Henderson Vs Nick Smiley was an absolute stunner, as was Ben Brewer Vs Micah Miller! So many great moments. Did I mention our champ JJ Aldrich also signed with Invicta?"
