    The Art of Participatory Leadership, Emergence

    in Work

    FACING THE EMERGING TRUTH, an interview with Chris Corrigan. Part II in our radio series on this powerful group process methodology:  The Art of Participatory Leadership! 

    Chris Corrigan is a process artist, a teacher and a facilitator of social technologies for face to face conversation in the service of emergence.  He supports the invitation to collaborate, to organize, to find one another and make a difference in our communities, organizations, and lives.  The fundamental human capacities of this era are among the most ancient: invitation and conversation.  Join us as we explore who typically shows up, the reason why people respond to this process, and how things unfold.

    The essence of what we’re talking about:

    Both personal and group capacity for engagement, authentic living and learning, and addressing the emerging momentum of whatever we are involved in or approached with.  This is about being as ready for anything as we can be, and developing the capacity to become agile as an individual, and as a group, team, organization, family, or community.

    Meaningful Use and Electronic Health Records

    in Health

    Joyce and Mike speak with Dr. Joshua Seidman about the concept of "Meaningful Use" in healthcare and how it can be used along with electronic health records (EHR) to improve patient care.

    Dr. Seidman is Vice President in charge of Payment and Delivery Reform at Avalere Health.  He is also the Immediate Past President of the Society for Participatory Medicine.

    Previouslyt, Seidman was the Director of Meaningful Use at the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology within the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. At ONC, Dr. Seidman guided development of resources that helped providers become meaningful users of HIT, and helped to evolve meaningful use practice and policy. During nearly two decades in health care, Seidman has focused on: quality measurement and improvement; the intersection of e-health and health services research; and structuring consumer e-health interventions to support improved health behaviors and informed decision making.

    Before that, Seidman was the founding President of the Center for Information Therapy, which advanced the practice and science of delivering tailored information to consumers to help them make better health decisions and lead healthier lives. At the IxCenter, Seidman focused on stimulating innovation, diffusing best practices, and evangelizing for a patient-centered orientation to implementation of HIT applications.

    Muriel Lindsay--The Dolphin Letters- Vital Information from Sea to Land

    in Spirituality

    Muriel Lindsay lives on a barrier island off the coast of Georgia having moved there 15 years ago for the specific purpose of connecting with the dolphins. She moved there to find a way to answer to an inner knowing.  There is something she is supposed to come to understand and then share about the human/dolphin/whale connection. In that spirit of investigation, she has spent 15 years doing  "participatory research" which basically amounts to just hanging out with dolphins on their terms, in the wild, both in and on the water (from her yellow kayak "Buttercup"), while opening all of her mental, emotional, physical and spiritual channels. She is affectionately known on the island as "the dolphin whisperer" based on her connections with the dolphins there.

    In 2014, she publishined of THE DOLPHIN LETTERS, VITAL INFORMATION FROM SEA TO LAND, a collection of 33 letters from dolphins to the human race. She says of this particular book, she was born to bring it through at this particular time on our changing planet. Everything she has done previously in her life led to this sharing.

     In 2007, she published THE CHRONICLES OF THE SAVANNAH RIVER DOLPHINS sharing about five years of experiences with the dolphins. In 2000 she published  TALKING TO HURRICANES about the consciousness of weather. In 1980 she wrote DANCERS OVER THE CHASM describing the prototype for the kind of individual who knows how to handle transformation the best.

    Prior to moving to her current home on Tybee Island Muriel was a teacher of metaphysics, a healer, a psychotherapist, a photographer and author who traveled the world to gather knowledge from many ancient grounds that would assist her with what she is currently doing. She also has been a professional astrologer since 1977. She has been able to spend time with dolphins in the wild literally all over the world.

    Stepping Into The New Earth With Sacha Stone

    in Current Events

    Sacha Stone is founder of New Earth Nation, the planetary sovereignty, consciousness and sustainability movement convening itself as the worlds first extraterritorial nation of peoples from all cultures & faiths.

    New Earth Nation is founded in recognition of the supremacy of consciousness, the unity of all life and the undeniability of the individual sovereign condition. It is an open invitation to every member of the human family to transition away from all systems and enclosures which limit our capacity for creative self expression, and instead unite as an extraterritorial family of sovereign individuals who, with the support and solidarity of that family, are collectively empowered to consciously cocreate a new paradigm of prosperity, harmony and abundance.

    A long-time architect and facilitator of global initiatives impacting sustainability, natural justice and social ecology, Sacha is outspoken against the centralisation of power and of multilateral institutional manipulation, and emphasises the need for a conscious return (via a total collapse of the collective human conceptual framework) back into the true 'zero-point' contained within the quanta of the (collective) human heart - in order for us to qualify and participate fully in the next great step in our human and planetary evolution.

    If we are to manifest sustainability and foster an energy & socio-ecological revolution in our times, Sacha believes we must acknowledge that participatory 'consciousness' is the chief factor. Technology and consciousness are intimately connected and it is time for us to engage that conversation without fear of scorn from a world still largely trapped in linear logic and limitations of the conditioned mind.

    Join Brendan D. Murphy and Aimee Devlin on Global Freedom Movement Radio as they step into the New Earth with Sacha Stone.
