    Zen and the Art of Dying: The Film's Director Broderick Fox

    in Movies

    Broderick Fox’s award-winning narrative, experimental, and documentary works present challenging, socially relevant issues through accessible, character-driven storytelling and have screened in over 50 international festivals. Fox’s last feature documentary The Skin I’m In (2012) had its world premiere at the Byron Bay International Film Festival in Australia, where he met Zenith Virago. She was an audience member who approached him after the screening, and their shared sensibilities and interests precipitated an immediate connection, leading to Fox's latest documentary, Zen and the Art of Dying.  Zenith is an activist and educator who for over 20 years has been leading Australia towards a more communal, celebratory, and creative engagement with death and dying. From her origins as a young mother in the UK, to her present day identity as a lesbian, feminist, and self-described deathwalker in the idyllic seaside town of Byron Bay, Her Zenith’s personal and professional experiences quietly challenge our core assumptions about life and dissolve our taboos around death. More information on the film and the natural death care movement.

    Zen Master Jeff Kitzes Asks: "Whose Path Am I On?"

    in Entrepreneur

    Are you stuck in a rut? Are you unhappy in your job? So are a majority of employees, even those who feel fortunate to have a job.

    Livelihood host Marcy Rosenbaum and guest Zen Master Bon Soeng (Jeff Kitzes) discuss what you can do when you feel you’re living someone else’s plan for your life. Jeff talks about the power of looking inward to find what’s most important to you. When you can’t change the company or the boss, there are still some things you can do to find increased satisfaction at work. Your career, he suggests, can be an expression of who you are, even when your opportunities are stalled or limited.

    In today's interview, Jeff talks about the power of looking inward to find the meaning in the opportunities you encounter.

    He enjoys my reaction of horror as he references Donald Rumsfeld comment "You don't know what you don't know"; and my chagrin when I acknowledge that insightful remarks can come from unlikely sources. (I take some consolation that Rumsfeld stole the comment from Albert Einstein, who said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge; knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand".)

    How does someone become a Zen Master?

    One experience at a time.

    Meet Jeff Kitzes, Guiding Teacher at Empty Gate Zen Center in Berkley California. Also known as Zen Master Bon Soeng (which means "original nature") he is a meditation teacher, carpenter, licensed psychotherapist, writer and celebrant.

    Join Us With Zen Garcia To Reveal The Key To The Kingdom

    in Current Events

     Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

    14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

    15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

    16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    in Moms and Family

    Napoleon Hill Foundation Certified Instructor, Tom Cunningham (too tall), interviews Christina Callander, author of When Mommies Get Crazy! about Forgiving Ourselves and Accepting Unconditional Love. 

    Have you ever seen a mommy get crazy? I bet you have. People of all ages, whether you are a mom or have had a mom at some point in your life, will relate to this heartwarming tale of sleepover plans getting cancelled when a mommy gets crazy; and will appreciate ending up in a place of forgiveness and Love.

    “When Mommies Get Crazy!” is a children’s book that helps us accept the craziness that seems to be part of life.  We are all human and humans are not perfect.  We make mistakes.  That’s how we learn.  Our own mistakes help us learn that God loves us – mistakes and all – just the way we are.  You don’t have to earn God’s love, or your child’s or your parent’s.  It’s always there, you just need to choose to accept it.

    MMSRS 57 - What is a Military Spouse?

    in Military

    Male Military Spouses. We know how we feel when we join in with the unit family readiness meetings - alone, odd, left-out. But are we the only ones? Is our "uniqueness" truly ours? Join host Dave Etter as we discuss this very perception. Call (516) 453-9167 live and join in!

    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Typically airs Fridays at 9am CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and always available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

    Discussing Sexual Identity with Your Kids: The G-Spot with Meka Rae

    in LGBT

    Hi Bedroom Playmates

    We are discussing how to talk to your kids about same sex love. Kids go to school and may have two same sex parents. How do you discuss with your child's teacher that she or her needs to make gifts for two mommies or daddies and not a mommy and daddy? How do you as heterosexual parents explain why little Molly has two mothers/daddies and not the "traditional" daddy and mommy? How do you handle being a "second" mommy or daddy to your child when you go to school functions? What if you child comes you and tells you that they are gay. lesbian, or interested in being the opposite than their birth? What does that conversation look like? Have you had the talk with your kids regarding gay marriage and what it looks like literally and figuratively?

    This is going to be an interesting discussion. 

    I would love to hear from same sex parents, heterosexual parents of same gender loving childern or transsexual kids, etc. 


    Lets learn and grow together

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    Sound Healing Frequencies for Peace and Health

    in Current Events

    Are you listening to music and hoping to feel a sense of balance in your body but just can't quite find it?  Is meditation a practice that you just can't seem to get a handle on?  Just how do people find that 'Zen' place inside themselves?  Perhaps you can listen to a healing frequency and allow your body to find its own way to healing rather than demanding it look like you want it to.

    Ted Winslow is the leader in the field of Sound Healing with his recordings being top hits on Amazon.  His extensive sound healing research through Electrophotonic Imaging Testing, where he works with the effects of sound on the Human Energy Field which has validated his trademarked sound healing technology -- SOUNDSYNCTECH.

    His recordings are like nothing else you have listened to.  You can play them in the background, listen with head phones or just sit with the sounds surrounding your being.  Please enjoy, I have.

    Ted's work can be found on his website and there is also a show special code 'radio' for the Angelic Sound Healing ;  www.TedWinslow.com
