The Gist of Freedom is asking you to join us as we support Dr. Nathan Hare and his wife as they struggle with Alzheimer's. http://www.gofundme.com/Let-Her-Be-Free
"Dr. Julia Hare has been living with Alzheimer’s for several years and was she was recently diagnosed with the End Stage of the condition. Her health providers refused to treat her on an outpatient basis without confinement ( if you are determined to leave and expressly “go home,” they label you a “wanderer” and lock the door. When I would go to see her in her locked situation, at the end of the visiting hour I would have to conspire with the staff to distract her in order for me to ease out the door and slip away without her. On the other side of the slamming door, secured by the loud click of the prison-like lock, I would hear her realizing my exit and banging on the door and calling my namel.”
I took a physician and a lawyer as well as a retired judge and with me and went out and brought her home. Almost as soon as we got home she was getting better.
Although most of her medical costs are now being paid by her health insurance company, the cost of caregivers is staggering and relentless.
Four years ago when we were undeniably blindsided by this diabolical and incurable condition, several persons suggested that I let it be known and accept donations to help preserve the freedom and dignity of the proud and inimitable lady I promised, fifty-seven years ago, to protect and “To Love and to Cherish”.
I am now following their advice and posting this donation request. Although we are advised by the Good Book to share and share alike, keep in mind that it’s the little things that count and, as one of Aesop's fables reminds us, no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."

Leslie features AKATHA (ae' kuh tuh), the Ancient Science of Sahaji. Sahaji is the original derivation as the one Higher Sanskrit word for the English phrases Soul or Spirit Travel, Out-of-Body Experience (OBE), Soul movement, etc. Practicing Sahaji will gain one the SRAOSHA (Spirit) Mastery level of their life as Leslie has also achieved. Further, in Sahaji, initially before mastery within as Soul, one passes into higher levels of consciousness towards this mastery and beyond. At the point of achieving the fifth dimension inwardly traveling through the first four lower planes, one achieves the first goal of AKATHA. That major goal is Self-Realization, the plane of liberation as Soul, the Light and Sound within one. This Sound Current, sometimes called the "SRAOSHA Life Stream," is very uplifting and heard as a high electrical pitch. This high pitch has one now ecstatically experiencing and realizing perhaps for the first time in the life, the experience as Soul, the essence of man. On the show, Leslie interviews the leader of AKATHA, The Mahaji, the 973rd Living SRAOSHA Master. This foremost evolved human is the highest central master in the universe of the longest unbroken line of Spiritual Masters called The Order of the Vairagi. He teaches the way of AKATHA to the ready Soul who may then take the next step onto the path. The membership is free along with all materials and seminars whilst contributions and donations are not accepted. Without charging shows the motive is pure by the path of AKATHA to give out the purest message of Sahaji. No thought can be then that the Living Master is just out to make a living from his teaching. Therefore, please come and join us in our pure motive for a joyfully inspirational vibrationally uplilfting thirty minute experience. Feel the essense of SRAOSHA perhaps for the first time in this life.

In this episode, we speak with Leslie Carrington who has an unusual modality, she reduces the stress and burden on wellness practitioners that come about from staging,promoting and marketing Wellness Workshops and Wellness Retreats. The workshops are here in NYC while the retreats are in various exotic locations such as Jamaica,a Greek island, and South America. Leslie’s interest in many forms of wellness started early in life as she was raised in Guyana, South America and would be given natural remedies from the garden to deal with any illness. Later, in the United States, she worked for 15 years as a social worker working with children and their families and found the stress to be intense. This led her to look into natural wellness here and sparked her interest in helping wellness practitioners to produce and promote workshops and retreats. She not only loves her work, but also finds she has much less stress in her life.
