    What are you doing to create a better world? Join Mitchell on A Better World

    in Culture

    Wednesday, June 25, 6pm EDT: This evening's radio show will be a call-in show with host of A Better World Radio, Mitchell Jay Rabin.

    It's about opening up consciousness to what we sense may be its next evolutionary stage, a shift to something else, so that we can begin to conceive a world of beauty, compassion and integrity, far, far different than so much of the world we have today.

    We will scan the planetary systems in place from this elevated view and see how we can intercede most effectively in this lower consciousness with a laugh or two, perhaps a tear or two, and seek to nudge the human species "upward and forward", in terms of mindfulness but beyond mindfulness, to a place of a new space of human potential, moving into the pre-frontal cortex and the heartspace of coherence where we can burst forward with appreciation, gratitude, compassion and love as we look out, from this purview, at the world we've created.

    All are invited to call in and ask questions or comment.

    Mitchell is a holistic psychotherapist, communication consultant, acupuncturist, Stress Management Consultant, Workshop leader, Host & Producer of A Better World Radio & TV, teacher, eco-entrepreneur. Mitchell has chapters in several books, such as The Code, The Fire from Heaven and The New Heart at Work. He additionally writes for Natural News and the Huffington Post.

    Cycles of Time, Cycles of Life with David Katzmire

    This evening will be a Round Table discussing Time Cycles.  We have just passed the Winter Solstice and heading toward 2016.  But time cycles last from billions of years to nano-seconds in duration.  There has been fascinating research which confirms time cycle’s effects on the Earth, human consciousness and health.  Knowing more about these cycles gives us considerable leverage with each of these, which is why the subject is so interesting and so important.

    Dave Katzmire has been on A Better World Radio & TV numerous times and is a major friend and advocate of A Better World from its beginning.  Through diligent research,Katzmire has become a self-styled scholar of history in light of both major and minor time cycles that he was able to identify.

    Purchase Mitchell’s Interview with David Katzmire on Time Cycles

    Dave said: "The vision of KalaRhythms came to me in an instant as I was captivated to embrace the concept of oneness. Such oneness may be succinctly described with the axiom that, everything is in anything. That all things must change, and for every time there is a season, tells us that the Dance of Shiva is realized in many ways.*

    *Note:  Research scientist from New Zealand, Ray Tomes was initially going to join us but due to technical difficulties, wasn't able to join us.  But will in a future show.
