Cafe Sol Radio, a place to relax and explore alternative ideas about who we are and why we matter.
I love cafés, don’t you? Coffee and conversation, a good read, and a little quiet time for myself. I meet friends and other interesting people in cafés and I almost always learn or discover something new.
In this first program, I’d like to share a few thoughts on alternative wisdom and what it means. Conventional wisdom is well and good, but you may be more interested in a modern approach to living a happier, more fulfilling life – something a little unconventional?
We’re also going to look at the rise and fall of progressive movements like the New Age – how they begin and why they end. Seems like a good time to ask who arouses our interest, and what inspires us to support a cause, follow a leader, or even join a revolution.
Check out this video to see how to start a movement in less than 5minutes!

Online dating was once the wave of the future, and it is still one of the best ways to meet potential partners. But anyone who has experienced it for themselves would probably agree -- it has as many pros as cons. Enter Concierge Dating, Modern-Day Matchmaking, Online Dating Management, Image Consulting, and a host of other full-service relationship experts to improve your chances of finding that special someone. Before you dismiss it as the next fad, listen to this: matchmaking is now (again) the method of choice for those who desire a more unique, organic and personal experience.
The premise behind hiring a professiional matchmaker is a sound one. It assumes we are busy with our life and career, raising children and furthering our education. We are accustomed to working with professionals who bring specialized expertise to our life such as tax preparers, computer technicians and contractors, so why not hire an expert for one of the most important decisions of our life -- the quest to find love and success in a personal relationship?
My special guest on Café Sol Radio this month helps individuals to better understand what and who they are looking for so they can live life more happily and completely. Meet Jamie Leigh, a professional modern-day matchmaker with a very successful track record.

Does you happiness depend upon old beleifs that are no longer valid? Are your ideas about Love still current? If we stopped for just a moment and put our busy lives on hold, would we be able to answer these questions?
My special guest, Betsy Chasse, co-creator behind the sleeper hit, What The Bleep Do We Know, asked herself these and other questions and came up with some surprising answers. She wrote a book about it called, Tipping Sacred Cows, and I can't wait to hear more. Betsy also promised to share a few tidbits about the sequel to the What The Bleep movie due later this year.
Small Warning: Betsy is very outspoken on certain subjects and her language reflects it. Love that Blogtalk Radio doesn't restrict, censor or bleep. Hope you do too.
Our Let's Stir Things Up segment takes a look at how we're doing with recycling all that paper and plastic -- are we making progress at preserving our planet's resources or losing the battle? Are we more or less aware than we were 10 years ago?
Finally, a few helpful details about the year ahead -- last Sunday was the first day of the Tibetan New Year, and we have just enetered the year of the (male) Water Horse!

Welcome to our annual money issue. Or better put, a look at our collective issues about money. Will more money make us feel happier and more secure? Is material success the ultimate yardstick by which we measure our value and self-worth? I don’t think so!
Our relationship with money is mostly unconscious. One expert I consulted says that our money scripts run night and day at such a deep level that we don’t even understand the influence they have on us. But we can find them and change our relationship with them by paying attention to a few simple and subtle clues.
Are you a member of the “I’ll Be Happy When” club, or the “Only If I Win the Lottery” club? Do you love, hate, want or need money? Take my money quiz and find out how healthy your relationship with money is. Financial health is having a conscious and purposeful relationship with money that is satisfying and isn’t overly stressful. Sounds good to me!
Our relationship with money is a love story, complete with ups and downs and twists and turns. We become enamored with it. We’re in love. We hate its guts and swear we’ll never spend it or waste it on “xyz” again. We fight. We make up. We beat ourselves up over it and impose stricter guidelines. We let go too fast or hold on too long. Sound familiar?
Did you know that your favorite sleep position also reveals some pretty interesting facts about your relationship with money? Can’t wait to share them with you!
Join me for an insightful and humorous look at our money-crazed, consumer-driven society.

A recent study reported that most adults feel lucky to have one friend that they can count on, but rarely more than that. Wow! We live in a society that has thousands of Facebook friends, social circles and more. The study asked the participants to differentiate true friends from acquaintances, friendly co-workers and online “friends” and that is where some of the major distinctions began to emerge.
This month our Stir Things Up segment takes a look at friends versus frenemies; potential friends who may also be rivals or even enemies in disguise. How many close friends can you count? Are you lucky enough to have more than one and beat the average? I hope so!
My special guest this month is Dr. Ruth L. Miller, an eclectic scholar with multiple degrees in the sciences, social sciences, and the ministry. She is also the editor of The Library of Hidden Knowledge book series, a modern reinterpretation of the best spiritual thought, philosophy and esoteric writing from the 19th and 20th centuries – original works that are either out of print, difficult to find, forgotten, or missing from bookstores and public libraries.
The series invites us to discover the original inspiration behind the most progressive spiritual teachers and leaders of that time, easily connecting the past with the present and bringing new life and understanding to the content.
Check out the books in the series (I own them all) and join me for an in-depth and lively discussion with Dr. Ruth Miller.

Why is it so much easier to love others than our selves? Is learning to love our selves more an acquired skill?
Self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-love are positively associated with satisfaction, happiness, optimism, curiosity, learning goals, social connectedness and emotional resilience.
My special guest this month helps individuals and couples to connect more deeply and honestly with their ideal selves, therapeutically aligning them with a more authentic life.
We’re going to be talking to Jennifer Downs about specific techniques that can help us to live more genuinely, comfortable in our skin. Thinking positively is great, neutralizing negative thoughts is too, but there is so much more we can do.
In addition to her work with individuals, Jennifer also counsels couples and teaches classes on a variety of subjects. She has promised to share some insights from these classes, such as what couples who stay together do differently than those who don’t.
Please join me for another great edition of Café Sol Radio. As always, if you can’t listen LIVE, download the broadcast later or tune-in on your favorite device.

This month we're taking a look at the body/mind/spirit connection and asking, how can we keep this bond from separating or dissolving? What can we do to sustain a mindful, deeper awareness throughout our day? And collectively, can we help others do the same?
My special guest is Keenan Lewis, a Los Angeles based certified personal trainer, professional MMA fighter, spiritual warrior, adventurer and life coach. He uses a self-developed body, mind, and spirit approach to help his clients achieve optimal physical results and success in various aspects of life. Only 23 years old, Keenan has already traveled to many countries where he is known as a motivator and teacher of young athletes, building confidence and self-esteem along with skill and technique. Keenan upholds the tradition of the non-aggressive spiritual warrior and teaches young athletes how to do the same. Contact Keenan through Facebook.
We're going to be talking with Keenan about the rites and passages associated with being a spiritual warrior and why young men and women are embracing these traditions again. Peaceful social change and a move away from generic jobs and futures is a priority for our youth, and the non-aggressive path of the spiritual warrior seems to be a key.
Our Stir Things Up segment includes a look at bold new trends for 2014, including a host of new terms to describe them - guiltwashing, crowd-shaping, and mychiatry just to name a few - I'm saving the best for last, so remember to tune-in.

Welcome to a special edition of Cafe Sol Radio, a mini-seminar about how to live an Authentic Life.
Living authentically is something we all desire, yet we often imagine it is beyond our grasp or only available to others. Anyone can live an authentic life, and we all deserve one!
Living authentically happens when we find correspondence between our inner world – feelings, values, needs, passions and spirituality – and the outer world of jobs, relationships, home and community. An authentic life supports both.
Are you comfortable in your life? Does it feel as if it is yours or more like you are walking beside it or trying to catch up to it? Most of us live a diminished or mis-matched version of the life we imagine.
Authenticity gives us courage, dignity, a deeper understanding of what it means to be human, a feeling of true place or belonging. Living authentically feels settled and centered – it boosts our natural confidence and supports an ongoing, reliable connection to our inner wisdom – even in the midst of this intense world we live in.
We can learn about anything, including ourselves, by asking the right questions. The right questions are sometimes hard to answer, but very worthwhile. Who better to answer these questions than the only person who has ever lived your life from the inside out? Who better than the only person who knows your thoughts, emotions, insights and sensations, right?
Liet's get started!

We all wonder about our dreams – where they come from, what they mean and even why we dream. My very special guest, best-selling author and dream expert, Kelly Sullivan Walden, says dreams have a language all their own—and being fluent in that language reveals the wisdom to live the life of your dreams while you’re awake.

And don't miss my new Let's Stir Things Up segment as we take a look behind the scenes of Wikipedia. Is it really just an unbiased contemporary online encyclopedia? Ever wonder who edits those pages and why? Let's find out!

Have you ever been hypnotized or tried hypnotherapy to modify or enhance habits? Explored past lives or solutions for unwanted conditions? I have and I am a big fan!
Practical hypnosis is very different than the stage acts many of us have seen or heard about. It uses the wisdom of the subconscious mind to accomplish tasks that are more difficult for the conditioned conscious mind. Athletes, artists and writers, medical professionals, and various therapies are exploring the many benefits of hypnosis, with more to follow as science and other related fields embrace its possibilities.
Harnessing the power of our creative brain is a hot topic these days and hypnosis can help. Hypnotherapy is a supportive, transformative technique that makes use of the opportunity presented by the thinking mind when it is quiet and relaxed. Sounds great, but is it really possible? Let's find out.
Join me in welcoming Rochelle Jaffe, Certified Hypnotherapist and Director of the Ashland School of Hypnotherapy. Rochelle will explain how hypnotism works, dispel some misconceptions (no, we can't be forced to do anything against our will) and reveal some important, everyday benefits.
Have related questions or comments? Need help and think hypnosis can help? Suggestions for future programs? Write to me at email@example.com asap to have it considered for the show.
