    Convergence with John Carosella

    in Spirituality

    John Carosella hosts Convergence, a journey into shamanism, science, and mysticism, exploring our beautiful world. Making the mystical accessible to the scientific-minded, and bringing the language of science to the Mystery, John brings provocative, new perspectives to living, learning, healing, and discovery.


    This month, John is in Spirited Conversation with Charles Randall Paul, founder of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy and chairman of The World Table. John and Randall discuss Randall's work and perspectives in cultivating conversations between people with fundamentally conflicting views on deeply held, even sacred, beliefs. Not just restricted to religion, this challenge is in our politics, our communities, even in our families and intimate relationships. How does one navigate these challenging waters? Perhaps a new understanding of Love is called for. (Full disclosure: John is also affiliated with The World Table.)


    John challenges his co-hosts Mildred Lynn McDonald and HiC Luttmers with this very thing - a different definition of love that willingly encourages - even desires - to be influenced by another. "Love they Enemy", anyone?


    Join us for Convergence on Firefly Willows L*I*V*E!

  • Military Monday with John D. Gresham and USNI Press Author Capt. Peter Hayes

    in Military

    Maritime Strategy has really been an American concern over the past century or so, as the United States began to develop its own worldwide empire and interests. It would be World War II and the Cold War that followed before the United States really began to become a dominant force at sea. However, since the end of the Cold War, America has lacked a cohesive maritime strategy, as US diplomacy and military operations haven't jumped from crisis to crisis. So as the United States prepares to elect a new president in 2016, it is well worth considering what sort of maritime strategy America wants as it moves into the middle of the 21st century.


    To learn more about new developments in 21st century maritime strategy, tune into this week's Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author Capt. Peter Haynes, USN (@haynes_pd) to discuss his new book, Towards a New Maritime Strategy. His new book is a study of how America has developed and implemented maritime strategy over the past hundred years, and where it is probably headed in the next few decades.
