    Upward Bound with Down Syndrome

    in Lifestyle

    With Featured Guest:   Shandra Lumsden-Umazar, Proud parent of a college graduate with Down Syndrome

    "It's hard to get motivated when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. That was how I felt when my daughter was born 30+ years ago. . Yes, I focused on things that she could do, but I also mixed them up with all the things that she couldn't do at that moment and all the things she wouldn't be able to do in the future such as having friends, dating and going to the prom, graduating and going to college."

     Join us as Shandra shares parts of her journey, and principles of successfully parenting  a child with "differ-abilities"  in the areas of social skills, family integration, and education.

    Recovering from "Dumbing Down" Syndrome

    in Spirituality


    a thank you to those who tuned into the last show "Sleeping with Vampires".

     We had a nice discussion and a few have decided to do the recommended spiritual bath to clear old negative energy! Congrats!
    Tonight we will look into what makes a person "dumb down", where it starts, the journey of living unauthentically and how to regain lost power.
    I am doing this show because during my sessions with clients, I can visually see in one's aura, a time in their lives when  light was hidden under a bushel. Usually from that point, the quality of life diminishes and one's destiny is compromised
    Of course all is never lost!
    In my opinon, there are more remedies than ailments if we just find the courage and strength to search and apply.
    After we have our discussion, the phone lines will be open for live comments and questions.
    Also if you would like a short aura reading with insructions on how to up-play your strengths, please call
    in and remember to hit the "1" key. Touching the 1 key lets me know you would like to talk.

    APR--Down Syndrome and Air Pollution. Episode 10

    in Psychology

    To cancel this morning show because I missed a few interesting key points and for a better title, in hopes of a listener's better understanding of Down Syndrome. During the show, jory will go on an internet excursion to see if anything backs up his theory on whether or not the genetic disorder has been brought on by common air pollution, over the past 25 years. So, has the increase of the common activity of driving cars over the past 25 years a contributing factor? Listen and then you decide.
