Comrades, Lovers, Friends and Kin;
Welcome to republic of love: art, cultural resistance and sacred mysticism from Toronto: Huron-Wendat, 6 Nations, 3 Fires Territory or, "the City of Living Corpses" as Emma Goldman liked to say.
We're live on-air monthly on the New Moon with reviews, panels, readings and music centred on radical culture from here at home, and around the planet.
Tune into episode #3 on Thursday, October 23rd at 9pm. Broadcasting live with gratitude from Alexis Mitchell's studio in Toronto's West End. This month, we’re focusing on pain and release, release and pain, repeat. Looking, listening, feeling, watching, wailing. By loving ourselves through struggle and mourning, we find the deepest compassion we know:
- a thoughtful encounter with Sarah Abu-Sharar and 2 young participants from the Expressive Arts Camp for Palestinian Children, held at Palestine House over Thanksgiving weekend
- a conversation with Sharlene Bamboat and Amy Fung on Mentoring Artists for Women's Art's recent event: Who Counts? A Feminist Art Throwdown Symposium about art, feminism and artist-run culture
- a new feature in the Republic: oral reading of an image that’s been on my mind by Nasrin Himada, writer and film curator. Nasrin will bridge the aural and the ocular for us, describing an image of her choice in fine detail for your hungry ears to transmit to your wild imagining mind
- from the Archive: 1997's Beloved Community: bell hooks and Cornel West discuss thier respectful disagreement as the "beginning of a fuller, deeper love" in their loving, committed comradeship
- readings from Hafiz, Tara Brach and music from Cheryl L'Hirondelle, Ferguson October and more
Co-hosts Ann Whitehead Garner, Harcharan Bains and Lucy Norwood welcome Freydoon Rassouli to the upcoming broadcast.
Rassouli was raised in the continuing inspiration of the mystics since he was born. Rumi and Hafiz have been very dear to his heart throughout his life. His upcoming book is titled “Rumi Revealed,” which is going to be available at bookstores in December, a book that describes the true genius of Rumi and Rassouli is totally dedicated to opening the scope of this brilliant man’s contribution to the world in as many ways as possible.
Rassouli is an artist, an author, and one of those beings, who can be described as “a friend of the heart.” The artistic being, who is called Rassouli, is like the play of the light on earth, for he is wildly and wonderfully creative, and he has mastered his medium to free him to be as creatively expressive as possible. He guides others to open their hearts and discover the secrets there & encourages the creative path that allows them to discover the way given to them to best be able to express their uniqueness.
Rassouli is an artist flowing in the living stream and energy of the creative wonder of a true mystic. He lives spontaneously through the experience of actively manifesting stunning, surprising, and sensuous artistic visions that exalt humanity and its potential! He paints and writes and speaks and shares his visions generously with others. He has written books on creativity, collaborated with other authors and artists to share his artworks, all of which are listed on many sites dedicated to him on the internet. There are countless articles in art magazines, newspapers, and recorded interviews on radio and television.

Sessions with 'She'
This place where you are right now
God circled on a map for you.
Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move
Against the earth and the sky,
The Beloved has bowed there -
Our Beloved has bowed there knowing
You were coming.
I could tell you a priceless secret about
Your real worth, dear pilgrim,
But any unkindness to yourself,
Any confusion about others,
Will keep one
From accepting the grace, the love,
The sublime freedom
Divine knowledge always offers to you.
Never mind, Hafiz, about
The great requirements this path demands
Of the wayfarers,
For your soul is too full of wine tonight
To withhold the wondrous Truth from this world.
But because I am so clever and generous,
I have already clearly woven a resplendent lock
Of his tresses
As a remarkable truth and gift
In this poem for you.

We are all on a Spiritual Journey in life whether we know it or not. And for many of us this journey can be very daunting and quite confusing. Some people are bursting with creativity yet don't know what to do with that Creativity. Other are clear as to what to do but aren't clear as to how far to take this Creativity.
Some are born teachers, writers, and artist and while they are enjoying their careers still feel a sense of seperateness from Life and lack of personal peace within.
Well, my guest to day is Sayida Hafiz. She is author of the New Book "Parable of My Spiritual Journey". And she helps us all to break through many of the barriers that keep us blocked from living our full potential.
She does this by sharing with us her own personal Journey in life. She is a healer, Author, Vibrational Artist, teacher and so much more. Join us today for a fun and uplifting show. For more information please visit www.sayidahafiz.com

Another scholarly work contains her chapter on a controversial novel by Orhan Pamuk, the 2006 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
