    Creating Peaceful & Happy Environments 4 Children with Sharon Wikoff

    in Spirituality

    Today on the Voice of Change, Sharon Ann Wikoff, will share and discuss her parenting and classroom teachings on creating a peaceful and happy environment for children.  A foundational decision that underlies numerous other decisions for parents and educators is the choice to create such an environment...one of peacefulness and happiness!  Such a decision is essential!  Then, discovering the values you hold most dear and explore way of living and teaching those values, you do create an environment of cooperation, compassion and caring.  In addition, Sharon will discuss other factors such as:  looking at what is already working for you in the environment, the role your unique "bottom lines" play in this process and well as how challenging situations can be "moments of impact" which can create significant change.  These principals are specific enough to address present-day situations and flexible enough to use well into parenting your adult children!

    Daddy, Why Are We Different? wtih Sharon Ann Wikoff

    in Family

    NOTE:   After the first 20-25 minutes of the program, there is a period of silence.  Please fast forward about 15-20 minutes for the remainder of the program.  I'm so sorry for this inconvenience.  I will edit the program as soon as possible.  Thank you for listening! Sharon Ann Wikoff
    Today on the Voice of Change, I will share with you a story I wrote several years ago, entitled, "Daddy, Why Are We Different"?  This story is a gentle and loving story, telling a little boy of 5 why he was not circumcised, so he could look just like his Dad who was circumcised.  Circumcision has grown into a multi-million dollar business.  However, the rate of circumcisions performed in the USA has been greatly reduced over the last 4 decades, going from a 76 % rate down to a 33% rate, as parents learn that it is an unnecessary procedure, which is extremely painful and tramatic for the infants.  There is not one health organization in the world that promotes having a routine circumcision performed.  Today, more and more parents are questioning circumcision.  In addition, I'll share a remarkable story of a Jewish family who had their heart set on having their son circumcised until they learned the truth about the procedure.

    A Course of LOVE: The Follow up book to A Course in Miracles with Mari Perron

    in Spirituality

    Sharon Ann Wikoff, host of the Voice of Change, welcomes Mari Perron to the program. Mari is called the First Receiver of the book called  A Course of Love.  After having studied A Course in Miracles for two years straight and reading it through 7 times, she was given an amazing gift, the "knowing" that she was to receive the follow up book to the Course in Miracles, A Course of Love!  Some months later, the Course began coming to her and for three years she took the dictation down word for word.  Now, 17 years after she heard the first words, and fourteen years since the work was first completed as three books: the Course, Treastises, and Dialogues, A Course of Love has been republished in a 674 page combined volume. Today Mari and Sharon will share a conversation about this heart-felt book, some of the concepts within it and Mari's amazing journey in her role as First Receiver in this process.


    Mari Shares the following Overview of A Course of Love:  If we’re going to be who we are in a way that does not disregard either our humanity or our divinity, a way that does not disregard each other and the world, we need to start with our hearts. Love gives reason its foundation. Joining heart and mind in wholeheartedness, which is the aim of the first of the three books of A Course of Love, is called the first union. Through this union we are no longer divided against ourselves. A true Self replaces the ego or false self that we once viewed as ourselves, and the Treatises, the second book, leads us through that change. The third book, The Dialogues, takes us to the mountain top for a 40 Day experience of transformation, but does not leave us there. Our return to level ground symbolizes the way of incarnation, the joining of the human and divine that makes us creators of a new world.

    Healing Childhood Emotions and Traumas with Larry Kiser

    in Energy

    The Voice of Change welcomes Larry Kiser to discuss the importance of healing childhood emotions and traumas. 


    Often times as Adults we end up being run by emotional reactions to life circumstances and events and wonder afterwards why our reaction was so violent, so colored by anger or some other emotion.  Very likely these reactions stem from family culture, childhood trauma, ancestral influence and past life conditions buried in the subconscious mind.  Before we reach the age of 9 it is said we are already programed for the rest of our life unless we receive some assistance.  The child’s mind has no filter.  During this call Larry will address how these “programs” effect or life and do some clearing processes to “de-program" listeners so that moving forward in life can be easier and not run by unconscious patterns.


    Larry Kiser has worked in the healing field for over 20 years.  His practice is influenced by study and work with Russian scientists, an ex CIA operative, Mayan Elders, a Shaolin Master, the Emissaries of Divine Light, various Spiritual teachers, years of working with clients, and his own Spiritual Guides. His teaching and practice includes national and international work in the U.S., Canada, Germany, Latvia, Mexico and Hong Kong. As a former lawyer he taught classes in universities and lectured in various states.

    Teaching PEACE as a Priority to Children with educator, Sharon Ann Wikoff

    in Family

    Teaching PEACE as a Priority to Children is the topic for this program. I'm Sharon Ann Wikoff, host of the Voice of Change and delighted to be talking to you today on this subject. Recently, many books, experiences and conversations have led me to thinking more about this extremely importance topic. The book: Stop the Next War NOW edited by Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans; Deepak Chopra's book: Peace is the Way; and finally Red Grammer's musical CD Teaching Peace are some of the materials that have surfaced, calling my attention to this important subject. In addition, the essay, "The Challenge of Educating for PEACE by Joan Almon, US coordinator of the Alliance for Childhood" (www.allianceforchildhood.org) from the book, "Stop the Next War Now" played a key part in me taking a closer look at the subject of PEACE and children. Have you observed the 'games' children play on the computer or DVDs for the television or television cartoons and programming in terms of "war", "fighting", "killing" and "winning"? Recently, I unexpectedly viewed several children 5-9 years of ago using such 'games' and was shocked by their excited yells of: We got him! We killed him! He's out! and so on. Deepak Chopra opens his book, PEACE is the Way, with the statement: Today is a good day for war to come to an end. I believe that TODAY is a good day for the exposure of war games to children to come to an end! I strongly believe that parents and educators need to take a stand for Teaching PEACE as a Priority to Children, beginning TODAY! Tune in to hear more about this important subject and to learn 12 Principles for Teaching Peace to Children, in the schools and home environments.
