Linda and Charlie Bloom – That Which Doesn’t Kill Us

You meet someone, you fall in love and that deep and abiding sense of “this is the one for me” leads you to the alter. After the honeymoon, life ensues along with all of the ups and downs that everyone faces. At some point the challenges may seem unbearable; the communication with your partner breaks down and the once powerful feelings of love that brought you together seem to be slipping away. Can your relationship be saved? Is it worth saving? What path do you need to follow to answer these emotionally charged and potentially life changing questions?

My guests this week on Destination Unlimited, psychotherapist and relationship counselors Linda and Charlie Bloom, faced these questions and much more in their own relationship. Linda and Charlie have worked with individuals, couples, groups and organizations since 1975. They have lectured and taught at the Esalen Institute, the Kripalu Center, 1440 Multiversary, the California Institute Of Integral Studies, Omega Institute and many more. They have offered seminars around the world and have authored three bestselling books including 101 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Married, Simple Lessons to Make Love Last, Happily Ever After and 39 Other Myths About Love. They join me this week to discuss their new raw, open and honest book about their personal relationship challenges and how they addressed them, That Which Doesn’t Kill Us - How One Couple Became Stronger at the Broken Places.

Stefania Magidson – Searching for the White Magician

It has been said by philosophers and seers that we are “spiritual beings having a human experience.” What does that mean? If it is, in fact, true, what is our purpose and why are we here? Does it mean that within each of us is profound and timeless knowledge, the potential for doing great good and the manifestation of what is foundational to every faith and religion, loving and caring for one another?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Stefania Magidson, has lived this path. Stefania was born in Romania and immigrated with her family to the United States in 1983. She received a BS in Health Education and a Master’s in Applied Spiritual Psychology. In 2002, she founded the Blue Heron Foundation, one of the largest non-profit organizations in the Romanian Diaspora, focusing on improving the quality of life of Romanian and Moldovan orphaned youth by providing them access to life’s opportunities through merit based college scholarships. To date, the organization has raised more than $2,000,000, has awarded more than 300 scholarships and has touched the lives of more than 2,900 young people. Stefania is a supporter of the UCLA Graduate School of Education, The Everychild Foundation and many more educational and philanthropic organizations. You can find out more about her work at blueheronfoundation.org and she joins me this week to discuss her book, Searching for the White Magician, a series of dialogues where she explores themes ranging from immigration and philanthropy to spiritual psychology and self-realization.

Kiera Fogg – Crystal Gridwork

When I was seven years old in 1960, I built my first crystal radio. Made up of a galena crystal, a thin wire called a “cat’s whisker”, a coil of copper wire and a single ear piece, I was able to hear transmissions from Chicago, Canada, Tennessee and other “far- away” places. For me at seven, anyplace outside of New York was far away. That galena crystal was my magic carpet, opening my imagination and mind. My love affair with crystals amped up in my mid 30’s when my path reopened to the subtle energy that surrounds us. What is the secret of crystals and if one crystal can change your life, what about an array of crystals?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Kiera Fogg, says that arrays of crystals called grids can be used for health and wellness, abundance and prosperity, protection, love or simply for inspiration.

Kiera is a writer and speaker on modern wellness and spirituality, a certified Reiki practitioner and an entrepreneur. Her company, Little Box of Rocks, offers healing crystal collections designed to celebrate life’s most magical occasions. Her collections have been featured in goop, O, The Oprah Magazine, Vogue, People and Good Housekeeping. Her website is littleboxofrocks.com and she joins me this week to discuss her new book, Crystal Gridwork—The Power of Crystals and Sacred Geometry to Heal, Protect and Inspire.

Dr. Clare R. Johnson – Mindful Dreaming

In 1975, Justin Hayward and John Lodge of the Moody Blues created an album together called “Blue Jays.” One of the featured songs written by Hayward was entitled, “I Dreamed Last Night.” Part of the lyric read,

“Well I dreamed last night
You were calling, calling my name
You were locked inside of your secrets
Calling my name
And you told me, lost, was the key
And you told me, how you long to be free
That you don’t know how
Oh, let me show you now”

How do dreams shape our lives? What do they tell us about what has been and what we aspire to? Is there a way of “mindfully” dreaming to heal the past, clarify the present and manifest the future?

My quest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Clare R. Johnson, says there is. Clare is the leading expert on lucid dreaming. She has a PhD from the University of Leeds on using lucid dreams as a creative tool which was the first doctoral work in the world to explore this topic. A lucid dreamer herself, she is the board director of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. She regularly gives talks and leads workshops about dreaming. Her website is deepluciddreaming.com and she joins me this week to discuss her just released book, Mindful Dreaming: Harness the Power of Lucid Dreaming for Happiness, Health and Positive Change.

Diana Butler Bass – Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks

As a boy growing up in the fifties and sixties, my family stressed the importance of gratitude. My siblings and I were taught to be truly grateful for everything in our lives. My father took ill when we were very young and we did not have an easy life, but our gratitude for what we did have diminished any sense of lack or want. This same gratitude was shared by almost everyone around us.

In today’s stress filled and divided world, gratitude seems to be put aside and in some instances, forgotten. How important is it for each of us to look at our lives and feel and express genuine gratitude, both personally and as citizens of our country.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, cultural observer and theologian Diana Butler Bass says that “gratitude is central to both our personal and political lives” and “it may be the single most important spiritual practice we can engage in times of turmoil and conflict.”

Diana is the author of ten books on American religion, politics and culture and comments widely in the media about faith and public life. She holds a PhD in religious studies from Duke University, has taught at the college and graduate level, is currently an independent scholar, and teaches and preaches internationally on matters of religion and spirituality. She lives in Virginia with her family. Her website is dianabutlerbass.com and she joins me this week to discuss her new book, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks.

Monte Farber – Quantum Affirmations

You have a sense of what you want in life and yet it seems to escape you. You’ve read the books, taken the seminars and classes, done what you thought you needed to do to manifest your dreams and you are still disappointed. You may have conditioned your mind to believe that nothing will change and perhaps you are not worthy of fulfillment and happiness. Is there a way you can turn this around?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, nationally known astrologer and intuitive counselor Monte Farber says there is through the science of Quantum Affirmations.

Monte Farber’s brilliant and empathic insights impact everyone he meets. Born and reared in Brooklyn, New York, Monte has developed his own method of psychic perception, a combination of his creative channeling with street-wise spirituality, common sense, intuition, and a genuine love for the human spirit.

As best-selling author of more than forty books and tools about tapping into the wealth of spiritual guidance that is within us and all around us, he has sold more than two million copies around the world in fourteen languages. Living in the exclusive Hamptons area of Long Island, New York, he has personally counseled many of the celebrities and business elite who know him as “The Best Astrologer in The Hamptons”.

His remarkable insights and down-to-earth advice have been endorsed by leading visionary authors and company executives who use his unique skills as part of their important decision-making mix. In his work and workshops, he shares with his clients and audience the kindness, good humor, and deep wisdom that has enabled him to find true love with his wife and collaborator of 40 years, artist Amy Zerner, along with prosperity, spirituality, contentment and genuine success.

His work has been featured on FOX, ABC, Oxygen, We, Lifetime and in the New York Times

Robert Kopecky – How to Get to Heaven (Without Really Dying)

Most people believe that you must die to get to heaven, but those who have suffered near-death experiences tell a different tale; our quest for happiness and peace can be found while we’re alive. Although we might feel lost at times, our internal, authentic selves truly know why we’re here. Living through difficulties is part of growing into our authentic selves. The secret is in not allowing life to live you, but in knowing what drives you and choosing to live life on your own terms.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, award winning illustrator, art director and animator Robert Kopecky, knows this well. Robert had three near death experiences, and with each gained insight and perspective on living our best life in this life now. Robert explores and teaches about the lessons he learned. He shared his experiences in his first book, How to Survive Life (and Death), and blogs at BeliefNet, The Mindful Word, and Soul Life Times. He joins me this week to discuss his new book, How to Get to Heaven (Without Really Dying).

Arielle Ford – Your Holiness: Discover the Light Within

Every generation has its thought leaders who leave an indelible mark on the world. Born of their personal pain, experience and life lessons, these leaders rise to bring wisdom and light so that others may benefit, heal and grow. Our generation was blessed with the enduring wisdom and presence of Debbie Ford.

Debbie was a New York Times best-selling author of ten books. Her first masterpiece, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people by showing them how to embrace their shadow selves and find wholeness. Followed by groundbreaking books including Spiritual Divorce, Secret of the Shadow, The Right Questions, Why Good People Do Bad Things and the Best Year of Your Life, Debbie’s literary legacy was thought to be completed with her transition in February 2013.

But death was not the end of sharing wisdom for the determined Debbie and her magic continued when her beloved sister, Arielle Ford, was mystically guided to bring to fruition a book that Debbie wrote sometime in the last years of her earthly adventure.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited is my dear friend Arielle Ford. She joins us to share the story of her sister’s amazing life and afterlife. Arielle is the best-selling the author of The Soulmate Secret, Wabi Sabi Love and Turn Your Mate into your Soulmate. She is also renowned for her work helping to launch the best-selling careers of Deepak Chopra, Maryanne Williamson, Neale Donald Walsch and of course, her little sister Debbie Ford. She joins me this week to discuss Debbie’s “heaven sent” book, Your Holiness—Discover the Light Within.

Dr. Danny Penman – The Art of Breathing

It’s something that we do thousands of times a day without thinking about it. We do it from seconds after birth until our final moment of life. It gets faster when we exercise and slower when we rest. We may hold this underwater and for certain medical test. Extraordinary beauty has been said to take this away. This gift of life is our breath and learning to use it mindfully can promote health, stress reduction, a deeper understanding of ourselves and peace.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Danny Penman, knows well the value of both breathing and mindfulness. Danny is a feature and comment writer for the UK’s Daily Mail and has worked for The Independent and the BBC. He is co-author with Mark Williams of the international best-seller Mindfulness. He joins me this week to discuss his new, beautiful and breathtaking book, The Art of Breathing: The Secret of Living Mindfully.
