Emma Toynbee – Positively Tarot

Aired Wednesday, 22 May 2019, 8:00 PM ET

In 1980, The Alan Parsons Project released an album with the title song, “The Turn of A Friendly Card.” The Alan Parsons / Eric Woolfson lyric said, in part,

“There are unsmiling faces in fetters and chains
On a wheel in perpetual motion
Who belong to all races and answer all names
With no show of an outward emotion
And they think it will make their lives easier
But the doorway before them is barred
And the game never ends when your whole world depends
On the turn of a friendly card”

The song may have referred to gambling and also the eternal “cards” we are dealt when we enter this existence. What is truly “in the cards” for each of us. Can the art of reading the Tarot give us the insight, guidance and direction necessary to make changes and improve our lives?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, professional tarot reader Emma Toynbee, says the tarot can provide all-important answers to the many questions of life. Emma Toynbee is a professional metaphysician, clairvoyant reader, astrologer and fine artist trained at St. Martins in London. She studied and has previously taught at the London College of Psychic Studies and runs a London-based practice in Liverpool Street, London. She makes regular appearances at high profile PR and corporate events as a professional tarot reader, most recently at Amazon and Google events. She lives in London, England, and her website is emmatoynbee.com. She joins me this week to discuss her story and her new book, Positively Tarot – A Modern Guide to Mindful Living.

Tom Bunn – Panic Free: The Ten Day Program to End Panic, Anxiety and Claustrophobia

Aired Wednesday, 15 May 2019, 8:00 PM ET

Are you afraid of flying? Does the thought of driving through a tunnel frighten you? What about getting into an elevator, being in a small, confined space or even exploring your closets? Are there situations that cause you panic, anxiety, claustrophobia and dread? If so, you are one of the estimated six million Americans who suffer from panic disorder. You may have sought relief with psychotherapy and even medications, only to find that these did not alleviate your symptoms. Is there another way of approaching this debilitating problem and opening your life to fully experiencing everything it has to offer?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Tom Bunn, says there is and you can achieve this in just ten days without drugs or doctors. Tom Bunn is a licensed therapist and a regular contributor to Psychology Today. He is a former U. S. Air Force Captain who flew the Air Force’s first supersonic jet fighter, the F-100. Following his service, he was an airline pilot during which time he began examining and addressing flight panic. His further work and research led him to a greater understanding of the neuro mechanisms of panic and anxiety and the development of his program. His website is panicfree.net and he joins me this week to discuss his new book, Panic Free: The Ten Day Program to End Panic, Anxiety and Claustrophobia.

Kim Russo – Your Soul Purpose

Aired Wednesday, 8 May 2019, 8:00 PM ET

There are questions as old as the first human developed the ability to ask them. “Why are we here on this earth?” “Does life have significance and meaning?” “Are there lessons we’ve come to learn?” “Is there a higher purpose for all of us to aspire to?” Answering these questions is difficult for most of us but my guest this week on Destination Unlimited, world famous psychic medium Kim Russo, possesses a unique gift that allows here to see what many of us cannot.

Kim Russo, known around the world as “The Happy Medium,” starred on Lifetime Movie Network’s popular show, The Haunting Of… , and speaks annually at hundreds of presentations across the United States. In her first book, The Happy Medium, she shared how at a very young age, she realized that she could communicate with the dead and offered lessons from her experience.

In her brand new book, Your Soul Purpose—How to Access the Light Within, she guides us to embrace love, let go of fear and discover the spiritual tools we already possess to find the deeper meaning of our existence and fulfill our destiny.

Rabbi Joshua Hammerman – Mensch-Marks

Aired Wednesday, 1 May 2019, 8:00 PM ET

We are all human begins. We live in a time when our humanity seems to be tested on an almost daily basis. Recent violent attacks on people of faith from many religions in many lands anger us, sadden us, befuddle us and leave us asking the eternal question, “Why”? What can each of us individually and collectively do to turn this around, find our common humanity, bring light where there is darkness and love where there is hate? How may we express in our daily lives the ideal that is found in the basic tenets of virtually every faith, to love our neighbors as ourselves?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Rabbi Joshua Hammerman, refers us to the ancient Jewish oral law called the Talmud which says, “In a world that lacks humanity, be human.” Rabbi Hammerman is the spiritual leader of Temple Beth El in Stamford, Connecticut. He is a regular contributor to The New York Jewish Week, The Times of Israel, The Jewish Telegraphic Agency and The Religion News Service. His personal essays have appeared in the New York Times Magazine and The Washington Post. He is the winner of the 2018 Religion News Association Award for Excellence in Commentary. He has served as the president of the Interfaith Council of Southwestern Connecticut, The Stamford Board of Rabbis and as Chaplain for the Stamford Police Department. He is a rabbi, journalist, father, husband, Red Sox fan and an aspiring mensch.

He joins me this week to discuss his story and his just released book, Mensch-Marks—Life Lessons of a Human Rabbi.

Dr. Heather Lynn – Evil Archaeology

Aired Wednesday, 24 April 2019, 8:00 PM ET

I launched Destination Unlimited because of my life-long fascination with both science and spirituality and how these two disciplines intersect. Archeology is the science that studies human history through the excavation of ancient sites and the analysis of artifacts found at those sites. Some of those sites and the artifacts found within them have had curses, possession and other negative entities attributed to them. Is this real? Can the archaeological record prove the existence of demons and malevolent entities?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Heather Lynn, is an expert in this field and what she has to share may surprise you! Heather Lynn is a true Renaissance Woman with multiple accomplishments in many fields. She is an author, historian, and renegade archaeologist, on a quest to uncover the truth behind ancient mysteries. She holds numerous degrees and certificates in both history and archaeology and is a member of professional organizations, including: the American Historical Association, the Society for Historical Archaeology (SHA), Association of Ancient Historians, and the World Archaeological Congress. She left a life in academia to pursue her fascination with the unexplained and now investigates ancient mysteries, lost civilizations, hidden history, ancient aliens, and the occult. Heather’s work exposes our hidden history, challenging the accepted narrative found in mainstream history books. In addition to appearances on radio programs like Coast to Coast AM and Fade to Black, Heather has been a historical consultant for television programs, including History’s Ancient Aliens. In her spare time, she plays the French horn in a local symphony orchestra whose performances raise money to provide art and cultural education to low-income communities. She loves tennis, classical music, and a good cup of tea.

Her website is www.drheatherlynn.com and she joins me this week to discuss her new book, Evil Archaeology: Demons, Possessions and Sinister Relics.

Imagine this. You’re a woman of a certain age. You’ve enjoyed a very successful career, having a wonderful family and the flow of life seems just perfect. Suddenly, your career is no more and you begin to doubt yourself and whether at “your certain age” you have the wherewithal to start anew. At your lowest point, something mystical and wonderful happens and it opens your mind and heart to the realization that you can lift yourself up and fly once again!

The story I just shared was lived by my guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Wendi Knox. Wendi was an award-winning Creative Director at one of the largest advertising agencies in Los Angeles but like many of us at mid-life, her soul was longing for something more. Suddenly, at age 50 she lost her job and began questioning whether she was too old to reinvent her life. She asked the universe for a sign and she got it!

Wendi shares her experience through her uplifting blog, creative workshops, inspirational speeches, and private sessions. She’s a regular contributor to Maria Shriver’s Architects of Change and was featured on Rita Wilson’s Voice of Strength Series on The Huffington Post. Wendi is grateful for her husband Will, son Landon, fur-baby Blossom and the magic of living in beautiful Ojai, California. She joins me this week to share her story and her just published book, From Muck to Magic - An Uplifting Journey.

Shai Tubali – The Seven Chakra Personality Types

Aired Wednesday, 20 January 2019, 8:00 PM ET

Chakra is a lovely word derived from Sanskrit and usually translated as wheel or disc. Referring to the spinning wheels of energy or light making up the subtle body, each chakra is associated with an aspect of body, mind and spirit. Meditation on the Chakras promotes health, balance and peace. Do the chakras also relate to our personalities, our relationships with others and the way we see ourselves in the world?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Shai Tubali, says there is a direct correlation between each of the seven major chakras and our personalities.

Shai Tubali is an author, speaker and innovator in the field of inner transformation and personal development. He is a leading authority in the field of self-development and self-empowerment. In his writings and teachings, he skillfully combines psychology, philosophy, Yogic traditions and Eastern thought and practices, into powerful processes of inner transformation. Shai has lives in Berlin where he runs the Human Greatness Center. At his center, he leads yearly schools and holds seminars, training, and talks, all broadcast online drawing participants from around the world. Born in Israel in 1976, Shai became an active journalist and columnist in Israel’s major newspapers and one of its leading radio stations. His writing career started at the age of 19, where he became nationally recognized as a novelist. Though he is mainly dedicated to direct guidance, he has never neglected his artistic passions. His latest creation is as a filmmaker, writing and directing his first short film, “After The Future”. He is the author of several best-selling books and joins me this week to discuss his latest work, The Seven Chakra Personality Types.

Mallika Chopra – Just Breathe: Meditation, Mindfulness, Movement, and More

When my generation was growing up in the late fifties and early sixties, we seemed to live in simpler times. Without the distraction of social media, smart phones and video games, we spent a lot of time engaging in physical activity, reading for school and for pleasure and enjoying the neighborhoods and world around us.

Today’s kids face different challenges. Bombarded with digital communication, upsetting messages from media, social pressure and even bullying, children are facing stress and feeling overwhelmed. What can parents do to help their children learn to de-stress, relax and turn their minds to positivity? My very special guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Mallika Chopra, says the answer is to meditate and “Just Breathe.”

A wellness expert and daughter of Deepak Chopra, Mallika learned to meditate when she was nine years old. Her two daughters, ages fifteen and twelve, also practice meditation. Drawing on their experiences and her own, she wrote JUST BREATHE: Meditation, Mindfulness, Movement and More, a fun and easy guide to meditation for kids. Mallika is the author of Living with Intent, 100 Promises to My Baby and 100 Questions from My Child. She is a busy mom, a sought-after speaker and the founder of Intent.com. She lives in Santa Monica, California, and joins me to discuss her beautifully illustrated and easy to follow book for children 8 to 12, JUST BREATHE: Meditation, Mindfulness, Movement and More.
