Lily Sanders - Truth to Triumph
Where are you in your life right now? How much of your life was pre-patterned by your childhood experience, your relationship with your parents and family and how your young mind, heart and soul were shaped by that relationship? Was there joy and security or pain, fear and uncertainty? Are you re-experiencing those patterns in your adult relationships and are they positive, loving and affirming or something else?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Lily Sanders, grew up in a domestically violent home, and used ballet class as her sanctuary. That became a springboard to a successful career as a dancer, TV and film actress, Broadway performer and later successful multiple franchise owner. But domestic abuse followed her long into adulthood, risking her life and that of her son…until she took the steps to learn to love herself unconditionally and connect with the Source power of love. Today, she is a highly successful coach in New York helping women live fully empowered, happy lives. She joins me this week to discuss her experiences and book, Truth to Triumph: A Spiritual Guide to Finding Your Truth.

Nick Redfern - The Slenderman Mysteries
Growing up in the fifties and sixties in Brooklyn, New York, I often heard stories…stories that today would be called “urban legends”…about evil beings and people. Often told by older kids, camp counselors and some adults, these stories were designed to frighten, perhaps intimidate and most definitely nurture nightmares. These were the pre-digital, pre-cyberspace days, and story-telling was a verbal art form. With the advent of the internet, apps and social media, the dissemination of these stories has become immediate, widespread, and sometimes with profound and tragic results.
Such is the story of The Slenderman, a character birthed as a “creepypasta” internet meme in 2009 that not only frightened young imaginations but resulted in the tragic stabbing of a 12 year old girl by two classmates in 2014. Is Slenderman a modern phenomenon or does it go much deeper historically and in our psyches?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited is Nick Redfern. Nick is the author of more than 40 books on the strange, mysterious and unexplained. He has appeared on more than seventy television shows including Ancient Aliens, America’s Book of Secrets, The Unexplained Files and UFO Hunters. His website is http://nickredfernfortean.blogspot.com/ and he joins me this week to talk all things mysterious and discuss his new book, The Slenderman Mysteries: An Internet Urban Legend Comes to Life.

Debra Silverman - The Missing Element
Valentine’s Day…love is in the air! This Roman pagan festival, turned day of remembrance of two Christian martyrs named Valentine by the Church, was romanticized by Shakespeare and Chaucer in their works and turned into the Hallmark Holiday that we know and love (or dread) in 1913. Each year more than 144 million Valentine cards are exchanged, making it the second largest greeting card holiday, not to mention flowers, chocolates, jewelry and other tokens of affection. Projections are that 18.2 billion dollars will have been spent in the United States alone when this day is over! While love may be in the air, many ask, is love in their stars? Is there a connection between romantic compatibility and our birth and progressive astrological charts?
Joining me this week on Destination Unlimited to address this question and other matters astrological is Debra Silverman. Debra is part comedienne, part psychologist, part astrologer and All Real! She helps people turn on their own inner observer to see the things they say and do in a totally objective way. In private practice for more than 38 years, Debra uses astrology and her own system called “The 4 Elements” or “4E” for short as tools to help people step into their own power. She’s the author of The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition, numerous columns, hosted her own radio show and her YouTube channel has more than 3 million views! Her websites are: thestarcommunity.com and debrasilvermanastrology.com

Linda Kohanov - The Five Roles of a Master Herder
We live in a world of complicated relationships. Professionally and personally, these relationships are driven by the traits each of us brings to them and the roles we assume. With disparate approaches to these relationships, problem solving, team building and progress may be difficult to achieve without a deeper understanding of the part each of us play. Is there an older, deeper, and simpler form of wisdom that we can call upon to better define our roles and succeed in both the work place and personal life?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Linda Kohanov, says there is and it comes from good old-fashioned “horse sense.” Linda is beloved for her groundbreaking articulation of “the way of the horse,” an experiential wisdom known to riders for centuries but little studied or adapted for off-horse use. Linda has used this new model with executive teams at such companies as Nike, Chub Insurance and Raytheon. She is the author of The Power of the Herd and bestseller, The Tao of Equus and speaks and teaches internationally. She established Eponaquest Worldwide to explore the healing potential of working with horses and offers programs on everything from emotional and social intelligence, leadership, stress reduction and parenting consensus to build mindfulness. Her website is eponaquest.com and she joins me this week to discuss her new book, The Five Roles of a Master Herder—A Revolutionary Model for Socially Intelligent Leadership.

Sarah Bamford Seidelmann - Swimming with Elephants
Imagine this scenario. You come from a long line of physicians. You follow the family tradition, study medicine and practice for twenty years. But something is missing. Something does not feel right. Something does not feel good about what you are doing and the way you are doing it. You take a leave from your practice, a leap of faith and venture out to find a different approach to healing those you are called to work with and ultimately, heal yourself.
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Sarah Bamford Seidelmann, actually lived this story. Sarah is a fourth-generation physician turned shamanic healer and life coach, who deeply enjoys shenanigans! She’s a frequent blogger at Maria Shriver’s site for Architects of Change and has led sold-out retreats combining surfing and shamanism in Hawaii and a sacred pachydermal pilgrimage to Thailand. She loves to help others find their “feel good” so they can live courageously and enthusiastically. Her website is followyourfeelgood.com and she joins me this week to discuss her book, Swimming with Elephants – My Unexpected Pilgrimage from Physician to Healer.

Ira Israel - How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult
In 1985, the group ‘Til Tuesday composed and recorded their hit song, “Voices Carry.” As adults, many if not all of us “carry voices.” What I mean by that is within our memories, we store the voices and words of parents, relatives, care givers, teachers and others that left an impression upon us as children. As we strive for success and happiness in life, some of those recorded voices play back in our psyche with words like, “not good enough,” “not pretty enough,” “stupid,” “too fat,” “too skinny,” and other charged expressions that may interfere with the life we aspire too. Some of these recollections may be complete and real and some may be colored by perceptions that we embellished them with as life ensued. How can we move passed these old programs and live a true, authentic and joy filled life?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, psychotherapist Ira Israel, says we can and in doing so, accept who we really are, find our true calling and discover the path to authentic love that is our birthright. Ira is a licensed marriage and family therapist and professional clinical counselor. He holds advanced degrees in psychology, philosophy and religious studies. His DVD series including A Beginners Guide to Happiness and Mindfulness for Depression along with his sold out Esalen workshops have given him a wide international following. He joins me this week to discuss his new book, How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You’re an Adult: A Path To Authenticity and Awakening.
