Interview with Dr. Len Saputo, Integrative Medicine Pioneer and Author of “A Return to Healing: Radical Health Care Reform and the Future of Medicine”

“Re COVID, we can use an injection of sanity.” — Swami Beyondananda

Here is a piece of information that seems to be getting buried in all the “good news” about vaccine availability: Are you aware of the COVID survival rates for the various age groups?

Here goes:

Under age 20 … 99.997% survival rate
Age 20-49 … 99.98 % survival rate
Age 50-69 … 99.5 % survival rate
Over 70 … 95% survival rate

The vaccines have not been approved or licensed by the FDA, only authorized for emergency use. The vaccines don’t promise full immunity, and there can be side effects. Meanwhile, measures for prevention and treatment have been dismissed and de-platformed, with vaccinations being presented as THE way to end the lockdowns, and the masking – although not immediately.

Any0ne not going along with this party line is branded a conspiracy theorist, anti-science or anti-social. To help us navigate this vexing vaxx situation, we have invited Dr. Len Saputo, MD a pioneer in integrative medicine and someone familiar with the science of immunity and vaccinations as our guest this week to shine some light on the shituation.

Dr. Len Saputo is a board-certified internist with more than 50 years of clinical experience. He has pioneered the development of an integrative, holistic, person-centered, preventive health care model called “Health Medicine.” He is the founder of the Health Medicine Forum, a non-profit educational foundation and the Health Medicine Center in Walnut Creek. Len is a practicing physician, motivational speaker, television and radio personality, and was formerly ranked number one in the world in men’s senior singles tennis by the International Tennis Federation. He is the author of the Nautilus Gold Award winning book, A Return to Healing: Radical Health Care Reform and the Future of Medicine and Science, Spirituality and Medicine. For the past year he has hosted The Voice of Reason Internet live video show that airs twice weekly and is focused on COVID-19. Len’s free website, www.DoctorSaputo.com, has more than 2600 audio and video files organized to provide completely free integrative information on more than 30 common health care conditions.

If you’re ready to hear a doctor’s perspective that hasn’t been doctored by propaganda, please join us this Tuesday, March 2nd at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

How Trusting Hearts Can Live in “Peaceful Tension” with Opposing Minds

Aired Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST

Interview with Charles Randall Paul, President of Foundation for Inter-Religious Diplomacy

“Truth lives in our hearts, beliefs lie in our heads.” — Swami Beyondananda

One of the big problems with finding a commonly-sensed common sense consensus among citizens across the political spectrum is that … well, we disagree. And these days, different political narratives mean different realities. On last week’s show, we featured the new documentary, “The Reunited States of America,” and how respectful, face-to-face, heart-to-heart communication can rehumanize the “other” and affirm “beloved community.”

And then what?

Do we pretend we don’t disagree on fundamental issues and worldviews? Do we dance around these profound differences, or is there another way? Last summer, I interviewed two thirds of a trio looking to create breakthrough in this regard. Arthur Pena and Jacob Hess are two close friends coming from completely different worldviews. Jacob is a conservative member of the Latter Day Saints. Arthur characterizes himself as a “gay, libertarian, Marxist.”

Our guest this week, Charles Randall Paul, is co-authoring a book with Arthur and Jacob, Inevitable Influencers: Why (deep down) We All Want—and Need—to Persuade Each Other of What We See as Good, Beautiful, and True. All three of these gentlemen believe in the seemingly paradoxical “peaceful tension” that can be created when our hearts are unified in the field of love and coherence, while our beliefs might be totally contradictory. Randall Paul seeks to turn our dueling dualities into dynamic duo dance partners, or as he calls them, “trustworthy rivals, not coercive enemies.”

Randall Paul, Ph.D., is the president of the Foundation for Inter-Religious Diplomacy. A native of New Jersey, he has a BS from Brigham Young University in social psychology and an MBA from Harvard University. He worked as a business partner at Trammell Crow Company in the southwestern USA, where he developed many commercial real estate projects for sixteen years. He then obtained a doctorate in 2000 at the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago, writing his dissertation on methods for engaging in religious conflict without acrimony or violence. He is on the executive board of the Society for Mormon Philosophy and Theology, and is an editor of the International Journal for Decision Ethics. Having served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in France and Belgium, he has held numerous callings since, including service as a bishop.

If you’d like to discover how changing hearts can be more transformational than changing minds, please join us this Tuesday, February 23rd at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

Interview with “Reunited States of America” Film Maker Raj Krishna

“We need more visionaries and fewer divisionaries.” — Swami Beyondananda

In the wake of the most contentious presidential election of our lifetime… there has indeed been an awakening.

There has been a subtle yet world-changing shift toward what we are calling political climate change – warmer hearts and cooler heads. Even in selecting Biden over Trump, there was an affirmation of the politics of connection and collaboration over the politics of domination and separation.

This politics of unity cannot pretend we all agree. Rather it involves finding ways to turn the dueling dualities of progressive and conservative into dynamic duo dance partners. In November, we interviewed transpartisan visionary and activist Mark Gerzon about a new documentary based on his book, The Reunited States Of America: How to Bridge The Partisan Divide.

Mark served as a consulting producer and also appears in the film. It is directed by Ben Rekhi and produced by Raj Krishna. It features Steven Olikara, of the Millennial Action Project; Greg Orman, an independent politician who ran for Governor of Kansas in 2018; and David and Erin Leaverton, who took a road trip to all fifty states with their three kids in an RV in an effort to understand why our nation was hurting.

The documentary was produced by Van Jones and Megan McCain, a Democrat and a Republican. The film was well-received both at the Cinequest Film Festival and the Atlanta DocuFest and the United Nations Association Film Festival.

The film was released last month – we have a link on the Wiki Politiki page for this interview – and we are delighted to have the producer of that film, Raj Krishna, as our guest today.

Raj Krishna is the founder of California Studios, a Silicon Valley-based development company focused on producing content exploring international stories and social justice issues. Raj sold his first short film My ‘Friend’ Mick to ShortsTV in 2019; his India-based film Knock Knock Knock was sold to Mubi in 2020; his directorial debut film Padmavyuha premiered as the opening night gala film at the International Indian Film Festival of Toronto (IIFFT) in August 2020; and his documentary project, The Reunited States, will be released in 2021.

If you are curious about the bridges being built for cooperation, collaboration and functionality, please join us this Tuesday, February 16th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

Byron Belitsos – And the Last Trump Shall Blow

The Convenient Marriage of Trumpism and Christian Apocalpticism

Aired Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST

Interview with Author and Integral Activist Byron Belitsos

“Donald Trump and Q-Anon were made for each other: The super-duper duper meets the super-duped.” — Swami Beyondananda

It’s been a paradox that “rational” observers have been puzzling over for nearly five years now. Why is it that so many Christian fundamentalists have gone gaga over Donald Trump, who seems to have embraced every one of the seven deadly sins as virtues? As the joke goes, Trump’s greatest asset is his liability – ability to lie – and yet many of Trump’s Christian followers find “truth” in his false statements.

Our guest this week, Byron Belitsos, was a journalist on site at the January 6th MAGA demonstrations and storming of the Capitol. He took photos, and informally interviewed dozens of people. He came away with a deep understanding of why people were there, and also of the Q-Anon phenomenon, and Evangelicals’ affection for Donald Trump. What were the real concerns these people had that the mainstream press isn’t talking about? What is the relationship between Trumpism and Christian Apocalpticism?

Byron Belitsos is an author, editor, journalist, and book publisher (OriginPress.org) as well as an experienced political activist and advocate of integral politics. He is also a practicing mystic and theologian, who has spent the past two years studying at Union Theological Seminary. Byron has been politically active since 1969 in a variety of venues and contexts, and became an early pioneer in the deep politics movement, working closely with David Ray Griffin, Jim Marrs, Bill Pepper, and Catherine Austin Fitts. He was the founder and CEO of Origin Press, where he published numerous award-winning books. He was also a board member of the Democratic World Federalists, and was coauthor of the acclaimed book One World Democracy (2005). He is the coauthor and publisher of A Return to Healing: Radical Health Care Reform and the Future of Medicine (2009), which won a Nautilus Gold award. Belitsos is also the author or co-author of six books on religion and spirituality including Your Evolving Soul (2018) and the forthcoming Integral Theodicy.

If you are looking to understand Trumpism – both its toxic aspects, and the truths it is seeking to bring to the surface, please join us this Tuesday, February 9th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

Michael Maxsenti – Finding and Cultivating Our Sane and Sacred Center

From Dueling Dualities to Dynamic Duo Dance Partners

Aired Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST

Interview with Conservative Transpartisan Activist Michael Maxsenti

“It’s time to bring left and right front and center to face the music and dance together.” — Swami Beyondananda

Once again this week the news headlines are dominated by the entrenched oppositional positions of the two political parties. And yet … and I know I sound like a broken record here … behind the scenes, awakening elements on all sides are seeking what we are calling the “sane and sacred center” – a way to bring Americans together around the virtues and values that the 90% of us who are not sociopaths hold in common.

In fact, here in California there is actually a new party emerging called the Common Sense Party, and if there is anything we need it is uncommon common sense!

As their website says:

“Our state used to take pride in our infrastructure, education, environmental preservation, health, and safety. For decades, these investments enabled mobility up the economic and social ladder for individuals and rapid growth for the State.

But an increasingly partisan environment has created bad public policy, stifling innovation, slowing infrastructure investment, jeopardizing public welfare, and compromising California’s status as a leader in the world.

We resolve to elevate the interests of Californians above partisan politics so we can renew California’s full promise.”

Our guest this week is conservative transpartisan activist Michael Maxsenti, a key advisor to the Common Sense Party. A successful entrepreneur in the printing business, Michael decided to reach out to young followers of the #Occupy movement some years ago, and the result was his platform Rebellious Truths, a non-profit focused on galvanizing, educating and engaging American youth in our political process incorporating YouTube and social media.

Michael’s executive positions span several industries that include private companies as well as nonprofits. His expertise covers every stage from start-up to rapid growth, crisis management to turnarounds, and to sustainable growth in new markets. He also was President of the Max Company, where he consulted on media, printing and publishing for more than a decade.

Currently, Michael’s passion is bringing Californians (and ultimately Americans) across the divide so that we can use the energy we have spent fighting and opposing one another in a political tug-of-war to create a “tug of peace” where we all pull together in the same direction to achieve what the vast majority of us want.

If you’re ready for a truly new conversation about politics, please join us this Tuesday, February 2nd at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

Finding Reality in a Post-Truth World

Aired Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST

Interview with Author, Publisher and Psychedelic Traveler Daniel Pinchbeck

“There’s so much fake news and real lies out there, we don’t know what to NOT believe.” — Swami Beyondananda

With reality checks bouncing like crazy for Q-Anon folks and others who believed that Donald Trump really won the election, one might imagine folks would sober up and join a group like Q-Anon-Anon to recover a bit of sanity.

But … no.

People continue to believe what they want to believe, and take shelter in preferred realities regardless of what is happening in “real” reality.

At a time when the veils are being lifted on toxic perpetrations, some of which challenge our most fundamental beliefs about what is real, what do we do? At a time when folks on one side believe EVERYTHING is a conspiracy, and folks on the other believe that NOTHING is, how do we find a story that will help us move ahead together?

Our guest this week, Daniel Pinchbeck is the author of a new book, Conspiranoia: The Betrayed States of America, where he shines a light down the rabbit hole to help us find a likelier (if not lovelier) story, and seeks to balance conspiracy theory with con’s piracy fact. That is, he is willing to look at the exploitative practices and relationships behind our true malaise, and recognize many of these conspiracies as trance-like distractions.

The founder of Reality Sandwich magazine, and co-founder of Evolver.net, Daniel is the author of Breaking Open the Head, 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, and How Soon Is Now, as well as his most recent, Conspiranoia. He has also appeared on The Colbert Report, Coast to Coast AM, The History Channel, Whitley Strieber’s Unknown Country, BrandX with Russell Brand, Interview Magazine, Purple, and many other places.

The Psychology Behind Trumpism and What We Can Do About It

Aired Tuesday, January 19, 2021 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST

Interview with Psychotherapist, Author and Men’s Health Expert Jed Diamond

“Demagogue: A divisionary who spews impropaganda blaming ‘dem,’ and never ‘us.’.” — Swami Beyondananda

Trump may be going, going, gone yet Trumpism remains.

Much has been written about Donald Trump’s psychological issues, and yet his appeal – particularly to a certain type of man – remains a bit of a mystery. Many, many people, certainly a majority of adult Americans, recognize Donald Trump as a self-serving liar and con artist. Yet many hold him as a hero, an upholder of American values, and the final firewall between our freedom and a top-down totalitarian “one world government.”

Our guest this week Jed Diamond has been studying men’s health and psychology for more than half a century. Nearly five years ago, in May 2016, he predicted Donald Trump would be the next President. (https://menalive.com/the-real-reason-donald-trump-will-be-our-next-president/)

In that prophetic article, he points to Donald Trump’s childhood of serious abuse, neglect, and abandonment, and then warns that other men who have suffered similar indignities would relate to Trump, and revile the same establishment forces he does. Earlier this month, we witnessed groups such as the Proud Boys, who showed up armed in Washington, D.C. to storm the capital in support of their fearless leader. But maybe it wasn’t fearlessness, but fearfulness running them.

So … how do we address this psychological disease that nearly caused democracy’s demise? How do we reach the real people struggling with their personal pain and projecting it out on the world? And … how do we uncover the REAL concerns these wounded men hold, and bring them out for resolution?

Jed Diamond, Ph.D., is the Founder and Director of Men Alive, a health program that helps men live long and well. Jed is the author of 17 books including his latest, My Distant Dad: Healing the Family Father Wound (Lasting Impact Press, 2018).

Jed’s previous books include: The Enlightened Marriage: The 5 Transformative Stages of Relationships and Why the Best is Still to Come … The Irritable Male Syndrome and 12 Rules For Good Men. He has been on the Board of Advisors of the Men’s Health Network since its inception in 1992. He is also a member of the International Society of Men’s Health and a founding member of the American Society of Men’s Health. He blogs for the ThirdAge, Huffington Post, BeliefNet, Scribd, and other venues. He is the only male columnist who blogs for the National Association of Baby Boomer Women.

An Interview with Dr. Susan Rogers, Director of Physicians for a National Health Program

“Our health care system needs to be healthier and more caring.” — Swami Beyondananda

America’s health care system is seriously ill. And maybe instead of seeing a doctor, we need to see a paradox. Here are some paradoxical “irony supplements” to munch on. Did you know…

• The U.S. spends more on health care as a share of the economy — nearly twice as much as the average industrial country — yet has the lowest life expectancy and highest suicide rates among the 11 Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) nations.

• The U.S. has the highest chronic disease burden and an obesity rate that is two times higher than the OECD average.

• Americans had fewer physician visits than peers in most countries, which may be related to a low supply of physicians in the U.S.

• Compared to peer nations, the U.S. has among the highest number of hospitalizations from preventable causes and the highest rate of avoidable deaths.

Do the math.

Do the aftermath. The chronic illness of our health care system impacts all segments of society and the economy. And perhaps the greatest negative impact is on people of color. Compared to whites, they are more likely to be uninsured, face discrimination that creates barriers to care, and suffer from preventable health conditions and early death.

Our guest this week is Dr. Susan Rogers, director of Physicians for a National Health Care Program. As an African-American and a medical doctor, she has seen first hand how health care for people of color can be – second-hand. This not only has to do with health care delivery, but also prevention, nutrition and other factors that negatively impact health.

Dr. Rogers is recently retired from Stroger Hospital of Cook County, but continues as a volunteer attending hospitalist and internist there. While at Stroger Hospital, she was co-director of medical student programs for the Department of Medicine and received numerous teaching awards from medical students and residents. She is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Rush University, where she continues to be an active member of the Committee of Admissions.

Dr. Rogers received her medical degree from the University of Illinois College of Medicine and completed her residency at Cook County Hospital, where she served an additional year as Chief Resident. She is a national board member of Physicians for a National Health Program and a past co-president of Health Care for All Illinois. She previously was Medical Director of the Near North Health Service Corp, a FQHC in Chicago, and remained on their board for many years after she left her directorship there. Dr. Rogers is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, and a member of the National Medical Association.

How Do We Separate Truth From Propaganda Regarding COVID and Vaccines?

An Interview with Political Psychologist Diane Perlman and Peace and Justice Activist Marilyn Langlois

Swami’s Dictionary
“Irony Curtain: The invisible wall of impropaganda that separates we the people from the truth.” — Swami Beyondananda

You may have heard of that controversial documentary called “Vaxxed” that caused quite a stir a few years ago. Well, I am calling the first show of this New Year “vexxed” because so many people are vexed and confounded by conflicting narratives around COVID, vaccinations, Bill Gates and the so-called new world order.

I can tell you in advance we may not get to any definitive answers, but we WILL address some definitive questions to help you navigate the confusion, obfuscation, and the real and true information seeking to get heard. My guests today are not medical professionals, and so will not be offering any medical perspective on COVID and its treatments.

Both of our guests are, however, are experts on propaganda and communication and will offer us a “meta-view” of what is being communicated, how it is being communicated and to what end.

Both psychologist and conflict analyst Diane Perlman and progressive activist Marilyn Langlois are associated with Transcend International, a solutions-oriented peace project based on the work of Johan Galtung, that seeks to move beyond win-lose and even compromise, to achieve breakthrough solutions.

Diane Perlman, PhD, is a clinical and political psychologist, conflict analyst, interdisciplinary social scientist, author, educator, mediator, lifelong human rights advocate, environmentalist, and patent holder. She is interested in psychological dynamics of conflict and reconciliation, and strategies of win-win conflict transformation capable of producing enduring security. Previously she had a clinical practice in individual, couple and family therapy, psychoneuroimmunology and Jungian oriented psychotherapy.

Marilyn Langlois is a convener of TRANSCEND USA West Coast. She is a volunteer community organizer and international solidarity activist based in Richmond, California. A co-founder of the Richmond Progressive Alliance, she is retired from previous employment as a teacher, secretary, administrator, mediator and community advocate.

After focusing many years on being a single mother, she has become a self-taught advocate for peace and justice in the last 20 years, having witnessed in her home town of Richmond, California and on travels to Haiti, El Salvador, Vietnam, North Korea, Uganda and former Yugoslavia some of the violence and poverty resulting from US imperialism and cut-throat capitalism.

If you’ve had your fill of heated discussions, and would like an enlightening one for a change, please join us this Tuesday, January 5th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.

I’ve said it before, and it looks like this is going to become a broken record for my Wiki Politiki broadcasts for this coming year – we have a deeply UNITED body politic in that more than three quarters of us want to cooperate and collaborate, rather than fight one another.

When this week’s guest, visionary activist Norlyn Dimmitt asserted that 76% of Americans want to come together to solve problems, it reminded me of something that happened nearly 25 years ago. I was listening to a talk by spiritual psychologist Patricia Sun, and she recounted a presentation she gave at a new age bookstore. Outside the bookstore were four fundamentalist Christians picketing the bookstore. Patricia suggested going out to talk with the picketers, but the bookstore owner said, “Forget it. You can’t talk with those people.”

Nonetheless, Patricia went out to converse with the group, and after ten minutes three of the picketers put down their signs, hugged her and said, “You’re saying exactly what Jesus said.”

The fourth picketer was unmoved and continued to carry his sign.

This anecdote led me to postulate what I call “The Law of 75.” 75% of people – three quarters of us – are susceptible to loving, respectful conversation. Norlyn does me one percent better. His figures say 76%.

Furthermore, Norlyn is working with an organization, Compassionate Citizens that is weaving together hundreds of faith-based organizations to help bring about what he calls caring culture, caring economy, and wise democracy. One of the partners, the Listen First Coalition, is billed as “350+ organizations working together to mend our frayed social fabric by building relationships and bridging divides,” empowering what is called the National Conversation Project.

Norlyn’s own spiritual history involves being raised in the radically fundamentalist Worldwide Church of God, and evolving to one of those rare Unitarians who actually believes in God! His is a mathematician by training, an actuary by trade, and his experience in the real estate industry has led to his design of a unique way to fund Compassionate Conversations.

Again, broken record department.

For months you’ve heard me talk about creating, populating and empowering a sane and sacred center to fill the vacuum in our society currently being occupied by the unchecked, unbalanced, unmitigated power of money. Can faith-based communities help us bridge the divide and cultivate a unifying yet inclusive meta-narrative that will apply the Golden Rule to overgrow the rule of gold?

To get Norlyn’s encouraging perspective, please join us this Tuesday, December 29th at 2 pm PT / 5 pm ET.
