Raven Digitalis – The Everyday Empath

Aired Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 5:00 PM PST / 8:00 PM EST

Growing up in the 1950’s, I had a sense of being different from many of my friends and classmates. I was often the outsider and would rather be off in a quiet place than in a noisy, busy room. Some teachers labeled me “sensitive” and that sensitivity extended to knowing how others felt without them expressing it. I felt their pain, their anger, their confusion and also their joy. I became the friend that others relied upon when they needed a compassionate listener. Although it felt good to help others feel better about themselves, it often left me drained and tired. It wasn’t until my late thirties that I came to understand that I was an empath and learned how to be of service to others while maintaining my own energy balance.

Being an empath in everyday life can be a blessing when we learn how to balance this gift and our needs with the needs of others. My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, my friend Raven Digitalis, is also a life-long empath who has dedicated much of his life to learning the tools of the balanced empath and sharing them with others. Raven is a Neopagan Priest and cofounder of an Eastern Hellenistic nonprofit multicultural temple called Opus Aima Obscurae (OAO). Trained in Eastern philosophies and Georgian Witchcraft, Raven has been an earth-based practitioner since 1999, a Priest since 2003, and a Freemason since 2012. He is the author of Esoteric Empathy, Shadow Magick Compendium, Planetary Spells and Rituals and Goth Craft.

Nearly all of us experience trauma at some point in our lives. Psychological trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. This may result from the sudden loss of a loved one, being the victim of a violent crime, the toll on a veteran returning from war, the plight of the refugee fleeing an unstable country or even the loss of employment without new prospects. More recently, mass shootings, the fear and loss generated by severe weather, and the extreme divisiveness of our national climate have generated new heights of trauma. Is there a way that we may overcome trauma and reverse the psychological and biological damage it causes?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. James Gordon, says that the use of mind-body medicine can accomplish this as evidenced by the work he and his worldwide team have used to relieve the suffering of hundreds of thousands of adults and children around the world.

Dr. Gordon is a Harvard-trained Psychiatrist, former researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health and, Chair of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy and a clinical professor of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at Georgetown Medical School. He is the founder and executive director of The Center for Mind Body Medicine (CMBM) in Washington, D.C. He authored or edited ten books including Unstuck: Your Guide to the Seven-stage Journey Out of Depression. He has written for a range of publications including The New York Times, Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Guardian and many professional Journals. He has served as an expert for 60 Minutes, Today, Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, Nightline, CNN, MSNBC, NPR and many others. You can find him at the Center for Mind Body Medicine website,, and he joins me this week to discuss trauma healing and his just published new book, The Transformation: Discovering Wholeness and Healing After Trauma.

Kathleen Marden – Extraterrestrial Contact

Aired Wednesday, 4 September 2019, 8:00 PM ET

As a child growing up in the 1950’s, I had a number of experiences that I could not explain. I would wake up in the middle of the night, have a sense of travelling into the sky and being in the presence of what I thought were “special teachers”. When this “night school” was over, I remember being back in my room, looking out the window and seeing triangular objects in the sky which quickly vanished. When I shared these experiences with my parents and others, I was told that I was “imagining” them and had an “overactive” imagination. But a series of events later in life confirmed what I knew to be the truth. I was a contactee and my teachers were not of this world.

As the decades ensued, more people came forward with reports of sightings, contact and what some have called abductions by extra-terrestrial beings. Many of these experiences were revealed in sessions of hypnotic regression. The first widely reported and most famous of these was the case of Betty and Barney Hill.

Have you had one of these experiences? Have you had a sense of lost time, an unexplained interruption in your life, unusual and unexplained scars or even direct knowledge of being in the presence of ET’s? How can you be sure and what, if anything, should you do?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Kathleen Marden, is a leading researcher of contact with nonhuman intelligence, an author and a lecturer. She is the director of experience research at the Mutual UFO Network and is an advisory board member and consultant to Edgar Mitchell’s Foundation into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters. She is also the niece of Betty Hill.

Vincent Genna – What Our Space Brothers and Sisters Want Us to Know

Aired Wednesday, 14 August 2019, 8:00 PM ET

In his 1972 classic album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust”, David Bowie sang
a song about “Starman.” The lyric went, in part,
“There’s a Starman waiting in the sky
He’d like to come and meet us
But he thinks he’d blow our minds
There’s a Starman waiting in the sky
He’s told us not to blow it
Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile.”

In 1976, the Canadian band, Klaatu, released their song, “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft” which later was recorded and became a hit for the Carpenters.

In Steve Spielberg’s 1982 classic, “E.T. The Extraterrestrial”, E.T. enlists the aid of his human friend Elliott to build a device with which he can “phone home.”

All of these artistic endeavors shared a common theme…communication, in one direction or another, between those on earth with those in the heavens and other plains of existence. What if this communication truly existed? What if we could connect on all levels with all forms of life, energy and spirit, and share an even deeper connection, ultimately with each other?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Vincent Genna, knows these communications well and says that ET is trying to phone but not home! He is trying to phone us! World-renowned Vincent Genna is a triple power psychic – an authentic and gifted psychic with the knowledge and experience of a licensed psychotherapist, and the big, charming personality of a showman. He combines his early background as a professional actor and singer, a Masters in Clinical Social Work and his Hospice experience helping more than 500 patients through the dying process, with his uncanny skills as a metaphysician and psychic medium. The sum total of these experiences and gifts is a psychic who can guide people not only to recognize what is preventing them from healing or attaining their dreams, but the necessary steps to get there.

Vincent is a result oriented psychic who tunes into an individual on their soul, angelic and higher self-levels for guiding messages. He is then able to decipher where one is blocking themselves from their connection to their higher self or the Divine, removes those blockages so one can experience this connection, and in the process help the person to heal the corresponding illness, disturbance or imbalance. He also has the remarkable ability to instill strong self-belief, and inspire one to recognize and apply their Divine talents to fulfill their dreams, and create a happy and rewarding life.

Television and radio love Vincent. People have become enamored with his several interviews on Coast to Coast AM and Hay House Radio, as well as local major radio shows around the country. His appearances on television shows such as Hallmark’s Home and Family, and The Better Show, along with regular appearances on the Chicago and Raleigh morning shows have captivated the hearts of millions of people. His website is and he joins me this week to share his story and experience and what our space brothers and sisters want us to know.

Jill Sylvester – Trust Your Intuition

In 1981, the Moody Blues released an album called “Long Distance Voyager.” It featured a song composed by Justin Hayward entitled “The Voice.” The lyric said, in part,
“Make a promise, take a vow,
And trust your feelings, it easy now.
Understand The Voice within,
And feel a change already beginning.”

“The Voice Within.” We all have access to this when we choose to truly listen. Call it your “instinct”, your “guide”, your “higher source” or simply intuition, truly listening may lead to fundamental changes in the way we live. Can it also guide us when we are in the throws of anxiety and depression. Can trusting your intuition transform your approach to life and even strengthen your mental health?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Jill Sylvester, says it absolutely can! Jill Sylvester is a licensed mental health counselor who has worked with adults and children in private practice for nearly ten years. She’s been quoted in Oprah Magazine and She Knows.

Dr. Linda Backman – Bringing Your Soul To Light

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

I was born in 1953. For as far back as I can remember, I had a feeling of being “different.” I had a deep and abiding sense that when I looked up at the night sky, I was looking in the direction of my true home. In 1959, while in first grade, my wonderful teacher gave me first access to a just published book for children entitled, You Will Go To The Moon. When I told her that the book should not be shared with other students and refused to return it, she arranged a meeting with my mother and the school principal. When he asked me my reason for thinking the book should not be read by other students, I emphatically replied, “Because it is wrong.” He asked how I knew this and I replied, “Because I have been there!” Needless to say, the resultant counseling and testing established that I was mentally and emotionally stable and my “flight of fancy” was chalked off to an “overactive imagination.” Or was it? Was I somehow connecting to memories…memories of a previous existence? Had my essence, my soul, originated elsewhere and arrived here for a visit? Does my incarnation on Earth have purpose and how many others have had similar experiences?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Linda Backman, says that through the process of soul regression we can have a deeper understanding of our soul’s purpose and yes, its origin both Earth Based and Interplanetary!

Dr. Linda Backman, psychologist and regression therapist, has been in private practice for 40 years. She guides individuals in soul regression hypnotherapy to access their past and between lives. In this way she assists people to more fully recognize who they are as a soul throughout repetitive lifetimes, and during the time we are not incarnate, as well as discovering their soul intention for this life.

Linda’s focus includes guiding regression and soul-mentoring clients, as well as speaking, writing, presenting and training others in soul regression hypnotherapy. She teaches, conducts workshops in the US and abroad, and maintains an active regression practice. She is deeply focused on an evolving universal understanding and awareness of the path of soul development that leads to the acceptance of Oneness and Unity of all people and cultures of the world. In 1997, Dr. Backman and her husband, Dr. Earl Backman, established the Ravenheart Center in Boulder, Colorado, dedicated to guiding individuals to discover their soul path. She is the author of Bringing Your Soul To Light, The Evolving Soul and 2018’s Souls on Earth. Her website is and she joins me this week to discuss all of this and more.

Aired Wednesday, 10 July 2019, 8:00 PM ET

Do you believe in an immortal soul? Is there a distinct and separate part of each being that is not bound to the material physical body, transcends the death of the body and returns to be embodied again and again? Is it possible that the memories and experiences of previous incarnations affect our present lives and may even prevent us from finding happiness and fulfillment? If all of this is true, is there a way to reconnect with those past life experiences, reconcile them, clear blockages and move forward in this incarnation with clarity and purpose?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Bryn Blankinship, says that this may be achieved by using her hypnoregression technique, “Soul Expression Spiritual Regression” or SESR. Bryn is an award-wining second-generation hypnotherapist , international instructor and author. She served on the original board of the Newton Institute as director of membership from 2005-2012. She has been featured in several documentaries and radio interviews on the subject of past lives and life between lives.

Have you ever questioned your self-worth? Were there events in your child hood, teen years and early adult life that made you feel less worthy than others? Are you one of the millions of people who live their lives unfulfilled and unhappy because they are wired into thinking that they are unworthy of enjoying what is their birthright? Is there a way to turn this around, find self-worth and self-love and live the live you deserve to live?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Anne Boudreau, says that you can turn this around, find your self-worth and achieve sustainable happiness. She says the science of neuroplasticity is the key to making this happen.

Anne Boudreau is an inspirational author, coach and executive who is devoted to helping others develop healthy self-worth. Anne was born in Santiago Chile, has lived in South America and Europe, traveled extensively and is multi-lingual. She is a graduate of Northwestern University, earning degrees in English and writing.

Anne lives in Atlanta with her husband, three spirited children and three attention hungry canines that rarely leave her side.

In 1970, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin composed “The Immigrant Song”. The lyric said, in part;

“We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
We’ll drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, and sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming!”

References to Norse mythology may once again be found in mainstream pop culture. Marvel Studio’s blockbuster series of movies featuring Odin, Thor and Loki are drawing record crowds to connect with the energy they represent. Why is there this resurgent interest in the mystic north and are neo-pagans finding new meaning in ancient beliefs and practices.?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, author and historian Christopher McIntosh, says these ancient roots are resonating again today. Christopher McIntosh is the author of numerous books on various esoteric traditions. He holds a PhD in history from Oxford, a degree in German from London University and a diploma in Russian from the United Nations Language School. He was on the faculty of the Centre for the Study of Esotericism at Exeter University. He lives in Germany from where he is joining me this week to discuss his new book, Beyond the North Wind: The Fall and Rise of the Mystic North.
