Lisa Swerdlow – Freedom to Build a Better Life

Aired Monday, October 18, 2021 at 11:00 AM PST / 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT / 8:00 PM CET

How do we find the balance between comfort and courage as we seek to build a better life?

People leave their everyday lives and step into the unknown for many reasons. Taking a leap of faith and risking everything requires courage. During a long and drawn-out Covid-19 quarantine, composer and pianist Lisa Swerdlow felt inspired to explore what makes people take that leap of faith? What gives them the perseverance needed to survive? Can hope be nurtured in times of uncertainty? And, yes, what gave her grandparents the trust needed to escape the pogroms of Russia and take refuge in a new land, America? This question kept on reappearing and so she sat down to compose a Concerto to honor our resilience.

Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and pianist and composer Lisa Swerdlow in a heartfelt conversation as we talk about freedom to experience, dream, explore, try, and grow. Discover how to dive into the unknown and fully yourself. Gain confidence that you, too, can make your dream come true.

Is it our voice that is the driving force behind creating success and happiness? Each of us carries an influential voice within, but we are often unaware of its impact on our world. Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and New York Times Best-selling author and serial Entrepreneur Trevor Blake in a heartfelt conversation on manifesting abundance magically, creating financial independence, and leading a lifestyle in harmony with our values. Shifting from humbled beginnings to building multi-million dollar businesses, Trevor started his first company with just a few hundred dollars. He sold it in 2010 for more than a hundred million. He has since sold two more companies, and he’s never hired a single employee or worked more than five hours a day. Trevor has written “Three Simple Steps” and his newest book, “Secrets to a Successful Startup: A Recession-Proof Guide to Starting, Surviving & Thriving in Your Own Venture.” Curious about bringing more practical magic into your business and life and using your voice and communication skills to become an ambassador of abundance?

Steven Halpern – Cannabis Dreams: Tuning Fork for the Brain

Aired Monday, June 28, 2021 at 11:00 AM PST / 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT / 8:00 PM CET

For centuries and across cultures, sacred ceremonies using plant medicine were vital to collective well-being. These long-revered healing plants, ayahuasca, peyote, cannabis, and mushrooms nourished individuals and were crucial for collective well-being. Yet, these long-revered healing instruments have been largely forgotten by today’s society. Why? What might we be missing? And what role do music and plants play in nurturing and uplifting body, mind, and spiritual well-being? Music is a tuning fork for the brain. Can the frequencies and harmonics in plants inspire healing? Can music help us “get high” and feel good? What role does sound play in building peaceful communities?

Join voice-visionary Kara Johnstad, and GRAMMY® nominated composer, recording artist, and researcher Steven Halpern in an in-depth conversation on sound consciousness and his new album release, Cannabis Dreams. In 2021, with legalization in many states and with the medical benefits of cannabis more widely accepted – Halpern’s co-composed masterpiece is released, and we celebrate. Learn through plant medicine and music to reprogram unconscious patterns that no longer serve us. Explore the principle of consciousness and change. Co-create a sound world.
