Riane Eisler – Exploring Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, and the Politics of the Body

Aired Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

“Our deepest and most powerful human yearning is for connection – for sex, for love, for all that gives pleasure and meaning to our lives. Yet sexual violence is commonplace, and the ‘war of the sexes’ continues to perpetuate misunderstanding and pain. Why does this struggle persist? What can we do to reclaim our innate power to give and receive pleasure and to find meaning in our lives?”

That short passage was taken from a book published 24 years ago. As has become evident over the past few years, those words have been growing more relevant with each passing year. The book is Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, And the Politics of the Body… New Paths to Power and Love. Its author, cultural historian, social systems scientist, and best-selling author of The Chalice and the Blade, Dr. Riane Eisler, joins Sandie this week to discuss:

* The truths about sex that have been swept under the rug of religious dogma and scientific jargon.
* The sexual myths that have corrupted male/female relationships over the millennia
* How and why domination and violence have been eroticized and even sanctified
* How sexuality is constructed differently in a partnership Vs. dominator
* And, most important of all, how we can construct a society in which the unfolding of our higher selves through physical and spiritual union can be socially supported instead of distorted and repressed.

RIANE EISLER is a social systems scientist, cultural historian, and attorney whose research, writing, and speaking has transformed the lives of people worldwide. She is President of the Center for Partnership Studies (CPS) and Editor-in-Chief of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies.

A refugee from Nazi Europe as a child, she has addressed the UN General Assembly, the US Department of State and Congressional Briefings, and authored over 500 articles published in outlets including The Christian Science Monitor, Human Rights Quarterly, and International Journal of Women’s Studies. Her book The Chalice and The Blade: Our History, Our Future is an international bestseller.

Synchronize Your Energies – November 2019

Aired Thursday, November 28, 2019 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

When your life and work revolve around tapping in to the unseen realms to support others in understanding their lives and experiences from an expanded perspective, what do you do in your down time? How do you stabilize YOUR energies? Where do you find the support YOU need? With whom do you share your rawest and most honest thoughts, feelings, and experiences wrought by the rapid evolutionary shifts in consciousness that are upgrading us all? When it comes to decompressing and stabilizing their energies, Sandie Sedgbeer, Lee Harris, and Suzy Miller’s regular off-the-record, no-holds-barred 3-way conversations have always been a useful way of gathering up the stand-out pieces of the month and extracting the juice from their personal observations, lessons and insights so they can navigate the month ahead with insight, equanimity, and purpose. Now they’re inviting you to join them too. But be warned, just like eavesdropping on a regular kick-off-your-shoes gathering between three good friends, the conversation’s completely unscripted, totally raw, and authentic, so, chances are you may hear some personal confidences you might never have expected to hear… But there’s wisdom in that too. And you’ll also get to benefit from a unique and powerful Synchronize Your Energies session with Suzy that’s designed to set you up to thrive, not just survive, these tumultuous times. Join us on the Last Thursday of every month, 7-8pm ET/4-5pm PT.

Miten – Devotee: Music for the Vulnerable Moments in Life

Aired Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

It’s a pretty rare thing for us to devote an entire episode of What Is Going Om to music but when we do, you can bet there’s nothing ordinary or run of the mill about the music and the musician we’re choosing to feature.

This week, we’re going to be talking about and listening to some tracks from the latest album from singer and songwriter Miten, who is celebrated worldwide, not only for his work with musical soulmate and mantra star, Deva Pemal, but also in his own right as a composer, producer and creator of inspirational albums that regularly top iTunes and Amazon charts. Miten’s new album, Devotee, is unusual in that his basic objective in creating it was to provide support for the vulnerable moments in life when our defences are down and our hearts are wide open.

Robyn Spizman – Loving Out Loud: The Power of Kindness

Aired Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

With reports of bullying, crimes of hatred, and vicious public trolling on the rise, many might wonder if the news media’s continual focus on highlighting the worst excesses of humanity’s wrong doings rather than its right doings is evidence that once revered traits such as morals, ethics, politeness, respect, and good manners are on the decline.

Whatever happened to simple kindness?

50 years ago, Dawna Markova, co-creator of the book, Random Acts of Kindness ignited a revolution of kindness. This week, award-winning, NY Times bestselling author and popular keynote speaker Robyn Spizman, joins Sandie to talk about her latest book Loving Out Loud: The Power of a Kind Word.

ROBYN SPIZMAN is the author of over 50 books and has appeared in the media for over three decades, including on NBC’s Today show more than times. The foreword to Robyn Spizman’s latest book, Loving Out Loud: The Power of a Kind Word was written by Dawna Markova, who claimed Spizman’s book to be “a powerful act of kindness in itself.” http://www.robynspizman.com

Danielle MacKinnon – Discovering Your Spiritual Connection with Animals

Aired Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST

According to pet ownership statistics, America and the UK are both nations that really love their pets. As is evidenced by the huge success of books and movies about Lassie, Flickr, and Rin Tin Tin, and A Dog’s Purpose, and Marley and Me, it’s clear that to most of us our pets are not just dumb animals. But could the role that animals are here to play in our lives be greater even than many of us have considered? could it be that our animals are in our lives to help us evolve as souls?

DANIELLE MacKINNON is a gifted intuitive and Soul Connection coach who has appeared on national TV and on numerous radio stations around the world. A faculty member of the Omega Institute, the Lily Dale Assembly, and the Kripalu center, she is the founder of the Danielle McKinnon School of Animal Communication, and is a popular facilitator of online and in person seminars in animal communication, soul contracts, and the intuitive senses.

Danielle MacKinnon joins Sandie this week to share how we can develop our spiritual connection with animals and discover what they are here to teach us.
