Ivo Dominguez, Jr. - Keys to Perception

You’ve chosen to follow a new and different approach to life. Perhaps it is an esoteric path that has always fascinated you. You are studying the rituals and elements associated with that path in preparation for beginning the practice but is there something more that is necessary to safely and fully experience the essence of what you are embarking on?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Ivo Dominguez, Jr. says that there is and that is the “deepening of your ability to sense to clarify, sense and understand the rich worlds beyond the veils of the ordinary.”

Ivo, a visionary and practitioner of a variety of esoteric disciplines, was a founding member of Keepers of the Holly Chalice, the first coven of the Assembly of the Sacred, a Wiccan syncretic tradition that draws inspiration from astrology, Qabalah, the Western Magickal Tradition and the folk religions of Europe. Ivo is also a professional astrologer, having studied astrology for more than 37 years. His website is www.ivodominguezjr.com and he joins me this week to discuss his latest book, Keys to Perception: A Practical Guide to Psychic Development.

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.

M. J. Ryan - Attitudes of Gratitude

When we take time to stop and reflect, how do we measure our lives? Do we look at the balance between perceived successes and failures in material gain, careers and relationships? Do we take inventory of that which we think makes us happy and that which makes us sad? Is there satisfaction in either way of taking stock, and is there a deeper, more profound practice to open our hearts and find core happiness?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, M. J. Ryan, says there is and it comes in the practice of gratitude. M. J. is one of the creators of The New York Times bestselling Random Acts of Kindness and the author of The Happiness Makeover, How to Survive Change You Didn’t Ask For, and The Power of Patience among other titles.

Bernard Haisch - Proof of God

The question is as old as human kind has had the ability to think, reason and ask. Is there a God? If so, does God care about us? Or is human life a mere accident of physics and biology? For centuries, these fundamental questions have been integral to every culture and religion the world has known—and have not been answered, save by faith. When it comes to finding answers about how the universe came into existence, “God” is simply another theory. A theory that, many say, is no longer needed. But in the new book, PROOF OF GOD: The Shocking True Answer to the World’s Most Important Question, New York Times bestselling author Ptolemy Tompkins joins forces with internationally acclaimed astrophysicist Bernard Haisch to demonstrate that not only is God real, but that it is science, itself, that proves it.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Bernard—“Bernie”—Haisch is something of an anomaly—a respected, accomplished scientist who believes, firmly and fervently, in the existence of God. Many scientists disdain faith, as there is no empirical evidence of any of it, and many Christians fear science, which they believe contradicts their beliefs. But the truth, Bernie argues in this book, is that you can’t understand the universe without acknowledging that the evidence of God is clear in the very make-up of our world. Science and faith are two sides of the same coin.

Paul Avgerinos - Home: Where Everyone is Welcome

In 1883, Emma Lazarus wrote the sonnet, “The New Colossus.” Her precious words are inscribed on a bronze plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty. The words read,

“Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

For many generations of Americans, these words were also inscribed in their hearts; recognizing that other than the indigenous people of this fair land, we are all the descendants of immigrants.

Yet recently, there seems to be a memory lapse…a forgetting of how immigrants built this country with their sweat, toil, tears, blood and dreams and a rejection, based upon fear and ignorance, of the value of those who would come and join us in this purely American adventure. What can we do to restore the memories, eradicate the fear and inform those who have been misled about the seeds of greatness from foreign lands that blossomed and continue to flourish in this country.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Paul Avgerinos, along Deepak Chopra and Kabir Sehgal, have collaborated on a beautiful collection of poems and songs inspired by American Immigrants called, “Home: Where Everyone is Welcome.”

Paul is a first generation American, whose father Costas emigrated from Greece to the U.S. in 1938. Paul is a Grammy wining artist, composer, producer and engineer with 23 critically acclaimed New Age Albums to his credit. He is active in creating scores for a variety of television shows. He is a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University and runs Studio Unicorn.

Kabir Sehgal is also a first generation American and his parents are both from India. He is a New York Times and Wallstreet Journal Best Selling Author of eight books such as Coined and Jazzocracy. He ia a multi-Grammy and Latin Grammy Award Winning producer. He is a US Navy Veteran and works in Corporate Strategy at First Data Corporation in New York City.

Deepak Chopra needs little introduction. He was an immigrant from India who moved to the U.S. in 1970 and became a citizen in 1984. He is a world renowned pioneer in inte-grative medicine, founder of the Chopra Center, author, lecturer and music composer. Time Magazine labelled him one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century.

Doris E. Cohen – Dreaming on Both Sides of the Brain

In his soliloquy, Shakespeare’s immortal and tragic Hamlet said, “To die, to sleep – to sleep, perchance to dream – ay, there’s the rub, for in this sleep of death what dreams may come…”

Dreams… some delight, some cause concern and some are fearsome. Dreams are the secret language of the unconscious and if we learn that language and explore those dreams, we can enrich and empower our lives.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Doris E. Cohen, says we can learn to harness the power of the brain to uncover a life of greater richness and meaning. Doris has been a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in private practice for more than thirty years treating thousands of clients. He approach uses therapy, hypnotherapy, past-life regressions and dream analysis. A certified healer, metaphysical intuitive and communicator with Guides and Angels of Light, Doris has given more than 20,000 medical, spiritual and relationship readings. She has also conducted numerous workshops and has lectured nationally and internationally. She joins me this week to discuss her new book, Dreaming on Both Sides of the Brain—Discover the Secret Language of the Night.

Annie Mattingley - The After Death Chronicles

As humans, we are composed of body, mind and spirit. Neuroscience tells us the residence of mind is in the brain, a complex of neurons communicating with electro-chemical signals. What about spirit or soul…the eternal essence of who we are? Where does spirit reside and when these carbon based containers that we know as our bodies stop functioning and cease to exist, where does spirit go? Does spirit or soul or personality survive after death and if so can the living establish communication with them? This ageless question is one we each ask in our own way, especially when it comes to those we have loved.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Annie Mattingley, experienced this first hand when her late daughter started communicating with her, a communication that was both healing and transformative.

Annie has an MA in consciousness studies and has worked as a teacher, magazine publisher and hospice volunteer. She is now retired and lives in Questa, New Mexico. Her website is www.anniemattingley.com and she joins me to discuss her just released book, The After Death Chronicles: True Stories of Comfort, Guidance and Wisdom from Beyond the Veil.
