Henry Fersko-Weiss – Caring for the Dying
We live in a world where for the most part, we are welcomed into life with joyous and loving anticipation. Many of us have been born in hospitals and some have been welcomed at home with our arrival facilitated by a mid-wife or doula. As joyful and warm as our arrivals may be, how often it seems that our departure from this life is cold, sterile, sad and incomplete for those we leave behind. What if there was a doula to support us and our families when we pass in a life affirming way that liberates the spirit and brings maximum comfort to our loved ones?
Such doulas do exist and my guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Henry Fersko-Weiss, created the first End of Life Doula Program in the United States in 2003. Henry is executive director of the International End of Life Doula Association and has built many programs based upon his original model. His work has been featured in the NY Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and elsewhere. Henry is on the faculty of the Open Center’s Art of Dying Institute. He joins me this week to discuss his new book, Caring for the Dying: The Doula Approach to a Meaningful Death.

Acharya Shunya - Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom
I first heard about Ayurveda, the ancient Indian spiritual healing wisdom, when I started practicing yoga in my late 30’s. It sounded mysterious, far away, and something that would have little relevance to my 1980’s New York lifestyle. As they say, with age (and experience) comes wisdom and for those with open minds and open hearts, new pathways and possibilities. It also brings new opportunities to meet and learn from wonderful teachers.
This week on Destination Unlimited, we have the privilege and pleasure of welcoming one such teacher, Acharya Shunya, who will share her heritage, wisdom and her new book, Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom: A Complete Prescription to Optimize Your Health, Prevent Disease, and Live with Vitality and Joy.
Learning Ayurveda at the knee of her beloved grandfather, who was revered as a saint throughout India, Shunya has become one of the leading American practitioners and advocates. She is the founder of Vedika Global, a spiritual foundation dedicated to elevating consciousness, building community, and serving humanity by illuminating India’s Vedic spiritual traditions of Ayurveda, Yoga, and Vedanta. She was named among the 100 Ayurveda and Yoga Trailblazers by Spirituality and Health magazine and is president of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine.

Raven Digitalis - Esoteric Empathy
Do you feel and experience the world more deeply than others? Can you feel the emotions of others, both positive and negative? Are you the person that friends, family and even strangers turn to sharing their problems and seeking your excellent listening skills and compassion? Do you often feel ill without explanation? Do you have excellent intuitive abilities and can predict and sense things before they happen? Do you have a deep love for nature and animals? Do you find yourself uncomfortable in crowded, noisy places? If you answered yes to these questions, you are an empath.
My quest this week on Destination Unlimited, Raven Digitalis, knows well what it means to be an empath and shares his wisdom in his new book, Esoteric Empathy: A Magickal and Metaphysical Guide to Emotional Sensitivity.

Dr. Rita Louise - Holy Deception
Does religion reflect historical events? Were ancient peoples convinced that peoples or beings who looked different and created miracles were Gods and did this deification result in the religions practiced around the world today?

Dr. Rita Louise is a bestselling author, the host of Just Energy Radio and the Founder of the Institute Of Applied Energetics. She is the author of the books The ET Chronicles: What Myth and Legend Has To Say About Human Origin, Avoiding The Cosmic 2X4, Dark Angels: An Insider’s Guide To Ghosts, Spirits & Attached Entities and The Power Within as well as hundreds of articles that have been published worldwide.

Linda Frisch - Grandmother Allayah
As a child growing up in the 1950’s, my memories of my grandmother are warm and fuzzy. From the Hershey Bar always there for me in her apron pocket, her endless collection of Tchotchkes she was so proud of to her always wanting to make something for me to eat, even though she could barely see at that point in her late 80’s.
Linda Frisch, who is also known as Grandmother Allayah, has a slightly different set of interests, although many of them are also warm and fuzzy to me. Crystal skulls, ancient sacred relics, psychic counseling, star-seed facilitating, energy healing and hosting Circle of Hearts Radio right here on OmTimes Radio are among a few of them. Linda has collaborated on two books and joins me to share her experiences this week on Destination Unlimited.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and love is in the air…but what about those still looking for love or trying to spice up a relationship that has lost its spark…or even those trying to find the most elusive love, self-love?
In his 1993 hit written by Jim Steinman, Mealoaf sang…”I will do anything for love…but I won’t do that.” I always wondered what “that” referred to and there’s been a lot of speculation. But what if “that” had something to do with energy work and magick? Can magick bring us the lover of our dreams, refresh a love that’s grown cold or even help us to find love within?
My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Lilith Dorsey, has researched these questions with passion and experience for years. Lilith is a magical practitioner and voodoo priestess with training in several traditions, including Celtic, Afro-Caribbean, and Native American spiritualties. She owns her own magickal consulting business, Branwen’s Pantry, and is editor and publisher of Oshun-African Magickal Quarterly. She is also the author of Voodoo and Afro-Caribbean Paganism and The African-American Ritual Cookbook, and is a blogger on Patheos. She has a degree in anthropology from the University of Rhode Island and a Master of Fine Arts from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She joins us to share about her new book, Love Magic: Over 250 Spells and Potions for Getting It, Keeping It and Making It Last.

Inscribed in the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo in Delphi is the ancient Greek maxim, “Gnothi Seauton” or “Know Thyself”. How many of us really know ourselves? How many of us measure our happiness and the very nature of our existence by the external forces in our lives like relationships, family, social connections, and careers. Is there a way to really know ourselves and find inner happiness, self-love and balance? My guest this week, Agapi Stassinopoulos says there is and shares the path she has found in her new book, Wake Up To The Joy of You: 52 Meditations And Practices For a Calmer, Happier Life.
Agapi is a best-selling author and speaker who inspires audiences around the world. She was trained in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and then moved on to receive her master’s degree in psychology from the University of Santa Monica.
