January 28, 2022
Hosted by Dr. Kurt Johnson, with Ben Bowler, Doug King and our Correspondents
Human beings have a powerful affinity for stories. Stories from the deepest levels of our being and experience—spiritual stories-- have potent effects on how we live our lives. Deepak Chopra (METAHUMAN) and Gregg Braden (THE WISDOM CODES) join William Henry, Sister Jenna, Sister Jayanti, Temple Hayes, Oscar Miro-Quesada, Steven Farmer, Mindahi Bastida Muñoz and J. J. and Desiree Hurtak (authors from the COMMON SENTIENCE book series) In inspiring discussion for this VoiceAmerica Convergence Special. Ariel Patricia of Sacred Stories Publishing and Media and Dr. Kurt Johnson of The Convergence (OUR MOMENT OF CHOICE) host. From their own experience, guests discuss the power of spiritual stories across the mystical arenas of meditation and contemplation, our relationship to nature and the landscape of indigenous shamanism, and the process of personal maturation, awakening and ascension. The emerging science of story speaks to narrative’s exceptional power to shape minds and hearts. We find good stories captivating, even spellbinding, and story narratives move us in ways rational argument can’t. In these turbulent times, sharing our spiritual stories can lead us to lives of goodness, altruism and abiding well-being.

We have not seen a moment in history quite like this one. It is a moment of choice to support an evolutionary leap. In a world inevitably going global and multicultural, we can choose to live by a consciousness of wholeness, to co-create a collective vision of a just, peaceful, and flourishing world, to nurture authentic relationships, to build vibrant and compassionate communities working together to uplift all, and to join hands in building a better world. On THE CONVERGENCE, VoiceAmerica host Dr. Kurt Johnson is joined by global thought leaders from The Evolutionary Leaders Circle, and other global change-makers, in this inspiring series of radio and video presentations-- “Humanity’s Moment of Choice”. Spiritual and cultural leaders, sacred and secular activists, scientists, artists, writers, economists, politicians and even shamans join in this discussion of a world trying to wake up and grow up. What is at stake today and what are the technologies and cosmologies creating a world that can work for everyone? If you are concerned for our world's future you'll want to tune in to The Convergence on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
