Episode Description

Following "Choosing Earth", "Choosing Peace", and "Voices for a Thriving Future", the Evolutionary Leaders are thrilled to be presenting "Choosing to Serve". It features especially Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati ("Sadhviji") of the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh, India. Sadhviji is a recent recipient of President Joe Biden's Presidential Citation for Lifetime Achievement and service, and author of the recently acclaimed book FROM HOLLYWOOD TO THE HIMALAYAS: A JOURNEY OF HEALING AND TRANSFORMATION. She dialogues deeply with Convergence and Light on Light Media Host, Karuna, and Denise Scotto, Esq., Chairperson of The International Day of Yoga Committee at the United Nations. The discussion follows from this annual event, celebrated each June, and its emphasis on the ongoing myriad realms of service performed by Yoga communities all around the world. These are featured in an October 2022 special issue of LIGHT ON LIGHT MAGAZINE ( Sadhviji's work encompasses a vast area of public service including personal and environmental health, education, sanitation, public hygiene, and the well-being especially of women and children. She emphasizes that it is the "unitive consciousness"-- that we have emphasized in all these Evolutionary Leaders’ broadcasts-- spirituality, spiritual practice and the balance of Being and Doing, that well-springs a life of service. And it, in turn, ignites real Transformation-- across entire human communities. The discussion deeply relates spirituality and transformative action, on all levels of scale. It connects truly with the message of the Evolutionary Leaders’ book, featured across these broadcasts, OUR MOMENT OF CHOICE: EVOLUTIONARY VISIONS AND HOPE FOR THE FUTURE. Join us for this profound broadcast, brought to you for The International Day of Non-Violence, October 2, 2022.

The Convergence

Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

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. See more at, a project of The Source of Synergy Foundation.
