Episode Description

In our world people have either chosen or been forced to abandoned long-held roles along gender lines. If the woman earns more money, she has to work. If the man’s schedule allows him more time, he needs to take on more child-rearing. In addition, many of us are sick of traditional concepts of male and female. Do “sexy” uncomfortable clothes make us women? Does grunting monosyllabic answers about our feelings make us male? Even if we let these obvious stereotypes go, how many other preconceived notions are we carrying? The sweet understanding woman? The brave man at the battlefield? While traditional roles are crumbling on the outside, aren’t they still clinging to us on the inside? Join us as host Beth Green interviews Lynn Hillix and Todd Benton, two folks who have lived or are living role reversals in their homes. How does it feel? What inner conflicts still haunt them? And what about you? Where do you still long to break free? Email your questions or comments. Join us and call in!

You count! Your voice, compassion and dedication to doing the right thing are part and parcel of the Inner Revolution that is sweeping our world, and Inner Revolutionary Radio is your platform. We may not be perfect, but we are standing up to mindless conformity, facing our negative patterns and beliefs, working together to make this a better world. Inner Revolutionary Radio gives us a voice and a way of joining forces. We share a vision: a recognition of our Oneness with one another and the planet; an acknowledgement of our Accountability for our impact on ourselves and each other; a dedication to Mutual Support, knowing that we can’t thrive in a world that is not also thriving. And we’re developing the courage to stand up to all tyrannies, even those in our heads. Each week we offer News of the Inner Revolution and introduce you to guests who are shaking up the world.

Helen Hillix, Todd Benton and Chris Reese

Helen Hillix, Todd Benton and Chris Reese met many years ago, when our journeys for inner healing brought us to the InnerRevolution.Org. Under the guidance of Beth Green, the organization’s founder, we evolved into spiritual activists who support the three principles of The Inner Revolution: Oneness, Accountability and Mutual support – in all areas of life. Ultimately, there is no personal healing; no one person can be well in a world where others are suffering. It takes a collective shift in awareness for sustainable change and for everyone to thrive. InnerRevolutionary radio was Beth Green’s baby, and now it’s our turn to nurture this platform and share the vision: gathering others and sharing work that is being done around the world under many different banners to bring more consciousness into personal, political, spiritual and business arenas. As co-hosts of InnerRevolutionary Radio, Helen, Todd and Chris bring you a weekly opportunity to confront mindless traditions, look at how we separate from one another, and learn to transform our thinking. And, once a month we interview Beth, who is an amazingly wise, compassionate, and funny woman. We have day jobs too: Helen is an intuitive counselor, Todd a web developer, and Chris is an insurance industry executive. Each of us practices the principles of Oneness, Accountability and Mutual Support in all aspects of our lives. It’s a ride, with ups and downs, and worth every minute of it! Join us to learn, laugh and evolve.
