Episode Description

No one has to tell you that the spiritually inclined face an uphill battle to survive, much less thrive, in a material world. One look at entertainment and the media, music, education, politics, business and finance will tell you all you need to know about the motivation that drives the world’s marketplaces: wealth, pleasure, sensory stimulation, comfort, escape. Everywhere you turn there are forces intent on casting shadows on your light, sapping your motivation to free yourself from the shackles of consumption and essentially making you a prisoner of the human experience…rather than encouraging you to live and fulfill your divine heritage. While this may sound bleak, the darkness and shadows are, in fact, merely cunning illusions. In truth, they have no power, unless we give them power. And this is the key to sustaining a spiritual life in a material world. Discernment. Discrimination. Clarity. Develop these qualities and the chains simply fall off. Sound good? Tune in.

Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher

Terry Canady and Thom Schumacher

Terry Canady, singer/songwriter, was raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and his performing and recording career has spanned nearly five decades. Recording a #1 hit record, “Mama Bear,” in Nashville, Tennessee in the early 1970s was the highlight of his career and eventually led to the creation of his own record and publishing company, Saint Adrian, through which he has produced a number of records and albums, most recently a patriotic CD titled “Give Me Liberty.” He continues to accept narration, commercial and voice-over work from his home in the beautiful Paradise Valley, just a few miles north of Yellowstone National Park.

Thom Schumacher is a copywriter, ex-seminarian, singer, percussionist, talker, plays a mean penny whistle, lyricist, RE broker and, most importantly, a student of the ascended masters. He has been gifted with an exceptional family, survived 3 marathons, navigated some very potent astrology (double Pisces!) and continuously juggles a myriad of creative challenges, not the least of which is hosting The OPEN DOOR. The threads that run through the crazy quilt of his life are love of God, Life, wife, family and gratitude for all the opportunities along the way to learn and grow.
