Hosted by Linzi Levinson
|[View Guest Page >]|
In the next hour you will hear the effective and powerful ways in which philanthropy, charity and contribution have the ability to build individual self-esteem, allow for personal growth, and develop a stable identity. We will have the privilege of listening to our guest Christopher Hill, Founder and Owner of Hands Up Holidays will discuss their organization’s purpose and mission. Chris gave up a successful investment- banking career to launch a travel and philanthropic company that includes luxury travel while giving back to community. He shares this as a lifestyle and an enlightening choice. Any life can be changed forever and the world could look much different if philanthropy was exposed and infused into children as a way of life. There is much to discuss that is not yet in effect - it is time for urgent change.
Illuminating Now! Linzi’s Life Secrets.

I am a visionary. I am a thought-leader whose ideas have yet to be heard, but someone who can help others change their life overnight. Many of my ideas and visions can be put into practical application immediately, and in some cases this results in individual lives and relationships being saved and inspired to reach potential. Relationships, wellness, parenting, divorce, depression, intimacy, sexuality, authenticity and mental health as a whole are all subjects that I can offer enlightenment on. I can provide seamless and invigorating solutions, as well as customizable strategies.
The brain is stimulating and has all the power to make us better or keep us well. Neuroscience is continuing to reveal the direct correlation between the mind, the body and the brain and the effects on the immune system when we are not living with congruency. I am a strong advocate to teach and evangelize the subliminal power, and the power of taking actions and making choices in total consciousness.
I am certified through Pepperdine Law as a Conflict Resolutionist and Mediator, through American Psychotherapy Association as a Relationship Specialist, and certified as an MFTI through the Behavioral Board of Sciences having done 5000 hours in building a private practice clientele in psychotherapy. I decided to focus on coaching, rather than therapy. I am certified through the National Institute of Health to protect participants in psychological research studies. I am a Certified Franchise Broker, Business Coach, and Consultant. I am also a Life Coach and have been for over 7 years. I am Certified as an Independent Legal Advocate and also Certified through the Business division Gobiz.com to provide legaI information and solutions to small businesses. I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a Specialization in Transpersonal from John F. Kennedy University. I have completed half of a PhD program, and have completed 2 Residencies. I am Certified as Ordained Clergy with the Universal Life Church, and am a Sexuality and Intimacy Educator. I have traveled North America as a motivational speaker to motivate individuals that worked in Sales, and I have run psychologically-based groups, such as an Intimacy Group that I fostered for a year. I also have spoken on Enneagram Panels for years. My thesis was Spiritual Awakening into Sexual Orientation, and I have expertise in the LGBTQ community, and with Depression, Bipolar, Tourette’s and all relational dynamics.

Dean Adams is a Documentary filmmaker, with a committed interest in using film – the stories we tell- to heal the world. Trust me when I tell you that Dean Adams in unique; he is on a mission to facilitate this growth into heart consciousness. Dean is a cinematographer whose work has been showcased in documentaries for the BBC, ABC News, France 24, Arte Reportage, PBS and the Discovery Channel. In 2008, he was awarded a Media Excellence Award from the International Association of Broadcasters; his half-hour film was nominated for best documentary at the Bayeux-Calvados Prize for War Correspondence. In addition to making his own films, Dean has established himself as a master trainer, running video journalism intensives for the BBC, TV4 Stockholm and RTL Germany. But it was his filmmaking workshops with refugees and underground Burmese journalists, and his contributions to the 2010 Oscar nominated documentary, Burma VJ, that opened his eyes to the empowering nature of documentary filmmaking. In 2012, Dean was recruited as part of the management team tasked with creating the Documentary Unit at the new Qatar TV. He continues his duties to the channel as Deputy Editor-In-Chief and Senior Reporter, launching new series and directing half-hour documentaries. Dean has started a grass-roots movement where Social Media and Technology intersect – this is his initiation of “10-HOPE-FILMS” (www.10hopefilms.com). Dean's future goal is to create character-driven stories from the trenches of human ingenuity, about visionaries who are leading the mantle for change in the environment, education, public health, politics, religion and science.

Graham Aitchison is 30 years old and grew up in Wellington, New Zealand. Graham has struggled with overpowering fear, depression and anxiety in his life. His relationships with those around him suffered and his childhood was very hard. He felt confused, angry and misunderstood on a daily basis. During his teenage years, his schoolwork suffered and he began drinking alcohol. He was unmotivated and did not enjoy life; it was more about simply surviving each day. Graham made a faith-based commitment at age 18 as he felt that he could go no further in his life on the path that he had been walking down. This was the turning point in his life, his launch into wellness. He was officially diagnosed with clinical depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder at age 20 and was told he would be dependent on antidepressant medication for life. However, this diagnosis did not resonate with Graham as he believed wholeheartedly that he was going to overcome his spiritual and emotional problems. Graham's journey has taken him far deeper than most and beyond the realms of conventional thinking into a spiritual universe he was deeply entangled in, but didn't really know existed. He has learned to understand the spiritual and emotional driving forces behind mental illness in his life and has begun to find real answers for his struggles. He believes that most of the practices utilized today regarding depression are only helping people to manage the problem and make it easier to deal with, rather than helping them to rid themselves of it altogether. Graham has been deeply passionate about finding real answers to the driving forces behind his mental suffering in order to heal. He has published "No Way Out But Through", a book written about Graham's journey over the years. The title is symbolic of Graham's firmly held belief that the darkest and most painful areas of one's life must be fully walked through in order to completely heal from them. View Guest page

Ted Bahr is a certified Permaculturist and founder of Prairie Sage Permaculture in Calgary, Canada. His designs have been featured in CBC Radio, The Calgary Herald, and Canada.com. Growing up in an urban environment was not enough to keep Ted from acquiring a profound respect for nature and its untapped wisdom. After some abrupt life changes during the 2009 recession, it was time to pursue his passions. He soon learned of the concept of Permaculture which is only now beginning to make inroads in North America, but quickly becoming renowned as the answer to the world’s environmental concerns, food security issues, and dependencies on limited resources.
Ted is deeply passionate about creating more resilient communities by educating people of all ages about how humans can benefit from a healthy relationship with nature and the environment and take responsibility for our own existence, rather than depending on unsustainable and unstable systems for our survival. He offers permaculture workshops, retreats, and is also the creator of the yearly Calgary Permaculture Tour, the first of its kind in that city, connecting people to the pioneers and innovators in the green movement.
Ted will be editing and co-authoring the e-magazine “The RE-Generation”, a journal of success stories relating to regenerative lifestyles, permaculture innovations, and the harmonious integration of humans and their natural environment—due out this fall. View Guest page
