Episode Description

We know that most of the cocaine that hits the streets of America comes from Colombia, and nothing has stopped the drug trade, because nothing has yet stopped us from using. But now let’s look at the drug trade from the other side. What impact has the trade, the War on Drugs and a decades-old civil war had on Colombia? On Central America and Mexico? How is the impact showing up at our borders? And what signs of Inner Revolution shine through? Anastasia Moloney, a British-born correspondent for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, has been covering the violence, the human rights violations and the astounding inspirational stories of some amazing Colombians from her base in Bogota. She’ll share stories of forgiveness and healing; resilience and courage; men confronting machismo; and women creating an Inner Revolution in the face of a culture of violence that has lasted for decades. Meet this inspiring journalist, who tells her own story and theirs. And see how their stories relate to us.

Inner Revolutionary Radio

Thursday at 3 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel

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. Tune in, participate, and support this vision.

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.
