Episode Description

How did we get this way? Have we ever valued collaboration over conflict? Or, is this the only story we know ~ one of competition, discrimination and the overpowering of others 'less worthy'? Could our preferred, inter-relational and environmental, expressions of violence and abuse, become our legacy? Join me and my guest, Eric Francis Coppolino, of Planet Waves, to investigate humanity's deeply-seeded exclusionary and inclusionary behavior patterns. We'll probe the status quo of the (in)discriminate dismissal of individual human rights (based on gender, race, culture, nationalism, religious beliefs, body type...). We'll look to Eris and Chiron to help us unravel the symbolism of this - one of humanity's current lessons.

Michael Brady is the co-founder and V.P. of Partners for Karmic Freedom, with a M.A. in Clinical and Developmental Psychology from Anitoch University. His psychotherapy and karmic astrology background make him an excellent life coach in soul/personality integration, hypnosis and past life regression. The Bradys’ book, THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD: A Baby Book for Your Inner Child, investigates the integration of mind, body and soul. “People are diverse and complicated, with conscious and unconscious aspects. The inner child exemplifies the unconscious at work, wreaking havoc on our holistic health through poor choices. When as adults we become good parents to that child, we live healthier, more conscious lives. The integration of child and adult resolves the mind – body paradigm. The other piece to that integration is our connection to our divine power source, or soul. Listening to and following our inner guidance is the key to having the will and determination to change our lives.” View Guest page
