The Convergence

Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

We have not seen a moment in history quite like this one. It is a moment of choice to support an evolutionary leap. In a world inevitably going global and multicultural, we can choose to live by a consciousness of wholeness, to co-create a collective vision of a just, peaceful, and flourishing world, to nurture authentic relationships, to build vibrant and compassionate communities working together to uplift all, and to join hands in building a better world. On THE CONVERGENCE, VoiceAmerica host Dr. Kurt Johnson is joined by global thought leaders from The Evolutionary Leaders Circle, and other global change-makers, in this inspiring series of radio and video presentations-- “Humanity’s Moment of Choice”. Spiritual and cultural leaders, sacred and secular activists, scientists, artists, writers, economists, politicians and even shamans join in this discussion of a world trying to wake up and grow up. What is at stake today and what are the technologies and cosmologies creating a world that can work for everyone? If you are concerned for our world's future you'll want to tune in to The Convergence on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel. See more at, a project of The Source of Synergy Foundation.
