People I Interviewed  E-mail

 

These are just a few of the people I have interviewed that are in my book.

Dhara's Active MeditationDhara Lemos

It is sometimes easy, or convenient, to forget that we need to do the inner work in clearing out old beliefs and habits in order to let new information in unfiltered. For some time now a select group of people (researchers, teachers, and masters) have known about "active meditations" specifically for the human condition in Western civilization. Among this group is Dhara Lemos who has practiced and taught these meditations for over 25 years. I urge you to take this aspect of self-learning and conscious development very serious.

You can visit her website at www.dharalemos.com.


Rick Ray and the Dalai LamaRick Ray did a documentary called 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama. I was curious to know what he asked the Dalai Lama that may not have made it to the film. Some of the Dalai Lama's answers surprised me but it was his lack of answers that most intrigued me, like when he was asked if there was a solution to the conflict going on in the Middle East. The Dalai Lama said that the best thing to do would be to get everyone to come to a picnic and have a good time and not talk. This was his way, I think, of saying that the problem is communication. Until we can get all the religious groups to take a hard look at their divisive beliefs, communication is virtually impossible.

Joe Dispenza

 

Joe Dispenza, D.C. studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He has a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience from Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA.

Dr. Emoto, Hidden Messages in Water

Masaru Emoto was born in Yokohama in July 1943. He is a graduate of the Yokohama Municipal University's department of humanities and sciences with a focus on International Relations. In 1986 he established the IHM Corporation in Tokyo. In October of 1992 he received certification from the Open International University as a Doctor of Alternative Medicine. Subsequently he was introduced to the concept of micro cluster water in the US and Magnetic Resonance Analysis technology. The quest thus began to discover the mystery of water. Dr. Emoto found that water can hold intention. This becomes obviously important when we consider the fact that we are made mostly of water.

Timothy Freke

 

Of course my book would not be complete without the input of Timothy Freke. Seldom do you get to hear someone speak so clearly about something so divisive as religious beliefs and still be in their hear and compassionate. He is the author of Lucid Living, Jesus Mysteries, and many more.

Gary Zukav & Linda Francis with Dhara and Rahasya

 

Meeting with Gary Zukav has been on my list ever since I read The Dancing Wu Li Masters many many years ago. My wife and I met with him and his partner Linda Francis in Seattle while doing his Spiritual Partnership workshop.

Bruce Lipton, author of Biology of Belief

 

Meeting with Bruce Lipton and having several interviews has been an adventure into the realm of the biology and cellular aspects of beliefs. He is the author of Biology of Belief. The photo was taken with Bruce and Margaret and my wife Dhara.

Lynn McTaggart, author of The Field and The Intention Experiment


Lynn McTaggart lives in London and wrote The Field and more recently The Intention Experiment. Lynn has had the opportunity to meet many neuroscientists and researchers so her input was invaluable.

Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God


Of course we had to visit Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations With God. His interview on this subject was quite rewarding in surprising ways.

Rollin McCraty, Head reasearcher at HeartMath.

 

Rollin McCraty is the head researcher for Heartmath Institute. There research lies in the area of bringing the heart in coherence with the brain. One of the things that came out in the interview was how people with rigid belief systems are out of coherence, or touch, with their hearts. Since a person receives massive amounts of signals from the heart to the brain, this is in no small part indicative of the disconnect we see with religious people in the fervor to "spread the word" at any cost.

Immaculee Ilbagiza

I thought it would be important to see what Immaculee, a Rwanda survivor, would have to say about forgiveness. It's an easy task to point out what's wrong with our world but without learning to forgive the "others" we will perpetuate our situation indefinitely.

We shouldn't delude ourselves any longer, without learning to forgive and be compassionate we will never create a better world. There will always be a reason for retribution and revenge as the Middle east has graphically pointed out to us for the last 3,000 years.

Dan Millman

Dan Millman is best known for his best selling book, The Peaceful Warrior which was made into a movie by the same name with Nick Nolte. Talking with him was a reminder that very extraordinary things happen to us when we least expect it and it's what we learn from those events and people that determine the depth of our character.

Fred Alan Wolf
Fred Alan Wolf, a quantum physicist on the cutting edge for many years. He has never hesitated to step out beyond the safe confines of the academia. He is also known as Dr. Quantum for his work with bringing quantum physics to the younger generation to cultivate the desire to know more.

Amit Goswami
Professor of physics at the University of Oregon and a member of its Institute of Theoretical Science, Dr. Goswami is a revolutionary in a growing body of renegade scientists who in recent years have ventured into the domain of the spiritual in an attempt both to interpret the seemingly inexplicable findings of their experiments... and to validate their intuitions about the existence of a spiritual dimension of life.

Amit Goswami had an interesting take on religious beliefs and the state of the world we live in. He also had some interesting ideas on what we can do to bring about change.www.amitgoswami.org


Swami Kriyananda
Swami Kriyananda was probably one of the most gentle souls I have ever met with. He was one of Paramahansa Yogananda's first disciples and for many years has had the Expanding Light Retreat in Nevada City, CA.

At the age of 22, Swami Kriyananda began the adventure of his lifetime: the search for joy in God. His guide was the great yogi, Paramhansa Yogananda.

In the 60 years since, Kriyananda has become one of Yogananda’s foremost disciples, inspiring thousands all over the world. His two consuming desires are “to find God, and to help others find Him.”

Drunvalo MelchizedekDrunvalo Mechizdedek is the author of four books including The Ancient Secrets of the Flower of Life, Volumes I and II, Living in the Heart and his newest one, Serpent of Light. These books have been published in 29 languages and reach out to over one hundred countries throughout the world. My wife and I met him many years ago after taking his Flower of Life workshop and then his Earth Sky workshop. His knowledge of sacred geometry and ancient history leave little doubt as to his authenticity. One reason why I put so much credibility on what he says is because of my personal experiences with him. I have seen things with my own eyes that left no doubt that he is an exceptional being.

Peter Russell

If you haven't had the opportunity to watch the Global Brain by Peter Russell, you need to visit his website and order it soon. It is an excellent way to introduce both young and old to the fact that we live on a planet that is in itself a living being.

Andrew Newberg

 

 

Some of the topics covered with Andrew Newberg have to do with the importance of new information coming out of neuroscience in regard to exactly what happens in the brain when we "believe." His studies have shown:



  • Not only do prayer and spiritual practice reduce stress and anxiety, but just twelve minutes of meditation per day may slow down the aging process.
  • Contemplating a loving God rather than a punitive God reduces anxiety, depression, and stress and increases feelings of security, compassion, and love.
  • Fundamentalism, in and of itself, is benign and can be personally beneficial, but the anger and prejudice generated by extreme beliefs can permanently damage your brain.
  • Intense prayer and meditation permanently change numerous structures and functions in the brain-altering your values and the way you perceive reality.

Byron Katie
Byron Katie became severely depressed in her early thirties. She was a businesswoman and mother living in a little town in the high desert of southern California. For almost a decade she spiraled down into paranoia, rage, self-loathing, and constant thoughts of suicide; for the last two years she was often unable to leave her bedroom. Then, one morning in February 1986, while in a mental health treatment facility, she experienced a life-changing realization. Katie's experience was similar to spiritual awakenings described in Buddhist and Hindu traditions under various names; she calls it "waking up to reality." In that moment of enlightenment, she says,
I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn't believe them, I didn't suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always.
