Beth Amine, Founder of Joyous Movement is Penning a Book on Joyous Living


Beth Amine is a long-time resident of Santa Barbara.  To say that she is multi-talented is a gross understatement.  Beth is both a professional artist and a dancer.  Realizing that living creatively has long been a key to her own happiness, she developed a way to inspire and help seniors to re-discover their own joy through a movement and dance program called Joyous Movement.   This program has been used at several senior centers in the Santa Barbara area and the results have been miraculous.  She has also created a series of Joyous Movement DVDs and has started training others the Joyous Movement methodology so they can become certified instructors.  Beth is dedicated to helping others to discover their joyous selves and is writing a ‘how to’ book which will be a guide to living every day in a state of joy.  Her upcoming book was the topic of my radio interview with Beth.

Dr Eben Alexander

Dr Eben Alexander

In 2008, Dr Eben Alexander had a near-death experience that would forever change his outlook on life.  In 2008, he spent seven days in a coma due to severe bacterial meningitis.  While in a coma, with his brain shut down, he experienced a spectacular odyssey to realms beyond our known physical universe—an ultra-real journey that ran counter to all conventional neuro-scientific views about the brain, mind and consciousness. This led him to write the best-selling book Proof of Heaven, and later, The Map of Heaven.

In this revealing interview Eben discusses his journey to the other side, his miraculous healing,  the concept of non-linear time, reincarnation and  soul groups.

Dr. Eben Alexander, together with Karen Newell, co-founder of Sacred Acoustics and Dr. Gary Schwartz, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Arizona and director of its Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health, will be leading a weekend of personal exploration at Sedona Mago Retreat, Oct 7-9.

A Conversation with Randy Davila, Author, Publisher & Teacher

Don’t miss this fascinating interview with the multi-faceted Randy Davila!

Host, Patti Teel

Host, Patti Teel

Book 1

Randy Davila is the author of The Gnostic Mystery and Think like a Publisher.  He is also the president of Hierophant Publishing and Hampton Roads Publishing Company.  They focus on books that help you to evolve your Mind, Body and Spirit.

He is also the author of two very different books, Gnostic Mystery and Think Like a Publisher.

In this fascinating and varied interview, Randy takes us back in time and explains the beliefs and teachings of the Gnostic Christians.  One of the central themes of the book is that many of the gospel stories were written as teaching parables and were not meant to be taken literally.

Randy’s second book, Think Like a Publisher, is a non-fiction book that explains the nuances of the publishing industry in an easily understandable manner.

This accomplished author and publisher is also the president of Insight Events USA, a company that organizes online classes and live events to enlighten and evolve our mind, body and spirit.  According to Randy, in today’s world, it’s not enough for people to read a book—they want to put the tools into practice.FBshare-Shamans-Sedona-1024x536

Randy and Insight Events USA are bringing Don Miguel Ruiz, HeatherAsh Amara and other leading shamanic teachers of our day to Sedona Mago Retreat April 8 – 10.  While this inspiring event is sold-out, we are hoping that they will return next year.  I’ll keep you posted.
