F.C. 10-26-18: Exploring Past Lives – Healing from Other Worlds and Other Bodies

We’re nearing that time of year again, the day when the barriers to the spirit world are said to be at their thinnest. Here on Full Circle we want to celebrate Nature’s cycle of death and rebirth by exploring some other costumes we may have tried on in the past…bodies that is. That’s right, tonight we will be speaking about past lives. We’re going to get a bit soulful and also a bit spooky at the same time here …

On tonight’s show:

  • We will speak with Susan Lyons and Dianne Wallace about their experiences helping others journey to their past lives and we will explore the powerful impact this information has had on them and their clients.
  • We will listen to accounts of real people who remembered their past lives.

All that tonight on Full Circle.

Full Circle 09-14-18 Restore Oakland

At a time when gentrification and development for capital gains are taking over all major U.S. cities, there remain people and communities committed to doing things differently. Saru Jayaraman, Zach Norris, and Liam Chinn have always been those people and are at it again right here in Oakland, California. Their shared project is called Restore Oakland, a community advocacy and job training center that will launch in Spring of 2019.

Saru, Zach and Liam join me for the hour to discuss Restore Oakland – the history that led to its vision, the organizations literally coming together at the table to make it happen, how it will serve its community, how it challenges the status quo, and how it might serve as an example for justice-oriented development in other major U.S. cities.
