We cover many topics, from superstitions to conspiracy theories, and the truth that correlation does not equal causation. Please join us for another exploration of the human experience!

Mindful Expansion - What is Self-Awareness?

Human consciousness is a wonderful thing. Our ability to be self-aware has allowed us to explore the great questions of existence, what it means to be alive and truly appreciative of the world around us as well as our place in it. But while our sentience allows us to experience wondrous complexity and the beauty of life, it comes with a price. There is not one person that will walk this earth that has not felt the pain and sorrow that existence can bestow. Our awareness of the darkness of the world can be overpowering at times, but when context and balance is restored to our awareness, we find not only incredible strength but also that, often, the world isn’t quite as dark as we feared. Join us on another Spirit of Life broadcast as we grapple with the essential questions of Metaphysical Humanism!

Mindful Expansion - How Fiction Affects Reality

Our actions change the world around us in innumerable and profound ways, and tonight we look at what drives those actions. Our beliefs and thoughts lead to our actions and behaviors which shape the society and world in which we live. We examine art in various forms, but focus on fiction. Fiction also has a unique ability to shape our perception, to affect the world we live in, and often in ways that don't fully show themselves for generations. Life influences art, which influences life in a wondrous cycle of creativity and spurs the change of our society. Please join us for another Spirit of Life as we continue to strive for a better understanding of the world around us!
