Karlene Stange, The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals

Karlene Strange

Do animals have souls? Do we bond spiritually with them? How do you know your pet loves you?

Colorado country veterinarian Karlene Stange gives us the kernels of truth about the spirit, or anima, of animals from the perspective of each major religion and distills these into a very practical philosophy: "We must be grateful for the service and friendship animals provide, and celebrate their lives, honor loving memories, and have no regrets."

Vets in rural practice face especially difficult illnesses, physical conditions, and emotional trials, not like dog-and-cat vets who see their “patients” in sterile urban offices. Dr. Karlene Stange embraced these difficulties because her work led her to spiritual awareness and even bliss, despite the inevitable losses and horrors. She found that her experience was described in Jungian psychology: animals led her to her anima, her true inner self and what in Latin means “soul,” “breath,” and “life itself.”

Case examples from her practice illustrate Stange’s journey to understand the spiritual nature of the animal-human bond. This led her to Buddhist, Christian, Sufi, Islamic, Jewish, Hindu, and pagan teachings. Her evolved understanding offers us a unique interpretation of our love for animals, a compelling tour of spiritual traditions, and, ultimately, a healing and joyful engagement with the creatures with whom we share our planet.

Jenniffer Weigel, Psychics, Healers, & Mediums: A Journalist, a Road Trip, and Voices from the Other Side

Jenniffer Weigel

Jenniffer Weigel

Since the dawn of time, people have been fascinated by those who claim to have extraordinary psychic abilities. It is safe to say that many of those psychics are either extraordinary frauds or extraordinarily deluded. But could some of them be legitimate, with real gifts that can be used to help and heal? For 20 years, Emmy Award-winning journalist Jenniffer Weigel has been interviewing and investigating mediums, psychics, and healers. She gives us the fruits of her in-depth interviews with folks like Thomas John, Judith Orloff, Concetta Bertoldi, Caroline Myss, Echo Bodine, Rebecca Rosen, Paul Selig, and Michael Bodine. Also, Jenniffer got readings for both herself and and an individual previously unknown to the medium, psychic, or healer. She puts these psychically gifted people to the test―and the results are startling and profound. Listen in if you’re fascinated with communication with the dead, the idea of an afterlife, and the possibility of nontraditional healing.

Robert O. Williams, Love Is the Power: Moving Humanity from Fear to Love

Robert O. Williams

Robert O. Williams

What happens when we live all emotions, thoughts, and body feelings as love as opposed to just searching for love? We are free to give to others without need or fear. That is the power of love and pure heart consciousness.

Robert O. Williams leads us into the intimate journey of his life through the vivid memories of his unique childhood, an inspiring account of his talent and perseverance as a saxophone player, his introduction to Transcendental Meditation (TM), his magical time performing and recording with The Beach Boys, and the extraordinary journey through multiple near-death experiences and visits with other dimensions which culminated in three decades of research and invention of Quantum Code Technology™ and the Heart+ App.

Williams said, “The fact that we were able to develop a proven technology to strengthen our physical hearts as well as serve in the awakening of our spiritual hearts is, for me, an indication that we truly can raise consciousness through technology.” Love Is the Power is not about the search for love, romantic or otherwise; rather, it is about being love.

OolaGuys, Oola for Women: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World

Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun

Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun

Oola is that state of awesomeness you experience when your life is balanced and growing in all the key areas of health and well-being. It can be a noun or a verb, a destination or a feeling.

Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun, the OolaGuys, know that women are the ultimate multitaskers. While a circus performer might spin seven plates in a single show, women spin seven plates―figuratively―every day. They not only juggle kids, family, and home life, they also juggle work responsibilities, make constant business decisions, handle professional events, and so much more that it's truly mind-boggling what a woman can pack into a 24-hour day.

To truly live an OolaLife, it’s paramount to identify those toxic traits that hold us back from finding balance and growth in the seven F’s of Oola—fitness, finance, family, field (career), faith, friends and fun—and embrace the transformational characteristics that will help accelerate this journey to greatness.

The OolaGuys will talk about the experiences of 54 inspiring women, how to overcome unexpected hardships, and transform the juggling act of everyday life into a dream lifestyle of simplicity, tranquility, abundance, and opportunity.

Thomas Sterner, Fully Engaged: Using the Practicing Mind in Daily Life

Tom Sterner

Tom Sterner

Are you fully engaged, present in this moment, completely content? Our culture encourages our minds to be overactive, anxious, longing for the future or regretting the past.

Thomas Sterner, bestselling author of The Practicing Mind, shows us how simple shifts in perspective — such as learning to center our attention on the process of what we are doing instead of what we are trying to achieve; using goals as guides instead of reminders of what is left to be done; and learning to work without judgment about the process — can completely transform the experience of going through each day.  

He says, “Everything in life comes from practice. No matter how small or inconsequential we think it is, everything we do, from brushing our teeth to getting through a scary job interview, comes from practice, the deliberate repetition of an action with an awareness of what we want to achieve.” And it works!

Karen_Tate_edited-1-1-300x298.jpg

The Sacred Feminine is returning from exile, as people from all walks of life and cultures turn to Goddess, deity, archetype and ideal, to evolve from the malignant chaos we face today. They're listening to their consciences, heart wisdom, and intuition to manifest a new normal. They're practicing partnership, generosity, and compassion to establish a new way of being. They're tapping into their empathy and morality as they hit the reset button.

Mark Coleman, Make Peace with Your Mind

Mark Coleman

Mark Coleman

You know your Inner Critic, the voice that says you’re not enough, not good enough, or sometimes...too much.

Renowned meditation teacher Mark Coleman helps us see where it comes from, and what strengthens and weakens it. He’ll share insights into what creates, drives, and disarms the Inner Critic; examples from real people’s healing journeys that inspire and guide; tools we need to begin turning the lens of attention toward our own minds, with kindness and clarity. You’ll learn simple exercises you can immediately put into practice to invite, cultivate, and nurture your best self and make peace with your mind.

“The good news coming out of neuroscience is that your brain and negative habits can change based on how you use your attention,” writes Coleman. “When you see how much your inner critic robs you of peace and well-being, you will be less apt to give it your loyalty and attention.”

Kayt Sukel, The Art of Risk: The New Science of Courage, Caution & Chance

Kayt Sukel

Kayt Sukel

Are risk-takers born or made? Kayt Sukel uses cutting-edge research to illustrate which parts of the brain drive behavior, the different genes and neurochemicals at play, and the “particular blend of biology and experience held within that allows us to know what risks are worth taking and what risks should be left alone.”

She shows us the fascinating neurological pathways that provide the “gas” and the “brakes” when we are faced with a risky decision. And she shares human interest stories from the boardroom, the classroom, the playing field, and military frontlines.

Marrying the knowledge of science with the wisdom of those who have played the game and won--professional poker players, female firefighters, top neurosurgeons--Kayt gives us a few key rules to reset our definitions of risk and shows how to put artful risk-taking into action.

Pouline Middleton, One Woman, Three Men: Conscious dating

Pouline Middleton

Pouline Middleton

Who says you have to find "the one"? How about three men; one to talk about the meaning of life with, one to be intimate with, and one to be an handyman?

Divorced single mother Pouline made up her mind to date three different men, one for each area that was important to her. She began a very transparent conscious dating search online. Every man she connected with knew her plan and needed to state which area he wished to be considered for. The interactions were fun, funny and profound. 

Since creating Modern Love, Pouline has coached hundreds of people to get in touch with their three most important areas, whatever they may be. Her process also works for men seeking women and same-sex couples. It's fun, but under the humor is a serious look at bringing our highest consciousness to modern love and sex. Laugh and learn!
