0 Comments MWS Podcast #9 - May 4, 2011 - Regulation Vs. Self-Actualization
Posted by thethreadsthatbindus on June 4, 2011 at 3:36 PM

The ladies and their guests talk about the merits and flaws of personal gnosis "self-actualization" versus guidance, mentorship, rules and "regulation." Matters discussed range from whether or not the government should legislate alternative health access; whether or not it is valuable or limiting to have mentorship in spiritual and psychic development and why; the value of initiation in such traditions as Reiki, Shamanism and Wicca, and whether or not such experiences and rituals are valuable or even necessary; why a traditional lack of regulation in the spiritual, metaphysical and alternative health fields have created problems in the past and how to avoid those problems; how life experience can create their own initiations; the beauty of personal gnosis and individual spiritual development; pitfalls to watch out for when choosing a teacher or practitioner; and how to recognize and avoid destructive practitioners and mentors.

Length: 1 hour 55 minutes 20 seconds.

Posted by thethreadsthatbindus on May 10, 2011 at 5:50 PM

A lively crew of guests and the ladies discuss how being wounded sometimes makes us better healers, and what it means to be wounded and a healer. Topics covered include living with disability, what it means when the powers of Manifestation fail to "cure," how pain and disability can improve healing and empathic ability, near-death experiences and mystical enlightenment, shamanism, death ritual traditions in mystical pathways, the emotionally wounded healer, the Law of Attraction, caregiving, acknowledging your feelings but remaining positive, life and death. Quite a few personal stories are shared and no voice goes unheard.

Length: 1 hour 54 minutes 50 seconds.
