1/18/08 -"Art and Consciousness"
How can art bridge the seemingly conflicting forces of science and spirituality? Why must we move towards a global consciousness and how can art help? If these questions interest you, be sure to join listen to our guest, Jeffrey Milburn, founder of Omni Art and author of the new book Omni Art: Language of Consciousness. His book, seeking to expand awareness, is designed to provoke, and broadens the consciousness of the observer.
It’s a new kind of art that Jeffrey says “celebrates the beginning of a spiritual awareness that can transform social consciousness at every level of society…It’s about the confluence of human evolution and consciousness, as expressed through the medium of art.”
During the show we will talk with Jeffrey about the five dimensional model of human experience - the physical, astral, causal, mental, and the etheric. We’ll talk about the Omni Art movement and its relationship to consciousness. Be sure to tune in for a very thought provoking hour.

3/7/08 -"Goods of Conscience"
Karen welcomes Father Andrew O’Connor, founder and director of the not for profit organization Goods of Conscience. Fr. Andrew is a Diocesan priest ordained by the Archdiocese of New York in 1996. In 2005 Fr. Andrew created Goods of Conscience after a retreat in rural Guatemala. The original goal was to preserve the ancient Mayan tradition of back-strap weaving which has become a lost art since fewer and fewer people are clothed in traditional garments. Along with preserving this art he wanted to provide the weavers a living wage. This initial idea grew into what Goods of Conscience has become today; an apparel line that employs Mayan Indian weavers in Guatemala and underemployed sewers in the Bronx to produce clothes that look good, feel good and do good. Join us to hear Father Andrew talk about this amazing business venture that means so much to so many.
