Trauma that does not go away: the loss of a child and a brother featuring the David Owens family.

Trauma that does not go away: the loss of a child and a brother featuring the David Owens family.

Here in the United States, we began to see evidence of the unprecedented challenge to our health care systems and economy and wonder if our democracy would be strong enough to withstand the attacks on our constitution. Globally our world has been challenged in a way it had not been for over 100 years. An invisible enemy has invaded our privacy, routines, expectations, and hopes. Some of you, like me, have felt mental and emotional uncertainty and unrest. Everything that could be shaken is now shaking, where noise, angry noise, drowns laughter and love. And yet, a look behind this…

Were it not for those who care featuring Ambreen Rizvi, CEO and Founder of Brigade of Mercy

Were it not for those who care featuring Ambreen Rizvi, CEO and Founder of Brigade of Mercy

To create our common thought space for this show, I ask one of my favorite questions, “What if?” Those two words are pregnant with possibilities. So, what if you believed the most outstanding service you could offer in life is to be a light on the path? What if your life becomes a shining symbol for others. What if you let everything you do be of service to someone. What if you stand tall in the knowledge of who you are. What if you stand proudly during tough times. Your affirmation might say, “Today, I am devoted to shining the light…

NEW YEAR MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS featuring Tyra G

NEW YEAR MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS featuring Tyra G

What’s so special about celebrating the New Year? “Why does the start of the new year carry such special symbolism? And why is its celebration so common around the world, as it has been for at least as long as there have been calendars? Behavior this universal must surely be tied to something basic in the human animal, something profoundly meaningful and important, given all the energy and resources we invest not just in the celebration but also in our efforts to make good on a fresh set of resolutions, even though we mostly fail to keep them. It’s fascinating…

Unwrapping your Gift: The Gift of Music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

Unwrapping your Gift: The Gift of Music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

A 2018 blog written by musicians who declare they believe in music says, “Music is simply a very special language that everyone understands. There is no feeling that cannot be described and transported through music. It preserves memories for eternity, turns dreams into reality. It caresses the soul or screams unmistakably. Music conquers fear, dries tears, gives courage and strength. It is the safe and expressive home of our emotions – with all facets between joy and pain, irrepressible lust for life, and thoughtfulness. Music can turn enemies into friends and cross borders. It can ensure that the injustices of…

Unwrapping your Gifts: Daddy Jay Little and Daughter Gia build a gift of legacy together.

Unwrapping your Gifts: Daddy Jay Little and Daughter Gia build a gift of legacy together.

Author Kahlil Gibran in his 1962 book The Prophet says, “And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children. And he said: Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life longing for itself. They come through you but not from you. And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even…

Tapping into Joy featuring Deb Beroset, award-winning journalist, speaker, and seasoned PR expert.

Tapping into Joy featuring Deb Beroset, award-winning journalist, speaker, and seasoned PR expert.

Author and coach Iyanla Vanzant, in her 2000 book, Until Today, suggests, “If you are waiting for something to happen that will make you happy, you are killing off your joy. Joy comes through you. Happiness comes to you. If you seek your joy within, you will be happy, no matter what happens. It is easy to believe in more than what you can see when you know you will be protected, guided, and blessed. If you only believe what you can see around you, you may miss the blessings right under your nose. If you have and hold love…

Were it not for those who care, featuring Jaleh Moslehi, Chairperson of the Board, of the Center for Improving Women's Lives

Susan Taylor, Essence Magazine Editor-in-Chief said in her 1993 book, In the Spirit: “There is a wisdom that is as much a part of our being as our flesh and blood and bones. Intuition, the deepest knowing. It is alive in us as children as simple faith in our feelings. But as we grow up and the outer world begins to matter more, the channel to intuition narrows. Western culture stifles intuition, dismissing what can’t be explained logically and scientifically, and discouraging reflection and feeling. It offers no real answers to how life should be lived. But life is more…

Were it not for those who care featuring developmental psychologist Suzanne Le Menestrel.

Were it not for those who care featuring developmental psychologist Suzanne Le Menestrel.

My thoughts are agitated when I look at our nation today, the one for which we are leaving a legacy. What will it look like? I think of the young girl in middle school who wants so much to escape the personal assaults she finds on social media. I think of the young man addicted to violent video games. I think of parents who see their child as lazy and distant; not understanding those behaviors could be a sign of depression. I think of the teacher who has so many children in her classroom that she cannot adequately address their…

“She Believes in Me” featuring Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

"She Believes in Me" featuring Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

Ever stop to think about the lighthouses in your life?  You know the ones… folks who especially encouraged you to keep on going when you had decided to stop; who gave when you couldn’t ask, who dried the track of your tears… and who said, “Yes you can!” They have magical timing…some stay for a season, or some stay many seasons. Some live in a surprising comment they left behind. Memories of them are tattooed on your heart. And sometimes, that memory of them feels like a do-over of their impact on your life. They planted seeds for you to…
