Matthew Alper is my guest this Sunday, March 25, 2012 on my new Progressive Radio Network show Art of Survival, at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, noon Pacific Time.

Mr. Alper is the author of “The God Part of the Brain”-a scientific interpretation of human spirituality and God,” a book that is now in its 5th edition -  a testament to its resonance among academics, social biologists, psychiatrists, psychologists and a lively, inquiring public.

Join us for a interesting discussion with this thought-provoking guest.



I am excited to be able to inform you that I have been given a new opportunity to share ideas on a talk show on airing on Sundays at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, noon Pacific Time, on the Progressive Radio Network  –    The show will also air 24/7 on the PRN archives. To listen to the show live, just click on Listen Live on the top left of the PRN screen or click on Now Playing in the center. Or if you miss the live show, you can hear it by clicking on the Archives at the link on the top or on the right side of the PRN website screen.

This new show provides me the opportunity to talk with informative, cutting edge guests on a wide range of topics dealing with our survival on every level – physical, emotional and spiritual.

Our intention is to dissolve walls of separation and division: the illusions that destroy the possibility of our living in peace with ourselves, with others and with our environment.

We need to become healers, to heal the wounds we have inflicted, particularly the wounds that we have inflicted upon ourselves. This healing can only come from our heart-mind. Our heart-mind that has been too long neglected, will take us beyond identity, to the source: to our spiritual essence.

Together with our guests, we will share a journey of discovery. If we are to survive and thrive, it is time for us to acknowledge possibilities too long denied.

I invite all of you to join in our explorations on Sundays at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, noon Pacific time, at



A Deadly Viral Contagion

Starting out very slowly, through the millennia, a stealth virus has negotiated successfully through clans, tribes, cities, states, countries and regions. One analogy might be the biblical story, with a slightly different twist…  We lived in The Garden, where everything was provided, interwoven and inseparable. However, increasingly, we preferred one fruit above all others. Apples [...]

Illusions of Separation

Illusions of separation… “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.

Stepping into the light of a new day…

As the new year unfolds before us, we look back [...]

9/11…Does Perception Trump Reality?

Too often, the blinding power of our perceptions stand like sentinels, obscuring, distorting & coloring our vision. Are manipulated perceptual illusions, having little or nothing to do with underlying realities, driving the killing machine set loose by the 9/11 tragedy? Without our conscious awareness; most of us edit and censor every thing we see, based upon what [...]

Theatre of the absurd

As I scan the main stream news and commentary, I’m shaken by the surreal nature of the unfolding narrative, shaken by the sheer nonsense, the preponderance of bold face lies and distortions; commentary disconnected from any reality that I can relate to. This theatre of the absurd, this babel would be laughable if it weren’t [...]

Love, Beyond Illusion

Now is the time to open our hearts to a transcendent loving energy… a time to keep our hearts open, even to the assaults on our humanity, our sensibilities; a time to be fully alive to all we encounter, even though at times we may want to shut down out of the pain of rejection, alienation and [...]
