The Mystical Experience (Episode #107H)

KQED Plus: Sat, Sep 29, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

From Moses on the mountain, to Jesus in the desert to Mohammed in his cave, "the mystical experience" has been acknowledged as the core event that forms the foundation of many great religions. In this Global Spirit program, host Phil Cousineau joins Benedictine monk Brother David Steindl-Rast, Rabbi Jonathan Omer-Man and sufi mystic Maata Lynn Barron to shed light on some of the common attributes of those who yearn for and reach, however momentarily, what they describe as a direct experience of God or the Divine. "The Mystical Experience" explores both experiential and analytical approaches to this rich subject.

Dreams, Visions and Realities (Episode #110H)

KQED World: Fri, Sep 21, 2012 -- 11:00 AM

Human beings have always been fascinated by their dreams, and have long debated their meaning, purpose and significance. As scientists investigate the chemical and biological origins of dreaming, many indigenous cultures explore their dreams as a deeply spiritual connection that links humanity with the core of all life. In this Global Spirit episode, host Phil Cousineau invites Jungian psychologist Dr. Stephen Aizenstat and Aboriginal elder "Yidumduma" Bill Harney into a conversation about dreaming as a connection to meaning in life. Vivid film sequences from the Australian outback mix with western imagery from Steve's Jungian tradition. The two guests share an engaging conversation of creation stories, personal anecdotes, and deep, memorable sounds from Bill's djeridoo.

Oneness: The Big Picture (Episode #109H)

KQED World: Fri, Sep 21, 2012 -- 10:00 AM

While deeply embedded in the core teachings of many great religions and almost all mystical and native traditions, the concept of "Oneness" or "Unity Consciousness" is now being explored by a growing number of scientists, who are applying the principle of Oneness to all life and the exquisite mechanism through which all living systems function and relate. In this Global Spirit episode, Deepak Chopra, a physician and best-selling author of texts on mind-body healing, shares his philosophical insights on Oneness, with Riane Eisler, an anthropologist and, best-selling author (The Chalice & the Blade). Against a background of filmed interviews with teachers from all religious traditions, audiences can witness a memorable, occasionally contentious discussion that attempts to "connect all the dots".

Exploring Consciousness: East and West (Episode #108H)

KQED World: Fri, Sep 14, 2012 -- 11:00 AM

The inquiry into human consciousness is in many ways, the "holy grail" of the entire Global Spirit series. Certainly, awareness of different stages of consciousness has been at the heart of many spiritual practices and spiritual traditions, for centuries. In this Global Spirit program, host Phil Cousineau brings together both spiritual and the scientific traditions of east and west. The program features Sraddhalu Ranade, a teacher and scientist from the ancient Hindu tradition of Vedanta, who comes to the Global Spirit studio from the Sri Aurobindo ashram in South India to meet Peter Russell, an author and spiritual practitioner with decades of relevant research and a background in physics and psychology from Cambridge University.

The Journey Towards Oneness (Episode #105)

KQED Plus: Sat, Sep 8, 2012 -- 3:00 PM

Beneath the external differences that separate the world's religions, there is a deep undercurrent of core teachings that point in the direction of Oneness, or "Unity Consciousness" - the indivisible totality of all creation, all beliefs, all religions and of the universe itself. The Journey Towards Oneness explores the concept of Oneness from both a scientific and spiritual point of view and traces its evolution and expression through different religious and spiritual traditions. The program features physicist Dr. Ravi Ravindra, who comes from the Hindu tradition, and Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, a Naqshbandi Sufi teacher and Jungian analyst. Together, these two bring a wealth of insights and spontaneity to this exciting discussion, spanning the realms of both science and mysticism.
