The Mystical Experience (Episode #107H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 30, 2013 -- 11:00 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.

The Shaman, The Spirit Healer and the Earth (Episode #106)

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 23, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

For native peoples everywhere, life is a gift that must be respected and honored. In this Global Spirit episode, host Phil Cousineau is joined by Flordemayo, a Mayan spirit healer, and Angaangaq, an Eskimo-Kalaalit Shaman from Greenland. Meeting for the first time, these two indigenous guests share their ancient wisdom and knowledge about man's relationship to nature, as well as the profoundly sacred nature of all life. Compelling footage from Greenland and the deep forests of North America provide the visual backdrop for this memorable meeting of two Native peoples and cosmologies.

The Journey Towards Oneness (Episode #105)

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 16, 2013 -- 11:00 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.

Art and the Creative Spirit (Episode #104H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 9, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

What makes art sacred? Does the creative spirit lie within the artist, or is it channeled through the artist from some "higher power"? This episode of Global Spirit seeks answers to these and other questions by looking at various sacred art forms, and by engaging with artists who speak eloquently about the spiritual aspect of the creative process. The program presents the work and teachings of Buddhist artist and teacher Lama Lhanang Rinpoche as well as Pueblo Indian sculptor Estella Loretto. Visually engaging and emotionally uplifting, this Global Spirit episode imparts new insights and discoveries about sacred art and the creative spirit from spiritual traditions as distant and seemingly disconnected as Tibet and the American Southwest.

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 2, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

In this episode of Global Spirit, host Phil Cousineau explores the transcendent qualities of spiritual and sacred music with guests Rev. Alan Jones, and Grammy-award-winning singer and member of the Native American Onondaga tribe Joanne Shenandoah. Experience the power of liturgical musical performances in Latin from Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, and witness powerful, live studio performances by Joanne Shenandoah and a haunting sequence from Peter Brook's film, "Meetings with Remarkable Men" with sacred sounds resonating across the Afghan mountaintops.
