Love, Fear & Beyond (Episode #201)

KQED World: Thu, Oct 26, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

While most people consider the opposite of "love" to be something related to the English word, "hate", this program explores the oppositional relationship between love and fear, featuring guitarist and spiritual practitioner Carlos Santana, drummer-composer Cindy Blackman Santana and authors and therapists Gerald G. Jampolsky, M.D. and Diane Cirincione-Jampolsky, Ph.D. Mixing exciting concert footage with deep conversation, this unique program highlights the more selfless dimensions of love and the pain and suffering of fear and isolation, to ultimately provide powerful glimpses of what is here called "the beyond," a transcendent relationship with oneself, and with all of life.

Earth Wisdom for a World In Crisis (Episode #212)

KQED World: Thu, Oct 19, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

With the dramatic increase in global warming and a thinning ozone layer, the United Nations has realized that native peoples may possess some critical keys to the very survival of our species and fragile ecosystems of the planet. Host Phil Cousineau and the Global Spirit crew attend the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York City. The program documents the proceedings and interviews a range of renowned indigenous leaders and tribal representatives such as Chief Oren Lyons, Marcos Terena, Jake Swamp, Viktor Kaisiepo and Gloria Ushigua, who are joined by more than 2,000 others at a unique gathering of indigenous peoples from around the world. The program also tells a parallel story of the non-violent resistance at Standing Rock Reservation, at what was determined to be the largest gathering of native tribes in more than 100 years, with exclusive original footage of the protests in early December 2016, , along with interviews and on-location speeches from Lakota Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Standing Rock Sioux tribal chairman Dave Archambault, tribal councilwoman Phyllis Young, along with other native and non-native veterans and other water protectors.

Sound of the Soul (Episode #211)

KQED World: Thu, Oct 12, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

This episode is a compelling portrait of an Arab country where Muslims, Christians, and Jews have lived together in relative peace for centuries. This powerful music-driven documentary demonstrates how music is a unifying, transcendent force, and a powerful starting point for reducing conflict and crossing religious divides. Beautifully photographed during the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music, "Sound of the Soul," presents unforgettable performances from groups from Morocco, Ireland, Afghanistan, Mauritania, the USA, Portugal and France. An inspiring antidote to religious fundamentalism and violence, the film ultimately reveals the essential oneness among all faiths, so aptly expressed in the Afghan singer Farida Mahwash's closing affirmation: "Music has no religion, no borders, no boundaries. Music is the sound of the soul."

The Call of Wisdom (Episode #210)

KQED World: Thu, Oct 5, 2017 -- 2:00 AM

The ancient Greeks believed there was another dimension beyond logic and reasoning and they called it Sophia, or wisdom, which they believed to be the ultimate good. In Eastern traditions, wisdom is often synonymous with the Truth, as in "the true nature of existence, " available only to those who can see beyond the ephemeral, the ever-changing. This program examines the true nature of wisdom, how it is recognized, and why our survival today as a species and a planet may depend on it. The program features Jean Shinoda Bolen, an author, Jungian analyst and activist, and Roger Walsh, a professor of psychiatry, philosophy and anthropology. These two engaging guests come together for the first time to discuss this rich topic and address a range of important questions such as: Are we now as a species, headed for wisdom or catastrophe?
