    Monks of Vina What started out as a story of winemaking in the documentary THE MONKS OF VINA ended up being a look into the lives of the men who have dedicated themselves to a monastic life. With the challenging wine harvest of 2012 as the backdrop, the film explores the rituals and curiosities of monastic life. Along the way, the monks' faith is tested, especially among the new arrivals who recently relinquished all worldly possessions, and took their vows of poverty, obedience and chastity. Lifting a veil on the spiritual side of winemaking, THE MONKS OF VINA reveals the extreme sacrifice and devotion required in a quest to become closer to God. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Ancient Roads from Christ to Constantine [#106] Constantine In the final episode, host Jonathan Phillips explains how Rome exerted its fullest effort to eradicate Christianity.

  • 7:00 am
    The Blueprint: The Story of Adventist Education This program focuses on Seventh-day Adventist education, the third-largest private-school system in the US and the second-largest in the world. More than a century ago, Adventist Ellen White championed the now widely used "whole person" approach to education that encompasses body, mind and spirit. This "blueprint for education" specifically emphasizes skilled training, healthy living and community service within a safe, faith-based environment.
    This program ventures into the classrooms of a few of the nearly 1000 schools across the United States operated by Adventists. In many cases, these schools provide students sanctuary from troubled home lives, tough neighborhoods and negative influences. Profiled schools include: The Bronx-Manhattan School in New York, The Holbrook Navajo Indian School in Arizona, Spencerville Adventist Academy in Maryland, Fletcher Academy in North Carolina, Pinon Hills School in New Mexico and Columbine Christian School in Colorado. The film also features interviews with school administrators, teachers, students, historians and education pioneer Parker Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach.

  • 8:00 am
    Global Spirit [#207] The Art of Living and Dying Our most basic understanding of life is in many ways determined by our understanding of death. While to some, death is an end in itself, to others it is the final test of faith in the existence of a God or of an afterlife. This program presents a powerful conversation between dedicated spiritual leaders in the end-of-life movement, meeting for the first time. Harpist, singer and lay Benedictine Therese Schroeder-Sheker, founder of the Chalice of Repose Project, joins Frank Ostaseski, the Zen Hospice Project co-founder and current director of the Metta Institute, to explore how a less fearful and more conscious relationship to death can radically shift our experience of life. duration 56:49   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 9:00 am
    Global Spirit [#208] Rumi & The Sufi Path of Love How did a 13th century Sufi mystic from Central Asia become the most widely read poet in the United States? Why did UNESCO declare 2007 as "the year of Jalaluddin Rumi"? This "Global Spirit" program brings together two distinguished studio guests from different cultural traditions: Sufi sheikh Kabir Helminski of the Mevlevi Sufi tradition, and Iranian filmmaker and multi-lingual website host Parisa Soultani, who presents portraits of Rumi "lovers" from her "gathering of lovers" project. This program mixes knowledgeable, in-depth conversations with evocative film segments from Turkey, Iran and the USA to explore the depths of Rumi's poetry and teachings. Host Phil Cousineau explores questions such as: What does Rumi's poetry and message have to offer to raising religious tolerance in today's world? What does Rumi's perspective offer to discussions of extremism? What is Rumi's concept of divine Love or "Iskh"? and How is this love similar or different than what other great teachers, such as Jesus taught? duration 58:28   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 10:00 am
    Global Spirit [#209] Sacred Ecology This program explores the natural world as an access point to the sacred. With global warming on the rise and the number of animal species now declining at alarming rates, this program asks if we humans are trapped in a never-ending destructive cycle fed by our ever-increasing desires. Or do our most serious environmental problems stem in part from our very concept, or understanding of "self"? Eco-philosopher and Buddhist teacher Joanna Macy meets global ecologist, anthropologist and filmmaker Michael Tobias to explore some of the most basic existential questions: How do we see "ourselves" amongst the wider family of earth's inhabitants? Are our human notions of 'ecology" or of "the sacred" blind to nature's fundamental laws and truths? duration 57:05   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 11:00 am
    Global Spirit [#210] The Call of Wisdom 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? duration 57:18   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 12:00 pm
    Global Spirit [#211] Sound of the Soul 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." duration 56:22   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 1:00 pm
    Global Spirit [#212] Earth Wisdom for a World In Crisis 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. duration 57:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
