Marianne Williamson | Getting Unstuck
Living A Life Of Love, Enthusiasm & Gratitude
While Creating The Courage To Handle Whatever Comes Your Way
With getting to a certain age, with kids in school, jobs (you know “just above broke”), working at a place that maybe doesn’t thrill you but you need the health insurance, there can be a sense of being stuck, hitting the glass ceiling of life, here I am but there I want to be and there seems to be know plausible way of getting there. There seems to be little momentum, little movement, except maybe backward.
There is that famous quote by Albert Einstein where he said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Well it’s hard to look at life as a miracle when frustrated, disappointed and anger are blocking love, appreciation, and gratitude.
How do you get unstuck? Or maybe another way of asking that is, why do some of us seem to plateau at mediocre and how do you move to great?
Dr. Joe Dispenza | The Placebo Effect: Healing By Thought Alone
It is interesting to note that throughout history “witch doctors” and shamans have healed people (and made them sick) using hexes, curses, witchcraft, voodoo, and other mysterious phenomena. These stories are often laughed about and shrugged off yet even today scientists and researchers are giving control groups sugar pills in their studies and seeing miraculous healing.
Is it possible to harness the healing power of the mind? And more importantly is it possible to teach the scientific principles of the placebo effect?
In his book You Are the Placebo, Dr. Joe Dispenza shares numerous documented cases of those who reversed cancer, heart disease, depression, crippling arthritis, and even the tremors of Parkinson’s disease by believing in a placebo.
Listen in to my interview with Dr. Dispenza and learn how you can heal by thought alone.
Gregg Braden | Life In Crisis: Using Science and Spirituality To Reclaim Our Future
There’s a time when every crisis can become transformation, when simply surviving can become joyous thriving.
We can solve our problems based upon the way we thing of ourselves and the world. It’s our willingness to think differently about ourselves and the world that will be the key to the success of our journey.
From the relationships in our own lives, our health and our own finances to peak oil, failing world economies and climate change, it’s clear that our lives and world are changing in ways we’ve never seen, to a degree we’re not prepared for, and at speeds that we’ve never experienced.
It is also clear that the thinking of the past will no longer be enough and we can no longer wait for “normal” and the good old days to return.
Teal Swan | Ending Self Hatred
“We all know on some level that it is important to love ourselves. But when people say that ‘all you have to do in love yourself,’ it’s kind of like telling a child in kindergarten that he or she has to solve a college physics equation. Like that bewildered child, we have no idea where to begin. We are standing in a place where we don’t love ourselves and haven’t for some time. We simply have no idea where to start and where to go from here.”
That’s the first paragraph in the introduction of Teal Swan’s book Shadow’s Before Dawn: Finding The Light of Self-Love Through Your Darkest Times.
A friend introduced me to this book and after reading it through and going through some of the excises to help you cultivate self-love I felt Teal was somebody I wanted to share with you on Tipping Point Radio. Her story is remarkable and her journey to creating self love in her own life is extraordinary.
Dr. Bruce Lipton | The Science Behind Creating Happiness, Passion and Health Everyday
You may have heard of the Honeymoon Effect, that state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love in your life. Your life is so beautiful that you can’t wait to get up to start a new day and thank the Universe that you are alive. Think back on the most spectacular love affair of your life—the Big One that toppled you head over heels.
For most, it was a time of heartfelt bliss, robust health, and abundant energy. Life was so beautiful that you couldn’t wait to bound out of bed in the morning to experience more Heaven on Earth. Unfortunately for most, the Honeymoon Effect is frequently short lived. Imagine what your day to day experience would be like if you could maintain the Honeymoon Effect throughout your whole life.
So I’ve got to ask: what if the Honeymoon Effect was not a chance event or a coincidence, but a personal creation? How do we lose the Honeymoon Effect in the first place and is it possible to manifest it on purpose?
With me today is Dr. Bruce Lipton internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit and a leading voice in new biology. Bruce was on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and later performed groundbreaking stem-cell research at Stanford University.
Dr. Lipton is the bestselling author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles; Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here) and The Honeymoon Effect: The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth.
John McLaughlin | A Spiritual Quest in Music
Today I’m going to share with you another interview for the Music and Spirituality series and I’m talking with jazz guitar great John McLaughlin.
John was introduced to the jazz world by playing with Miles Davis on In A Silent Way and Bitches Brew, he then went on to form two very influential fusion bands in the 70s, electric-fusion-jazz band Mahavishnu Orchestra and world-fusion acoustic band Shakit, and I’m just mentioning a hand full of John enormous discography.
John has recorded over 80 albums in his career and though they cover many different styles of jazz they are all infused and grounded by a spirituality that John has been cultivating since his early 20’s.
This is a rare interview for John to discuss his spiritual side rather than the usual interview that finds him talking jazz and the guitar, and I tell you it’s a great one.
Amy Jo Goddard | Sex • Passion • Desire
Recently I received an invitation to interview Amy Jo Goddard. If you are not familiar with Amy Jo she wrote the classic best seller Lesbian Sex Secrets for Men. Well, it is the 15 anniversary of the publication of that book and she was releasing a revised and expanded edition.
I thought Amy Jo would be a great guest for the show so we booked an interview. Well her publisher not only sent the revised edition of Lesbian Sex Secrets for Men but also her brand new book Woman On Fire – 9 Elements To Wake Up Your Erotic Energy, Personal Power And Sexual Intelligence.
In her new book Amy Jo shares how to get in touch with desire, explore vulnerability and play, and push the boundaries of what we think is acceptable. As I starting reading both books I thought it would make the interview that much more interesting if a couple were interviewing Amy Jo. So I invited my wife of 22 years Kristina to join the show.
Howard Martin of HeartMath | Thinking With Your Heart
In the last few years, more people than ever — from different backgrounds and walks of life — are talking about the heart. More company mission statements make a point to mention the importance of the heart in leadership and customer care.
More speakers, articles and books, both spiritual and non-spiritual, are referring to the heart. Whether people mention speaking from the heart, listening to the heart, connecting with the heart, or following the heart, it is a clear sign that there is increased awareness and movement toward using your heart in all of life’s decisions and actions.
But just what does that mean?
Is it possible to move past a philosophical view of the heart and use the latest science and research on the heart to make a better life? Does the heart do more than actually pump blood through out your body and can we harness the power, dare I say intelligence, of the heart to create a happier, more successful and healthier world for ourselves and those around us?

Lee Holden | Don’t Push The River The Secret Power of Qigong
If our bodies are made of energy might there be a way to manage and even manipulate that energy to heal our bodies and create the health and vitality we so desire?
The ancient Chinese energy practice of qi gong says that you can.
I wanted to dive into the deep end of qi gong and understand how to better use the energy in my body and even increase the energy in my body.
Lee Holden is an internationally celebrated qi gong master and well-known television personality who has appeared regularly on PBS.
Lee Holden first discovered the healing power of Qi Gong and tai chi after experiencing injuries that nearly sidelined his Varsity Soccer career at the University of California, Berkeley. Impressed at how these ancient practices healed his body and allowed him to return to playing, he made their study a priority.
Lee is a doctor of Chinese medicine, a licensed acupuncturist, and an international instructor in qi gong, meditation, t’ai chi, and stress management. Currently, Lee is the co-founder of the Santa Cruz Integrative Medicine and Chi Center.
Charlie & Linda Bloom | Relationships: From Conflict to Connection
We are drawn to others not because of our similarities, but because of our differences. They provide the means for growth and development. Differences are inevitable in relationships; conflict is optional.
Differences become conflict when there is a power struggle to convert the other person to our way of seeing or doing things. While it is natural to want to have things go in accordance with our preferences and desires, getting caught in the grip of these impulses can lead to the destruction of a relationship.
The most important factor in the development of healthy and fulfilling relationships is the ability to manage differences skillfully. Because most of us have seen few examples of effective conflict management, it’s likely that we are inexperienced in this arena.
Dr. Sherrie Campbell | It’s Over: How to Effectively Deal with Heartbreak
Breaking up is one of the hardest things in the world. You spent so much time, love and effort on someone and to have them be gone is as bad as withdrawing from a drug. Your world gets turned upside down. It’s hard to deal with the basic needs of life let along get out of bed.
Many of us will do anything to avoid this type of pain and we make fatal mistakes before and after break ups which keeps the hurt alive and festering for months or even years damaging our self-esteem and self-respect.
If you find your relationship breaking up:
• Will you be remain calm and emotionally in control during and after a break up?
• Will you be able to move on?
• Will you be able to be happy without them?
My guest today says you can if you love yourself enough to move on and set your ex free because in doing this you set yourself free.

She earned her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2003, where she specialized in psychotherapy with adults and teenagers.

Sarah Nathali | Buddhism For Couples
If you are in a long term relationship or you’re just starting out in one or you’re somewhere in between you might be interested in a new kind of relationship wisdom, well I guess it’s not new, after all Buddhism is 5000 years old.
Surely a happy marriage for a normally adjusted couple is a simple matter of give-and-take—some patience, tolerance, and just trying to be cheerful as often as possible. There is no shortage of books providing relationship advice that can help us with these matters. But Buddhist teachings address more than just surface knowledge, and guide us to delve deeper into our psyches. I came across Sarah Napthali’s book Buddhism For Couples and was intrigued.
With an emphasis on self-compassion, Sarah’s book explains how to apply Buddhist teachings to your relationships to patch things up, hold things together, and, even on good days, scale the heights of relationship happiness. Written for both men and women, this book tackles the loaded subjects of housework, anger, sex, conflict, and infidelity, and introduces Buddhist strategies that can enrich a relationship.
Definitely a fresh approach to living as a couple and certainly an author I wanted on the show.
Vanessa Van Edwards | Stop Being Boring: Become The Most Memorable Person In The Room
Have you ever walked into a party afraid what people were thinking of you? Had someone forget they had met you before? Or stumbled your way through an awkward date? If so, this interview is for you…
Understanding people is the most important life skill a person can have. Yet, we are not taught people skills in school. Nor do our parents sit us down and teach us how to interact effectively.
But here’s the problem:
You can’t succeed in business, life or love without mastering people skills.
If you want to win the deal, get the date, negotiate the sale or influence others you have to understand the science of people.
• What makes someone charismatic?
• Why didn’t I get the date?
• Do people like me?
• How can I win the deal?
Well using the latest research on human behavior, psychology, and relationships Vanessa Van Edwards is going to answer those questions.
Dan Millman | Meaning, Connection, and Spirituality in the 21st Century
Many of us are looking for a deeper sense of meaning, connection, and harmony with the world.
And it can be a confusing experience here on earth. We seemed to be physical beings having a spiritual experience but we’re really spiritual beings having a physical experience, I think, or is it really the other way around?
In this human physical spiritual experience we need balance, presence, compassion, faith, love, integrity, surrender and action that’s a lot to take care of while also maintaining relationships, careers, finances and our health. Technology doesn’t seem to have made things easier only busier.
So how do we, can we grow spiritually in the 21st century?
My guest today is Dan Millman author of the amazing Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Dan is a former world champion athlete, director of gymnastics at Stanford University, martial arts instructor, and college professor.
After an intensive, twenty-year spiritual quest, Dan’s teaching found its form as the Peaceful Warrior’s Way, expressed fully in his books and lectures. Dan teaches worldwide and has influenced people from all walks of life, including leaders in the fields of health, psychology, education, business, politics, sports, entertainment and the arts.
Jenean Merkel Perelstein | Are You Self-Sabotaging Your Success?
Does Any of this sound familiar?
• Taking your life to the next step is your dream but you can’t seem to overcome the hurdles that always seem to line your path.
• On paper your life looks great, but the fire inside you seems to have gone out. You just don’t have the level of MOJO you used to.
• The words “busy” and “overwhelm” pepper your daily speech and have robbed you of your ability to operate at a high level.
• You have an amazing business but feel like you’re the world’s “best kept secret”.
• You want to play a bigger game in life but you don’t know the steps to change your current level of results.
• You’ve tried self-empowerment strategies before but they just didn’t stick.
• You know you’re self-sabotaging your success but you can’t figure out how to stop.
If any of this rings true then my interview with Jenean Merkel Perelstein is for you.
