Planning a Journey Around the World with Elynn Kann and David Sanchez – 8-8-15

June 29, 2015

A trip around the world sounds like an exciting and blissful adventure….and it is!  But making sure that your travels go smoothly and that you keep costs under control takes some skillful navigation.  This week’s guests just completed a nearly year-long worldwide journey, paying for lodging only 20% of the time, and they are here to share their insights on how to make this adventure a reality.

Elynn Kann and David Sanchez departed for their world travels after their May 2014 college graduation, and returned to the U.S. in April 2015. During their travels, they were in 20 countries and did all of this on a very modest budget, paying for their lodging only 20% of the time.

Elynn Kann graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014 with a BS in Sociology and a Certificate in Global Health. Early on, Elynn felt called to help underserved populations, doing mission work for the Appalachia Service Project. While in college, she spent time volunteering at an orphanage in Thailand, and spent a semester studying healthcare for the poor in India, Argentina and South Africa. Elynn also traveled with a college tour to Uganda looking at health conditions in Africa.

She was fortunate to spend a week in New York City at the United Nations 2014 UN Practicum in Advocacy, attending the Commission on the Status of Women. She was one of just 20 students from around the country invited to attend.

Elynn was previously employed at the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and currently works for Room to Read, an international education organization, and lives in San Francisco, California.

Elynn’s travel blog is available at https://formylongwalkisnotended.wordpress.com/.

David Sanchez graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2014 with a degree in Political Science. At Vanderbilt, David was an Ingram Scholar and was named a 2014 Michael B. Keegan Traveling Fellow. The goal of the fellowship is to develop future leaders through world travel and experiential learning. Graduating seniors awarded the fellowship have the opportunity to pursue an idea or an issue they are passionate about in the context of daily life in communities around the world. David developed an interest in conflict resolution while studying in Copenhagen, Denmark, and trips to Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as Germany. The focus of his fellowship year was to travel to 18 communities on six continents for a project, “The Peace-Conflict Continuum: Investigating the Origins of Conflict and Identifying Best Practices for Promoting Harmony.” His goal was to examine why some countries embrace multiculturalism while others see it as a source of conflict. He seeks to understand what factors are influential in inciting conflict, where the tipping point is and what mechanisms could be implemented to defuse ethnic and religious tensions. He is especially interested in the role of governments in adopting preventive measures to reduce clashes and foster harmony between groups.

David currently works at Google in Mountain View, California.  David’s blog is available at http://www.davidssanchez.com/traveling-blog/.

Many people say that they would love to travel the world some day. It seems like a fantasy, but this week we’ll begin a discussion about Life Journeys with two people who did what others only dream about….they traveled the world for the better part of a year. They’ll share their favorite locations, biggest surprises, and how you too can do it on a budget when they join us this week in the studio.

The Spiritual Science Connection with Robert Karp – 7-18-15

June 7, 2015

As we consider the way that we connect with the Divine, we have been speaking about different philosophies that have been based in ancient cultures, psychology, and mathematics. This week, we’ll take a look at a specific perspective of thought that is often referred to as Spiritual Science and was pioneered by philosopher Rudolf Steiner. Early on, his focus was to try to find the synthesis between science and spirituality. He believed that “…..the experience of thinking, rightly understood, is in fact an expression of Spirit.” As his thinking evolved, he went on to establish the philosophies behind fields of study you might be familiar with such as Waldorf education and biodynamic agriculture. A consistent thread in his philosophies is the goal of demonstrating that there are essentially no limits to human knowledge.

Steiner believed that with proper training, anyone could develop the experience of the spiritual world, and therefore be more free to be motivated solely by love. He felt that understanding reincarnation and karma were essential to understanding psychology. This week we’ll discuss this Spiritual Science perspective and how it can help us understand our connection to Divine.

IMG_1902Robert Karp is a writer, thinker and social entrepreneur informed by the social, economic and spiritual insights of Rudolf Steiner. Robert has been a student of modern spiritual science for over 30 years and lectures and writes regularly on this topic. Robert is the former Executive Director of Practical Farmers of Iowa, one of the country’s premier sustainable agriculture organizations and is a former board president of the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, a leading center for biodynamic and organic research and education in East Troy, Wisconsin.

Currently, Robert works as the co-director of the Biodynamic Association, the national association that promotes Rudolf Steiner’s agricultural ideas and methods. Robert’s writings include an analysis of the sustainable food and farming movement in the light of Rudolf Steiner’s economic insights titled Toward an Associative Economy in the Sustainable Food and Farming Movement, published in serial form in Biodynamics (2007-08) and an essay titled Community and Agriculture: An Iowa Pilgrimage which was published by Free River Press in Eating in Place: Telling the Story of Local Foods.Robert has a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Iowa State University.

The Value of Dreams with Kristina Bloom – 7-11-15

June 5, 2015

Our sleeping hours are often filled with dreams that can range from complete fantasy to being very close to reality.  Sometimes we remember the details and have a clear understanding of their meaning, and sometimes they don’t seem to make any sense at all.  But we can’t help but be curious about what the significance of our dreams are and whether there are messages there that deserve our attention.  This week we explore how our dreams connect us to ourselves and the Divine energy in our lives with a guest who has many years of experience in navigating the meaning and value of dreams.
