The broadcast of the Mind Body Spirit Living radio show was pre-empted this week with the broadcast of the University of Wisconsin Football game vs. the University of Massachusetts.
To make sure you get your weekly “Mind Body Spirit Living” fix, we’re making available this exclusive discussion about “Understanding Spiritual Awakening” with Host Chris Kann and spiritual teacher and holistic life coach Markus Kasunich.
There is much discussion and speculation about this process of “Awakening” , and Markus will discuss his perspective. He will discuss what can lead to having this experience, and the blessings and challenges of what can happen during the process and after it occurs.
Markus is originally from Canada, but is now based in California. He serves in many roles for his clients: holistic life coach, alternative medicine healer, and counselor. He has traveled worldwide and has been trained in a wealth of different healing modalities, all augmenting his own natural gifts and intuitive abilities. Markus also is a frequent speaker on issues related to personal growth.
Markus also is a practicing artist who had his most recent gallery showing in Racine, WI in November, 2012. Chris and Markus have worked together for over three years and have been co-presenters on the topic of Creativity at multiple conferences and via webinar.

Our “Mind Month” continued with more exploration of the mind through music….and we wereLIVE in the studio!
This week we welcomed Ragani, an award-winning musical artist, who shared with us her insights on how she sees the role of Mind in the Mind Body Spirit balance. As a practicing natural medicine healer, with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology, and a life long study of Eastern traditions, she brings all aspects of her background to her life, music, and perspective.
An award-winning artist and producer with over 30 years of live Kirtan with Ragani events, Ragani also writes music for film & tv (dozens of music placements on The Oprah Winfrey Show, among others), and she currently leads Milwaukee’s Kirtan with Ragani, one of the largest independent, ongoing kirtan scenes in the US.
She holds a doctorate of Clinical Psychology as well as a degree in Acupuncture Therapy, and she integrates mind-body practices into her acupuncture therapies.
At age eight, Ragani met the legendary yoga master, Swami Rama (former Shankaracharya of India and founder of the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science & Philosophy), and he initiated and personally trained in the Himalayan Tradition of yoga sciences, meditation, and eastern music.
Named in OnMilwaukee.com’s “100 Milwaukeeans You Need to Know”, Ragani has been featured artist FOX 6, in numerous international publications (Recording Magazine, Ode, Kirtan: Chanting as a Spiritual Path, Yoga of Kirtan, American Veda, On Tour With Shure, etc.), and she is the yoga model for the award-winning book, Yoga: Mastering the Basics (and its two accompanying videos).
