Easter and Passover

I originally thought I should begin this column by apologizing to those who might be offended at what I'm about to say. And then I realized that I went back to school at age 56 to get a degree in Religious Studies so that I would no longer feel the need to apologize for my perspective on religion.

I frequently speak publicly about what I call "disempowering theologies," and you can see an example HERE. It's a seven minute video, and I hope you'll watch it, and then take a moment to reflect on how you developed your image of God.

If you celebrate Passover and/or Easter in the traditional way, I strongly urge you to read some scholarly books about the history of Judaism and Christianity. Many of you are old enough to remember the 1970s bumper sticker that said "Question Authority." Why are so many people afraid to question religious authority?

In honor of Easter and Passover, and the deeply mystical practices and traditions that are the true source of these celebrations, I invite you to investigate what scholars call a "historical-critical" view of Western religion. 

Here are some books I highly recommend. Read at least one of them, and decide for yourself:

Jesus Interrupted by Bart Ehrman
God is a Verb  by David Cooper
The Third Jesus by Deepak Chopra
The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels
Who Wrote the Bible by Richard Elliott Friedman

Love and Blessings...

IADC
Induced After-Death Communication:  
A Metaphysical Therapy
for Grief and Trauma
Contributed by Gary Beaver, IADC Therapist

 

Most of the people who come to me for Induced After-Death Communication therapy (IADC) have suffered a loss and are stuck in it, still experiencing crushing grief after years, sometimes even decades. Time has not healed them, so they're looking for something else. IADC therapy is the most revolutionary approach I've found for working with grief and trauma, and the results continually amaze me.  The program consists of two 90-minute sessions held on consecutive days. The first session is intended to address and clear the client's grief, and the second session is focused on facilitated communication between the client and the deceased loved one.  READ MORE...

No, it's not a joke, it's an online teleclass with psychic medium John Holland, physician Karen Wyatt MD, out-of-body explorer William Buhlman and Rev. Terri Daniel talking about life in the afterlife! 

It aired earlier this week, but if you missed it, you can listen to the archive HERE
