222 Kia Abilay “The Gift of Listening” and Lisa Hantes “The Gift of Giving”

Today I celebrate the life of Kia Abilay. She was a guest on the show September 21, 2021 when she talked about her book, The Gift of Listening: Cultivating Your Connection to Spirit. The part of her story we didn’t get into in her interview was how she had been diagnosed with esophageal cancer and what she was doing to heal from it. Kia passed on November 22, 2021 and so today, on her birthday and the day of her Celebration of Life, I read from portions of her book in her honor.

Then in the second hour of the of the show, I am joined by Lisa Hantes president of the board of directors for Angel Food East, one of Kia’s favorite local charities which was chosen for remembrance donations in her honor. Lisa has been the board president for the last 8 years and is also a volunteer chef.  Locals may know her as the GM and co-proprietor of Keegan Ales, where she worked together with her husband Tommy for the past 10-12 years. She also works with Ulster Literacy association as a grant administrator and tutor trainer. Lisa lets us know how we can support the work of Angel Food East and all the cool happenings on the horizon at Keegans.

Don’t forget about Marielena’s opening this Friday at the Dorsky in New Paltz!

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

202 “Spirituality and Politics” with Marielena Ferrer

It’s the return of Marielena Ferrer and our monthly conversation inspired by Espiritualidad y Politica, which ponders ideas related to society’s relationship with money, cultural integration, sustainable development, and participation in public life. The overarching message is that it is possible and necessary to marry the art of living (spirituality) with the art of coexisting (politics) to achieve peace. We talk about the practical implications of this and other related topics. Today we discuss human nature and the spirit, energy and matter, and separateness and oneness.

Mariaelena is an artist and the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization.

Here’s the information on the Holistic Health Community.

Here’s the Full Moon Report I read from, and here’s the link to register for my Full Moon Virtual Circle with meditation and journaling.

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

#190 Kia Abilay “The Gift of Listening”

On the show today I get to speak with Kia Abilay an Akashic Records Teacher and Certified Healing Touch Practitioner, Energy & Intuitive Communicator and a One Spirit Minister. For many years she worked as a practitioner in the Wellness Center at Omega but for the past year has been working on a book sharing stories from her work and lessons about the gift of listening. The book is titled The Gift of Listening, Cultivating Your Connection with Spirit and is due to be released on October 20, 2021. You can get info about the book and general newsletter goodness by signing up for her mailing list, or follow her on Instagram for announcements.

Today Kia shares about her connection with Spirit and how it’s impacted her life as well as some stories from her life and how the process of writing her first book has continued her lifelong work of listening and healing. She also gracefully indulges my curiosities about her time spent doing astral travel and talks about how we all receive these gifts from Spirit, we just don’t always open them.

Here’s the Moon report that I read from in honor of the Pisces Full Moon. Moon blessings to y’all!

#98 “Artists and Activists” Helene Richman + Judith “Zelda” Miller

My first guest today is Helene Richman, a mom, wife, artist and creative force behind @brandhelene (Twitter, Facebook) who’s been working with a group of girl entrepreneurs, the Start Up Squad, at the Hodge Center in Kingston, NY. She’s been helping them learn about and build a business. I got to hang out with the girls a few weeks ago and talk about how to create their own radio show. After some prep and a little training, they all got to interview one another. I play some snippets of their interviews during today’s show as well as talk about what the girls have done in the program. After meeting with several entrepreneurs in the area the girls settled in on t-shirts for their business which they will debut at @madeinkingstonny this Thursday! Helene also shares about her corporate business experience and how she’s transferring that in to more service oriented roles. This year she organized the Hudson Valley Design Collective, (Facebook) focusing on upcycling used tectiles in an effort to help shift the waste in the clothing business. The Collective will also be at Made in Kingston along with Helene’s other endeavor with BlocArt, selling upcycled wood made by living wage workers in South Africa. No wonder this lady has another cold!

Next up is Zelda aka Judith Z. Miller @artistsoulspeaks an artist, actor, aspiring shaman and healer who’s talking about her work-in-progress solo show, Que Será, Será: A Life’s Journey of Sexual Orientation & Gender Expression. This multi-media show chronicles the joys and challenges of navigating non-binary Queerness from childhood in the 1950’s to adulthood. Zelda will be performing a work-in-progress production of the show on December 7 @ 8:30 pm & December 8 @ 3 pm at the @lgbtqcenter here in Kingston. Zelda shares about how she got into theater, some of the more powerful experiences she’s had like performing pieces in a women’s prison in Virginia, or a short piece that helped her heal her younger self who was forced to wear dresses against her wishes. Zelda is a gifted, open-hearted, magical and mystical being who has stories to share that are guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and most definitely think! If you can’t get to her live performance, Radio Kingston will be live streaming the Sunday show from their Facebook page which you can view any time ->->-> Check it out!!!
