#184 Marielena Ferrer “Spirituality and Politics”

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 10 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission.

Today, we veer ever so slightly away from the book and into the realm of capitalism in spirituality, group think, cancel culture, tolerance, and the writing/re-writing of history. For background, we refer to this Vice article about Guru Jagat as well as this TIME article of Anthony Fanone’s story from the January 6th insurrection. How will this history be remembered?

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

Our show music is from Shana Falana !!!

#180 Spirituality, Politics and Gun Culture with Marielena Ferrer

Back at it for another round of deep thoughts and wild talks with Mariaelena and special guest Ulster County Sheriff Juan Figueroa.

The second Monday of the month is inspired by the book, Espiritualidad y Politica, which was published 10 years ago, of which Mariaelena was a contributor. She is also the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission. You can connect with her on Instagram here.

Today, we veer ever so slightly away from the book and into the realm of gun culture and politics. We were inspired by this article about over 180 gun deaths over the 4th of July weekend, and refer to this article about guns and play. We dive into a bit of what it means for children and boys specifically to “play” with “toy” guns. Is it a part of developing as “boys” and having power over one another? Is this a necessary part of development? What is gun culture and can we change it in America? Would love to know what you think!

Send us any and all thoughts, we love to hear them.

Today, we veer ever so slightly away from the book and into the realm of taxes and billionaires, inspired by the recent Propublica Article revealing how little they pay in proportion to their wealth. In addition to the article, our conversation is also inspired by the documentary film Saving Capitalism based on the book by Robert Reich.

Send us any and all thoughts, we love to hear them. Thank you to Anthony for sharing his thoughts from our May conversation!

#171 Marielena Ferrer-Harrington “Spirituality and Politics”

It’s the second Moonday of the month and that means, the return of Marielena Ferrer-Harrington! She was a contributor to the book Espiritualidad y Politica which was published 10 years ago, and she feels it’s time to start revisiting these subjects from today’s lens. Mariaelena is the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission. You can listen to her previous interview from September of 2020 where we speak more about her life and her work, and here’s our first conversation about Spirituality and Politics.

The book contains essays from internationally recognized authors including Ken Wilber, Ervin Laszlo, and Tariq Ramadan as well as Spanish-speaking pundits such as Jordi Pigem and Vicente Merlo, “Espiritualidad y politica” offers global and local proposals for integrating a spiritual dimension in the political sphere and, concurrently, for infusing current spiritual movements with a practical component. Society’s relationship with money, cultural integration, sustainable development, and participation in public life are among the topics discussed in depth and with an actionable focus. 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.

Today we continue and expand upon the history and meaning of politics and spirituality, how they are related, why there connection is important and also Marielena explains how the Tarot is an important tool for her in understanding this subject as seen through the lens of the archetypes of the Major Arcana. We’d love for you to join in this conversation as it’s meant to support all of us through a deeper understanding of ourselves and one another.

#167 Marielena Ferrer “Espiritualidad y Politica”

It’s the return of Marielena Ferrer-Harrington! She was a contributor to the book Espiritualidad y Politica which was published 10 years ago, and she feels it’s time to start revisiting these subjects from today’s lens. Mariaelena is the Executive Director of Humanamente — a diversity and inclusion consulting organization, Chair of the Athena Network New York — a psychosocial support network in the area of social services, health, and specifically in mental health, for immigrants experiencing psychological challenges related to the migratory process, a board member of the Family of Woodstock, a member of the Arts Mid-Hudson Advisory Board, and Kingston’s City Arts Commission. Marielena is an artist and the artist behind Radio Kingston has begun its Muchas Flores (Un Jardin, Many Flowers, One Garden) Campaign to welcome in the warm season. Check it out over People’s Place. You can listen to her previous interview from September of 2020 where we speak more about her life and her work. Today, and every second Moonday of the month, she’ll be joining me to discuss various topics related to this important book.

The book contains essays from internationally recognized authors including Ken Wilber, Ervin Laszlo, and Tariq Ramadan as well as Spanish-speaking pundits such as Jordi Pigem and Vicente Merlo, “Espiritualidad y politica” offers global and local proposals for integrating a spiritual dimension in the political sphere and, concurrently, for infusing current spiritual movements with a practical component.

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.

Spirituality and politics will set the tone for our monthly conversations as we meander through topics related to power, money, purpose, sustainability, compassion, community, participation in politics, service, ethics, the tarot and wherever else we are guided. We’d love for you to join in this conversation as it’s meant to support all of us through a deeper understanding of ourselves and one another.

#157 Edie Pijpers “We Are the Ones”

Edie Pijpers is a self-taught artist who picked up her first guitar at 20 in L.A. to learn a couple of chords so she could start expressing and writing. She learned to record and produce her own music and the year 2020 gave rise to a brand new album We Are The Ones. Edie is also a painter who started painting in her late twenties in Nashville which led her to creating and publishing several children’s books. She also plays around with animation, see her short film “Day” and music videos. Her process of painting as with music is about flow. Of not believing that mistakes exist. Any move is part of the whole and the creation. It requires a great amount of trust. And diligent work/practice! 

Today we talk about her start in music and how it has progressed over the years to her most recent album, “We Are the Ones.” We listen to several songs, talk about the meanings of them which takes us into conversations about the shadow, our selves, presence and intention. Of course we also talk about her whimsical art, being in the flow, meditating and self care.

From We Are the Ones, we listen to:

“In the Shadows,” “We Are the Ones,” “Nature Knows,” “Poets of the New World”

Today’s show was engineered by Nick Panken of Freedom Highway on Radio Kingston.

#103 “Who We Are” with Musician Shana Falana

Yay, today Shana Falana returns as a guest on the show to get us caught up on all that’s been happening in her world since she stepped away from the show last year, hint a new album, tour and upcoming shows at SXSW! If you haven’t already picked up her new album, “Darkest Light,” you can grab it here.

As we do, Shana and I go deep, discussing consciousness, the stories we tell ourselves, her work to see her own stories, how the world is perfect, cool kids, her sobriety, 12-step and giving it up to a higher power (small-g-o-d), Ram Dass and the blessings of his life, envy, self-pity, how she made her most recent album and the reasons for writing some of the songs we listened to, playing SXSW and how she’s taking care of herself through herbs from Good Fight Herb Co. and Dana’s Golden Hour Botanicals

Oh, and we laugh a lot!

We heard music from Shana Falana, http://www.shanafalana.com/ specifically “Cool Kids,” “Everyone Is Gonna Be Okay,” “Who We Are,” and “Go.”

Today’s show was engineered by Maddy Bogner of Radio Kingston, http://www.radiokingston.org.
