Enlightened Life – Sacred Sweat Lodge Tradition Under Attack in Arizona
On 9/11/2012, Yavapai County Arizona ordered members of the All Nations Native Church to stop all gatherings for the Inipi, the sacred sweat lodge tradition they have practiced there for many years. Officials are demanding that they get a permit to hold the religious ceremony in which the sweat lodge is built and used. In the aftermath of the James Arthur Ray 'death lodge' in 2009, is the county going too far by demanding that religious people who offer safe and legitimate sweat lodges and have been doing so for years must have government approval first? Join us for a lively and enlightening conversation with spiritual leader Adam Yellow Bird DeArmon who has been practicing the Inipi tradition for many years and whose sweat lodge was recently shut down by Yavapai County officials. Adam has traveled extensively throughout the world working, learning and living with many different indigenous peoples. He has dedicated his time and energy to a personal vision of unity and a return to the natural world. He is a born healer and visionary. Adam also serves as the Cultural Liaison for the Foundation for Global Humanity, working directly with Elder Brothers Kogi Ajaco and Wiwa from Colombia. He is involved with the The Indigenous Native Americans (http://indigenousnativeamericans.com/)website, the outreach vehicle for the International Center of Spiritual and Ancestral Wisdom (ICSAW). ICSAW is dedicated to preserving the ancient wisdom and traditions of indigenous cultures throughout the world. In response to the actions of Yavapai County, Adam has set up a Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Indigenous-Native-Americans-and-Save-The-Inipi-Ceremony/255918191149986)page to support his fight for the right of religious freedom on behalf of the sacred Inipi sweat lodge tradition where you can show your support and get the latest updates.

Enlightened Life – The Mystical Traditions of the West Revealed for a New Age
We are in the midst of a great revelation of the wisdom of the ages of the Western world. Referred to as the 'Yoga of the West', these mysteries are really principles and practices that lead to self-mastery and spiritual awakening. Our ancient western mystery schools went underground in the dark ages and were forgotten by most as the rational mind became the standard in an evolving society. But in the late 1800's a new form of the old mystery schools arose, bringing the spiritual wealth of western culture back into consciousness and practice. Now these mystical philosophies and techniques are coming out from the lodges and secret societies and taking their place once again as viable and venerable approaches to realizing the Divine Self within. Join us for an enlightening discussion of the roots of this ancient wisdom path, the important contributions of 'magical' women in the revelation of its arts and the future of this empowering and vital path to life mastery. My guest is Mary Greer (http://marygreer.wordpress.com/), a scholar, writer, teacher and author of nine books on Tarot and a biography of four female magicians who used these secrets to change their world - Women of the Golden Dawn: Rebels and Priestesses (http://www.amazon.com/Women-Golden-Dawn-Priestesses-Horniman/dp/0892816074/).

Enlightened Life – Our Right to Know What’s In the Food We Eat
We all have a right to know what's in the food we eat and feed our children. This includes whether or not the food is genetically engineered. We need to be able to make informed choices and have the freedom to choose which foods we consume. If we don't eat organic food, we may be eating genetically modified organisms (GMO's) without knowing it. GMO's include plants and animals whose DNA has been altered by genes from other animals, viruses, bacteria, herbicides and pesticides. Many foods contain these altered genes but they are not labeled. The majority of countries in the world require labels on GMO foods, but in the U.S. no labels are required. Consumers have tried for years to get their representatives to pass laws requiring labeling without success. Now the people of California have passed a historic citizens' initiative that may finally give us the freedom to know what is in the foods we eat. Join me as I talk with Stacy Malkan, Media Director for the California Right to Know Campaign. Discover what may be lurking in your food, the health consequences for you and your family, why we don't have labeling laws for GMO's and how the California Right to Know initiative is on track to restore food freedom for all Americans.
