Ep. 55 - Heart-centric Leadership with TEDx Charlotte's Mike Watson
Today we're interviewing Mike Watson, Founder of Heart-centric Leadership, about what else - heart-centric leadership! What is heart-centric leadership? Here's what Mike has to say about it: "There is a leadership and engagement crisis in organizations that I believe (and I am doing research on for my doctorate) is associated with a lack of willingness by leaders to embrace spiritual intelligence, along with IQ and emotional intelligence. This crisis extends beyond the organization and into our home lives wherein we are all leaders of our own lives, and is evident with the number of people that say they don't know what their purpose in life is, and how to find it. When we listen to our heart, and let it inform our mind prior to decision-making then we are also allowing space for spiritual intelligence to guide us on our own purposeful journey." Mike spent 15 years in organizational leadership, where his insights and foundation were shaped for Heart-centric Leadership www.mikewatson.today. He has done multiple keynotes and workshops for Universities and organizations. He's also appeared on HuffPost Live 3x as guest panelist to discuss leadership and social activism, and has been the beloved Emcee for TEDx Charlotte. He is currently completing his doctorate in organizational leadership, with a dissertation on Spiritual Intelligence in Leadership, with an online course series launching this summer. He will be hiking Mount Kilimanjaro in July to raise awareness and money for the prevention of foot-born diseases, and to honor the work of Samaritan's Feet 15 year anniversary. Join us as we pick the genius brain and warm heart of Mr. Mike Watson.

Do you know about the Urantia book? This is what urantia.org has to say about it: "The Urantia Book, first published by Urantia Foundation in 1955, presents us with the origin, history, and destiny of humanity. It answers questions about God, life in the inhabited universe, the history and future of this world, and it includes an uplifting narrative of the life and teachings of Jesus.The Urantia Book portrays our relationship with God the Father. All human beings are the sons and daughters of a loving God and therefore brothers and sisters in the family of God.

Building on the world's religious heritage, The Urantia Book describes an endless destiny for humankind, teaching that living faith is the key to personal spiritual progress and eternal survival.

Ep. 51 - A Spiritual Mediator Reports from The Light House
Co-hosts, Kendall Heath and Debbie Chisholm, interview Andy Silver today from our podcasting table that he nicknamed "The Corpus Callosum" for its job of giving everyone a place to communicated between both hemispheres of the brain. (We loved it!) A constant comedian, Andy Silver, "Spiritual Mediator in the Field", has been working in the healing/spiritual community much longer than social media and podcasts have been around, and he's got a historical archive inside of him to proove it! Once a reluctant, young member of The Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, better known as "Jonestown", and one of 20 who did not travel on the Guyana trip that resulted in the deaths of more than 900 people in the Jonestown Massacre, Andy moved on to work in the fields of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Conflict Resolution & Divorce Meditation, Hypnosis, and ultimately Intuitive Medium work. On today's show he talks about his spiritual and vocational journey that spans several decades, including extensive training in The Silva Method, mediation work for Fema after Hurricane Katrina, over 3700 psychic medium readings, and his passion for stand-up comedy. Andy also shares some of the tools he's gathered along the way for spiritual self-care and balance, and talks a little about "the old days" and some of the early key voices in the Charlotte spiritual community.

Ep. 50 - The Essential World of Oils with Amy Sutton of My Tribe Essential Oils
Today we interview Davidson, North Carolina's Amy Sutton of Bodywork by Amy Sutton and MY TRIBE Essential Oils about her work as a healer and the plant medicine that is available through pure essential oils. Amy has been connecting with bodies for a long time, listening to what the body needs, beneath the words of her clients. She knows the body does not lie, and in fact, informs us about exactly what is needed! The pharmacy, she says, is provided by nature. Learning how to use that pharmacy is something she passionately teaches about and shares through oil education. Amy says, "I think about the connection that we have to everything, how we impact each other and the world at large. I think about our connection to this planet and how we've grown away from all things natural, and how beautiful mother earth is, as it literally we supports us in every manner....I worry about us as a species and how we've evolved, but devolved, at the same time. We know that we have 5 senses, but we actually have 6! ALL of us have the ability to live intuitively, into that 6th sense, but it has largely been lost or outmoded. I believe that the world needs us more than ever. WE need US - the dreamers, the healers, the empaths. We need to call everyone back, back into their bodies, their relationships with self and others, and back to this world that we inhabit. I belong to you. We are connected, inextricably connected to the ebb and flow of life." Amy's body wisdom and connection to nature's medicinal gifts makes for a wonderful Spiritual Charlotte podcast!www.spiritualcharlotte.com

(or anytime after) as Co-Host, Debbie Chisholm, turns the table on Host, Kendall Heath, in an interview about her spiritual journey and work as an Interfaith Minister, Medium, and Co-Founder of Light House Spiritual Center. Kendall shares what matters to her most (i.e. the primary mission) of her spiritual work, ...and her "awakening journey" thus far, which started in early childhood with stressful family experiences. Today she acts as a bridge and translator of spiritual language across many traditions, making room for a God that she believes is way too large for any one dogma or doctrine. She's thinks (for the most part) that every tradition is onto something - a piece of the gorgeous whole! Kendall also sees healing and spirituality as an intertwined path - one as integral to the other. Her mission includes facilitating healing from the illusions we have of our disconnection and separateness, a perception she says leaves people lost, addicted, and suffering with various forms of soul sickness. She explains how she serves the combined mission of healing and personal & spiritual discovery at Light House Spiritual Center in Mooresville, North Carolina. She also shares some of her early Medium experiences, what keeps her up at night, what makes her "giddy", how she responds to stress, what books are currently on the nightstand, and more....

Her mission includes facilitating healing from the illusions we have of our disconnection and separateness, a perception she says leaves people lost, addicted, and suffering with various forms of soul sickness.

In Episode 44 we did a general overview of this massive body of papers, introducing our listeners to this masterpiece work.

Ep. 46 - Finally, an Interview with Light House Co-Founder, Debbie Chisholm!
It's time to shine a light on Spiritual Charlotte Co-Host and Light House Spiritual Center Co-Founder, Master Energy Work Practitioner, Debbie Chisholm. Debbie is known for her calm, kind presence and her ability to "hold space" for people in a gentle way. And ALSO, in the back office, she has a lot to say and do and is explosive (in a minature explosion sort of way) with a passion for pioneering meaningful work in our region and beyond! Faithful to the meditation and metaphysical path, Debbie's Aquarian energy is one of quiet innovation, inquiry, and a faithful devotion to the "Divine downloads" that come through her meditation practice. She lived many years in a "normal life", primarily focused on going to work in accounting, getting the bills paid, and being a Mom and Caregiver. But in the second chapter of her life, she has aligned with her soul's purpose, stepping out of the spiritual closet and into the calling of being a facilitator who helps others remember who they really are, on the soul level, and working with energy to elevate individuals to the task of aligning with that Truth again. Using intuitive skills, Shamanic tools, Priestess wisdom, Light Language, and Christ Consciousness, Debbie acts as a beacon of light for those wandering through the darkness. Today she'll talk about her dedication to the work, her immersion into Light Language channeling and study, and some of her favorite things, gut reactions, and very human qualities.

Ep. 45: Hollis Crittendon on Addiction, Spirituality, and Choices for Recovery
Today we interview Hollis Crittendon, Executive Director of Choices for Recovery in Charlotte, NC.

Twenty-four times in treatment, 30 + times jailed, one month in a coma, at least 5 overdoses, and a couple near death experiences...and living today to teach from it and facilitate healing for others. Unconditional love from "the other side" (and this side, no doubt!) changed the trajectory of his life, and can change yours, too. Hollis talks about how addiction and spirituality are two sides of the same coin. Both are a longing for connection. And remembering who we truly are is central to the path of healing. He also shares various methods for treatment that extend beyond the traditional Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Learn more about Choices for Recovery here: www.choicesforrecovery.com.

Episode 43 - The Divine Appointment of the Doula with Rebecca Duerr
Today on the Spiritual Charlotte podcast, we are joined by Lake Norman-based Pregnancy & Labor Doula and Integrative Nutritionist, Rebecca Duerr, of Mindful Family Wellness in Mooresville, North Carolina. A mother of four girls herself, whom she birthed naturally, Rebecca seems born to be a Doula! Today we talk about the support and wisdom that Doulas bring to the pregnancy, labor, post-labor, and even fertility experiences of couples and/or mothers. We look at the true impact that optimal nutrition makes on getting pregnant, hormone health, having a healthy pregnancy, and a lower stress labor. *Did you know that men are most often (though not always) the reason for fertility issues? Rebecca explains why working with the male partner is so important! The gap that a Doula fills is one of focused mind/body/spirit support for the mother (and father), and the ability to act as an educated liaison to medical teams, midwifes, and others so that a woman can do her most important task of bringing new life into the world from a place of empowerment! We share some of our own birth stories and talk about the ancient practices of birthing that are restoring themselves in our culture today. With no judgement on the type of birth experiences that families choose, we explore the Divine appointment of the Doula.

Episode 42 - The Internal Lives & Healing of Men with Dr. Damon Silas
In October we're focusing on the mental & spiritual health of men, beginning with this incredible interview with Charlotte/Lake Norman-based Psychologist/Hypnotist/Author, Damon Silas, of Damon Silas Psychological and Consultation Services. Damon shares his own journey of overcoming horrific family loss, the murder of his beloved sister, as described in his memoir, From Mourning to Knight. How does a man move through a "Dark Night of the Soul" like this, and into living from a compassionate heart, in service to his authentic self and the world? We cover the topics of stigmas males have around mental health help, the epidemic of men separating the mind/body/spirit connection and numbing their pain, and the mistake of approaching life issues as simple behavorial problems. Damon draws from his years helping veterans through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma, as we talk more about what PTSD and trauma actually are, and how they can be detected and treated. We also look at how men's relationships with family, particularly their fathers, impact them (you) as adults. Plus, where does society's screwed up messaging stack up against men? What role do their peers play? And what is happening in the brain chemistry of a man who has been struggling for a long time? For all the men who fall through the cracks in this vital and vulnerable conversation about mental/physical/spiritual health - we will not let you fall alone.

Episode 38 - Progressive Pastor, Joshua Adam Scott, is back for Bible School!
Guess whose back on The Spiritual Charlotte Podcast?! Our favorite self-professed "Bible Nerd", Joshua Adam Scott! Josh's theology is refreshing, bold, and unafraid to grow up and away from "the way things have always been done(or taught)". And yet, he loves and knows the Bible through and through! So, if you're going to talk about The Holy Bible and Jesus, this is the Pastor you want to talk about it with! Today we're talking about JESUS, and we'll be ...asking the hard questions: If we struggle with Christianity, do we necessarily have to struggle with Jesus? Is it possible we made him up? Who was/is he and who is he NOT? How can we make peace with Jesus when we don't know how we feel (or have conflicting or adverse feelings) about the religion, the churches, and/or the scripture surrounding him? What teachings of Jesus' are available to us today (regardless of our religious affiliation or UNaffiliation) to help us respond to issues like racial injustice, gender & LBGT rights, government corruption & inhumane politics, poverty, and world suffering? How can the spiritual (non-religious) person get to know Jesus in new ways, and why should they? A conversation with Josh is always too short! Join us as we pick the Bible brain of Joshua Adam Scott! www.joshuaadamscott.com www.spiritualcharlotte.com
