Ep. 86 - The Divine Feminine - A Beacon Series Interview Ft. Clark Strand & Perdita Finn, co-authors of The Way of the Rose: The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary

==========

Almost from the very moment of my initial awakening in the summer of 1995, I’ve had a hunger to learn, and reading was a critical source of nutrients for my ravenous mind. I’ve read many wonderful books since that day, and while my mind may not be as hungry, it still makes a healthy meal of many wonderful written works.

In the full scope of all the works I’ve read, there are those very special books that are more like profound life-events. I’m sure you understand my meaning. These are the books that place you in timeless spaces, moving beyond the realm of simple transference of information, or pleasurable stimulation. These are the works that become phenomena, and when you turn the last page your mind takes special note of the time and space in which you absorbed its message. Recently, I completed one such multifaceted work, so layered and rich that I reached out to the authors to see if they would visit with me on "Find the Good News." 

Enter my conversation Clark Strand & Perdita Finn, co-authors of the book “The Way of the Rose: The Radical Path of the Divine Feminine Hidden in the Rosary.” On the surface, this book appears to be about the Rosary—and it is about that—but I very quickly learned that it while it is about this cherished, predominantly Catholic form of prayer, this inspired work was about so much more.

”The Way of the Rose,” through the Rosary, reaches down through the historic ages of humankind, and further still into prehistory, sinking to the very formation of the earth, on deeper to the creation of the universe. In this dynamic and invigorating conversation, Clark & Perdita graciously share their intimate discoveries as they followed the promptings and messages of the Lady—or the Girl—around the world and through the ages to produce “The Way of the Rose,” a work which reveals cross-cultural connections of the Divine Feminine using poetic and prophetic beats, unlike any work I’ve encountered before. 

What intrigued me most of all about “The Way of the Rose,” and the story of an encounter that Clark shares, is the sideways nature in which their relationship began. As someone that has been using a Rosary as a part of my own prayer life, long before I made my cycle within the organized Catholic Church, it was refreshing to visit with people that have experienced such powerful promptings. An ongoing journey like that of Clark Strand & Perdita Finn longs to be shared, or in this instance, cries out across the ages to be born.

I enjoyed this conversation with Clark Strand and Perdita Finn. They were so genuine, kind, and so open to sharing the sweet aroma of this unfolding work called “The Way of the Rose.”

Before you listen to this episode, I encourage you to look for the string that’s running through your life or the common links in the chain of your existence that binds one thing to the next.  Stop for a moment on the beads that have formed around every sacred moment you’ve experienced. Gently go through them one-by-one. Maybe, if you stay in this garland long enough, you’ll see the presence of a loving mother somewhere along your way.

Now, tune your attention to this Good News Beacon, and press play on a little good news.

Ep. 85 - The Growing Voice - Ft. Dominique Darbonne of The Flamethrowers

==========

Since starting this Good News podcast signal, it’s been my great pleasure to meet people from my region that I may not have met otherwise. The truth is that this transmission has allowed me to do much more than simply meet them; I’ve gotten to know them in some very deep and personal ways. More often than not, when I finish one of these visits, I leave the conversation feeling like I’ve gained a new friend. Other times, it goes beyond friendship and expands into the category of an alliance. In talking with Dominique Darbonne, I gained a friend and an ally.

My local listeners may know Dominique as the singer for the on-fire band “The Flamethrowers,” but like each of us, her story goes so much deeper than her vocal vibrations.

I feel that I had this conversation with Dominique at a very peculiar time in her life. It was clear from our visit that there is a rising passion inside of her to use her voice beyond the local stage—even away from song—to bring attention to local injustices that affect her community, and champion for those the underdogs that are working tirelessly to make this region more civil and healthy.

She reminds me, yet again, that it is important to use right speech and right action when you’re on your path to waking up. Beyond that, know who your allies are and bring them together to speak as one voice as often as you can. That, dear friends, is a community worth speaking out for.

So, perk up, maybe steep some tea, and enjoy some green & open space in your hometown. Think about how the world is changing, how it’s changing you, and how you can put your reflections and your voice to work for those around you, then press play on a little good news.

Ep. 84 - The Golden Vine - Beacon Series Ft. Corin Grillo - Find the Good News with Brother Oran

Ep. 84 - The Golden Vine - A Beacon Series Interview Ft. Corin Grillo author of The Angel Experiment: A 21-Day Magical Adventure to Heal Your Life
==========

When you hear the word “Angel,” what comes to mind? If you’re like most of the people I’ve encountered, or if you’re like I was 25 years ago, then you probably draw up a pretty specific image. Maybe you think of chubby little cherubs with plump and rosy cheeks, sporting harps, and heart-shaped arrows. Perhaps you call to mind images of majestic humanoid beings with grand wings, glimmering armor, armed with glimmering shields and flaming swords.

For me, the earliest image I can call to mind is from an antique painting that still hangs on the wall in the bedroom of my long-deceased Great Grandfather. Two children, a boy, and a girl are crossing a dilapidated bridge under the veil of night. Many of the planks are missing. Over them both is the image of a beautiful woman, draped in fine fabrics, her arms spread wide, her downy wings tucked firmly behind her as she projects and guides the children to safety. I’m sure you know the image I’m talking about; it’s a classic.

Over two decades ago, all my preconceived notions about Angels came crumbling down, and I was given cause to ponder again these seemingly mythical Celestials. I entered into a mystery that I’ve been trying to wrap my arms around for a long time, and recently I was blessed with further clarity. Enter my conversation Corin Grillo, author of the book “The Angel Experiment: A 21-Day Magical Adventure to Heal Your Life” published by New World Library, and founder of “The Angel Alchemy Academy."

In this episode, Corin shares many of the details surrounding a beautiful miracle that changed her life and explains how the unique intercession of Angels on that day started an ongoing relationship with these Celestial beings.

As a trained psychotherapist, Corin was already working to enhance the well-being of others, but by channeling the assistance her Angelic advocates she has enhanced her gifts as a healer and teacher. A big part of her role as a teacher can be experienced by the Angel curious in her book, “The Angel Experiment,” where she offers a 21-day series of invocations, prayers, and exercises organized in a way that puts Angelic friendships to work multidimensionally for anyone that’s ready to peel back another layer to their life.

I enjoyed this conversation with Corin Grillo, and I’m thankful for the special answers she shared with me, a message with clarification offered by the Angels surrounding her during our conversation.

Now, it’s time to suspend any hint of disbelief you may have, spread the metaphorical wings of your mind, tune your attention to this Good News Beacon, and press play on a little good news.

Ep. 83 - The Open Mic Ft. Chase Bonin - Find the Good News with Brother Oran

EP. 83 - The Open Mic Ft. Chase Bonin of the Lake Charles Comedy Scene

==========

I talk a lot about love and compassion on this show. I truly believe they are medicine, and two of the greatest gives that can be given and received, but there’s another very human gift that brings great healing, and I know I don’t talk about it enough, and that gift is laughter.

When I look back on my life, laughter has often been a huge component to my well being, and a good belly laugh has always been a sign that reconciliation may have occurred, and deep grief is settling, or a cosmic awareness of the silliness and beauty of life has hit me square in my forehead. The truth is, I want to get the great joke and laugh through my tears, and these beings that have the ability to pull the chuckles out of me when I need it most are acting as healers.

I had to laugh at myself yet again when Chase Bonin, local comedian and organizer of the Lake Charles Comedy scene, came in for a visit on Find the Good News.

I’m guilty of being one of those people, you know, the ones that say, “I wish we this-or-that here in our area." Well, the joke was on me. I truly didn’t know we had an active and growing stand-up comedy scene in Southwest Louisiana, and visiting with Chase reminded me, yet again, that I don’t always know what I think I know.

Chase loves comedy and is a student of stand-up, and he is using that love and high-interest to bring local and regional talent to our area. I enjoyed hearing about his road to stand-up. He’s honest, funny, and somewhere between those things I found a really authentic bit of wisdom as well, and that’s really good news.

I invite you to listen to my conversation with Chase Bonin, a really funny guy with an open mic if you think you might be funny too.

The world may still be trying to figure out how to kickstart all the old systems, but for the time being, just lay those things down.

Chase Bonin has some chuckles to share. So, take a drive, a walk, put in some earbuds, then dust off your smile. Prepare to laugh and have a genuinely good time, then press play on a little good news.
