Baptist de Pape's own path is one purely from the heart. After graduating from law school, with a lucrative employment offer from one of the world's most prestigious law firms awaiting his acceptance, Baptist realized that despite working so very hard for his degree, it wasn't truly what he was called to do in the world.

Steve Ahnael Nobel: Personal Transitions

How can we come to better understand and integrate the dramatic transitions in our lives? Steve Ahnael Nobel Steve Nobel explores insights from his new book Personal Transitions: Beyond the Comfortable into the Real, a fusion of spirituality, myth, story, case studies, practical exercises, visualization and meditation.

At Alternatives, Steve helped organize over 1300 events in the domains of contemporary spirituality and personal development.

Major transitions can include near death experiences, accidents, prison, war, psychological breakdown, and various forms of awakening. When we follow our hearts and intuition and expand into new adventures, a major transition can result. Alternatively, through experiencing times of great uncertainty, chaos and crisis, we can usher in a major transition. Life may make little or no sense when life shifts, but we are invited to gain a new perspective and live from the heart instead od the head. Transition is part of the growing up process and contains elements of soul and biology. We are here to grow physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. And within the greater context of global awakening, personal transitions are becoming increasingly more common.

Recent Episodes

Spiritual Assurance ~ June 12, 2021

So very often, Spirituality is described as "a belief system". While different ways of interpreting Spirituality can indeed be based on "belief", what goes deeper is the assurance of a very Real foundation. How can Spiritual Assurance have a dramatic impact on our personal lives and the planet? Can a non-spiritual civilization be considered truly "advanced"? What happens when a society loses sight of what is actually important?

This program also contains a reading of a short poem by Emily Dickinson and poetic segments from William Blake.

With degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science, writer, researcher, mystic and philosopher Susan Larison Danz combines logic with spirituality in all of her endeavors, sharing a free-flowing authentic, intuitive and liberating perspective with listeners.




You Are Loved! ~ May 29, 2021

How does Spirituality truly change and uplift us? Knowing we are Loved, as we are, and knowing just how much we are supported in the ways that we are growing, is what can truly transform the world - because it begins with each and every one of us - and it frees us. The very essence of Creation is a beautiful, unfolding mosaic - and so it is with us.

This realization is freeing because it uplifts and empowers us in our authentic paths and choices. Life becomes a celebration of what each of us is and can be - and we are mutually uplifted. Unconditional Love does not coerce, disparage or lead to narrow places - it is liberating and expansive. Love is the Answer, unconditionally.

This program includes brief uplifting passages from Buddha and Black Elk, as wells a reference to Mark 12:31 - and the Golden Rule in multiple spiritual traditions.




UFOs and Spirituality ~ May 22, 2021

Why is Spirituality a vital part of reflecting on UFOs and life beyond the Earth? So very often, the exploration of this topic, and even life in the Universe/Multiverse overall, is limited to technological, mechanistic considerations. We look for "signals" from other planets as evidence of "intelligent life", yet most of the "traditional" research community in "the sciences" fails to consider the Real possibilities. The movie "Contact" is so very relevant here, and in multiple ways, as well as the movie 2001 (we will consider the movies and not the books, as most people remember the movies more vividly). Those of us who have an expanded awareness of what is possible, very much including those of us in the scientific community, have a responsibility to expand the discussion beyond technological hardware. And so we shall!




The Peace that Passeth Understanding ~ May 15, 2021

How can we find Peace in the midst of a chaotic world? Today's episode includes reflections on mysterious Peace and also words of wisdom from Teresa of Avila and a poem by Robert Frost.




Use the Force, Luke . . . ~ May 8, 2021

"Use the Force, Luke....Let go!" ~ Obi Wan Kenobi, Star Wars

What did Luke Skywalker demonstrate for all of us when we first encountered Star Wars in 1977?

Joan Cerio, regular guest on the show in the past, with degrees in Biology and Science Education, and host of the Blog Talk Radio Earth Energy Forecast podcast, spontanously joins by phone for quite a wide ranging exploration. Joan continues to do interviews on YouTube.




It's May! ~ May 1, 2021

It's May! How will we step into more expansive energy?

This program includes quotes from several authors, including L.M. Montgomery, Geoffrey Chaucer, Algernon Charles Swinburne, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson and Percy Bysshe Shelley - plus reflections about movies such as Camelot and Maytime.




Non-Linear Time: Here, There and Everywhere ~ April 24, 2021

What are the truly astonishing implications of non-linear time? How is our linear thinking impacting our perspectives on what is truly possible? How does it impact our understanding of life on Earth, life beyond the Earth and even life on the "other side", beyond the veil?




1 Corinthians 13: Love is the Answer ~ April 17, 2021

It's time to revisit 1st Corinthians 13, the Love Chapter. Why? Because Love is the Answer. What 1 Corinthians 13 has to say tells us everything we need to know about what we need to be focusing on right now in the world. It doesn't matter what your spiritual background may be - 1 Corinthians 13 has something important to say to you. Love never fails.




Honesty and Fear ~ April 10, 2021

How is being fearful related to honesty? How can fear not only impact what people share with us, but how we accept the information, and how we share things ourselves? How can we be more discerning by becoming more aware of our own relationship with fear?

What is the distinction between discretion and dishonest omission? We can still be discreet and authentic, in appropriate circumstances. How can we honor this in others and in ourselves?

How can we come to understand that all paths to authenticity are essentially a lifelong journey? We can realize we are imperfect, even while increasing our conscious intent to be authentic and empathic.

Greater awareness can help us, in every way, as well as respect for ourselves and one another. This also leads to more courage, which can help us immensely.

When we are intimidated or disabled by fear, we are unable to see things with clarity. This can often lead to harmful or hasty choices, for ourselves and our societies.

What is a better path forward? How can we discover it? Host Susan Larison Danz reflects on these important topics.

This program includes brief, approachable passages from Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay Self-Reliance (1841) and Henry David Thoreau's Walden (1846).




Reflections on Hope ~ April 3, 2021

We could all use some time reflecting on Hope. Host Susan Larison Danz shares how we can find our way to Hope, no matter what is going on in our lives or our world.

A portion of the poem Dejection: An Ode is read and discussed as a part of this program. It is very approachable for all listeners and was written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1802. Samuel lived 1772-1834 and struggled with a number of things in his life - heartbreak, financial failure, doubt and serious addiction - and yet he writes of how he looks for hope and joy in this poem. There is also a brief reference in this program to the phrase "Hope springs eternal", written by Alexander Pope. When we read literature, we find it is more approachable than we realize, and we can learn so many things useful for improving our lives and world today through studying the writing of imperfect lives in imperfect times, just as our own lives and times are imperfect.
