It has ever and always been true, David Whyte reminds us, that so much of human experience is a conversation between loss and celebration. This conversational nature of reality — indeed, this drama of vitality — is something we have all been shown, willing or unwilling, in these years. Many have turned to David Whyte for his gorgeous, life-giving poetry and his wisdom at the interplay of theology, psychology, and leadership — his insistence on the power of a beautiful question and of everyday words amidst the drama of work as well as the drama of life. The notion of “frontier” — inner frontiers, outer frontiers — weaves through this hour. We surface this as a companion for the frontiers we are all on just by virtue of being alive in this time.David Whyte is the author of many books of poetry and prose. He grew up with a strong, imaginative influence from his Irish mother among the hills and valleys of his father's Yorkshire. He now makes his home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. He holds a degree in Marine Zoology and has worked as a naturalist guide in the Galapagos Islands. His books include The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America, Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words, and The Bell and the Blackbird. His latest collections are David Whyte: Essentials and Still Possible.Find the transcript for this show at onbeing.org.This show originally aired in April, 2016.

Just weeks after China signed a security agreement with Solomon Islands, that was met with outrage in New Zealand and Australia, it is now pushing a region-wide deal with almost a dozen more Pacific Island nations. The deal would cover policing, security and data communications. Corin Dann spoke with Dr Anna Powles, a senior lecturer at Massey University's Centre for Defence and Security.

Kristine Stolakis, director of Netflix's acclaimed documentary Pray Away, and Lynne Gerber, author of Seeking the Straight and Narrow, join us to discuss conversion therapy and ex-LGBTQ ministries. We explore the beliefs these organizations promote about gender and sexuality, why such groups remain prominent today, and how to end conversion therapy for good.
Mike Overlie and Indigo are back on Dreams and Detours to continue the conversation about men connecting to their feelings. Susan and Mike dig into the incredible results that occur when men slow down enough to acknowledge what they are feeling, and subsequently what they need. It is true that small steps create great change. And who wouldn't want to push away the tornado-like chaos in exchange for some peace. Mike points to our relationship with dogs as being a beautiful guide in learning how to move on quickly from the insanity life can throw us. In his book, Let Your Dog Lead, Mike shares his own emotional awakening and how that was a massive life changer.

On this episode, we talked about: Being the confident hunter in our lives Pushing yourself to the next level Willing to do the hard work when nobody is looking In life, there is a risk to everything that we do Seeking comfort in the discomfort Letting others do the work Giving yourself the tools to be successful Inaction can still have action and vice versa "How are we willing to hunt in our lives for the things that we desire and to provide for ourselves and our family?" "Nothing gets handed to you in this life, you have to do work for it, sometimes it's a little less work and sometimes it's a lot of work" "You have to be willing to risk whatever is in your life that got you to this point, you have to seek comfort in the discomfort" Let's connect over on Instagram: @Johnny.Elsasser
Seeking after glory in this life is seeking worship that belongs to God alone. The purpose of glory is not for man's pride to be puffed up, but to reflect God and mediate His presence to the world. Bible Reading: Psalms 56-58 Verse of the day: Psalm 57:5, "Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens! May your glory shine over all the earth." Word of the day: Glory. It is the Hebrew word: כָּבוֹד (kaw-bode').

Elizabeth Hall is originally from Western NY although her late husbands's job took her up and down the east coast for many moves before finally settling in North Texas into their “forever home”. She has two amazing daughters from her marriage to Bryan and is now a bonus mom to a third charming little lady who also lost her mom at a young age. Together with her “chapter two” Dave and an adventurous puppy named Archie, this newly-blended family has ample amounts of grit and determination to surf the waves of grief and trauma together. Elizabeth began dealing with grief years before her fit husband suddenly passed away from a heart attack in 2019…with the death of her mother in 2015. Her mom courageously battled multiple forms of cancer for many years while Elizabeth was in high school, college and beyond. Elizabeth was able to travel back and forth to help both of her parents through this difficult time. It took a few years for Elizabeth to begin to process the death of her mother and whence was finally ready… tragedy stuck again with the death of Bryan. Now a frequent podcast guest and involved in many grief- groups, Elizabeth has found the best way for coping with her grief is through activism and advocacy of learning how to heal. She hopes her story is able to help others dig their way out of the dark times and understand there will be better days ahead.

We met Deborah Hanlon through what we think is always the best way to meet someone, synchronicity. Let's just say that this conversation has been divinely orchestrated by our collective family and friends on the other side. And wait until you hear what happened at our very first meeting.Deborah refers to herself as an “intuitive medium,” which she'll tell you all about. Deborah's curiosity and exploration started at an early age, and was triggered by the loss of her four-year old brother, when she was three-years-old. Since then she's been on a life-long journey of discovery using science and self to find proof of what she knew deep inside, that life after death exists. She knew her brother was still around because she was able to communicate with him. Her commitment to deepen her awareness in science and spirituality, has led Deborah to become a trusted expert for matters of our hearts and souls.Her focus as a medium is to help the living transition their own ‘afterlife.” Her ability to translate specific messages with such clarity has already helped heal thousands during her sessions, which we have had the privilege to experience first hand.In her book, “In The Presence of Proof: A Medium's Guide to Creating Heaven on Earth,” which we'll discuss, she provides guidance to find peace with loss and introduces the reality that one can experience the afterlife each and every day. There is an afterlife to every moment, situation, sadness, relationship, job and even to your former self. Think about that!Deborah wants to help lift people up in every way however she can – whether that's through her sessions, workshops or her book. We cover so much in our conversation. Listen now.Visit Deborah's site to find out all of the many ways you can work with Deborah. https://deborahhanlon.com/You can follow Deborah on Facebook and Instagram @imdeborahhanlonYou can buy Deborah's book, "In the Presence of Proof," on her website or on Amazon.com.https://www.amazon.com/Presence-Proof-Mediums-Afterlife-Create-ebook/dp/B07LGLSQSR

Jesus promises to send a Holy Spirit after his resurrection and ascension to guide us to all truth. But he also says it's given to those who follow his commandments. God respects our free will and so we must make the first step to follow Jesus in the context of the church to discern the fulness of what the Holy Spirit is revealing to us.

Today's meditation focuses on a medley of Psalms expressing a longing for more of God. As you join us in this practice of Christian meditation, know you're being drawn by Divine Love. So we come as a response to this Divine invitation. How do we begin? Simple with sincerity of desire. God always gives us His undivided attention. In this space, we take a few moments to give God our undivided attention. We live in a fast paced, noisy world. Slowing down and waiting on God is hard. It takes patience and practice. But slowly, we begin to see a shifting in our awareness of God. We become more attuned to the still small voice that is whispering to our spirits. As we read and meditate on The Living Word, we are hearing God! So let these words wash over you and refresh you. There will be pauses after each verse for your own contemplation. As you listen, repeat the word or phrase that resonates with your soul. Psalm 48:9, Psalm 62:1, 63:1, 62:6, Psalm 1:2-3, Psalm 105:4, Psalm 89:15, Psalm 31:19-20 Psalm 42:5, Psalm 70:4, Psalm 84:9-11 Thank you for joining us!

Where we seek counsel or advice will shape our lives. Wise counsel is determined by how much that counsel lines up with the principles found in the word of God. Bible Reading: 2 Sam. 16-20 Verse of the day: 2 Samuel 16:23, "The advice of Ahithophel, which he gave in those days, was as if one inquired of the word of God; so was all the advice of Ahithophel regarded by both David and Absalom." Word of the day: Advice. It is the Hebrew word: עֵצָה (ay-tsaw').
This 141st day of 2022 also has the distinction of being National Waitstaff Day, and in this time of college and university graduations, my thoughts are with those people who bring food and drink to celebrations all over the globe. For most of my career in journalism, I supplemented that work by being attentive, detail-oriented, and as accurate as possible as I served customers and clients. That experience really wasn’t that much different from any of the work that goes into every single installment of Charlottesville Community Engagement, and I’m your host, Sean Tubbs. This is episode 383, and to help us all eventually get to episode 838, consider becoming a paying subscriber! On today’s program:Time is running out to tell Albemarle County your thoughts on the growth management policy that some would say has limited sprawl, and others would say has limited development Another land use lawsuit has been filed against the city of CharlottesvilleCharlottesville seeks a firm to help hire a new police chief And the spring COVID-19 surge continues with cases rising in Virginia and beyond Shout-out to Town Crier ProductionsIn today’s writer-and-publisher supported shout-out, Town Crier Productions, is the umbrella organization responsible for this Charlottesville Community Engagement newsletter. I founded the company two years ago to support my interest in bringing the community as much information as possible about local government, land use, the environment, economic development, and so much more. The company is still just getting started, and if you’d like to help, consider a subscription through Substsck, or support Town Crier Productions through Patreon. There are also other sponsorship opportunities available as the number of offerings increases. To learn more, visit the Information Charlottesville archive and click on the Support the Info button. My sincere thank you to the hundreds of subscribers who have signed on so far! COVID-19 updateOn Friday, the Virginia Department of Health reported another 3,847 cases bringing the seven-day average of new cases to 3,157. The seven-day percent positivity increased to 15.6 percent, up from 9.1 percent three weeks ago. Nationwide, the trend is toward more cases and more hospitalizations according to the Centers for Disease Control’s COVID dashboard. That tool also shows a trend toward fewer deaths per day with 242 a day reported on Thursday night. That could change as death is a lagging indicator as explained by Dr. Costi Sifri, the director of hospital epidemiology at the University of Virginia Health System. “As we see the summer surge start to move out of the northeast which is a highly vaccinated and COVID-experienced population to other parts of the country, we have concerns in the public health community that maybe what we’ve seen so far may not hold as true as the surge moves to the southeast,” Dr. Sifri said. This week, the Blue Ridge Health District discontinued its local dashboard for COVID data from within its boundaries. This follows the Virginia Department of Heath’s retirement of four dashboards. “The CDC dashboard is considered the standard when it comes to cases by vaccination status, as the definition of vaccination status is rapidly changing nationwide,” reads a newsletter from the Blue Ridge Health District. You can find local data on the VDH dashboard by selecting the appropriate geographic region on the cases tab. Children between the age of 5 and 11 are now eligible for boosters of the Pfizer vaccine. Appointments in the Blue Ridge Health District can be made online. Read the release on the Centers for Disease Control website for more information. There will be a community remembrance on Tuesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. at the outdoor ampitheater at Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital for those who died from COVID-19 hosted by area health care providers. (Facebook event page)Charlottesville opening up search for new police chiefNearly ten months since former Charlottesville police chief RaShall Brackney was fired by former City Manager Chip Boyles, the city is seeking a permanent replacement. On Friday, the city issued a request for proposals for a firm to conduct an executive search. “The City is seeking a consultant to assist the City Manager through the process of hiring a new Chief of Police who embodies the principles of 21st Century Policing and has an anti-racist focus,” reads the request for proposals. As part of the work, the selected firm will also seek community input on what the “desired characteristics and qualifications” for such a person would be. The solicitation states this will include a survey and in-person meetings. The firm will also be responsible for conducting background checks on all of the finalists. “The Chief of Police is hired by and reports to the City Manager, but upon hire will be officially confirmed by the City Council,” the request continues. The department is currently being led by Acting Police Chief Latroy Durette.The city is being run by interim City Manager Michael C. Rogers. The closing date for the executive search firm is June 15. Lawsuit filed against City of Charlottesville for rezoning of 240 Stribling A person who lives on property on Stribling Avenue has filed suit against the Charlottesville City Council seeking declaratory judgment that the rezoning of 240 Stribling Avenue in April was illegal. (read the complaint)“During the Planning Commission and Council meetings, the large amount of tax revenue to be gained from increasing the density was discussed as the primary reason for backing this ordinance,” reads paragraph eight of the suit, which was filed on May 18 and served to the city a day later. Charlottesville City Council approved the rezoning on April 18, which will allow up to 170 units on about 12 acres in the Fry’s Spring neighborhood. (read a story)The plaintiff is Cabell Marshall, who is representing herself in the matter. The suit states that Marshall “occupies a house” across from 240 Stribling, but does not specify which one until the signature at the end of the document. Much of the complaint repeats testimony made by opponents of the project, such as increased exhaust fumes and additional traffic. The suit filed on May 18 also argues that an agreement between the city and Southern Development to pay for the upfront costs of upgrading Stribling Avenue is also invalid. “Many neighbors on Stribling Avenue felt overwhelmed by [Charlie Armstrong]’s seemingly unfair advantage in getting advance encouragement directly from the city,” reads paragraph 13. “Virginia Code Section 2.3-3103 prohibits a city employee or someone in an advisory agency from using for his own benefit or that another party confidential information that he has acquired by reason of his public position and which is not available to the public.” The complaint also argues that the public hearing was invalid because it was held while Council meetings were still remote. There’s also an argument the city has not done enough to upgrade city streets, such as the intersection of Stribling Avenue and Jefferson Park Avenue.One of the first legal questions will be whether Marshall has legal standing to bring the suit forward. The owner of the house where she lives is John C. Marshall, who is not named as a part in the suit. He owns two other properties on Stribling Avenue as well as three other throughout city limits. In today’s other two shout-outs Code for Charlottesville is seeking volunteers with tech, data, design, and research skills to work on community service projects. Founded in September 2019, Code for Charlottesville has worked on projects with the Legal Aid Justice Center, the Charlottesville Fire Department, and the Charlottesville Office of Human Rights. Visit codeforcville.org to learn about those projects. The final comes from another Patreon supporter who wants you to go out and read a local news story written by a local journalist. Whether it be the Daily Progress, Charlottesville Tomorrow, C-Ville Weekly, NBC29, CBS19, WINA, Charlottesville Inclusive Media, or some other place I’ve not mentioned - the community depends on a network of people writing about the community. Go learn about this place today!Albemarle closing survey on growth management policy Like many localities across Virginia’s Fifth District including Nelson County and Danville, Albemarle County is currently reviewing its Comprehensive Plan. State law requires localities to prepare such plans and update them on a periodic basis. Albemarle is reviewing its plan in a four-phase process and the first phase will take a look at the county’s growth management policy. A survey for input closes on Sunday at midnight. “The current Comp Plan directs new residential, commercial, retail, office, and industrial development into the Development Areas,” reads the first part of a StoryMap that seeks to explain the history of the growth management policy. “The Rural Area is intended to be used for agriculture, natural resource protection, and some residential homes.”That’s roughly five percent of the county’s 726 square miles. Albemarle’s first Comprehensive Plan in 1971, and originally envisioned a much larger development area. This was at a time when Charlottesville still had the ability to annex county land if it could prove to a judge that the city would be able to provide urban services more efficiently. However, subsequent plans reduced that area due to concerns such as siltation at the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir, which opened in 1967 and soon began to fill in. Another issue was the high cost to build water and sewer infrastructure to remote areas. Several villages have been removed since, such as the ones in Earlysville, Ivy, North Garden, and Stony Point. In the early 90’s, four areas were added including the Village of Rivanna, the North Fork Research Park, and what is now being developed as North Pointe. For the full history, read part two of the StoryMap.

Nobody wants to be sad. We actively avoid it, and use all the technology in our power to distract ourselves from it. But Susan Cain says, maybe we should seek sadness out. She knows a thing or two about it. Her books about introversion and quiet reflection are New York Times bestsellers, and her TED talk has been viewed 40 million times. Her latest book, "Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole," is about what we miss when we stop confronting sad feelings. Susan explains that reflecting on pain -- including the pain of others -- is something we need more of in our lives, especially in a digital world, where we increasingly only see vacation photos, smiling kids, and job promotions. This practice can be about deep personal connection, or simply seeking a sad song or choosing a heartbreaking movie once in a while. After all, there's a reason history's most enduring art is about longing and loss. This episode references Whitney's recent newsletter, which you can read (and subscribe to!) here: No Time Like the Present
