    21/02/2018 Duration: 01h11min

    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 multip

    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

    15/12/2017 Duration: 57min

    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 hav

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 le

    15/11/2017 Duration: 01h00s

    This is Part 2 in a series we're doing on The Urantia Book, a sacred text considered to be a divine revelation of our time by many people.

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

  • Ep. 45: Hollis Crittendon on Addiction, Spirituality, and Choices for Recovery

    25/10/2017 Duration: 01h10min

    Today we interview Hollis Crittendon, Executive Director of Choices for Recovery in Charlotte, NC.  Hollis shares his own harrowing and miraculous addiction/recovery journey and talks about the relationship between addiction, recovery, and spirituality. 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.

    30/08/2017 Duration: 59min

    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!

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?
