Upcoming Airdates

Oneness: The Big Picture

While deeply embedded in the core teachings of many great religions and almost all mystical and native traditions, the concept of "Oneness" or "Unity Consciousness" is now being explored by a growing number of scientists, who are applying the principle of Oneness to all life and the exquisite mechanism through which all living systems function and relate.

Dreams, Visions and Realities

Human beings have always been fascinated by their dreams, and have long debated their meaning, purpose and significance. As scientists investigate the chemical and biological origins of dreaming, many indigenous cultures explore their dreams as a deeply spiritual connection that links humanity with the core of all life.

The Interspiritual Dialogues with Father Thomas Keating

The Interfaith initiatives of the late twentieth century-the opening of dialogue and sharing of wisdom among leaders and practitioners of different religions -- have flowered into an exciting new possibility for spiritual exploration and expression. The late Wayne Teasdale coined the term "Interspirituality" to describe this new spiritual perspective, where beneath the diversity of theological beliefs, rites, and observances lies a deeper unity of experience that is our shared spiritual heritage.

Earth Wisdom

In recent years, more have become aware of the unique wisdom in the cosmologies and spiritual practices of indigenous societies. While this native wisdom has always been part of human existence, its teachings have remained outside so-called "formal" religions, leading to zealous missionary campaigns seeking to stamp out this "paganism" from the face of the earth.

Sound of Soul

Sound of the Soul is a compelling portrait of an Arab country where Muslims, Christians, and Jews have lived together in relative peace for centuries. This powerful music-driven documentary demonstrates how music is a unifying, transcendent force, and a powerful starting point for reducing conflict and crossing religious divides. Beautifully photographed during the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music, Sound of the Soul presents unforgettable performances from groups from Morocco, Ireland, Russia, Afghanistan, Mauritania, the USA, Portugal and France.
