I can't tell you how much fun it's been, and at times frightening (!), actually, to launch the new radio show & podcast "On the Front Porch with Ami Chen: Spiritual Dialogues for the 21st Century." Thank you for your e-mails, phone calls and Facebook messages of love and support. I include some of them here as we step into the fourth show (this Friday, March 23) ... on which I am now encouraging callers-in.
Your wisdom and your questions, your dialogue, will help to ground the show in the "real world," the issues we all face, and in the aliveness of simple truth shared between human beings. Here is what I have heard so far from you ...
"I love your spirit of bringing spirituality down to earth where we can be ordinary and where we can support and help each other with our blind spots and misunderstandings.
And your courage has been such a support for me, more than you can realize. I have studied the mystics from all the major religions my whole life and I am passionate about doing what little I can to help end religious intolerance.
I applaud your willingness to throw away any form, even one created around the 3P's, for the sake of Truth. There is such freedom in this."
--Dicken Bettinger, Ph.D.
"I really enjoyed last week's show...
I found it beautiful and touching.
I love how you talked about teaching & teachers being everywhere.
And what I also heard is how truth is everywhere."
--Chantal Burns, Coach & Consultant
"I got goosebumps today when I heard you speak of sharing life changing experiences that bring insights to all ... through expressing our true selves. Thank you so much for sharing your journey and I'm looking forward to the next show!"
"I so much appreciate the inclusive way you talk about being on the path of realization. It is like a breath of fresh air."
"You spoke from your heart with courage and humility, so that only clarity,
respectfulness and neutral-ness came across. How did you do that?! ... It
was so perfect and inspired. It hit me that, yes, this will be a classic ... and so helpful to many people."
The show airs live every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month at 10 am Pacific time, US. You can click on this link to get to the radio station & my host page at Contact Talk Radio. In the next month, I will be lining up guests for the show--some of the most beautiful people alive in this world, as far as I'm concerned. And what kind of life am I living to be able to do this? Blessed beyond my wildest dreams.
You can find podcasts of the show on iTunes and it would be helpful if the show started to get some iTunes "reviews" there.
