Healing with Compassion

Healing Each Other and the Earth Through Compassion with Jon Ramer

Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest is a community engagement experience that invites people around the world to inspire one another to reveal and promote acts of compassion that better our lives, our communities, and all life on the planet. When Jon Ramer, founded Compassion Games and began “playing” in 2012, he had no idea how it would catalyze fun and creative ways to care for ourselves, each other and the earth. Playing together has changed the world and transformed the lives of millions through service projects, random acts of kindness, and Compassion Missions.

Jon Eliot Ramer is an American entrepreneur, civic leader, inventor, and musician. He is a co-founder of several technology companies and the designer of several Deep Social Networks that led to making Seattle the first city in the world to affirm Karen Armstrong’s Charter for Compassion. This birthed the International Campaign for Compassionate Cities. There are now over 450 cities around the world that have started similar campaigns. In 2012, Ramer conceived of and produced the “Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest” in response to a challenge from the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky to other cities to outdo Louisville’s compassionate action as measured by hours of community service. In 2018, Ramer co-founded SINE (Synergized Impact Network Exchange), a collaborative community that fuels collective empowerment and unprecedented unified action. SINE makes synergy happen.

By his mid-20s Alberto Villoldo was the youngest clinical professor at San Francisco State University. He was directing the Biological Self-Regulation Laboratory, investigating how energy medicine could change the chemistry of the brain. One day in his laboratory, Alberto realized that his research had to get bigger instead of smaller, that he was looking out of the wrong end of the microscope. He needed to find a system larger than the neural networks of the brain. Many others were already studying the hardware – Alberto wanted to learn to program the mind to create psychosomatic health.

You are Human by Design

You are Human by Design with Gregg Braden

A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that we are the product of something more than random mutations and lucky biology. We owe it to ourselves to embrace the evidence, the story it tells, and the healing that it can bring to our lives. Beyond any reasonable doubt, Gregg Braden will share how we’re not what we’ve been told, and much more than we’ve ever imagined.

Disaster’s Grief & Beauty

Grief and Beauty in the Wake of Disaster with Trebbe Johnson

When the places we love are devastated by human interaction, natural disaster or a combination of the two, it feels devastating and overwhelming. How do we cope? We can mourn what we’ve lost and say goodbye. We can donate money or call our congressional representatives, or we can ignore the damage entirely. However, we can also discover hope, and even beauty, in what remains. Author and Activist, Trebbe Johnson, suggests that the creation of art, ritual and even joy to honor these lost or “wounded” places is not just possible, but is in fact crucial to our collective healing.

Igniting Feminine Power

Igniting Feminine Power with Sherryl Lin

Recent events have stirred a fierce feminine power that has been dormant in many women. Women innately have the capacity for deep creative love and compassion, but also are feeling overwhelming grief, anger and even rage. How can we use these qualities to be a strong, creative force for good? How can we ignite women to participate in and even lead radical cultural change? Dr. Julie and Sherryl Lin muse into this topic and hopefully light a few fires.

Sherryl Lin has vivid memories of being a young child with a pure, loving heart who knew that everything was possible. She knew that she had intuitive abilities back then, but being that there was no one to explain to her what she was experiencing she shut that part of herself down. Sherryl Lin was always interested in spirituality and spent much of her early adult life looking for the next teacher or guru who, she was certain had the answers she was looking for. Everything shifted when, through a series of mystical, awakening experiences, Sherryl Lin began to remember her connection to Higher Levels of Consciousness and her abilities accelerated at an exponential rate.

As a Master Intuitive, Spiritual Guide and Medical Intuitive Healer, she reads the energy beneath your words, working deeply at the cellular level as a Spiritual Conduit, bringing you back into alignment with the truth of who you really are. Sherryl Lin will help you move to the next level in all areas of your life, including your health, business, life purpose, and relationships.

Don’t Push Snooze!

Don’t Push Snooze with Sherryl Lin

Women are waking. Recent events have stirred a fierce feminine power, that in many women, has laid dormant within. What are women to do with mixed emotions of deep creative love and compassion, and overwhelming grief, anger, and even rage? Many are still gripped with the dark hidden forces of toxic shame. How can we use this time to be a strong, creative force for good? Sherryl Lin says “The alarm clock went off and we’re not pushing the snooze button this time. We are rising up, fully awake and ready to move into action.”
