As a human, what are our latent capabilities? Sonia Choquette is a world-renowned intuitive and spiritual teacher who specializes in helping others recognize that we are all endowed with a sixth sense that we can count on. A masterful teacher committed to strengthening intuition in our daily lives, she is the best-selling author of ten books and numerous audio editions.A highly trained intuitive, with extensive background in the mysticism of East and West, Sonia was educated at the University of Denver and at the Sorbonne in Paris, and holds a Ph.D. in metaphysics.Sonia says, “I am intuitive because I was encouraged at all times to be awake, aware, and guided by my sixth sense. I grew up in an environment that treated intuition not only as natural, but actually essential to successful navigation in life. Intuition is a gift that we all have, that we can all experience, that we can all trust and that we all need!"
Listen to a unique light hearted 50 minutes discussion of how Sonia, a catalyst for conscious connection, reconnects us to our breath and the spiritual dimension of who we are as an individual human as well as an extension of the vast super organism called humanity.
When we realise we are all sacred and that we are all connected to source, we can intuitively understand that we are spiritual beings having an earth experience. That we are far more than we ever thought possible and that a great shift in consciousness for goodwill and love is upon us as an emergent planetary civilisation.Sonia Choquette http://www.trustyourvibes.com
Jonathan Cole's mission and passion is the transition to solar energy (in all its forms).He’s been researching, developing and using solar energy for his household needs for 28 years and now has made it his mission to provide the knowledge about how to utilize solar energy in an affordable, durable, low maintenance and user-friendly way.With hot water costing around 30% of NZ's household electricity costs, we note that Germany, the leader in solar technology and use, is closer to the North pole than NZ is to the South pole, so why are New Zealanders not using this long lasting technology?By deploying this technology throughout NZ, this would give us breathing space from the need to dam rivers and scramble to find more ways to produce electricity.
Also, how do we mobilise the community to clean up rivers, recycle and reduce consumer products, by making them last longer. Houses built in Europe can be hundreds of years old, but be refurbished to be modern inside.Why build temporary houses and apartments and waste valuable resources when we can build more durable structures? What incentives do we need to realise that we as a humanity have huge ecological challenges to surmount if we are to leave a healthy planet for our children?Also, finding Durable Prosperity and actualising it.And what is an Eco-Industrial revolution?Can we be Socially Responsible?Jonathan Cole - www.lightontheearth.org
