“Explorations in Consciousness With Dr. Joe”: A New Radio Show

The show will start on Tuesday, August 13 and will continue every Tuesday for an hour at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time until November 5. It will be hosted on the 7th Wave Channel of VoiceAmerica (NOT Voice OF America). Each episode will be re-broadcast several times during the week it first airs, and there will be an archive of past episodes. You may access the episodes for free, either by going to my homepage on the VoiceAmerica website, or by downloading the Voice America app to your smart phone and searching for my show. If you subscribe for free to VA, you will get a program by email.
If you miss the first broadcast, you can hear, via my VoiceAmerica home page, the show re broadcast at 10:00 pm Eastern time.

Click on the show you want and then the “Listen Now” link to hear the show. There are also links to download the episode as an MP3 file and to get it free from iTunes.
During the thirteen weeks, I will focus with my guests on past-lives, past-life regression, and related matters. We will cover many topics including the nature of past lives, the therapeutic effects of past-life regression, soul contracts, reincarnating souls groups, children’s past lives, incarnations in Atlantis and in the time of Christ, Life Between Lives, “spiritual birth control,” and much more. My underlying metaphysical approach is based on the Seth Material channeled by Jane Roberts. For more detail, check out the list of episodes following this introduction.
You may be interested in how all this came about. On April 18 of this year, I was able to purchase Jane Roberts’ work table on which she wrote some of her own books, accessed her “spiritual library,” painted her sketches, and read proofs of the Seth Books. The table was in her writing room in the “Hill House” in Elmira, New York, and later in the house in Sayre, Pennsylvania, that her husband, Robert Butts, and his new wife, Laurel Davies-Butts, lived in for a number of years. (Jane died in 1984, and Rob in 2008).
I am awed and joyous over the presence in my home of this table filled with great psychic energy. I hope to do some of my own channeled writing (though with a computer rather than with a typewriter or pen!), while seated at the table. It is no accident that the table found its way to my group room–what a great thing for me to manifest!
And it is no accident that, on the same day that I received from Laurel the first half of Jane’s table, I received also a phone call from the Senior Executive Producer for VoiceAmerica, the largest creator and distributer of internet radio in the world. I thought with excitement that maybe he wanted to interview me about some aspect of my work. Well, I was wrong–he wanted me to submit a proposal to host my own radio show once a week for an hour for thirteen weeks! I was flabbergasted, awed, and, I must admit, a bit scared. Geez, I would be heard in 32 countries!
Within a week, my proposal was accepted. The producer said that he had asked his staff to search for potential hosts on the internet, focussing on spiritual counseling, hypnotherapy, and past-life regression. I was one of about 12 individuals who had made the final cut out of 300 contenders. And I knew nothing about any of this (though my soul certainly did) until he called on the 18th. He also told me that what clinched the deal for him was that I said that the Seth Material would serve as the underlying metaphysics for my discussions!
So, please join my guests and me for a spectacular exploration in consciousness!
DESCRIPTIONS OF THE 13 EPISODES:
Date: August 13, 2013
Episode Title: Past Lives and the Seth Material, Part 1: An Interview with Rich Kendall
In this episode, Rich Kendall, one of the New York Boys in Psychic Jane Roberts’ ESP class in the early ‘70s, will help set the stage for the entire 13-week focus on past lives. Seth, the “energy personality essence” channeled by Jane from 1963 through her death in 1984, talked a great deal about past lives, including the idea that they do not actually exist in our “pasts.” Besides discussing Sethian notions about the true nature and influence of past lives, Rich will share some of his own encounters with Seth and what that gentle, but provocative personality said specifically about Rich’s past lives. Rich will also share the impact of Seth’s teachings on his life then and now. Some of his reflections can be found already in his book, The Road to Elmira, the first volume of a proposed three-volume work.

Episode Title: The Nature of Past Life Regression and Participants’ Stories
In this episode, Dr. Joe’s guests are several individuals who have participated in either a group or individual past life regression with him. With their help, he will explain the process of a typical past life regression and the difference between the individual and group modalities. They will discuss what is most important to remember in order to have a successful journey to a past life. They will focus also on the pitfalls that can frustrate success, such as fear both of not being able to access a past life and, paradoxically, of being able to do so. Tips for overcoming other potential obstacles in the process will be offered, as well as tips about how to select a regressionist. Finally, one or more of the guests will have a chance to discuss aspects of his or her past life regression and the effect the journey has had on his or her present incarnation.
Date: August 27, 2013
Episode Title: Children’s Past Lives: An Interview with Carol Bowman
In this episode, Dr. Joe will ask Carol Bowman, M.S., to discuss her fascinating and paradigm-busting research on children’s past lives. Stimulated by the voluminous, pioneering work on this topic by Dr. Ian Stevenson at the University of Virginia, Carol furthered his research in her first book in 1997, Children’s Past Lives. In that book, she describes how she came to believe in her own children’s accounts of past lives and gives guidance to parents about the nature of this phenomenon and how to respond appropriately to the past life disclosures of their children. Her second book published in 2001, Return from Heaven, is the first to describe reincarnation in the same family, that is, for instance, the return of a deceased adult as the newborn of the daughter of the deceased adult. While family return in particular has many implications for family members, the greatest implication is that children’s past lives offer the greatest proof for the actuality of past incarnations.

Episode Title: Past Lives and Attached Entities: An Interview with Greg McHugh
In this episode, Dr. Joe invites Greg McHugh, CHT, to share the ideas incorporated in his book, The New Regression Therapy. Greg’s trainings and initiation experience in a semi monastic Gnostic Christian order contributed to the development of protocols for the healing of past life and present life wounds and limiting beliefs through the application of Divine Presence. Such Presence may be drawn upon from the client’s Higher Self, Interlife resources, from Angelic Higher Resources, and great beings like the Heart of Elijah. Greg will discuss how he releases attached entities (mostly spirits who have left their bodies but have not gone into the Light). He will explain how such spirits’ own feelings and issues affect the client. He may also talk about his remote regression protocol with the use of a surrogate for a client who cannot be physically present in the therapy room.
Date: September 10, 2013
Episode Title: Past Life Regression and Shamanism: An Interview with Dana Robinson, B.A., C.S.C. and Shana Robinson, M.S.
In this episode Dr. Joe discusses with Shana and Dana, authors of Shamanism & the Spirit Mate, the connections between Past-Life Regression and Shamanism. After discussing the nature of core shamanism, Shana and Dana and Dr. Joe share how they c0-created and c0-facilitated the first ever workshop combining the techniques of past life regression and shamanic journeying to effect healing. Lasting two days, the workshop showed how seemingly very different modalities were in many ways very similar in their intentions, actions and effects. Workshop participants who call in will discuss their impressions of this unique merging of disciplines, including their enlarged sense of their multi-dimensionality.
Date: September 17, 2013
Episode Title: Past Lives and Soul Contracts: An Interview with Linda Baker
In this episode, Dr. Joe interviews Linda Baker, RN, CHT, author of The Bridge Between the Worlds, Soul Contracts and co-author of Alchemical Scents.. Linda will describe the nature and purpose of Soul Contracts, particularly how they affect our lives and relationships today. In the first of two kinds of contract, souls reincarnate together to work through unresolved issues between them; in the second kind, the personality makes a contract with his or her soul to end a pattern of events that persists no matter who the other players are. Linda will also talk about what she calls Spiritual Post-Conception Birth Control, a very loving process wherein the pregnant woman can communicate with her unborn child about whether the time is right for a birth; when it is agreed that the time is not right, a natural miscarriage can occur. Of course, what karma is and is not is a theme that will permeate the discussion.
Date: September 24, 2013
Episode Title: Past Life Regression for Intact Groups: An Interview with Janet Cunningham
Dr. Joe interviews Janet Cunningham, Ph.D., author of A Tribe Returned, the amazing story of herself and 25 other people who have memories of being together in a Native American Tribe. Told that she was the reincarnation of the daughter of Chief Silver Eagle, Janet will talk about how she unwittingly gathered together members of that past tribe. Janet was told also that she was selected by the Grandfathers to be the next Chief. As a past-life therapist, she then assisted the reincarnated members in releasing their traumatic memories of a devastating massacre. Janet not only did enormous healing work for the friends, family members and clients who were part of that tribe, but also pioneered a new regression modality practiced today by very few other practitioners: intact-group past life regression, wherein an entire group of individuals who were connected to each other in a past life are regressed together to that lifetime. Listen to a discussion of an amazing collective journey.

Episode Title: Past Lives and Natal Regression: An Interview with Tim Simmerman-Sierra
Dr. Joe interviews Tim Simmerman-Sierra, Certified Medical Support Clinical Hypnotherapist, the lead instructor at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America in Albuquerque, about Natal Regression, a modality not usually taught in hypnosis schools. This process, which begins in the Interlife, may involve information from past lives that can be used by the soul to prepare for his or her current incarnation. After becoming aware of agreements with significant others in the present incarnation, the person is taken through the moment of conception, womb time and the actual birth experience. During this journey, the soul tunes into the varying feelings and thoughts of parents and the medical personnel present at birth. Alternating between expansive and narrowed levels of awareness, clients can see patterns in their lives that are the result of unconsciously held beliefs formed during this period of development. This is one of the fastest ways to heal blocks to accessing your divine nature.

Episode Title: Past Life Regression to Capture Lost History: An Interview with Joanna Prentis and Stuart Wilson
In this episode, Dr. Joe interviews Joanna Prentis and Stuart Wilson, authors of several books, including a trilogy on the Essenes that focuses in large part on the figure of Mary Magdalene. They will discuss how they worked using regression techniques and with the channeled help of an Angel named Alariel to capture otherwise lost history. From the past-life perspective of Daniel, a friend of Joseph of Arimathea, they reveal Jesus’ healing in the tomb with the help of the Essenes. Joanna and Stuart will tell us also how they facilitated other regression subjects to reveal the real significance of Mary Magdalene as a deeply beloved spiritual partner to Jeshua; as a charismatic, powerful and articulate leader of a group of female disciples; and as a counterpoint to the dominance of some of the male disciples. Come join us for a mind-blowing excursion back to an erstwhile unknown past.
Date: October 15, 2013
Episode Title: Edgar Cayce and Past Lives in Atlantis: An Interview with Nancy Eubel
In this episode, Dr. Joe discusses with Nancy Eubel, MBA, CHT, Rt., QHHT, what the renowned psychic Edgar Cayce has said about past lives and karma and the effect of his perspective on her own teaching and facilitation of past life regression. Focusing principally on the past lives in Atlantis that Cayce revealed in his readings for others, Nancy will share with us the main implications those past lives have for us today, especially since many Atlanteans have apparently reincarnated during the present time. With its development especially of nuclear power and the potential for world-wide devastation, our current world seems eerily similar to Atlantis before each of the three cataclysms that apparently ultimately dropped the continent below the surface of the Atlantic.

Episode Title: Past Lives and Life Between Lives: An Interview with Dee Chips
In this episode, Dr. Joe interviews Dee Chips, BSW, MHt., CRM, LBLT, owner of American Holistic University and President/Owner of the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists, NATH. We will discuss the process of Life Between Lives Hypnotherapy, first popularized in the works of Michael Newton starting in 1994. In 2000, Dee, along with her late husband, Allen Chips, DCH, and in collaboration with Newton, designed and implemented the first LBL certification training program under the auspices of NATH. With the help of case studies, Dee will talk about how the process works: it starts from a client’s going back to a past life and then entering the Interlife after the death in that life and meeting guides, his/her soul group, various schools, the Council of Elders and those whom he or she will contract to work with in the next lifetime. Come join us for an absolutely fascinating excursion into a deeper reality.

Episode Title: Research on the Positive Effects of Past Life Regression: An Interview With Heather S. Friedman Rivera
In this episode, Dr. Joe interviews Heather S. Friedman Rivera, RN, JD, Ph.D. about her personal and professional discovery of the uses of Past Life Regression and the recent research she has done on the positive effects of Past Life Therapy. Plagued by chronic illnesses, Heather found much relief in Past Life Regression and decided to do research on what other participants in this modality had said were its most likely and most therapeutic effects. Her research is unique in that it relies not on anecdotal data and individual cases, but rather on a broad cross section of data gathered from respondents of various ages, gender, religious upbringing, and experiences. Among other therapeutic effects, the most prevalent reported is that death no longer holds as much fear for most participants in Past Life Regression.

Episode Title: Past Lives and the Seth Material, Part 2: An Interview with Lawrence Davidson
In this episode, Dr. Joe interviews Lawrence Davidson, another of Jane Roberts’ ESP students in the early ‘70s. Lawrence shares how he came to find out about Seth, the “energy personality essence” channeled by Jane, and why he came to Jane’s weekly classes. He also shares his own memories of how Seth approached the topic of past lives and perhaps even what Seth said about Lawrence’s own. His anecdotes about the Seth phenomenon then and through the years, and about how those early class experiences changed his life, add much color to his story. Finally, his perspectives on the San Francisco Bay Area Seth Conference he has organized for the last several years show the ongoing power of the Seth Material.
