William ArntzWilliam Arntz, whose first major film was What The Bleep Do We Know? is a producer, director, screenwriter, president-Captured Light is Mitchell’s guest tonight, a re-airing of a popular interview.
.

William began his professional career as a research laser physicist, developing wave optics simulators for high energy lasing systems. After a few years of traveling he landed in San Francisco and began studying with his first spiritual teacher, Rama (a.k.a. Dr. Fredrick Lenz). Eventually the students were given the task of writing a software product/company whereupon William wrote “AutoSys” – a distributed event processor.

He sold the company 2 years later for a tidy sum and retired.

Soon thereafter William began attending the Ramtha School of Enlightenment. While there he became interested in getting some of the principles gleaned from his decades of spiritual inquiry out to the general public. He realized he could satisfy a life long dream and use the software proceeds to make a movie.

The film started life as a small documentary about Spirit and Science, but grew in scope (and budget) and became What the BLEEP Do We Know!? Producing, scripting, and directing the film, What the BLEEP was completed in 2004 and went on to become a global phenomena, with well over 100 million viewers experiencing the BLEEP.

bag itTonight’s program features the multi-award winning film BAG IT.
.
Taking a closer look at how reliant our society has become on plastic, which, while handy in many ways, a synthetic substance which is choking the life out of our oceans and more, this film gives us the science and the studied environmental consequences of this substance across the planet as well as health consequences in our own bodies.
.
The film has met with praise and acclaim because it powerfully highlights a serious issue which actually has some pretty simple, people-based solutions, including to reduce use of it and find substitutes which abound.
.
To discuss the film with Mitchell is the filmmaker, Suzan Beraz and Professor Frederick S. vom Saal from University of Missouri.

 Frederick S. vom SaalFrederick was given the Heinz award in fall of 2010.  He is a biologist at the University of Missouri at Columbia. He is known for discovering health problems linked to exposure to common chemicals in everyday products such as bisphenol A (BPA), a widely used ingredient in consumer products. Dr. vom Saal’s work has opened new questions about the safety of many chemicals which had been thought safe based on traditional methods used in toxicology.

The focus of his current research is on the effects of fetal exposure to low doses of natural estrogens and to estrogenic endocrine disrupting chemicals. In these studies doses are used that have been shown to be in the hormonally active range based on in vitro studies using intact cells in human serum. Pregnant mice are fed physiologically relevant rather than toxic doses of estrogenic chemicals, and effects on differentiating reproductive organs are examined for evidence of imprinting of selected genes involved in organogenesis. In addition, reproductive organ function and behavior in the offspring are examined during later life.

Results show that fetal exposure to low doses of natural and synthetic estrogenic chemicals (as much as 600,000-times lower than doses used in traditional toxicological studies) lead in males to a permanent increase in prostate size, changes in enzyme activity and steroid receptor numbers in a number of organs, a decrease in sperm production, and increased aggressiveness, while in females, changes in neuroendocrine and uterine function as well as behavior occur. These findings provide the first experimental evidence that exposure to environmentally relevant doses of man-made estrogenic chemicals found in plastics and pesticides during fetal life can irreversibly alter the course of fetal development.  

Tune in this evening for what will be a highly informative show about the significant role plastics play in harming our environment and health.

Taking a larger look at our times today, to come to a broader understanding of the energies moving through our Cosmos,
.
Mitchell has invited back to A Better World his colleague and good friend,Monty Taylor, Jungian Astrologer & Mythologist.

.
In today’s dialogue, we will come to understand some of the psychological, energetic roots of what appears as bizarre and chaotic activity on the face of this planet as well as the underlying direction in which it is moving, based on what can be culled from the art and science of astrology per the brilliant Monty Taylor.

Sustainability Conference July 3-6 at Sivananda Yoga Ranch, Woodbourne, NY
.
Mitchell will be MC of a very engaging Conference on Developing Sustainable Communities with an awesome group of people. Instead of getting ‘off the grid’, as Executive Director of the Ranch, Sri Nivasan put it, “we want to purify the grid”. What does that mean? Instead of coal, gas & oil, we move from the extraction economy to a renewable one with solar, wind, hydro-power and other naturally-occurring energies to be harnessed for electricity. Community leaders who are effecting just this kind of change in PA, NY, FL and elsewhere will be speaking as well as teachers of Permaculture, edible landscaping and on.
.
Watch this video:
.

.
The Conference, united with yoga, meditation, wonderful vegetarian meals and a panel which looks at the sustainability-spirituality continuum is situated in the Catskills. I will be MC for the Conference,panel moderator and this is going to be a great time, integrating high-minded thinking around renewable energy (largely focused on solar) and Permaculture for becoming freer from the usual dependencies we have.  See where becoming sustainable and spirituality meet.  Hope you can join us, for all or part of the Conference.  What a way to celebrate Independence Day!

.Sun, July 20th: Answering the Call to Wholeness  Event at The Wainright House

with Mitchell Rabin, Jodi Serota, JJ & Desire Hurtak, Alan Steinfeld, Kurt Johnson,

Rick Ulfik, Ron Friedman & more!!‏
,

I invite you to a day in the country, close to the L.I. Sound, for what will be a heartening & special event taking place on Sunday, July 20th, at the beautiful old mansion, the Wainwright House in Rye, NY, home for decades to a wide variety of cultural and spiritual events, ensconced in Nature on a Sunday afternoon close to but energetically far outside the city, about a 40-min. Metro-North ride.

I will be presenting with 10 other leaders of New York’s spiritual organizations, an interactive, dramatic day exploring a crucial topic for our future: the power and potential of Wholeness for ourselves, our communities and the world. Prepare to be moved by ceremony, sound experiences, novel descriptions of Wholeness, meditations and more.

Enjoy the lovely outdoor setting overlooking the water of the Long Island Sound and join in community for a beautiful experience of opening to a fuller life experience of truth through abundance and joy.  We are all so interconnected in ways we’re still discovering. This is an opportunity to also learn more about that and to ‘weigh in’ and participate.

Take a day off, come spend a day in ‘the country’ with some old friends by the water with a playful, creative spirit.  Sign up early to enjoy the lower cost. Let not cost be the barrier–any problem, just let us know.

This is a fund-raiser for Fions (Friends of the Institute of Noetic Sciences), we’re all donating our time—come enjoy.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Mitchell

Keeping Yer Eye “On the Ball”
.
PitcherFew don’t appreciate baseball, tennis, soccer or ball-based sports altogether.  When we play–and I am an avid “jock” as they say along with all the other ‘hats’ I wear, we have a phrase we always use “Keep your eye on jimmy connorsthe ball, guy!”  Because if you don’t, you could well get hit, bopped on the nose or elsewhere, and it won’t feel very good.  The point is to watch it and not get hit by it.
.
So it is with life.  There are ‘wild sports’ I’m calling “Big Boy Sports” which are mightily dangerous and hurt billions of people.  They’re not really sports–they’re a form of warfare.  Sometimes they actually use guns, tanks, missiles and drones, and at other times, they disguise the warfare as business, in fact, with the bizarre idea of “business-as-usual”.  But biz-as-usual isn’t supposed to harm people but rather, provide a useful service, product or aesthetic experience that could help people, not harm or oppress them.
.
jpmorganBut it’s all turned around today, possibly more than ever.  And it’s turned upside down basic human values, priorities and integrity, as a result, has been buried, nearly given up for dead. Multi-nationals and government have a secret deal and they win the money and power, but they have lost the real purpose of both their existences: serving the People.
.
witch meltingSo as in baseball, we want to watch the ball and if it’s coming at us, get out of the way.  The game will end.  The foolishness of these BIG players will come to an end.  We can help them do that by ‘wise buying’, that is, to buy local and avoid the BIG Boys who are perpetuating harm, and there are a lot of them.  Eventually, they will wither.  The more we do it, the more of us who do it, they will wither faster and like the wicked witch of the East, they will be heard to say: “I’m melting….!”  Indeed, we will then restore sanity to our planet, we will have a society based on renewable energy, we will develop all-sustainable, recyclable, up-cyclable systems and integrity among people will be on the upsurge.  Cycles suggest this, compassion is on the rise, and we einsteinwant to do all we can to support this.  To bring this ‘new world, new planet, new society’ long-discussed, about, we need to “go forward” in our lives, young man! which means to our frontal lobes, leaving behind the dominance of the reptilian brain, and moving into our higher brain functions, and explore what being “human” as toward Divine, is all about.  It’s a different kind of sport and can be integrated into all the others.
