Love, love, LOVE this episode!!!!  Answered so many questions and reaffirmed my spirituality.  Thank you!!!
 
"Not often do I have a chance to give thanks for such wonderful programming! Tonight I just "happened" on you and my world shifted. Thank you so much for the opportunity to be part of this 'cosmological family'". ~ Judy Newman
 
"One of the best and most needed discussions on TV. This should be on prime time every day. I will tell everyone I know about it and will look forward to the next time I can be part of this timely wonder. This is what TV should be about. Thank you so much." ~ Violet
 
"Thank you so much... I enjoy all of your shows and appreciate all the hard work you have put into the programming and content. I have learned so much."
 
“The conversation needs to be here. It is a spiritual conversation, like it or not. When hate runs wild on the street killing people. What do you call it?”
 
"Thank you to both guests for your beauty, your teachings, and your grace. Thank you, Phil, for your curiosity and your deep listening!"
 
"I am blown away by how incredibly awesome this series is! I haven’t finished watching them all, but I am deeply moved and touched by these discussions. So powerful! Amazing TV, please keep doing what you are doing!" ~ Katy Throop Montanez

“What a powerful conversation and the value of our personal stories. Destiny as a connection and as medicine. We are all a part of one another.”
 
“My job is to give away Love. Depression gets in the way by disconnecting me from the Universe. Music is often the way back for me. Music is Love. I'm very grateful for the Love from Global Spirit and the Universe.”
 
"Insightful, inspiring. Perfect investment of time."
 
“Please keep producing Global Spirit. I'm an amateur student of comparative theology and a musician so this is where my heart is. We need more food for the soul!
 
“I am grateful for this gift on...the first annual anniversary of pilgrimage to honor my mother and her journey I was clinically prepared for, but who is truly prepared to send off their mother forever from this plane of earthly existence never to be seen again except in altered states of dreams…”
 
"Absolutely real, deeply human, deeply moving !!"
 
“That which makes our eyes well up in happy tears and which fills our heart with unknown serenity, that is divinity, and music is one which gives that out of body experience.”

Wonderful program. I was so happy when I saw it on TV yesterday. I hope I will be able to see all the other episodes as well. I am trying to find out if this program is going to be on every Sunday or other days during the week. BEAUTIFUL, THANK YOU!

"I love this show! Try to watch it folks." ~ Magdalene Jaeckel
 
"My son recently passed on at the age of 24. I keep one of his t-shirts clipped to my headboard by means of a portable fan. It dislodged at 5:30am awakening me. I turned the tv on and Global Spirit was playing. I was directed to spirituality a few months ago by my son. I feel he wanted me to see this program to clarify my journey. The Spirit certainly works in mysterious ways. Namaste!"
 
"Thank you for bringing Global Spirit's programs for the world's enlightenment. It is uplifting to listen to human beings share their wisdom in joyful conversations without defense or a teleprompter. God's Love in action will always be PEACE. May the creator/cosmos bless you for this program that not only serves to unify and understand each other, but also with God and our cosmic consciousness."
 
"Your Global Spirit TV program is a refreshing insight to Consciousness. It reflects many of my guru, Swami Amar Jyoti's, teachings as well which is a reminder of our spiritual heritage by the Masters of many traditions. Thank you for airing this program." ~ Carol Maun
 
“This movement of being part of the world while still living in a contemplative atmosphere is really so powerful.”
 
"Thank you for sharing this beautiful story. It opened my heart."
 
“Tonight I said to my 3 & 6 years old after a long day, ‘Some days are better than others, but life is better with you.’ They both started singing the song all on their own. 🙂 I love that Soulrocker music is a part of our lives thanks to you!”
 
“Our entire experience of life is preparation for the great transition. Let us live with joy, love, and understanding as the pathway.”
 
“A very timely conversation. I spent time with my 97 year-old aunt last night as she is dying... My aunt told me many years ago she would be my mother... Last night I told her she was free to go and be with my mother, her sister. Thank you for this most informative talk. The part on forgiveness was amazing.”
 
“Being in a rural community, online spiritual communities are very helpful for me.”
 
“I am so touched, I am choking with deep emotion, teary eyed and ecstatic.”
 
“For me it is my greatest source of Joy, nothing can ever take my joy because it abides within me and Divine.”
 
“Divine choice means I am whole and my journey is to discover that we all are whole. No need to fix, no need to do. Intention from deep within.”
 
"A very insightful series with many wonderfully rich, spiritually diverse discussions. Fascinating!" ~ Anonymous

"Global Spirit — what does that mean?
Collective commonality… We have one thing in common.
We were born with love, by love, for love.
We were infected with fear. Nobody is born with fear."

Carlos Santana, Musician, Author
Season 2 Presenting Host

Experience

Dive in for a direct, trans-denominational inner experience through meditations, chants and prayers led by some of the spiritual teachers who appear on Global Spirit.

Adam Bucko Leads a Contemplative Prayer

“Each Global Spirit program
conveys an experience —
a sense of feeling it rather
than just talking about it.”

John Cleese, Actor
Global Spirit Season 1 Presenter

“Belief is a perspective and it can serve you for a time, but holding a single belief indefinitely is like clasping onto the rung of the ladder and staying there.
The ladder is meant to be climbed.”

Pir Zia Inayat Khan, Sufi Teacher
Global Spirit Program Guest
