-Dr. Dale Emmert, Clinical Hypnotherapist
Dr Dale is a fellow Hypnotist here in Dallas. He believes that each and every one of us has a life path and destiny. For some, this path is obvious and natural. For others, it continues to be a struggle to not only envision a path, but also how to achieve it. We have the ability to rephrase our inner speech to produce abundance and unlimited potential for our lives. There is a rich and healthy “Goldmine” in all of us ready to be cultivated and harvested.
We’ll chat about our internal programming, consciousness, addictions, pain management, healing and our power to create using our amazing minds
Swami Beyondananda/Steve Bhaerman
Join me as we chat and laugh a lot about life, spirituality, perspectives and more But there is another side to Swami. His alter ego, Steve Bhaerman recently completed a book with cellular biologist Bruce Lipton, Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and How to Get There from Here. Offering a heartening view of our evolutionary future based on modern science and ancient wisdom. the book has been called “world-changing” by spiritual luminary Deepak Chopra as well as political commentator Thom Hartman. So we will have lots to explore and giggle about.
In the guise of Swami Beyondananda, Steve Bhaerman is a fount of comedy disguised as wisdom – or is it wisdom disguised as comedy? Noted author Marianne Williamson called Steve “the Mark Twain of our generation” because the comedy isn’t just hilariously funny, but also offers sharp social commentary and spiritual perspective.

Rinpoche is greatly appreciated by his students for the way he tirelessly makes himself available and helps them realize qualities of wisdom, peace of mind and compassion. Rinpoche is head of numerous humanitarian and cultural preservation projects in Tibet, India and Nepal. Since he left Tibet in 1998, he has worked closely with His Holiness, the Dalai Lama and his government. Namkha Rinpoche is an old friend of Lodi Gyari Rinpoche, special envoy of HH the Dalai Lama in Washington D.C. and spokesperson designated by the Dalai Lama to engage in negotiations with Chinese leadership.
