Heart of Mind



Yesterday I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kathryn Davis on PRN in New York on the Heart of Mind Radio Show. I quickly learned that she is an engaging conversationalist, truly interested in the subjects she features on her show. She has been called "a seeker of truth and beauty through the exploration of life, love, energy and cosmic consciousness." She is known as a vibrational healer, artist and mystic, among other things such as being a Reiki healer and doula. The two of us have a lot in common and really hit it off, as you'll hear.

PRN stands for Progressive Radio Network and many of the shows, which are archived as podcasts on the internet, center around mind, body, spirit, healing and self-help. There is also support for inspirational topics, art and politics. PRN is known as the "thinking person's radio station" and it is noncommercial. I thought it was very cool to be featured on there.

As artists and authors, where we choose to share our work is important to the process of developing a meaningful career while seeking out a receptive audience. I suggest you bookmark the radio's webpage, if these sorts of topics of are interest, and I imagine that they are if you are visiting this blog. There are many fascinating authors, healers, artists and speakers featured every day that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

The interview aired live in New York City and was designed to raise awareness of my upcoming herbal workshop there. I also had the opportunity to share the themes of my nonfiction published books, as well as the soon-to-be released, "No Barren Life" novel.

In about 45 minutes, Kathyrn and I discussed the meaning, theory, practice and history of African American herbal healing. We chatted about the relevance of these practices to a cross-cultural audience, as well as my motivation for sharing these traditions in my books and workshops.

    1. Thanks Susan! Yes, it's a bit on the long side. The host talks about some other things before and after my interview so I haven't heard the entire show yet either.
