Finding Your Voice or Silent Expression?

Jo Ann Fore This week on Writers' Voices we will be diving into two seemingly disparate forms of creative expression, but perhaps we will find unexpected similarities between them. 

First, we will be joined by popular blogger Jo Ann Fore, author of "When a Woman Finds Her Voice: Overcoming Lifes' Hurts and Using Your Story to Make a Difference."  In this book, Jo Ann shares her own history as a victim of abuse and poor life choices and how she found her voice, as well as the stories of many other women who have broken the shell of silence and found healing through speaking out (or writing.) Jo Ann is also the founder of the web site WriteWhereItHurts.org, which encourages others to use writing as a healing tool.

Then, at 1:30, we welcome Fairfield resident Wade Kernohan, who was recommended to us by his publisher Rodney Charles of 1st World Publishing, also of Fairfield.  Rodney says Wade's book, "Marks on a Page" is the most unusual he has ever published.  The book is described as "an assemblage of ink strokes"  that become "expressive ideas that demonstrate the relevance of abstract art..."  and as a way to "expand your expressive repetoire."  Perhaps another way of finding your voice, symbolically?

Join us for these explorations!

Todd Rundgren - Healing

I've spent most of the last 3 months helping to keep my father healthy, as he goes in and out of hospitals, rehab facilities, and psych wards, so this todd rundgrenweek I'm conjuring the magic of Todd Rundgren's albums "Healing" and "Initiation." Here's what he's singing:

I had a visitation in my sleep last night
Something was calling to me from a blinding light
And told me not to fear it; hear it.

It said "it’s time to make the world a little wiser.
There are enough destroyers and criticizers.
The world needs a healer, a healer."

Martin Zucker discusses "Earthing"

EarthingThe healing power of the earth is discussed on this week's Writers' Voices. Martin Zucker will share recent discoveries of the electric signal that the earth sends out that helps maintain health and governs our bodies intricate mechanisms. Topics that are the subject of Martin's book "Martin ZuckerEarthing:The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?". The book tells of how inflammation, stress, pain, fatigue, and poor sleep have been cured by, literally, staying in touch with the earth.

Martin Zucker, a former Associated Press foreign correspondent, has written a dozen books and hundreds of magazine articles about health, nutrition, and fitness.

Don't miss this enlightening down to earth interview! 

Like many of us, the 1970s were a time of spiritual awakening for Todd Rundgren. This Sunday morning at 8:00 AM (3:00 AM Hawaiian time), I spend an hour sharing some of his healing and initiation music.

His album "Initiation" reflects describes his awakening, starting off with biblical references and gnostic experiences of "Real Man":


When I was a child I thought as a child
I spoke as a child - I didn't know better.
But now I'm a man, I look like a man,
I'm old as a man and I should know better.

As a result, he now inspires and empowers audiences with his presentations, workshops, training programs and consultations as he shares the unique healing gifts and insights that came from his remarkable near death journey.

In his workshops he gives simple, yet powerful techniques to enjoy greater physical, emotional, and spiritual well being and teaches a self treatment healing method.
