#541 – My Shamanic Path with Sergey Baranov

Transcript

Sergey Baranov is the author of ‘PATH’, a book that will be of interest to any spiritual seeker who seeks honesty above all else.

Living in various countries and growing up in different cultures, Sergey gained an understanding of the essential, a core commonality of human experience that lies beneath the differences to be found in every culture. By walking different paths and seeing through their limitations, Sergey found shamanism as a unifying path for all people regardless of their cultural background.

By following his heart and intuition, Sergey was led to find his home outside of western industrial consumerist culture, which is largely a pathological society because its central values are based on a limited understanding of reality that is predominantly materialistic in and of itself in it’s fundamental denial of human consciousness – a fact that contributes to the madness we see in the world that is drowning in a pool of electromagnetic and chemical pollution together with such dangerous technologies as genetic manipulation and the ongoing attempt to merge humanity with machines.

#538 – The Little Dog That Could with Filippo Voltaggio

Best-Selling Author Filippo Voltaggio is also a Public Speaker, Radio Show Host and Life Coach, with the moniker “Master of Change.”

Among the many life changes that have earned him the moniker “Master of Change,” Filippo started his professional career working his way up to Junior Management in a Fortune 500 Top 3 Company. Despite many Industry awards and accolades, he left to pursue his childhood love, music. As a singer/songwriter and entertainer, he put two CDs on the market, appeared before Presidents, sang on PBS as a soloist with full orchestra several times, and received many awards, including numerous Sergio Franchi Awards and NIAF Grants. He and his songs have been featured in several Hollywood films including “A Walk in The Clouds” with Keanu Reeves and “Noise” with Tim Robbins.

In yet another life change, Filippo temporarily put his singing career on hold to pursue another of his loves, hosting. After an initial foray into terrestrial radio broadcasting with his show, “Filippo and the Chef,” he landed on his current hit, as the host of “The LIFE CHANGES Show.” In a short time, he has already earned President Barack Obama’s “President’s Call to Service Award” and the “Master Award” from the Save the World Foundation.
