We celebrate New Year’s Eve in the daytime with spoken word poets Matthew Rucker, Khary Jackson, and Brittany Delaney. They perform Monday night January 4th at the Soap Boxing Slam at the Artists Quarter in St. Paul.
Also this week, Steven Boyett talks about his novel Elegy Beach, the long-awaited sequel (26 years!) to his post-apocalyptic fantasy, Ariel.
The final Echo Chamber program of 2009…and what a Dubby New Year special it was. Kicked off with Ghetto Priest’s cool “Auld Lang Syne/Slave’s Lament” track, and filled with songs of peace and joy…and remembrance. Happy New Year to all listeners from Dr. StrangeDub & DJ Baby Swiss and all the great people at KFAI-FM.
“Mother Clare Watts, Certified Midwife, Ordained Minister, Priest and author of the Book, Giving Birth to God”
Kinshasha shared a powerful hour of conversation with Mother Clare Watts. The conversation covers the history of religion, fear, death, reincarnation and living our best life.
Mother Clare Watts is an ordained Priest and Master Teacher in the Order of Christ-Sophia. She began her early training in the late 1970’s and was ordained a Minister-Deacon in 1984. She served as such in Kentucky and in Massachusetts, where she was ordained a Priest in 1996 and a Master Teacher in 2001, by Father Peter Bowes. Mother Clare wears purple robes, signifying her standing as a Master Teacher, which is equivalent to a Guru in the Eastern traditions.
