The Power of Creativity and Visionary Fiction w/ Novelist Eleni Papanou

August 17, 2016

Eleni Papanou is a lightworker and author of visionary fiction. She wrote her first poem when she was an outcast at school. Honored with the name  “Greek Freak,” she believed life was plagued with misery, torment and endless suffering. A spontaneous kundalini awakening thrust Eleni on a spiritual path that constantly tested her to the breaking point by challenging her world-view and everything else she held sacred. Through visions and personal insights, Eleni eventually discovered the Universe has a sense of humor. She started laughing more—mostly at herself—whenever she caught herself taking things too seriously. After many years on the path of self-rediscovery—along with the addition of a husband, two daughters and a bout with cancer, Eleni had a lot to say. Having already written several screenplays, she decided to describe her experiences in novel form. Eleni’s second  novel, Jessie’s Song, will be published in June, and she’s currently plotting her eighth book. She’s also one of the founding members of the Visionary Fiction Alliance.

Dear Terrorist, Why do you Hate Me?

August 15, 2016


This is my debut episode on FrankieSense and More! 

What motivates Islamic terrorists? What is in the mind of terror? Our news reports from the Middle East cover events—bombings, massacres, and suicide attacks. Our newscasters take time to explain who the players are—from Hezbollah to the Iranian Quds, from ISIS to the Palestinian National Authority. But there is something underneath these events and players that fuels atrocity after atrocity in the Middle East. What is it? Tass Saada provides the answer to that question as he delves into the mind of terror, explaining what motivates extremist groups throughout the Middle East. A former Muslim and a onetime sniper with Yasser Arafat’s Fatah organization, Tass has lived it himself. At age 42, he steered his life in a radical new direction, committing it to Jesus. Tass not only describes the motivations and aspirations of those who live in the Middle East, he also outlines a peaceful solution. We can plant seeds of hope that will transform not only the Middle East, but also our increasingly diverse neighborhoods at home. Discover the mind behind terror and how to oppose its grip.

What Is Visionary Fiction?

Visionary Fiction embraces spiritual and esoteric wisdom, often from ancient sources, and makes it relevant for our modern life. Gems of this spiritual wisdom are brought forth in story form so that readers can experience the wisdom from within themselves. Visionary fiction emphasizes the future and envisions humanity’s transition into evolved consciousness. While there is a strong theme, it in no way proselytizes or preaches.

Visionary is a tone as well as a genre. The ‘visionary’ element can technically be present in any genre and set in any time.

I’m a family man, teacher and storyteller who uses songs, films, photos, words and my voice to inspire, entertain and educate people (preferably all at the same time!).

I create all my music, films and writing in my lounge, in and among all my daughter’s toys.

Or, if I’m feeling especially adventurous and creative I might use the wider world around me; the block of flats I live in, the streets nearby, Battersea Park, iconic parts of London or anywhere I can get away with filming for free 🙂

I’m inspired when people push themselves to improve, no matter how big or small the goal, and I hope to inspire other people in a similar fashion; if I can help or even just encourage people to improve their skills or situation even a little, that makes me a very happy man!

I also train martial arts, play chess and love to travel.

Apex Predator w/Novelist Kelvin Kwa!

June 15, 2016

Kelvin Kwa PhotoMELBOURNE, Australia – After years of environmental destruction from warfare and exploitation of limited resources, melting icecaps are hardly humanity’s problem after military expeditions awaken a sleeping giant. “Apex Predator” by Kelvin Kwa is equal parts military techno-thriller and science fiction horror. Set in the very near future, the story follows the officers and crew of a United States nuclear submarine, a highly trained splinter unit of Navy SEALs, a Chinese Special Forces commander and a rogue freelance intelligence agent as they are entangled in a sinister covert operation that will see them hunted and betrayed by friend, enemy and monster alike.
“All of the things I have experienced contribute towards knowledge and imagination that I apply to my writing. I have a passion for a good story, and an epic story is best when shared,” Kwa said.
Though the book touches on issues such as technology, climate change, LGBT in military
service and scientific ethics, it’s first and foremost a thriller written for entertainment
purposes. “Apex Predator” is the book that Kwa wanted to write after spending a lifetime
invested in film, novels, comics and video games.

Talking Music, John of God, and Lyme Disease w/Gregg Kirk!

June 10, 2016

GreggThe Zen Engines is a band and music project headed by Gregg Kirk, who currently hails from the NYC metro area in the US. The content of their debut release “Obrigado” is the result of Kirk’s decade-long battle with Lyme Disease and his subsequent visit to John of God’s Casa de Dom Inácio de Loyola in Abadiania, Brazil. While there, Kirk experienced a major reduction of his symptoms and a spiritual awakening that gave fodder to almost every song on the release.

Originally from the Philadelphia area, Kirk got his start playing with Philly legend Robert Hazard shortly after Hazard penned “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” for Cyndi Lauper, and then Kirk went on to form his own bands, including The Killtoys and Shovelhead.

The latter group battered the Philly region with their post-grunge sound in the mid-90s and shared the stage with an impressive list of bands including Fugazi, fIREHOSE, Goo Goo Dolls, Godflesh and Dread Zeppelin. In 1996, A&M Records paid for them to record an album and then subsequently dropped them.

In 1999, Kirk moved to the NYC metro area where he built his own recording studio and formed a songwriting partnership with Austin, TX native Timothy Abbott. The two created The Figurados and released two critically-acclaimed CDs: “Divine Spirits, Holy Smoke” and “Lesson Two,” which the band supported by playing live in both the Austin and NYC areas.

When that project came to a halt in late 2010, Kirk embarked on his healing pilgrimage to Brazil and within days new songs began to emerge. Originally the focus of the tunes was self-healing, but Kirk soon realized that the music and vibrations could have a powerful effect on others and that has become the major focus of this release… to raise the vibrations and healing of anyone who hears these songs.

Vallere_AuthorPhoto_CostumeShopSeriesSomeone is dressed to kill in the debut Costume Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of the Material Witness mysteries.
No sooner does former magician’s assistant Margo Tamblyn return home to Proper City, Nevada, to run Disguise DeLimit, her family’s costume shop, than she gets her first big order. Wealthy nuisance Blitz Manners needs forty costumes for a detective-themed birthday bash. As for Blitz himself, his Sherlock Holmes is to die for—literally—when, in the middle of the festivities, Margo’s friend and party planner Ebony Welles is caught brandishing a carving knife over a very dead Blitz.

For Margo, clearing Ebony’s name is anything but elementary, especially after Ebony flees town. Now Margo is left to play real-life detective in a town full of masked motives, cloaked secrets, and veiled vendettas. But as she soon learns, even a killer disguise can’t hide a murderer in plain sight for long.

Godless - Living a Valuable Life beyond Beliefs w/ Author Jeff Rasley!

April 6, 2016

jeffBeliefs divide us, Values unite us.
The contemporary history of religious and political ideologies is bloody. From the Nazi Holocaust to beheadings by Islamic Jihadist terrorists, fanatics have divided the world into believers and heretics. Their propaganda has persuaded followers to torture and slaughter unbelievers. The cure for the pathology of fanatical beliefs is to discard religious doctrines and political ideologies. Let shared values be the guides of personal and policy decisions. Godless illuminates a way forward into a more harmonious and peaceful future. It offers a remedy for dysfunctional urban communities and to revive political participation in an age of apathy. It advocates a pragmatic middle way to counter both fundamentalist extremism and secular cynicism through community connectivity and activism.

Godless -- Living a Valuable Life beyond Beliefs begins as a memoir reaching back into the author's Puritan family history and the Salem witch trials. Rasley's worldwide travels, spiritual quest, and intellectual journey took him far from his small-town roots in the Presbyterian Church and Republican Party.

Jeff Rasley's undergraduate studies at the University of Chicago combined concentrations in Philosophy, Religion, and Politics. He received a J.D. from Indiana University and M.Div from Christian Theological Seminary. He teaches a class on philanthropy and nonprofit organizations at Butler University.

Embracing Our Envy w/ Author Josh Gressel!

March 11, 2016

head shot

Josh Gressel, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and certified Imago couples therapist in private practice in the San Francisco Bay area.  He is a student of Jewish mysticism and seeks to integrate spiritual and psychological truths in his work with clients.  His clinical work focuses on 1) working with religious adults on their psychological issues so they are freed up to worship God more freely; 2) working with couple’s from a spiritual perspective, and 3) working with men on turning their work into their vocations.

Description of book:  Envy is a universal emotion no one seems to have.  That is, while every language has a word for it, while it is reported through all of recorded history, for some reason no one is willing to talk about their own envy or even acknowledge it to themselves.  Josh Gressel wrote a book, Embracing Envy: Finding the Spiritual Treasure in Our Most Shameful Emotion, to explore why this is so and what we might learn about ourselves from exploring our envy more openly.  The basic premise of the book is that the emotion would not exist unless there is some positive reason for it.  The book explains what some of those reasons might be.
