Discovering Your Destiny with Human Design with Chetan Parkyn

Join us Thursday, December 8th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guest Chetan Parkyn. 

Chetan Parkyn
Have you ever stopped to consider what special, unique qualities you have to offer the world — what it is that comes naturally to you and through you?

According to Chetan Parkyn, just like the storyline of a book, or the theme music to a movie, there is a unique, consistent and recognizable theme, or undercurrent, to your entire lifetime. It is your song, your part in the symphony of life, and only you can play it.

An expert on Human Design, and the author of the first major book on the subject, Chetan Parkyn says that knowing and accepting your particular Life Theme is truly transformative. Embodying this awareness gives you reassurance and clarification about your life purpose. It is like when the penny drops, or the light bulb goes on, and you just ‘get it.’ You will no longer have to deal with misplaced expectations held over you by others, nor will you have to wonder why someone else is being moved to live in completely different ways than yourself, because you will understand the secret essence of what quietly moves you through life, and how to reach directly into the source of your own fulfillment.

This week, Chetan Parkyn joins Sandie to discuss his latest work, The Book of Destinies: Discover the Life you Were Born to Live, which reveals the final step in the Human Design system – 192 variations of Life Themes, which reveal to us the intended storyline of our lives.

Says, Parkyn, “Like the coding in your genetics, your Life Theme is something that resonates within your whole being, on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. When you attune your awareness to your Life Theme, you will find it completely natural to embrace. You will finally understand your life’s purpose and journey, and once you know your own Life Theme you will be fascinated to learn the Themes of everyone in your life.

Chetan Parkyn is the author of the first major book on the subject, “Human Design, Discover the Person You Were Born to Be”, now in 11 languages, and has conducted over 5000 Human Design readings for people across the globe.

His latest book, “The Book of Destinies, Discover the Life You Were Born To Live.” which took 20 years to create, describes in depth, each of the 192 different Life Themes available for our life on Earth. Understanding your own very particular Life brings a personal awakening that is deeply transforming.

Chetan Park has traveled extensively throughout the world, and spent several years meditating with the enlightened mystic, Osho, who assisted him to recognize and expand on his own gifts — that of helping people develop self-knowledge.

Together with his wife and partner, Carola Eastwood, a gifted Reader and Life and Business Success Coach, Chetan offers readings, mentorship and multiple classes in Human Design for those who wish to study it at any level.

Living Sensationally – How Understanding Our Senses Can Transform Our Relationships And Our Life with Prof. Winnie Dunn

Join us Thursday, November 24th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guest Prof. Winnie Dunn. 

What great synchronicity that this show will be airing at a time when many people are together with family and may need a bit of understanding about why some of their family members behave the way they do!

Prof. Winnie Dunn

We all want to live a satisfying life, but what that means to you may be quite different than what it means to others in your life.

For example, how do you feel when you bite into a pear…wear a feather boa…stand in a noisy auditorium…or walk past a perfume counter in a department store? Some people love the grainy texture of a pear, while others shudder at the idea of this texture in their mouths. Touching a feather boa might feel luxurious and sensual to you, while others will bristle at the idea of all those feathers brushing on the skin. And strong scents or noisy, busy environments will energize some people, and overwhelm others.

Now imagine the tension and stress it could cause to your relationship if your partner needed to wake up to to bright lights, loud music, and the aroma of strong coffee to psyche them up for the day, while you required a slow, calm awakening with silence, dim lighting, and zero environmental stimulation to function properly.

We rarely think about it, but we all have our own pattern of responding to everyday experiences such as these, and they can make or break our day. In her eye-opening book, Living Sensationally: Understanding Your Senses, Prof. Winnie Dunn explains how understanding our sensory profile and those of our children, colleagues and loved ones can not only help us understand our own and others’ behavior and choices but can also help eliminate misunderstandings, tension and stress that may be affecting our relationships at home and work.

Join Sandie and Dr. Dunn as they discuss:
•   The Four Major sensory types – Seeker, a Bystander, and Avoider or a Sensor
•   How to discover your own pattern and those of your friends, children and colleagues and loved ones
•   How to eliminate misunderstanding, anxiety and tension in your relationships with family members, children and colleagues
•   How you can use this information to benefit your business or home life, or to pick the right kind of clothing, job and home and create a more harmonious and satisfying life

Dr. Dunn is Professor and Chair of the Department of Occupational Therapy Education at the University of Kansas. A member of the Academy of Research for the American Occupational Therapy Foundation, she is an internationally known expert for her studies about sensory processing in everyday life. She has published more than 100 research articles, book chapters and books, and has spoken around the world about her work, and is the author/ coauthor of all of the Sensory Profile measures, which capture people’s responses to sensory events in everyday life; these assessments have been translated into dozens of languages and are used for both professional practice and in research programs.

Her eye-opening book Living Sensationally – Understanding Your Senses, has been featured in several magazines including Time magazine, Cosmopolitan, The London Times newspaper, and on Canadian Public Radio.

Buddha’s Diet: The Ancient Art Of Losing Weight Without Losing Your Mind With Dan Zigmond And Tara Cottrell

Join us Thursday, November 3rd, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guests Dan Zsigmond and Tara Cottrell. 

There’s a lot we don’t know about the Buddha. For one, the real Buddha as thin. And before he became the “Enlightened One,” he was a pampered prince named Siddhartha. He tried starving himself in his quest for inner peace, but found that extremes brought him no closer to enlightenment. Instead, he sought a “middle way” between unhealthy overindulgence and unrealistic abstinence. The instructions he gave his monks about eating more than 2,500 years ago were surprisingly simple.

Fast forward to today. Cutting Edge scientific research tells us something Buddha knew all along; it’s not what you eat, but when you eat that’s most important. You don’t need to follow the latest fads or give up your favorite foods. You just need to remember a few guidelines that Buddha provided – guidelines that, believe it or not, will help you lose weight, feel better, and stop obsessing about food.

Join Sandie Sedgbeer and guests Dan Zigmond and Tara Cottrell as they discuss:

*   Buddha’s diet – what is it, and why is it so successful?
*   How changing your eating clock is an ancient technique for wellness that Buddha recommended thousands of years ago.
*   How to shut down emotional eating by separating the emotion from the food choice
*   How changing your eating clock and aligning it with your circadian rhythm can bring balance and weight loss
*   and more…

The Bosnian Pyramids Revealed with Dr. Sam Osmanagich

Join us Thursday, October 27th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guest Dr. Sam Osmanagich. 

Dr. Sam Osmanagich
According to the latest evidence, everything we thought we knew about pyramids and the ancient civilizations that built them is wrong. In 2005, anthropology professor “Dr. Sam” Osmanagich discovered the first pyramids on European soil—the lost pyramids of Bosnia. After many thousands of hours of archaeological digging, sample testing, radiocarbon dating and several scientific conferences, this discovery shows that our view of the ancient past needs to be changed. 

The Bosnian Pyramids are the biggest and oldest pyramidal structures on the planet. Despite obstacles from cultural, media and political establishments, this project has grown to be the most active archaeological site anywhere, and yet, many well-known names in the archeological community still refuse to acknowledge that the Bosnian Pyramids are real. What are they afraid of?

Dr. Semir Osmanagich joins Sandie to discuss the Bosnian Pyramids, and share the riveting evidence he’s uncovered about their age, purpose and potential healing power.

Biomimicry – What We Can Learn From Nature Can Save Our World with Janine M. Benyus

Join us Thursday, October 13th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guest Janine Benyus. 

Janine Benyus

Nature is far more wondrous that we think – in fact, as scientists across the globe are proving, the natural world is full of hidden design clues that can save our world. Biomimicry is a revolutionary new science that analyzes nature’s best ideas – spider silk and prairie grass, seashells and brain cells – and adapts them for human use. In her seminal book, Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, science writer Janine Benyus reveals how nature is offering real solutions to human design challenges that can help us save our world– from creating toxin-free materials, to developing waste-free products and systems, to building entire cities that function like Redwood forests.

Topics will include:
* What leaves can teach us about gathering energy
* What spiders can teach us about weaving fibers
* What chimps can teach us about healing ourselves
* And much more…

JANINE BENYUS is a biologist, author, innovation consultant, and self-proclaimed “nature nerd.” In her 1997 book, Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature, she names an emerging discipline that emulates nature’s designs and processes (e.g., solar cells that mimic leaves) to create a healthier, more sustainable planet. Since the book’s release, Janine has evolved the practice of biomimicry, speaking around the world about what we can learn from the genius that surrounds us.

In 1998, Janine co-founded the world’s first bio-inspired consultancy, Biomimicry 3.8 (formerly the Biomimicry Guild), bringing nature’s sustainable designs to 250+ clients including Boeing, Colgate-Palmolive, Nike, General Electric, Herman Miller, HOK architects, IDEO, Interface, Natura, Procter and Gamble, Levi’s, Kohler, and General Mills.

In 2006, she co-founded the Biomimicry Institute, a non-profit dedicated to making biology a natural part of the design process. The Institute hosts annual global biomimicry design challenges on massive sustainability problems, mobilizing tens of thousands of students and practitioners through the Global Biomimicry Network to solve those challenges, and providing those practitioners with the world’s most comprehensive biomimicry inspiration database, AskNature, to use as a starting place.
