These meditations are designed to help you align your thoughts and words with what you desire to bring forth in your life. When we speak these positive truths, we connect with that divine spark within us – and in doing so, we come face to face with God.
Today we will discuss what makes us forgive someone for something they did or we think they did and what is “unforgivable” in our minds? We’ll be talking about Dottie Sandusky, wife of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, recently convicted of raping and molesting a number of children in their home. We’ll also talk about Gary Flakes who served more than 12 years for the shotgun slayings of two teenagers and now is a motivational speaker and mentor to inner city youth. Where do we want to believe people are good or can change, and where are we skeptical – and why – and how does this contribute to conflict in the world?
On this episode of Conflict Free Zone, we discuss the parents of murdered children and parents of children that murder, the struggle with forgiving, and the process by which some find forgiveness for self and others. My special guest today is Chris Edwin Dahl, co-leader of the MN Hope Chapter of Parents of Murdered Children, whose son was shot and killed just 11 days after his 20th birthday.
Special guest and entertainer, Faith Rivera joins us on the Conflict Free Zone to talk about what led her to use music to promote peace; what inspires her to create music; how she brings herself back to centered-space when she’s feeling overwhelmed (as a new mother, wife and back on the road touring again while creating new albums!); and the most powerful moment where her music has been used to create or restore peace and harmony.
Dr. Becky Bailey, creator of Conscious Discipline and founder of Loving Guidance joins us to share skills we can use to empower our children (and ourselves!) to not just walk away from a conflict/fight, but to do so in ways that make us feel stronger…plus how a school fight gone awry is relevant to the current no-tolerance policies in our school systems and how we can use that to transform ourselves when we feel we’ve run out of options with “the system.”
On today’s episode, we’re joined by sports attorney and super-agent Leigh Steinberg as he talks with me about the importance of cultivating values that you bring to your professional life as well as your personal life; questions to ask yourself as you’re figuring out what’s really important to you as you come to a negotiation table; how to stay present and in the game during a long, drawn-out negotiation; how to discover what the other party truly values and how you can meet their desires; how to hear about your weaknesses without losing your temper; and how to bounce back when a negotiation reaches an impasse or falls apart, as it did recently in his own personal life.
Ani Pathik Law and I will be taking your calls LIVE and talking about how we’re teaching our children how to generate inner conflict and what we can do to nip that in the bud…plus how a new trend toward passive aggressive road rage subconsciously keeping us stuck in conflict..and how to transform our thoughts to generate peace.

Talking with Scott Rogers, the director of the Institute for Mindfulness Studies in Miami about how to use mindfulness practices to respond rather than react to conflict, reduce anxiety when it comes up and even before it occurs, and come from a place of peace no matter how challenging the person or situation before you.

This technique has been successfully used by lawyers, health care providers, therapists, parents and even people trying to lose weight!
