Conscious Living Radio is a program that explores alternative paradigms emerging in psychology, health, various sciences, community building, education, and various philosophies that challenge the modernist outlook and the institutional forms that express it.
Thematically it reflects the orientation of the new consciousness that emerged out of the 60s counterculture and has been growing ever since. It is a consciousness that views the need for profound social transformation, recognizing that personal transformation is integral to that. It will give voice to those searching to create a new culture, one that embodies different values than the consumerist ones that dominate Western, modern society. They are values that ultimately can be defined as being spiritual as opposed to material.
The format consists primarily of interviews, mostly live, some pre-recorded, with various authors, teachers, workshop facilitators, theorists and therapists, both local and visiting. Music is used only for transitional purposes. There is a small segment devoted to some interesting news, inspirational quotes and informational tidbits as a break at the half hour, beginning or end.
