Dr Kokayi discusses food safety with JD Hanson of the Center for Food Safely. Dr Kokayi looks at the effect of corporations being given the right to patent living organisms. The US patent office has patented human , animal, and plant genes, and entire animals. By patenting a plant and the pollen from that plant blows in your field you can be sued for having these genetically engineered products on your property. Genetically engineered companies are buying up all of the world’s seeds. Moreover these seeds are programmed to need the pesticides being produced by theses multinationals. The book Your Right to Know focuses on the crisis in finding healthy food and looks at the corporate superstructure in detail. Progress is being made in companies not buying milk from cows on recombinant growth hormone (cows on crack).

This interview explores the work of Dr Jonathan Ellerby. For twenty years he has looked at spiritual traditions from more than forty different cultures around the world.. His book Return to the Sacred.categorizes the spiritual terrain and looks at the different spiritual paths that are available for people to take. The categorization of these paths helps us to get an idea of our own spiritual personality and which path would be most suited for an individual. His book explores the twelve master paths. Just like people prefer different kinds of music and clothes there are certain spiritual practices that are more suited for us because of our aptitudes. Within these twelve paths there are four categories that revolve around the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical dynamics. Some of us are mental and want to study written works while some of us need a more of an emotional connection. There are those of us who need movement and can’t wait to
get up and dance and move. And there are the soul type who crave a direct experience of the divine and tend to be more extreme in their practices with fasting and pilgrimages.
