Soul Talk Radio

A Radio Series with Jonathan Hooton

Soul Talk is a 1 hour internet radio show that explores the qualities of the soul that contribute to a purposeful and meaningful life, a life moved by a passion that serves others, often emerging from dark or challenging times. These qualities heal rigid black and white stances, such as perpetrator/victim, love/hate, love/fear, and us/them prejudice. As the listener you will have an opportunity to open to deeper and wider perspectives that are more flexible and inclusive.

My desire is to talk with people who are exploring these aspects of life and have found different solutions and understandings for these polarized stances and take a soul-centered approach to promote healing; with people who promote a cooperative, consensual approach, who bring a soul awareness into their businesses and relationships. This is a spirituality that is grounded in embodied living.

My vision for each show is collaborative. Questions and conversation will focus around how my guests find purpose and meaning in what they do, what is their passion, how it is of service to a greater whole and how they see their work supporting empowerment, love, and inclusiveness in those they serve; how their work is part of healing one or more of the polarities mentioned above.

Some of the topics for the show and the dualities that we get invested include:

  • Mind-body split manifested as an identification with our thinking - many traditions have treated the body as an impediment to spiritual awareness, or have controlled people by enforcing this split with fear of bodily pain (e.g. torture, corporal punishment).

  • Head-heart: Cree saying: “The longest journey, is the shortest distance: from the head to the heart.” The intelligence of the heart.

  • Humanity-nature split expressed as a belief that humanity is separate from nature, that we can use the earth’s gifts with impunity, without respect. The current trend in organic farming and gardening and respectful relationship with animals is a world-wide move to reverse this attitude.

  • Us-them, victim-perpetrator splits acted out in racial and tribal prejudice and revealed at a gross level in, for example, genocides, the Black American experience, the Native American experience, the “Troubles” in Northern Ireland.

  • Family: the split between parent and child, the generation gap, ancestral entanglements, the family soul.

  • Life-death: the current split in addressing and embracing death in our “Western” culture.

  • Male-female: gender prejudice.

  • Aboriginal and restorative justice: non-judgmental and inclusive processes of bringing healing to the victim, perpetrator and the community – seeing the crime as a symptom of an unbalanced community.

  • Child development and education: the origin of splitting from an authentic self in early development through family, culture, and educational practices. The role/place of spirituality in education.
