“On the Front Porch with Ami Chen: Spiritual Dialogues for the 21st Century.”

Ami Chen

Emerging from the popular weekly radio show, “A New Way to Handle Absolutely Everything,” co-host Ami Chen takes flight with her very own show on essential spiritual principles that cross the boundaries of religion, self-help, psychology and all spiritual traditions.

For over a decade, Ami has taught principles of innate mental health and resiliency in jail settings, community settings, schools, and with youth in juvenile hall and court schools. This work led to her initiation of the National Community Resiliency Project, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and sponsored by her non-profit, the Center for Sustainable Change.

The author of the book for youth, “The Spark Inside,” Ami was an award-winning investigative journalist for many years. Her studies of various forms of spirituality led her to conclude that “the Truth is everywhere.” On the Front Porch will feature Ami Chen, and guests who speak to the “Three Principles of Mind, Consciousness and Thought,” first shared by Sydney Banks … and the mental health and wisdom that lie within; as well as the most enlightened authors and speakers of our day, whose work is to wake up humanity. Come sit “on the front porch” with teachers from many backgrounds, and with ordinary, everyday people, who have found that freedom and Truth, as formlessness and within ALL form, is our essential nature as human beings.

“It is no good to wait for someone else to awaken, so that all will be taken care of. It is you the world is waiting for. Not just for your children, but for all children, all neighborhoods everywhere. It is up to you.” --Gangaji

Topics will include: a new psychology and the “Three Principles,” parenting, relationships, education, community, work life and, always, the constant nowness and presence of pure Consciousness, of mental health and well-being in us all.
Join Ami Chen “On the Front Porch,” the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month, at 10 am Pacific/1pm Eastern. Podcast will also be available for free download on iTunes and elsewhere. Call-in’s welcome!
