    [Voice Rising Radio Show] Stephen G. Post - On Forgetting to Remember and Other Ordinary Miracles
    FREE ARCHIVE

    Memory holds the entire universe and everything we have ever encountered in life. Graceful synchronicities abound—thread by thread, stitch by stitch, -step by step, we make our way. The landscapes of our heart are infinite and undefinable. We are a part of a mystery. Nobody really knows what biographical memory is. Is it physical or metaphysical? Perhaps like voice, it is both. Our voice seeks connection, and frequency is our link. Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and best-selling author Stephen G. Post in a heartfelt conversation on VOICE memory, music, synchronicity, love, and the hidden mystery of human connectedness. What role does our voice play in memory formation and memory loss? What role do stories play in our inter-connectedness? Listen in as Kara and Stephen talk about his new book God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness. Bring your voice. Bring your questions.
    For over twenty years, Stephen G Post, Ph.D., has spread the science of giving and commitment to the greater good across the globe. He lives and teaches the uplifting perennial message that we become our fullest selves by giving to others. The bestselling lead author of Why Good Things Happen to Good People: How to Live a Longer, Happier Life by the Simple Act of Giving, Post is the founder and president (2000) of the Institute for Research on Unlimited Love (www.unlimitedloveinstitute.org), and the director (2008) of the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics at Stony Brook University in New York.
