    'Humanity's Team' - The Civil Rights Movement for the Soul

    Was as sound archive available from Mon 8th August - Mon 5th September on www.209radio.co.uk. The grassroots Spiritual movement 'Humanity's Team' acknowledges that all truth resides within each individual. They posit sole authority for the truth of who we really are and who God is, in every individual human being. 'HT' endeavors to make no human being or belief system wrong.' HT' invites each human being, religion, and culture to expand their belief systems to include the New Spirituality. This New Spirituality holds that we are all One.

    logo 'Humanity's Team' 'HT' was founded only 2 years ago and is now already a worldwide support network of kindred spirits with groups meeting up regularly in over 50 countries world wide and approximately 20 groups in the UK. They have a deep desire for the world to be a more loving and compassionate place to be in.
    'HT' recognises that there are many paths to God and embrace people from all religious backgrounds. They recognise that the only way to make a positive difference in the world is to first connect with our own hearts individually and then moving out from there, spreading that love and compassion out into the world. They meet regularly to support each other in living the New Spirituality. Drawing from a wide variety of inspirational literature, of which 'Conversations With God' by Neale Donald Walsch is included, the intention is to take the wisdom in the books and live it fully and joyfully.

      David, Carla & Dee
from Humanities Team
    David, Carla & Dee from Humanity's Team London
    guests at 209radio studio Cambridge
    Living the New Spirituality means seeing that we are all connected and interdependent. It means understanding that we are the source of love and we don't need to look outside of ourselves for it.
    Small groups meet up in communities and work on two main areas: "Beingness" and "Doingness".

    'HT' are holding a "What on Earth does God want?" Day in September, (based on Neale Donald Walsch's new book: "What God Wants").

    Sun 3 April '05: Ghosts in Cambridge? With "Mysterious Worlds" Cambridge

    Special Guests today are "Mysterious Worlds", based in South Cambridgeshire, a group of dedicated investigators with an open minded approach to the Paranormal. See their web site at www.mysterious-worlds.com

    - Could ghosts be real in our modern time?
    - Are they just phantasie, or can it be proven that ghosts exist?
    - What is the spiritual explanation of ghosts or lost souls?

    Today's guests from 'Mysterious Worlds' are: Chris Mogg, Kevin Cornwell &Steve Nicholls.
    The group consists of Mediums; Sensitives and Skeptics, giving a balance to the investigations we carry out. They investigate all aspects of the Paranormal by visiting various locations that are thought to have paranormal activities and, using the senses of thier mediums and carrying out various tests, they compile a report of the findings. The mediums have no prior knowledge of the locations visited so that they cannot be swayed by external information. This is further enhanced by ensuring that the investigating team includes a mixture of technical and skeptical members who question the validity of the mediums findings and seek out alternative confirmations of paranormal activity such as temperature changes. As a professional organization they feel it is paramount that all investigations are carried out with an open mind.

    Subjects mentioned in this show are Sawston Hall, their Wandlebury Ring & Hill Fort Investigation, The Bewitched House Letter, the nature of ghosts, details of how they investigate, what technical aids they use and what some sensitive people can see, hear, smell etc.
    Cambridge Abbey House, near Abbey Church / Newmarket Road and other places still need to be investigated....
    PS: in Huntingdon is another similar group - see: www.huntsghosthuntersparanormalgroup.moonfruit.com

    Was available as sound archive from Mon 31st Jan.'05 - Mon 28 Feb. on www.209radio.co.uk.
    Jan is a Quaker (from Cambridge Hartington Grove Meeting, like Ralph). He has dedicated a lot of his time talking with and writing to prisoners, especially to some death row in America. He is a book editor (see his new home page at www.fablesandlegends.co.uk. He was Quaker prison minister at Littlehey prison near Huntingdon / St. Neots for 5 years. Jan mentions experiences from prisoners, comparable to a mystic "near death experience" and others who experienced real changes for the better during their imprisonment. Jan founded the now international 'LifeLines' organisation (now 1,700 members), who organises writing letters to prisoners on death row.
    "Look into the face of death - and you discover what life is about." (Ralph)

    "New Beginnings" - with Ginnah, from Sun 16th Jan.'05
    re-broadcast Sun 18th Sept.'05, 12-1pm

    Was available as sound archive from Mon 17th Jan. - Mon 31st Jan. '05. on www.209radio.co.uk.
    Gina lives in Cambridge-Chesterton and has made a plan how we can change our lives, about Buddhist chanting, psychic parties and more.
    In the beginning we reflect about the positive side of the tsunami catastrophe. Very inspiring. More below.

    Ginnah about herself:
    "The path to knowledge is through diversity of experience and the translation we give it. Buddhist philosophy has been a great infulence in my understanding of life puzzles. I have explored the frontiers of meditation through Buddhist chanting and in the silence of Brahma Kumaris. I have spent time with the followers of Sri Chinmoy and delved into devotion through Islam. I attended the development circle at the Spiritualist Church training in mediumship and pyschic senses. Most recently I have been practising Primordial Sound Meditation and Visualisation through Self Hypnosis. All these practises generate a different energy and lead you to engage with the sacred and the worldly - in a different way.

    "So what is the point of this spiritual and philosophical exploration? For any practise to be useful it must be tested and forged in the fire of lifes challenges. This is where the 'real' work takes place - in our daily life.

    "There are no divisions between my work or family life and the time I spend in the pursuit of self knowledge all are branches on the tree of life and support each other.

    "My path now is to help others forge connections between the material world of daily life and the spiritual or mystic journey. In truth they are one; it is only in our attitude that we separate and compartmentalise them. Duality is an illusion made possible only by denial of the interconnectedness that truly exsists beneath the surface of all things. It is by the mixing of our being and our doing that we understand the greater picture and begin to take responsibility for our own part in the creation of our experience and of our life.

    "Once we begin to work with the principles that are governing our thoughts, actions and outcomes on a spiritual and psychological level we become masters of our own destiny. (in as much as any one can) We are able to draw to us the elements in our physical world which will progress our spiritual development and so we come full circle.

    "To facilitate this further I am launching a new endeavour I have named 'Seeds Of Light'. "
    "The Truth is One , but the Teachers are many, for each has a different lesson to impart." (Srimad Bhagaratam)
