“…military veterans need the most help to heal physically and emotionally”
For 20 years, I worked with military groups such as the Veterans Assistance Network as a sales consultant for computer products and phone equipment. During this time, I became aware that military veterans need the most help to heal physically and emotionally and I was gripped by a determination to do something meaningful for them.
With my background and experience using holistic, non-invasive techniques to heal illness, I founded Heaven & Earth Oasis, a nonprofit 501 (c) (3). The organization is dedicated to healing military personnel by applying an array of established alternative and complementary methods of treatment that work. Many of the methods we employ, such as Reiki, are now successfully incorporated by military organizations to help heal war veterans diagnosed with combat-related illnesses such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
I was diagnosed with a slow-growing pituitary tumor in 2005. Doctors offered two options: try to shrink it with medicine or undergo a dangerous operation. Medications did not shrink the tumor so I researched the best brain surgeons in the country and chose one in Los Angeles. The surgery was successful but not without complications. My lungs collapsed and, similar to symptoms of pneumonia, breathing became very difficult.
I searched and found a professional who could clear the energy in my solar plexus to help me breath comfortably. He was a Reiki Master in Ojai, California who also trained me to use Reiki on myself with excellent results. The inflammation in my solar plexus subsided then disappeared. I was breathing normally and now my lungs are clear.
After undergoing this physical transformation, in 2006 I became a certified Reiki Master. I have since become an energy healer trained and certified in several other therapies (Please see What We Do page).
My business partner, Chantal Benedict, is a professional practitioner in other healing arts (see bio). Over the years, we have helped hundreds of clients transition from a state of pain to recovery. We develop customized protocols that treat a variety of diseases: chronic headaches, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, gall stones even cancers. Alternative therapies prescribed for recovery may include diet and exercise programs and herbal supplements as well.
We have been treating military personnel free of charge with remarkable results not attained by traditional medicine alone. Heaven & Earth Oasis requires funding assistance to continue the work of healing wounded warriors holistically in a gentle, peaceful setting.
Guest, Randall Kirby
U.S. Army Veteran 1968-69 – Randall Kirby’s big break came creating the original sing/dance/act part of Jr. Babcock in the Broadway production of Mame with Angela Lansbury & Beatrice Arthur. He was also nominated “Best New Actor on Broadway” by the New York Drama Critics for his performance in the Broadway production of Me & Thee.
Randall’s TV credits 1960’s through 1990’s include co-staring on the TV series The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., Sally Fields’ boyfriend, Brett, on Gidget, Mary Tyler Moore, and into the 90’s on In Living Color. He’s also been featured in countless national TV commercials including winning a Clio Award for Remington Hair Blowers.
Back in the day, Randall took a shot at song writing and almost immediately he got his first 2 cuts with legendary Jerry Fuller who produced The Union Gap and O.C. Smith. As you’ll see in this show, he still loves writing songs.
Life Changes Show
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
