What is Peace Brain?  Peace Brain is the synergistic connection between our mental and emotional bodies – blending the electrical power of the mind with the magnetic force of the heart. 

Listen and explore how to create unity worldwide, as we blend science and metaphysics, open our hearts and minds to the possibilities of Peace on Earth, and create the life we are each destined for.

Featured guests range from angel communicators to zoologists and everything in between. Now here is your host Dr. Gail Lash!

GAIL: Welcome to The Peace Brain Show! This is your Host, Dr. Gail Lash and I’m happy to have you here today!

Today we have a wonderful story of collaboration and friendship to share, and the powerful topic of interfaith unity to discuss – announcing an event that I hope all of you can attend, if you are in the Atlanta GA area. We will also have our transformative Peace Brain meditation at the end of the show – so be sure to stay tuned!

But first, as always, I want to open the show with a quote. This quote is from ‘Abdu’l-Baha, son of the Founder of the Baha’i Faith:

“Cleanse ye your eyes, so that ye behold no man as different from yourselves. See ye no strangers; rather see all men as friends, for love and unity come hard when ye fix your gaze on otherness. And in this new and wondrous age, the Holy Writings say that we must be at one with every people; that we must see neither harshness nor injustice, neither malevolence, nor hostility, nor hate, but rather turn our eyes toward the heaven of ancient glory. For each of the creatures is a sign of God, and it was by the grace of the Lord and His power that each did step into the world; therefore they are not strangers, but in the family; not aliens, but friends, and to be treated as such.”

03 minutes

This quote represents unity…. Tourism for peace – what religion is supposed to encourage. The Golden Rule is in every religion.

Today’s show is about unity of humanity, and the commonality between Faiths, and how we can work together to bring a unified peace onto the planet. Today you will hear some examples of how to turn on your Peace Brain, and make world peace actually happen!

Event at Unity North Atlanta – introduce it briefly.

06 minutes

INTRODUCE GUESTS – Today we have Rev. Richard Burdick, Senior Minister of Unity North Atlanta in Atlanta GA, and Dr. Iraj Khodadoost, member of the Baha’i Faith.

GUEST BIOS

Rev. Richard Burdick:

Rev. Richard Burdick is the Senior Minister at Unity North Atlanta. As a minister, teacher and musician he is passionate about community building, Interfaith cooperation and trans-denominational spirituality. Richard began his career in church work as a Music and Youth Minister in California and Oregon. These early experiences afforded him access to some of the brightest minds in the New Thought movement and showed him how to bring people into a deeper awareness of their spiritual nature while at the same time how to build growing spiritual communities.

Rev. Burdick brought his love of ministry and community building to Marietta, GA where he became the Assoc. Minister and Music Director for Unity Christ Church. U.C.C. doubled in size under his leadership. Later he was hired as the Youth Minster and Music Director for Unity North Atlanta Church where he tripled the size of the youth program. Here he completed his Licensed Unity Teacher training and was promoted to the position of Asst. Minister. In 2011, Rev. Burdick was contracted to be Unity North’s Spiritual Leader and it has become a growing and thriving ministry under his leadership.

Richard has continued his Unity education over the last 6 years in the Field Licensing Program and was ordained in March of 2017. He values greatly his partnership of 25+ years with his wife Suzie and together they not only serve Unity North but 7 children and 16 grandchildren.

Dr. Iraj Khodadoost:

I have been a Baha'i all my life. 

I was a member of the Teaching and Pioneering Committee for the NSA of Iran in 1960's and early 70's. 

I spent sometime travel-teaching in Nigeria in 1971. 

I have a Master's degree in Accounting and another in Industrial Management. 

My doctorate is in the area of Public Administration with a certificate in Global Policy Studies. 

I was chief accountant and office manager for several multinational firms - 1964 to 1974. 

I taught accounting at several universities (university of Georgia, Southern Missouri State university, and Clemson university) from 1977 until 2006. 

I try to practice the Baha'i principle of "associating with people of all faiths in a spirit of amity and concord" and continue to strengthen my bond of friendship with people of all faiths. 

I has begun teaching two courses at Elm college (an affiliate of the First Methodist Church of Marietta) beginning on 9/11/2018. The two courses are: the Hidden Words of Baha'u'llah and Reflections on the Life of the Spirit (Ruhi Book One).

END Description of Show:

What is Peace Brain? Peace Brain is a term that Dr. Gail Lash created to indicate a peaceful mind, body, spirit and world. Peace Brain is the synergistic connection between our mental and emotional bodies – the blending of the electrical power of the mind with the magnetic force of the heart. We humans cannot exercise our complete capabilities and innate gifts to manifest true Peace On Earth unless our Peace Brain is engaged, with these biological and spiritual centers working as one. Unity through Diversity is the goal.

Topics of Peace span the complete continuum of Science and Spirit – and so does The Peace Brain Show!  Listen and explore scientific and metaphysical concepts related to the human condition, animals and Nature, our relationship to universal energy and implementations of Peace worldwide with your Host, Dr. Gail Lash!

Drawing on her multifaceted background, Dr. Gail features guests who are Zoo and Aquarium leaders, Animal conservation partners, Community facilitators, Social justice organizations promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, National park operators, Metaphysicians, Energy healers, Angel workers, Animal communicators, and much more – all imparting their practical wisdom on how we each can create a world of Peace, Love, Justice and Beauty – manifesting “As Above So Below”.

From this, envision a map of the Earth being populated with “Peace Parks” (markers and practices by these organizations and grassroots individuals) that when linked create Peace Trails around the world!  It is practical; it is powerful; it is possible!

The show is a 55-minute format.  It begins with an opening quote and monologue segment by Dr. Gail, introducing the Peace topic for that show. This is followed by a 35 to 45-minute conversational interview with an amazing guest of note – done in the spirit of friendship, laughter, respect, contemplation and building community.  The show ends with a Peace Brain Meditation, in which Dr. Gail enables you to practice turning on and tuning into your Peace Brain!  Join us!
