The People Speak, December 8, 2015
The People Speak with Sophia Rae and special guest Chris Flisher
CHRIS FLISHER is a nationally recognized astrologer, and is an accomplished artist, teacher, speaker, writer, and radio host. In an effort to fuse his skills together, Chris also draws on his deep knowledge of astrology to create individual soul maps as well as healing mandalas. Astrology provides direct insight into the characteristics of the person, while the spiritual art of the mandala reflects the tangible experience of the healing soul. Using these time-tested tools Chris is able to guide people towards fulfilling their true purpose. Here are some recent Testimonials from clients.
Chris sees astrology and the mandala as complementary tools, which together bring about greater understanding of the Self and provide guidance and optimism for challenging and changing times. His desire to share this unique approach led him to launch “Turning of the Wheel” in September of 2007, an online radio show discussing art, astrology and spiritual adventure.
Chris is a long-standing member of the National Council for Geocosmic Research and contributes a weekly astrology column for several news publications and produces weekly astrology videos that are also available each week via YouTube. Chris has been a weekly contributing radio host of Turning Of The Wheel which is celebrating its seventh year of continuous broadcasting. He is always available for private astrology consultations.
An artist for our times, Chris’ work is regularly shown in galleries, cafes, and public art events in and around New England. He was selected by the U.S. Department of State, Arts In Embassies program to represent the United States in the embassy in Praia, Cape Verde where his artwork is on loan through 2015. He traveled to Cape Verde as a guest of the US ambassador in the summer of 2013 to host workshops for three orphanges in Cape Verde. He also participated in an international symposium on the mandala in Rome and exhibited in the highly-acclaimed Pool Art Fair in New York City. He also creates custom-commissioned art based on the unique characteristics of the birth chart, which are one-of-a-kind reflections of an individual's uniqueness.
Additionally, his art has been licensed by publishers, art skins, puzzles and more. Chris also teaches classes and workshops, and is available for speaking engagements, radio interviews, and live astrology readings.
Chris is an avid music writer and published poet. Chris was formerly the co-host of two nationally-syndicated radio talk shows, both of which focused on alternative methods for facing the challenges of life, love, and evolving. He is currently on the docent staff at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum and a regular contributor to numerous community adult education programs where he teaches both astrology and the art of the mandala.
The People Speak has evolved over the years with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts.
We are a 55 minute show airing every other Sunday between 5-6pm Pacific/8-9pm Eastern. The show features a guest interview from any number of realms of interest (entertainment, science, philosophy, healing, spirituality, activism, politics, literature, etc.).
The guests share their stories, lives, strategies, books, philosophy, films, music, or whatever it is they use as a vehicle for making a difference for the better.
The radio show name, The People Speak, is based on the idea of allowing our audience - the People - a chance to interact with the guests during the hour, and we take phone or text questions from them during the interview.
Past guests include such notables as Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Howard Zinn, Nobel Laureates Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi, Kathryn Najimy, Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Horton, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, George Galloway, Roseanne Barr, Ed Asner, Chevy Chase, as well as various reps from Amnesty International, UN World Food Programme, and many others.
