Beverly Hamilton

 

Beverly was the very first host on Sedona Talk Radio.  Her energy and vitality created the perfect beginning.  Beverly did a number of shows and then has taken a hiatus to handle some personal issues.  We hope that Beverly will join us again.

Beverly is currently working with her Agent to bring her blog, Dementia - Closer To God, to print.  We look forward to its publishing and to having Beverly return to broadcast more shows.

About The Show

A Course in Miracles and Other Fun Things explores a spectrum of experiences that can be woven into the fabric of a ACIM in a casual, conversational format. The show is just another reminder of a path, though paved in suffering, can be tread lightly and with a little laughter, as we peek behind the illusory curtain shielding Truth.

To preface the following, my early and long association with the founders of the CIM does not make me an expert. I met Judith Skutch and Jerry Jampolsky in 1974 in the SF Bay Area. In 1975, Judy brought us the Course in Miracles, a set of books she had just received from Helen Schucman, the reluctant 'scribe' of these books and her associate, Bill Thetford, both professors at Columbia University. Helen and Bill soon followed to meet people and discuss the Course. For more detail of their history, go to www.acim.org.

From that time to the present, I quietly studied the Course and struggled with practicing the basics, like Forgiveness. My path has been one of unraveling the persona I thought I had so brilliantly created, using laughter and occasional bouts of sanity.

 

About Beverly

I earned two college degrees so long ago there's not a thing I  can remember worth sharing.  My greatest lessons came from children who had been labeled "emotionally disturbed", "retarded", "handicapped" -- in other words, judged less than perfect.  This superficial identity affected their perception of the world and defined their experience.  As a therapist/teacher/guide, I wanted them to recognize and reflect their spirit and learn to laugh, something they had forgotten to do.  With that recognition, they began to love and accept themselves.  That was their first step in knowing the truth of who they are.

The profound lessons I learned from these children plus being very curious about life in general, I compiled my years of written thoughts into a book called Grains of Sand.  It was produced in 1975 and in a simple form, says "we come here looking for love, forgetting we are love".  A short time later I was given one of the first copies of the Course in Miracles.

I had met Jerry Jampolsky and Judy Skutch in 1973.  In 1975, Judy brought the Course in Miracles to the SF Bay Area where I was living.  Helen Schucman, the scribe of the CIM, Bill Thetford, and Ken Wapnick soon followed.  No one knew this was the beginning of a world wide phenomenon.
Having met and observed this small group who had incredible integrity, any concerns about the validity of what had been written, vanished.

Grains of Sand by Beverly Hamilton

 

Grains of Sand by Beverly Hamilton

In simple verse, this beautiful 3 part book chronicles our path of Identity from Spiritual Beings to our painfully acquired identity in a world of form and limitation.  To survive this shock of separation, we create a false identity.  This separation from our spirit is our real "Death".  By unmasking this self-made impostor, we begin the journey home, not by dying, but by waking up.

Whoever You Are You Are Not Who You Think You Are

We struggle with the question of Identity from the time we begin to perceive ourselves as separate entities. The realization of being separate engenders fear, which then becomes the cornerstone of our survival mechanism. The Course addresses the unraveling of this structure that is called Ego. This journey unmasks the source of our pain while leading us to Freedom. Join in to learn more about this amazing process.

The International Center for Attitudinal Healing

The International Center for Attitudinal Healing helps people support one another to overcome the conflict, fear, and feelings of isolation that can accompany a life crisis, and encourages a choice for peace of mind.
The Center for Attitudinal Healing uses an empathic Peer Support model through which we:

  • Provide community support services free of charge.

  • Offer consultation, training and education locally, nationally, and internationally on a fee basis.

jerryanddianehawaii200x134.jpgJerry Jampolsky is a medical doctor trained in psychiatry, and Diane Cirincione holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. They have lectured for 25 years in 55 countries on Attitudinal Healing and are regarded as seminal in the development of a new psychology based on the transformative nature of attitude.

They have written and co-authored a number of books, including Love Is Letting Go Of Fear, Change Your Mind, Change Your Life, Forgiveness - The Greatest Healer of Them All.

Jerry and Diane are both closely affiliated and consult with the International Center for Attitudinal Healing and have partnered with it in helping more than 130 communities worldwide to establish Attitudinal Healing centers and programs.

Jerry is a child and adult psychiatrist, and a graduate of Stanford University Medical School.  He has authored 14 books on attitude that have sold close to 7 million worldwide.

He is regarded as one of the seminal influences in the development of a new arm of psychology which integrates spiritual principles into a psycho-social approach that shifts the focus of support from a pathological orientation (what's wrong with you) to a transformational orientation (what's powerful in you).

He is the recipient of the prestigious Pride in the Profession Award, given by the American Medical Association to physicians whose careers have advanced the art and science of medicine.  He is also the recipient the Sadat Peace Prize, the Creative Altruism Award of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and the Martin Luther King Peace Prize.

7/27/07 - "Death & Other Myths - Part 3"

Beverly talks with 2 guests from Australia for the "Down Under" perspective. Pene Walsh and Naomi Davine join Beverly in sharing their thoughts and stories.

Pene WalshPene Walsh says her goal, for as long as she can remember, has been to self-discover....to find and place the pieces of the Pene Walsh jigsaw in such a way that a clear picture of her true Self emerged.

She became an explorer early and with increasing age, means and insight, she discovered more whilst seeing the big, wide world, meeting teachers and adding many brightly coloured threads, some very hard earned, to what she calls "the tapestry of me".

In 2005 Pene completed her studies as a Buddhist Psychotherapist. Before that she'd had many exciting and memory-filled incarnations from turnip picker to travel agent. Consistently throughout the last 20yrs though Pene has been a self-employed massage therapist, carer to the dying, life coach and perennial student.

Naomi DavineNaomi Davine was born to parents whose surnames are Davine and Power and she laughingly says that divine power has been her constant challenge throughout her spiritually committed life. She says she has done only 2 things consistently for the passed 15yrs and considers herself still a student learning the art of both - being 1. a mother and 2. a meditator.
Naomi, a Tibetan-based Buddhist, approaches life with a gusto that has seen her as a blockading activist in defense of old growth forests, a worker with the mentally and physically disabled for 20yrs and a traveller to Thailand, Nepal and India with her son Jahmon (who she describes as a beautiful soul and her education).

Recently Naomi graduated as a Buddhist psychotherapist and now whilst counselling part-time, continues to study the area of her real fascination, Body-based Therapy.
