Join Guide To Self for an out of the box show. Dr. John talks with Tom Munnecke, founder of Uplift Academy and a former Visiting Scholar at Stanford University, about positive change on a global basis.
Where Dr. John is passionate about helping individuals manage their internal world, their thoughts and feelings, and their immediate relationships, Tom is passionate about helping groups of individuals using the power of the web to create a better world. Idealistic? Absolutely. Foolish? Not a bit.
Tom focuses on a different level or layer of the challenge the challenge to improve the world on a large scale.
After 30 years designing large scale hospital information systems, Tom Munnecke quit his job as a vice president and chief scientist at a Fortune 500 company. He asked himself, “What is the simplest thing I can do which will have the greatest benefit for humanity?” A 5 year process of travel, study, and meditation lead to the formation of GivingSpace – a think tank to explore innovative ways of using technology in humanitarian activities. In 2003, Tom took a position as a Visiting Scholar at Stanford’s Digital Visions Program during which he shifted his focus from purely charitable giving and philanthropy to a more general notion of humanitarian uplift, which was based on Jon Haidts notion of the positive emotion of elevation.
Most recently Tom founded the Uplift Academy, a think tank where visionaries can discuss big ideas about hilanthropy, networking and giving back to society.

A recent show about the immense power contained within the human heart. This information will change your view of the world around you and within you. The heart has a mini-brain. The heart creates the largest field of energy within the body. Some tools of measurement claim our energy emanates (sp?) to be 10 feet outside of the body. How do you get the brain in synch with the heart? That is the key!
