Kazuya Yokozawa the stone flautist

Guest Kazuya Yokozawa

Lang Japanese

One day the already well practised flautist was told to blow on a stone flute. This is not exactly an instrument since no human hand had anything to do with its formation. Apparenly small crabs excrete an acidic substance on rocks to slowly create holes into which they will burrow their future homes. This make the stone flute a completely natural creation. To play it then requires an entirely different approach to ‘music’ as he explains to us. The Shinto priest who encouraged him to start also reprimanded him for having an attitude of ‘practise’ since this device can be considered a way of inviting the Gods to come to us. “Could you rehearse a talk with God” he quips? Or would you give that moment your full attention, with no intention of showing off, sounding perfect or even making any musical sense? Like a zen riddle you cannot really learn to play the stone flute, you have to just just press it to your lips and see what happens! In the future thi

Biohacking

Guest Kiki Bosch

Lang English

She sits quietly on the edge of an ice floe for a photo shoot after having just come out of the Greenland Sea @ minus three degrees celsius. Extraordinary adventures and experiments with one’s own physiology we call biohacking these days. In this uplifting interview we share the inside experiences of a woman who has dedicated herself to pushing her own physiology and consciousness far beyond the norm. Her rallying call isDisturb the Comfort and that is exactly what she does. A life of travel and exploration led her from free diving to the frigid power of freezing water and clearly helped her overcome the single biggest trauma she had ever experienced. Spiralling in and out of helplessness and depression from it she found, like her mentor the ‘Iceman’ fellow Dutchman Wim Hof, that cold is the noble force that takes us out of ourselves and thus deeply back into ourselves through a paradox well known to shamans throughout time. She inspires us with news that a new tribe

The Zealous entrepreneur Harry Kosato

Guest Harry Kosato

Lang English

So welcome to.. the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way Serendipidy is defined thus in the dictionary but we do not often connect it to wheeling and dealing in multiple businesses in multiple countries and in multiple languages do we? Meet a true blue entrepreneur who goes by his nickname Harry but whose Japanese name is Hakuei Kosato. Just during this in person interview he fended calls from Mumbai and Hong Hong in connection with the Great British Week in Tokyo’s chic Roppongi-an event he invented like so many others to bring something unique into form and very importantly to ‘pay the bills’ doing it… something his mentor Richard Branson taught him. On his way to London from Kobe via his Tokyo office I caught this effervescent man for long enough to receive a byte of his substantial knowledge about what it really takes to be an entrepreneur. Packed with enlightening hints about how to stop doing what you do NOT want to

Microbial intelligence and complexity

Guest Tatiana Kassessinoff PhD

Lang English

Tatiana Kassessinoff PhD certainly knows her chemistry and knows how important a role science plays in our understanding of health and well being. She also has a clear understanding of the problems scientists face due to not seeing the proverbial forest for the trees. We constitute the forest and yes we BE the tree. The great dichotomy of delving perhaps too deeply into the chemical engines of our bodies, the protein machines that make us tick, comes down to this: Does it really make us whole, healthy and vibrant as human beings? Given the dismal track record of just how seriously our health has degenerated (if you doubt it walk outside and look at obesity, depression, chronic psycho-somatic syndromes and most of all lack of vivacity) we look deeper into the human condition in this episode. Drawing from a wealth of experience including transformational analysis, shamanism and work for the National Institute of Health in the US Tatiana shows us that rare talent of a true ‘mad sci

Elephants in the sky: Leading water research

Guest Professor Gerald Pollack

Lang English

We start with a zen riddle in this interrupted-by-internet-breakdown interview, essentially asking how clouds really form. Professor Gerald Pollack is a world renowned scientist from the University of Washington whose landmark book, The Fourth Phase of Water challenged the long held belief (not fact) that water can only exist as a solid, liquid, or vapour. Long and patient research in his laboratory has revealed one more ‘state’ or phase of water..closer to a gel or a semi-crystallised snow flake. Even more astonishing that is the kind of water we are made of-in our cellular structures. With great humour and panache Dr. Pollack takes us through and past long held superstitions about water and shows us how light and electricity play a far greater role in water’s movement than we have previously assumed. He shows us just how regimented science has become and how to overcome the limitations of its own restictive paradigms through the creation of the Institute for Ventur

And Zen the emerging Future* Part two

Guest Benjamin J. Butler

Lang English

Here we continue the second part of a wide ranging interview with futurist Benjamin J. Butler. Before the interview this most unusual futurist, one who has a rather more holistic view of the ‘future’ prediction paradigm, suggested we go for a dip in the chilly River Dart to better prepare ourselves. Having walked with him in the ancient forests of Devon to get there I can say that it did impact the quality of our conversation. Talking heads is an expression we come across often now. It means solely cerebral communication to many. But Benjamin prepared the interviewer better and I must say that we did have a more meaningful dialogue that the walk and the river ablution surely helped prepare us for. In part two Benjamin spends more time discussing the spiritual aspects of futurism, i.e.  human consciousness itself. Follow his work here.

The Emerging Future: Part One with futurist Benjamin J. Butler

Guest Benjamin J. Butler

Lang English

Meet futurist Benjamin J. Butler for the first part of a discussion on where we could be headed. Educated at King’s College in London he is the founder of the Emerging Future Institute’s grounbreaking approach to the tricky field of future prediction. Having a solid background in Korean zen practice Benjamin encompasses far more than a data-based analysis of trends His eclectic understanding rather eschews a holistic approach that takes into account consciousness itself and how an evolving  human understanding of its reality has begun to sense its own role in the creation of the future. He has addressed corporations, world leaders and successfully predicted events that are only now in the news..like Brexit and the re-unification of the Koreas. His full bio can be seen here:

Hottest Real Estate Market: Rob Garry gives us the inside scoop on Victoria, B.C.

Guest Rob Garry

Lang English

Rob Garry knows more about this city of Victoria than most, having lived and worked here for most of his professional life.With several university degrees, a distinguished career as both a realtor and an arts patron of this city as well as being a wine conoisseur Rob shares with us the reasons why this city has become one of the top destinations for both tourists and for investors. A Meditteranean type climate lends a balmy air to this capital of British Columbia making it an easy rival of the more populated Californian destinations we usually associate with sun and fine real estate. The fact that Victoria is on an island has a significanace that we often forget about and according to Rob there is every good reason to expect that Victoria will continue its winning streak as a top destination for the foreseeable future. This is the first of several short business reports that will keep Real Rover’s eclectic spirit of inquiry broad based and topical.

Energy Body Healing with Alma Lightbody

Guest Alma Lightbody

Lang English

Medicine Beach lies just across the ocean from Alma Lightbody’s home. For thousands of years the first people here knew that healing needs a medicine penetrating far deeper than the physical body alone.  Alma awoke to such energy medicine later in life as a medical technologist more familiar with the allopathic paradigm of treating ills. She combines the pragmatism of a successful entrepreneur with the sensitivity of one who knows that the healing comes from within us ultimately and that we ourselves must determine the conditions of our lives and health. During this interview we discover that Alberto Villoldo, a world renowned Light Body healer working with the Quero medicine men and women of Peru connects both the interviewer and the interviewee. Alma means soul in Spanish and Lightbody, her own original name means what it says. And so does she..
