What’s the Story Behind Radical Grace, a Film About the Nuns vs. The Hierarchy? Meet Rebecca Parrish and Find Out!
When you buck a big hierarchy like the Catholic Church, you can expect a fight. But perhaps the Vatican didnât expect the fight back! Meet Rebecca Parrish, director of the inspiring film Radical Grace, which documents the struggle between U.S. nuns and the Catholic hierarchy. The film focuses on three remarkable nuns, including Simone Campbell (interviewed June 30 on InsideOut). Prior to Pope Francis, the Vatican launched an inquisition into American nuns and their social justice agenda, and it put a male bishop in charge of reforming them. The nuns and their allies pushed back. Ultimately Pope Francis called off the investigation and thanked the sisters for their dedication.This story transcends religion and womenâs rights. Itâs part of the Inner Revolution against mindless conformity and for the needs of real people. Weâre thrilled to introduce you to director Rebecca Parrish. Youâll discover the story behind this film, Rebeccaâs personal story and how making the film changed HER.
Tune in ThursdayÂ at 3pm PST to ‘InsideOut‘
Thanks to the Supreme Court, same-sex marriage is now legal in all states. But what does that actually mean for gay people? Gay marriage is not just a political slogan or an opportunity for benefits and legal status. Any kind of marriage is a choice and challenge. On this show, weâll talk about gay marriage from the inside out. Meet two very diverse couples. Larry and Corey live in a Southern state where same-sex marriage has NOT been legal. Theyâve been together 8 years, but they never before had to confront the question: Should we marry? Debra and Heidi have been together over 30 years. They live in California, took commitment vows in 1993 (their ceremony was the subject of an Academy-award nominated documentary), have two children they birthed, and have been legally married under California law since 2008. Each couple has had to face social and family challenges, and each deals with the issues we all face in relationship: issues of caring, cold feet, love and commitment. Tune in Tues 7/14 @ 3pm PT on ‘InsideOut‘ with Beth Green.
Is the Catholic Church Going Through an Inner Revolution? Meet Sister Simone Campbell and See for Yourself!
In 2012 the Vatican cracked down on American nuns for challenging the hierarchy and focusing on social services and equality, rather than on abortion. Guilty as charged! Our guest Sister Simone Campbell and her organization NETWORK are Catholic sisters committed to awakening social conscience and lobbying for change. The Vatican specifically cited NETWORK, so Simone seized the opportunity to launch a series of tours called the Nuns on the Bus, attracting even more attention to the many social needs American nuns have been addressing. When Pope Francis was elected in 2013, he called on Christians to become revolutionaries caring for the poor and now heâs confronting climate change and our responsibility for it. He also met with representatives of Americaâs nuns and expressed his appreciation. Sounds like an Inner Revolution! Now Simone and two other nuns are the subject of a new documentary called Radical Grace. An activist touched by spirit, sheâs is not alone. Tune in to ‘InsideOut‘ and learn more!
A recent U.N. poll shows that 90% of the worldâs citizens want governments to lead us toward zero emissions to combat climate change. Thatâs rich, poor, everybody. The U.N. Conference on Climate is happening this December, and the future is in their hands. With so much at stake, people everywhere are mobilizing to get governments to act. On June 18, the Pope issued an encyclical saying that human-made climate change is fact (the Pope is a trained scientist) and that confronting it is a moral imperative. Yet in our own nation, the Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee, Inhofe (R-OK), says climate change is a hoax or doesnât matter. So, Paris â the climate conference in December; Italy â the Pope; and Iowa? Thatâs where John Davis comes in. John is an organizer for the Climate Reality Project in Iowa, and heâs a grandfather who cares. He can help us understand the Popeâs encyclical, and he can share with us what we can do to get our government to listen and act. Tune in! Call in! Join the conversation on InsideOut Tuesday 6/23/15 at 3:00pm PT.
Blending Spirituality and Activism: The Message and Journey of James O’Dea, Renowned Conscious Activist
As children, many of us felt called to DO something to help our world. Some became dedicated activists. But many of us became discouraged or burnt out from the anguish and the anger of the movement itself. Then some of us found a new way. One such person is James OâDea, former president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, the Washington office director of Amnesty International, author, philosopher and international peace worker. James is joining host Beth Green to talk about his latest book The Conscious Activist, where he describes his own journey from mysticism, to outrage, to a mature blending of his spirituality and his commitment to help. James is calling us to work on ourselves and face the suffering of the world and to learn to act from the insight gained from the depths of compassion. The Inner Revolution is the movement of people to change the world from the inside out. Meet James OâDea, who is doing just that and lighting the way for others to do the same. Tune in, call in. Tune into InsideOut: The Inner Revolution with Beth Green, 6/9 at 3pm PT.

InsideOut Forum Discussion Call: The Corruption of Social Media and the Subversion of the Inner Revolution
On the InsideOut Forum Discussion Call today we challenged ourselves and each other to look at how we and others have corrupted social media, how we have undermined the Inner Revolution by our self-centered or divisive, often erroneous, sharing. We could see how we have to change the way WE use social media, because THAT is the Inner Revolution, seeing what is wrong with the world and seeing what WE need to change to help that happen. Join us and our online community wherever you are!
On today’s InsideOut Forum Discussion Call we explored whether participants saw signs of greater consciousness in the world and shared their observations. There were many; from prisons without walls to educational systems that are accountable to mutual support groups that help support real changes. Write in and let us know if you see signs of greater consciousness in your world! We welcome you wherever you are!
On today’s InsideOut Forum Discussion call, we continued our exploration of how much we can improve our lives by changing ourselves. The gist of the whole conversation is humanity’s tendency to blame others for our unhappiness and to give others the credit for our happiness. We have come to see that WE, along with our connection to higher consciousness, can improve our lives so much even without being able to change the “other,” or circumstances we don’t like or whatever the outside trigger might be. Join us online and share your experiences and feelings and thoughts! We welcome you!
