Body Language of Obama and McCain

Body Language of Obama and McCain

Yesterday’s meeting of Obama and McCain revealed interesting body language. Obama had his legs widely crossed, he lounged back in his chair and angled his body toward McCain, all of which signified openness and a high level of ease. McCain, on the other hand, seemed pretty ill at ease. That’s not a criticism — any of us would feel the same. His legs were crossed very tightly (more like a woman’s), he sat up ramrod straight and his body was angled straight ahead, not at Obama. All of this simply demonstrates  that we can’t hide how we really feel to others — our bodies speak louder than words.


Dr. Christiane Northrup and Brian Klemmer: Honesty in All Aspects of Life

Dr. Christiane Northrup, OB/GYN, is at the forefront of women’s health issues and in honoring the mind body connection within the medical community. Dr. Northrup joins us today to talk about her book, The Secret Pleasures of Menopause, as well as about understanding the relationship between women’s health and our minds and souls. Shifting gears, we have Brian Klemmer, author of The Compassionate Samurai, with us to discuss the importance of being compassionate and ethical in the midst of a “cut-throat” world. Both guests show us the importance of maintaining a strong sense of self in the midst of adversity. This is a wonderful and full show. Join us.

Yes We Can – But Not With Her

When I learned John McCain had selected Sarah Palin to be his running mate, I thought, “Hallelujah! No matter who wins, it will be an historic first.” Then I saw and heard Sarah Palin, and thought, “No! If they win, no one wins. Women certainly do not win. In fact, we will be set back a century.” From her seduction of the camera to her inexcusable ignorance, Governor Palin’s brand of politics we can do without. Is this what we want to teach our daughters? That women don’t succeed on their merit but on their resemblance to a Barbie doll? Learn what Sarah Palin’s demeanor tells us about her anti-feminist ideals at my blog on the Huffington Post.

Sarah Palin hasn’t gone away. Oh, she may be back in Alaska, but she’s also all over the media, as in recent interviews with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News, on the Today show with Matt Lauer, and on Larry King Live. Even Oprah has invited Sarah to her show!… Read Post

Those who meditate regularly for five years are physiologically twelve years younger. There can be no better testimonial for the power of the mind and the benefits of our being mindful.

Joan takes us on a tour of her very personal journey to enlightenment and belief in mind body medicine, discussing the importance of using all the modalities available to us in order to connect to the spirit, whether conventional or alternative. This is an exciting glance into the mind of one of leaders of mind body medicine and practical spirituality.

Reawakening the American Dream

Goethe wrote, “In all things it is better to hope than to despair.” We chose hope with Barack Obama’s election to the highest office in the land. After years of being stuck in a quagmire of dishonesty and negativity, it is like spring to have a positive force in the White House. A great office needs a great person, and in Obama, we fortunately have one who acts with grace, compassion, and composure. To navigate us through this difficult time, we need a figure who can garner respect throughout the world – not just in moneyed circles but in the furthest reaches of the world. For more of my thoughts on the politics of the day, visit my blog at the Huffington Post.

It’s been a long time coming, this resurrection of hope and excitement in America, and around the world. I’ve been inundated with calls and emails from all over the world celebrating the direction our country has taken. In this global age, when it is possible for a small village in… Read Post


Anything is possible. At last.


Last night was a momentous occasion in the history of this country, and in the world. Racial barriers not only crumbled, they disintegrated. Young Afro-Americans have a new image of what they can become when they grow up. And all of us can see in the spousal body language of Barack and Michelle Obama what it means to have real love and intimacy in a marriage relationship.

Those were real heartwarming hugs and kisses, direct eye contact and ear-to-ear smiles. The joy was apparent, as clear as the fact that they were in this together. During his speech last night, Obama said, “We would not be standing here tonight without the unyielding support of my best friend of the last 16 years, the rock of our family, the love of my life, the nation’s next first lady, Michelle Obama.” Or as Whoppi Goldberg put it on this morning’s The View, there will be “a whole lot of whooping going on” in the Obama White House.

Body language tells us a lot about people. And what it tells us about our next President and his First Lady is that the White House will be a true home filled with tenderness and love, a place of safety and security for their two girls, and a place from which compassion and understanding can radiate out to the world.
