March 10-14 Programs

Dear Hereonearthlings (Better!),

I'm on vacation this week, leaving the program in the capable reins of Lori Skelton and Veronica Rueckert.

Monday: Psycho-Spiritual Healing: Once you have faced a physical trauma, how do you mend the mind and the spirit? Dr. Charika Marasinghe of Sarvodaya, Sri Lanka's largest charitable organization, discusses psycho-spiritual healing, an integration of western science and eastern philosophy.

Tuesday: For the last two millennia human beings have fought the most over religions. And the winner is ...? According to the guest this hour, historians may one day look back on the next few decades, not as yet another era when religious conflicts enveloped countries and blew apart established societies, but as the era when secularization took over the world.

Wednesday: We’re trying to book Eric Wilson, author of "Against Happiness: In Praise of Melancholy," or the writer/director of “Persepolis.”

Thursday: A writer uses her favorite examples from languages dead, difficult, and just plain made-up to reveal how language study is the ticket to traveling the world without leaving the comforts of home.

Friday: A native Parisian and passionate explorer of the city’s food scene, Clotilde Dusoulier takes us on a mouthwatering tour of the best restaurants, markets, and shops in Paris.

Have a good one!
