Podcast: Episode 22: Enjoying the Male/Female Divine with Rev. Janice Hope Gorman, Part 1

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.

Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

Whether we like it or not both male and female directives reside side by side in each of us. Perhaps this is the original relationship in the human design. Does it have to be adversarial as some would believe? Joining Janet is Rev. Janice Hope Gorman, founder and director of the Hope Interfaith Center. Together they will explore how both directives working together in harmony are foundation to inspire our knowing of Oneness and Being.

Rev. Janice Hope Gorman is a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and a Certified Oneness Blesser of Deeksha' from the Oneness University of India. She is the Founder and Director of the Hope Interfaith Center, located in Mankato, Minnesota. The mission of the Hope Interfaith Center is to inspire all in Oneness to create a better world by empowering people to recognize and honor the Divine in self and all.

“Hope,” as many people call her, was given that name by one of her early teachers. Hope means “Help Open Planetary Eyes.” Her vocation is mainly focused on spiritual teaching and mentoring to help people realize their own magnificence and personal power. She is passionate about the profound spiritual awakening, which is the hallmark of these times; that we are all ONE. Her teachings are universal in nature and do not represent the beliefs of any one religion, spiritual practice or movement.

In addition to one-on-one spiritual counseling, she offers a yearlong leadership program for people who are called to become Ordained Interfaith Ministers.

Hope is on the Board of the Diversity Program for the Mayo Chaplaincy Program. She is also a member of the Interfaith Symposium Group, which promotes awareness and understanding among religions of all faiths. And, she has begun a program called WOW – Women of Wisdom, dedicated to helping women work together toward the greater good.

Since March 2013, Hope also hosts “The Pure Hope Show,” which is broadcast monthly through Blog Talk Radio. Her episodes include interviews with healers and teachers from several countries as well as from the local community.

Language: Featured Words in ContextTree of life with heart on trunk

Feeling Unity: when you let go of differences and add appreciation into the mix.

Feeling Oneness: It is our truth when we let ourselves loosen our judgments about life.

Life as a Mobius Strip: No beginning, no ending, just transformation and transcendence where it crosses on itself. We are all the same dynamic, Spirit, showing up as earth, human, vegetable, cosmos. In form, out of form.

Wonder is our experience. It is what happens when we open to the Awe in the form of a being in BEING out of form and origin.

Quotes from Reverend Janice Hope Gorman

“I am a Spiritual Teacher who freed myself from the control of others and then found my true self. Let's do this together and join me in becoming a inner alchemist from within. Instead of others shaping who we are, Go within to the GURU and marry it!”

“I help people find the willingness to confront the false beliefs, create a passion for learning truth, and viewing failure as a springboard for growth. The past is just Research and Development. Always remember that!”

“We all have beliefs about our own abilities and potential and personal identities. But many of those beliefs came from our society, cultures and religions. The inner Alchemist is one who is no longer under the control of others. She/he is one who is now totally “out of control” and she/he now goes within to define themselves from their own inner wisdom. This is where the marriage takes place within when the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine no longer exist it is just ONE!”

“In our struggle for freedom, truth of our inner wisdom is the only thing we can ever possess.”

The Dalai Lama

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
