Ken Rohla is a natural health educator and inventor from New Smyrna Beach, Florida,
specializing in rejuvenation and cellular regeneration using raw and sprouted vegetarian
food, herbs, food-based natural supplements, detoxification, emotional healing,
reprogramming of limiting unconscious beliefs, ancient esoteric techniques, and cutting edge
science. Formally educated in electrical engineering and computer science, Ken
worked for 23 years in the medical industry, from the patient level drawing blood in
hospital emergency rooms, to the national policy level, showing healthcare executives
how to implement technology, as computer operations manager for the North Carolina
Hospital Association. In 1993, at the age of 32, Ken was first exposed to natural healing
in a search to cure severe hypoglycemia and other health problems he had acquired
from a lifetime of poor diet and lifestyle. Eight years and many thousands of dollars
later, after trying a litany of diets, products, potions, and pills, Ken found permanent
success with living food nutrition and detoxification. After repeated requests from
friends to share what he had learned, Ken began teaching workshops on detoxification
and rejuvenation in 2003, and demand for his services exploded. A cutting-edge
researcher, Ken has studied with many pioneers in the sciences and natural health
movement, including Gabriel Cousens, MD; Drs. Brian and Anna Maria Clement; David
Wolfe; Dr. Robert Morse; Viktoras Kulvinskas; Brenda Cobb; and many others. In 2005,
Ken became certified as a natural health educator by
Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida, and in 2006 was honored to
work with Coretta Scott King, wife of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Currently Ken’s
focus is developing natural solutions for new severe threats to our health, such as
nuclear radiation, geoengineering pollutants, genetically modified foods and
microorganisms, electromagnetic pollution, nanotechnology, biowarfare agents,
depleted food, and other issues. You may see interviews with Ken on Gaiam TV, Red Ice
Radio, and elsewhere on his web site, www.freshandalive.com.
This interview took off into an improvisational exploration into Les Stroud’s view and experience of a creative life. Les was able to delve into and articulate his life effort as a creator. Much of the interview is centered around exploring the below quote.
“In the adventure known as life, there are some that live it vicariously and enjoy the ride from the safety of an armchair, and that’s good. There are those who have a few chances to realize incredible and life changing experiences and though they don’t repeat them they carry with them a growth in personal philosophy for the rest of their lives. And there are those for whome a taste is never enough. For whome the lust for adventure is nearly insatiable. And if you add to that the overwhelming desire to create, and to share, then you get where I reside. For the end of one adventure, only signifies the beginning of another” ~ Les Stroud

Our desire at Radiant Creators is to interview inspiring people and extract inspiration into an audible elixir for listeners. This interview is exactly that!
“A chronicle about an Army veteran who becomes homeless, and follows his dream of hiking and cycling all over North America. Although he is homeless, he gets by with his survival skills and the help of strangers as he raises money for various charities and support groups. His altruistic trek spans over the course of three years and comes to an abrupt stop at his 10,000th mile. From Delaware to California, from Florida to Alaska, follow along to experience this man’s journey of compassion, chaos, supernatural events, deadly situations, loneliness, comic relief, selflessness, betrayal, heartbreak, and humbleness. You will never read a travel story quite like this one!”
This book review from Amazon by Katrina Rachel describes the book well:
“A travelogue written by a U.S. Army veteran struggling with PTSD and bipolar disorder. Finding himself unemployed and homeless, Jake sells all his possessions and decides he will walk across America while raising money for various charities, including St. Jude’s Hospital. Uncomfortable in busy, densely populated areas Jake tries to stick to backroads and small towns. Along the way, he copes with being mistaken for a homeless vagrant, a potential troublemaker, is harassed by police and people who judge only the book’s cover and never look inside. These experiences are balanced with many encounters with kind strangers, as well as followers of his blog who meet up with him, offer him food, drink, care packages, entertainment and respite from the fatigue of the long journey. Skilled in wood craft Jake camps, hunts, fishes and uses his Army training to be as self-sufficient as possible. Even during his darkest days of depression, as he contemplates suicide, his honesty and integrity shine through, and you feel as though you are listening to a dear friend unburdening their heart to you. A remarkable book, by a remarkable man, who has travelled 10,000 miles by bicycle and on foot, across America and is not yet 30 years old. I hope the coming years bring him the health, peace, and happiness he deserves.”
Today we interview Kelley Jankowski, author of An Army in Heaven. As a Hospice Nurse, Kelly has deep experience and perspective with death and dying. Her mission is providing dignified and caring assistance to those transitioning into death. We discuss the contrasts between the modern process of birth and death taking place in a hospital versus the home, which was more common in the past. We also speak of the empowering positive transformative nature of devoted care for another, and many other topics.
From An Army in Heaven description on Amazon:
What do people see as death approaches? What will Heaven be like? What will Hell be like? An Army In Heaven records the deathbed visions of hospice patients, as well as those in a critical care setting who have died and then returned to describe their experience on the other side. Read about their accounts of Heaven and Hell, their visions of loved ones who have long traversed to the other side. Compassionate and compelling, this book retells their experiences. Their accounts are moving, edifying and sometimes disturbing, as cases of terrible abuse, neglect and even the demonic are also witnessed. Written by the nurse assigned to their care, An Army In Heaven is a compilation of their stories, what they saw on the other side and what they see as the veil thins during the dying process. It will change how you view life and most importantly, how you view death.
