Unified Threads


Synopsis: 

It all starts with perception.
What if our perception of the world, and its many inhabitants, expanded?
Every Being has a different vantage point.
When we truly know a soul, we find knowledge.
Asking questions with an open mind is how we learn how to relate to one another.
When we identify with someone beyond the surface level, we fear less and love more.
We’re all teachers.
Every Being on this planet has something impactful to share.
This podcast is about expanding our vision and illuminating the threads that bind us together as a community.

Simply put, this podcast is about Lessons in Love.

Welcome to Unified Threads.
