Do you struggle with organized religion? Are you turned off by the scandals surrounding the Catholic Church – or how some religions, who are supposed to stand for love and compassion, become more intolerant and prejudice? Yet no matter how much you oppose the rules and dogmata of organized religion, you still long for some kind of connection to a God, a higher power or the Universe. So where to begin? My special guest on this week’s Empowerment Radio is Ben Jamison, author of “Church-Free Spirituality: How to Craft a Spiritual Practice Beyond the Bounds of Religion.” Join Ben and me and learn how you can develop your spirituality outside the limitations of religion.

Friedemann Schaub MD, PhD received his medical degree from the University of Munich and pursued a career in cardiology at the Munich University Hospital before moving to Seattle where he received a doctorate in molecular-biology from the University of Washington. His research has been published and featured in national and international medical and science journals.
During more than twenty-years in the medical field, Dr. Schaub became increasingly fascinated by the powerful influence of our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs on health and disease. He recognized that our abundant self-healing abilities can only function effectively when mind, body, and spirit are in alignment, and that the mind-body-spirit connection – in particular the subconscious mind – holds the keys to accelerated healing, well-being, and success.
Realizing this enormous potential, he extensively studied mind-activating modalities and became a certified master practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Time Line Therapy TM. He is also an American Board of Hypnotherapy (ABH)–certified trainer of clinical hypnotherapy.
Based on this wealth of knowledge and experience, Dr. Schaub created a personal breakthrough and empowerment program specifically designed to eliminate emotional and mental blocks and limitations that prevent us from fully activating our potential to heal, change and succeed. He has helped thousands of people all over the world overcome fear and anxiety to lead confident, authentic and successful lives.
