7/10/13: Self-Awareness with Gina Maria Mele and Joshua Home Edwards
Download call audio

Gina Maria MeleSince Gina was young, she has asked questions. Why?... Why do our bodies behave the way they do? Why do I feel unsatisfied with the knowledge I have gleaned from Western Science? Is there something I am missing? Why, to all that is? What is at the source of it all? Why does our reality exist in the way we perceive it through our senses?

Some of these questions propelled her into a 10 year study of western science and allopathic medicine. She received a B.S. in Biochemistry & Cell Biology and a M.S. in Systems Neurobiology at the University of California, San Diego then continued to conduct academic research in the areas of human molecular genetics at the University Texas, Southwestern Medical School and protein biology at the University of Colorado, Denver.

Other questions led her into another nine years of study, a voyage into the internal universe - the world of beliefs. This included individual beliefs/thoughts, both conscious and unconscious, generational beliefs and cultural belief systems.

From this cumulative body of knowledge, insight and intuition a new field has emerged, one that encompasses the fields of medicine, spirituality, psychology, ontology, neurobiology, quantum physics and the study of belief systems. This field, The New Paradigm, merges what traditionally is seen as paradoxical; mind & heart, the unseen with the seen, science & spirituality, the whole & the individual, body & soul, reality with non-reality and duality with oneness. The New Paradigm, founded by Gina Maria Mele, M.S. offers workshops, teleclasses, individual sessions and trainings. She invites you to ask, What is your biggest 'Why?' and to send your responses and questions to ginamariamelems [at] gmail [dot] com

In addition to assisting these leaders and many other luminaries receive millions of dollars in sales and contributions, he has served as a tele-conference coach for organizations such as The United Nations, The World Bank,, and the National Science Foundation.

Most importantly, Joshua has said more than 1,201,312 prayers in support of the United Nations' "Billion for a Billion" campaign to help bring about a Fully Nourished world for everyone on Earth in our lifetime.

Toward this goal of creating the internal conditions where this external result can actually happen, he lives to empower people in the process of turning the monologue of our minds into a Dialogue with the Divine. You can learn more about this process by going to
