Ralph's Positive Hour

Current 'Ralph's Positive Hour' (from Tue 19th Dec.'06):
Subud - a spiritual path for all - with Ghofur Woodruff & Emmanuel Martin, Cambridge

This show was available 24 hours on www.209radio.co.uk until Tuesday 17th Jan. '07.

What is Subud? A modern mystic interfaith order? An exotic Indonesian cult? A bunch of spiritual anarchistic freedom fanatics celebrating sacred chaos? A new age, gurus and masters defying organisation? An assiociation of servants of God?
We explain the meaning of the word Subud and what the spiritual practice, the "latihan" is about.
Find out, why this international sister- and brotherhood is so unique.

Ghofur comes from New Zealand and has been in Subud for 15 years. He was opened as soon as he finished High School. He has spent time in Indonesia teaching english in a Subud enterprise. His main forms of employment have been as a music and english teacher and as a musician. Ghofur is currently living with his wife in Cambridge and has just started a PhD in music at the University of Cambridge.
Emmanuel: "I am 35 and live in Cambridge. I am not in work at the moment but I'm an artist and Musician. I have been in Subud for around 8 years. And at present I am the Chairperson of the Local Cambridge group. I have one small cat."

We discuss the following questions and details:

At the end we read some quotes of the Subud founder "Bapak" about the birth of Christ (it's Christmas coming!) from the book "The Light of Christ", edited and compiled by Luqman McKingley, Starlight Press.


Songs we played during this show:

  1. "Always look on the bright side of life" by Eric Idle, from the 'Monty Python's Life of Brian' soundtrack (show title song)
  2. "Pastime Paradise" by Ray Barretto, track no. 1 (sorry - faded out).

  4. "Ave Sanctissima Maria", Jean Mouton, track no. 6
  5. "Aguas de Marco" Elis and Tom by Tom Jobim. Track 2 from 'Bossa4two'.
...What I forgot to mention in this show:
  • Merry Christmas - and a happy New Year to all listeners!
  • Of course I invited Subud women - but they all were out working at the time of the LIVE broadcast...
  • special thanks to Ghofur and Emmanuel for coming!
  • An excellent introduction by Sharif Horthy (Bapak's translator): "My Personal Introduction to A Spiritual Path - Subud" www.subud.ca/index.php?id=56

Ralph's Positive Hour

Ralph's Positive Hour from Tue 21st Nov.'06 with Margaret Amina and Ralph:
"The Magic of Dances of Universal Peace"

This show was available (not any more...) 24 hours on www.209radio.co.uk until Tuesday 19th December '06.

Margaret Amina and Ralph Nimmann are Cambridge based peace dance teachers.
They share their insights and experiences with the Dances of Universal Peace, give background information about the dances and some acustic examples.

Margaret Amina became interested in the Dances after meeting Ralph at Circle dance and finally plucking up enough courage to join Ralph's DUP sessions in 1998. The following year she attended her first International Dance Camp at Ralph's suggestion and found it changed her life. She has since trained to lead dances (partly because she thought Ralph was going to leave Cambridge and she didn't want the dances to stop!) and runs a monthly group in Cambridge and co-leads a group in Hammersmith, London. She has also joined the organising Committee for the Sacred Arts Dance Camp to co-ordinate the DUP.
Read about Ralph and the Dances of Universal Peace

The Dances of Universal Peace are a form of meditation through sacred sounds and devotional movements. Singing and dancing are elementary creative expressions of our being.
Focusing and using our bodies, hearts and souls, brings our whole being into balance and harmony.

The feeling of chanting simple, sacred phrases with devotion in English, Greek, Latin, Aramaic, Hebrew, Arabic, Sanskrit and many other languages gives, especially when combined with movement, an immediate, accessible feeling for another tradition.
Rhythm is life: every step - every heartbeat - breathing in and out.
The human voice is a gateway to the soul.
Forming a circle is a symbol and reminder of us being part of a community. In synchronised movements of the group as one organism, the separated individuality may dissolve into a blissful state of oneness.
Singing in harmony with others resonates with all creation: sun, moon and the planets, the elements around us - and the dancing atoms in us.
The soul can rejoice - and worries fade away . . .

In this show you may find out what's the magic of the Dances of Universal Peace from the dancer's as well as from the dance leader's point.
Hear what Samuel Lewis (the founder of the peace dances) says about "The Goose-step and War". We also demonstrate the "Element Walks" acustically.

Healing for everyone - the Andreasen Wholistic Healing Centre Cambridge
interview with Suzanna, John and Dennis

This show was available 24 hours on www.209radio.co.uk from Tue 16th May until middle of June '06. On the 17th of June this year the Andreasen Wholistic Healing Centre will be celebrating it's 20th anniversary - time to look back - and forward - and reflect a little about the use of this healing centre, the motivation of the healers involved and healing in general. The healers Suzanna, John and Dennis will be special guests today.
"The wholistic approach to health, as practiced at this centre, emphasises enhancing the quality of life, whatever the condition. This approach is complementary to orthodox medical care, and in no way replaces conventional treatment. Through a broader understanding of how health can be improved, healing is encouraged by treating the whole person as an individual, not just the symptoms. This affects not only the physical, but also the mental, emotional and spiritual needs as well, brought about by the gentle, positive techniques." - read more about the Andreasen Centre

Today we are discussing teh following questions - and more:

  • what is healing?
  • what motivates healers to heal?

  • if yes, doesn't healing people deprive them to learn their lesson?
  • can healing interfere with the karma of the client?
  • what about distant healing?
  • can you send healing energy to our listeners?
  • what are your visions for the future?
Towards the end of the show we make an experiment and send healing energy out to our listeners - see if you can feel anything! If yes, please E-mail Ralph at

"Cambridge Carbon Footprint" with guest Andy Brown

Cambridge Community Radio tests the air: Fri 11th FM broadcast test sessions, from Sat.13th Feb. full programme - More above... Today Ralph is airing all about the "Cambridge Carbon Footprint" - on www.209radio.co.uk.
Special guest: Andy Brown from Cambridge Carbon Footprint - www.cambridgecarbonfootprint.org.uk
Today's show was kindly sponsored by Ben Hayward Cycles, Trumpington Street (nr. Silver Street), tel. 352294.

Find out:

  • What is a Carbon Footprint?
  • What has your shopping and your food got to do with global warming?
  • How does bottled water contribute to global warming?
  • How does your holiday making cause carbon dioxide emissions?
  • TV standby & other things contributing to CO emissions
  • What can we do to make a difference?"
  • and more.... PS: so here is the exact result for Ralph's Carbon Footprint (last 12 months), which we talked about in this show:
    The CAT Carbon Gym calculates your CO2 footprint in tonnes as:
    1. Your House 0.4
    2. Water heating 0.3
    3. Cooking 0.1
    4. Electrical appliances 0.1
    5. Food 0.7
    6. Shopping 0.5
    7. Waste 0.0
    8. Transport 0.2
    9. Air flights 4.0
      Total 6.2
    Compare this with USA average 20 tonnes - UK average 10 tonnes - World average 4.5 tonnes - UK target for 2050 4 tonnes - Global sustainable emissions 2.5 tonnes - Tanzania 0.1 tonne
    The calculation of this footprint is a rough one, using information that is easy to ask people about.. To obtain a more accurate figure of your personal contribution, you need your annual fuel bills and travel mileage. There is a calculator that uses this data on the CAT web-site, www.cat.org.uk/carbongym/carbongym.tmpl?section=ccenter

    We played the following music during the show:

    1. John Renborn /Pentangle: Lord Franklin
    2. Dire Straits: Brothers in Arms

    Special guest Dina Ridge will share her views in a refreshing and yet simple way with us today. Dina Ridge
    Dina about herself:
    "I am a practising Hindu and was born in Uganda. Came to this country in 1969 under the government quota system. Went to Pitmans College in Golders Green to do a secretarial course and over the years diversified into doing various things. One of the things I love doing is giving talks on Hindu Culture and Customs to various organisations; I do school assemblies on Hinduism and also help to organise diversity events.
    Cooking Anglo Indian Vegetarian food is another passion of mine. Whilst living in a rural setting for the last 20 years my faith has grown due to my English friends asking me questions which I never thought of examining deeper. I feel we are all equal and belong to one God."

    We'll chat about various subjects such as:

    • What is Hinduism?
    • Do Hindus believe in one God - they have so many Gods and Goddesses?
    • Why are Hindus worshipping an elephant (Ganesha)?
    • What about the frightful Kali, pictured with skulls round her waist?
    • In what way does being a Hindu influence daily life?
    • Is there a holy book for Hindus?
    • How is your relationship with non Hindus?
    If you want to follow up some themes mentioned, here are a few useful links:

    We play the following music during the show:

    1. Frank Sinatra: "Come Fly with Me" ( I like the concept of being in love and fly away and be with angels)
