Betsy Whitfill is a mother of two and a grandmother of two. She recently retired from 15 years as office manager of a Dallas internal medicine practice. Her husband is an internist, and one son has just completed his training in internal medicine.

As correspondent for Share International, she recently spoke with Lynn Thompson on Living on Purpose about Transmission Meditation, the enlightened Teacher Maitreya, Benjamin Creme, and some of the purposeful functions of UFOs. This is the final 30-minute segment of two parts of their conversation.

Educated as a philosopher, Betsy Whitfill has been national coordinator for Share International Media Service since 1988 and the correspondent for Share International Magazine since 1991. In 1985 Whitfill had a personal experience of an enlightened Teacher named Maitreya, which caused her to change the priorities in her life. Years of studying the Ageless Wisdom Teachings had provided a context for this experience, and further study awakened her to the possibility of a future quite different from the one toward which we're currently headed.

The first half hour segment of the conversation between Lynn and Betsy can be accessed through the WomensRadio archives of Living on Purpose.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
