Dawn of an Era of Well-Being
With Ervin Laszlo & Frederick Tsao
Moderator: Alison Goldwyn / Nora Csiszar
Dawn of An Era of Well-Being is the podcast that brings together some of the world’s most innovative thinkers to weigh in on matters concerning the future of ourselves and our planet—and to discuss that future not as something to be predicted, but to be created.
In each episode, your hosts Ervin Laszlo and Frederick Tsao, and moderator Nora Csiszar (from season 3) will converse with guests from numerous disciplines to help us navigate a new worldview which derives its wisdom from a synthesis of ancient and modern, East and West, and science and spirituality.
From these seemingly divergent perspectives, we will demonstrate how to we can create a new narrative and usher in the dawn of a better era.
Humankind today is facing monumental challenges—the sustainability of natural resources, climate change, wealth inequalities, breakdowns in social structures, the impact of artificial intelligence, and of course the threat of pandemics.
What we need to understand is that behind each of these challenges stands an opportunity to create a new future, and with it a better world. But first we need to open our eyes and understand that the old “normal” which we have grown so accustomed to is no longer sustainable—change is going to come and a “new normal” is not simply necessary, it is imminent.

New York, NY – On Monday, October 9, 2023, much of the United States will hold its annual observance of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
Jean Hazel Henderson (27 March 1933 – 22 May 2022) was a tremendous intellectual force helping us make economic sense out of human connection and advocating for a green agenda to mitigate climate change long before many of us knew what these terms meant. Hazel was also a close friend and collaborator with our program’s co-host, Ervin Laszlo—in fact, she was our first guest on the show. She was also a contributor to Ervin Laszlo and Fred Tsao’s recent book which shares the same title as this podcast, Dawn of an Era of Well-Being. Sadly, Hazel departed this world on May 22, 2022, though we can be assured that wherever she may be, the strength of her ideas will continue to drive this planet in the direction peace, love, and sustainability.

In today’s abbreviated episode, our moderator Alison Goldwyn speaks with Ervin as he reflects on Hazel Henderson’s legacy and their friendship.

Karen is also founder of Sacred Acoustics, a therapeutic program utilizing audio signals embedded in recordings to help calm the mind to reduce anxiety and stress and improve sleep and focus.

Patterns of millennia have prepared us for another world, another time, another era. At the same time, the virus pandemic, unlike any ever known in human history or pre-history, has confused our values, uprooted our traditions, and left us in a labyrinth of misdirection.
In our quest to overcome the challenges that stand in the way of a better future—an era of “well-being” as our program frequently makes reference—we need to consider paths to spiritual betterment which help show us the way.
We are very pleased to be joined today by the scientist, psychologist, and transformational teacher, Shamini Jain, PhD. Dr. Jain is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI).
a very special episode of our podcast as Frederick Tsao, Ervin Laszlo, and our moderator, Alison Goldwyn take a close look at the human condition with the extraordinary Deepak Chopra.

SEASON 1 – Episodes
Today’s conversation with Master Sha is very special for a few reasons. First of all, this will be the last episode of our first season of Dawn of an Era of Well-Being: The Podcast.
Today we have the distinct honor of speaking with the author, political activist, spiritual advisor, and one time US Presidential candidate, Marianne Williamson. You can expect a dynamic conversation as Williamson is rarely one to mince words, nor has she ever been known to flinch at confronting life’s uncomfortable truths.
Today we are joined for a dynamic conversation with the noted biologist Bruce Lipton whose groundbreaking work on the connection between science and spirituality has made him an important voice in the fields of new biology and epigenetics.
Our world is entering what may be referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This is an era marked by technological advances which manufacture machines that are capable of outperforming human.
Today’s discussion starts off with an investigation of storylines and narratives. Are storylines a necessity for the human species, perhaps an element that is intrinsic to our DNA?
In this episode, Ervin and Alison are joined by Michael Beckwith, Founder and Spiritual Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center.
In this episode, we are joined by cosmologist, futurist, and author, Dr. Jude Currivan as we embark on an expansive discussion of the Cosmos and what implications our often self-destructive activities here on earth might have on a universal consciousness.
In this episode, we are honored to welcome the American scientist and researcher, and retired Princeton scholar, Roger Nelson for an in depth discussion on randomness, technology, and consciousness; including his research on Random Number Generators and its relevance to human connection.
In this episode, Today’s episode with Howard Martin was recorded in two parts, the first with Howard and Alison, and the second part also includes Ervin Laszlo. Our conversation today covered a range of fascinating subjects including HeartMath’s Heart Sensor App technology (i.e. The Inner Balance Trainer, available for Apple and Android devices), Heart Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence, and the path to a more compassionate world.
In this episode, we speak with Lynne McTaggart about the power of intention as a function of consciousness, and how intention works in tandem with the act of paying “attention”.
In this episode, Michael Tobias speaks with host Ervin Laszlo and moderator Alison Goldwyn to contemplate the value of the human species, and why it is (or perhaps is not) important for us to continue our stay on this planet. This episode concludes with co-host Fred Tsao offering some of his own thoughts on the same subject.

Welcome to DAWN OF AN ERA OF WELL-BEING: The Podcast, a program that is dedicated to helping us find knowledge and comfort at a time when an atmosphere of confusion has become so pervasive. In this pilot episode, our hosts Ervin Laszlo and Frederick Tsao confer with moderator Alison Goldwyn on matters of consciousness, science and spirituality, and their concept of the “New Paradigm”.
Ervin Laszlo is a Hungarian philosopher of science, systems theorist, integral theorist (and originally a concert pianist) who has published about 75 books and over 400 papers. An advocate of the theory of quantum consciousness, Laszlo has a PhD from the Sorbonne and is the recipient of four honorary PhD’s (from the United States, Canada, Finland, and Hungary).
His many awards and distinctions include the Peace Prize of Japan, the Goi Award (Tokyo 2002), the International Mandir of Peace Prize (Assisi 2005), and nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize (2004 and 2005).
Ervin Laszlo spent his childhood in Budapest, Hungary. He was a celebrated child prodigy on the piano, with public appearances from the age of nine. Receiving a Grand Prize at the inter- national music competition in Geneva, he was allowed to leave Hungary and begin an international concert career, first in Europe and then in America.
He is a member of numerous scientific bodies, including the Inter- national Academy of Science, the World Academy of Arts and Science, the International Academy of Philosophy of Science, and the International Medici Academy. He was elected member of the Hungarian Academy of Science in 2010.
With more than 40 years’ experience as an entrepreneur, Fred has worked successfully with business partners and governments in multiple markets across diverse cultures. Not afraid to push boundaries, as Chairman of Intercargo, Fred repositioned the dry bulk industry from a shipper to one that plays a role within the global supply chain.
Fred has published over 30 books in Chinese, concluding that we are amidst a major consciousness shift and at the dawn of a new era. He advocates that business should transform and reform our era.
For this, he founded OCTAVE Institute, a comprehensive integrated life journey approach towards well-being.
In 2019, Fred co-authored “Quantum Leadership, New Consciousness in Business” with Chris Laszlo, published by Stanford University Press. Fred also contributed a piece titled “Reconnecting to the Source in the Mirror of Chinese Culture” to the book by Ervin Laszlo titled “Reconnecting to the Source” published by St. Martin’s Press in 2020.
DAWN of AN ERA of WELL-BEING
Humankind is facing monumental challenges—the sustainability of our natural resources, climate change, wealth inequalities, breakdowns in social structures, the impact of artificial intelligence, and of course the threat of pandemics. What we need to understand is that with each of these challenges is an opportunity to create a better future for our Earth. But first we need to open our eyes and understand how the old “normal”—the conventions and assumptions about how our systems work—are no longer sustainable. Change is going to occur, and a “new normal” is not simply necessary; it is imminent.
The authors of Dawn of An Era of Well-Being offer a unique worldview called the “quantum paradigm” that is emerging in society. Their concepts and principles are drawn from theories of Western science and Eastern wisdom traditions of human spirituality. These compass points for navigating the uncharted waters we are entering will be of interest to all who want to find a path to a better world. In this critical work authors Ervin Laszlo and Frederick Tsao are joined by several contributors including Deepak Chopra, Jean Houston, Neale Donald Walsch, and other well-known thought leaders.
