Northern Spirit Radio

Illuminating the connections
between the roots and fruits of the Spirit

Northern Spirit Radio was founded by Mark Helpsmeet in 2005 with the support of the Eau Claire Friends Meeting in Wisconsin to provide programming for WHYS, Eau Claire’s new low-power FM station.

Its mission:

Northern Spirit Radio promotes world healing
by broadcasting inspirational and educational voices of peace and social justice
using the language of personal story, music, and spirituality.

Northern Spirit Radio brings you stories of people living lives of fruitful service, of peace, community, compassion, creative action and progressive efforts. We trace the spiritual roots that support and nourish them in their service. Each week host Mark Helpsmeet highlights everyday neighbors from around the globe who work for peace and social justice as well as musicians who share the deeper meaning behind their music. Interviews are an informal, warm dialog between guest and host that will leave you feeling richer for listening.

Spirit In Action is an hour of interviews with those providing leadership in peace, justice and “good works.”

Song of the Soul guests share music that speaks of their spiritual path, beliefs or journey, as Mark explores with them the relevance and meaning of this music to their experience.

Northern Spirit Radio began syndicating its programs in 2007, and now has programming syndicated on more than 20 radio stations. It also has a robust web site at www.northernspiritradio.org.
