Our background is in journalism, video production, business and spiritual aspiration.  Our purpose is to share what we find with others.

Ted Henry has been a Television journalist for more than 40 years. In 2009 he retired from WEWS-TV, the ABC network affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio, USA where among his many duties,he presented a weekly news report on spirituality called, "Heart and Soul". These video accounts were always intended to pursue those most interested in learning about the purpose of their being and their truest identity. Eventually these spiritual explorations led to Ted's work with Souljourns.

Because he's a journalist with a long standing interest in spirituality, Ted and his wife, Jody Cleary have traveled extensively for the past 19 years conducting long form video interviews with reputed "Holy" people. Many of these interviews are with followers of Holy Man, Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Other stories are about noted spiritual figures and local and global individuals who have compelling personal stories to share.

The stories reported within these interviews nearly always embody the important eastern spiritual concept of advaita, oneness, non-duality. Those interviewed include Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and non believers as well.

Ted and Jody work as a team seeking and locating people whose lives have been transformed by mystical, religious or spiritual pursuit. Thus far they have recorded more than a hundred and twenty interviews, many or which they hope to post here. Watch for them, they will likely be under the banner of: Souljourns.

One of the purposes here is to include comments and lessons from spiritual minded people who demonstrate minimal ego and maximum humility, compassion, understanding, peace and love.

In their dozens of trips abroad, as well as around America, Ted and Jody have found many individuals whose stories of devotion and spiritual seeking are inspiring, loving and transformative.
