What a ride it has been for the past 3 months. Over 10 interviews here on Intention Radio with incredible souls from all walks of life who have joined us to share their passion for PEACE!

Today we meet with Steve Bhaerman (aka Swami Beyondananda) to talk about something many from the spritual community have forgotten: HUMOR. Life can be taken way to seriously some times and it requires reminders like this one to lighten things up a little. When was the last time you took a good look at yourself in the mirror and just smiled? For no reason, you just smiled from ear to ear.

This week we have the honor of interacting with Metta Center’s founder, Michael Nagler.

Join us on this journey on Peace in the Park with your host Emmanuel.
Our world has lost touch with the ancient wisdom our ancestors carried. We’ve lost ourselves in the bigger, better, super sized, faster, cheaper and it is costing us our planet! The Pachamama Alliance is an organization with it’s prime aim to protect and bring back the incredible wisdom of indigenous cultures. When the Western civilization invasively took over these tribes and robbed them of their resources, one of the tribes decided not to fight back and instead to create an alliance (this information was given to the tribe members in dreams). There was the birthing of an incredible merge between to worlds. Join Jon Symes, Outreach Director of the Pachamama Alliance as we dive deeper into the story and uncover the importance of this project in today’s world.
