What is "1000 Breaths"

On the last day of the year in 2010 and 2011, a special event called "1000 Breaths" awakened audiences to their own innate power of freedom as well as supported a movement to free the enslaved children trapped into a prostituted lifestyle they do not truly choose.

What started as the 1000 Breaths fundraiser event has become a movement for the freedom of us all. This blog expands now to encompass all the good works being done in the name of "freedom for all" as heard on the "FREEDOM FOR ALL" Internet Radio show.

On today's radio show we welcomed speaker, author, filmmaker Douglas Vermeeren. Talk about being in a state of freedom - he called into the show while just landing in his hometown of Calgary, as he stood up to get his luggage out of the upper bin. In the moment. The show was fun and inspiring. Doug talked about his book "Guerrilla Achiever" and what we can do to achieve more in our lives. We also looked at the barriers that sometimes hold us back. And we discussed his work in China as the first North American ever invited to speak to the Chinese Political Party and Educational leaders. Today's show is a must listen! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freedomforall/2012/06/29/guest-doug-vermeeren

Yesterday, Jim spoke to a group called the Sunset Poets, which meet monthly in Vista, CA. Jim's presentation - called "Write Your Self" - interspersed sharing, visualization, and experiential exercises with reading pieces of poetry from his book, Breadcrumbs: Poetry and Prose Designed to Lead You Home. The attendees loved it, even bringing some to tears.

Have you all heard of the Occupy Movement? We had, and we wanted to know more. We knew there were activists who were taking a stand in various cities for the power of the people in the face of a political environment of social and economic inequality. On this week's show, we welcomed Cristie Paris, who is part of the Media Committee for Occupy San Diego, which she officially joined on October 28, 2011. She works to spread the Occupy message far and wide using various social networks, offering a message of accountability for political and community leaders, and hope for a vision of creating a better world. It was great hearing her hands-on experience of what it is like out on the streets of protest, and what the movement is all about. Bottom line - freedom for all.

Last week Jim and I were in New York to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday so we just did a short 10 minute show during our travels… the free-est show ever we called it. This week we had an inspiring guest – musician Charley Thweatt. He told us all about giving up his cubical job to follow his calling as a musician. And thousandds of inspired fans are so glad he did. Charley’s music makes you feel good! The show ended with one of his uplifting tunes "I am the Wind." Check out the show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/​freedomforall/2012/06/15/​guest-charley-thweatt

What a fascinating show we had this week. Cass Smith is a person on the path of "liberation." Defined as "moksha," enlightenment, freedom from desires or freedom from suffering, liberation has been the focus of this spiritual seeker for over 40 years. Cass - a singer, seminar leader, healer has been a devotee of guru Sai Baba since the 1970's, having made pilgrimage trips to his India ashram every year. Married in 1989 to Shama, the two have worked together leading groups and individuals to their own spiritual liberation - using "rebirthing" breathwork, sacred teachings, meditation and emotional release techniques. We had a great conversation with Cass on Friday's "Freedom for All" as he dove deeply into what he believes people need to truly liberate themselves from suffering and the self-imposed limitations. Check it out to share in some deep contemplation: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/​freedomforall/2012/06/01/​guests-cass-and-shama-smith
