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.

Helping Teens and Young Adults

Today was a replay of our May 22, 2015 show with Laura G. Wright. Laura is a mentor and coach who supports young adults to become the architects of their lives. According to her bio, she wants to live in a world where looking at cute pictures of animals counts as exercise, Coldplay frequently shows up at her house to hang out and put on concerts in her living room, and complete strangers smile and wave at each other for no reason.
With over fifteen years of experience working with teenagers, she has developed a coaching and mentoring program for high school students, and has written workshops for parents of teenagers to guide them in making wise investments in their children’s future. She has also been featured as a guest on the Hunterdon Chamber Radio show Living Consciously, where she has shared her expertise in working with young adults. She has received the Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction Award, and in 2011 was nominated for Teacher of the Year.
You can find her hanging out with her phenomenal husband, unabashedly digging through celebrity gossip online, and taking a bajillion photos of every single adorable thing her cats do. Discover her mission to help teens and young adults at her website: www.buildingthebridge.us

Boys to Men Mentoring Network

We talked with Joe Sigurdson today! Joe is the co-founder of the "Boys to Men Mentoring Network" a nonprofit organization supporting boys who are challenged in today's society. With 33 centers across the globe, the vision of Boys to Men is "to create communities of men who teach, support, mentor and encourage boys to become compassionate and accountable men." Joe was a teenage father. He and Nancy, his wife of 39 years, have two children and seven grandchildren. An active member of Alcoholics Anonymous with 27 years of sobriety, he has been active in the Mankind Project doing interpersonal work for the past 21 years. His experiences in both these programs have given him insight to what he believes is lacking in our society, especially teenage boys. He has worked with thousands of men and boys around the world. He knows that inside every boy is a desire to be a good man. Boys to Men has developed its approach in helping boys become better men by listening, accepting and admiring them for who they are. These principles are the result of Joe’s path through life and recovery.
