Spontaneous Evolution: A Universal Love Story
by Steve Bhaerman

At a time when our world faces multiple crises, here is some good news: We are on the threshold of evolving into a new super-organism called Humanity. Author, humorist and practical philosopher Steve Bhaerman offers an inspiring presentation based on the book Deepak Chopra has called "world-changing": Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, co-authored with noted cellular biologist Bruce Lipton. Combining Bruce's work as a biological scientist, and Steve's background as a political scientist, this talk is an invitation to participate in the greatest adventure in human history -- conscious evolution!
Some of what will be covered in this keynote:
  • How our current crises – economic, ecological, political and spiritual – are opportunities for evolution and transformation.
  • The four pillars of modern scientific materialism – the current dominant paradigm – that have been disproved by science.
  • Why the story of evolution really is a universal love story.
  • What we can learn from the caterpillar and butterfly, and how to become part of this new butterfly organism.
  • A three-step plan for living this evolutionary new reality NOW.

  • Wake Up Laughing, Wise Up Loving

    An Enlightening and Inspiring Playshop
    with Steve Bhaerman, aka Swami Beyondananda

    In these times of great upheaval – not to mention “downheaval” – we are nourished by love and laughter. This heart-opening and mind-expanding playshop led by Steve Bhaerman will help you wake up laughing and wise up loving.

    You may know of Steve’s work in the guise of Swami Beyondananda. For nearly 25 years, the Swami has been a fount of comedy disguised as wisdom – or is it wisdom disguised as comedy? Noted author Marianne Williamson has called him “the Mark Twain of our generation” because the comedy isn’t just hilariously funny, but also offers sharp social commentary and spiritual perspective.

    However, there’s another side to Swami. His alter ego Steve Bhaerman recently completed a book with cellular biologist Bruce Lipton (The Biology of Belief) that offers a truly heartening view of our evolutionary future based both on modern science and ancient wisdom. The book, Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here, has been called “world-changing” both by spiritual luminary Deepak Chopra and political commentator Thom Hartmann.

    Here’s some of what you will learn in this interactive playshop:
  • How to use the power of humor to gain relief, release, perspective and creative insight.
  • How to tap the universal harmonic of love and create what the Swami calls “om field advantage.”
  • How to weave your mission, vision, gifts and talents into the “web of mass-construction” as the evolutionary new world emerges.

  • Wake Up Laughing, Wise Up Loving will offer both the perspective and the tools to navigate these evolutionary times. Not only will you get an encouraging take on what would appear to be discouraging news worldwide, you will help develop some key inner resources to help you be a beacon for yourself and others during challenging times. You’ll laugh while you learn, and learn while you laugh!

    STEVE BHAERMAN is an internationally known author, humorist, and workshop leader. For the past 23 years, he has written and performed as Swami Beyondananda, the "Cosmic Comic." Swami's comedy has been called "irreverently uplifting" and has been described both as "comedy disguised as wisdom" and "wisdom disguised as comedy."

    As the Swami, Steve is the author of Driving Your Own Karma (1989), When You See a Sacred Cow, Milk It For All It's Worth (1993), Duck Soup for the Soul (1999) and Swami for Precedent: A 7-Step Plan to Heal the Body Politic and Cure Electile Dysfunction (2004).

    In his "past life" (before Swami), Steve started an alternative high school in Washington, D.C. and co-authored a book about his experiences, No Particular Place to Go: Making of a Free High School. A political science major, he later taught history to autoworkers at Wayne State University in Detroit as part of the Weekend College. In 1980, Steve co-founded Pathways Magazine in Ann Arbor, Michigan, one of the first publications bringing together holistic health, personal growth, spirituality, and politics. Subsequent to Pathways, Steve was a freelance writer and co-author with Don McMillan of Friends and Lovers: How to Meet the People You Want to Meet (Writer's Digest Books, 1986).

    Since 2005, Steve has written a political blog with a spiritual perspective, Notes From the Trail, hailed as an encouraging voice "in the bewilderness." His latest book, written with cellular biologist Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here (Hay House, 2009). Steve is active in transpartisan politics and the practical application of Spontaneous Evolution. He can be found online at www.wakeuplaughing.com.
