The Rebels for Peace and Brian Gleason

The Rebels for Peace and Brian Gleason

June 2, 2020

In today's episode, we have a beautiful conversation between Dajohn White and Prince Jimmar from the Rebels for Peace in Chicago and Brian Gleason, an LA-based therapist who's been working with youth for over 20 years. We're excited about this one, as it is really candid conversation between people from different backgrounds, ages, and upbringing that discussed our common humanity, connection, and resilience. It shows how we can connect in both joy and in struggle. 

Brian brings his own beautiful and personal story of learning how to accept himself fully and how the struggles he had as a young kid was what later drew him to working with young people and supporting them - and in the end making it his lifes work. The Rebels for Peace share from their perspective of growing up as a young person in South-side Chicago and how that experience inspired them to now be leaders of youth. We love how these seemingly different people can have the same story and the metaphor that can be for mending a divided society.

IOS-Webinar 3: Bringing it all together with Q/A

March 20, 2020

PS! We are sorry to say that the event we are referring to in this webinar was canceled due to the recent pandemic, but we hope to set up a new one very soon. If you're interested in the event or have any questions or want to get involved with the IOS collective, please send an email to 

In our final webinar in our webinar series with the IOS collective, it's all about the participants. We want to highlight the simplicity of the change all of us can do
both inside ourselves and in relation to the world. We got some great questions regarding addictions, what's needed to get started helping people, the fears we are up against,
and sharing experiences working in schools, prisons, and communities. 

We hope after these 3 webinars you are closer to see our common humanity and connection, and how seeing more of that is the key to be helping facilitate change
anywhere, anytime with anyone. 

Thank you so much for your participation.

IOS-Webinar 2: Stories of transformation

IOS-Webinar 2: Stories of transformation

March 19, 2020

This is the second webinar in the 3 part series on Collective Community Change we did with the IOS Collective.

In this webinar we dove deeper into the stories of change we've seen in our work, and how those stories can be scaled and happen to anyone. 
We firmly believe that change is something that is possible for everyone, and that a new thought and a new life is just around the corner. We've seen that no matter
the circumstance, backround, situation or past experiences, we can all shift. And what we're looking for is already inside of us, it's not something we have to manufacture. 
As with these webinars you will hear a wide range of stories, but we invite you too see beyond the personal and find what is universal and true for everyone. 

See you on the next one!

Ayanna and Garret talk about the mind and music

Ayanna and Garret talk about the mind and music

May 4, 2019

This is a recording of a conversation between Mara, Eirik, Ayanna and Garret.

Ayanna and Garret are two very wise Chicago youth, that's involved in Rebels for Peace, as well as their own initiatives in trying to make change. In this podcast you hear what they've seen about their own potential to make change, how they use their mind, and how they want to inspire others to do the same. You hear how growing up in Chicago South Side has a lot of temptation where the mind could go in the violent direction, but also how they were able to stay on a more positive path. They also share their inspirations, ranging from their parents and mentors to artists that use their platform to convey a positive message. Garret even does a live performance for us, sharing powerful words of wisdom through music.

PS! The audio from this one is not optimal, but we hope you can hear through it and you enjoy. Just put your headset on and enjoy :)

Any Problem on Any Scale webinar

Any Problem on Any Scale webinar

April 16, 2019

In the second webinar of this series from Accelerating Change, we explored the topic Any Problem on Any Scale. We explore how no matter the scale, the source of change is the same: If we work from the human dimension and from the perspective our mind and our interconnectedness, all change becomes easier. If we ignore our minds, everything becomes harder. The mind is the thing that softens change, and the good news is, it doesn't matter how BIG the problem seems. We will explore this phenomenon all the way from the personal to the global!

You can listen to this podcast or watch the videoversion on youtube. If you want to go in depth in this subject, you can join our online course here:

The next recording will give you some real life examples, of what we discussed in this webinar, so we hope you look forward to that!

The Mind and the world Webinar

The Mind and the world Webinar

April 15, 2019

This is the audio recording of a webinar series about Accelerating Change.
In the first recording of of this 3-part series, we explored the topic The Human Mind and the World, which is what our first module of
Accelerating Change is all about.

You can get a sense of it by listening the recording of the webinar, or take a much deeper dive in the full online course, which has 7 separate video lessons that explore:

  • The mind is the source of the state of the world (not a symptom of it),
  • All humans construct their own unique version of reality
  • Beyond our differences, we are all one
  • Resilience is innate to all life, and
  • We can't escape the fact that we all have unique minds, but we can understand it.  Understanding the mind is the key to making change in the world.
