Keegan Kuhn (vegan) – On a Mission to Better the World through Films and Music, Part 1 of 2

We are honored to feature the award-winning filmmaker and acclaimed musician, Mr. Keegan Kuhn from Arizona, United States. Two of his feature-length documentaries, “Cowspiracy - The Susainability Secret” and “What the Health,” have gained international recognition as major difference makers in our battle against the world’s critical climate emergency. What many people may not know is that Mr. Kuhn is also a professional singer who has been touring with his band “xTrue Naturex” since 2008, raising public awareness about the plight of trillions of land and aquatic animals annually exploited for human use. Through their documentaries, Keegan and Kip pinpointed the livestock industry as the single most destructive force on the planet today. Through the process of making the films Cowspiracy and What the Health Keegan became convinced that the way to save our planet from this insidious industry is to mobilize the power of consumers.

Keegan Kuhn (vegan) - On a Mission to Better the World Through Films and Music, Part 2 of 2

On today’s program, we will continue with our tribute to the talented filmmaker and musician Keegan Kuhn, from California, USA. Mr. Kuhn is the founder of First Spark Media, a film production company dedicated to social justice causes. When “Cowspiracy” premiered in June 2014, Keegan and Kip did not expect that it would become such a global sensation. Thanks to the success of their films, Keegan and Kip became sought-after speakers around the world. Keegan is also Keenly aware that we are fast running out of time to save the planet. “We are in really dire times. We’re in the largest mass extinction the planet has seen in 65 million years. We are dealing with unprecedented ecological collapse, and I thank it’s really important that we take that seriously, and that we address it. And the biggest thing any of us can do is to adopt a vegan lifestyle.” In parting, we would like to invite you to enjoy a song rendered by Keegan, named “For the Innocent.” “With the callus of a slaughterhouse worker, For the billions senselessly murdered, I am vegan. I am vegan for the innocent.”

Saving the Gran Chaco Forest with Fiorella Migliore

Saving the Gran Chaco Forest with Fiorella Migliore

In today’s program, we will introduce Fiorella Migliore, a Paraguayan model, beauty queen, actress, television presenter and vegan activist. Fiorella, or Fio, won the 2008 Miss Italia Paraguay and the 2012 Miss World Paraguay. Learning about the direct impact of our food choice on the environment and health first-hand, Fio felt obliged to raise awareness about it to her fellow Paraguayans, so she partnered with Kip Anderson to produce a documentary, From Paraguay With Love. Paraguay With Love focuses on the environmental and humanitarian crisis happening in Paraguay due to “The Green Revolution,” Which is the rapid expansion of soy agri-faming in the Gran Chaco Forest, the second largest forest in South America next to the Amazon. Fio hopes to educate the public on their food choices, which has caused the deforestation of Paraguay, and has forced more than 585,000 people to leave their land in the last ten years. Also, the health-hazards of pesticides have caused many serious diseases, and even deaths. We are hopeful that Fio’s message will be heard and that it will create a ripple effect on farming, as more farmers are switching from livestock raising to organic vegetable farming, not only in Paraguay but all around the world.

The Magic Elixir of Health with Plant-Based Dietitian Julieanna Hever (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Across medical fields worldwide, more health practitioners are turning to the plant-based diet solution to help people to improve their wellness and treat diseases. Among them, is Julieanna Hever, a registered dietitian from the United States. She is the author of four books, has published two peer-reviewed medical journal articles, and is the nutrition columnist for VegNews Magazine. Her powerful TEDx talk impacted hundreds of thousands of viewers. “I just so passionate about nutrition and I loved it. And I found out, wow, you can actually get protein better from plants, and you can get a better source of iron from plants, and all of those questions that I was concerned about previously, I was completely satisfied and completely comfortable to switch myself over to a plant-based diet. And then I started implementing it with my clients and the differences in their results were literally night and day.” “Everyone feels better eating a plant-based diet. They notice a quicker recovery, so it’s a wonderful way to boost your performance naturally without any supplements or substances and it’s just a really healthy way.” “It’s a tome of facts and we synthesized a lot of information in our ‘Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition.’ So, it’s really like all the whys and all the hows in an easy, digestible book.”

The Magic Elixir of Health with Plant-Based Dietitian Julieanna Hever (vegan), Part 2 of 2

To begin today’s episode, Julieanna shares how her vegan journey started from her compassion towards animals. “I have compassion for animals. I started this myself, personally, for animals and of course, the environment, but l also, and obviously, then the health benefits are wonderful, icing on the cake. But if you want to help animals, you also want people to be healthy too and I care about people too, and so we say we want to put the human back in humane and we want people to eat a healthy diet and have their health too.” Here we share with you, awakened viewers, Julieanna’s powerful worlds on rethinking the connection between humans and the food we consume. “I challenge you all, to consider not only what you eat, but also how you eat, to eat with intention, awareness, consciousness. Change you world and your inter-connectivity with others by basing your diet on whole plant foods.”Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present Julieanna Hever, the Shining World Compassion Award, with all love, respect, and best wishes for your continued success. May your bountiful energy, important vegan diet-promoting efforts and overflowing joy continue touching hearts and radiating forward to brighten lives in this world.”

Monk Coleman (vegan) – From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Enlightenment, Part 1 of 2

00:11:35

Monk Coleman (vegan) – From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Enlightenment, Part 1 of 2

We are so happy to feature the colorful life of vegan bodybuilder, life-style coach and meditation instructor, Monk Coleman, previously known as Joe Coleman. Mr. Coleman’s story paints an arc from difficult beginnings as a directionless young man who got entangled in addiction and the criminal world, to rediscovering and trusting his inner voice, guiding him to become the compassionate, vibrant vegan success he embodies today. Before fully adopting his new name, Monk underwent some profound changes in his consumption habits. Over time and through meditation, he discarded all unhealthy practices, including eating meat or any other animal products. After he stopped eating meat, Monk felt sure that he was no longer hurting anyone. A few years later though, when he started to notice the word “vegan” appearing more often during his research into vegetarian bodybuilding, he began to dig deeper, only to discover the sad truth about the processes behind other animal products, such as eggs and milk. In a 2019 motivational clip for Shining World Compassion Award recipient, Mercy For Animals, Monk shared his experiences of meditation, becoming vegan and plant-based bodybuilding. “Basically, through my meditation practice, I became reconnected to all life and didn’t want to do any harm to any other beings, and at that moment, I became vegan.” Mr. Coleman, an IFPA (International Federation of Physique Athletes) Pro and WNBF (World Natural Bodybuilding Federation) champion in Natural Physique, attributes his success in bodybuilding to the tried and tested characteristics of consistency, hard work, commitment, as well as his switch to the plant-strong diet. Monk said: “It was about one year after turning vegan that my body started to change some. I got leaner, healthier, more energetic, and I healed quicker. It felt good.” Monk recommends the following to people wanting to go vegan today: “My advice for anybody that wants to go vegan is to do some research. There are all kinds of good information out there. There’s nothing bad about going vegan. In fact, just the opposite, it’s a win-win-win, for the animals, your health, and the planet.”

Monk Coleman (vegan) - From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Englightenment, Part 2 of 2

Monk believes there is a purpose for everything, including his dark experiences. Let’s hear about his self-realization from his soul searching through meditation. “So, all the things, I look back now, it’s not about poor me, or being a victim. It’s like, wow, I needed every bit of this, so I can live my purpose and share this with the world. ‘My purpose here is to bring this message to you while pointing you in the direction of unconditional love, which brings transformation so that you will realize your full unlimited potential.’” This is truly an inspiring goal and altruistic endeavor by Joe, the “Vegan Monk” Coleman. So, how would Monk encourage our viewers to change if some are still undecided about the consumption of alcohol, tobacco and other substances, and how would he inspire them to try to find answers from within, through meditation? “Anything we do destructive to ourselves, there's a reason why we're doing it. Each individual has a different path to getting to that point where they don't need the alcohol, they don't need the drugs, they don’t need the cigarettes, they don't need all the distractions that they have, to not feel what they’re feeling. So, the more you sit, the more things become calm.” Monk believes that the integration of meditation into one’s daily life is the most effective way to achieve freedom from the noisy influences of the world around us. Monk brings his enthusiasm and wisdom to outreach at health and wellness venues, schools and rehabilitation centers, to name a few. He is also writing a book, Love Over Fear-10 Steps to a Purpose Filled Life, soon to be published. He is on the mission of guiding and uplifting others with the messages of compassion and love, as well as motivating others to become their brighter and better selves, both physically and spiritually. As a father, Monk’s approach to teaching his children is to act as an example, allowing them to be themselves rather than enforcing his ideas into their minds. He believes that some form of celestial knowledge and experience is bestowed on children when they arrive here, or even before. Monk Coleman has remarkably transformed his life from darkness to the journey towards enlightenment, and has been experiencing the connection to his inner wisdom through meditation. Thank you, Monk, for sharing your generous and loving heart with others to help make this world a better place for humans and animals alike.

The Crosby Family: Icons of Compassion, Conviction, and Faith, Part 1 of 2

The Crosby Family: Icons of Compassion, Conviction, and Faith, Part 1 of 2

On today’s episode, we meet Dr. Spice Williams-Crosby, an award-winning American actress, professional stuntwoman, and martial arts expert with a PhD in Natural Health Sciences. As we begin, Spice shares how she discovered her life mission during a near death experience which led her to the spiritual path. “My twin sister and I were always performing, and then I got a call one day to go on the road as a musician. And they were looking for two twins who could sing and dance in a group. My twin sister sang and played really great guitar. And I was on the piano doing all the wild and crazy numbers. That’s why they said. ‘Oh, you’re the spicy one.’ But the arts have always been in my soul.” For the next seven years, Spice travelled and sang with the “Sugar and Spice” band but life on the road took its toll, and she became addicted to both drugs and alcohol. One day in, desperation, she reached out to God. “And at that point I started searching. I put my medical blinders off, I went into holistic, homeopathic, I went to a chiropractor, I started changing my life around, changing my diet, and hoping to spiritually arrive, I arose, I became in my search what I am today.” True to her promise to God, Spice did turn her life around. She adopted a compassionate, noble vegan lifestyle, and began a strenuous regime of martial arts training and bodybuilding. Over time, she became a professional stuntwoman and a highly successful actress. “So here I was, 52 years old, a vegan, chosen to represent these great athletes.” Spice continually sets an excellent example for others, spiritually, mentally and physically. She is grateful for her strong, healthy body. “I also believe that this envelope of flesh that is a gift that I chose to reincarnate into, I have a responsibility to keep it healthy in order for me to stay connected with God.”

The Crosby Family: Icons of Compassion, Conviction, and Faith, Part 2 of 2

On today’s program, we meet the rest of this multi-talented, compassionate family: Spice’s husband, Mr. Gregory Crosby, and their handsome son, Luke. Gregory Crosby’s passion for the arts began in childhood, inspired by his grandfather, legendary singer, comedian and actor, Mr. Bing Crosby. Over the years, Mr. Crosby has written 25 screenplays, 10 treatments for TV shows, TV movies, feature films, and 5 television “bibles,” or documents providing detailed descriptions of characters, settings, and other elements of a project. Let’s now meet the youngest member of this remarkable family, Luke Gregory Crosby. Like his parents, Luke is passionate about the entertainment world and is a professional stuntman, writer and actor. Being vegan since birth, he keeps himself in top condition through martial arts practice and holds a Black Belt in Arjukanpo. More recently, through Make-Believe Entertainment, Luke joined the rest of the Crosby family to create an inspiring film, “Talk to the Animals.” Produced by Gregory Crosby and starring both Luke and Spice, the film tells a story about communing with nature and animals as a way to grow closer to God. Then, on October 1, 2019, he met Master in person, when Luke and his mother attended the “Friends of Eternity” celebration in the New Land Ashram in Taiwan (Formosa). The two shared some happy moments together. “Supreme Master, since I was 13, when I first met You, You’ve become an idol, (Oh, really?) As a child, I grew up with type 1 diabetes and with certain health elements, (I remember.) realizing that veganism truly has a power, not only with your body but spiritually, and that's healing. (Everything is perfect.) And because of that, my health has been perfect ever since. (Wow! I am so glad.) So, thank You, thank You for everything.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 1 of 3

00:12:25

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Today, we are delighted to introduce Tabitha Brown – an actress and vegan influencer who has amassed over 3 million followers on the social networking platform, TikTok. She is also a popular content creator on YouTube, a brand ambassador for Whole Foods Market and all things plant-based, and an extraordinary vegan cook. Buoyed by her effervescent energy, charming voice, and her soulful encouragement, TikTok fans have referred to her as “Mom” or “Auntie” and send her messages of thanks for making them feel loved and comforted. Tabitha made the transition to a vegan diet after experiencing a lengthy period of ill-health. Fortunately, Tabitha’s daughter, Choyce, came home one day with some information that would radically change Tabitha’s life. “My daughter came home from school - teenage daughter - and she said, ‘Mom, you have got to see this documentary we watched at school called “What the Health”.’ So, we all together watched it, my husband and my daughter - and I was like, ‘Wow this is interesting!’ But the thing that got me was when they said that diseases are not hereditary; it’s that we’re eating the same thing causing the same disease.” “When I looked at everything, ‘meat’ was the common denominator. And so, I told my husband, ‘Let’s do a 30-day challenge.’ I’m going to take meat out of the diet. And the doctors couldn’t tell me what was wrong. Every test I would take, ‘Oh, it’s normal!’, but why am I still feeling sick?” To her surprise and immense relief, after nineteen months of debilitating pain and fatigue, the vegan diet was the key to restoring her health, and giving Tabitha her life back. “And so, we decided as a family, to do a 30-day vegan challenge and on day 10, my headaches went away. I was walking through my kitchen and I was like, ‘my head ain’t hurting.’ I started feeling better from that day. I started getting my energy back, I started just feeling like myself again. On day 29, I told my husband, I said, I think this is my path, I’m going vegan.” Tabitha’s sincere faith in God, guided her from ill-health to become an internet celebrity with millions of followers and the success that she could never have imagined. It’s as our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has explained regarding Matthew 6:33 in the Holy Bible: “Once God takes charge, once God awakens within you, everything else will be taken care of. ‘Seek you first the Kingdom of God, and all the things shall be added unto you.’ (Matthew 6:33, The Holy Bible) That's what it really means.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Vegan Influencer Award to Ms. Tabitha Brown, with all love and gratitude. May God forever protect and bless you.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 2 of 3

After watching the documentary “What the Health” and becoming a vegan, Tabitha regained her health and positivity. As a woman of faith, Tabitha received the message to share what she was eating via videos, which she is still doing to this day, with great success as unexpected opportunities presented themselves. “But I honestly feel like, ever since I've been on this journey, it just started shinning brighter. I truly believe I’m on assignment. I started this journey to save my life, but now, I’m helping to save other people's and I think that's the amazing part of it, so it definitely brought my spirituality and my assignment together and I cannot deny that, and I love it.” Having been raised in a Christian family, Tabitha feels that eating vegan is what was intended for us, just like food from the Garden of Eden. “I believe that we are supposed to eat from the land, and I believe that eating from the land heals us. I know it healed me. I don't judge anybody for their belief, but you have to believe what your body tells you.” Since becoming a vegan, Tabitha’s spirituality has flourished. Being so vibrant, she creates soulful, timely and welcome positive-mindset messages for her social media followers, whom she refers to as her “family.” “Because life is peaks and valleys, ups and downs, and we have to focus on knowing that the ‘up’ is coming again. And that's just how I live my life.” “If I lead by example and I do it with love, it’ll change the mind of people, because if you get somebody’s heart, then, they'll listen to you.” Tabitha Brown’s light shines brightly, and her powerful messages of self-love, self-compassion, kindness and resilience are a treasure for everyone.

Victoria Featherstone Pearce (vegan) and K-9 Angels, Part 1 of 2

Victoria Featherstone Pearce (vegan) and K-9 Angels, Part 1 of 2

Today, we are glad to introduce you to Ms. Victoria Featherstone Pearce, who is an award-winning model, actress, TV host, animal activist and co-founder of the dog rescue charity K-9 Angels. Ms. Pearce always uses her voice whenever possible, to bring awareness to others about the importance of caring for our defenseless animals. “And I literally, at the age of six or seven, I stopped eating meat all together. I basically said to my mum, I’m not going to eat animals anymore. For me, the strong connection with animals was there from a very young age, and I became vegetarian. When I was 33, I discovered the dark side of dairy, and I decided that I was going to be vegan, I wasn’t going to have dairy anymore.” Eight years ago, Ms. Pearce started the dog rescue charity K-9 Angels with her friends. Finding the right home for a rescued dog is essential. K-9 Angels has made this one of their missions, to ensure the dogs they saved are well taken care of, and live in harmony with their newly found families. “It’s really about matching the right home to the dog and that’s how we do things. We are very stringent on our home checks that we do, so we don’t just willingly just give out dogs; they have to go through a home check and everything is taken into consideration, from the size of the fence, to how long they’re at home, how many children they have, would they understand a dog’s needs.” Many studies show that adopting a shelter dog has numerous benefits, such as relieving stress, improving one’s health, making people happier and more active and the best part is knowing that you are guaranteed love and companionship from your new furry family member. “In the UK, I believe there’s around 120,000 dogs up and down the country in shelters right now that are begging for homes, so that breaks my heart. On a daily basis I think of those dogs and I just think all they want is to be loved. All they want is to sit on a sofa, and someone to cuddle them. For me, helping those dogs means the absolute the world to me. It’s made me look at life differently as well, and have more compassion for everything and everybody. Seeing the dogs suffer has made me realize just how lucky I am and it makes you reflect on your own life as well. It just puts a perspective on what life is really all about. I think we should help one another and help where we can, and by doing that we help ourselves.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Through prayer, Tabitha received the message to share with others what she was eating as a vegan. Adopting the plant-based diet reversed her debilitating, mystery illness that had left her largely incapacitated for nineteen months. But upon reflection, Tabitha noted that there were other signs showing that eating animal derived foods were causing her harm. Regarding a plant-based diet, Tabitha wisely suggests, “Know your why” for going vegan. From personal experiences, she knows how many health benefits can come from the vegan diet and the immense impact to one’s life. Tabitha is also a very creative individual, from acting, to creating T-shirts, and even designing stunning waist capes for women called “Capeable by Tabitha Brown.” Tabitha is also a comedian, and has been cast in many films, including the multiple award-winning “I Am Still Here,” “Laughing to the Bank,” and others. “Listen, without art, it's a cold world, honey. Art helps us escape. It helps us dream. It helps us see things in a different way. Art is everything, like our life is art.” “Art is laughter, it is tears, it’s emotion, it’s everything that makes the world go around and without it, it’s a dark place. So I feel like, I'm living art, that's kind of how I live my life, I'm expressive. You know, I'm full of laughter and smiles and art is love, and that's definitely the best part of me, is the love. When you spread love, right? Like you’re smiling now, ‘cuz I'm smiling, right? That's art. So, my artistry is contagious. So yeah, I love it. Even as an actor, I love comedy.” Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken on several occasions about artists and the importance of art in our lives, as in this conference with Aulacese (Vietnamese) artists in 2018. “The artists are the ones who bring a lot of mental and physical comfort, a lot of happiness, a lot of joy, to the people in this world. An artist is someone who comforts our spirit, and is indispensable in this life. Why don’t we thank them? We should at least have gratitude.”

The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 1 of 2

The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 1 of 2

Today, we are honored to share with you the story of a very special family, husband and wife team, Mr. Seth Goldman and Ms. Julie Farkas, together with their eldest son Jonah Goldman, who are changing the world with their golden hearts and determined actions to promote a sustainable, vegan and equitable world for all. 'Eat the change you wish to see in the world' – a witty play on words by Jonah on the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi's “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” At the height of success of Honest Tea, in 2012, one day, his wife Julie commented to him on the concept and plans of the plant-based food company – Beyond Meat. Seth quickly realized that such a company will have a far-reaching and globally significant impact on reducing the exaggerated reliance on animal agriculture and also protect the environment. “And what I found, is people don't have an innate need to kill animals; that's not an imperative, but survival and nutrition are. So, if we can create plant-based alternatives that taste as good, then we see a very good response. What’s so exciting to see consumers are choosing this approach. So I’m excited to see it’s happening. And when you have the consumers on your side, good things happen.” As of 2020, in less than eight years, since its products launched in the consumer market, Beyond Meat has become a worldwide phenomenon, now reaching around the globe and available in over 50 international markets, with over 27,000 distribution points, including now being offered in Starbucks chains in certain cities of China. The power of this social action has been powerfully evident during the lockdown situation in the USA, in response to the COVID-19, where a Bloomberg article reported that sales of plant-based meat substitutes increased 264% compared to before the lockdowns, an indicator that more Americans are concerned about the effects of their food choices towards the planet and their own health. Riding on the success of both Honest Tea and Beyond Meat, Seth and his family began discussing how they could create even more positive impact, on an even larger scale by including education as well as products. Together with Jonah, the planetary activist in the family, they decided to start a new venture, Eat the Change. Eat the Change's mission is to create a platform to deal with climate change and environmental destruction through the most powerful and immediately implementable change an individual can make – dietary change.

Victoria Featherstone Pearce (vegan) and K-9 Angels, Part 2 of 2

In the first episode, Ms. Pearce shared with us about K-9 Angels’ re-homing project for their rescued dogs. Today, she will tell us about another of their important projects that allows for more canine lives to be saved from suffering. “I think in the beginning of the charity and like most people, when you see a dog in distress, you just want to pick them all up and get them into homes. But as you go along you start thinking with your head rather than with your heart, and you realize that if you really want to make a huge impact in the lives of dogs, the best thing you can do is sterilize them all. I’ve seen it firsthand, that puppies have been born on the streets, to die on the streets at a very, very young age.” “I believe for one un-spayed dog, they can have up to 67,000 puppies in six years. So that means their puppies and their puppies and their puppies, if they carried on having babies, would have up to 67,000 puppies in six years. So, you can imagine, just by spaying one dog, you are potentially saving so many dogs from being born on the streets.” To contribute even more with the fundraising, Ms. Pearce has taken on many challenges herself including cycling hundreds of miles, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro twice and wing walking on a bi-plane. Despite all the challenges she has to go through to alleviate the suffering of our loving, cherished canine friends, she is delighted to do so. In addition to their hands-on work, K-9 Angels is involved in activities that bring awareness and education to others. As a leader in dog welfare, it also attends the UK Parliament. “K-9 Angels have been attending Parliament now for the last, I think, six years. Now mainly, we’ve been supporting, a campaign called Lucy’s Law and Pup Aid, and it’s to stop the sale of third-party puppies being sold. We have been attending many meetings to have a law, which is now in place called ‘Lucy’s Law.’ So, now people can’t sell puppies that are third party sales.” “Yeah, I think Lucy’s law is probably the biggest success that we’ve been involved in.” Ms. Pearce reminds us how self-fulfilling it is to share love and compassion with others, including our animal companions. “My message would be that, I just feel that when we give to people, or give to others, or give to animals, we are giving to ourselves. And I think the more you are nicer to other people, and you spread love and you spread happiness, it all comes back to you.”

The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 2 of 2

Having gained valuable experience working at Beyond Meat, Jonah saw the opportunity to begin a new vegan fast food restaurant concept, and together with the family, they conceptualized PLNT Burger. "We want to be a business for 'good.' We want to create a culture of designing businesses that benefit people, that benefit animals and the environment." "And what our mission is at PLNT Burger is to help people transition towards a more plant-based diet, to create a more just and equitable plentiful food system for all, and a healthier planet for future generations." The first PLNT Burger outlet opened in 2019. PLNT Burger is positioned as a “casual-fast food restaurant,” featuring vegan burgers with Beyond Meat vegan burger patties, as well as their own unique creations. Four stores were opened in the first nine-months of operations, riding on the power of Whole Foods Market as a strategic partner location. PLNT Burger keeps all the dishes very affordable to the masses, and has been receiving tons of positive public responses and appraisals. As a young entrepreneur, Jonah shares his strong beliefs and urges the next generation and society as a whole to act now and be the change we wish to see at this urgent time for our planet. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Goldman family, founders of Eat the Change and PLNT Burger, the Shining World Compassion Award, with all love, respect, and best wishes for your continued success. May your noble path be paved with God's immense blessings and grace.”

A Journey to Veganism with Selene Nelson, Part 1 of 2

A Journey to Veganism with Selene Nelson, Part 1 of 2

Selene Nelson is an author, freelance journalist and vegan activist. Her latest book, Yes Ve-Gan! is a well written guide on how and why to go vegan. Selene Nelson was a vegetarian up to 2017, when she made the transition to veganism. Let’s find out what motivated Selene to make such a change. “What motivated me to become vegan was my love for animals, first and foremost. I was already vegetarian, when I went vegan, because I’d seen slaughterhouse footage and I thought I just don’t want any part of that but it’s very easy to look away from the dairy industry and the egg industry. I did that very successfully for quite a few years and it got to a point where I couldn’t look away anymore and I confronted the reality of these industries and once you see the footage and you are aware of how awful it is, I realized I would be just a real hypocrite if I decided dairy cows didn’t matter in the same way I thought beef cows did. So, it was just a decision I felt compelled to make.” “I wanted to travel and just experience life and it was that travel experience that made me become vegan. As soon as I did, I felt like I wanted to spread the message of veganism and let people know the reality of animal agriculture and allow people to make up their own minds, because I didn’t know any of that stuff before I was vegan and I think if I had that information I would’ve made the switch sooner, so I kind of felt it was my duty or my calling as cheesy as it might sound to actually use my journalism to spread that message.” Selene writes about the three main reasons for veganism: health, the environment, and animal ethics. Having travelled so extensively around the world, she shared with us how the vegan movement was reflected in all the various countries and cultures plus the reasons to motivate the success of veganism around the world. “I think definitely in the UK and the US there has been a strong interest in the health side of it, particularly recently. You have documentaries like the Game Changers on Netflix that are really popular and getting people to understand that vegan diet is not only healthy but it can actually be the best diet for you.”

A Journey to Veganism with Selene Nelson, Part 2 of 2

We spoke to Selene in early February, 2020, at the Plant Powered Expo in London, where we were so excited to learn about her new book Yes Ve-Gan! Let’s hear what she had to tell us about this exciting time in her life. “So my new book Yes Ve-Gan! was published a month ago and it’s a blueprint for vegan living, so it’s letting people know how they can make the change and also explaining why you would want to; so it does cover the three main points: health, the environment and animals. But the reason why I really wanted to write it was because I wanted to communicate the joy of veganism; how happy it makes you, just something I never anticipated.” “The biggest shock I had when I went vegan was how much I loved it and that’s something that I see reflected all the time in other vegans. Every vegan I know says their only regret is not doing it sooner and I think there is a reason for that.” In 2018, Selene found herself in the middle of a public media storm when William Sitwell, the editor of a highly respected publication, Waitrose Food magazine, ridiculed her pitch to publish a series of vegan recipes. The email mocking vegans made headlines prompting lots of conversations on mainstream news media. In the midst of the storm, Selene had the opportunity to meet with the editor and talk about veganism, which reached over 650 million views online. Looking back at this episode in her career, Selene said, “I definitely didn’t expect that reaction from the editor. But I also never could have anticipated how big the story became and how angry it made some people. And I did already know that veganism was a highly divisive subject, but what that issue really brought home was the fact that eating animals, or not eating animals, is an extremely contentious issue.” In fact, one year later, William and Selene ended up on the cover of ‘The Telegraph Magazine’ talking about veganism. The beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai applauds all the vegan media in the world, and had this to say at a climate change conference in Washington DC. “The media has a very important role in our society, everybody knows that. The printed words are very powerful. People are too busy with their daily activities, so they look to the media for informing and reporting relevant events, important matters, and all necessary information for their lives. So, the media is a useful tool to awaken one another at this crucial time: a time when our planet and the lives on it are in danger.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully presents the Shining World Courage & Compassion Award to Selene Nelson, with all love and high salute for your noble work. May you enjoy continued success and constant protection by Heaven.”

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 1 of 5

Running for Good – ‘Queen of the Extreme’ Fiona Oakes (vegan), Part 1 of 5

Today, it is our privilege to feature one of the top ultra-endurance athletes on the planet, Fiona Oakes, from Essex, England, UK. Fiona is one of the greatest athletes in the world judging by her records. She is the Guinness World Record holder for the fastest female in cumulative time to complete a marathon within the Antarctic Circle, as well as on the other six continents, at 23 hours, 27 minutes and 40 seconds. She also holds the Guinness World Records for the fastest female to complete a marathon on each of the seven continents plus the North Pole, in both aggregate time (28 hours, 20 minutes, and 50 seconds) and elapsed time (225 days and 18 hours). Fiona has been dubbed the “Queen of the Extreme” by her peers due to her grit in some of the most challenging races in the world. “I didn’t take to running because I wanted to run, I wanted to promote veganism and the benefits of a plant-based diet. I realized, I can rescue animals, and I can deliver harmonic existence for those in my care, but for the billions out there who are suffering, I can’t touch. How do I do that? And that was when I formulated the idea of going out and running. The reason was I wanted a platform to speak out.” “There was no social media at the time; the only thing that I was fairly good at was sports, but not running, but the only attention in sports for women was Paula Radcliffe who was running the marathon, and it had all kinds of hashtags, if you like. This is the toughest event in the athletic calendar, and if you can complete a marathon you can do anything.” Today, at the age of 51. Fiona’s running career remains in full swing. It is safe to say that she has proven what she had set out to prove: that a lifelong plant-based diet can sustain the highest levels of sports performance and physical health: “I am living proof of it, I’ve been running now for 20 years. I’ve got such versatility, and I am still doing it.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “With tears of love and awe, gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to Ms. Fiona Oakes, with heartfelt praises and sincere respect for all that you do for our precious animal friends and the planet, plus a gift of US$21,000 as a humble token of support for your noble work. May you have continued success in your heartfelt, touching and inspiring endeavors and may the Providence bless you and your loved ones forevermore. You are a Saint!”
