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.”

Tal Gilboa: At The Forefront of Inspiring Israel's Vegan Movement, Part 2 of 3

In 2013 Tal Gilboa co-founded “Israel Animal Liberation Front” which was renamed “Total Liberation Israel” in 2018. This is one of the fastest growing social movements of our time calling for the total liberation of animals everywhere through marches, rallies and blockading trucks to the slaughter houses etc. The animal justice movement is increasingly attracting adherents across Israel and the activism is paving the way for a new era in animal rights. Besides various initiatives including creative protests and demonstrations, Tal Gilboa was also delivering lectures to diverse audiences: from high-school students to the military, business and political decision-makers. Her passion for animal causes took her to face unchartered territory, to compete for the first time and won the 6th edition of the intense contest of HaAh HaGadol. “Half a million people changed their diet while I was there. And everything that I did was just to think about, ‘It's going to do good for the animals or not?’”

Kate Strong, Surpassing Barriers and Leaving Footsteps of Love, Part 2 of 2

Kate Strong, Surpassing Barriers and Leaving Footsteps of Love, Part 2 of 2

Although Kate lived a privileged life of comfort in her youth, her first sight of others in famine brought her to tears, and a deep-seated passion to serve and improve the quality of life for all beings was deeply instilled in her life values. Kate Strong has a befitting name for a motivation speaker and coach, but Kate explains that mental flexibility is also a strength, or even placing oneself in a situation that we haven’t experienced before and following our hearts. “Being strong isn’t being forceful. Being strong is actually a shift in consciousness. So, we need to step away from the win/lose model. We need to step away from telling, you know, forcefully doing things. I think the strongest thing we can do is pause, reflect and start listening to our heart. Everywhere in the world, we’re seeing more logical ways of being. We need to start feeling things, we need to go with the hearts leading, rather than our body being used as a vehicle to carry our all-important heads.” Supreme Master Ching Hai also agrees that even after enlightenment, one must make an effort to help the planet and all beings in every way possible, whether it be sharing good news or contributing in any positive way possible. “Sometimes, I go to a different restaurant outside, Thai restaurant, something special, I bought a lot, bring home to the staff. And every day I give some $100 Hong Kong Dollars to the cleaner in my room. I hide it inside the towel. So, whenever she takes the towel, ‘Ah!’ Surprised. I said, ‘Thank you for cleaning my room. God bless.’” “Make the best of your time when you’re out, smiling to people, strangers. ‘Hallo,’ ‘good day,’ whatever. Say hallo to your taxi driver, ask him if he is OK, wish him luck for his business. Shake hands with your doorman, your concierge, where you live, in your building. Say hallo, smile big. Bring him a piece of (vegan) chocolate or something. Make the best of your time. Spread love. Don’t be afraid. That’s what you should do.” Kate Strong takes these words to heart as she makes it a daily habit to lift people’s moods and bring a smile wherever she may be.

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

00:13:50

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 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.

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 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.”

Emma Hurst – Unequivocal Voice for the Animals, Part 1 of 2

The Honorable Emma Hurst is a member of the Australian state of New South Wales’ Legislative Council where she uses this platform to tirelessly campaign for animal protection reform and animal rights. Ms. Hurst is also a long time vegan, plant-based bodybuilder and a registered psychologist. “I didn’t want to kill animals. I had no idea that even eating organic or free-range eggs, meant that all day-old male chicks in the egg industry would be macerated. And that in the dairy industry, that calves will be torn away from their mothers and taken to slaughterhouses. When I read all this information, it was just like the lights switched on, and I just went vegan overnight. I worked for Animal Liberation for over a decade. I’ve also worked for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). And I decided that it was really people that needed to change, not animals.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present The Honorable Emma Hurst the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion, with all love, a big hug and best wishes, in Heaven’s grace. May you and all your supporters forever be in God’s favor.”

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

00:16:10

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.”

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.

The Vivacious Vegan Ambassador, Jane "Unchained" Velez-Mitchell, Part 2 of 3

Jane Velez-Mitchell’s enthusiasm in spreading the vegan message is inspirational. Her website, Jane Unchained, now reaches more than one million people. Jane and her team of volunteer contributors use every possible social platform to promote vegan living. “This is a crucial time. Every single person who wants to save this planet, go on social media every time you eat a vegan meal, put it on Instagram, go live on Facebooks. We need to flood social media with vegan content and normalize non-violence, and normalize non-violence, normalize veganism, normalize a compassionate lifestyle.” “We just finished a documentary called, ‘Countdown to Year Zero!’ Everybody needs to see ‘Countdown to Year Zero.’ It is the most important subject. If the world is uninhabitable for humans, it’s too hot to support human life, all the other issues will pale. And the solution is simply to eliminate the meat and dairy from our diet. It is the leading cause of climate change.”

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.

A Vegan Visionary: The Life of His Excellency Laurent Lamothe, Part 2 of 3

His Excellency Mr. Laurent Lamothe assumed the position of Prime Minister of the Republic of Haiti right after the 2010 earthquake. In doing so, he witnessed firsthand the biggest natural disaster tragedy in the history of the Caribbean caused by extreme weather due to climate change. Years later, he was invited to the Monaco Better World Forum 2019, to share his experience in rebuilding the country as Haiti’s Prime Minister. His stance to protect our precious oceans is well-known, as was his leadership in Haiti with the banning of all importing, manufacturing, and marketing of plastic and foam containers (polyethylene and polystyrene products). His Excellency pointed out the importance of having a working strategy and his choice of being part of the solution by being vegan. His Excellency also indicated that the vegan solution should be made known worldwide to people across all spectrums because we are in extreme urgency right now. Talking has to turn into action. "What not to do as a government. So, we truly need citizens to be aware (of it). Not just at the level of government, but at the level of civil society, at the level of foundations, at the level of non-governmental organizations in order to work in unison.” “I personally am a vegan. So, I’ve already taken that step." "So, applying the Paris Accord would be the first thing for governments, and of course, that’s on a global scale. On the local scale…locally, is to give benefits, is to give credits to companies that are doing so. So, incentivizing companies and, ultimately is to encourage the shift also, to new solutions.” “Fight on the demand, fight on the price-based competition, so that the plant-based might be less expensive than the animal-based. On top of what I said before, which is the subsidies, which is lowering the pricing, which is incentivizing demand, which is competition, which is really raising awareness." "I think, that’s very important because the lobby is where the legislation will get shifted and get changed or will remain in the status quo."

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.”

Matthew Appleby: Passionate Organic Vegan Gardening

Matthew Appleby: Passionate Organic Vegan Gardening

The interest in vegan horticulture and gardening has expanded exponentially, as more people become aware of how typical methods of growing plants and crops involve the use of environmentally damaging synthetic chemicals and practices that harm our precious animal co-inhabitants. "I’m Matthew Appleby, I’m editor for 'Horticulture Week.' I first started about 20 years ago being a vegan. I realized this was quite a sort of doable way of living. What motivates most people to become vegan is because they care about animals. And they care about the environment. And they care about their health, and it’s a combination of those three. Vegan gardening is gardening without exploiting animals. So, it’s using homemade composts and fertilizers, rather than animal composts and animal-based fertilizers. It’s also gardening with wildlife in mind. So rather than exploiting animals or trying to attract animals, it’s leaving the animals to do their own thing on your plot. It’s also gardening for vegan health. So, I’m interested in growing what’s nutritionally right for a vegan. I make vegan compost just the same as anyone else is making compost. You can have your kitchen scraps, your grass cuttings, leaves, you can have any leftover vegetable matter, but you just don’t use anything that’s animal-based. So, you don’t use anything which is from a farmed animal and you wouldn’t chuck in your eggshells, and you wouldn’t chuck in meat anyway because it basically doesn’t compost well, and it attracts rodents. I don’t dig, and I think it’s really common in a lot of areas of gardening now, and non-vegan gardeners increasingly not digging. And that a lot of people see this as a really good idea because you don’t want to disturb the layers of the soil because you know you create erosion, you break up your beneficial animals’ homes. So, I plant covered crops. Hopefully they’ll break down and put some nitrogen back in the soil, get some organic matter back in the soil which will create quite a good sort of soil crumb." Our appreciation Matthew Appleby, for your dedication to assisting gardeners to attain healthy and ecologically-sound green spaces. May the Heavens forever bless you! We hope to see more of your work in the future. Best wishes for your noble prospective endeavors!

Emma Hurst – Unequivocal Voice for the Animals, Part 2 of 2

Once elected to Parliament, the Honorable Emma Hurst presented a powerful inaugural speech that has been applauded by people around the world. “My promise to the animals is this: You have all of me. The lioness in the circus, I see you. The pig in the sow stall, I see you. The mouse in the medical experimentation facility, I see you. The fish crushed at the bottom of a trawler net, I see you. I know you’re suffering, and I will never be silent. I will push forward, no matter what life throws my way, because the cruelties inflicted on you must end, and I will do all I can to see that happen.” Ms. Hurst’s inaugural speech has touched many people’s hearts and has inspired audiences worldwide to be courageous and motivated to march on the path of compassion and veganism. We, as a society, are ultimately responsible for the ways in which we treat all cohabitants. To that end, Emma is a proponent of transparency within the animal industries. And the more Ms. Hurst speaks candidly about the plight of animals everywhere, the more people are sitting up and taking notice, even those who seem unlikely to do so.

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.”

Kuntal Joisher - The First Vegan on the Top of the World, Part 1 of 2

Kuntal Joisher - The First Vegan on the Top of the World, Part 1 of 2

Today we are sharing the achievements and successes of a courageous and noble man, Mr. Kuntal Joisher, the world’s first vegan to scale Mt. Everest. His climbing journey of the Himalayas started in 2009. With his persistent determination and fortitude, Mr. Kuntal stood on the top of Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the word, in May, 2016, from the Nepal side and again successfully in 2019, from the China side. “Sitting here right now, it’s almost been seventeen years that I have now been a vegan. And I have to tell you, that this was the best decision I have ever made in my life, because since that day I have been able to sleep every single night peacefully, knowing that o animals had to be killed for me to lead my life or me to pursue my dreams. It was a chance encounter in 2009, where I actually found that climbing mountains was the calling of my life. Mt. Everest simply cannot be conquered. It is always the mountain that decides whether you are going to make it to the top. So, it was during this journey, that I overcame so many of my self-doubts, so many of my limitations, and I conquered myself.”

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!”
