Signs of Hope: New Stories Shaping a Better World
We are delighted to offer this series of monthly conversations with pioneers serving the Common Good and actively sowing seeds of a better world at every opportunity.
We find ourselves in a period of transition between two Ages when old structures and beliefs are dying and new ones are emerging. Sometimes it is difficult to see the hope-filled shoots of new possibilities amid the disarray of a society in upheaval.
The intent behind this new series is more than just naming projects around the planet that are giving birth to hope – its deeper purpose is to create a portal through which the presence of Fiery Hope can enter and ignite the heart of our humanity. It is an invitation for us to act as true Gaians and be active agents of Hope wherever and whenever we find ourselves – encouraging us to step up and offer our unique gifts in response to the call of the Soul and the need of the times.
Our guests for the March 21st Signs of Hope broadcast are Becky Suzik (Founder – Joyfuel) and Jon Ramer (Founder – Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest and the SINE Alliance and Network). Michael Lindfield will host the session on behalf of Meditation Mount.
Duration: 61 Minutes

Becky’s sacred work—in addition to being raised by her three children– is Joyfuel—a mixed-media unforce dedicated to spreading stories of kindness, creativity, and joy through the Joyfuel Kindcast, social media, and her heART-themed playshops. Her work aspires to inspire a shift from logical mind to heartmind, where thinking and feeling combine towards a life lived with greater joy and creative expression. Since World UNITY Week 2020 Becky has collaborated with people and companies around the world dedicated to uplifting, unifying and healing humanity and our earth. Becky is exploring how she might contribute towards the media she wants to see in the world.
