Dear All,

Please consider tuning in and sharing with your lists ? for a guaranteed fun change of pace! Steve is a wonderful transpartisan, current events humorist.

Cheers, John and Margo

Hi John and Margo: I would love for you to help spread the word about an upcoming virtual Swami event that EVERYONE can attend. On Thursday evening, April 10th at 5 pm PT / 8 pm ET, the Swami will be hosting an online event with Shift Network called "Karma Talk", and it will be a huge opportunity for hundreds -- and maybe thousands -- of people to enjoy Swami's cosmic comic perspective at a time when laughter is at a premium. The call is free, and folks will be able to ask the Swami questions via email or live on the line. A bit of background ... in the fall of 2010, the Swami did a free Shift online event and 8,000 callers showed up to laugh with (and for all we know, at) the Swami. It was the free event that launched my first online humor class for Shift, A Course In Laughter. I am set to teach another 7-week class beginning April 14th called The Upwising Course: How to Humorize Your Life and Playfully Liberate Our World. What's most exciting about this course is that it presents the art and science of comedy as a tool for awakening, transformation and evolution. And, it's a playful and convenient way to introduce the community at large to the "Upwising" concept. So I am calling on all Swami fans -- and friends of friends of Swami fans -- to fill every imaginary seat in the house next Thursday, April 10th at 5 pm PT / 8 pm ET to enjoy a totally in-the-moment improvisational evening where the Swami answers your questions and you question his answers. If you have friends and colleagues you've wanted to introduce to the Swami, here is your chance. If you have a question you'd like to ask live or send in via email, here is a chance. If you'd like to move the Upwising forward so more people get familiar with that meme, it's a chance for that too. My intention is to break all records and have 10,000 people on that call. At a time when the world seems bogged down in gravity, this is a chance to let levity help us rise about what has been bringing us down. Over the weekend or early Monday, I will send you the link to send this far and wide, and hope that you will -- with your own brief endorsement if you like. (And if you're available to call in, maybe have a question for the Swami related to prayer. I thank you in advance for your friendship and support -- not to mention the worthy work YOU do. I'm so glad you are a co-heart on the journey! In great gratitude (and mischievous laughter) Steve Bhaerman -- Steve Bhaerman aka Swami Beyondananda (707) 888-7260
