Defying Gravity work/playshop with Trudy & Steve Bhaerman

September 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Cosmic Comic Swami Beyondananda brings his
Evolutionary Up-Wising to Your Town

In addition to espousing a new non-religion called FUNdamentalism (accent on “fun”), and a political movement called the “Right to Laugh Party” (one big party, everyone is invited), the Swami also channels Elvis and Bullwinkle.

On the other hand, his more serious alter ego, Steve Bhaerman, just completed a book with the noted cellular biologist, Bruce Lipton.

It turns out, Swami and Steve – like Superman and Clark Kent – co-inhabit the same body. By night, there is the pun-slinging turban-powered Swami. By day, the “mild-mannered” one time political scientist, co-authored a book both spiritual luminary Deepak Chopra and political commentator Thom Hartmann call “world-changing.” The good news? Both Steve and Swami are coming to Unity of Fort Collins!

On Saturday evening, Sept. 22nd, you’ll get a chance to experience Swami’s wacky wisdom, and hilarious comedy. At the event, Steve will also be signing copies of his just-released book, “Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here.”

Written with world-renowned biologist Bruce Lipton, Spontaneous Evolution offers a heartening view of humanity’s future, based on the latest science and ancient wisdom.

Whether Swami or Steve, the mission is the same: “Evolutionary up-wising” – that is, helping the world awaken to our positive future and begin living it now.

And the best way to begin is with a good belly laugh … dozens of them, available on Sept. 22nd (Saturday night) courtesy of the Swami, and then intermingled with the Sunday morning talk from Steve. If you’re ready to wake up laughing … and awaken in the wake of the laughter, be sure and join this “multiple personality” and more than double your fun.

He will be guest-speaking the next morning at Unity, providing our usual Sunday morning talk and also teaching his “Defying Gravity” play/work shop the afternoon of Sept. 23rd here at Unity – along with his wife, Trudy.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door for Saturday night. The cost of the playshop is $25 in advance and $30 at the door. We are offering a special package price for attending both events (Saturday night comedy and Sunday afternoon playshop) of $40.

Swami’s performance is perfect for community gatherings, because his appeal is diverse – bridging the spiritual, holistic health, yoga, environmental, green business and peace communities. As an “insider,” Swami pokes gentle fun at our foibles and leaves the audience with a positive message – and a positive feeling. While the show is hilariously funny, it not only leaves ‘em laughing, it leaves ‘em smiling. Bottom line: Swami’s performance is perfect for those who love to laugh … and those who need to.
