#47 - My life after hate, how an ex-white supremacist changed his mind and heart with Arno Michaelis
1:04:51 | View on iTunes
I met Arno after the most recent election. When the world and the country were totally shocked. As a response the amazing Kim Stetz introduced me and a few of our teachers at our yoga studio to Arno's work- and had him speak to us about his past.
Arno is an ex-white supremacist. For years he walked around with hate (and fear) in his heart. He was the founding member of one of the largest racist skinhead organizations on the earth.
Now, he leads an organization called Serve2Unite (their mission is to spread peace through the school system via compassion and creativity) wrote an amazing book called "My Life After Hate" and is an embodiment of love.
Arno changed his whole life around. And his mission in life took a complete shift. (listen to episode and hear for yourself).
How can someone who had brought about such hate turn his reality fully around?
What can we learn from him?
And ultimately, how can his unique view give us a lens into how we ourselves can plant seeds of kindness and love (amidst the very real) hatred that still exists in the world?
