“There’s no better way to access your Higher Self than through levity. Gravity will only bring you down.” – Swami Beyondananda
If you've seen Swami Beyondananda before, here is a chance to see him again ... and to go "beyond Beyondananda" to meet the man behind the Swami, Steve Bhaerman. You'll laugh … you'll learn … you'll laugh … and you'll laugh some more. Not only will you experience the Swami in his most natural habitat – offering questionable answers to answerable questions – you'll get a look behind the scenes at the "innards" of cosmic comic distinctions, and discover the "aha" in the wake of the "ha-ha." You'll hear Steve's "laugh story" -- and discover how it parallels your own journey to Fool Realization and Cosmic Comic Consciousness.
The Swami, whose favorite yoga pose is tongue-in-cheek, is the spokesperson for a new non-religion, FUNdamentalism (accent on "fun"). Says the Swami, "We are strictly non-dominational." Swami's latest venture is to combine his non-religion of FUNdamentalism with the non-politics of the newly formed Right to Laugh Party ("one big party ... everyone is invited"), to create one big evolutionary up-wising to overgrow the current dysfunctional system.
In the course of nearly twenty-five years of purveying cosmic comedy and healing laughter, Swami has had a successful, long-running monthly column, Ask The Swami, has written four books (Driving Your Own Karma ... When You See A Sacred Cow, Milk It for All It's Worth ... Duck Soup for the Soul ... Swami for Precedent: A Seven-Step Plan to Heal the Body Politic and Cure Electile Dysfunction), and produced a half a dozen comedy cassettes (sorry, not available on 8-track) and CDs.
In recent years, the Swami has performed at numerous political events, including the Transpartisan Alliance Citizens Summit, the Network of Spiritual Progressives Conference, the Department of Peace Conference, the Praxis Peace Institute Economics of Peace Conference, to name a few.
