Steve and Trudy Bhaerman
Steve Bhaerman is an internationally known author, humorist, and workshop leader. For over 30 years, he has written and performed as Swami Beyondananda, the "Cosmic Comic." Swami's comedy has been described both as "comedy disguised as wisdom" and "wisdom disguised as comedy." Marianne Williamson has called him “The Mark Twain of our generation.”
On the "serious" side, Steve has co-authored Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here with cellular biologist Bruce H. Lipton (Hay House, 2009). Steve is active in transpartisan politics and his radio show Wiki Politiki can be heard on Om Times Network. Steve can be found online at wakeuplaughing.com
Trudy Bhaerman’s true passions, expressions and work began to emerge in the culture of the 60’s. Trudy became a self-educated, pioneer in Holistic Health, working as a nutritional consultant in health food stores, as well as, the first wellness clinic in Detroit, Michigan. Simultaneously, she delved into the metaphysical and esoteric arts, with astrology as the key fractal of understanding. Also, a love of gems, minerals, rocks and stones began and flourishes to this day. She is also an innate dancer, dancing for the first 9 years in the ‘Swami & Trudy’ shows. Her love of photography also emerged. She has chronicled the ‘Travels with Swami’ these last 31 years.
Trudy’s current mission is…’the restoration of our economy and ecology with agricultural, industrial hemp. She and Steve are writing the book Let My People Grow: How Hemp Will Restore the Ecology and Renew the Economy - ready for the spring of 2018.
