Wise Up Loving
and laugh, laugh, laugh till the sacred cows come home!
As anyone who follows the news can attest, we are living in serious times. The antidote? Serious laughter. Take it from the Swami himself: “The best way to overcome gravity is with levity.” Swami Beyondananda brings his laugh-filled cosmic comedy to show to the New Renaissance Bookshop in Portland on Wednesday, May 12th as part of his Wake Up Laughing tour. Swami’s performance has been described both as “comedy disguised as wisdom,” and “wisdom disguised as comedy.” Which is it? Go see him, and then you decide. Here’s a hint … 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 Bulwinkle. 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 who has co-authored a book both spiritual luminary Deepak Chopra and political commentator Thom Hartmann call “world-changing.” The good news is, both Steve and Swami are coming to Portland! On Wednesday, May 12th, you’ll get a chance to experience Swami’s wacky wisdom, and delightful and hilarious comedy. That’s for openers. With the audience suitably “tenderized” through cosmic comedy and healing laughter, the turban comes off for the second set, as Steve presents an inspiring view of our evolutionary future – that incidentally is here now – as he talks about his new 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. The good news? We are on the brink of a “spontaneous evolution,” where we recognize that we are each cells in the body of a new organism called Humanity! Or as Swami would say it, “We are here to re-grow the Garden and have a heaven of a time doing it.” 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, courtesy of the Swami, and then be inspired to weave your own mission and talents with an emerging new evolutionary movement. 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. The event is at the New Renaissance Bookshop, 1338 NW 23rd Avenue in Portland, 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening, May 12th. Tickets are $20 and can be reserved by calling (503) 224-4929 or by going to http://www.newrenbooks.com/ If you love to laugh — or, if you need to — don’t miss the opportunity to get struck by enlightening and laugh till the sacred cows come home.
