There are few things in life that are free, require no equipment, decrease anxiety and depression, improve concentration and memory, and generally make life more tolerable. Well people, meditation is one of those things. It might be the only thing. In this episode, we explore with few facts but lots of enthusiasm one thing we can always turn to. When all else is lost, at least there's meditation.
During the Holocaust, some people took extraordinary risks to protect Jews being persecuted across Europe. Beginning in 1963, a commission headed by a justice of the Supreme Court of Israel has been researching and awarding these people the honorary title "Righteous Among the Nations". This episode is about real, everyday people who did heroic things to save the lives of others just because it was the right thing to do. We are so grateful that at least there are people like this in the world!

PS. No, there was no 4x4x48 in March. There was a broken arm and a re-evaluation of the limits of this mortal coil.
Close your eyes... you can almost smell the ocean, the corndogs, the grease from carnival rides, the sunscreen. This episode takes you to the shores of New York and the one and only Coney Island. Learn a little history, a little bit about freak shows, a little bit about land management.
