“There used to be a time when retirement for seniors meant moving to Costa Rica to spend the rest of your days relaxing by the beach.” The words of our special guest this week, Michael Richardson, who at seventy, chooses instead to serve as a peaceful activist for our country and a world that the Hopi Indians call Koyaanisqatsi meaning “Life out of Balance.”

 

A retired consultant to municipalities for workforce planning and operating budgets, Michael now spends his days producing Hate-Watch Report which monitors hate groups and other extremists throughout the Upper Hudson Valley and exposes their activities to the public and the media. Michael also teaches workshops in climate and environmental action through the Rivers & Mountains Green Faith Circle in the Upper Hudson Valley watershed. All of Michael’s endeavors are without compensation. 

 

Michael’s activism began in the 1970’s fighting for war-resistance and economic justice and, as an active member of the Zen Peacemaker Order, he brings fifty years of experience studying Buddhism to his social action for peaceful change. If we are to have any chance of surviving the lies that spread hate, global warming, and the Christofascism that threatens our right to worship or not freely, we have to act now.

 

Michael Richardson gives a master-class on how we can create a better future for our world.  I can tell you that Michael’s sage wisdom opened my eyes and raised my awareness so much so it shifted my entire outlook on life. I recognized that I was going about my activism all wrong. If you are struggling with the hate that is polarizing our country and the world, this show is a utility belt geared to open your heart and elevate your awareness as an activist for social change.  Tune in to Behind The Curtain to meet the extraordinary and inspiring Michael Richardson and buckle up because you’re destined for a life shift.

We cant change the karma of our past or of the present but we
CAN alter our future karma with the peaceful actions we take today.
