Russell Brand | CrowdRise Verified
CrowdRise Verified means this is the person you think it is. We use 'CrowdRise Verified' to prevent identity confusion, to establish authenticity and it just seems like something we're supposed to do.
This foundation was established to ensure that any child in America who wants to learn and practice the Transcendental Meditation program can do so. The TM program is the most thoroughly researched and widely practiced program in the world for developing the full creative potential of the brain and mind, improving health, reducing stress, and improving academic outcomes.
After I learned Transcental Meditation on a 4-day course, I truly believe first hand that this practice does wonders with your mind, body and soul. Now daily practice is putting distance between myself and addiction. I’m living in a disciplined way, doing lots of yoga, exercise and Transcendental Meditation. It’s not half good. They give you a mantra … You feel attuned to a consciousness that is beyond your identity and beyond life.
Please check out my project to support this great program. It is very important to me and if anything, I ask that you learn more about it.
Recently I visited Kenya and met some amazing children there and spent their days on the trash heaps looking for anything they could salvage or sell.
In Nairobi, diggers churned the rancid earth and gangsters menacingly patrolled, frequently, I was told abusing the girls who forage there.
Among these children I met, all of whom have lost one or more parent to HIV, it is impossible not to be touched by their incredible spirit and innate ability to be optimistic and playful; normal children, in fact.
I've included some photos from my trip there to the left.
Please check back here in a week when I will have a project that is dedicated to helping these kids find a better life.
Thanks for coming to visit my page. Really... Thanks
