The one and only Larry Brilliant is the guest for this episode for It’s All Happening. Larry is one of the great examples of combining purpose and seva with business. His new book ‘Sometimes Brilliant’ is out now and covers his life story that includes meeting his teacher Neem Karoli Baba to starting the SEVA foundation. On the show we talked about our current situation and how to make peace with it as well as a pin pointed look at the reality of our nations economic and education dilemma and what to do about it. Of course, we also talked about Neem Karoli Baba and what being a seeker was like in the early 70’s for a young doctor from Detroit. I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this one – Larry is an endless well of knowledge, wisdom and love.
