On today’s podcast we have Sanjay Rawal. Sanjay spent 15 years working on grassroots peace-building campaigns under the direction of his teacher Sri Chinmoy. He is also the film director of the documentaries ‘Food Chains’, ‘Gather’ and ‘3100: Run and Become’ which features several Indigenous cultures in their quest for peace through long-distance running.
What I love about this conversation is the enrichment, full of depth, passion and love. This is genuinely one of my all time favourite conversations from the To Be Human podcast, and it’s one personally I will be listening back to more than once. I want you to go on your own journey in this one, so I won’t share too much of what is inside. I will share that we do derive a lot of our conversation on the lessons learnt from filming 55 days of the 3100 Self-Transcendence Run; a 3,100 mile run around less than 1km block in Queens, New York. We discuss the beautiful relationships between endurance and growth, the beauty and joy that can be found in suffering, and the mindset of those who finish this phenomenal feat. There is also a special contribution to my dear Australian friend Stephen Redfern at the end; he has just arrived in New York to experience his own path of self-transcendence. Stephen I will preface this now with saying, the beautiful Native American Navajo People believe that, ‘Mother Earth is also under the sidewalk.’ I am excited to further share this with you and with all.
