'Joy is the purpose of life' with Satish Kumar
'When we act with love we experience joy......... the path to joy begins  when we start to appreciate what we have ..... it disappears when we  focus on what we don't have ..... joy is a celebration of life' are some  of the gems in this conversation.  Peace-pilgrim, life-long activist and former monk, Satish Kumar has been  inspiring global change for over 50 years. Aged 9, Satish renounced the  world and joined the wandering Jain monks. Inspired by Gandhi, he  decided at 18 that he could achieve more back in the world and soon  undertook a peace-pilgrimage, walking without money from India to  America in the name of nuclear disarmament. Now in his 80s, Satish has  devoted his life to campaigning for ecological regeneration, social  justice and spiritual fulfilment.   Satish founded Schumacher College as well as The Resurgence Trust, an  educational charity that seeks a just future for all. To join Satish in  protecting people and planet, become a member of Resurgence (with 20%  off), entitling you to this charity’s change-making magazine, Resurgence  & Ecologist. Satish appears regularly on podcasts, radio and television shows. He has  been interviewed by Richard Dawkins, Russell Brand and Annie Lennox,  appearing as a guest on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Thought for the  Day and Midweek. Satish presented an episode of BBC2's Natural World  documentary series, which was watched by 3.6 million people. An  acclaimed international speaker and author, Satish’s autobiography sold  over 50,000 copies, inspiring change around the world.  For the latest updates on 'JOY' courses, conferences, team sessions,  training and coaching, please visit and/or facebook  @laughteryogaforjoy
