Guests: Josh Steiber and Conor Curran, Veterans of Iraq and Originators of the Contagious Love Experiment.
Recently, I was privileged to listen to the stories of two Iraq combat veterans passing through St. Louis on their bicycles on the way to San Francisco.
I was deeply impressed; not by the venture, though it was bold and wonderful in its own way, but by the spirit that drove it. It was something genuine, rooted in the errors of the past recognized and overcome; sanity arising from insanity, enlightenment and freedom, resulting from the application of critical thinking and a release of spirit.
Josh Steiber and Conor Curran have been bicycling across the country, encountering its citizens where they live, telling their stories and letting those stories work their way into the conscience of the people they meet.
I was impressed not only by their spirit, but how that spirit guided their encounters, laying off the preaching, doing a lot of listening, seeking areas of common interest, yet being fully their enlightened selves in a totally non-threatening way.
This week, Chuc goes on location to interview Josh Steiber and Conor Curran about the Contagious Love Experiment and the cross country bicycle trip that is part of it. Give a listen, then check out their blog to follow them to the West Coast.
