OUR PLAN is to organize the human community to survive, thrive, relax, and laugh a lot—that's the job of our Community Organizer. Steve Bhaerman has devoted his life and his career to calling people together and teasing them into laughing, into loving each other, and also into thinking, organizing, and taking action. Wearing his political science costume, he blogs social, moral, and political wisdom at Notes From The Trail and he authored SPONTANEOUS EVOLUTION: Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There From Here with Bruce Lipton. Wearing his New Age comedian costume (with turban), as Swami Beyondananda, he teases with social, moral, and political humor from the stage worldwide and from his web site and Wake Up Laughing blog at WakeUpLaughing.com
