If you’ve ever wanted to find more peace in your heart and in your life, then do we have the what is peace show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Lexie Brockway Potamkin, a human rights activist, counselor, and minister, former Miss World USA, a speaker before the UN, a collaborator with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan monks, and the author of a brilliant series of books including “What is Spirit?” “What is Peace?” and “What is Love?

And that’s just what I want to talk with her about today, about “What is Peace?”, how they’re each interrelated, that plus death and laughter too, and how we can bring more peace into our lives.
