ROO #127: Why Revolution Why Will Change Your Life

In this episode, I discuss the inspiration, purpose, and details behind the Revolution Why Immersion with change makers, Emma Huvos, Greg Faxon, and Izzy Darby. Revolution Why is a retreat for growth-minded millennials who want to question their relationship with their work, health, food, and other people. It will include workshops on yoga, meditation, plant based cooking, and deliberate living. The immersion will feature speakers, opportunities for hands-on learning, community building, and skill sharing. Most of all though, it means leaving more connected to yourself and others, revitalized and ready to spread the revolution. Even if you are not a millennial, I encourage you to listen to this episode since Emma, Greg, and Izzy explore important questions for everyone to reflect on in regards to living a fulfilled life. Revolution Why will be held on October 9-12, 2015 at the Riverside Project, a beautiful 80 acre property on the banks of the Shenandoah River in Charles Town, West Virginia (90 minutes outside of Washington, DC).

Running On Om’s Manifesto

Over the past year, I have had the privilege of getting to know ROO Podcast Interviewees, Greg Faxon of Living Deliberately and Izzy Darby of Veganizzm, who are both passionate, entrepreneurial, young adult bloggers. We have challenged each other, collaborated, and acted as sounding boards for one another in our journeys to develop the mission that grounds our work. A few months ago, Greg proposed that we all write “manifestos” to clarify the purpose of our blogs.
