Episode 6 of The Jack Canfield Podcast:

In today’s episode, I’m talking with Lynne Twist, a renowned global visionary transformational leader, author, and activist. Lynne has dedicated her life to ending world hunger and then to creating a world that works for everyone through creating an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet we call Earth. 

As a co-founder of the Pachamama Alliance,  Lynne’s also fostered a unique partnership with the indigenous Auchar people of the Amazon rainforest, whom I got to meet and get to know through Lynne taking a group of us, including my wife, Inga to meet with them in Ecuador. In part of our discussion, we’ll discuss Lynne’s work with the Pachamama Alliance and the predictions that the Auchar people have made about the future of our planet, which I think you’ll find quite profound.  

Lynne’s most recent book is entitled Living A Committed Life and it explores the power of intention and commitment in creating meaningful change in the world. Our conversation will dive into the lessons she shares in this book as well as her book The Soul of Money, and how they can inspire all of us to live with greater purpose, clarity, and passion.
