JOHN M. BUNZL
John Bunzl is a global political activist and businessman with a new and compelling vision for citizen-driven global cooperation.
In 1998 the idea for Simultaneous Policy occurred to him as a potential means for removing the barriers which prevent many of today’s global problems from being solved. In 2000 he founded the International Simultaneous Policy Organization (ISPO) and launched the Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) campaign. In 2001, he set out the campaign in his first book of the same name. The Simpol campaign has since steadily been gathering increasing attention, recognition and support amongst citizens, activists, non-governmental organizations, politicians, business people and many others.
In 2003 he co-authored his second book, Monetary Reform – Making it Happen!, written with the prominent monetary reformer, James Robertson. In 2009 he authored a third book, People-centred Global Governance – Making it Happen! In 2017, John co-authored The Simpol Solution – Solving global problems could be easier than we think, together with Nick Duffell. A number of John’s articles on global governance have been published by the Journal of Integral Theory & Practice, including Solving Climate Change – Achieving a Noospheric Agreement (2009), Discovering an Integral Civic Consciousness in a Global Age (2012), and Transcending First-tier Values in Achieving Binding Global Governance (2012).
He has lectured widely, including to The Schumacher Society, The World Trade Organization, The Lucis Trust and at various universities around the world.
John is a company director living in London. He has three children.
Originally from France, André expressed an interest in music at a young age, working as a sound man for theaters in Paris. Over the past decades he has emerged as an accomplished hands-on healer and guide for the terminally ill, incorporating dolphin-assisted therapy, music and imagery into his practice.
Since 2002, André’s immersive studies with indigenous elders in Peru, Brazil, Hawaii and New Zealand have inspired his abilities as an intuitive musical composer, healer, and guide.
André’s vision for the future is to merge modern technology such as Virtual Reality with music and imagery for therapeutic use.
Creation, A Symphonic Journey
Creation celebrates a journey from the creation of the universe to the creation of new life, and the vibrant voyage in between. Creation was André’s first orchestral composition in 2012, and inspired him to compose more music in this style. Nearly a decade later, Chiara Mon Ange, a song evoked by the birth of his daughter in 2021, led to the album’s completion. Its musical progression invites the listener to plunge from the creation of the universe into the depths of the ocean, where dolphins guide them into mysteries of Egypt and the manifestation of The Great Pyramid. Rise Up, a song of rebirth, propels the listener toward a reunion of eternal souls and a celebration of discovering purpose and authenticity in one’s life, which ultimately and inevitably ends victoriously.
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
