What is Peace Brain? Peace Brain is a term that Dr. Gail Lash created to indicate a peaceful mind, body, spirit and world. Peace Brain is the synergistic connection between our mental and emotional bodies – the blending of the electrical power of the mind with the magnetic force of the heart. We humans cannot exercise our complete capabilities and innate gifts to manifest true Peace On Earth unless our Peace Brain is engaged, with these biological and spiritual centers working as one. Unity through Diversity is the goal.

Topics of Peace span the complete continuum of Science and Spirit – and so does The Peace Brain Show!  Listen and explore scientific and metaphysical concepts related to the human condition, animals and Nature, our relationship to Universal Energy and implementations of Peace worldwide with your Host, Dr. Gail Lash!

Drawing on her multifaceted background, Dr. Gail features guests who are Zoo and Aquarium leaders, Animal conservation partners, Community facilitators, social Justice organizations promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, National park operators, Metaphysicians, Energy healers, Angel workers, Animal communicators, and much more – all imparting their practical wisdom on how we each can create a world of Peace, Love, Justice and Beauty – manifesting “As Above So Below”.

From this, envision a map of the Earth being populated with “Places Of Peace” (markers and practices by these organizations and grassroots individuals) that when linked create Peace Trails around the world!  It is practical; it is powerful; it is possible!

The show is a one-hour format.  It begins with an opening quote and monologue segment by Dr. Gail, introducing the Peace topic for that show. This is followed by a 30 to 40-minute conversational interview with an amazing guest of note – done in the spirit of friendship, laughter, respect, contemplation and building community.  The show ends with a Peace Brain Meditation, in which Dr. Gail enables you to practice turning on and tuning into your Peace Brain!  Join us!

GAIL: Welcome to The Peace Brain Show! This is your Host, Dr. Gail Lash and I’m happy to have you here today!

Today we have Jenni Trethowan with us, and a powerful topic of peace with animals to discuss, along with a transformative meditation at the end of the show!

But first, as always, I want to open the show with a quote. This quote is from Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, author of Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of The Wild Woman Archetype.

She says: “ It is not given to us to know which acts, or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good. What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts, adding, adding to, adding more, continuing. We know that it does not take "everyone on Earth" to bring justice and peace, but only a small, determined group who will not give up during the first, second, or hundredth gale.”

This quote represents the value of persistence. When we have a dream, or a goal, we must pursue it, relentlessly, not letting other throw us off course.

INTRODUCE GUEST – Today we have Jenni Trethowan, Founder of Baboon Matters.


For 25 years Jenni has championed the rights of baboons in Cape Town.  In 1990, following the euthanasia of a troop of baboons in Kommetjie, she, together with Wally Petersen, formed the Kommetjie Environmental Awareness Group (KEAG) which successfully lobbied for the protected status of baboons on the Cape Peninsula.

 ​KEAG  was ahead of the times in many respects – they implemented one of the first alien clearing projects in Cape Town, and offered permaculture training when the method was still in its infancy.

In 2001 she left KEAG to start Baboon Matters, focusing on creating awareness for the plight of baboons living on the urban edge.  Since then she has been featured in over 40 documentaries, received numerous awards, published a book, and been personally commended on her work by Dr Jane Goodall.

She has addressed many thousands of learners, university students, academics, and residents of affected areas – changing perceptions and giving people a better understanding of our primate relatives and how to live in harmony with them.
