On August 18th, 2000, at 9:00 am, Jean Béliveau left Montreal, Canada. His goal was to walk around the planet to promote peace and non-violence for the children of the world. He traveled alone with a three-wheeled stroller that held his food, clothing, a First Aid kit, a small tent and a sleeping bag. Jean walked across the continents, from North America to South America, then across to South Africa, up to Europe, then the Middle East, South and Eastern Asia, Australia, New Zealand and finally back to Canada. Known as "The Walker," he returned home on October 16, 2011, after meeting 1600 families around the world and walking more than 75,000 kilometers.
Caer Hallundbaek speaks with him about his journey, which was made in support of the United Nations International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World.
Topics in this hour include: what inspired him to go on this decade-long journey; where he was on 9-11 and how it affected his journey and thoughts; stories from the road, including the U.S., Peru, Africa, the Middle East, the Philippines, Europe; his encounters with poverty, children, joy; how these affected his spirituality; how joy is not found in material values and gadgets; how his life was changed by this journey; a reflection for your spiritual tool belt; and much more.
