In this episode of the Align Podcast, Budokon Founder Cameron Shayne and I share a high-level discussion on what it means to be a well-balanced human being in our materialistic culture. He offers a refreshing view on success and explains why you shouldn't aim for superiority over fellow beings and instead strive for unity, harmony, peace, and compassion. As we also discuss gender identity crisis, overpopulation, the "fractionalizing" popular culture, racism, and same-sex marriage, we highlight how movement carves our path toward collective progress and why we need more of it.
Considered the father of the mixed movement arts culture, Cameron Shayne pioneered the phrase and concept of Budokon Mixed Movement Arts. He has spent 25+ years studying and teaching yoga and movement to hundreds of people worldwide.
