From health, consciousness, and environment, to politics and quantum physics, Russel Brand is committed to raising social awareness and lifting the veil off of issues that are rarely discussed in mainstream media. If you are reading this Russel, thank you and keep up the good work.
In the video below, Russel interviews world renowned quantum physicist Dr. John Hagelin at an event put on by actor and director David Lynch. The topic of the event is meditation and the idea of transformation from within.
