Theme: Walk the talk

This event occurred on
February 22, 2020
Berlin, Berlin

Just as the value of a tree is judged by the quality of its fruits, the value of a practice is judged by the quality of its results. Communicating a great idea can make a contribution to the public struggle for future solutions more than ever before. However, a great idea often gets lost in the crazy shuffle of the day-to-day: It’s really hard to practice what you preach when you do not believe the sermon is the first place.
The core concept of ‘walking the talk’ is the change you want to see in the community, society, country and world. In other words, first communicating these changes to your surroundings.

Ben Bharat Berwing

Bharat escaped the hamster-wheel of modern society and the golden hand-cuffs of a corporate 6-figure job. 5 years ago he waived the conveniences and unnecessary necessities of the western world of names and things, to explore a richer lifestyle of self-realization with his wife and two boys. Fiji, Iran, India, USA: Traveling and living off the grid, in tiny homes and in symbiosis with nature opened his worldview for adventures in simple living: hand-milking cows, growing grains, digging wells, homeschooling and meditating about the goal of life while turning bullshit into Gold – literally! Bharat’s enthusiasm for Simple Living and High Thinking is incredibly infectious.
