This podcast is the audio-version of all things connected the organization and movement called One Solution. We believe that there is a simple solution to many of the world’s most challenging and persistent problems. That solution is an understanding of how all global challenges originate in the human mind and can be directly addressed in the human mind. Change the thinking that drives global issues, and we can actually begin to solve our challenges, rather than dealing with the symptoms.
Change in the Unknown Part 1 with Dajohn White
This interview series is the audio version of the One Solution Deep Dive series, where we explored how to create change in the unknown. It was originally a 4-hour long conversation with different guests, and this podcast series will highlight each interview one at a time. This first interview is with Dajohn White, Co-founder and CEO of the Rebels for Peace. If you wish to be part of these interviews LIVE, make sure you subscribe on youtube and Facebook, or newsletter.
The Rebels for Peace and Brian Gleason
In today's episode, we have a beautiful conversation between Dajohn White and Prince Jimmar from the Rebels for Peace in Chicago and Brian Gleason, an LA-based therapist who's been working with youth for over 20 years. We're excited about this one, as it is really candid conversation between people from different backgrounds, ages, and upbringing that discussed our common humanity, connection, and resilience. It shows how we can connect in both joy and in struggle. Brian brings his own beautiful and personal story of learning how to accept himself fully and how the struggles he had as a young kid was what later drew him to working with young people and supporting them - and in the end making it his lifes work. The Rebels for Peace share from their perspective of growing up as a young person in South-side Chicago and how that experience inspired them to now be leaders of youth. We love how these seemingly different people can have the same story and the metaphor that can be for mending a divided society.

In our final webinar in our webinar series with the IOS collective, it's all about the participants.

We got some great questions regarding addictions, what's needed to get started helping people, the fears we are up against,and sharing experiences working in schools, prisons, and communities. We hope after these 3 webinars you are closer to see our common humanity and connection, and how seeing more of that is the key to be helping facilitate changeanywhere, anytime with anyone.

IOS-Webinar 2: Stories of transformation
This is the second webinar in the 3 part series on Collective Community Change we did with the IOS Collective.In this webinar we dove deeper into the stories of change we've seen in our work, and how those stories can be scaled and happen to anyone. We firmly believe that change is something that is possible for everyone, and that a new thought and a new life is just around the corner. We've seen that no matterthe circumstance, backround, situation or past experiences, we can all shift. And what we're looking for is already inside of us, it's not something we have to manufacture. As with these webinars you will hear a wide range of stories, but we invite you too see beyond the personal and find what is universal and true for everyone. See you on the next one!Thanks!One Solution Team and the IOS Collective.

This is a recording of a conversation between Mara, Eirik, Ayanna and Garret. Ayanna and Garret are two very wise Chicago youth, that's involved in Rebels for Peace, as well as their own initiatives in trying to make change. In this podcast you hear what they've seen about their own potential to make change, how they use their mind, and how they want to inspire others to do the same. You hear how growing up in Chicago South Side has a lot of temptation where the mind could go in the violent direction, but also how they were able to stay on a more positive path. They also share their inspirations, ranging from their parents and mentors to artists that use their platform to convey a positive message. Garret even does a live performance for us, sharing powerful words of wisdom through music.PS! The audio from this one is not optimal, but we hope you can hear through it and you enjoy. Just put your headset on and enjoy :)
