(A special two-hour “live" broadcast with some listener phone-ins.) Here the founder of the Shanti Project, creator of "Peak Performance" seminars and founding president of the Peak Performance Center talks about ways to enhance life and realize one's personal potential in the middle of the marketplace or the "real" world. Raising corporate consciousness, catalyzing social change, integrating the spiritual with the political and more are explored in this wide-ranging dialogue. 


As a computer scientist and a member of a team of engineers, analysts and support staff on the Apollo Eleven project, our first lunar landing, Charles Garfield was part of a group of empowered people who went far beyond their previous results to legendary achievement. It was his work on the first moon-landing project that led to his discovery of the dynamics of peak performance. He is also founder of the Shanti Project, an internationally acclaimed AIDS and cancer service organization. He lives in Northern California with his wife Cynthia (Cindy) Spring.
