In today's episode, I talk with Jon Marro, an extremely talented artist, filmmaker, the author of Keepers of Color and Holden Hugs the World, and the resident creative genius for the Cafe Gratitude, Gracias Madre, and Be Love Farm family. Jon and I recorded this episode live, while I was staying on the Be Love Farm, so you will likely hear some farm noises like tractors, cows mooing, dogs barking, people talking, and children laughing.

Topics Covered:

  • The feeling of being in "alignment" with who you are
  • Jon's journey as an artist
  • Giving your entire attention to a task
  • How integrity is transferred into Jon's art
  • Relying on external sources for connection to source
  • Becoming your own "guru"
  • Disconnecting in order to reconnect
  • Ideas as entities
  • Making art in response to darkness
  • Optimism
  • Holding space for others
  • Destruction for destruction's sake
  • Learning how to rest
