About Your Hosts

Jack LaValley

I've been involved with Spirituality and martial arts since the 1970's, observing how each person longs to live their life with a deeper sense of purpose and meaning. Our personal assumptions about who we are and how the world operates can profoundly impact our daily lives. Together with my good friend, Idris, I hope our podcast will add new insights to understanding yourself and a greater potential within this beautiful world. Since 1982, I've been married to the love of my life, Wha ja, and we are the proud parents of three extraordinary children, all grown up now. When not podcasting, I'm writing my memoir. On leisurely days, I enjoy playing drums in a local pickup band or performing in Broadway-type musicals with a NYC amateur troupe.

Idris Kone

I was born and raised in Africa, amid ethnic, religious, and racial conflict. I have seen the atrocities of war and its negative impact on individuals and families. Because of my circumstances, I yearned to understand the root cause of conflict and violence between human beings. I decided to dedicate my life to learn how human beings can experience inner peace and live in harmony with one another. One discovery I've made is understanding how individual personal growth can resolve interpersonal conflict, heal painful relationships, and create the experience of inner peace. As co-host of Transform Your Life: A Unificationist View, I'm joining with my friend and brother Jack LaValley, hoping you will experience a more profound transformation in your life and find inner peace. I teach courses in conflict transformation, interfaith dialogue, Spirituality, and Islamic studies at the Unification Theological Seminary, in New York City. Together with my beautiful wife, Tsedvesuren, we are raising our two young daughters, Michelle and Miae.

New episodes will be available every Wednesday.
