Peggy Callahan

Peggy Callahan’s sense of fairness (or maybe masochism) has driven her work in film, television, and human rights. Peggy believes in the power of story to create real change on the planet. She was honored to capture the life-changing conversations between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his “mischievous brother” Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The dialogues inspired the film Mission: Joy - Finding Happiness in Troubled Times with Peggy as Co-Director and Producer. Peggy and team created the BIG JOY global project with scientists from UCSF, Harvard, and Berkeley. It is available online for free and increases participants' joy as it expands the science of joy. Peggy‘s grown-up job is fighting modern day slavery. She co-founded two international organizations, including Voices4Freedom, that help people come to freedom. Finally. Forever.

  • Cada entrevista es una gran oportunidad para invitar a la consciencia. Una y mil veces: Gracias! Me inspira más y más a poner mi voz en el voz: una voz que ayude a confiar en que lo bueno es posible. Saludos desde Buenos Aires

  • Thank you for such a deeply inspiring interview. I love especially her revealing her love for the Divine. Being a Catholic, I feel validated despite my not really needing it. Another reminder from her is the pointing finger which towards the end should also point to oneself. And the dancing, and the make up, and the lipstick, etc. Thank you Zainab, Salbi!!!

  • Thank you so much for sharing these insights. Truly inspiring ❤️ And it helps me on my path of yoga and help people to go inward to their heart. If people speak & act from the heart the world will be a better place.
