greg russinger :: 2.39

greg russinger

this week we talk with Greg Russinger, a husband, father, avid reader, film lover and a lover of humanity. as part of his journey, he was one of the editors of Practitioners, a book that journaled many of the reflections and conversations that were born out of the Soliton events and network.

Greg is also one of the co-founders of JustOne, a movement formed to “stimulate greater global awareness about extreme poverty, and to provoke compassionate ideas and intelligent giving in order to provide sustainable relief.”

during our conversation, Greg talks about JustOne and what he’s learned about compassion and caring for others along his journey. he also shares some insight into the upcoming Idea Camp in the Pacific Northwest.
