Jean Beliveau in the BC Cold

One of the most inspiring interviews I’ve done in my five years on the radio was with Canadian peace walker Jean Beliveau. Jean left his Montreal home to walk around the world 11 years ago. Today he’s still walking and on August 18th celebrated his 56th birthday. He’s now roughly 1000 km from his return to Montreal and a long-awaited reunion with his wife, Luce. What a journey it has been. Read the latest newsletter on Jean’s walk and follow him as he discovers what it’s like to camp in his own country with bears, squirrels and other forest inhabitants.

I encourage you to listen to the interview I did with Jean.

Radio host, inspirational speaker and health educator John Haines is the author of In Search of Simplicity: A True Story that Changes Lives and the recently released Beyond the Search, books to lift the spirit and touch the heart. See

“In Search of Simplicity is a unique and awe-inspiring way to re-visit and even answer some of the gnawing questions we all intrinsically have about the meaning of life and our true, individual purpose on the planet. I love this book.”

Barbara Cronin, Circles of Light. For the complete review visit:

“In Search of Simplicity is one of those rare literary jewels with the ability to completely and simultaneously ingratiate itself into the mind, heart and soul of the reader.”
