Walk the Talk Show: Seane Corn & Waylon Lewis at Wanderlust Festival in 2013: 

Seane is well known for humanitarian work and continues to grow her efforts. She recently teamed up with Damien Echols, a man who was exonerated from death row. 

Director Peter Jackson and his partner Fran Walsh financed investigations to help free Jason Baldwin, Jesse Misskelley Jr. and Damien Echols—”the West Memphis Three”—who were convicted in 1994 of murdering three 8-year-old boys in West Memphis, Arkansas.

Here is the trailer of West of Memphis, the documentary Jackson and Walsh produced about their findings: 

Elephant is psyched to be working in partnership with Google+ on our new live video series, which features three live videos a week (that can be watched later, too).

I found Sean to be such an inspiration. I watched Seane in the documentary "Yoga Is" and I really resonated with one thing she said. She spoke exactly about how we should teach what we know. Use our pain to help those get through what they are going through. That the things that fuel us are the things that we should do to help others. It was in that moment that I realized what I needed to do. Thank you SO much Seane!! Real inspiration!

"People who want to get involved in service can often do it from a place of their own unhealed wounds or traumas." Thank you so much for this wise and important talk, Seane. These words need to be spoken!

Thank you Seane & Waylon for a very interesting interview. As a "newly trained fledgling teacher" (as one of my teacher called me recently), I was happy to hear that many of the things you (both) find important are also on my list of priorities. And I was also motivated by a few other things you said of which I know I need to pay more attention to. I do not aspire celebrity in any way, but I do hope to, one day, be able to inspire people like you do. Thanks and have a great day!
