Anna Gatmon, PhD


Living a Spiritual Life in a Material World

Four Keys to Fulfillment and Balance



“People don’t necessarily want to give up material comforts in order to pursue the promise of spiritual fulfillment. At the same time, we all have an intrinsic need to lead meaningful, purposeful lives that contribute to a better world. Happiness lies in finding the spiritual value in our material desires and bringing our inner longings to physical realization” -Anna Gatmon, PhD


Anna Gatmon, PhD, is a visionary educator and spiritual motivator. She comes from and eclectic background that spans the USA, Israel, Sweden and France. Her rich life experience includes careers as a fashion model, founder of an alternative elementary school, counselor, speaker and author.


When asked to explain spirituality in simple terms, Dr. Gatmon replied:

“You’re flying in a plane…suddenly there is turbulence and everything is shaking, with the plane bouncing up and down….to get out of turbulent air, the pilots often climb to a higher altitude, where the atmosphere is calm…That is what spirituality is all about – rising to a higher altitude of emotional and mental stability, where there is no turbulence and you can sail over the disturbances of daily life with greater ease.”

About Dr. Dravon James

My name is Dr. Dravon James, and I am the founder of Everyday Peace. My goal with Everyday Peace is to educate, empower and inspire others to build the life of their dreams. As an author and speaker, I teach others how to utilize everything that shows up in their lives—the good, the bad, and everything in between—as stepping stones on the path to building the life of their dreams. The good, the bad and the in-between show up in everybody’s life, and I am no exception. My journey began in poverty on the South Side of Chicago. I went on to earn a doctorate degree in pharmacy from Creighton University, endured a very difficult marriage, many failed pregnancies, career turmoil and health challenges. Through it all, I knew that I possessed the power within me to not only create my own dream life, but to help others along the way. Today, I am the happy mom of two teenagers, a wife of 23 years, and a successful pharmacist. I continue to follow my dreams and teach others to do the same. Since I was a young girl I have dreamt of a life on the stage. Today, I am also an actress whose career credits include a recurring role on HBO’s acclaimed “The Wire”, many stage plays and independent films. I have faced what many would consider insurmountable odds for creating a dream life, but I have discovered that it’s not where you start or what happens in your life that determines how far you’ll go. In 2002, I began incorporating my personal development stories into my professional healthcare lectures at hospitals, long-term care facilities, and senior centers. My journey and my teachings resonated with so many people that it became apparent audiences were more interested in the Everyday Peace component than the pharmaceutical component of my talks. I was even invited to be the keynote speaker on Everyday Peace at one of the senior centers’ annual staff appreciation events. Today, I continue to inspire and teach what I know to be the most effective tool for transforming, creating and building a spectacular life—tapping into Everyday Peace. My client list includes the University of the District of Columbia, New Hope World Ministries, Today’s Care Adult Daycare, Stadium Place, and Next Chapter online radio. Believe me when I say that you can start right where you are today (no matter where that is) to get where you want to be. I am here to teach you to access your own Everyday Peace to empower you to create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

(What is) The True Nature of Living?


The pressure to remain fit, slim and in control of one’s body does not subside with the end of youth ---

it grows only more insistent as one grows older…….

The price of survival is endless toil. – Barbara Ehrenreich, Running to the Grave, Harpers Magazine (March 2018)

Jeanne Louise Calment, a Frenchwoman who died in 1997 at the age of 122 – (the longest confirmed life span on record) never worked in her life, but it could be said she worked out.  She and her wealthy husband enjoyed tennis, swimming fencing, hunting, and mountaineering.  Anyone looking for dietary tips will be disappointed, Calment liked beef, fried foods, chocolate and pound cake.

 And she smoked cigarettes and sometimes cigars (she did however have a persistent cough in her later years).


What matters more the quality of your life or the quantity of your life?

Does healthy aging constitute a rich life?

Do good health habits guarantee longevity?

Are the latest “longevity” and “anti-aging” products selling self-absorption?



The social credit score in China.

Facial recognition.

Female Prisoners in Japan

April 5, 2018

This Friday on The Broad Perspective join host Vivian Komori, Greg Barnes, Kevin Lawson and Laura Feliz as they discuss:

Female prisoners in Japan


One in five female prisoners in Japan is senior, almost all of whom have been convicted of petty crimes like shoplifting.  This is no accident.  Elderly women in Japan are economically vulernable.  Have live below the poverty line.  Many live by themselves and have no one to turn to for help. So there is a growing trend in Japan of elderly women deliberately committing petty crimes—hoping to get caught so that they’ll be sent to prison.


Is this a last resort of welfare?

In the 1970’s and 1980’s Japan was indomitable.  What has happened?

How do the seven stages of empire explain this phenomena and what does it mean for the United States?

What happens as the population bubble pops?
