Faith Stone invites you on an intimate journey during which she shares the story of her own 25-year metamorphosis from a free-spirited teenage art student (the “Green Apple”) searching for spirituality to a happy and fulfilled artist, teacher, musician, chef, wife and mother. Along the way, she is taught the meaning of love by an amazing spiritual leader, Swami (Rudi) Rudrananda, who was not afraid of living life and enjoying it. Rudi And The Green Apple truly is a story of love and transformation.
