Jean Trudel is the founder of Circle of Peace (cercledepaix.org) and Melodeum. A natural storyteller who went from a Bohemian lifestyle in Europe, to producing shows for Sarah Mcglachlan and Celine Dion, to organizing welcoming committees for the Dalai Lama and working with the U.N., he's an amazing person to sit across when the mics are recording.

Jean-Marie is an author, public speaker, actor, and host of TVA's “Face à la Rue.” In our sit-down, Jean-Marie walks us through sharing moments with people with terminal illnesses and why he feels privileged to live this experience. He tells us what he has learned from spending time with Matthieu Ricard and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He also talks to us about how the homeless of Montreal have had a deep impact on his worldview, as well as how he approached pitching a show about homelessness to a major television network (TVA).
