I’m an ex radio talk show host from India, a voice over artist and a yoga teacher. Meditation and spirituality has been a very core part of my existence and so is interviewing people and getting to know their stories.
I’ve been a part of spiritual DAO and after a lot of discussion with my council members @thephilosopher and @beetlejuice, I would like to suggest something I think might be a cross section of artistic and spiritual value creation.
Please let me know your thoughts
Title - Innerviews with Sahil

Various old and new age practices and what they are in essence. For eg - Vipassana, Kundalini Yoga, Tantra, breathwork etc
Interview teachers/practitioners in those fields and ask simple relevant questions which makes the viewer know more about the practice in depth.
call for these pr
Open an artwork bounty related to these practices and invite interviewees as judges to the metaverse event to select an artwork that will receive bounty prize.
Ask Spiritual DAO community members what sort of practices and lineages they want to know about, so I can interview teachers that the community wants to know about and ask them questions community wants to know.
I will share the teachers that will be interviewed once the proposal is finalised and ask via spiritual DAO telegram group as to what questions does the community have to ask these teachers.
There are various spiritual practices each country has. The goal is to interview people from different countries and make a video series that explains what every practice in detail, so people can also refer to it if they want to know more about any practice out there and to provide Near community with quality information.
Justification (benefits) -
Will generate video based nfts based on spiritual practices from all around the world which can resonate with a lot of followers of those practices and anyone who is interested in spirituality.
It will get people from outside in near ecosystem as teachers will share posts on their social media
Will help Near community to connect with right resources in case they need to learn any practice.
This will increase the knowledge base of the Near community about various practices
