Choose Love over Fear

With true Carrey flair, Jim delivers a funny but inspiring speech to the students, parents, faculty, university administrators, and many others who packed the Patanjali Golden Dome in Fairfield, Iowa to welcome this much-loved celebrity. He pokes fun at everything from Monsanto to AyurVeda, showing he’d conscientiously done his homework in tailoring his talk to this particular graduating class. But it’s not all comedy: Dr. Carrey also gives sound, sometimes moving, advice to his warmly receptive audience.

James Eugene “Jim” Carrey is a Canadian American comedian, actor, author, and philanthropist. He was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, two of which he won for The Truman Show and Man on the Moon. From his humble beginnings in stand-up comedy, he successfully worked his way up to television and Hollywood fame, starring in films like Ace Ventura: Pet DetectiveThe MaskDumb and DumberLiar LiarBruce Almighty, and many more. He has written one children’s book, How Rowland Rolls, and, in 2005, started The Better U Foundation to reduce poverty and support farmers by promoting the System of Rice Intensification (SRI). He also practices the Transcendental Meditation technique.
