Full Bio: Jeff Krasno is the founder and CEO of Commune Media, host of the Commune podcast, and author of three books including his latest, “Communion: 2020 and the Middle Path Back to Reason, Morality, and Each Other,” (April 2021). Jeff created the global Wanderlust festivals, featuring 65 events in 20 countries that intertwine yoga and the arts. Known as the “MasterClass of Wellness,” Commune offers in-depth courses and a popular podcast (120,000 monthly downloads) featuring long-form interviews with leading well-being teachers, from Deepak Chopra to Russell Brand.

The success of dozens of Wanderlust events around the world spawned Jeff’s first book, "Wanderlust: A Modern Yogi’s Guide to Discovering Your Best Self" (Rodale), which sold 35,000 copies. He next authored its companion cookbook, "Find Your True Fork: Journeys in Healthy, Delicious, and Ethical Eating." His newest book, "Communion: 2020 and the Middle Path Back to Reason, Morality, and Each Other" (Commune Media), is a collection of essays that provide a path through the critical issues impacting Americans today. He excavates topics including the emotional repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, relationships, grief, and the country’s deep political divide. In 2016 Jeff was hand-picked by Oprah Winfrey to be part of her SuperSoul100, a collective of the nation’s leading entrepreneurs with a mission to help improve humanity.

As a child, Jeff traveled the world with his parents, living in Europe and South America. He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in political science and American history from Columbia University. Jeff says his time traveling the globe taught him that “my superpower was creating connection and community.” Today he leads Commune, a multi-dimensional wellness platform with specifically that purpose. He and his wife Schuyler have three daughters and live in Los Angeles, Calif.
