A bout with scarlet fever took his eyesight at a very early age. In this conversation we discuss perseverance, and much more. Richard Edward Turner (born June 16, 1954)[1] is an American expert card mechanic who is known for his card trick performances. He has been honored with a Golden Lion Award in Magic, from Siegfried and Roy in 1982 and the Lynn Searles Award for Excellence in Card Manipulation. He is the 2014 and 2017 recipient of the Close-Up Magician of the Year award from The Academy of Magical Arts, and the subject of the documentary Dealt (2017).
Turner was born in San Diego in 1954, which he dubbed “the year of the full deck” (referring to a standard 52-card deck of playing cards, plus the two jokers). At the age of seven he became infatuated with the television show Maverick.[2][3]
His eyesight failed at the age of nine following his recovery from a bout with scarlet fever.[3] The macula (the center of the retina) of each of Turner’s eyes was completely destroyed, preventing forward vision, and the rest of his retinas suffered a condition he describes as a “shotgun pattern” resembling and functioning as if they had been blasted full of holes by a tiny shotgun filled with bird shot.[2] By the age of thirteen, his vision deteriorated to 20/400, twice as low as the level deemed legally blind in the State of California and, over the years, what little vision Turner possessed gradually deteriorated to the point where he presently sees little more than indiscernible shadows, and those only peripherally.[4]
Turner attended a special school for the visually impaired in Santee, California, where he refused to learn Braille (and never has). His younger brother, David, had been taking karate lessons for nine months, and invited Turner to accompany him. He began karate lessons in 1971 under the tutelage of Master John Murphy, the United States’ founder of Wado-Kai, a Japanese hard style karate and was good at it, and began training at Gene Fisher’s Gym eventually earning a fifth degree black belt in Wado-Kai karate[5]
In 1972 Turner auditioned for a small, non-profit San Diego Christian theater operated by televisi...]]>

“Psychedelics are not suppressed because they are dangerous to users; they’re suppressed because they provoke unconventional thought, which threatens any number of elites and institutions that would rather do our thinking for us.” ~ Dennis McKenna, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss.
Dennis McKenna, 67, is a noted ethnopharmacologist, focusing on pharmacognosy, especially with psilocybin and ayahuasca. After travels to the Amazon, in search of the Sixties experience with his older brother, Terence, Dennis’ curiosity was piqued in a scientific way. He wanted to know how these plants worked.
In 1979, McKenna earned his Masters in Botanical Sciences at the University of Hawaii. With his continued studies in the Botanical Sciences, he earned his Ph.D. in 1984 at the University of British Columbia. He studied the botany, chemistry, and pharmacology of ayahuasca and oo-koo-he, two orally-active tryptamine-based hallucinogens used by the indigenous peoples in Northwest Amazon.
McKenna received post-doctorate fellowships in the Lab of Clinical Pharmacology at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and in the Department of Neurology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He recently completed a project, funded by the Stanley Medical Research Institute, to study the Amazonian ethnomedicine for the treatment of schizophrenia and cognitive deficits.
In 1990, McKenna became director of ethnopharmacology at Shaman Pharmaceuticals. In 1993, he became senior research pharmacognisist for the Aveda Corporation. In 1993, he also founded and continues to serve as VP and board member of Heffter Research Institute, where they are researching use of psilocybin with cancer patients.
In 2001, he joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality and Healing and has since become a popular professor. He serves on the advisory board of The American Botanical Council and on the editorial board of Phytopharmacology.
McKenna’s authored four books and countless research papers. In 1976, he wrote the still popular, cult classic Psilocybin: Magic Mushroom Grower’s Guide.He can be seen in documentaries on the esoteric. He continues to lead expeditions to the Amazon to study the culture, shamanism and ayahuasca.


Far Out, Man
For anyone who’s been to Paonia, CO, it’s no surprise that the small mountain hippie town produced two of the most learned ethnopharmacology luminaries — the dynamic duo, brothers Dennis and his senior, Terence, now deceased. What began as a popular recreational experimentation in the Sixties counterculture opened the door to new realms of legitimate soul-searching, growth and healing. Dennis wrote about his accounts with his brother in his 2012 book, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss. They discovered there was some power in the medicine! Thus began the McKenna’s pursuit in the mysteries of ethnopharmacology — Terence,]]>

The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations. STEPHEN K. HAYES –
Ninjutsu
In the 1970’s Mr. Stephen Hayes traveled to japan to seek out Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi Sensei, the grandmaster of the ninjutsu fighting art.
Without even correspondence from Hatsumi Sensei Mr. Stephen Hayes accomplished the seemingly impossible for a westerner at the time – he began studying the art of the ninja.
After several decades of training Mr. Stephen Hayes brought back the teachings of Hatsumi Sensei and opened his own schools to spread awareness of one of the most esoteric fighting styles known to man.
Black Belt magazine regards Mr. Stephen Hayes as “A Legend; one of the most infuential martial arts masters alive in the world today” 
In the late 1980’s Mr. Hayes serendipitously began serving as the head of the protection detail to his holiness the Dalai Lama.
In this episode we cover Mr. Hayes’ story, his adventure through Japan and how he has changed the face of martial arts in the west forever.
The Ninja:
A ninja (忍者?) or shinobi (忍び?) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations. Their covert methods of waging war contrasted the ninja with the samurai, who observed strict rules about honor and combat.The shinobi proper, a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries, appeared in the Sengoku or “warring states” period, in the 15th century,but antecedents may have existed in the 14th century, and possibly even in the 12th century (Heian or early Kamakura era).
In the unrest of the Sengoku period (15th–17th centuries), mercenaries and spies for hire became active in the Iga Province and the adjacent area around the village of Kōga, and it is from the area’s clans that much of our knowledge of the ninja is drawn. Following the unification of Japan under the Tokugawa shogunate (17th century), the ninja faded into obscurity. A number of shinobi manuals, often centered on Chinese military philosophy, were written in the 17th and 18th centuries, most notably the Bansenshukai (1676).
The Bujinkan:
The Bujinkan (武神館) is an international martial arts organization  based in Japan and headed by Masaaki Hatsumi. The combat system taught by this organization comprises nine separate ryūha, or schools, which are collectively referred to as Bujinkan Budō Taijutsu. The Bujinkan is most commonly associated with ninjutsu. However, Masaaki Hatsumi uses the term Budo (meaning martial way) as he says the ryūha are descended from historical samurai schools that teach samurai martial tactics and ninjutsu schools that teach ninja tactics.
Toshindo:
To-Shin Do is a martial art founded by Black Belt Hall of Fame instructor Stephen K. Hayes in 1997. It is a modernized version of ninjutsu, and differs from the traditional form taught by Masaaki Hatsumi’s  Bujinkan organization.  Instruction focuses on threats found in contemporary western society. In addition to hand-to-hand combat skills, students are exposed to: methods for survival in hostile environments, security protection for dignitaries, how to instruct classes and run a school, classical Japanese weapons, meditation mind science, and health restoration yoga. The headquarters school (hombu) is located in Dayton, Ohio, USA.

Tom Campbell is a NASA physicist, researcher, consciousness explorer and author; in this episode we cover his book “My Big TOE”



Tom Campbell began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out Of The Body, Far Journeys, and The Ultimate Journey) at Monroe Laboratories in the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe’s laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the same time. Campbell has been experimenting with, and exploring the subjective and objective mind ever since. For the past thirty years, Campbell has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness.
During that same time period, he has excelled as a working scientist, a professional physicist dedicated to pushing back the frontiers of cutting edge technology, large-system simulation, technology development and integration, and complex system vulnerability and risk analysis. Presently, and for the past 20 years, he has been at the heart of developing US missile defense systems.
Tom is the “TC (physicist)” described in Bob Monroe’s second book Far Journeys and has been a serious explorer of the frontiers of reality, mind, consciousness, and psychic phenomena since the early 1970s. My Big TOE is a model of existence and reality that is based directly on Campbell’s scientific research and first hand experience. It represents the results and conclusions of thirty years of careful scientific exploration of the boundaries and contents of reality from both the physical and metaphysical viewpoints. The author has made every effort to approach his explorations without bias or preconceived notions. There is no belief system, dogma, creed, or unusual assumptions at the root of My Big TOE.
By demanding high quality repeatable, empirical, evidential data to separate what’s real (exists independently and externally) from what’s imaginary or illusory, Campbell has scientifically derived this general model of reality.



Synopsis of the My Big TOE Trilogy
My Big TOE, written by a nuclear physicist in the language of contemporary Western culture, unifies science and philosophy, physics and metaphysics, mind and matter, purpose and meaning, the normal and the paranormal. The entirety of human experience (mind, body, and spirit) including both our objective and subjective worlds, are brought together under one seamless scientific understanding. 
If you have a logical, open, and inquisitive mind – an attitude of scientific pragmatism that appreciates the elegance of fundamental truth and the thrill of breakthrough – you will enjoy this journey of personal and scientific discovery.


Based upon careful scientific research and logical deduction, this is a book for all who have an interest in the nature of the reality in which they exist. My Big TOE is not only about scientific theory, function, process, and discovery – but also speaks to each individual reader about their innate capabilities. Readers will learn to appreciate that their human potential stretches far beyond the limitations of the physical universe.


This trilogy delivers the next major scientific conceptual breakthrough since relativity and quantum mechanics raised scientific eyebrows in the first half of the twentieth century. No catch, no megalomania, no hypothetical wackiness, no goofy beliefs,]]>

The mystic paintings of Alex Grey articulate realms of psychedelic visionary consciousness, revealing interwoven energies of body and soul, love and spirit, illuminating the anatomical core of each being. Alex’s visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, have reached millions through his five books, the exhibition and extensive reproduction of his artwork, speaking appearances including a popular TED talk, stage sets for major rock bands, video animation, and Grammy award winning album art. 
Allyson Grey, MFA, is a painter, social sculptor, and Alex’s creative collaborator, life partner and studio mate since art school in 1975.

Through her blog on art and life, “Ask Allyson, she serves as a muse to artists worldwide. 
Together the Grey’s co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, (CoSM; cosm.org), a spiritual retreat center for artists outside of New York City.

Srikumar Rao is a Happiness teacher and an advisor to senior business executives. He used to be an executive at Warner Communications and McGraw-Hill, but then created his popular MBA course: Creativity and Personal Mastery (CPM). It was a course designed to help people find their purpose and creativity, and was taught by Srikumar at some of the world’s leading business schools, including the Columbia Business School in New York and the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. He offers his courses and advice on his Rao Institute website, and has written a number of books:
Are You Ready to Succeed: Unconventional Strategies for Achieving Personal Mastery in Business and Life (2015) : A book that draws on the strategies and philosophies of some of the wisest people in history to help the reader find material success and spiritual growth.
Happiness at Work: Be Resilient, Motivated and Successful – No Matter What ( 2010) : Srikumar shows the reader that how they see things is what causes their unhappiness. He coaches the reader to resist labelling situations as bad and to see them as neutral instead, giving them exercises to help achieve this, and talking about the opportunities that this can then bring.
He also has created The Personal Mastery Program: Discovering Passion and Purpose in Your Life and Work CD course in which he lays out the basis for lasting fulfilment in life and work. He covers the three pillars that form the basis of this fulfilment: awareness, intention and passion, along with exercises that will help the listener deconstruct and rebuild the mental models that they use to view the world.
A variation of his CPM course is also available called The Happiness Matrix, which is described as a two hour growth documentary.
He gave a TED talk entitled “Plug into your hard-wired happiness” in which he talked about the way we look for happiness, our mental models and the If-Then model of how we try to achieve happiness.








In this episode, we get into why chasing happiness or the next thing DOESN’T work why Positive thinking can be a TRAP.







09 OCT WHY POSITIVE THINKING IS BAD FOR YOU
Posted at 23:18h in Blog by Srikumar Rao
Positive Thinking is so firmly enshrined in our culture that knocking it is a little like attacking motherhood or apple pie. Many persons swear by positive thinking and quite a few have been helped by it. Nevertheless, it is not a very effective tool and can be downright harmful in some cases. There are much better ways to get the benefits that positive thinking allegedly provides.
Perhaps the statement that best exemplifies positive thinking is “When life hands you a lemon, make lemonade.” It seems so self-evident that this is a good thing that we never question the wisdom of the adage. But it does not take a whole lot of digging to unearth the flaws in this reasoning.
First, did fate really hand you a lemon or was this merely your initial, unthinking response? Second, is a lemon really a bad thing, something that you would rather not have, but now that you do have it you will somehow salvage something by making lemonade? Finally, it is quite stressful to be handed a lemon until such time as you figure out how to make lemonade. Do you really have to go through this phase?
No matter what happens to us in life we tend to think of it as “good” or “bad”. And most of us tend to use the “bad” label three to ten times as often as the “good” label. And when we say something is bad, the odds grow overwhelming that we will experience it as such. And that is when we need positive thinking. We have been given something bad, a real lemon, and we better scramble and make some lemonade out of it and salvage something out of this “bad” situation.

He is internationally renowned for his countless ice endeavors that range from being up to his neck in a cylinder filled with ice cubes for over 90 minutes, swimming long distances under polar ice, running a marathon barefoot to climbing the Everest in nothing more than a pair of shorts.
All of these gained him worldwide fame and his nickname: The Iceman. Wim has shown what the human body is capable of once you find the flow within your physical and mental state. Right now he especially sees his new challenge in passing on his method to others to give everyone the opportunity to reach out and do more than what they thought they were capable of. Through the right training and exercises, you can strengthen your inner nature and prevent disease.
 

A new breathing method and the confrontation with the cold
As a first step, you can start by training the way you breathe. Wim developed his method by the teachings of nature. As a result, Wim ran half a marathon barefooted above the polar circle, climbed the highest mountain on earth in shorts, and many other achievements! Training the way you breathe and exposing yourself gradually and controlled to the cold can help you control and positively influence your immune system.
The benefits of Wim’s method
Besides helping you learn how to control your autonomic nervous system, Wim’s method has the following benefits:

* Positive influence on the immune system
* Positive influence on your mind and body
* Improvement of blood circulation
* Improvement of concentration and focus
* Greater self-confidence and conscious development

Hof holds 20 world records, including a world record for longest ice bath.[2] Wim describes his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures as being able to “turn his own thermostat up” through breathing exercises.[citation needed]
2007: He climbed to 6.7 kilometres (22,000 ft) altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts and shoes, but failed to reach the summit due to a recurring foot injury.[3][4]
2008: He broke his previous world record by staying immersed in ice for 1 hour, 13 minutes and 48 seconds at Guinness World Records 2008.[citation needed] The night before, he performed the feat on the Today Show.[citation needed]
2009: In February Hof reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in his shorts within two days.[5] Hof completed a full marathon (42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi)), above the arctic circle in Finland, in temperatures close to −20 °C (−4 °F). Dressed in nothing but shorts, Hof finished in 5 hours and 25 minutes.]]>

GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven’s Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US – Quest For The Lost Civilisation and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age – have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognised as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity’s past.


In this episode we begin to introduce some of Mr. Hancock’s findings; we talk about the antiquity of civilization and we scratch the surface of the nature of our true selves and what it means to exist here – on planet earth.


Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Hancock’s early years were spent in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Later he went to school and university in the northern English city of Durham and graduated from Durham University in 1973 with First Class Honours in Sociology. He went on to pursue a career in quality journalism, writing for many of Britain’s leading newspapers including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976-1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983.
In the early 1980’s Hancock’s writing began to move consistently in the direction of books. His first book (Journey Through Pakistan, with photographers Mohamed Amin and Duncan Willetts) was published in 1981. It was followed by Under Ethiopian Skies (1983), co-authored with Richard Pankhurst and photographed by Duncan Willets , Ethiopia: The Challenge of Hunger (1984), and AIDS: The Deadly Epidemic (1986) co-authored with Enver Carim. In 1987 Hancock began work on his widely-acclaimed critique of foreign aid, Lords of Poverty, which was published in 1989. African Ark (with photographers Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith) was published in 1990.
Hancock’s breakthrough to bestseller status came in 1992 with the publication of The Sign and The Seal, his epic investigation into the mystique and whereabouts today of the lost Ark of the Covenant. ‘Hancock has invented a new genre,’ commented The Guardian, ‘an intellectual whodunit by a do-it-yourself sleuth.’ Fingerprints of the Gods, published in 1995 confirmed Hancock’s growing reputation. Described as ‘one of the intellectual landmarks of the decade’ by the Literary Review, this book has now sold more than three million copies and continues to be in demand all around the world. Subsequent works such as Keeper Of Genesis (The Message of the Sphinx in the US) with co-author Robert Bauval, and Heaven’s Mirror, with photographer Santha Faiia, have also been Number 1 bestsellers, the latter accompanied by Hancock’s three-part television series Quest For the Lost Civilisation.

The popular pastor and New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God shows us how to pursue and realize our dr
eams, live in the moment, and joyfully do the things that make us come alive.
Each of us was created for something great—we just need to figure out what it is and find the courage to do it. Whether it’s writing the next great American novel, starting a business, or joining a band, Rob Bell wants to help us make those dreams become reality. Our path is ours and ours alone to pursue, he reminds us, and in doing so, we derive great joy because we are living our passions.
How to Be Here lays out concrete steps we can use to define and follow our dreams, interweaving engaging stories, lessons from biblical figures, insights gleaned from Rob’s personal experience, and practical advice. Rob gives you the support and insight you need to silence your critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome.
Like Stephen Pressfield’s classic The War of Art, How to Be Here will inspire readers to seek the lives they were created to lead.

An internationally recognized speaker on personal growth and transformation, Vishen’s mission is to revolutionize the global education system by bringing new models of enhancing human potential to people everywhere and building a school for Humanity 2.0.  Vishen’s new NY Times bestselling book, The Code of the Extraordinary Mind: 10 Unconventional Laws to Redefine Your Life & Succeed on Your Own Terms, is one of the best books we’ve read all year.
As a speaker Vishen is known for talks on entrepreneurial mindset and company culture. Lakhiani is also the founder of A-Fest, a biohacking and personal development event for entrepreneurs and authors; Mindvalley Academy, an “online university” for personal development; and Omvana, a health and fitness app for mindfulness.

Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Vishen moved to Michigan, USA in 1995 to study at the University of Michigan, where he majored in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. There he discovered AIESEC, a non-profit student run organization dedicated to nurturing young leaders into becoming global leaders who want to make a difference in society, and eventually became the Vice President for the USA team, in charge of nominating and sending AIESEC students abroad for internship programs.
In 2001 he moved to New York to work for a technology company in the legal industry. To deal with the stress of the job, he turned to meditation, and studied The Silva Method, a popular mindfulness program developed by Jose Silva. Inspired, he became a qualified instructor and began teaching meditation classes for the program.

From Wade’s webpage:
I began my journey to health, fitness and spiritual awakening at 15 when I was faced with my sister’s terminal illness. It was at this time I began lifting weights, studying nutrition, and looking for a deeper meaning to life.
My thirst for knowledge led me to read hundreds of books. I then travelled to study with Physical, Financial, & Spiritual Masters from around the world.
It’s been an interesting journey to say the least. I’ve lived in ashrams, competed at the Mr. Universe as a drug free vegetarian, wrote several books, and co-founded a nutrition company.
For years I watched and learned from my mentors, heroes and coaches online. Today it blows my mind that I’m routinely featured online as a guest expert, and as a keynote speaker at health and wellness seminars around the globe. It’s truly amazing!
One of the greatest gifts is to serve as an Advisor to the American Anti-Cancer Institute. This allows me to help people recover from the very disease that took my sister’s life.
Although some people might doubt me, it’s possible to turn suffering into joy.



Over the years I’ve continued my ongoing quest to uncover the deeper mysteries of the human experience physically, mentally and spiritually.

Dr. John Gray is the author of the most well-known and trusted relationship book of all time, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. USA Today listed his book as one of the top 10 most influential books of the last quarter century. In hardcover, it was the #1 bestselling book of the 1990s. Dr. Gray’s books are translated into approximately 45 languages in more than 100 countries and continues to be a bestseller.







Dr. Gray has written over 20 books. His most recent book is Beyond Mars and Venus. His Mars/Venus book series has forever changed the way men and women view their relationships.










John helps men and women better understand and respect their differences in both personal and professional relationships. His approach combines specific communication techniques with healthy, nutritional choices that create the brain and body chemistry for lasting health, happiness and romance.
His many books, blogs and free online workshops at MarsVenus.com provide practical insights to improve relationships at all stages of life and love. An advocate of health and optimal brain function, he also provides natural solutions for overcoming depression, anxiety and stress to support increased energy, libido, hormonal balance and better sleep.

Dr. Gray has appeared repeatedly on Oprah, as well as on The Dr. Oz Show, TODAY, CBS This Morning, Good Morning America, and others. He has been profiled in Time, Forbes, USA Today, and People. He was also the subject of a three hour special hosted by Barbara Walters.





 







Everyone hits bumps in the road. Some can feel like black holes that are impossible to escape and have swallowed everything. But each loss should be viewed as a lesson that can teach us how to improve ourselves and progress to a better future. Sometimes, we just need to be given a little direction and the right tools to learn from those hard lessons. I wrote Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus only after experiencing the tremendous heartbreak of a failed relationship and then feeling the immense joy of finding the true love of my life. My Soul Mate, Bonnie. I was able to learn from my past mistakes, dispel my past assumptions and create a better understanding of the love I could give and the love I wanted to receive in all my relationships. Most people know me because of my books on love and relationships. But I realized a long time ago that our relationships were dependent upon more than strong connections, good communication skills and a better understanding of our differences. They were also influenced by our health. If you aren’t healthy in your mind and body, it’s hard to be healthy outside your mind and body. So if you feel sick, tired, exhausted, stressed and generally unhappy, this will cause your relationships to feel the same way. Great communication skills is essential but on a physical level we all need the right nutrition to help our bodies feel happiness, love, focus, peace, energy, motivation and passion. I have dedicated the last 30 years to finding healthy solutions to the most common ailments affecting our happiness in life. I continue to look for the right balance of proper nutrition, useful exercise and natural supplements that will help you feel better in your mind, your body and your relationships.




“Experience is your best teacher,” John explains, “Many people reach a level of education and think they know everything there is to know. Many of my colleagues and friends have degrees from prestigious schools but they spend years working alone. I encourage them to get out of their offices and labs and get into the lives of real people to gain a better understanding of how...]]>

Nassim Haramein is a scientist that has spent much of his life trying to find a unified theory of everything, using the connections between physics, mathematics and other disciplines along the way. His work has led to him creating a number of groundbreaking theories and patented inventions, as well as founding a number of bodies to help further humanities progress. He is the founder and Director of Research at the Resonance Science Foundation (previously the Resonance Project Foundation that he founded in 2004), a body created to explore unification principles and their possible implications on our world.
In 2014, Nassim founded The Resonance Academy Delegate Program, the first and only unified physics educational program of its kind. The RSF also researches ancient artefacts, exploring the possibility that a more ancient and more technologically advanced civilization may have existed on the planet before our own, one that could do incredible things that we still can’t today. In 2015 he opened a laboratory which he oversees as the Executive Director of Research and Development.
He leads a team of scientists and engineers in trying to find ways to apply his theories about vacuum energy and gravitational effects. Torus Tech LLC was born to move the technology development into the for-profit world where it might be monetized and resourced in a manner that would allow it the best chance of developing. An element of trying to store vacuum energy is the utilization of crystal technology called ARK Crystals. The core of Nassim’s findings is that there is a fundamental geometry of space that connects us all, from the very tiny quantum scale, all the way up to the massive events and bodies in our universe. As part of this, Nassim’s paper Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass, a paper that predicted the charge radius of the proton, was confirmed with more accuracy than any other theoretical framework. A feature-length documentary called The Connected Universe is based on Nassim’s work.

Subsequently, having led many studies which explore unification principles, Haramein now is a director of his own laboratory. Specifically focusing on cosmology, quantum mechanics, mathematics, chemistry and biology, Haramein also acknowledges sociological subjects including anthropology and history in the construction of his cosmological theories. This multidisciplinary focus that Haramein’s has acquired has led him to concentrate on the quantum and molecular scale of cosmological objects within the universe.
Haramein explains the origins of the universe in a simple, geometric fashion, and has an unusual research method: observing articles written at the beginning of the 20th century and comparing them to current research theories. As unique as his ideas are, Haramein has and continues to make a significant contribution to ideas at the frontier of scientific knowledge.

Ido Portal is a movement coach who is obsessed with movement, of all varieties. After embracing Capoeira at the age of 15, an Afro-Brazilian martial art with numerous elements including dance and music, he embarked on a worldwide journey to find a Movement teacher. Not finding one, he resolved to learn all he could from people in other disciplines, learning from them as they learned from him. Now, he runs workshops around the world through his Ido Portal Company and has created a yearly event called “The Movement Camp”, a gathering where movement fans from all areas and disciplines can meet and swap information. This fits into Ido’s ideas about Movement Culture, the way that you need a culture to move in, people to play with and places to practice. His Ido Portal website is another way to facilitate this aspect. Movement-X will be happening in Seoul this October, a seminar about exposing people to the concepts he teaches. In 2015, Ido began to coach MMA fighter, Connor McGregor, helping him to flesh out his movement skills in the hope that it would give Connor the edge in his fights. Connor won his next fight against Jose Aldo, who hadn’t lost an MMA fight in a decade. This created a massive interest in Ido and his movement coaching philosophy. In August, Conner fought boxer Floyd Mayweather in a change of discipline from his MMA skills. Connor lost the fight but was quite widely believed to have done better than expected.










The human body is a complex structure, continuously changing with time and transforming with various activities and actions. Certain sports and activities involve different bodily movements which can drastically alter the human frame. The more a particular action is undertaken, the more certain muscles of the body change. The way in which an individual moves and exercises has a detrimental effect on their

physical shape and mental state. While some movements make us feel stronger and more confident, other movements make us feel more relaxed and increasingly in tune with the environment we reside within.
Coining the term ‘movement culture’, fitness specialist Ido Portal explores the ways in which the human body can move and advance. Having an interest in sport early on, from the age of 15, Portal began learning traditional martial arts and developed a fascination with how sport can push physical boundaries and increase strength and control. Travelling across the globe, while studying and teaching a number of sports classes, Portal began learning from a variety of people from different disciplines

(including performers, yogis, and athletes). Using a combination of disciplines Ido has developed a unique method that takes into account all the benefits of traditional disciplines, and as a result, he has developed his unique outlook on movement and how to best use and transform the human body. Unlike traditional martial arts, however, Portal does not see the benefit in specific movements or practices, and

instead, promotes the advantages of taking into account various movement techniques from diverse cultures and traditions.
With the success of his movement theory, Portal conducts movement camps, traveling across the world to exchange and learn from multiple practices. His method champions cross-disciplinary dialogue and learning between various sports, spiritual practices and anatomists and according to Portal, each individual’s experience is beneficial to acknowledge and learn from

Siegel asserts the importance of mindfulness in the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle; suggesting that if individuals practice it long-term, it induces a unique state of brain activation, benefiting and transforming the mind in the long-run. Specifically, he suggests that the long-term benefits of mindfulness include the reduction of stress, binge-eating and also increased optimism and self-control.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-104-dr-dan-siegel/">Episode 104 – Dr. Dan Siegel on Stress, Irrational Fears, Mindfulness and more</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thehumanxp.com">The Human Experience Podcast</a>.</p> A Harvard medical graduate with a postgraduate degree in medical education at UCLA, Siegel additionally served at the National Institute of Mental Health as a Research Fellow where he studied relationships and family interactions.



Daniel Siegel is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, with a strong interest in how social interactions, particularly attachment experiences, can influence the emotions and behavior of developing children. He is a neuropsychiatrist (relating to mental disorders attributable to diseases of the nervous system.) and interpersonal neurobiologist (a field which seeks to understand the mind and mental health, by constructing a “whole picture” view of what is going on).
He has founded and takes part in, a number of bodies that aim to help people learn about, and better cope with, their own minds/brains. He is the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA. He is also the Executive Director of the Mindsight Institute, an educational body that offers various courses and seminars to teach “mindsight” to individuals, and the benefits this brings. He was also given a wide range of talks and seminars in front of all manner of people, including Pope John Paul II, Google University, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.








Mindfulness is a popular relaxation technique, used to banish the stresses of our increasingly tiring day to day lives. Practiced globally, it is the art of intentional awareness in the moment; an individual experience practiced in the presence. The importance of mindfulness is illustrated in many intersections of psychology and psychiatry; used as a useful means of establishing a healthy mindset for psychological well-being. In particular, one field where mindfulness is valued and praised as an efficient psychological tool is interpersonal neurobiology; a term coined by Dr. Daniel J. Siegel- a mindfulness expert. Based on many aligning fields of scientific research (yet not constrained by the findings), interpersonal neurobiology is a multidisciplinary subject which aims to critique and understand the mind by piecing together research from various academic disciplines into one perspective. Comparable to a jigsaw puzzle, Siegel’s research draws on many branches of psychology, neurobiology, and psychiatry; creating a rich framework in which to critique and understand the subjective and interpersonal aspects of human reality and experience.
A Harvard medical graduate with a postgraduate degree in medical education at UCLA, Siegel additionally served at the National Institute of Mental Health as a Research Fellow where he studied relationships and family interactions.

Specifically, he suggests that the long-term benefits of mindfulness include the reduction of stress, binge-eating and also increased optimism and self-control.
In addition to promoting the importance of mindfulness, Siegel invented the term “mindsight” which describes the human capacity to understand and perceive one’s mind and additionally other individuals’. According to Siegel, the use of mindsight not only enhances our relationships with others, but it also allows us to understand the inner workings of our brains. Specifically, he suggests that practicing mindsight helps us recognize and reflect upon the emotions we are experiencing rather than being overwhelmed by them. For Siegel, mindsight is “larger” than mindfulness, as it not only includes awareness in the moment but also encourages the individual to monitor what is happening, not only to themselves but also to other people around them.

He is a monthly columnist for Men’s Health, the largest Men’s publication in the world.
Unlike many sports, running is a physical activity that greatly varies. Some of us prefer to run at a fast pace for several minutes, while others among us are more adapted to run for longer distances and endure lengthier running times. Running is an activity that is characterized by many terms: from jogging to sprinting, and can last a various amount of time, depending on the individual and their planned activity. It can be a solitary activity or one used for social engagement and interaction. My point here is that running is an activity that can be tailored to the individual and their abilities, preferences, and needs, and is not regimented with rules and regulations- anyone can do it, at any given time. Usually, however, after several hours of running most people will stop for a break, due to muscle fatigue, cramp and the physical and mental tiredness that comes with undertaking any means of exercise. However, some individuals have taken the sport to the extremes and can push to the body to their limit, resulting in endeavors that would surprise even the most sporty of people among us. One such individual is Dean Karnazes, a Californian- based runner who is also known as ‘Ultra Marathon Man.’ Karnazes has a remarkable running ability which allows him to run for great distances, over long periods of time without needing to pause to catch a breath. Also a published author, Karnazes has written a book entitled Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner which documents his extraordinary experience as an athlete; one of which was his recent achievement of running 50 marathons in 50 US states in 50 days.


Named by Men’s Fitness and other sports publications as one of the fittest people alive today, Karnazes is also one of the Time’s top 100 influential people. His ability developed from a range of diverse assets: his determination, ongoing practice and his natural running ability which he developed in infancy. Karnazes began to test his mental and physical limits as a child dabbling in not only long distance running but also cycling. Since then Karnazes has developed a ‘hard work, no excuses’ attitude which has resulted in his capability to run very long distances with little sleep and muscular rest. Because of this, some of his accomplishments include running for 350 miles and managing 80 hours and 44 minutes without any sleep. What’s more,]]>

Episode 100 – Brian Brushwood on the Art of Deception, his career in Magic, and Scam School http://www.thehumanxp.com/brian-brushwood-ep100/ Tue, 25 Jul 2017 11:54:25 +0000 http://www.thehumanxp.com/?p=3629 http://www.thehumanxp.com/brian-brushwood-ep100/#respond http://www.thehumanxp.com/brian-brushwood-ep100/feed/ 0 <p>Brian Brushwood, born January 17, 1975, in Fountain Valley, California, is a well-rounded and successful magician, author, podcaster, lecturer, and comedian. Brian was born in California, but has also lived in Norway, Colorado and Texas, where he currently resides with his wife and 3 children. How does that sound for a fun, fulfilling life? Too good to be true, you say? Well if that’s not enough, Brian is also known for the series Scam School, Podcasts: Weirings, Cordkillers, Night Attack & more, and is the author of six books. If that’s not enough to make you feel as though you’ve got a lot of catching up to do, Brushwood co-hosts a YouTube show called The Modern Rogue and has appeared on national television numerous times including the yummy Food Network, CNN and even The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.<br /> We were dropping it from geosynchronous orbit with this one our monster 100th episode. @shwood has been an influencer and KNOWS his craft. This conversation was EASY MODE as time evaporated. You'll love this one folks! </p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thehumanxp.com/brian-brushwood-ep100/">Episode 100 – Brian Brushwood on the Art of Deception, his career in Magic, and Scam School</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thehumanxp.com">The Human Experience Podcast</a>.</p> Brian Brushwood, born January 17, 1975, in Fountain Valley, California, is a well-rounded and successful magician, author, podcaster, lecturer, and comedian.

If that’s not enough to make you feel as though you’ve got a lot of catching up to do, Brushwood co-hosts a YouTube show called The Modern Rogue and has appeared on national television numerous times including the yummy Food Network, CNN and even The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Brian catapulted his life into the awesome state it is, all beginning with a magic kit he received as a child for Christmas and his being introduced to scientific skepticism in his pseudoscience class in college. With all of his exciting work experience like testing video games and designing high end computer systems for a well known computer company, he wisely chose to follow his heart. So, beating the inward path of his heart’s desire, he began performing his magic show full time. As a result, Brian manifested the exciting and exotic lifestyle of his dreams!
Brian was asked about myth debunking in his various shows. Brushwood responded,“Part of the reason I love educating the masses as how to deceive is from my experience, because I got into magic before I took this pseudoscience and paranormal course, so I had these tools on how to fool people and I just had this vague understanding that people are really easy to fool, and it’s not that we are broken, or dumb, or bad, or whatever. It’s that the brain is built a certain way and magicians take advantage of that. And, it was only after taking the pseudoscience class that it crystallized everything and I realized that that’s exactly what scam artists do as well. So, if I can get more people familiar with the tools and familiar with how easy it is to deceive other people, maybe more people will begin to question their own experiences.” Anyone wondering or on the path to figure out what this life is really all about or wondering the highly asked question, how can I change my life? This is a highly recommended podcast worth going back and listening to, but ONLY if you want your life to change for the better 😉

That evolved into a series of articles and documentaries for VBS.tv, an online network founded by filmmaker Spike Jonze, and is now owned by Vice dot com.

He studied anthropology and science at the University of Chicago, and at The New School, a private research university in Lower Manhattan. As a sophomore,

At first glance, one may easily dismiss Hamilton Morris, 30, as on of those millennials who needs to get a “real job.” Ah, but looks can be deceiving. This millennial journalist, writer, researcher, editor, and documentary filmmaker is well-read, well-spoken, well-traveled, and well-versed in ways that put most of us old hippies to shame.
Hamilton Morris was born April 14, 1987, to parents Julia Sheehan and renowned documentary filmmaker Errol Morris, and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He studied anthropology and science at the University of Chicago, and at The New School, a private research university in Lower Manhattan. As a sophomore, he began writing Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia, a monthly column for Vice Magazine. That evolved into a series of articles and documentaries for VBS.tv, an online network founded by filmmaker Spike Jonze, and is now owned by Vice dot com. Vice brought the series to HBO and Viceland TV. He is also the science editor for Vice Magazine, and a Vice correspondent.
Morris’ unconventional research into psychoactive drugs is not just Dude, Where’s My Car?-type fodder. He’s the media’s go-to consultant for psychoactive drugs, and still conducts pharmacological research at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, with an emphasis on the synthesis and history of “dissociative anesthetics” — a class of hallucinogens which distorts perceptions of sight and sound, and produce the feeling of detachment — dissociation — from the environment and self, according to his Wikipedia page. His research has been published in technical, clinical, and pharmacology periodicals, like the Journal of Analytical Toxicology. He is also a regular contributor to the esteemed Harper’s Magazine.
Being comfortable in front of the camera, Morris’ first TV appearance was in a 2002 1st-generation iPod commercial. He has gone on to produce at least a dozen video documentaries on his own, including, Nzambi: Wade Davis’ Theory of TTX-Mediated Zombification in Haiti, and Swaziland: Gold Mine of Marijuana. His Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia has aired at least six episodes on Viceland, including The Story of the South African Quaalude, and Magic Mushroom’s in Mexico. He’s a contributor to the What’s In My Baggie? documentary He’s currently writing a book about clandestine chemistry and the murder of 1970s iconic mycologist, Steven H. Pollock, who published many articles on the potential of mushrooms to treat illness and improve quality of life. Pollock also penned Magic Mushroom Cultivation.

Where In the Cosmos Is Hamilton Morris?
His may sound like a psychonaut’s dream job, but Morris’ interest goes beyond getting high and zoning out. “His reporting is focused on the role psychoactive drugs play in different cultures and the international drug trade,” says his HBO bio page. Indeed, there’s work involved. No rest for the wired.
Morris was 13 when he had his first drug experience. It was with a friend, smoking Salvia Divinorum in that friend’s Volvo, he said in a June 2, 2012, Guardian interview. He recalled feeling “Just astonishment that those states are even possible, that anyone can reach them so effortlessly.”
Morris is cautious about what he ingests. He saw a friend at the university go “permanently insane” — he became schizophrenic, he told the Guardian. And, as he’s posted on a Reddit thread earlier in the year, there are a few drugs he will never try: 4-chloroamphetamine, 6-hydroxydopamine, domoic, and ciguatoxin. Still, he is frequently asked how he landed such a lucrative gig, which some think is all about dudes going wild....]]>

He was featured in a August 11, 1996, NYT New York Magazine. He’s even written satire for the Journal of Irreproducible Results — Yes! It’s out there!
Radin’s three books — The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena; (1997); Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences In A Quantum Reality; (2006); and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award winner, SUPERNORMAL: Science, Yoga, & the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities (2013) — are still used as launching pads by parapsychologists and quantum geeks alike. All books have been translated into a dozen languages worldwide. His fourth book, on the subject of magic, is due out in early 2018.
Before joining IONS, Radin held appointments at Princeton University (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research – PEAR); the University of Edinburgh (Parapsychology Fellowship); the University of Nevada; the Interval Research Corp; and SRI, International, where he was part of classified military research, a la Men Who Stare At Goats. He’s been president of the Parapsychology Association twice. Previous to his parapsychology research, he applied his engineering know-how in R & D at both AT&T Bell and GTE labs.
So far, during his IONS tenure, Radin spent a month in 2010 lecturing in India as the National Visiting Professor of the Indian Council of Philosophical Research, a program within the Indian government’s Ministry of Human Resource Development. In 2013 and 2014, he gave invited lectures in Kuala Lumpur at the International Center for Leadership and Governance, an organization supported by the Central Bank of Malaysia. In 2015, he spoke at the Australian Leadership Retreat, a confidential program for Australian government, business, education, and military leaders.
Radin has appeared on dozens of TV shows, ranging from BBC’s Horizon to PBS’ Closer to Truth; to Oprah and Larry King Live&. He’s given more than 350 interviews and talks, including invited presentations at Harvard, Stanford, Cambridge, Princeton, and the Sorbonne; and for industries, including Google, Johnson & Johnson; and for US government organizations, including the Navy and DARPA. All of this from a man who originally dreamed of being a concert violinist … until he was blissfully blinded by science.
“The universe looks less like a big machine than a big thought” – Dean Radin
 
The Poetics of Noetics
Apollo 14 astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell founded IONS in 1973, not long after returning from an awe-inspiring trip to the Moon. As his capsule floated past the Moon, he was “engulfed by a profound sense of universal connectedness.”
“On the trip home, gazing through 240,000 miles of space toward the stars and the planet from which I had come, I suddenly experienced the universe as intelligent, loving, harmonious. My view of our planet was a glimpse of divinity. We went to the Moon as technicians; we returned as humanitarians.
“You develop an instant, global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it.”

Daniele Bolelli may have initially gravitated toward the martial arts for the discipline created between mind and body.

Little did he know is that one day he would have to call upon all he’d learned to rise to overcome a barrage of major life challenges, and save his soul in the process.
Born in 1974 in Milan, Italy, to a modern philosopher father and an author/journalist mother, Bolelli was steeped in an inquisitive upbringing. After graduating high school, he left Milan for Los Angeles, and attended Santa Monica College, where he now teaches. He earned his BA in anthropology at UCLA, and continued there to earn his Ph.D. in American Indian Studies, and another in history from California State University – Long Beach (CSULB), where, in both, he also taught. Additionally, he did more graduate work in history at Cardiff University.
Bolelli co-authored his first book at age 20, and then made the leap to solo publishing at age 22. La Tenera Arte del Guerriero, a philosophical exploration of the martial arts, grew popular within and beyond martial artists because the philosophy could be applied to everyday life. He translated the book to English, added three new chapters, and released it in the US in 2003 as, On the Warrior’s Path: Philosophy, Fighting, and the Martial Arts. In 2008, he added two more chapters and released a new US edition. In 2011, the book was translated and released in Russia.
Also, in 2011, Bolelli released 50 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know: Religion, in the US. In the same year he released iGod in Italian. In 2013 he released the US version, Create Your Own Religion: A How-To Book Without Instructions, and then a Finnish version in 2014.
In 2014, Bolelli and friend, pro-skateboarder and musician, Mike Vallely, co-penned, Fist Fight. (He and Vallely would later collaborate on the 2015 podcast, The Mike V Show. In December 2015, he released his latest book, Not Afraid: On Fear, Heartbreak, Raising A Baby Girl, and Cage Fighting.
Between the writing, teaching, martial arts, and MMA (mix martial arts) fighting, Bolelli was featured in a few video productions, including the highly acclaimed, highly rated Spike-TV documentary, I am Bruce Lee. His introduction into the podcasting world led him to produce his own, The Drunken Taoist, named “The Best of iTunes 2012” in philosophy about a month after it hit the free market airwaves. The podcast’s namesake is Bolelli’s hero, Ikkyu Sojun, an iconoclastic Japanese Buddhist Monk, and poet, known to frequently over-imbibe. Sojun eventually became a vagabond. (Bolelli also released a series of martial arts instructional videos accompanying The Drunken Taoist podcast). After his brief podcast venture with Vallely, he went on to produce his own History On Fire. The podcast combines his love of history, the martial arts, and heroic characters — “a place where history and epic collide.”

The Warrior’s Path Is Paved With Tears
The first thing that greets you upon entering Bolelli’s official website, is him with a black eye, flipping the bird in an MMA-gloved hand, while carrying a stack of books in the other. The sentence, “Answering defiance with a defiant smile and raised middle finger,” makes the bold proclomation above his picture. He has earned the right to wear that defiant smile — and to flip that bird! He wrote Not Afraid about that humbling, life-changing experience.

Hamilton has been all over the tube — with or without pro-beach volleyball player wife, Gabrielle Reece — in commercials, and appearances on Hell’s Kitchen, Gary Unmarried, Phineas and Ferb, IFC’s Iconoclast, alongside Pearl Jammer, Eddie Vedder, and FitTV’s Insider Training.
Hamilton has been interviewed on TV by the likes of ESPN, CBS, Charlie Rose, CNN, E! 60 Minutes, Chelsea Handler, Conan O’Brien, Steven Colbert, Ellen DeGeneres, and Oprah Winfrey, in her Oprah Winfrey’s Master Class. He’s been the subject of print interviews with USA Today, Maui News, Surfer Magazine, SUP Magazine, where he was given their Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013, Juice Magazine, Men’s Health, and Men’s Journal, where he is currently a contributing editor. He has thus far penned one book, Force Of Nature: Mind, Body, Soul. And, Of Course, Surfing, in 2008. Force Of Nature is considered the go-to manual for people seeking inspiration for a healthy lifestyle.
Hamilton has appeared in movies, like, North Shore (1987), and Moving Target (1989). He’s performed stunts in, Waterworld (1995), Die Another Day (2002), The Descendants (2011), and “Point Break (2015). And documentaries? There’s been a few: Greg Stump’s Groove Requiem in the Key of Ski (1990); Radical Attitude (1992); Wake Up Call (1996); Step Into Liquid (2003); and Riding Giants (2004). In 2006, he and friend, Dave Kalama, biked and paddled the entire 450 miles plus Hawai’ian Island chain. The journey was documented in Don King’s A Beautiful Son, in support of autism sufferers. And now a new biographical surf documentary by Rory Kennedy, daughter of Robert, debuted at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January. Take Every Wave: The Life Of Laird Hamilton opened to positive reviews and its audience went beyond surf enthusiasts.


Going Against the Wave
Perhaps the reason why some may have never heard of Hamilton is because he is an iconoclast, like the show he starred in one time. He was vilified in the surf world for playing in the deep, deep end. Though he’s made huge cameos in his public life, he still avoids self-promotion. He’s serious about being the ambassador of surf and water sports. He’s not a showboater in that annoying, peacockish way. It’s just not in his mental makeup. In a video on his Laird Super Food website, Laird Hamilton: Challenger of Human Endurance, he explains his nature.
“I surfed in a couple of contests as a kid, like, ‘Hey, win a t-shirt!’ You and your buddies go out and it’s like a fun thing. And then as soon as the money came into it, and the aggression towards one another in a competitive situation … I was already too aggressive. I didn’t need a situation that created more aggression and brought out what I felt like, was the worst part of me. I was trying to learn, like, deal with suppressing that or maybe constructively venting it, not cultivating it. And,]]>

Forbes magazine has named LaPorte’s blog one of "The Top 100 Sites For Women" in 2012, calling her "a contrarian self-help guru." She’s on Oprah’s "Super Soul 100 Leaders," because,
Life’s hardest fought battle begins when one sets out on the search for one’s personal truth. The path to enlightenment is paved with potholes (sinkholes?), mole hills (mountains?), and tire-slashing foreign object debris. It’s easy to get lost. Sometimes, along the way, you’ll bump (crash?) into an unlikely girl guru who will #truthbomb you back on track.
Fellow seeker, Danielle LaPorte, is that girl. The Canadian-born, bestselling author, blogger, inspirational speaker, and entrepreneur just released yet another self-published handy hitchhiker’s guide to self-actualization, White Hot Truth (Clarity for keeping it real on your spiritual path — from one seeker to another.), which looks at the current dynamic of the self-help culture and spiritual devotion. There’s also an accompanying #truthbomb card deck available, full of daily inspirations to put the “get up” back in your “GO.”
LaPorte’s previous books, The Firestarter Sessions: A Soulful and Practical Guide To Creating Success On Your Own Terms (2012), and The Desire Map: A Guide To Creating Goals With Soul (2012), are still popular today, with Firestarter facilitator programs, and Desire Map day-planners and guidebooks. The books are also available in audio format and there are phone apps you can add for accompaniment. Previous to finding her own, unique path and branching out on her own, she co-authored Style Statement (2008) with a business partnership that dissolved.
LaPorte’s moxie was evident early in her life. While her peers went off to college, she went to work at one of the retail stores of The Body Shop. She asked for raises and promotions and she got them! She wound up as director of inventions at the corporate office headquarters.
LaPorte was also part of the Arlington Foundation, a Washington DC think-tank, She was also a communications strategist at The Next Level Communications Agency. And she was a personal assistant to a self-help author here and there, until she moved into freelance publicity. She is also part of Jonathan Fields’ Good Life Project (GLP), a cyber community of like-minded seekers on a quest to “help each other live more meaningful lives, connected and vital lives. No sleepwalking, no fluff …”
Forbes magazine named LaPorte’s blog one of “The Top 100 Sites For Women” in 2012, calling her “a contrarian self-help guru.” She’s on Oprah’s “Super Soul 100 Leaders,” because, in Oprah’s words, LaPorte’s enterprises are “uniquely connecting the world with a spiritual energy that matters.” Today, Virtuonica, the multi-media publishing company she founded in 2016. White Hot Truth was published by Virtuonica.

Treasure Map of Desires
“What if desire wasn’t an urge to be tamed, but rather a beacon of truth to be followed?” The question opens Fields’ GLP 2013 interview. La Porte dives right in and gets deep. She sees it now from the perspective of the mother of a young son in the school system. She objects to the standard operating procedure of the school system and its teachers trying to shape children. The creatives get lost in the cracks of such a system.
“What if there isn’t a click [between student and teacher]; there isn’t resonance? What if your teacher doesn’t get you? … It’s not about evoking, it’s about cramming and pushing and …” her voice collapses with a big sigh as she said “Oh, painful. Tragic.”

American fashion-philes may have come across Lein’s fashion and lifestyle column in The Huffington Post. She is also part of the Forbes Under 30 contributors.
On top of all that writing, Lein maintains her own blog, which is tied to her pet project, which came to fruition in 2015, The WishWall Foundation, where small miracles are born almost every day. The inspiration grew from her 2013 book, Tutto ció che si vuole, chronicling her 2010 travels through India. It was a private journal she showed a friend, who showed a book editor, who wanted it published. The book, now in English (Everything Is Possible: A Novel About the Power of Dreams), is available on Amazon.

When You Wish Upon A Star
Lein describes her eclectic childhood as “unconventional.” In a small, rural Northern Italian town, her homeopathic doctor dad and psychotherapist mom exposed her to a colorful world outside the small-town cultural comfort zone. Her mom established a cultural center which entertained noticeably foreign visitors, shocking the small-town villagers. She appreciates the diversity she was exposed to, though, at the time, she felt out of place, she explained in a recent

LA Splash interview.
Lein also said she was close to completing a follow-up novel. And she’s created her own clothing line, along with designer Shahida Parides. She called the limited edition dress collection “ultra-chic and wearable” and complimentary to all body types. Each sale of Lein’s clothing shares 30% with The WishWall Foundation.
Since setting up shop in Philadelphia with her husband, Lein works tirelessly to try to live the love that her life and her journeys have taught her. The WishWall Foundation was inspired by her novel about the power of wishes, and operates on the “pay it forward” concept.

At 84, Dr. Stanley Krippner, a beloved and prolific teacher, facilitator, and researcher in humanist psychology and its many facets, shows no signs of slowing down. Going into his 85th year on this planet, he’s still keeping pace. And for this, we are thankful. Even if you don’t currently know about parapsychology, altered states, dream telepathy, and the like, your gratitude will be happy delayed reaction. A small bio does him no justice. His vitae are mind-blowingly extensive. Going into his 85th year on this planet, he’s still keeping pace.
Krippner is currently the senior professor in the CSS Humanist and Clinical Department at Saybrook University, in Oakland, CA., where he teaches the much-needed future humanistic psychologists in his areas of expertise, namely, dream studies, personal mythology, and PTSD and LGBTQ issues. He launched into his studies of the mind and the empyreal after earning both his Masters and his PhD. in 1961 from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. He has since become a fellow in five American Psychological Association (APA) divisions (as in, areas of discipline), and has been president of two. Before finding his way to Saybrook, he was director of the Kent State University Child Study Center in Ohio. This led to a director position at the Maimonides Medical Center Dream Research Laboratory in Brooklyn, NY.
Though the disciplines of parapsychology and humanistic psychology struggle to hit the mainstream, Krippner and his colleagues strive to legitimize the field in the public’s eyes. They’ve won over some of the science community’s skeptics who challenged his research with their own. There was evidence to validate much of it — enough to pique the interest of the US government, who tried to use “remote viewing”, another dream phenomenon, to locate the likes of Saddam Hussein, and weapons caches, and bomb locations in other earlier wars. The CIA also took interest.
Krippner has authored, co-authored, or edited more than 42 books, including the popular Dream Telepathy: Extraordinary Dreams; How To Work With Them, The Mythic Path: Discovering the Guiding Stories Of Your Past, and Haunted By Combat: Understanding PTSD In Veterans & How To Work With Them. He’s conducted numerous documented experiments. He’s appeared in televised documentaries and youtube interviews. He still gives seminars in various US cities. And he continues to facilitate entheogenic retreats at the Wasiwaska Research Centre for the Study of Psycho-Integrator Plants, Visionary Art, and Consciousness in South Brazil. In fact, Krippner has gained a lot of respect from his peers. Half a century’s meticulous work has paid off.
Krippner was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award twice — once in 2006 from the International Association for the Study of Dreams; and a second in 2014 from the International Network on Personal Meaning. He was also given awards for Distinguished Lifetime Contributions to yes 31:37

“Psychedelics are not suppressed because they are dangerous to users; they’re suppressed because they provoke unconventional thought, which threatens any number of elites and institutions that would rather do our thinking for us.” ~ Dennis McKenna, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss.
Dennis McKenna, 67, is a noted ethnopharmacologist, focusing on pharmacognosy, especially with psilocybin and ayahuasca. After travels to the Amazon, in search of the Sixties experience with his older brother, Terence, Dennis’ curiosity was piqued in a scientific way. He wanted to know how these plants worked.
In 1979, McKenna earned his Masters in Botanical Sciences at the University of Hawaii. With his continued studies in the Botanical Sciences, he earned his Ph.D. in 1984 at the University of British Columbia. He studied the botany, chemistry, and pharmacology of ayahuasca and oo-koo-he, two orally-active tryptamine-based hallucinogens used by the indigenous peoples in Northwest Amazon.
McKenna received post-doctorate fellowships in the Lab of Clinical Pharmacology at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and in the Department of Neurology at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He recently completed a project, funded by the Stanley Medical Research Institute, to study the Amazonian ethnomedicine for the treatment of schizophrenia and cognitive deficits.
In 1990, McKenna became director of ethnopharmacology at Shaman Pharmaceuticals. In 1993, he became senior research pharmacognisist for the Aveda Corporation. In 1993, he also founded and continues to serve as VP and board member of Heffter Research Institute, where they are researching use of psilocybin with cancer patients.
In 2001, he joined the faculty of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality and Healing and has since become a popular professor. He serves on the advisory board of The American Botanical Council and on the editorial board of Phytopharmacology.
McKenna’s authored four books and countless research papers. In 1976, he wrote the still popular, cult classic Psilocybin: Magic Mushroom Grower’s Guide.He can be seen in documentaries on the esoteric. He continues to lead expeditions to the Amazon to study the culture, shamanism and ayahuasca.


Far Out, Man
For anyone who’s been to Paonia, CO, it’s no surprise that the small mountain hippie town produced two of the most learned ethnopharmacology luminaries — the dynamic duo, brothers Dennis and his senior, Terence, now deceased. What began as a popular recreational experimentation in the Sixties counterculture opened the door to new realms of legitimate soul-searching, growth and healing. Dennis wrote about his accounts with his brother in his 2012 book, The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss. They discovered there was some power in the medicine!

~Mantak Chia
Born in 1944 in Bangkok, Thailand, to Chinese parents, Taoist Master Mantak Chia, 73, began his life’s mission in 1950 at the ripe age of 6, when Buddhist monks began teaching him how to sit “and still the mind.” Before he met the monks, he was being groomed in another direction — to become a Biblical scholar and be part of his grandmother’s Southern Baptist church, the first ever in Thailand. But he was mesmerized by the intrigue of meeting Taoist Master One Cloud Hermit, “who demonstrated extraordinary powers.” One Cloud fully initiated Chia into the ancient and for century’s secretly guarded practices.
While in grammar school, Chia took up Thai boxing (Muay Thai), and then the martial art Tai Chi. Master Lu, his Tai Chi teacher, then introduced his learned pupil to the Japanese martial art, Aikido, then yoga, and then broader levels of Tai Chi.
As a proven athletic young teen student in Hong Kong, one of Chia’s classmates introduced him to Taoist Master Yi Eng (I Yun). It was then that Chia dove deeply into living the Taoist way — a philosophy that emphasizes naturalness, simplicity, and the 3 Treasures: compassion, frugality, and humility.
In his early 20s in Singapore, Chia studied with Master Meugi who taught him Kundalini, Taoist Yoga and The Buddha Palm — a technique by which an ordinary hand is transformed into a formidable force for fighting or healing. The technique involves channeling cosmic energy through the palms.
Chia studied with other Shao-Lin Masters. He studies Western anatomy and medical science in Germany for 2 years to understand the body as fully as he could. In June 1990, he was first to be named the Chi Kung Master of the Year, by the International Congress of Chinese Medicine and Qi Kong (Chi Kung). He again was awarded the title in 2012, the only to be named twice. He’s listed as 18 of the 100 most Spiritually Influential people in the world.
Chia now lives in his Universal Tao Healing (UTH) Retreat and Spa Center in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where he continues to teach and train when he isn’t traveling internationally to teach. Construction on the expansive center began in 1994 and opened to the public in 2000.
Master Teacher
Before making Thailand his home base, Chia opened a (UHT) in 1979 in New York. There he taught tens of thousands of students and certified instructors throughout the world. It was his time with Master One Cloud Hermit that shaped his living and teaching philosophy. One Cloud abandoned all the 10 religious-based Taoist branches and chose the effective parts out of many traditions within and without Tao and combined them and made them his own way. Like many other non-religious, just-practicing Taoists, they retreat to the mountains to apply their knowledge and practice their ways.

Chia identifies himself as a teacher, mainly, though he’s also a noted author (he’s penned 38 books, many of which can be found as PDFs online or purchased on his Amazon page), and a bona fide healer. He says he is a teacher “who helps his students empower themselves through cultivation of their chi” — their “life force,” “material energy,” or “energy flow,” known in the Chinese tradition.

You know that saying, “No job is finished until the paper work is done”? We can apply the same sentiment to quests for spiritual growth and self-actualization: “No inner work is finished until the shadow work is done.”
Modern-day shaman, James W. Jesso, embraces his difficult mission in life as a conscious explorer, seeking, learning, growing, and educating others on what it’s like on the other side. His method for self-understanding and individuation is a deeply personal and profound one. It’s unconventional and not quite mainstream — yet, but it is gaining validity in the scientific community. His “guru” is psilocybin mushrooms, or magic mushrooms.
Jesso spent years researching entheogenics, mainly with psilocybin. His journeys, thus far, produced three books, writing gigs, with the likes of DisInfo and PsyPressUK. Additionally, he writes his own blog, and travels extensively to share his journeys and wisdoms at entheogenics and New Age gatherings. For those more audio/visual, you can listen to his Adventures Through The Mind (ATTMind) podcasts and/or watch accompanying Youtube videocasts.
In this podcast we will discuss his popular books, 2013’s Decomposing The Shadow: Lessons From The Psilocybin Mushroom, and 2015’s The True Light Of Darkness, which both discuss spiritual growth using the psilocybin model.
Decomposing The Shadow
Famed psychologist, Carl Jung, considered shadow work key in the process of individuation. But most people in modern society live in denial of their “shadow aspect” — the unconscious aspect of the personality, which the conscious ego does not identify in itself.
“Everyone carries a shadow,” Jung wrote in his 1938 study, Psychology & Religion: West & East, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. …” (Jung also believed the shadow to be “the seat of creativity.”)
In this 2013 interview with fellow endeogenic seeker, Dr. Martin Ball, Jesso explains shadow work, and, what exactly, decomposing a shadow entails.
“The shadow is oftentimes referred to as ‘dark personality traits’ … but I believe the shadow to be the emotional root of what eventually precipitates into a dark personality trait,” Jesso explains. “And to decompose the shadow is to essentially go into that emotional root or unacknowledged element of ourselves and bring it up through a full, complete conscious catharsis for interaction with.”
Like Jung and many other awakened thinkers in this new-day spiritual revival, Jesso doesn’t believe in repressing our shadows, but rather, coming to terms with them, accepting them, and integrating them into our conscious lives in a positive way.
“When we decompose the shadow, especially, say, with psilocybin mushrooms, we bring these dark emotions up, they come to the surface of awareness, we experience them directly, let them metabolize. And then do the thing that is most natural and beautiful in life, which is to kind of decompose, disintegrate, and become almost like the base nutrients, recycled back into the soil of our being in some way,]]>

Jamie Wheal is co-founder and executive director of the Flow Genome Project (FGP), and a leading expert on the neuro-somatics of ultimate human performances. He, along with Steven Kotler, featured in HXP podcast episode 58, discussing his book The Rise of Superman.
The FGP picks up where renowned Hungarian Flow Psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, left off, after decades of studies on flow that began in the 1960s. Flow is that state of nirvana where time goes into slow motion, the nagging “self” vanishes, and action and awareness merge. At FGP, Wheal leads a team of the world’s top scientists, athletes, and artists dedicated to reverse-engineering the genome of peak performance. Clients and research partners include the military, Fortune 500 companies, business schools, Young President’s Organization (YPO), and world class athletes from the Red Bull teams, among others. The FGP has been featured in the Harvard Business Review, the New York Times, TEDtalks, Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Forbes and Time, to name a few.
Wheal’s (& Kotler’s) book Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALs, and Maverick Scientists Are Revolutionizing The Way We Live, is due to be released on February 21, 2017.

Flow Me The Way
Wheal always sought to go deeper in life, no matter what his pursuit. In a 2013 TEDtalk in Venice Beach, California, he spoke candidly about what brought him to where he is today. He said he felt that something was always missing from his own human experience and said that he “wasn’t feeling alive.” This threw him into an inner battle with his family’s demons: Depression, Addiction and Suicide. He experimented with things, drugs, that could “blow up or numb out that sense of separation,” he said.
During one of his funks, a friend came to his place and told him to get up, get some fresh air, and go windsurfing. After some coaxing, Wheal agreed, only if his friend would carry him to the car. He recalls his frustrating attempts at windsurfing and thought the day was a waste and sending him into a deeper funk. Then, a miracle occurred. A whoosh of wind woke up his sail and righted his board. As he picked up speed, the board rose onto its props. He had the most amazing fluke of a ride that put him in a place where he felt completely alive. He came to know it as the flow —  that place where time slows, the self vanishes, and action and awareness merge.
Since Wheal’s wild ride and brief encounter with blissful suspended animation, he’s sought to reverse-engineer the process to make it consciously available to those who seek it. Science and research has taught Wheal and Kotler that flow is a beneficial thing. It releases five of the most potent neuro-chemicals for motivation, learning, and well-being — norepinephrine, dopamine, endorphins, anandamide, and oxytocin.
The three big ideas of flow that are proven through research:
1). Flow silences our inner critic (selfless). Why? Because of a neuroscience phenomenon called “transient hypo frontalitly”, which, Wheal explains, translates to “for a little while”, not a lot of neocortex anxiety.
2). Flow accelerates the path of mastery (effortless). The Navy SEALs knocked out the neocortex and cut their lean time in half.
3). Flow is hackable. (timeless).

According to his company bio, Oren Klaff founded Intersection Capital (IC) in 2005 and has since grown the firm history to approximately $2B in aggregate trade volume across a diversified portfolio of transactions. He is responsible for business and product development and oversees Velocity method of corporate finance, which offers a proprietary method for packaging deals.
During the growth he was responsible for sales, marketing, branding, product and business development. In the previous 5 years in the securities markets, Klaff directly supervised placement of over $450M of investor capital. Prior to founding IC, Klaff was a venture partner at several middle market equity funds. Klaff also sits on the investment committee at Geyser Holdings, where he has been a principal since 2006.
Klaff’s popular business bible, Pitch Anything: An Innovative Method for Presenting, Persuading & Winning the Deal, released in 2011, opened the door for his A-List client personal coaching and training via Pitch Anything Edge, and Pitch Mastery.
IC’s investment banker sector experience covers technology, healthcare, and asset-backed securities.
Tested & Proven: NeuroEconomics.
Klaff’s winning appeal is not simply a good, clean, look armed to the teeth with charm. His hunt for that secret winning formula finally came across something that broke it down to a social science. He found a group of like-minded business comrades in the new science of neuroeconomics. They discovered a field that sorted out the different motivation and economic responses of the human mind. It was a real science that showed how the brain responded to pitches, and went about testing it.



With this combo of neuroscience, economics and psychology, Klaff and his peers learned the role of the brain when we evaluate decisions, categorize risks and rewards, and interact with each other. “This was my first exposure to a credible group of people studying the same thing as me — how the brain responds to financial offers,” Klaff said in his “unofficial bio” page. “This was the first time I came to believe a unified algorithm for pitching could be developed and used.”
He was fortunate, he said, to be able to work with a very wealthy principle who let him experiment and make mistakes. He’s learned the art of romancing the Croc Brain — the limbic system, the fight or flight sector.

Tom Bilyeu was once a successful chief marketing officer at a tech company with a decent income and his own office overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Physically he was doing well. Mentally he was hitting rock bottom. His heart was just not into it and he wasn’t happy and didn’t feel fulfilled. Now he is president and co-founder of the highly lucrative Quest Nutrition.
In 2010, Quest grew out of the passions of Bilyeu and tech coworkers, Ron Penna and Mike Osborn. All shared an interest in health, nutrition and fitness. They wanted to create a better nutrition bar — one that wasn’t chock-full of the sugar and other junk that dominates today’s food and drink industry. They agreed they would take risks, maintain their integrity by not compromising or selling out, and strive for quality rather than a huge bottom line.
Borrowing from Penna’s wife’s own homemade bars, they chased their passion of building that better bar. Word-of-mouth rave reviews from bodybuilders and fitness models circulated quickly. To their surprise, Quest’s business increased by 57,347% in its first 3 years and was ranked #2 for fastest growing company in 2014 by Inc. 5000. (On Inc. 5000 site, click on #2 Quest Nutrition for the story.) GNC named the Quest bars “protein bars of the year” for both 2012 and 2013.
By 2013, Quest employed more than 200 people and earned revenue over $82 million. By the end of 2015, Quest bars were sold at over 40,000 points of distribution in more than 70 countries. As of 2016, Quest employed 1,300 full-time employees and more than 1,000 part-time ambassadors.
The transformation Bilyeu, Penna and Osborn brought on with their Quest start-up experience inspired another venture — the informative and inspirational Inside Quest podcast, blog, library, and video show. Bilyeu uses the platform to share his revelations about the passionate side of the journey to success, the key theme being self-empowerment. Inside Quest interviewees are the movers and shakers who share their secrets to their passion-driven successes.
Bilyeu is all over the place on the internet. That is some serious outreach needing more takers. In addition to his Inside Quest blog, he also blogs for his Cooking With Quest site, and his Cheat Clean cyber cookbook. and various others. (More listed below). And in addition to the Inside Quest show, Bilyeu recently began Impact Theory, a new informative blog, video show and resource for all things whole health.

Raising The Bar On Bars
Personal experience drove Bilyeu to his calling. In a February 2016 Forbes article, he speaks candidly about that drive.
“I grew up in a morbidly obese family. I know that people I love will die soon if my partners and i can’t solve the problem of metabolic disease.”
Furthermore, he notes that there is an addictive side to bad food that exacerbates the problem.
“Food is so pleasurable it’s like a drug. … When there’s a grocery store around every corner, pleasure eating too much of the wrong things can create major health problems.”
So it was never about profit for Bilyeu.]]> Kimmie R. yes 36:47 Episode 85 – Caveh Zahedi – Actor/Director/Film Maker http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-85-caveh-zahedi-actordirectorfilm-maker/ Sun, 15 Jan 2017 21:12:50 +0000 http://www.thehumanxp.com/?p=3057 http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-85-caveh-zahedi-actordirectorfilm-maker/#respond http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-85-caveh-zahedi-actordirectorfilm-maker/feed/ 0 <p>Caveh Zahedi, 56, is an American film director and actor of Iranian descent.

Caveh Zahedi, 56, is an American film director and actor of Iranian descent. His obcure, whimsical films have earned him a devoted underground following. He began making films while earning his BA in philosophy at Yale University. After graduating, he traveled to Switzerland to try to meet and work with famous French-Swiss director, screenwriter and film critic, Jean-Luc Godard, whose career began in 1960. Godard refused to work with him after Zahedi called the film icon at 3 a.m. offering his filmmaking services. After a number of other failed film projects — on subjects like French poets Arthur Rimbaud and Stéphane Mallarmé, and photography pioneer Edward Muybridge — and moving between France and the US a number of times, Zahedi finally settled in Los Angeles and was accepted into UCLA’s film school, where he earned an MFA in film and TV production. Zahedi is currently the assistant professor of screen studies at the Eugene Lange College of Liberal Arts in New York City, at The New School annex. He’s also a frequent guest lecturer at the School of Visual Arts, MFA Social Documentary Film.
Art Imitates Life
Zahedi has at least 30 films and shorts to his credit, according to the IMDb. His most notable films include:
A Little Stiff (1991): A film he co-directed with cinematographer/ director Greg Watkins, in which Zahedi re-enacted his unrequited love for a UCLA art student, using the real-life participants. The film received mild critical acclaim, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize. It aired on both German TV and the Sundance Channel.
I Don’t Hate Las Vegas Anymore (1995): An attempt to prove the existence of God by way of a road trip to Las Vegas with his Iranian-born father and teenage half-brother. Zahedi surmised that if God existed, he would provide the events needed to make the film interesting. When that didn’t work, he persuaded his father and half-brother to take Ecstasy with him on film instead. It won the Critics’ Award at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and developed a small cult following. However, most critics were less than impressed.
I Was Possessed By God (1998): Dateless on Valentine’s Day, Zahedi decided to eat 5 grams of hallucinogenic mushrooms. He claims to have had a “divine possession” experience, in which a divine being possessed his body and spoke through him.
Life Imitates Art
Entering the 21st Century, Zahedi’s work continued to deliver his candid — if not sometimes gasp-inducing — snapshots in the life of a creative.
In The Bathtub Of The World (2001): Zahedi began a 1-year video diary, filming one minute each day for the entire year and then editing it down to 90 minutes. What made the cut are scenes of fights with his girlfriend, taking mushrooms on his birthday and his attempt to evict a flock of pigeons from his apartment.
In 2003, he received the Dahlonega International Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.

Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous
Sometimes you come across a bio that reads like lines out of a “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous” script, complete with a Robin Leach voice-over channeling a narration to the echo chambers of your mind. John Lee Dumas has one of those kind of bios. His is not a rags-to-riches tale, per se. He was a driven youngster, even bagging an ROTC scholarship to college, graduating as an officer and serving a 13-month stint in Iraq as a platoon leader. He went through the motions, doing what he thought he was supposed to do. But somehow he knew things weren’t cosmically right for him.
When he returned stateside, he moved around changing careers in the 13 colony states, before deciding to pack up and head out west to join the real estate rat race. The seemingly endless loop of commuting made it feel more like a crawl than a race, so he passed the time with radio. He started with NPR. Then a friend recommended podcasts — commercial-free, homegrown content on every subject under the sun freely available on the internet airwaves. Dumas was hooked! Learning while commuting made something positive out of those dreadful commutes. Yet, his commuting hours outnumbered the hours of available podcasts in his favored genre. He noticed that no one out there was doing a daily podcast to satiate podcast junkies like himself. So he went and did it himself.
When EOFire launched on September 22, 2012, Dumas was a complete podcast virgin. He found his niche in the wild and untamed podcast airwaves by interviewing entrepreneurs and up-and-comers. People craved the info he was putting out there. Now, with 1,500+ episodes behind him, his podcast boasts 40+ million listens, holds Best of iTunes 2013 title, and generates a monthly income in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. (November 2016 … a whopping $205,459 … for having fun at work! Sign me up!) Fortunately, Dumas enjoys sharing his secrets to success with anyone who can keep up with his infectious high energy.
Livin’ Large In A Tropical Paradise
So, what put the fire under Dumas’ … ahem, feet, to blast him off into financial independence and freedom? How does he conjure just a <em>teensy</em> bit of envy seeing a picture of him toasting you with an exotic drink from his sublime Puerto Rican paradise balcony? He says he came to a point where he felt empty driving his life away doing something he wasn’t all that thrilled about. “I was still struggling — financially, mentally, physically. I had no passion, no purpose and no vision for my future.”
Dumas’ military experience helped him hone his goal-setting skills and he shared them in his Freedom Journal, which he calls “an accountability partner — an important assistant keeping you on task with your goal.

His faculty “Biological Sketch” page reads like the resumé of a Nobel Prize recipient. It’s not inconceivable. He inches closer, having received the prestigious Prigogine Medal in 2012 for work on thermodynamics of dissipative systems.

Professor Gerald Pollack is Founding Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal, WATER and is recognized as an international leader in science and engineering.
The University of Washington Faculty chose Pollack, in 2008, to receive their highest annual distinction: the Faculty Lecturer Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the coveted Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems. He has received an honorary doctorate from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Foreign Member of the Srpska Academy. Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He recently received an NIH Director’s Transformative R01 Award for his work on water, and maintains an active laboratory in Seattle.
Pollack’s interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication; two subsequent books: Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and The Fourth Phase of Water, both won that Society’s “Distinguished Award.”
Pollack is recognized worldwide as a dynamic speaker and a scientist willing to challenge any long-held dogma that does not fit the factsPollack’s research is paying off with a growing interest to explore more deeply the possibilities posed in his research. Students and innovators in health and energy in the scientific communities consider Pollack their Super Hero (Aquaman?) in the nerdy science world for sticking to his research and opening up a world of magical possibilities. But what’s not to love about passionate brainiacs who want to make the world a better place?
Opening The Floodgates
For years, Pollack studied muscles and how cells worked within them. The more he watched the cells and the water within them and around them, he noted something missing from the research. He wondered why weren’t studying the water within them, which account for 99% of a molecules’ construct. In fact, how could they exclude studying something that was everywhere? According to NASA, the human body is made up of 70% water and the Earth itself is more than 70% water. Water is everywhere! So he narrowed his studies and discovered something amazing and revolutionary.
Pollack presents evidence contrary to popular belief that water has more than the three phases — solid, liquid,]]>

Andrew Marr, 34, a former US Army Green Beret Sergeant First Class serving in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2006 to 2014, found himself medically retired from service due to multiple traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) he accrued while in the line of duty. Years of booms and bangs working as an explosives/demolitions specialist took a toll on his health and his brain, affecting his mental well-being and making his transition back into civilian life difficult and almost a losing battle. After a plunge into darkness set in months after his return, Andrew, CEO, along with his brother, Adam, 32, cofounded the Warrior Angels Foundation” (WAF) to help fellow veterans receive the cutting edge treatment that helped Andrew get his life back.
The War Within
Long after our veterans return home from combat a battle rages on forever more in their minds. Living under constant “fight or flight” mode for years during their tours of duty wreak havoc on their bodies and their minds. It leads to adrenal burnout when the finite supply of cortisol is spent. Many suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) when they can’t transition back to their previous normal lives because of years of heightened alert and threats abound. If there are TBIs involved, the battle is hard-fought, if not hopeless, with traditional methods of myriad pharmacopeia that only mask symptoms, and psychotherapy that cannot even scratch the surface of their mental agony. Far too often these treatments prove worthless, if not detrimental. Shortly after Andrew’s return home in 2014 he thought the difficult adjustment would be temporary. Then he started hearing news of fellow special forces vets killing themselves to escape their suffering.
Andrew’s initial response to the suicide news was, ‘What a coward! How could somebody do that?’ It was just ignorance on my part, not fully grasping that,” Andrew said candidly in a video interview discussing TBI and the WAF. “And it wasn’t till I was at my most rock bottom, having panic attacks, anxiety attacks, being depressed… I found myself on 13 different meds. I was an alcoholic and contemplating suicide. Then I thought, ‘This is how it happens!’ …”
Shortly after, his own 6-month downward spiral began, the symptoms were physical — chronic fatigue, blurred vision, balance and hearing issues, migraines and double vision. Then there was the pulmonary embolism and other physical issues that ate away at his physical prowess. Then the plunge into mental darkness began. His wife, Becky, carrying the couple’s fifth child — due any day soon — watched her husband grow farther apart from the family with his boozing and mental deterioration. She asked that he please curb his drinking in case she went into labor and needed a ride to the hospital.
For a while, the family kept up the charade that all was well, until Andrew finally snapped and could only sob during a phone call with his brother. Adam could not stand by and watch his big brother, a family man, self-destruct before his eyes. (Though Adam served 9 years in Iraq as an Apache helicopter pilot, he was not rattled by TBI.) He passed up a promotion to Major, retired from the Army and joined with his brother. In 2015 their paths crossed with Dr. Mark L. Gordon, a neuro-endocrinologist, who was working successfully with a revolutionary treatment using state-of-the-art technology. Gordon’s treatment proved miraculous for Andrew, who began loving his life again. Together Andrew and Adam, working with Dr. Gordon, cofounded the WAF. They formed a working coalition with Gordon’s Millenium-WAF TBI Project clinics to help reach other veterans suffering through PTSD/TBI and b...]]>

How Soon Is Now?
According to Pinchbeck’s WikiPedia page, the book’s thesis is that the ecological crisis is a rite of passage or initiation for humanity collectively, forcing us to reach the next level of our consciousness as a species. The book outlines the changes to our technical infrastructure — agriculture, energy, industry — and our social, political, and economic system that Pinchbeck deems necessary to avoid the worst consequences of global warming, species extinction, and so on. We can look at these current times as the possible storm before the calm. This is encouraging news, folks!
Where The Mind Goes, The Body Follows
Pinchbeck is no stranger to the wanderlust spirit, perhaps passed on through his abstract painter father, Peter Pinchbeck, or his mother, writer Joyce Johnson, who, before he was born, dated “beat” author Jack Kerouac, as his classic On The Road was just being released in 1957. But Pinchbeck’s travels were more of an internal mind journey, studying and living the life of a shaman. Though he’s written countless articles on the subject for various noted publications, Pinchbeck’s books delve deeper into the wormhole of his entheogenic awakening. An entheogen – derived from the Greek word meaning, “becoming divine within” – is a chemical substance, typically of plant origin, that is ingested to produce a nonordinary state of consciousness for religious or spiritual purposes.

In 2002, Pinchbeck’s Breaking Open The Head: A Psychedelic Journey Into The Heart Of Contemporary Shamanism, he explored shamanism with the Bwiti of Gabon, who ate iboga for vision quests, and with the Secoya people in the Ecuadorian Amazon, who drank the psychedelic ayahuasca in their ceremonies.
In Pinchbeck’s followup book, 2012: The Return Of Quetzalcoatl, where, through his search of divine connection, he is introduced to fellow New Age thinkers: Terence McKenna, who champions that humanity is experiencing an accelerated process of global consciousness; Dean Radin, who researched parapsychology and extra sensory perception; and José Argüelles, a visionary for humanity who dedicated much of his life to promoting an alternative calendar based on a cycle of 13 months of 28 days, which he believed would bring about world peace,” according to Argüelles’ WikiPedia page. Pinchbeck’s 2012 book studied the Mayan calendar in the context of New Age beliefs, considering that it was not indicative of the end of the world, but rather the end of world as we know it with all its current limiting beliefs. It was the end of stale thinking and the beginning of a global awakening — an Age of Aquarius, of sorts.
Pinchbeck appears in notable documentaries such as the intriguing 2012: Time For Change (2010), featuring other enlightened seekers like Sting,]]>

Since 1983 she has worked as a transpersonal therapist with people having non-ordinary experiences associated with spiritual awakening, especially with kundalini arising, which was the topic of her doctoral dissertation at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology.

Kundalini
Kundalini (Sanskrit kuṇḍalinī, कुण्डलिनी, About this sound pronunciation (help·info), “coiled one”), in the Dharma religions, is a primal energy, or shakti, located at the base of the spine. Different spiritual traditions teach methods of “awakening” kundalini for the purpose of reaching spiritual enlightenment. Kundalini is described as lying “coiled” at the base of the spine, represented as either a goddess or sleeping serpent waiting to be awakened. In modern commentaries, Kundalini has been called an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force or “mother energy or intelligence of complete maturation”.
Kundalini awakening is said to result in deep meditation, enlightenment and bliss. This awakening involves the Kundalini physically moving up the central channel to reach within the Sahasrara Chakra at the top of the head. Many systems of yoga focus on the awakening of Kundalini through meditation, pranayama breathing, the practice of asana and chanting of mantras. In physical terms, one commonly reports the Kundalini experience to be a feeling of electric current running along the spine.
The Kundalini Guide
The eruption of kundalini energy from its secret nest at the base of the spine has been revered by some as bringing ecstasy and enlightenment, and disparaged by others as simply disabling, terrifying and dangerous. Mystics may call it a method of transformation. Skeptics consider it imaginary. All who have experienced it know it as a mystery and a profound life-altering experience. This book, based on 25 years of interviews with over 2000 people who have had this awakening, describes seven categories of phenomena that may occur, tells the eastern perspective of kundalini science, offers guidance on coping with the erratic energies and shifts of consciousness that happen, and reveals the inward path to self-realization that follows the deconstruction initiated by a kundalini arising. If you think you might be in this awakening process, you engage in spiritual or energy practices, or you have activated energies following a near-death experience or trauma, this book is your companion and guide.

Jeffrey Bronfman served as president of the União do Vegetal Church (UDV) in the United States from 1993 to 2005.  In 2000 Jeffrey spearheaded a historic legal action against The Government of  United States for the legal right to utilize the church’s sacramental tea known as  hoasca. A tea that is more commonly known as “ayahuasca”.
 
In the early nineties, Jeffrey Bronfman, an ecological activist, began making trips to the rain forest. There he became fascinated by U.D.V., as the religion is known, and first drank hoasca tea.  Bronfman learned Portuguese and trained to become a mestre, which is the title given to the clergy in the faith.
 
Jeffrey Bronfman is also a member of ICEERS Ayahuasca Defense Fund’s steering committee, a body made up of expert lawyers, strategists and others, that helps people wanting to use ‘teacher plants’ as part of their personal or religious growth, but who find themselves facing legal challenges.
 
The UDV:
The União do Vegetal (UDV) is a Christian Spiritist religion that originated in Brazil and is now practiced by over 18,000 people in nine countries. The UDV has received numerous civic awards for its community and environmental service and is recognized as a church under the laws of the United States.
União do Vegetal literally means “the union of the plants.” Adherents drink a tea within their religious services that is made from two plants indigenous to the Brazilian Amazon. The tea, known as Hoasca, is revered as sacred by UDV members. It is a sacrament serving to heighten spiritual understanding and perception and bring the practitioners closer to God.
 
The Supreme Court Case
In 1999, a shipment of the religion’s sacrament, Hoasca tea, was confiscated by federal agents in a raid on Bronfman’s office. No arrests were made. Subsequently, the UDV, Bronfman and several other church member plaintiffs, sued the federal government on the basis that this violated their right to religious freedom, citing a variety of laws and treaties that should have protected their right to use it, including the First Amendment and The Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The court-case and legal wrangling lasted until 2010, with Bronfman serving as the lead plaintiff in the action. The UDV ultimately won, and became the first, entity granted the authority to import a Schedule I controlled substance (the Hoasca tea) for their strictly religious, sacramental use.

Brainwave entrainment is a colloquialism for ‘neural entrainment’, which denotes how the aggregate oscillation frequency, resulting from synchronous electrical activity among ensembles of cortical neurons, can adjust to synchronize with the periodic vibration of an external stimulus, such as a sustained acoustic frequency perceived as pitch, a regularly repeating pattern of intermittent sounds perceived as rhythm, or a regularly intermittent flashing light.

He is internationally renowned for his countless ice endeavors that range from being up to his neck in a cylinder filled with ice cubes for over 90 minutes, swimming long distances under polar ice, running a marathon barefoot to climbing the Everest in nothing more than a pair of shorts.
All of these gained him worldwide fame and his nickname: The Iceman. Wim has shown what the human body is capable of once you find the flow within your physical and mental state. Right now he especially sees his new challenge in passing on his method to others to give everyone the opportunity to reach out and do more than what they thought they were capable of. Through the right training and exercises, you can strengthen your inner nature and prevent disease.
 

A new breathing method and the confrontation with the cold
As a first step, you can start by training the way you breathe. Wim developed his method by the teachings of nature. As a result, Wim ran half a marathon barefooted above the polar circle, climbed the highest mountain on earth in shorts, and many other achievements! Training the way you breathe and exposing yourself gradually and controlled to the cold can help you control and positively influence your immune system.
The benefits of Wim’s method
Besides helping you learn how to control your autonomic nervous system, Wim’s method has the following benefits:

* Positive influence on the immune system
* Positive influence on your mind and body
* Improvement of blood circulation
* Improvement of concentration and focus
* Greater self-confidence and conscious development

Hof holds 20 world records, including a world record for longest ice bath.[2] Wim describes his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures as being able to “turn his own thermostat up” through breathing exercises.[citation needed]
2007: He climbed to 6.7 kilometres (22,000 ft) altitude at Mount Everest wearing nothing but shorts and shoes, but failed to reach the summit due to a recurring foot injury.[3][4]
2008: He broke his previous world record by staying immersed in ice for 1 hour, 13 minutes and 48 seconds at Guinness World Records 2008.[citation needed] The night before, he performed the feat on the Today Show.[citation needed]
2009: In February Hof reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in his shorts within two days.[5] Hof completed a full marathon (42.195 kilometres (26.219 mi)), above the arctic circle in Finland, in temperatures close to −20 °C (−4 °F).

Book In a Box Method: 
“Everything you’ve ever been told about how to write a book is wrong.
Authors assume that writing a book needs to be a struggle. They block off hours of precious time, throw away draft after draft, and never get any closer to a finished product.
What if there was a way to get your idea into a published book that was better and faster?
Now, finally, there is.
The Book in a Box Method cuts through all the nonsense to show you the exact steps to follow to ensure that you’ll be able to write and publish the best possible book, in less time than you thought possible.”

 

 
This is a great conversation with practical, usable advice.

ELIZABETH LESSER is a bestselling author and the cofounder of Omega Institute, the renowned conference and retreat center located in Rhinebeck, New York. Elizabeth’s first book, The Seeker’s Guide, chronicles her years at Omega and distills lessons learned into a potent guide for growth and healing. Her New York Times bestselling book, Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow (Random House), has sold more than 300,000 copies and has been translated into 20 languages.

Elizabeth cofounded Omega Institute in 1977—a time when a variety of fresh ideas were sprouting in American culture. Since then, the institute has been at the forefront of holistic education, offering workshops and trainings in: integrative medicine, prevention, nutrition, and the mind/body connection; meditation and yoga; cross-cultural arts and creativity; ecumenical spirituality; and social change movements like women’s empowerment and environmental sustainability. Elizabeth is also the cofounder of Omega’s Women’s Leadership Center, which grew out of the popular Women & Power conference series featuring women leaders, activists, authors and artists from around the world. Each year more than 30,000 people participate in Omega’s programs on its campus in Rhinebeck, New York and at urban and travel sites, and more than a million people visit its website for online learning.
A student of the Sufi master, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan for many years, Elizabeth has also studied with spiritual teachers, healers, psychologists, and philosophers from other traditions. In 2008 she helped Oprah Winfrey produce a ten-week online seminar based on Eckhart Tolle’s book, A New Earth. The webinar was viewed by more than 8 million people worldwide. She was a frequent host on Oprah’s Soul Series, a weekly radio show on Sirius/XM, and a guest on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. In 2011, she gave a popular TED talk called “Take The Other to Lunch,” a call for civility and understanding as we negotiate our differences as human beings.
Elizabeth attended Barnard College, where she studied literature, and San Francisco State University, where she received a teaching degree. In 2011 she received an honorary doctorate from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, in Palo Alto, California. Early in her career she was a midwife and birth educator. Today, besides writing and her work at Omega Institute, she lends her time to social and environmental causes, and is an avid walker, cook, gardener, friend, mother, grandmother, and homebody. She and her husband live in New York’s Hudson River Valley.

He lives in New York City.

Oliver joined The Guardian in 2000, working primarily on magazine features and as a columnist. His most widely read journalism is his weekly column on psychology, productivity and the science of happiness, entitled This Column Will Change Your Life. (A collection of these columns was published in the UK in 2011, entitled Help!: How To Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done.) His other reporting has taken him to the extreme north of Canada (to investigate the battle for natural resources under the Arctic Sea); to the slums outside Nairobi (to report on the real-world effects of celebrity anti-poverty campaigns); and to rural Sweden (to report on the rise and rise of the IKEA empire). He has interviewed a wide range of high-profile figures, including Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, David Cameron, Dolly Parton, 50 Cent, and Larry David.

Oliver has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Republic, New Philosopher, Salon, Slate, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, and Esquire. He writes a monthly column in Psychologies magazine, published in the UK.
Oliver holds an MA in Social and Political Sciences from Cambridge University. He grew up in York, in the north of England, where it rains a lot.
The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking , his latest book, is an exploration of the upsides of uncertainty, pessimism, failure and insecurity – part philosophical investigation, part first-person travelogue. (The research included a grueling silent meditation retreat, and a trip to one of Mexico City’s most dangerous neighborhoods.) The Antidote introduces a disparate group of people – psychologists, terrorism experts, spiritual teachers, and business consultants – who share a single, surprising way of thinking about life. They argue that ‘positive thinking’, relentless optimism, and a fixation on ambitious goal-setting often aren’t the solution, but part of the problem – and that there is an alternative, ‘negative path’ to happiness and success that involves embracing the very things we spend our lives trying to avoid. The Antidote was an Amazon Editors’ Pick for Best Books of November 2012, and extracts or related op-eds have featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Salon and Slate. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews called it “a fascinating, wide-ranging exploration of negativity, positivity, failure, success and what it means to be happy,” with “the potential to effect genuine, lasting changes.”The Los Angeles Times described it as “deeply insightful and entertaining.”
The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking:
Success through failure, calm through embracing anxiety―a totally original approach to self-help

About Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the inner-self:
Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the account of an extraordinarily talented lucid dreamer who goes beyond the boundaries of both psychology and religion. In the process, he stumbles upon the Inner Self. While lucid (consciously aware) in the dream state and able to act and interact with dream figures, objects, and settings, dream expert Robert Waggoner experienced something transformative and unexpected. He was able to interact consciously with the dream observer — the apparent Inner Self — within the dream. At first this seemed shocking, even impossible, since psychology normally alludes to such theoretical inner aspects as the Subliminal Self, the Center, the Internal Self-Helper in vague and theoretical ways.
Waggoner came to realize, however, that aware interaction with the Inner Self was not only possible, but actual and highly inspiring. He concluded that while aware in the dream state, one has both a psychological tool and a platform from which to understand dreaming and the larger picture of man’s psyche as well. Waggoner proposes 5 stages of lucid dreaming and guides readers through them, offering advice for those who have never experienced the lucid dream state and suggestions for how experienced lucid dreamers can advance to a new level. Lucid Dreaming offers exciting insights and vivid illustrations that will intrigue not only avid dreamworkers but anyone who is interested in consciousness, identity, and the definition of reality.


This conversation will inform, entertain and enthrall you. 

Editorial Reviews on “Lucid Dreaming”:
In this remarkable book, Robert Waggoner has brought lucid dreaming to a level that is simultaneously higher and deeper than any previous explorer has taken the topic. Both autobiographical and historical, theoretical and practical, psychodynamic and transpersonal, as well as adventurous and cautionary, Lucid Dreaming offers its readers instructions and insights that they will find nowhere else in the literature. They will learn how they can become awake and aware while asleep, and how this talent can change their lives. —Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center, San Francisco, Coauthor of Extraordinary Dreams and How To Work With Them

Dr. Cerf is a also a member of the institute on complex systems. Dr. Cerf holds a Ph.D in neuroscience from Caltech, as well as an MA in Philosophy and a B.Sc in Physics from Tel-Aviv University.
 

Cerf’s research uses methods from neuroscience to understand the underlying mechanisms of our psychology. His works address questions such as: “How are conscious percepts formed in our brain?”, “How can we control our emotions?” and “Which brain mechanisms determine if we find content interesting and engaging?”. Recently, his focus has been on the neural mechanisms that underlie decision-making, thereby offering a new perspective on predicting future choices and investigating how much free will we have in our decisions.

Dr. Cerf holds multiple patents and his works have been published in wide-circulation academic journals such asNature, as well as popular science journals such as Scientific American Mind, Wired, New Scientist and more. Additionally, his work has been portrayed in numerous media and cultural outlets such as CNN, BBC, Bloomberg, NPR, Time, MSNBC, and dozens of others. He has been featured in venues such as the Venice Art Biennial and China’s Art, Science and Technolgoy association, and has contributed to magazines such as Forbes, The Atlantic, Inc., and others.
He has made much of his research accessible to the general public via his public talks at TED, PopTech, Google Zeitgeist, DLD and other venues, gathering millions of views and a large following.
He was the beneficiary of several awards and grants for his work, including the Instructional improvement grant, and the prestigious president scholarship for excellent Ph.D. He was recently named one of the “40 leading professors below 40”.
Prior to his academic career, Dr. Cerf spent nearly a decade in industry, holding positions in computers security (as a hacker), pharmaceutical, telecom, Fashion, software development, and innovations development.
Additionally, Dr. Cerf is the Alfred P. Sloan professor at theAmerican Film Institute (AFI), where he teaches an annual screenwriting class on science in films, and is a consultant to various Hollywood films and TV shows.
He is left handed.

Dr. Berger has spent over 15 years studying how social influence works and how it drives products and ideas to catch on. He’s published dozens of articles in top-tier academic journals, consulted for a variety of Fortune 500 companies, and popular outlets like the New York Times andHarvard Business Review often cover his work. What makes you choose the choices you think you're choosing? What is the determining factor in your decision making? These are just a couple of the questions we answer in this fascinating episode. </p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-67-jonah/">Episode 67 – Jonah Berger M.D. – Invisible Influence</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.thehumanxp.com">The Human Experience Podcast</a>.</p> Jonah Berger M.D. is a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and author of the recent New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellerContagious: Why Things Catch On. Dr. Jonah Berger M.D. is a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and author of the recent New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellerContagious: Why Things Catch On.  Dr. Berger has spent over 15 years studying how social influence works and how it drives products and ideas to catch on.  He’s published dozens of articles in top-tier academic journals, consulted for a variety of Fortune 500 companies, and popular outlets like the New York Times andHarvard Business Review often cover his work.

The New York Times bestselling author of Contagious explores the subtle, secret influences that affect the decisions we make—from what we buy, to the careers we choose, to what we eat—in this fascinating and groundbreaking work.
If you’re like most people, you think that your choices and behaviors are driven by your individual, personal tastes, and opinions. You wear a certain jacket because you liked the way it looked. You picked a particular career because you found it interesting. The notion that our choices are driven by our own personal thoughts and opinions is patently obvious. Right? Wrong.
Without our realizing it, other people’s behavior has a huge influence on everything we do at every moment of our lives, from the mundane to the momentous occasion. Even strangers have a startling impact on our judgments and decisions: our attitudes toward a welfare policy shift if we’re told it is supported by Democrats versus Republicans (even though the policy is the same in both cases).
But social influence doesn’t just lead us to do the same things as others. In some cases we conform, or imitate others around us. But in other cases we diverge, or avoid particular choices or behaviors because other people are doing them. We stop listening to a band because they go mainstream. We skip buying the minivan because we don’t want to look like a soccer mom.
In his surprising and compelling Invisible Influence, Jonah Berger integrates research and thinking from business, psychology, and social science to focus on the subtle, invisible influences behind our choices as individuals. By understanding how social influence works, we can decide when to resist and when to embrace it—and how we can use this knowledge to make better-informed decisions and exercise more control over our own behavior.
 

Editorial Reviews on Invisible Influence:

“With great insight, Jonah Berger removes the cloak of invisibility from powerful sources of influence and resolves fascinating mysteries of human behavior.”

—Robert Cialdini, author of Influence“If you want to know what really influences your behavior, read Jonah Berger’s latest eye-opening book, packed with thought-provoking research, memorable stories, and powerful insights. A terrific read!”—William Ury, author of Getting to Yes with Yourself“As he did with Contagious, Jonah Berger takes us deep beneath the surface of things,]]>

D. in Psychology from University of Stockholm, Sweden, followed by post-doctoral fellowship at Carnegie-Mellon University. In 1980 he moved to University of Colorado at Boulder, where he remained until 1992 with the exception of a two-year leave during 1987-89 at the Max-Planck Institute for Human Development and Education in Berlin. His dissertation examined how verbal reports on cognitive processes provided insight into the structure of problem solving on the 8-puzzle.

Ericsson’s research with Herbert A. Simon on verbal reports of thinking is summarized in a book Protocol Analysis: Verbal Reports as Data, which was revised in 1993. With Bill Chase, he developed the Theory of Skilled Memory based on detailed analyses of acquired exceptional memory performance (Chase, W. G., & Ericsson, K. A. (1982). Skill and working memory. In G. H. Bower (Ed.), The psychology of learning and motivation, (Vol. 16). New York: Academic Press). One of his most striking experimental results was training a student to have a digit span of more than 100 digits. With Walter Kintsch, he extended this theory into long-term memory to account for the superior working memory of expert performers and memory experts (Ericsson & Kintsch 1995)
Currently, Ericsson studies expert performance in domains such as medicine, music, chess, and sports, focusing exclusively on extended deliberate practice (e.g., high concentration practice beyond one’s comfort zone) as a means of how expert performers acquire their superior performance. Critically, Ericsson’s program of research serves as a direct complement to other research that addresses cognitive ability, personality, interests, and other factors that help researchers understand and predict deliberate practice and expert performance. In the domain of deliberate practice, Ericsson published an edited book with Jacqui Smith Toward a General Theory of Expertise in 1991 and edited a book The Road to Excellence: The Acquisition of Expert Performance in the Arts and Sciences, Sports and Games that appeared in 1996, as well as a collection edited with Janet Starkes Expert Performance in Sports: Recent Advances in Research on Sport Expertise in 2003.

The four main areas of the research Anders is conducting are:
1. The Acquisition of Expert Performance and Deliberate Practice 2. Professional Development 3. Superior Memory of Experts and Long-Term Working Memory (LTWM) 4. Protocol analysis and Verbal Reports on Thinking

Rick Strassman was born in Los Angeles, California in 1952. He attended public schools in southern California’s San Fernando Valley, and graduated from Ulysses S. Grant High School in Van Nuys in 1969. As an undergraduate, he majored in zoology at Pomona College in Claremont California for two years before transferring to Stanford University, where he graduated with departmental honors in biological sciences in 1973. During summers in college he worked for RedKen Laboratories, developing cosmetics and a line of hair dyes, and also performed laboratory research at Stanford, on the development of the chicken embryo’s nervous system. He attended the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in the Bronx, New York, where he obtained his medical degree with honors in 1977.
Dr. Strassman took his internship and general psychiatry residency at the University of California, Davis, Medical Center in Sacramento, and received the Sandoz Award for outstanding graduating resident in 1981. After graduating, he worked for a year in Fairbanks, Alaska in community mental health and private psychiatric practice. From 1982-1983, he obtained fellowship training in clinical psychopharmacology research at the University of California, San Diego’s Veteran’s Administration Medical Center. He then served on the clinical faculty in the department of psychiatry at UC Davis Medical Center, before taking a full-time academic position in the department of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque in 1984.
At UNM, Dr. Strassman performed clinical research investigating the function of the pineal hormone melatonin in which his research group documented the first known role of melatonin in humans. He also began the first new US government approved and funded clinical research with psychedelic drugs in over twenty years. Before leaving the University in 1995,]]>

Dave Asprey is the founder of Bulletproof and author of New York Times bestseller The Bulletproof Diet, he is a Silicon Valley investor and technology entrepreneur who spent two decades and over $300,000 to hack his own biology. Dave provides information, techniques and keys to taking control of and improving your biochemistry, your body and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control your decisions. Dave has unequivocally popularized the term “bio-hacking” and is in one of the leading world’s top-most recognized people working in this field today.
In a remarkable change, Dave lost 100 pounds without counting calories or excessive exercise, he used techniques to upgrade his brain to an IQ over 150, and lowered his biological age while learning to sleep more efficiently and in less time. Learning to do these seemingly impossible things transformed him into a better entrepreneur, a better husband, and a better father.

About Bulletproof:
From private brain EEG facilities hidden in a Canadian forest to remote monasteries in Tibet, from Silicon Valley to the Andes, Dave Asprey used hacking techniques and tried everything on himself, obsessively focused on discovering the answers to this one persistent question:
What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything?
What emerged is the idea of becoming Bulletproof: the state of high performance where you take control of and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or allowing stress to control your decisions. It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind this way, if you were lucky enough to even know it was possible. Technology has changed the rules.
Dave founded Bulletproof to make these breakthroughs – and the body and brain you deserve — easily available to you in your everyday life.

Gabor Maté M.D. is a world renowned speaker and bestselling author. He is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood development. Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them. For twelve years Dr. Maté worked in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Vancouver’s Supervised Injection Site. With over 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience and extensive knowledge of the latest findings of leading-edge research, Dr. Maté is regarded as a leader in new ways of looking at how we treat illness and disease. He speaks regularly with health professionals, educators, and lay audiences throughout North America and the world.
 




As an author, Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books including the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction; When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress; and Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder, and co-authored Hold on to Your Kids. His works have been published internationally in twenty languages.
Dr. Maté is the co-founder of Compassion for Addiction, a new non-profit that focuses on addiction. He is also an advisor of Drugs over Dinner.
Dr. Maté has received the Hubert Evans Prize for Literary Non-Fiction; an Honorary Degree (Law) from the University of Northern British Columbia; an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University; the 2012 Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award from Mothers Against Teen Violence; and the 2012 AccolAIDS award for Health Promotion and Harm Reduction, Positive Living Society of B.C.. He is an adjunct professor in the Faculty of Criminology, Simon Fraser University.



A recurring theme in Maté’s books is the impact of a person’s childhood on their mental and physical health through neurological and psychological mechanisms, which he connects with the need for social change.

The impact of childhood adversity is noted in When the Body Says No: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection. He notes that early experiences have a key role in shaping a person’s perceptions of the world and others, and in stress physiology, factors that affect the person’s health later on. He says that emotional patterns ingrained in childhood live in the memory of cells and the brain and appear in interpersonal interactions. He describes the impact of ‘adverse childhood experiences’ or ACEs (e.g. a child being abused, violence in the family, a jailed parent, extreme stress of poverty, a rancorous divorce, an addict parent, etc.) on how people live their lives and their risk of addiction and mental and physical illnesses, as seen in a number of U.S.-based Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) studies. Having a number of ACEs exponentially increases a person’s chances of becoming an addict later on e.g. a male child with six ACEs has a 4,600% or 46-fold increase in risk. ACEs also exponentially increase the risk of diseases e.g. cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. and also suicide and early death.

He says a system that marginalizes, ostracizes and institutionalizes people in facilities with no care and easy access to drugs, only worsens the problem. He also argues the environmental causes of addiction point to the need to improve child welfar...]]>

Maia Szalavitz has also worked in television– first as Associate Producer and then Segment Producer for PBS’s “Charlie Rose”, then on several documentaries including a Barbara Walters’ AIDS special for ABC and as Series Researcher and Associate Producer for the PBS documentary series, “Moyers on Addiction: Close to Home”.
She was the 2004 recipient of the American Psychological Association’s Addiction Division Award for “Outstanding Contributions to Advancing the Understanding of Addictions” and the 2005 recipient of the Drug Policy Alliance’s Edward M. Brecher Award for Achievement in Journalism.
She studied as an undergraduate at Columbia University and received her B.A., cum laude, in psychology from Brooklyn College.
One of her best selling books, co-written with leading child trauma expert Bruce D. Perry, MD, PhD, is The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog and Other Stories from a Child Psychiatrist’s Notebook: What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing (Basic, 2007). The book explores how trauma affects the developing brain and why love is the most important ingredient in recovery.

She is also the author of Help at Any Cost: How the Troubled-Teen Industry Cons Parents and Hurts Kids (Riverhead, 2006). It serves as the first book-length expose of widespread abuse in largely unregulated teen “tough love” programs and boot camps. Szalavitz’s work has helped spur increased activism and legislative attention to the plight of thousands of teens held in these programs.
She is co-author, with Dr. Joseph Volpicelli, M.D., Ph.D. of the University of Pennsylvania, of Recovery Options: The Complete Guide: How You and Your Loved Ones Can Understand and Treat Alcohol and Other Drug Problems (John S. Wiley, 2000). This is the first evidence-based consumer guide to addiction treatment; most other books on this subject press a particular approach to addiction and recovery (usually 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous) rather than looking at the data. It also includes both positive and negative perspectives from addicts on treatment.

 


Editorial Reviews on “Unbroken Brain”:
“Maia Szalavitz is one of the bravest, smartest writers about addiction anywhere. Everything she writes should be read carefully – I guarantee you’ll have a lot to think about, and you’ll know far more than at the start.”

Vishen Lakhiani is one of the most influential personalities in personal growth today. A computer engineer and entrepreneur in education technology, he is the founder and CEO of Mindvalley, a 200-person strong company that specializes in learning experience design, creating digital platforms and apps that power online academies in personal growth, mindfulness, wellbeing, productivity and more. He also a member of the Transformational Leadership Council and sits on the Innovation Board for XPRIZE Foundation. An internationally recognized speaker on personal growth and transformation, Vishen’s mission is to revolutionize the global education system by bringing new models of enhancing human potential to people everywhere and building a school for Humanity 2.0.  Vishen’s new NY Times bestselling book, The Code of the Extraordinary Mind: 10 Unconventional Laws to Redefine Your Life & Succeed on Your Own Terms, is one of the best books we’ve read all year.
As a speaker Vishen is known for talks on entrepreneurial mindset and company culture. Lakhiani is also the founder of A-Fest, a biohacking and personal development event for entrepreneurs and authors; Mindvalley Academy, an “online university” for personal development; and Omvana, a health and fitness app for mindfulness.

Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Vishen moved to Michigan, USA in 1995 to study at the University of Michigan, where he majored in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. There he discovered AIESEC, a non-profit student run organization dedicated to nurturing young leaders into becoming global leaders who want to make a difference in society, and eventually became the Vice President for the USA team, in charge of nominating and sending AIESEC students abroad for internship programs.
In 2001 he moved to New York to work for a technology company in the legal industry. To deal with the stress of the job, he turned to meditation, and studied The Silva Method, a popular mindfulness program developed by Jose Silva. Inspired, he became a qualified instructor and began teaching meditation classes for the program.

This conversation will blow you mind.  (and if it doesn’t i’m worried about you)

In flow, concentrationbecomes so laser-focused that everything else falls away. Action and awareness merge. Our sense of self and our sense of self consciousness completely disappear.]]>

Like Stephen Pressfield’s classic The War of Art, How to Be Here will inspire readers to seek the lives they were created to lead.

Alex Grey (born November 29, 1953) is an American visionary artist, author, teacher, and Vajrayana practitioner. His body of work spans a variety of forms includingperformance art, process art, installation art, sculpture, visionary art, and painting. Grey is a member of the Integral Institute. He is also on the board of advisors for the Center for Cognitive Liberty and Ethics, and is the Chair of Wisdom University’s Sacred Art Department. He and his wife Allyson Grey are the co-founders of The Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM), a non-profit church supporting Visionary Culture in Wappingers Falls, New York.

 
The mystic paintings of Alex Grey articulate realms of psychedelic visionary consciousness, revealing interwoven energies of body and soul, love and spirit, illuminating the anatomical core of each being. Alex’s visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, have reached millions through his five books, the exhibition and extensive reproduction of his artwork, speaking appearances including a popular TED talk, stage sets for major rock bands, video animation, and Grammy award winning album art. 
Allyson Grey, MFA, is a painter, social sculptor, and Alex’s creative collaborator, life partner and studio mate since art school in 1975. Allyson’s paintings essentialize a world view of chaos, order and secret writing: the material world, the interconnected realm of energy and light and the sacred symbols of creativity. Through her blog on art and life, “Ask Allyson, she serves as a muse to artists worldwide. 
Together the Grey’s co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, (CoSM; cosm.org), a spiritual retreat center for artists outside of New York City.

Editorial Reviews

“I highly recommend this book to any spiritually minded person or couple looking to awaken their creative potential, deepen their life partnership, heal the emotional scars of past relationships, or mature their emotional-sexual being beyond the impulses of adolescence. This book would be a valuable asset for any couples therapist or marriage counselor who wants to offer a yogic spiritual component in their practice.” (Merikah Robertson, Common Ground, September 2014)
“Advanced Spiritual Intimacy is a cultural critique, tantric sex manual, and an astute primer in verbal and nonverbal communication. While most psychologists dismiss romance as infatuation, Sovatsky’s brilliance is to take it seriously as the ground of a highly disciplined but unique Kundalini-inspired approach to erotic intimacy.” (Seth Farber, Ph.D., author of The Spiritual Gift of Madness)
“Stuart Sovatsky’s well-researched and experimentally validated teachings, shared in Advanced Spiritual Intimacy, will surely be a great resource for empowering married couples around the world to find true spiritual happiness, as well as helping contemporary yogis and yoginis actually achieve the exalted goals of yogic adepts of ancient times.” (Robert Thurman, Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies, Columbia University,author of Inner Revo)
“Stuart Sovatsky’s Advanced Spiritual Intimacy is a tour de force. He takes us beyond the texts to demonstrate how the ancient path of spiritual growth may extend across a whole lifetime. This book expands our Western hermeneutic of tantra toward engendering a paradigm shift in the methodology for all who have been teaching its ways for years or decades. And as years and lifecycles unfold for persons ...]]>

He balances these tendencies with an appreciation for the artistic and creative by traveling and connecting with others. Called by some a “productivity machine,” Zane refuses to accept his destiny a code-writing robot. He balances these tendencies with an appreciation for the artistic and creative by traveling and connecting with others.
This led him to study foreign languages and human learning. In his quest to find a heart, he dedicates his time to helping others become more effective with his blog “Skill Cookbook.”
Formally trained in video game design and neuroscience, Zane enjoys building games for social good. He has worked on a variety of such projects, including games to battle depression and teach new skills.
 
Zane Claes is a programmer and author. In this episode we discuss his book, The Joy of Craft: A Paradoxical Approach for Learning to Do Things Well.
 
“Money equals happiness. Success means satisfaction. Or so the world tells us. Creativity, achievement, and rewards will leave us empty if we don’t find joy in the pursuit of these things. And many of us don’t, despite our hopeful expectations. 
Is joy some mystical state that real-world people can’t find in today’s workplace? Is it a personal attribute that some of us are just born with and others aren’t? Or is it something we can all pursue, if we know what we’re looking for and how to get there?”

 
From Zane’s Blog:
There is an essential skill which many of us have lost.
This loss is a symptom of how easy it is to publish. Or tweet. Blog. Snap. Broadcast. Record.
Our filters have dropped. We say what is on our minds and hope for a “like.” Really, our ancestors were no different. They wanted the same social approval. But the medium they had to work with was different.
Writing a letter requires an entirely different method of communication. The author must keep in mind the long round-trip-time of the letter. This delay shifted necessitated a different set of goals for the message. Limited space plus long delays meant that every word had to be well-chosen.
As one of my favorite (perhaps apocryphal) quotations has it:
I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have enough time.
These constraints forced our ancestors to learn the skill of compilation. Today, to “compile” is a word used almost exclusively by computer programmers describing the jobs of computers. But it was once something we did by hand.
Two years ago, I decided to undertake writing a book. I knew I had a message to share, and that I wanted to make a strong case supported by research. But I, like many, had forgotten (or never learned) how to compile my ideas. It took me lots of experimentation and failure to find a process that worked. I learned to refine and cut.

Gerald Clark is a 1994 graduate of the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Gerald holds an MSEE in Electronic Circuits and Systems, and a BS in Computer Engineering both from UCSD. Gerald’s books include The Anunnaki of Nibiru and The 7th Planet Mercury Rising.

Gerald is the author of several papers in the communications and electronics field and is well known for his work in the San Diego high technology industry, awarded several patents in the Free Space Optical Laser Communications field while serving as Vice President of Engineering, LightPointe Communications, Inc. Gerald’s career involved companies like Loral Telemetry and Instrumentation where he lead the final phase of the Globalstar Telemetry and Command modem designed for Qualcomm- used to command, monitor, and control 54 LEO Globalstar Constellation Satellites. While serving as VP Engineering at Tiernan Communications, Gerald and his small team of hardware and software engineers were credited with “Digitizing American Television”, having demonstrated the first live HDTV ABC Monday Night Football game on-air transmission from New York to San Diego using Tiernan Communications, Inc. HDTV 1080i/720p MPEG-2 Encoders.
During the years 1996-2002, working as a telecommunications executive, Gerald’s business travels took him to various parts of the world exposing him to a plethora of cultures which acted as a catalyst for his research into mankind’s earliest technologies and accomplishments, including the cultures of Mesopotamia and the surrounding areas of Turkey, Egypt, Persia, and Iraq, eventually leading to the cuneiform-inscribed tablets left by the Sumerians.
Knowledge of the Anunnaki here on Earth, both in the ancient past their presence here and now, is being fully-disclosed around the world. My hope is that this book will help the billions of primitive workers, left to fend for themselves on a hostile planet, to find hope that following the great destruction underway, wrought by the warring gods of Light and Dark, a promised peace in the new age of Aquarius is dawning, actually already upon us.

“This is the book you and I have been waiting for since authoring The Anunnaki of Nibiru released August 4th, 2013. The issues and questions that this research raised with the readers were carefully studied to locate the link between humanity’s South African genesis account and today. How does one proceed after discovering that modern man was fashioned by the Anunnaki to supplant the labor force they brought to Earth from Nibiru? This knowledge changes all that we have been coerced into believing as the truth.
A theme began to emerge given the lessons accessed from sacred writings. The profound nature of the material provided in this book took time to study, understand, process the lessons and assimilate them into a coherent message.

Questions like “If the Anunnaki created mankind, then who created them?” The answer takes one back to the SOURCE of our reality. Are we evolving physically and consciously towards an archetype used in our biological design? Where are we headed as a species and to what extent are our genetic creators shaping the outcome? Who are the Dark Lords behind the NWO and will Light prevail?

KINGSLEY L. DENNIS, Ph.D., is a sociologist, and writer. He is the author of New Consciousness for a New World, he spends his time between Andalusia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

From Kingsley’s website:

Life is an incredible journey and learning curve. This may sound like a cliché to some, yet when it is experienced you’ll know it’s exactly how it is. As they say: ‘Those who taste, know’. Life is also an awakening to which each impact and encounter provides food and nutrition.
‘The bird which knows not of sweet water has his beak in salt water all the year’
So how I got to be where I am is itself a tale.
After graduating with a degree in English Literature & American Studies (BA, 2:1 Hons) I decided I wanted to pursue my ambition to be a writer of fiction. So I took some minimum wage manual work (factories, postal, courier) in order to keep my mind untouched for writing in the evenings. Several years of living in a cold one-bedroom flat and having several novels rejected I decided it was time to reach out for the search to questions on my mind. I took a TEFL language training course in Ostrovo, Czech Republic, and then went to Prague to teach English and experience life. I met with several spiritual seekers, and many serious drinkers. After one year of intellectual pursuits I felt I needed a more ‘heart’ environment. I landed in Istanbul, Turkey.
I stay

ed for five years. In that time I undertook several courses in critical thinking and film. I moved to a private university and began

giving courses in English & American literature. I also plunged deeply into Turkish life & lore. I learnt the language, met with dervish groups, explored intimately, and travelled widely. I crossed pathways with many seekers of Truth. I also travelled through Egypt, Jordan, Palestinian territory, Tunisia, and other domains. Yet still my questions remained unanswered. I wrote reams of poetry though. I sensed the world was rapidly changing and I knew I had to keep up.
I moved back to the UK and gained an MA (Distinction) in ‘Globalization, Identity & Technology’ at Nottingham Trent University. My Masters thesis was on applying Ervin Laszlo’s ‘General Evolution Theory’ to new communications, specifically the Internet (‘An Evolutionary Paradigm of Social Systems’, 2003). Immediately after this I moved to Lancaster University to complete my doctorate in sociology. My research was on complexity theory and how it could be applied to new information communication networks, such as blogging and mobile phones (‘NEW COMPLEXITIES: converging spaces of connectivity, communication, and collaboration’, 2006). During this time I also worked as a lecturer and seminar teacher in various sociology subject areas. Yet my understanding of the world was developing on a path congruent

to how consensus thinking was viewing it.]]>

Christian de Quincey, Ph.D., is a philosopher and author who teaches consciousness, spirituality and cosmology at universities and colleges in the United States and Europe. He is also an international speaker on consciousness
Christian De Quincey is a professor of Philosophy and Consciousness Studies at John F. Kennedy University, Dean of Consciousness Studies and the Arthur M. Young Professor of Philosophy at the University of Philosophical Research, and adjunct faculty at the Holmes Institute, and at Schumacher College, Devon, England. He is founder of The Wisdom Academy that offers personal mentoring in consciousness studies (combining the “four Gifts of Knowing: The Scientist’s Gift of the senses and experimental method; The Philosopher’s Gift of reason and language; The Shaman’s Gift of participatory feeling and alternative states of consciousness; The Mystic’s Gift of transcendental intuition accessed in sacred silence”[1]). His writings on consciousness have appeared in a number of academic journals and popular magazines.
His books include Radical Nature: The Soul of Matter (Park Street Press, 2010), Radical Knowing: Understanding
Consciousness through Relationship (Park Street Press, 2005), Deep Spirit: Cracking the Noetic Code, a novel of visionary science and spirituality (Wisdom Academy Press, 2008), and Consciousness from Zombies to Angels: The Shadow and the Light of Knowing Who You Are (Park Street Press January 2009). His “Radical Consciousness” trilogy focuses on the nature of reality, the nature of consciousness and knowledge, and (in Radical Science: Exploring the Final Frontier of Consciousness [forthcoming]) he explores the transformations needed for a true science of consciousness. With Willis Harman, he co-authored The Scientific Exploration of Consciousness (Institute of Noetic Sciences, 1996).
He has worked in marketing and public relations, and as a journalist for various newspapers and magazines. De Quincey was formerly managing editor on Shift magazine (IONS Review), from the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
He served as adjunct faculty on the University of Arizona’s pioneering on-line degree course in consciousness studies, and as a member of advisory committee for the University of Arizona’s Center for Consciousness Studies.
De Quincey earned his PhD in Philosophy and Religion from the California Institute of Integral Studies, and a master’s degree in Consciousness Studies from John F. Kennedy University.
 

In this episode we spoke to Christian about the nature of consciousness, reality, how we think and perceive and how those perceptions can impact our experiences and the relationships in our lives.

Simon G. Powell is Author of: The Psilocybin Solution (2011), Darwin’s Unfinished Business (2012) and Magic Mushroom Explorer
In this episode we briefly touch on the neurological benefits of psilocybin. We cover aspects of the global consciousness system, nature;  as an intelligence system and its role in our history and culture as a species. We talk about ways to reconnect with this intelligence and how we can further this re-connection by realigning with the “inner” part of ourselves.
eviews of Simon’s Work:
“Simon G. Powell has crafted a magnificent, multifaceted argument for the reintegration of psychedelics into science, culture, psychotherapy, and religion to inspire our unbalanced species before we ‘push the biosphere into total decline.’ The Psilocybin Solutionpersuasively illuminates the profound social value of large numbers of people experiencing communion with and direct personal perception of Nature as a single system of self-organizing intelligence. A massive accomplishment!” (Rick Doblin, Ph.D., founder and president of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies)
“This book provides a clear and up-to-date picture of what goes on in the brain during the visionary psilocybin experience. The author’s intrepid speculations, centering on information as the fundamental stuff of the universe, are clearly signposted. The writing is lucid and a joy to behold, an important contribution.” (Jeremy Narby, anthropologist and author of The Cosmic Serpent, Intelligence in Nature, and The Psych)
“The profound experiences unlocked by the visionary psilocybin-containing mushrooms are more than a recreational holiday for the mind. They are, in fact, the key to understanding that consciousness is not an aspect of reality, it is reality itself.” (Dennis McKenna, Ph.D., ethnopharmacologist and coauthor of The Invisible Landscape)
“A worthy successor to Aldous Huxley’s The Doors of Perception, The Psilocybin Solution takes the reader behind the grand curtain of reality with a compelling hypothesis that approaches a unified field theory of human consciousness in an intelligent and interconnected universe.” (Bill Linton, CEO of Promega)
“In this fascinating and provocative book, Simon G. Powell speculates on the nature of reality. He posits that Nature is a deliberate and intelligently behaving system, and he pro
poses that psilocybin, by altering the neurochemistry of the brain in specific ways, enables novel patterns of information to emerge, allowing the psyche to become a sort of conduit to the Other. If in fact that is what actually happens, then entheogens (psychedelics) are much more important to the human species than has been realized.” (David E.

Peter Baldwin Panagore is the host of a daily inspirational TV and radio broadcast that airs on two NBC stations throughout Maine. Peter is an avid sailor and alpine.

He earned his B.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts and a Masters of Divinity from Yale Divinity School, with a focus on systematic theology and Christian mysticism.
His educational background and his 30 years of yoga and meditative practice and work as a pastor with the dying and grieving has given Peter a unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope. The retired pastor, who writes for The Huffington Post Blog Spot,  published 150 sermons in Homiletics journal—a leading national mainline sermon preparation journal, lives in rural coastal Maine with his wife.
When Peter Baldwin Panagore died on the side of a mountain, his life was forever changed. Decades later, the intense spiritual journey continues, with a story that combines the thrills of a wilderness adventure with the awe-inspiring elements of a paranormal novel.
In March of 1980, college senior Peter Panagore went ice climbing on the world-famous Lower Weeping Wall, along the Ice Fields Parkway in Alberta, Canada. His climbing partner was an experienced ice climber, but Panagore was a novice. On their descent, they became trapped on the side of the mountain. As the sun set, he was overcome by exhaustion and hypothermia. He died on the side of that mountain. And in those minutes on the other side, he experienced hell, forgiveness, and unconditional love. Heaven was beautiful.
Panagore’s death experience changed his life and resulted in an intense spiritual journey that has continued for decades. It impelled him to pursue a master’s degree at Yale Divinity School, focusing on systematic theology and Christian mysticism. His educational background coupled with 30 years of meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope.
I have told my story to audiences large and small for a decade now…. My story touches people’s hearts; every time I tell it the audience is gripped and silent…. This book is about hope. It is meant to give real hope to the dying, hope to the fearful, hope to the hopeless, hope to the grieving.— Peter Panagore

 In this episode we spoke to Peter about an experience that changed his life forever.

His educational background coupled with 30 years of yogic and meditative practice and 20 years of professional work with the dying and grieving has given him unique insight, language, and perspective on heaven, God, death, life, love, beauty, and hope… In this state he experienced a classic NDE,]]> Xavier yes 1:02:53 Episode 45 – Dean Radin PhD http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-45-dr-dean-radin/ Thu, 14 Jan 2016 22:23:59 +0000 http://www.thehumanxp.com/?p=1512 http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-45-dr-dean-radin/#comments http://www.thehumanxp.com/episode-45-dr-dean-radin/feed/ 2 <p>Dean Radin, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the INSTITUTE OF NOETIC SCIENCES (IONS) and Volunteer Faculty in the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State University.

In this episode we spoke to Dr. Dean Radin about his life, career and work.

From Dr. Radin’s website:
“Extended Bio: I was born on February 29th. For my 13th birthday celebration I rented a roller skating rink for an evening, invited all my friends, and we ate hot dogs, cup cakes, and shared a Spiderman-themed birthday cake. I am looking forward to my 21st birthday in 2036, when I can finally buy a beer.
My first career interest, at chronological age 4, was to be “jet propelled.” It took many years before I could better articulate what I meant by that, but that’s how I responded when adults asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. My next career interest was the classical violin, which I started at age 5 and continued to play for the next 20 years, the last five as a professional. Then I switched to fiddle and 5-string banjo and played in bluegrass bands for a number of years. Between gigs, I pursued other interests and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering,]]>

In this episode we spoke to Mr. Rick Simpson about his discovery, his life and his journey to bring awareness to the healing properties of Cannabis.

The Rick Simpson story is an interesting one; In 1974 Simpson was driving his car in his native Nova Scotia when a radio report came on about a study that found marijuana reduced cancerous tumors in mice. Specifically, researchers at the University of Virginia had found that several chemicals in marijuana acted against both cancerous tissue taken from mice and on cancerous tissue in the mice.
Some twenty years after Simpson heard the radio report about cannabinoids slowing the growth of tumors in mice, he was working in the boiler room at a hospital when he had a head injury. He suffered a concussion and for years afterward had headaches, ringing in the ears, and trouble sleeping. In 1998, he saw the movie Reefer Madness II  about the promise of marijuana as a medicine. He decided to try marijuana for his medical problems. He reasoned, the prescribed medicine he was taking wasn’t working. His doctor wouldn’t prescribe marijuana, so he grew his own. He eventually started experimenting with hemp oil that he made from the buds of his plants. After using hemp oil, he says, his headaches went away, the ringing in his ears got tolerable, he slept better, and his arthritis disappeared. “Within a few months,” he says, “people saw the difference. The oil controlled the pain, my blood pressure, and it allowed me to sleep. I lost weight and looked 20 years younger.”*
in 2003 Simpson had one facial spot removed and biopsied. Before he got the results of the biopsy, he self-diagnosed himself as having an infection where the spot had been removed. He applied cannabis oil to two other spots that hadn’t been surgically removed and a few days later, he says, they were gone. He put the oil on his self-diagnosed infection and it too disappeared. He self-diagnosed that the cancer came back and again he applied cannabis and again he concluded that cannabis had cured his cancer. The biopsy had confirmed, he says, that the removed spot was basal cell skin cancer. The other two spots weren’t tested before they disappeared. Simpson seems to have concluded that since the spot removed was skin cancer, the other two spots were also cancerous.

From Rick’s Website:
My name is Rick Simpson. I have been providing people with instructions on how to make Hemp Oil medicines since 2004. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Throughout man’s history hemp has always been known as the most medicinal plant in the world. Even with this knowledge hemp has always been used as a political and religious football.
The current restrictions against hemp were put in place and maintained, not because hemp is evil or harmful, but for big money to make more big money, while we suffer and die needlessly. Look at a proposal such as this; if we were allowed to grow hemp in our back yards and cure our own illnesses, what do you think the reaction of the pharmaceutical industry would b...]]>

Rick Doblin received his doctorate in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, where he wrote his dissertation on the regulation of the medical uses of psychedelics and marijuana and his Master’s thesis on a survey of oncologists about smoked marijuana vs. the oral THC pill in nausea control for cancer patients. He currently resides in Boston with his wife and three children. His undergraduate thesis at New College of Florida was a 25-year follow-up to the classic Good Friday Experiment, which evaluated the potential of psychedelic drugs to catalyze religious experiences. He also conducted a thirty-four year follow-up study to Timothy Leary’s Concord Prison Experiment. Rick studied with Dr. Stanislav Grof and was among the first to be certified as a Holotropic Breathwork practitioner.
He co-founded Earth Metabolic Design Laboratories in 1984 to support psychedelic research and Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) in 1986 with the goal of making MDMA an FDA-approved medicine in the United States by 2021.
Rick Doblin’s life is profiled in former Washington Post Magazine editor Tom Shroder‘s book Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy, and the Power to Heal.

Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies

The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a membership-based 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization working to develop psychedelics and marijuana into legal prescription drugs. MAPS was founded in 1986 by Rick Doblin, and is now based in Santa Cruz, California.

MAPS helps scientists design, fund, and obtain regulatory approval for studies of the safety and effectiveness of a number of controlled substances. MAPS works closely with government regulatory authorities worldwide such as the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) to ensure that all of its sponsored research protocols conform to ethical and procedural guidelines for clinical drug research. Included in MAPS’ research efforts are MDMA (Ecstasy) for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), LSD and psilocybin for the treatment of anxiety, cluster headaches, and depression associated with end-of-life issues, ibogaine for the treatment of opiate addiction, and alternative delivery systems for medical marijuana such as vaporizers and water pipes. MAPS officials say the organization’s ultimate goal is to establish a network of clinics where these and other treatments can be provided together with other therapies under the guidance of licensed physicians and therapists.

In addition to sponsoring scientific research, MAPS organizes continuing medical education (CME) conferences,]]>

Will Johnson received his BA, magna cum laude, in art and archaeology from Princeton University in 1968. After writing art criticism in New York for several years, he moved to the west coast, where he became a Buddhist practitioner in 1972 and trained as a Rolfer in 1976. Over the years he came to understand that the body was the doorway, not the obstacle, to personal growth and spiritual transformation, and that the worlds of somatics and dharma practice each possessed a kind of missing link to the other’s path of inquiry. In 1995 he founded The Institute for Embodiment Training, a teaching school that combines the orientation of Western somatic therapy with Eastern meditational practices.
Editorial Reviews

“Breathing Through the Whole Body is a beautiful book, somewhat meditative in and of itself. It examines each part of the deepening, explaining things like why our spine needs to be straight and why we focus on the breath. The overall purpose isn’t to look good but to find that inner quietness and rooted balance that will ultimately bring forth whole body breathing.” (Tami Brady, TCM Reviews)
“The book is written lovingly, offering compassionate explanations and poetically rendered practice exercises (Befriending Stillness, Drawing Down, The Breath of the Unfolding Fern). Very little effort is required to retrieve the gift that lies within its pages. It is a unique treasure.” (Anna Jedrziewski, Inannaworks.com)
“Will Johnson encourages readers to put together their whole spirit and gain a more complete control over their mind, emotions, and body. With exercises both physical, mental, and spiritual, Breathing Through the Whole Body is a strongly recommended pick for spirituality and Buddhist studies collections.” (James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review)
“The most profound healing gift of all is found within our very breath. Learn how the flow of breath is directly affected by chronic tensions in the body and in the mind. When breath starts flowing through more of the body, it becomes a direct agent of healing massaging and melting any areas of tension it touches. Experience the healing technique as taught 2500 years ago by the Buddha!” (What Women Must Know, October 2012)
“With simplicity and elegance, Will Johnson returns us to the original teachings of the Buddha on embodied spirituality, taking us deeper by teaching us a fuller and more subtle engagement with body and breath, leading directly to the expanse of liberation. This book will be treasured as a brilliant revelation of the spiritual possibilities of our own human mind.” (Reginald Ray, Ph.D., Buddhist teacher and author of Touching Enlightenment)
“I love every word! Thank you so much for bringing forth such a succinct and glowingly accurate account of the central role that body wisdom, somatic experiencing, plays in the process of awakening. It is a ‘how to do it’ book for all of us on this road to realizing our true nature.” (Robert Hall, Buddhist teacher and cofounder of the Lomi School)

Stuart Sovatsky  PhD  (AB, Ethics/Psychology, Princeton University; PhD, CIIS), was first choice to co-direct Ram Dass’s “prison ashram” and first in the US to bring meditation to the homeless in the 1970s that led to being selected to the 1977 Princeton University Outstanding Alumni Careers Panel. Copresident of the premiere professional organization for spiritually-oriented psychologists in the US, the Association for Transpersonal Psychology since 1999, he was a board trustee for the California Institute of Integral Studies for 20 years and in 1999, recipient of its Most Outstanding Alumni Award 1978-2008. He has consulted with the Chair of the Association of Unaligned Nations of the World and been in private audience with the current Perfect Master of Meher Baba Sufism in India.


In 2006-08, he was initiating co-convener of the forty country World Congress on Psychology and Spirituality in Delhi, India, supported by the Office of the Dalai Lama and where BKS Iyengar, SS Ravi Shankar, Jack Kornfield and Robert Thurman keynoted. Author of Eros Consciousness & Kundalini (US, India and Russia) Words From the Soul, Your Perfect Lips (US and Russia) and numerous articles on romantic love, ideal marriages and families, the therapeutic use of admiration, spirituality of infancy and Buddhist dissolution of suicidal thoughts. A serious scholar-practitioner of tantra yoga with NUMEROUS academic publications and university presentations throughout the US, India and Europe, he now leads couples retreats and trains therapists in the US and in Russia and is a faculty member at Moscow Psychoanalytic Institute, Lifelong Marriage and Kundalini Yoga.




Editorial Reviews

“I highly recommend this book to any spiritually minded person or couple looking to awaken their creative potential, deepen their life partnership, heal the emotional scars of past relationships, or mature their emotional-sexual being beyond the impulses of adolescence. This book would be a valuable asset for any couples therapist or marriage counselor who wants to offer a yogic spiritual component in their practice.” (Merikah Robertson, Common Ground, September 2014)
“Advanced Spiritual Intimacy is a cultural critique, tantric sex manual, and an astute primer in verbal and nonverbal communication. While most psychologists dismiss romance as infatuation, Sovatsky’s brilliance is to take it seriously as the ground of a highly disciplined but unique Kundalini-inspired approach to erotic intimacy.” (Seth Farber, Ph.D., author of The Spiritual Gift of Madness)
“Stuart Sovatsky’s well-researched and experimentally validated teachings, shared in Advanced Spiritual Intimacy, will surely be a great resource for empowering married couples around the world to find true spiritual happiness, as well as helping contemporary yogis and yoginis actually achieve the exalted goals of yogic adepts of ancient times.” (Robert Thurman, Professor of Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies, Columbia University,author of Inner Revo)
“Stuart Sovatsky’s Advanced Spiritual Intimacy is a tour de force. He takes us beyond the texts to demonstrate how the ancient path of spiritual growth may extend across a whole lifetime. This book expands our Western hermeneutic of tantra toward engendering a paradigm shift in the methodology for all who have been teaching its ways for years or decades. And as years and lifecycles unfold for persons of all walks ...]]>

He took his internship and general psychiatry residency at the University of California, Davis, Medical Center in Sacramento and he spent ten years as a tenured professor at the University of Mexico he performed the first new human studies with psychedelic drugs in the US in over 20 years. His research involved the powerful naturally-occurring compound, DMT – N,N-dimethyltryptamine. Led to this substance through his earlier study of the pineal gland as a potential biological locus for spiritual experiences, he administered several hundred doses of DMT to approximately 60 volunteers between 1990 and 1995. He wrote about this research in the popular book, DMT: The Spirit Molecule, which has sold over 100,000 copies, has been translated into 12 languages, and is now available as an audio-book. It also inspired an independent documentary by the same name, picked up by Warner Bros distributing in Fall, 2011. With three distinguished collaborators, he co-authored Inner Paths to Outer Space, which looks more carefully at the common “other worlds” experience that volunteers frequently reported during his research.

Rick Strassman was born in Los Angeles, California in 1952. He attended public schools in southern California’s San Fernando Valley, and graduated from Ulysses S. Grant High School in Van Nuys in 1969. As an undergraduate, he majored in zoology at Pomona College in Claremont California for two years before transferring to Stanford University, where he graduated with departmental honors in biological sciences in 1973. During summers in college he worked for RedKen Laboratories, developing cosmetics and a line of hair dyes, and also performed laboratory research at Stanford, on the development of the chicken embryo’s nervous system. He attended the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University in the Bronx, New York, where he obtained his medical degree with honors in 1977.
Dr. Strassman took his internship and general psychiatry residency at the University of California, Davis, Medical Center in Sacramento, and received the Sandoz Award for outstanding graduating resident in 1981. After graduating, he worked for a year in Fairbanks, Alaska in community mental health and private psychiatric practice. From 1982-1983, he obtained fellowship training in clinical psychopharmacology research at the University of California, San Diego’s Veteran’s Administration Medical Center. He then served on the clinical faculty in the department of psychiatry at UC Davis Medical Center, before taking a full-time academic position in the department of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque in 1984.
At UNM, Dr. Strassman performed clinical research investigating the function of the pineal hormone melatonin in which his research group documented the first known role of melatonin in humans. He also began the first new US government approved and funded clinical research with psychedelic drugs in over twenty years. Before leaving the University in 1995,]]>

He joined the faculty of the Ahmanson-Lovelace Brain Mapping Center at UCLA in 1999.  He is also author of the book “Mirroring People: The Science of Empathy and How We Connect with Others


 “To be honest, I really don’t give a damn about the brain. I care about the human soul. However, I happen to believe that the soul is in the mind, and that the mind is a functional process instantiated by the brain with its interactions with the body and the environment. Hence, I study the human brain. I have always been interested in how we put together perception and action. Why? Because we do it all the time, because I can’t think of a functioning life without the ability to integrate our percepts with our actions. Even when we are engaged in activities in which the integration of perception and action is almost an afterthought (for instance what I am doing now, typing on my computer this little blurb), we need to integrate perception and action to function properly.
My interest in perception-action coupling led me to the study, among other things, of mirror neurons. In science, as in life, one thing leads to another, and from mirror neurons I went to study human imitation, empathy, and more generally what is called social cognition. As a neurologist, however, I also have a strong interest in the neurobiological mechanisms of neuropsychiatric conditions and how to intervene on those mechanisms.”

His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven’s Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US – Quest For The Lost Civilisation and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age – have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognised as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity’s past.


In this episode we begin to introduce some of Mr. Hancock’s findings; we talk about the antiquity of civilization and we scratch the surface of the nature of our true selves and what it means to exist here – on planet earth.


Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Hancock’s early years were spent in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Later he went to school and university in the northern English city of Durham and graduated from Durham University in 1973 with First Class Honours in Sociology. He went on to pursue a career in quality journalism, writing for many of Britain’s leading newspapers including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976-1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983.
In the early 1980’s Hancock’s writing began to move consistently in the direction of books. His first book (Journey Through Pakistan, with photographers Mohamed Amin and Duncan Willetts) was published in 1981. It was followed by Under Ethiopian Skies (1983), co-authored with Richard Pankhurst and photographed by Duncan Willets , Ethiopia: The Challenge of Hunger (1984), and AIDS: The Deadly Epidemic (1986) co-authored with Enver Carim. In 1987 Hancock began work on his widely-acclaimed critique of foreign aid, Lords of Poverty, which was published in 1989. African Ark (with photographers Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith) was published in 1990.
Hancock’s breakthrough to bestseller status came in 1992 with the publication of The Sign and The Seal, his epic investigation into the mystique and whereabouts today of the lost Ark of the Covenant. ‘Hancock has invented a new genre,’ commented The Guardian, ‘an intellectual whodunit by a do-it-yourself sleuth.’ Fingerprints of the Gods, published in 1995 confirmed Hancock’s growing reputation. Described as ‘one of the intellectual landmarks of the decade’ by the Literary Review, this book has now sold more than three million copies and continues to be in demand all around the world. Subsequent works such as Keeper Of Genesis (The Message of the Sphinx in the US) with co-author Robert Bauval, and Heaven’s Mirror, with photographer Santha Faiia, have also been Number 1 bestsellers, the latter accompanied by Hancock’s three-part television series Quest For the Lost Civilisation.
In 2002 Hancock published Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age to great critical acclaim, and hosted the accompanying major TV series. This was the culmination of years of research ...]]>

JAMES FADIMAN, Ph.D., did his undergraduate work at Harvard and his graduate work at Stanford, doing research with the Harvard Group, the West Coast Research Group in Menlo Park, and Ken Kesey. He is the author of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide.
From the back cover: “The publication of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide could not be more timely; it coincides with a major renaissance of interest in psychedelic research worldwide. The information that it provides will thus be useful not only for the hundreds of thousands of people involved in self-experimentation but also for the new generation of psychedelic researchers.”

–Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of LSD: Doorway to the Numinous
Called “America’s wisest and most respected authority on psychedelics and their use,” James Fadiman has been involved with psychedelic research since the 1960s. In this guide to the immediate and long-term effects of psychedelic use for spiritual (high dose), therapeutic (moderate dose), and problem-solving (low dose) purposes, Fadiman outlines best practices for safe, sacred entheogenic voyages learned through his more than 40 years of experience–from the benefits of having a sensitive guide during a session (and how to be one) to the importance of the setting and pre-session intention.
Fadiman reviews the newest as well as the neglected research into the psychotherapeutic value of visionary drug use for increased personal awareness and a host of serious medical conditions, including his recent study of the reasons for and results of psychedelic use among hundreds of students and professionals. He reveals new uses for LSD and other psychedelics, including extremely low doses for improved cognitive functioning and emotional balance. Cautioning that psychedelics are not for everyone, he dispels the myths and misperceptions about psychedelics circulating in textbooks and clinics as well as on the Internet. Exploring the life-changing experiences of Ram Dass, Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley, and Huston Smith as well as Francis Crick and Steve Jobs, Fadiman shows how psychedelics, used wisely, can lead not only to healing but also to scientific breakthroughs and spiritual epiphanies.
JAMES FADIMAN, Ph.D., did his undergraduate work at Harvard and his graduate work at Stanford, doing research with the Harvard Group, the West Coast Research Group in Menlo Park, and Ken Kesey. A former president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and a professor of psychology, he teaches at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, which he helped found in 1975. An international conference presenter, workshop leader, management consultant, and author of several books and textbooks, he lives in Menlo Park, California, with his filmmaker wife, Dorothy.

When we become heart-centered, we move into greater harmony within ourselves and with the planet as a whole.


In this episode we spoke with Mr. Stephen Lindsteadt who is a researcher in the realm of consciousness and heart expansion and has developed a software that helps people reconnect with themselves in the most fundamental way – through their heart.





This book describes how life’s challenges provide opportunities for transformation. They often force us to seek refuge and guidance with our nonindividual self. Yet, it is the Heart of Understanding, the Buddha self, that we find difficult to access in our conditioned responses to personal affronts.
Scalar Heart Connection™ is only one of many tools that we can utilize to help us reconnect with our inner creativity, where our moment-to-moment responses align with intuitive and unitive consciousness.
Stephen says reconnecting with the inner voice of our heart’s innate wisdom is vital if humanity is going to survive the 21st Century.

In this episode we spoke to Dr. Mate regarding various aspects of this condition as viewed by western society,  Dr. Gabor Mate is a world renowned speaker, best selling author and lecturer who specializes in the study and treatment of addiction.


In this episode we spoke to Dr. Mate regarding various aspects of this condition as viewed by western society, how we can change some of the misconceptions regarding addiction and use compassion when dealing with people suffering from this disease.


A renowned speaker, and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics including addiction, stress and childhood development. Rather than offering quick-fix solutions to these complex issues, Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories, and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them. For twelve years Dr. Maté worked in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with patients challenged by hard-core drug addiction, mental illness and HIV, including at Vancouver’s Supervised Injection Site. With over 20 years of family practice and palliative care experience and extensive knowledge of the latest findings of leading-edge research, Dr. Maté is a sought-after speaker and teacher, regularly addressing health professionals, educators, and lay audiences throughout North America.


As an author, Dr. Maté has written several bestselling books including the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction; When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress; and Scattered Minds: A New Look at the Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder, and co-authored Hold on to Your Kids. His works have beenpublished internationally in twenty languages.
Dr. Maté is the co-founder of Compassion for Addiction, a new non-profit that focusses on addiction. He is also an advisor of Drugs over Dinner.
Dr. Maté has received the Hubert Evans Prize for Literary Non-Fiction; an Honorary Degree (Law) from the University of Northern British Columbia; an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University; the 2012 Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award from Mothers Against Teen Violence; and the 2012 AccolAIDS award for Health Promotion and Harm Reduction, Positive Living Society of B.C.. He is an adjunct professor in the Faculty of Criminology, Simon Fraser University.


A recurring theme in Maté’s books is the impact of a person’s childhood on their mental and physical health through neurological and psychological mechanisms, which he connects with the need for social change. In the book In the Realm of the Hungry Ghosts, he proposes new approaches to treating addiction (e.g. safe injection sites) based on an understanding of the biological and socio-economic roots of addiction.
He describes the significant role of “early adversity” i.e. stress, mistreatment and particularly childhood abuse, in increasing susceptibility to addiction. This happens through the impairment of neurobiological development, impairing the brain circuitry involved in addiction, motivation and incentive.
Dr. Mate argues the “war on drugs” actually punishes people for having been abused and entrenches addiction more deeply as studies show that stress is the biggest driver of addictive relapse and behavior.
He says a system that marginalizes, ostracizes and institutionalizes people in facilities with no care and easy access to drugs, only worsens the problem. He also argues the environmental causes of addiction point to the need to improve child welfare policies (e.g. U.S. welfare laws that force many single women to find low-paying jobs far away from home and their children) and the need for better support for families overall, as most children in North America are now away from their parents from an early age due to economic conditions.]]>

In this episode we spoke to Fateh Kaur (Mia Rosen Glick) on the benefits of Kundalini Yoga.
Mia is a Miami native. At fourteen, she started modeling. As a teenager, she began to practice yoga for stress relief from work, school and social pressure. In the 90‘s, while living and working as a Ford Plus size model in NYC, she discovered her passion for Kundalini yoga (3HO) as a tool to release and purify the body and to renew the spirit. She studied directly under Yogi Bhajan at The Master‘s Touch in Espanola, NM in 1996 and met with him many times over the years for guidance. In 1997, She traveled to Pune, India to learn from BKS Iyengar and Geeta at their school. Mia has taught yoga for over 15 years and began teaching prenatal at the beginning of her pregnancy, 13 years ago. She is certified in Kundalini yoga & Prenatal Yoga along with years of training in Anusara, Iyengar and 5 Rhythms.


Kundalini Yoga (Sanskrit kuṇḍalinī-yoga कुण्डलिनी योग), also known as laya yoga, is a school of yoga. Kundalini yoga was influenced by the tantra and shakta schools ofHinduism.
Kundalini yoga derives its name through a focus on awakening kundalini energy through regular practice of meditation, pranayama, chanting mantra and yoga asana.[1]Called by practitioners “the yoga of awareness”, it aims “to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on the compassion and consciousness needed to serve and heal others.”[2]
In 1968 Yogi Bhajan introduced his own brand of kundalini yoga into the United States, “Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan”. Yogi Bhajan founded the “Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization” (3HO) as a teaching organization. Yogi Bhajan took Brahmachari’s unique postures and techniques, attached them to Tantric theories and Virsa Singh’s mantras, and sold them as his own creation called “Kundalini” yoga

He focuses his work on authentic traditional and modern disciplines of shamanism. Bilingual in English and Spanish, he has a Bachelors degree in Anthropology, Hamilton Souther is a Master Ayahuasca Shaman and Founder of the Blue Morpho Foundation. He focuses his work on authentic traditional and modern disciplines of shamanism. Bilingual in English and Spanish, he has a Bachelors degree in Anthropology, and has practiced shamanism worldwide. Legendary Master Shamans Alberto Torres Davila and Julio Llerena Pinedo gave Hamilton the title of Master Shaman after completing an apprenticeship under the tutelage of the two. Over the last 12 years, he has guided thousands of participants into shamanic states of consciousness and has transformed shamanism into an accessible spiritual modality for westerners. Within that development Hamilton has been able to heal westerners of depression, anxiety, drug addiction and PTSD. His ceremonies also help people find their deepest purposes and goals in life.
The year is 2001 Hamilton Souther has just completed a degree in anthropology and is 23 years old. He is called to an apprenticeship to become a master shaman.
Hamilton is accepted by and begins training under the tutelage of Don Alberto Torres Davila.
Don Alberto is a Maestro Ayahuasquero, Palero and Sanangero who has over 3,000 ceremonies of experience. He started apprenticing at the age of 8 under the tutelage of his grandfather. He came from a lineage of shamans that extended back to the Lamas people before the arrival of the Spanish. He had not worked with westerners before agreeing to work with hamilton. He had worked as a traditional healer treating people from local communities in and around his home town.
After the first three months of apprenticeship with Don Alberto, Hamilton is accepted by Julio Llerena Pinedo (Maestro Ayahuascquero, Palero and Sanangero) as his apprentice as well. Julio became hamilton’s grandfather maestro taking him under his wing as he had done for Alberto 30 years earlier. The two of them guided hamilton’s apprenticeship, as they had been guided, taking him through diets and ceremonies.
Hamilton continues to apprentice for 12 years and then opens “Blue Morpho” an ayahuasca retreat center.
In Hamilton’s words:
“I hoped that Blue Morpho would allow me to live a frontier life in the jungle. My dream was to be able to support myself enough to be able to continue learning and living in the jungle. I lived for apprenticeship and the ability to continue participating in diets and ceremonies.
After our first year I knew that Blue Morpho would become a center dedicated solely to shamanism.
…My maestros guided me with very little verbal discussion about Ayahuasca and apprenticeship. The doctor spirits taught me directly through vision and realization. Ayahausca coursed through every part of my being transforming my mind, body and spirit.
I completed my apprenticeship and was granted the rank of Maestro by Julio in December 2004. Julio was 86 at the time and I was the last shaman to be granted the rank of Maestro by him ”
Blue Morpho:
Blue Morpho was founded by its owner, Hamilton Souther, as a center for shamanism 300 kilometers from the city of Iquitos in the Peruvian Amazon rain forest. Blue Morpho currently has two master shamans (Maestros) working in the camp. Hamilton Souther, and Don Alberto Torres Davila, as well as several apprentice shamans and a staff of over ten native Peruvians. Blue Morpho maintains its connection and roots to traditional shamanic practices through the presence of Don Alberto Torres Davila. He heads the mesa of shamans (group of shamans from the same lineage) which includes Hamilton Souther. Hamilton Souther was trained under Master Shamans Don Julio Llerena Pinedo and Don Alberto Torres Davila, starting in 2001 through 2006, at which time he was granted the status of Maestro by his mentors.]]>

Obesity is an epidemic that plagues western society; Nearly 78 million adults and 13 million children in the United States deal with the health and emotional effects of obesity every day.
The solution to their problem sounds deceptively simple — take in fewer calories a day and increase exercise.
Obesity is defined simply as too much body fat. Your body is made up of water, fat, protein, carbohydrate and various vitamins and minerals. If you have too much fat — especially around your waist — you’re at higher risk for health problems, including high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes.
Being obese can:

* raise blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
* lower “good” HDL cholesterol. HDL cholesterol is linked with lower heart disease and stroke risk, so low LDL tends to raise the risk.
* increase blood pressure.
* induce diabetes. In some people, diabetes makes other risk factors much worse. The danger of heart attack is especially high for these people.


 
In this episode we speak to Dr. Carl Lavie a well versed doctor that has over 700 medical publications under his belt and most recently has written “The Obesity Paradox”.

CERN is the razor’s bleeding edge of frontier science; these experiments quite possibly will give mankind a perspective into the nature of reality as we’ve never before understood or seen.
CERN or (in french: Organisation européenne pour la recherche nucléaire) is the The European Organization for Nuclear Research  and what the scientists at CERN happen to be doing is indubitably going to change scientific theory as we understand it.
In the mid 1960’s a particle physicist named Peter Higgs, came up with an idea that there may be a particle floating around that we could observe. CERN has effectively built the machine necessary to find this elusive particle and went on to prove that theory by finding what is now known as the Higgs Boson.
This feat is by no means small, CERN is the largest laboratory in the world – it spans two countries and runs in a tunnel 27 kilometers round and 175 meters deep; beneath the French and Swiss Boarder near Geneva Switzerland. it’s also credited with birthing the internet.
The aim of the LHC is to allow physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high energy physics like – the standard model and other newer particles predicted by supersymmetric theories.
In this episode we speak with Dr. Florian Goertz who is part of the theory division at CERN – a highly interesting individual with one of the most interesting jobs on the planet.
You can find the experiments being conducted with the LHC here: http://home.web.cern.ch/about/experiments
CERN:
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.
Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 21 member states.


Antimatter:
In 1928, British physicist Paul Dirac wrote down an equation that combined quantum theory and special relativity to describe the behavior of an electron moving at a relativistic speed. The equation – which won Dirac the Nobel prize in 1933(link is external) – posed a problem: just as the equation x2=4 can have two possible solutions (x=2 or x=-2), so Dirac’s equation could have two solutions, one for an electron with positive energy, and one for an electron with negative energy. But classical physics (and common sense) dictated that the energy of a particle must always be a positive number.
Dirac interpreted the equation to mean that for every particle there exists a corresponding antiparticle, exactly matching the particle but with opposite charge. For the electron there should be an “anti-electron”, for example, identical in every way but with a positive electric charge.]]>

Ninjutsu
In the 1970’s Mr. Stephen Hayes traveled to japan to seek out Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi Sensei, the grandmaster of the ninjutsu fighting art.
Without even correspondence from Hatsumi Sensei Mr. Stephen Hayes accomplished the seemingly impossible for a westerner at the time – he began studying the art of the ninja.
After several decades of training Mr. Stephen Hayes brought back the teachings of Hatsumi Sensei and opened his own schools to spread awareness of one of the most esoteric fighting styles known to man.
Black Belt magazine regards Mr. Stephen Hayes as “A Legend; one of the most infuential martial arts masters alive in the world today” 
In the late 1980’s Mr. Hayes serendipitously began serving as the head of the protection detail to his holiness the Dalai Lama.
In this episode we cover Mr. Hayes’ story, his adventure through Japan and how he has changed the face of martial arts in the west forever.
The Ninja:
A ninja (忍者?) or shinobi (忍び?) was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan. The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, and assassination, and open combat in certain situations. Their covert methods of waging war contrasted the ninja with the samurai, who observed strict rules about honor and combat.The shinobi proper, a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries, appeared in the Sengoku or “warring states” period, in the 15th century,but antecedents may have existed in the 14th century, and possibly even in the 12th century (Heian or early Kamakura era).
In the unrest of the Sengoku period (15th–17th centuries), mercenaries and spies for hire became active in the Iga Province and the adjacent area around the village of Kōga, and it is from the area’s clans that much of our knowledge of the ninja is drawn. Following the unification of Japan under the Tokugawa shogunate (17th century), the ninja faded into obscurity. A number of shinobi manuals, often centered on Chinese military philosophy, were written in the 17th and 18th centuries, most notably the Bansenshukai (1676).
The Bujinkan:
The Bujinkan (武神館) is an international martial arts organization  based in Japan and headed by Masaaki Hatsumi. The combat system taught by this organization comprises nine separate ryūha, or schools, which are collectively referred to as Bujinkan Budō Taijutsu. The Bujinkan is most commonly associated with ninjutsu. However, Masaaki Hatsumi uses the term Budo (meaning martial way) as he says the ryūha are descended from historical samurai schools that teach samurai martial tactics and ninjutsu schools that teach ninja tactics.
Toshindo:
To-Shin Do is a martial art founded by Black Belt Hall of Fame instructor Stephen K. Hayes in 1997. It is a modernized version of ninjutsu, and differs from the traditional form taught by Masaaki Hatsumi’s  Bujinkan organization.  Instruction focuses on threats found in contemporary western society. In addition to hand-to-hand combat skills, students are exposed to: methods for survival in hostile environments, security protection for dignitaries, how to instruct classes and run a school, classical Japanese weapons, meditation mind science, and health restoration yoga. The headquarters school (hombu) is located in Dayton, Ohio, USA.

Tom Campbell is a NASA physicist, researcher, consciousness explorer and author; in this episode we cover his book “My Big TOE”



Tom Campbell began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out Of The Body, Far Journeys, and The Ultimate Journey) at Monroe Laboratories in the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe’s laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the same time. Campbell has been experimenting with, and exploring the subjective and objective mind ever since. For the past thirty years, Campbell has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness.
During that same time period, he has excelled as a working scientist, a professional physicist dedicated to pushing back the frontiers of cutting edge technology, large-system simulation, technology development and integration, and complex system vulnerability and risk analysis. Presently, and for the past 20 years, he has been at the heart of developing US missile defense systems.
Tom is the “TC (physicist)” described in Bob Monroe’s second book Far Journeys and has been a serious explorer of the frontiers of reality, mind, consciousness, and psychic phenomena since the early 1970s. My Big TOE is a model of existence and reality that is based directly on Campbell’s scientific research and first hand experience. It represents the results and conclusions of thirty years of careful scientific exploration of the boundaries and contents of reality from both the physical and metaphysical viewpoints. The author has made every effort to approach his explorations without bias or preconceived notions. There is no belief system, dogma, creed, or unusual assumptions at the root of My Big TOE.
By demanding high quality repeatable, empirical, evidential data to separate what’s real (exists independently and externally) from what’s imaginary or illusory, Campbell has scientifically derived this general model of reality.



Synopsis of the My Big TOE Trilogy
My Big TOE, written by a nuclear physicist in the language of contemporary Western culture, unifies science and philosophy, physics and metaphysics, mind and matter, purpose and meaning, the normal and the paranormal. The entirety of human experience (mind, body, and spirit) including both our objective and subjective worlds, are brought together under one seamless scientific understanding. 
If you have a logical, open, and inquisitive mind – an attitude of scientific pragmatism that appreciates the elegance of fundamental truth and the thrill of breakthrough – you will enjoy this journey of personal and scientific discovery.


Based upon careful scientific research and logical deduction, this is a book for all who have an interest in the nature of the reality in which they exist. My Big TOE is not only about scientific theory, function, process, and discovery – but also speaks to each individual reader about their innate capabilities. Readers will learn to appreciate that their human potential stretches far beyond the limitations of the physical universe.


This trilogy delivers the next major scientific conceptual breakthrough since relativity and quantum mechanics raised scientific eyebrows in the first half of the twentieth century. No catch, no megalomania, no hypothetical wackiness, no goofy beliefs,]]>

Dr. Paul Jaminet is a scientist with a Ph.D. in physics, University of California at Berkeley, 1992; Astrophysicist, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, 1992-1996, turned Internet entrepreneur and executive, turned strategy consultant and economist. Dr. Jaminet and his wife have had a longstanding interest in diet and health after suffering from their own chronic health problems and moving away from their respective industries they joined together and co-authored their book “The Perfect Health Diet”. After experimenting with low-carb Paleo diets in 2005, they spent seven years refining them,  and have successfully healed their own “middle-age” and chronic health problems through diet, learning a great deal about the benefits – and pitfalls – of these diets.



From Dr. Jaminet’s Website:

*
Disease, premature aging, and impaired health have four primary causes: malnutrition, food toxicity, evolutionarily discordant lifestyles, and chronic infections by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa.

*
These causes go together.  People who eat toxic, nutrient-poor diets are more likely to contract chronic infections and do not easily recover from them.

*
Yet the body has amazing powers of recovery.  On a healthy diet, the immune system can tackle and defeat most infections, especially with the aid of antimicrobial drugs.

*
A diet like the Perfect Health Diet should be the first treatment option in most diseases and an adjunct to therapy in all.



This was an interesting interview where we cover the various impacts of evolutionary biology, diet, health, nutrition and their respective roles in our everyday lives. We covered dietary supplements, which vitamins that may or may not be best for you, circadian rhythms and some very informing ideas on intermittent fasting, when and when not to eat and some common misconceptions about diet.

 MINDFULNESS

 
Mindfulness is “the intentional, accepting and non-judgemental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment”, which can be trained by meditational practice derived from Buddhist anapanasati.
The term “mindfulness” is derived from the Pali-term sati, “mindfulness”, which is an essential element of Buddhist practice, including vipassana, satipaṭṭhāna and anapanasati.
Mindfulness practice is being employed in psychology to alleviate a variety of mental and physical conditions, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and in the prevention of relapse in depression and drug addiction. It has gained worldwide popularity as a distinctive method to handle emotions.


Sati and smṛti
The Buddhist term translated into English as “mindfulness” originates in the Pali term sati and in its Sanskrit counterpart smṛti. The Abhidhammattha-sangaha, a keyabhidharma text from the Theravada tradition, defines sati as follows:
The word sati derives from a root meaning ‘to remember,’ but as a mental factor it signifies presence of mind, attentiveness to the present, rather than the faculty of memory regarding the past. It has the characteristic of not wobbling, i.e. not floating away from the object. Its function is absence of confusion or non-forgetfulness. It is manifested as guardianship, or as the state of confronting an objective field. Its proximate cause is strong perception (thirasaññā) or the four foundations of mindfulness.
Sati means not only, “moment to moment awareness of present events,” but also, “remembering to be aware of something or to do something at a designated time in the future”. In fact, “the primary connotation of this Sanskrit term [smrti] (and its corresponding Pali term sati) is recollection”.


Translation
The Pali-language scholar Thomas William Rhys Davids (1843–1922) first translated sati in 1881 as English mindfulness in sammā-sati “Right Mindfulness; the active, watchful mind”. Noting that Daniel John Gogerly (1845) initially rendered sammā-sati as “Correct meditation”,[ Davids explained, sati is literally ‘memory’ but is used with reference to the constantly repeated phrase ‘mindful and thoughtful’ (sato sampajâno); and means that activity of mind and constant presence of mind which is one of the duties most frequently inculcated on the good Buddhist.”[
Clinical psychology and psychiatry since the 1970s have developed a number of therapeutic applications based on mindfulness for helping people who are experiencing a variety of psychological conditions. Clinical studies have documented the physical and mental health benefits of mindfulness in general, and MBSR in particular. Programs based on MBSR and similar models have been widely adapted in schools, prisons, hospitals, veterans centers, and other environments.Find Minndfulness is a 30 day self-exploration course.


This program is designed to awaken joy and offer tools to help guide you to the realization that you are in charge of your wellbeing. The course features an intimate setting and fosters a supportive community.



Mindfulness is focusing your awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting your feelings, thoughts, and senses.
Mindfulness has been proven to increase your focus by increasing your capacity to resist distracting urges. The many benefits of mindfulness include improved relationships and concentrat...]]>

This is our Episode with Aurianna Joy where we discuss her work with holistic treatments; we also get into her journey and battle with lyme disease.
From Aurianna’s Blog:
“I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Washington and Oregon, until I was 12 when my family moved to the sunny state of Florida.  In May 2012, I took a complete leap of faith, leaving everything I knew behind, to travel throughout Europe.
After exploring for a few months, I ended up in Amsterdam where I lived for almost a year.  In August 2013, I took another jump straight into the unknown and traveled to the amazon jungle in Peru to work with an ancient sacred plant medicine, known as Ayahuasca.  Here I ended up spending almost six months deeply immersed in my work with the plants, shedding layers of unnecessary baggage while learning an incredible amount about myself and the world in which we live.
I’m now starting a new chapter in my life where I will be living a nomadic lifestyle, following my passion for travel and while learning and gathering more information along the way to put to use in my life’s work.  I’m not exactly sure where this journey will take me, and I’m excited to find out! 🙂
As a child I suffered for years from chronic pain, fatigue, depression, and other seemingly random symptoms.  When I was 14, I began searching for answers.  At the age of 16, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease.  Upon realizing that conventional Western medicine would be of no use to me, I turned to natural healing methods and began listening to my intuition about the next steps to take in my healing process.  I have chosen to look at this disease as a blessing, one in which I have been given the opportunity to personally experience the ability of the human body to cure itself of the imbalances that create dis-ease.  I have decided to use my life as a sort of experiment to understand the affects on the quality of my experience from traditional medicines, foods, thoughts, beliefs, relationships, sexuality, and everything in between.
What I do now is not a job, but a calling.  I truly believe each of us has a purpose, a reason for being here, and a message to share with the world.  Through my own journey to recovery and beyond, I’ve gained an abundance of wisdom to help those who are willing to step outside their comfort zone to make significant changes to their life experience.

Rak Razam is the world’s leading ‘experiential’ journalist, writing about and helping shape the emergence of a new cultural paradigm in the 21st century.


Author of the critically acclaimed book Aya Awakenings: A Shamanic Odyssey and the companion volume of interviews, The Ayahuasca Sessions (www.ayathebook.com), he is a frequent lecturer on ayahuasca and the shamanic revival sweeping the West. He wrote, produced and co-directed the groundbreaking new visionary documentary Aya: Awakenings (www.aya-awakenings.com) and he leads ayahuasca retreats in Peru:  http://www.aya-awakenings.com/retreats
He has been hosting dynamic speaking engagements, panel facilitation and lectures across Australia and North America at conferences, transformational festivals and other events for the past five years, weaving together the New Age, counter-culture and progressive thought. He has been called one of the “leading spokespersons for the new paradigm”.
His video interviews for website Reality Sandwich, New MAPS of Hyperspace, (http://vimeo.com/album/1688275) feature Sasha Shulgin, Alex Grey, Stan Grof, Rick Doblin, Ralph Metzner, Mountain Girl, and more luminaries, and do his interviews with ayahuasca experts, Awakenings, (https://www.youtube.com/playlist list=PLb3lNZCb4bKiH94yqz45xONBNi3xNzE6k) .  A prolific media maker and networker, he hosts a popular podcast show In a Perfect World (http://in-a-perfect-world.podomatic.com)



In this episode we discuss moving past the memetic architecture Terence McKenna established; the absorption of the psychedelic experience into the mainstream and the dangers inherent in that; the value of psychoactives to re-awaken the soul exactly at the time we need a higher perspective; and the role of mother earth as a macro organism we are embedded within and need to work in synergy with her. Is the next wave of psychonautica the harnessing of our own endogenous neurochemicals to reclaim our full potential?   How does the Western ayahuasca movement spearhead a planetary religious impulse? What is the purpose of life and how can we work with it?

Jonah Berger is a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and author of the recent New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellerContagious: Why Things Catch On.  Dr. Berger has spent over 15 years studying how social influence works and how it drives products and ideas to catch on.  He’s published dozens of articles in top-tier academic journals, consulted for a variety of Fortune 500 companies, and popular outlets like the New York Times andHarvard Business Review often cover his work.
Why do some things catch on while others fail?  What makes online content go viral?  And why do some products, ideas, and behaviors get more word of mouth than others?  Professor Jonah Berger examines the behavioral science that underlies these questions.  He examines how consumers make decisions, how ideas diffuse, and how social influence leads people to imitate (or avoid) what others are doing.
Berger is a Marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a visiting professor at Cornell Tech.  He has published dozens of articles in top-tier academic journals, and popular accounts of his work frequently appear in popular outlets like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR,Science,Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, Wired, Business Week, The Atlantic, andThe Economist. His research has also been featured in the New York TimesMagazine’s “Year in Ideas.”  Berger has been recognized with a number of awards for both scholarship and teaching, including various early career awards and being named Wharton’s Iron Prof (an award for awesome faculty research).
Professor Berger has helped all sorts of companies and organizations get their stuff to catch on.  From Fortune 500 companies to small start-ups, and multinationals to non-profits, Berger has helped increase product adoption, sharpen effective messaging, and develop marketing strategy.
What makes things popular? Why do people talk about certain products and ideas more than others? Why are some stories and rumors more infectious? And what makes online content go viral?
Jonah Berger has spent the last decade answering these questions. In Contagious, Berger reveals the secret science behind word-of-mouth and social transmission. Discover how six basic principles drive all sorts of things to become contagious, from consumer products and policy initiatives to workplace rumors and YouTube videos. Contagious combines groundbreaking research with powerful stories. Learn how a luxury steakhouse found popularity through the lowly cheesesteak, why anti-drug commercials might have actually increased drug use, and why more than 200 million consumers shared a video about one of the most seemingly boring products there is: a blender.
If you’ve wondered why certain stories get shared, e-mails get forwarded, or videos go viral, Contagious (and this episode) explains why, and shows how to leverage these concepts to craft contagious content. The book also provides a set of specific, actionable techniques for helping information spread—for designing messages, advertisements, and information that people will share. Whether you’re a manager at a big company, a small business owner trying to boost awareness, a politician running for office, or a health official trying to get the word out, Contagious will show you how to make your product or idea catch on.

In this episode we talk with Isaac Weishaupt about the work he’s been involved in regarding occult symbology in mainstream media. We get into some stuff on stanley kubrick and the various influences of occult and mainstream media.
From Isaac’s Blog:
Hello, my name is Isaac Weishaupt and I’m the founder of IlluminatiWatcher.com. I’ve been researching my entire life as an ongoing mission to determine if this reality is the truth or a cunning holographic deception. I don’t fully subscribe to any conspiracy theories, but I do find some intriguing if they resonate with any logic (also if they don’t, who am I kidding, some of them are just clever). I live in America and feel that a lot of people are more concerned with being entertained than being informed or educated. Our media reflects that. I do listen to all kinds of music, although I feel as if it is almost manipulative so I also listen to smooth jazz and classical to balance the more hardcore stuff out. I focus on the Illuminati, transhumanism, religion, aliens, cults, horror, music, various conspiracy theorists (e.g. Freeman Fly, David Icke, et. al.) and the occult. This website is just a bite into some of the material I dig through daily, I figured I might as well share some of it in case there are others out there who follow the same breadth of material that I do.
For those of you who’d like to learn a bit more about what got me interested in all of this, I’ll give you a brief rundown of the synchronistic events that you and I together at this moment. It all started back in the 1990s when I was first giving thought to subjects like extraterrestrials and government cover-ups through the show X-Files. I was interested in other alien-related works of art like The Head, the docu-drama film Fire in the Sky, and of course, the Alien films. At this point of my life it was merely an interest, but it was intense enough that it never fully left my mind. I recall walking around one night with a friend that held similar interests and we would shout out to the sky to have aliens abduct us, just so we would know for certain if it was true. Of course that is a ridiculous thing to do (on many levels- who would really want that to happen to them?!), but the point is that I knew I had a desire to find the truth, even in my adolescent years.
When I turned 18 I joined the military and met a lot of great people in my journeys. One friend I met in South Korea turned me on to William Cooper’s Behold a Pale Horse. I obtained a copy of this book and it BLEW MY MIND! A lot of the material referenced in X-Files was actually showing up in the former Naval Intelligence Officer’s book (e.g. Majestic 12, cover-ups, etc.). The book really opened up my mind to a higher level agenda than merely covering up extraterrestrial existence. It gave me the awareness to realize that perhaps we were being deceived for the gain of some shadowy group here on Earth…

For thousands of years astrologers have closely watched the starry firmament and followed the cycles of the Sun, Moon and planets as they danced across the heavens. They noticed how the comings and goings of people and events

here on Earth were described by the cycles of the planets and their connections with each other.
So, you won’t be reading about your personal astrology in this episode. To be honest, those newspaper reports will never have the accuracy of a real astrological reading. They speak to only to your Sun sign, ignoring the other 90% of

your birth chart.
Skywatch is a report on the astrology of the day—the energy that is on the street for everybody—all over the Earth. The pattern changes quickly. Some days are better than others. Following the Skywatch will alert you to these shifts in energy and mood in your personal and business concerns. And help you have good timing in life.

A near-death experience (NDE) is a personal experience associated with impending death, encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light. 38%-50% of the American Adult population who come close to clinical death have had a near-death experience.


Explanatory models for the NDE can be divided into several broad categories, including psychological, physiological, and transcendental explanations.[4][5][6] Research from neuroscience explains the NDE in terms of various physiological and psychological factors,[7] while some NDE researchers in the field of near-death studies advocate for a transcendental explanation.
The equivalent French term expérience de mort imminente (experience of imminent death) was proposed by the French psychologist and epistemologist Victor Egger as a result of discussions in the 1890s among philosophers and psychologists concerning climbers’ stories of the panoramic life review during falls.[12][13] In 1968 Celia Green published an analysis of 400 first-hand accounts of out-of-body experiences.[14] This represented the first attempt to provide a taxonomy of such experiences, viewed simply as anomalous perceptual experiences, or hallucinations. These experiences were popularized by the work of psychiatrist Raymond Moody in 1975 as the near-death experience (NDE).

It is mixed with the leaves of Chacruna or other dimethyltryptamine (DMT)-containing plant species. Ayahuasca , also commonly called yagé (/jɑːˈh/), is a psychedelic brew made out of Banisteriopsis caapi vine in combination with various plants. It is mixed with the leaves of Chacruna or other dimethyltryptamine (DMT)-containing plant species. The brew, first described academically in the early 1950s byHarvard ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes, who found it employed for divinatory and healing purposes by the native peoples of Amazonian Peru, is known by a number of different names.
It has been reported that some effects can be felt from consuming the caapi vine alone, but that DMT-containing plants (such as Psychotria) remain inactive when drunk as a brew without a source of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as B. caapi. How indigenous peoples discovered the hallucinogenic properties of the plants used in the ayahuasca brew remains unclear. Many indigenous Amazonian people say they received the instructions directly from plants and plant spirits.
People who have consumed ayahuasca report having spiritual revelations regarding their purpose on Earth, the true nature of the universe as well as deep insight into how to be the best person they possibly can.[2] This is viewed by many as a spiritual awakening and what is often described as a rebirth.[3] In addition, it is often reported that individuals feel they gain access to higher spiritual dimensions and make contact with various spiritual or extra-dimensional beings who can act as guides or healers.


Author Don Jose Campos claims that people may experience profound positive life changes subsequent to consuming ayahuasca. Vomiting can follow ayahuasca ingestion; this purging is considered by many shamans and experienced users of ayahuasca to be an essential part of the experience, as it represents the release of negative energy and emotions built up over the course of one’s life. yes 27:56

The Torah is a guidebook for Jewish souls showing how they can access the divine and bring kodesh/holiness into the world. Judaism is an ancient family tradition; and in order to understand this ancient tradition, we need to both experience, and study the tradition. While there are many venues for study, there are very few venues for experiencing what we have learned/are learning. We fill this gap with teachings, classes, and workshops using the ConsciousTorah method.
Torah (/ˈtɔːrəˌˈtoʊrə/; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה, “Instruction, Teaching”), or the Pentateuch (/ˈpɛntəˌtuːk, –ˌtjuːk/), is the central concept in the religious Judaic tradition. It has a range of meanings. It can most specifically mean the first five books of the twenty-four books of the Tanakh, it usually includes the rabbinic commentaries, the term Torah means instruction and offers a way of life for those who follow it, it can mean the continued narrative from Genesis to the end of the Tanakh, it can even mean the totality of Jewish teaching, culture and practice.[1][need quotation to verify] Common to all these meanings, Torah consists of the foundational narrative of the Jewish people: their call into being by God, their trials and tribulations, and their covenant with their God, which involves following a way of life embodied in a set of moral and religious obligations and civil laws (halakha).
In rabbinic literature the word “Torah” denotes both the five books, Torah Shebichtav (תורה שבכתב, “Torah that is written”), and an Oral Torah, Torah Shebe’al Peh (תורה שבעל פה, “Torah that is spoken”). The Oral Torah consists of interpretations and amplifications which according to rabbinic tradition have been handed down from generation to generation and are now embodied in the Talmud and Midrash.[2]
According to rabbinic tradition, all of the teachings found in the Torah, both written and oral, were given by God to Moses, some of them at Mount Sinai and others at the Tabernacle, and all the teachings were written down by Moses, which resulted in the Torah we have today. According to a Midrash, the Torah was created prior to the creation of the world, and was used as the blueprint for Creation.[3] The majority of Biblical scholars believe that the written books were a product of the Babylonian exilic period (c. 600 BCE) and that it was completed by the Persian period (c. 400 BCE).[4]
Traditionally, the words of the Torah are written on a scroll by a sofer on parchment in Hebrew. A Torah portion is read publicly at least once every three days, in the halachically prescribed tune, in the presence of a congregation.[5] Reading the Torah publicly is one of the bases for Jewish communal life.

This is the final episode in the two part series we did with Robert Bruce, regarding his work on Practical Psychic Self Defense. We get into the nitty gritty of various psychic attacks, demonic possession and all things paranormal. We also got into some guest questions near the end on some astral phenomena.
Robert Bruce (born 1955) is an English-born mystic author living in Australia. Bruce is best known for his studies of out of body experience, which first became public in the early 1990s through his activity in the alt.out-of-body Internet news group. Over time, he collected and peer-tested his findings in an evolving set of articles, A Treatise on Astral Projection,[1] which he later expanded upon substantially to form his first book, Astral Dynamics, which has sold over 50, 000 copies as of 2008.[2]
In 2008, Robert Bruce was listed as one of the world’s foremost OBE experts by EnlightenNext magazine.[3]
Energy Body Development
Whilst prototyping a visualisation-free method of out of body experience for blind people, Bruce discovered a form of mental focus on parts of the body called tactile imaging,[4] which is based on the sense of touch.

Where we discussed his book, Practical Psychic Self Defense.


Robert Bruce (born 1955) is an English-born
mystic author living in Australia. Bruce is best known for his studies of out of body experience, which first became public in the early 1990s through his activity in the alt.out-of-body Internet news group. Over time, he collected and peer-tested his findings in an evolving set of articles, A Treatise on Astral Projection,[1] which he later expanded upon substantially to form his first book, Astral Dynamics, which has sold over 50, 000 copies as of 2008.[2]
In 2008, Robert Bruce was listed as one of the world’s foremost OBE experts by EnlightenNext magazine.[3]
Energy Body Development
Whilst prototyping a visualisation-free method of out of body experience for blind people, Bruce discovered a form of mental focus on parts of the body called tactile imaging,[4] which is based on the sense of touch. This method was released in the mid-1990s in Bruce’s tutorial New Energy Ways, or NEW for short. Robert claims that these sensations are caused by pre-movement neuron charging and discharging, and that this also stimulates the human energy body. This finding is in accordance with the claims of Eckhart Tolle and the Taoist teachings of Mantak Chia.[5]

A coronal mass ejection (CME) is a massive burst of gas and magnetic field arising from the solar coronaand being released into the solar wind, as observed in a coronagraph.
Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares or filament eruptions, but a broadly accepted theoretical understanding of these relationships has not been established. CMEs most often originate from active regions on the Sun’s surface, such as groupings ofsunspots associated with frequent flares. Near solar maxima, the Sun produces about three CMEs every day, whereas near solar minima, there is about one CME every five days.
Impact on Earth
When the ejection is directed towards Earth and reaches it as an interplanetary CME (ICME), the shock wave of the traveling mass of solar energetic particles causes a geomagnetic storm that may disrupt Earth’s magnetosphere, compressing it on the day side and extending the night-side magnetic tail. When the magnetosphere reconnects on the nightside, it releases power on the order of terawatt scale, which is directed back toward Earth’s upper atmosphere.
Solar energetic particles can cause particularly strong aurorae in large regions around Earth’s magnetic poles. These are also known as the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) in the northern hemisphere, and the Southern Lights (aurora australis) in the southern hemisphere. Coronal mass ejections, along with solar flares of other origin, can disrupt radio transmissions and cause damage to satellites and electrical transmission line facilities, resulting in potentially massive and long-lasting power outages.[6][7]
Humans at high altitudes, as in airplanes or space stations, risk exposure to relatively intense cosmic rays. Cosmic rays are potentially lethal in high quantities. The energy absorbed by astronauts is not reduced by a typical spacecraft shield design and, if any protection is provided, it would result from changes in the microscopic inhomogeneity of the energy absorption events.[8]

Clark Stewart has been researching the sun’s impact on earth for more than a decade. In this episode we go over how the sun affects our lives on all levels.

From Clark’s Work:
Mayan Rosetta Stone is a functioning algorithm that was discovered within the harmonics of the long count calendar.

This algorithm is rooted in time and synchronizes with geophysics, solar physics, neurophysiology, I.e. Geo Helio coupling. This is a model to show how the sun-earth energy affects consciousness, biology, climate, economics, etc.

In this episode we talked to Brian foster about spiritism and his book “The Case for Reincarnation”
Spiritism is a spiritualistic doctrine codified in the 19th century by the French educator Allan Kardec, proposed to the study of “the nature, origin, and destiny of spirits, and their relation with the corporeal world”.
From his book “The Case for Reincarnation”:
“You have lived multiple lives. At times you have been rich, poor, a servant and a slave. Maybe even a King or a Queen, at the least a member of the minor nobility. Many famous people in the past have believed in reincarnation, such as Thomas Edison and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. They both believed in the spirit world and made attempts to communicate with the world beyond. There is a realm, a universe greater than ours and it is filled with intelligences that we can only wonder at. There are spirits around the earth who are actively helping and guiding us in our planning and during our actual incarnations.
There are too many unexplained phenomena for there to be nothing after death. How do some people have past life memories? Why do children remember past lives and then lose the ability after a certain age? How can some people know the future? And more importantly, why do you have premonitions that come true? How could you know what could happen with such certainty?

Reincarnation is a tenet in many religions, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, and is frequently mentioned as parts of varied sects of Christianity and Judaism. It is the concept whereby we have a spirit, in which we retain our central personalities and memories, while in the spirit world, but lose our memories while in a physical form.”

For thousands of years astrologers have closely watched the starry firmament and followed the cycles of the Sun, Moon and planets as they danced across the heavens.


They noticed how the comings and goings of people and events here on Earth were described by the cycles of the planets and their connections with each other. Skywatch is a report on the astrology of the day—the energy that is on the street for everybody—all over the Earth. The pattern changes quickly. Some days are better than others. Following the Skywatch will alert you to these shifts in energy and mood in your personal and business concerns. And help you have good timing in life.
Lance Ferguson has been in the Astrology field since 1975.


Astrology consists of several pseudoscientific systems of divination[1] based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes purporting to explain aspects of a person’s personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the time of their birth. The majority of professional astrologers rely on such systems.
Throughout most of its history, astrology was considered a scholarly tradition. It was accepted in political and academic contexts, and was connected with other studies, such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine.At the end of the 17th century, new scientific concepts in astronomy and physics (such as heliocentrism and Newtonian mechanics) called astrology into question. Astrology thus lost its academic and theoretical standing, and common belief in astrology has largely declined.[4] Astrology has been rejected by the scientific community as a pseudoscience, having no validity or explanatory power for describing the universe. Among other issues, there is no proposed mechanism of action by which the positions and motions of stars and planets could affect people and events on Earth that does not contradict well understood basic aspects of biology and physics.[5]:249[6] Scientific testing of astrology has found no evidence to support any of the premises or purported effects outlined in astrological traditions. In one study, participating astrologers attempting to match natal charts with profiles generated by a psychological inventory produced results not significantly at variance with random chance.
Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, with roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications.[8] A form of astrology was practised in the first dynasty of Mesopotamia (1950–1651 BCE). Chinese astrology was elaborated in the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BCE). Hellenistic astrology after 332 BCE mixed Babylonian astrology with Egyptian Decanic astrology in Alexandria, creating horoscopic astrology. Alexander the Great’s conquest of Asia allowed astrology to spread to Ancient Greece and Rome. In Rome, astrology was associated with Chaldean wisdom. After the conquest of Alexandria in the 7th century, astrology was taken up by Islamic scholars, and Hellenistic texts were translated into Arabic and Persian. In the 12th century, Arabic texts were imported to Europe and translated into Latin, helping to initiate the European Renaissance, when major astronomers including Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler and Galileo practised as court astrologers. Astrological references appear in literature in the works of poets such as Dante Alighieri and Geoffrey Chaucer, and of playwrights such as Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare.

He attended graduate school at the California Institute of Integral Studies, after training in Gestalt and body centered psychotherapy. Paul has a long standing interest in dharma studies and an extensive training practice in the insight meditation tradition visit site.
For the last 20 years he has been guiding meditation groups and residentials. The TsomT system developed as a dynamic synthesis of therapeutic and meditative methods. In combination, the streams that feed this synthesis emerge as an engaged, practical and immediate opportunity for relief from what can be ailing within the human/existential condition, while simultaneously inviting realization of the creative wonder that abides within all that is occuring.
Vipassanā (Pāli) or vipaśyanā (विपश्यना, Sanskrit; Chn. 觀 guān; Tib. ལྷག་མཐོང་, lhaktong; Wyl. lhag mthong) in the Buddhist tradition means insight into the true nature of reality,[1][2] namely as the Three marks of existence: impermanence, suffering or unsatisfactoriness, and the realisation of non-self.


Vipassanā-meditation is a modern Theravada practice, reintroduced by Ledi Sayadaw and Mogok Sayadaw and popularized by Mahasi Sayadaw,[3][4][5] S. N. Goenka and the Vipassana movement, [6] in which mindfulness of breathing and of thoughts, feelings and actions are being used to gain insight in the true nature of reality.

Roger D. Nelson is the director of the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), an international, multi-laboratory collaboration founded in 1997 to study collective consciousness.

From 1980 to 2002, he was Coordinator of Research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University. His professional focus is the study of consciousness and intention and the role of mind in the physical world. His work integrates science and spirituality, including research that is directly focused on numinous communal experiences.
Building on years of laboratory experiments studying the effects of human intention on sensitive engineering equipment, Nelson began using random event generator (REG) technology in the field to study effects of special states of group consciousness. This led to the GCP, a globally distributed network of REGs around the world sending data continuously over the Internet to a server in Princeton, NJ. The network is designed to register indications of a hypothesized global consciousness responding to major world events such as 9/11/2001, the beginnings of war, or New Year’s Eve.
Nelson’s professional degrees are in experimental cognitive psychology. His work in design and analysis is supplemented by a background in physics, statistical methods, and multi-media production. Until his retirement in 2002, he served as the coordinator of experimental work in the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab (PEAR), directed by Robert Jahn in the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, School of Engineering/Applied Science, Princeton University.

His book editing projects include two New York Times bestsellers; Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time (2014), by Brigid Sculte; and Top Secret America (2012), by Dana Priest and William Arkin. As editor of  The Washington Post Magazine, he conceived and edited the story, Fatal Distraction, which was awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. He also  edited  and contributed to Pearls Before Breakfast, which was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. In addition to being an author and editor of narrative journalism, Shroder is one of the foremost editors of humor in the country. He has edited humor columns by Dave Barry, Gene Weingarten and Tony Kornheiser, as well as conceived and launched the internationally syndicated comic strip, Cul de Sac, by Richard Thompson. His latest book, to be published in September, is Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy, and the Power to Heal, a fascinating, transformative look at the therapeutic powers of psychedelic drugs, particularly in the treatment of PTSD, and the past fifty years of scientific, political, and legal controversy they have ignited.



I know how you feel.

I’m sure there are writers who don’t find writing to be a bone-crushing, nausea-inducing festival of self-loathing. I just don’t happen to be one of them. Faced with a blank screen, I am invariably seized with the overwhelming desire to clean out my garage, give myself a root canal — do anything other than write.
The problem seems to be standards. I have some. And I’m terrified I can’t live up to them. Does that sound familiar? I’ve found that to avoid paralysis, I have to begin by telling myself, “Don’t write, just type.”
Because once the story is out there, even in a horrifyingly inarticulate form, the real work can begin. I can see where the words are working, and where they’re not. The ideas that should be in the piece, but aren’t, speak loudly with their silence. The awkward phrases swell up and stink. The good ones hum.
This is the fun part, especially when someone else has done the miserably hard work of writing the first draft. It’s why I’m a good editor, and why I love editing.
And that’s why I can help you, as I’ve helped innumerable writers over 25 years as an author and editor of Pulitzer Prize winning journalism and best-selling books. I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in journalism and fiction, but I’ve also worked with hundreds of regular folks who have never published a word, but had a compelling story to tell. In the end, the most powerful thing I’ve learned is this: it is always about the story.
“Your story.”

XAVIER: Welcome to the human experience podcast, my name is Xavier, and today we have the honor to speak to the great Robert Bruce. Author of Astral Dynamics, who has had a presence on the Internet for a long time. Mr. Bruce thank you for so much for doing this podcast, welcome.
ROBERT BRUCE: Nice to be here mate.
XAVIER: There is a litany of things that I really want to go over with you, but let’s start with something simple. Let’s start with what’s your story? How did you get into this? How did you figure out that you were going to be a astral projector?
ROBERT BRUCE: Well I started after projecting about the age of three or four, years of age. My first experience was I had just dispersed all over, and floated out of my body.
XAVIER: Wow that’s a early. You started when you’re three years old.
ROBERT BRUCE: I think three maybe four, but no older than that. Now I had a, keep in mind here I have an excellent recall of my childhood. My memories go back into my mother’s womb, and just before I actually joined with my mother. Just before I was conceived. So the memories of my childhood are quite strong. Before I asked to astral projected the first time, where I floated out of my body, I had an experience a few weeks earlier probably about two weeks earlier. This was an experience that I’ve had many many times, and I had many times also up until about my mid 20s, to late 20s.
Where I would find myself paralyzed with the type of vibration that is similar to actual projection vibration, which are reasonably comfortable once you get used to them, but this was a vibration that is like … Imagine a vibration which would give you the feeling like, imagine if you chomped into a big piece of aluminum foil. You know that cold shiver you get up and down your spine if you imagine it, it’s sort of like chomping into that or cardboard. It’s a very unpleasant feeling, and I was always paralyzed. I was only a little lad, it was very fear inducing. Just before I had my first astral projection, I had one of these experiences there, and it was always the same. I’m paralyzed, this icky vibration going through me, sort of high-pitched vibration. There was a light coming from above my right shoulder always.
This time I managed to turn around, without physically moving, I now know I was moving within my physical body. It’s my second body or my earthly body that is moving you could call it, and I turned around, it’s like moving through mud, I looked at my shoulder and looked at the light where all this was coming. What I saw there was a large ET, of the tall gray variety. Which had a body like a praying mantis. With the big triangular head, and two big eyes. Do you know [Willie Streenberg 00:04:03] preschool comminion?
XAVIER: Yes.
ROBERT BRUCE: On the cover they got the head of this big triangular head of an ET with big eyes. That was the head-
XAVIER: So you were three years old when this happened?
ROBERT BRUCE: I was about three and a half years of age when this happened, and I looked at this being and this ball of light, which was about the size of a soccer ball, glowing and vibrating. I looked at it just for a couple of seconds, and the being looked at me and noticed I was looking at him. Reached out and tweaked the ball of light, and I was out like a light.
XAVIER: Wow.
ROBERT BRUCE: About two weeks later I had my first astral projection. Were just floated out of my body and I floated feet first like I was still in bed, through my bedroom, down the hallway, down the stairs, and through the house.]]>

Emotional Freedom Techniques With Brad Yates
EFT is a meridian-based energy therapy developed by Gary Craig from the landmark discoveries of Dr. Roger Callahan.

When will you allow yourself:
· More fulfilling relationships

· Better performance (career, sports, academics…)

· Improved health

· More money

· Greater spiritual connection

· More peace and happiness…?


Life operates on the basis of the law of cause and effect. The items
above are all effects — you are the cause. To change the effect, you

must change the cause.
You may have attended tons of seminars, read a million self-help

books—but somehow find yourself unable (unwilling?) to really take

the steps they outline or experience the results they promise.
We are told that we live among “acres of diamonds” – and it’s true.

You have an abundance of wealth and ability at your fingertips.

Unfortunately, limiting fears and beliefs keep your hands tied, such

that those “diamonds” are out of reach. They keep you from having

the successful state of mind necessary to get the results you desire.
Most of these beliefs are unconscious—and very old. They are not

your fault. But—you have the choice to let them go, so that they are

no longer barriers to the abundance of health, wealth and happiness

you so richly deserve.

You would then have the freedom to succeed.

Success is your natural tendency. It is your birthright. What’s offered

here are safe, gentle and effective tools for overcoming the internal

blocks to success. You will not only find yourself enjoying the freedom

to take more positive action in your life, but also enjoy greater health,

wealth, happiness and well-being.
That wouldn’t just be great for you – but think what a difference it

would also make for everyone with whom you come into contact…
Consider the possibilities… by using EFT as a tapping solution for tapping and emtional therapy this is an emotional freedom technique.
