Rajshree Patel is mind and meditation expert and an international self-awareness coach, teacher, and speaker. She has taught hundreds of thousands of people in more than 35 countries the power of meditation, mindfulness, breath work, and other ancient tools for accessing the innate source of energy, creativity, and fulfillment within. 

Born in Uganda and raised between rural India and New York City, Patel was working as a prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney's office and the Los Angeles District Attorney's office when a chance meeting with the renowned spiritual master Sri Sri Ravi Shankar changed her life. She left the practice of criminal law to explore the power of universal laws.

Through her unique blend of intuition, humor, and ancient techniques, Patel has guided government leaders, families, Oscar-winning filmmakers, Fortune 500 executives, and individuals from all walks of life in understanding how the mind works, how to let go of stress, and how to be more resilient and fulfilled in their personal and professional lives.

EP#115 - Fake It Until You Make It

EP#115 - Fake It Until You Make It

July 23, 2019

A phrase that I have heard since I started in buisness, "Fake it until you make it."  

Is this effective?  Is it being authentic?

In an era where human consciousness is evolving and upgrading to new levels never experienced on this planet, one of the biggest factors that is playing a huge role is authenticity and being true to others.

 

In this episode, I share the power of not faking it until you make it and share concepts that you can adapt and realize the power of who you truly are that will help you evolve to new levels.

Many individuals in life have different sides to them.  When they are with their friends, they are one person.  When they are in business or at the office, they are another person.  When they are with family, they are another person.  When they are with themselves, they are another person.

Who truly are you when you don't show up as YOU with all aspects of your life?

Tune in for more!

EP#91 - The Practicality of Being a Spiritual Atheist - Part II

EP#91 - The Practicality of Being a Spiritual Atheist - Part II

April 5, 2019

Here is the part II series with Nick Jankel as we dive into the practicality of being a spiritual atheist.  In part I, we discussed the ins and outs of the philosophy and aspects to spiritual atheism but part II puts it all into action.  Tune in below.

Who is Nick Jankel?

Nick Jankel has lectured at Yale & Oxford, advised the Prime Minister at No.10 Downing Street, been invited to Science FOO Camp run by Google and Nature Journal, contributed to The Economist and The Guardian, the BBC World Service (on the subject of Artificial Intelligence) and presented at The Science Of Consciousness conference.  He can inspire your listeners with his fresh ideas on science and engage them with his playful and warm manner as he shares profound thoughts in purposefully accessible ways. We are currently launching his new book Spiritual Atheist, which has been the #1 New Release for 5 weeks on Amazon!

A Cambridge-educated scientist and historian of science (receiving a Triple 1st), Nick was unable to find lasting happiness with either religion or reason (nor through pills, therapy, partying, wealth, success, or entrepreneurship either). Even though he was, and still is, a militant atheist, he finally discovered the life-changing benefits of ‘spiritual’ enlightenment. But allergic to ‘woo-woo’ weirdness he has spent years meticulously joining the dots between the scientific traditions and the wisdom traditions to form a rigorous life philosophy for the 25% of the USA and UK who say they are ‘spiritual but not religious’. 

In his new book, Spiritual Atheist, Nick risks his reputation as a top advisor to leaders in companies like HSBC and to the UK and US government, by laying out this new life philosophy. He explains the genius of the scientific method for creating firm knowledge about our material world while suggesting that it was never designed to create firm and predictable knowledge about our inner world - our consciousness.

Nick believes that the modern scientific project will fail until it fully accounts for our conscious experiences - the “secondary properties” that scientists from Galileo to Daniel Dennett have discounted as not really real. He goes further to suggest that science - especially the science of human beings - has reached a dead end and must have a quantum-style paradigm shift at its heart to account for an increasing number of ‘uncanny’ phenomenon that it cannot explain: from the placebo effect to embodied cognition to near-death experiences, all empirically verified.

Nick’s ideas follows in the footsteps of titans of philosophy like Plato, Nietzsche, William James, and Alfred North Whitehead.  He draws on the ideas of modern thought leaders like Pierre Hadot, Charles Taylor, Thomas Kuhn, Bertrand Russell, Michel Foucault, Galen Strawson; and is inspired by the work of cutting-edge scientists like Rex Jung, Robin Carhart-Harris, Christoph Koch, and David Bohm.
