EP#98 - How Tech is Influencing Our Lives, Part I

May 3, 2019

In this two part series, I had the pleasure of interviewing Robert Plotkin.  Robert talks in depth about technology, how it has become a huge distraction and will share some basic tips on how you can let your tech work for you instead of you always hearing or seeing the next notification that comes on your phone.  We dive into his background in martial arts, mindfulness and talk about the concepts to his Technology for Mindfulness program.  Tune in for more!

Who is Robert Plotkin?

Robert is the Founder of Technology for Mindfulness, a leading blog and Top 40 iTunes podcast on science, technology, and mindfulness.


In his Tap Into Mindfulness program, he teaches people how to be less distracted by their smartphones and how to retake control over their time to be more focused, productive, and creative. His unique approach to technology and mindfulness stems from his combination of expertise in technology (as an MIT-educated computer scientist), decades of experience with Japanese martial arts, and training in Mindfulness- Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).

He has written seven books on the social impact of computer technology, is a co-founder of the Hack Your Mind program at MIT, and the host of the Technology for Mindfulness Podcast.

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.

This is a two-part series as I had the pleasure of interviewing Nick Jankel.  Nick shares his deep insights and wisdom that he wrote about in his book, "Spiritual Atheist."  For me, when I first saw his book, I was very curious to know what it was all about due to the title.  It is a great book and a great interview.

EP#88 - Understanding Life Energy Through Money

EP#88 - Understanding Life Energy Through Money

March 27, 2019

Money is just a means to an object.  It is what gives us more opportunities.  Money is not good nor is it evil.  Money is just LIFE ENERGY.  What does this mean?

Just as we are creators and where we put our energy to, gives LIFE to things, so does money.

Money is what gives life to an organization, an idea, an opportunity, etc.  It is what keeps things alive (company, idea, organization) and what can kill it.  It can instill change and much more.

When and how we use our money determines so many factors in today's world.

Tune into this episode as I share some hardcore truths about money and how to truly create a change, revolution or support something that matters most.  Trust be told, change will NEVER come from a politician.  Transformation can only come from the PEOPLE.  It is the PEOPLE that have the power.  No politician would ever want you to know that.  Corporations attempt to minimize that power as much as possible in order to control or stay alive through the essence of life energy (money).

Tune in for more and be ready to be inspired and empowered!

EP#84 - Stop Giving Your Power Away

EP#84 - Stop Giving Your Power Away

March 12, 2019

How we give our power away in so many ways, today I wanted to share one way on how we do this.  I hear this often and it is one thing that, if you can stop giving your power away, you can use that extra power to align and manifest what it is you desire.  It is what allows you to show up as your best every single day.  

The issue with giving your power away is like using up energy on things that don't empower you but only take from you.  In the long run, it is not sustainable.  You end up in a place where you feel burned out, tired, exhausted, etc.  I have been there too many times.

Until I learned this simple tool, I kept ending up burned out, overwhelmed and exhausted.  

Now, I am at my best about 90+% of the time, each and every day.  Still, have room to grow, but way better off than where I was 5 years, 10 years, even the last couple years of my life.

Tune in for more!
