Hack Your Emotions Using Wearable Tech with Scott Donnell

The inspiration for me starting this podcast was really my fascination with biohacking and personal optimization - merging the world of science with the spiritual and cognitive experience. When you hear about the tech that today's guest Scott Donnell is going to speak with us about, you're going to feel like you've stepped into a Star Trek episode. I met Scott during a dinner at the Genius Network annual event back in November, and I was so impressed with some of the projects he was working on. I knew I wanted to have him come speak on my show. Scott is CEO of Hapbee, which is an amazing wearable device. The technology of which comes from over 15 years of research studying molecular actions using some of the most sensitive SQUID, which stands for superconducting quantum interference device, magnetometers in the world. Actually, I was reminded of a discussion I had had on episode 232 with Ariel Garten, who also developed a really interesting wearable device specifically for meditation, called Muse. In this episode, Scott shares the science behind the frequencies that trigger emotional states, the implications of this device for psychology and neuroscience, and where things are headed in terms of wearable tech. So if you geek out about the future, and especially if you love gadgets as much as I do, the future is here. Tune in and check it out.

Optimize Your Memory with Guinness World Record Holder Ron White

I’m sure everyone has probably had the frustrating experience of not being able to remember important things--whether they’re facts, names, or just information that feels like it’s at the tip of your tongue, but somehow it’s inaccessible. My guest today, Ron White, is a two-time national memory champion. He held the record for the fastest to memorize a deck of shuffled cards in only 1 minute and 27 seconds. As a memory expert, Ron has given talks all over the world from Zimbabwe to Milan. He has appeared on Good Morning America, the CBS Evening News, CBS Early Show, FOX, NBC and newspapers across the country from the New York post to the Dallas Morning News. I heard Ron speak recently at a mastermind and I found him so compelling, not just on stage, but in conversation afterwards, that I had to have him on the show! In this episode, he talks with me about how memory works, how to lay the groundwork for actually improving your memory, and devices we can employ to access more of our memory which I found really fascinating and terribly useful, and I think you will too. And now, on with the show!

Optimize Your Listening and Speaking with Julian Treasure

We live in a world where technology, obsession with devices causes us to have shorter and shorter attention spans. And though in school, we teach our kids how to read and write, we don't teach them how to speak and to listen. These are such critical skills to learn because whether it's in your personal life or your professional world, the ability to communicate is at the heart of any relationship. My guest today is author and speaker, Julian Treasure. Julian is a communication visionary who has given multiple TED Talks on this very subject. His books, How to be Heard: Secrets for Powerful Speaking and Listening, and Sound Business, delve into how to speak so that people listen, and how to listen so that people feel heard. Julian is regularly featured in publications like Time Magazine, The Times, The Economist, and the BBC. Julian is also the founder of The Sound Agency, which works with some of the world's biggest brands to improve their sound. He travels the world, training people to listen better, and create healthier sounds. So if any of this resonates with you, hone your listening skills right now because I'm jazzed to say Julian is joining us today for episode number 234. Enjoy.

On the Path of Self-Discovery with Jeff Goins

I'm committed to revealing light in the world in everything I do, including this podcast. I believe revealing light is in large part the reason why I'm here on this earth. But as my guest today, Jeff Goins so aptly puts it, every light casts a shadow. Jeff and I discussed how often we end up chasing the shadows rather than chasing the light. It's easy to focus on your social media persona or keeping up with the neighbors, especially when that new Tesla shows up in their driveway. But are you ignoring the realities of your deeper life or what it truly takes to get that Tesla? Jeff is the bestselling author of five books including the Art of Work and Real Artists Don't Starve. He founded the Tribe Warriors writing community and has an award-winning blog. Jeff opens up about how his personal struggles gave him lessons and leadership. We discussed the shadow monsters of impostor syndrome, shame and trauma. Jeff says you can do really great things while still feeling incomplete. And while every writer can struggle when confronted by that blank page, Jeff's story is both insightful and inspirational. And now on with the show!

On the Path of Self-Discovery with Jeff Goins

Optimize your Meditation with Ariel Garten

I've always considered myself a pragmatic thinker. Breaking down how things work is fun and it makes sense. But on my journey of personal growth, I've had experiences that have challenged my mind to see a greater, more empowering view of life. I traveled to India and had a spiritual awakening. I met my soulmate. I've created a life I truly enjoy. Part of my love for biohacking and personal optimization, is it merges the scientific with the spiritual. My guest for Episode 232, Ariel Garten, has done just that. She's a neuroscientist, psychotherapist, and is the co-founder of Muse, the brain sensing headband that helps you meditate. This episode we discuss her development of Muse and how the device helps you more effectively meditate by keeping you in a state of "focused attention." We discuss the neurological, psychological, and spiritual benefits of meditation. Like past guests Dr. Andrew Hill and Chris Keane, Ariel brings new insights and a few scientific shortcuts to get the most from meditation. So if you are still fairly new to meditative practices or on the path to Divine Oneness, this episode offers a fascinating insight into the deeper neurological processes at work when we meditate. So let's get on with the show.

Release Trauma through TRE with David Berceli

It has become commonplace to talk about being “triggered.” While becoming part of the lexicon, this concept is more than just a buzzword. Acknowledging these emotional triggers provides a greater awareness of how our past can continue to affect us. PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder, doesn’t just affect war heroes and first responders. We’ve all suffered trauma in our childhood, especially if you use the definition of trauma being anything less than nurturing, which I learned from previous guest,Brent Charleton. Traumatic experiences can alter our emotional responses and create problematic neural pathways. Plus, that trauma lives in our bodies as tension and stress. But this trauma doesn’t just cause anxiety and back pain. This trauma can keep our bodies stuck in a suboptimal state. Thankfully, there’s a solution to this, and to tell us all about it, we haveDr. David Bercelijoining us. He’s an international author, presenter, and trainer in the areas of trauma intervention, stress reduction, and resiliency & recovery training. He has lived in war-torn countries and natural disaster zones around the world. And he is the creator of the TRE, or “Tension and Trauma Release Exercises”. TRE releases stress and trauma from the body through exercises that bring balance to the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. If you or someone you love suffers from stress or trauma, you’re going to want to hear what David has to say. Leaving it unmanaged is like driving a car with the emergency brake engaged. So let’s get started!

Release Trauma through TRE with David Berceli

Detoxify Your Brain with Dr. David Perlmutter

Something I learned in my Kabbalah class is when you focus on darkness, you attract more darkness. When you focus on the light, you get more light. Our brains work similarly, in that they have an incredible amount of neuroplasticity that we can literally mold through our daily habits, whether it's our sleeping, eating or consumption habits, we have the power to optimize them for better health and inner peace in our lives. But we don't always make the best lifestyle choices for our future, especially in this day and age of social media addiction, a culture of convenience providing apps that make everything and anything available in an instant and information overload. Our poor eating and sleeping habits affect our prefrontal cortex, which is the area of our brain, which allows us to plan strategically for our future, have more empathy, and think more rationally. A poor lifestyle is fueling poor behavioral patterns, which ultimately lead to a poor state of overall emotional and physical well being. My guest today is Dr. David Perlmutter, a Board Certified neurologist and New York Times bestselling author of the books Brain Wash, Grain Brain, Brain Maker, and more. He serves on the Board of Directors and is a fellow of the American College of Nutrition. He's also a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease and has published extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals. In addition, he is a frequent lecturer at symposia sponsored by institutions such as the World Bank and IMF, Columbia University, Scripps Institute, New York University, and Harvard University. He serves as an Associate Professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Join us as we take a closer look at the human brain and discuss ways you can rewire and reframe your mindset. Whether it's weight loss, work-life balance, or maintaining good relationships, Dr. Perlmutter's expert advice is incredibly valuable, but as he cautions in this episode, only if you take it and run with it.

Become Infinite with Sasha Daygame

A decade ago, I was a train wreck. I was recently divorced. I was socially awkward. I didn’t know how to talk to women. In fact, I was terrified to do so. I looked like a computer nerd who never saw the sun. Yeah, I was downright unattractive. Thankfully, I went through a metamorphosis. And the two men who started me on that path of reinvention were Tony Robbins and Neil Strauss. How I got from there to where I am now was no small feat. Initially it was about mindset, then it was about physical transformation, but ultimately it was about spiritual growth. To say I am unrecognizable from my former self would be a huge understatement. So how does one go from socially awkward to awakened? Well, today’s guest is going to illuminate that for us. His insights just might change your life as they have with his students and clients. Sasha Daygame is a visionary, renegade dating coach, and spiritual seeker. ​Sasha is also the founder of the Infinite Man Summit. He began as a standup comedian at the age of 17 and several years later got into self-improvement. In 2008, he started Sasha Dating Systems to help men overcome their anxiety, improve their charisma, and form fulfilling personal relationships. He has personally coached thousands of men across five continents, as well as creating a cult following via his YouTube channel with over 12 million views. ​More than just dating, Sasha’s teachings inspire men to create extraordinary lives by challenging societal and parental programming. In this episode, he and I talk about how you can break out of the matrix and start living powerfully and consciously. On with the show!
