Episode Info: #136 My amazing guest this week is Mark Gober with a conversation around consciousness and spiritually that will make you question the world we live in. Mark is an award-winning author as well as a podcast host and international speaker. Mark’s background is in business as a Partner at Sherpa Technology Group in Silicon Valley and previously as an investment banking analyst in New York. But despite being a left-brainer, the universe had different plans for him and guided him towards questioning and researching consciousness and how we understand it. Does our brain create consciousness or is it the other way around? What have near-death experiences taught us? How much do our intentions for our lives actually affects them? Have your ever wondered if there is a purpose to our lives? Does anything we do matter? These are only some of the mind-blowing and deep questions that we answer on this episode, with the help of Mark. This episode really made me think, and I hope it will spark something for you guys as well.
