Nadav Wilf | THE VIBRATION OF LOVE
Nadav Wilf is a spiritual entrepreneur. We met through a mutual friend. He’s worked alongside Peter Diamandis at XPRIZE and HeroX and built his own digital nomad empire. He’s a beautiful soul and it was an honor to have a chance to talk to Nadav about his journey and the lessons he’s learned along the way. We talked about envisioning the future and then taking steps to manifest it, while you continue to believe it is possible. Where do you want to be? How do you want to feel? That’s where your focus should be. Not on the lack, but on the possibility. Nadav teaches the art of "Feeling good as a foundation for success", because feeling good is the goal, and is in fact “success”. We need to have the vibration and feeling of what it would feel like to be “successful”. That’s how we attract that success. "We have to be open to the unknown. I know why I want a thing, but I’m open to how it comes to me.” "I focus on my vibration more than anything else." People asked him when he was going to grow up, get a job, and stop all of the spiritual mumbo jumbo. That would trigger him but when he stayed in the vibration of love, he was able to receive them as love and respond in love. That’s certainly in line with my idea of success. It took time to be grateful for everything, from the sheets and pillows to the people in his life to his breathe, he centered his life around gratitude and doing things that feel good. If he feels bad, he surrenders to it and listens to his body. He asks some vital questions. Can I think a better feeling thought about this? Can I do something that feels better that isn’t about this? Or can I just feel good about feeling bad right now and let it pass through me? We talked about the importance of self love and living as "The Vibration of Love”. Self love starts with forgiveness. We have to start with forgiving ourselves. We have to become better and better at loving ourselves. We have to maintain a practice of attuning our awareness. We have to constantly check in with ourselves and be diligent about being aware. "We win when we’re in the moment.” "Time is made up by humans.” Nadav Wilf I’m grateful there are people like Nadav out there doing meaningful work. He’s an inspiration for all of us. Check out his work. The links are in the list below.

Chris Tuff | The Power of Motivated Millennials
Chris Tuff is the national bestselling author of The Millennial Whisperer. His perspective on millennials, and his ability to understand and inspire them, is what earned him the title. To me, the millennial discussion a is a discussion about the future of humanity. "Millennials aren’t the problem, they just expose the problem.” It’s important that we recognize the value of awareness and the opportunity to innovate, connect, and solve problems more creatively. That’s a gift we need to steward wisely.

Brian Fanzo | The Humanity of Social Media
"Right now, we are demanding authenticity and transparency and every business is in the business of building trust. And trust isn’t built by a logo or technology, it’s built by people. The question now is how do you get in front of other people so you can begin to develop that trust. That’s where digital empathy comes in for me. We have to know who we are, and we have to commit ourselves to listening to and connecting with our audience.” You have to ask yourself, “Does this technology enhance my life?" And that causes us to ask, “What would an improvement to my life actually look like”? It spurs us into complexity, to contemplate how our relationship with technology is influencing what we believe and who we are. And in today’s world, we have more ways to amplify a message than ever before. That’s important to remember, as it eliminates a lot of excuses that have prevented us from being a more connected society, up till now. Yes, social media can create noise, but it can also foster inertia and momentum towards a more deeply connected and harmonized society.

Joshua Spodek | A Values Driven Life
Joshua Spodek is an NYU Professor, TEDx Speaker, best selling author, astrophysicist, and host of the Leadership and the Environment podcast. Josh was on the show two years ago and we’ve become great friends since. With his new book coming out, I wanted to get him back on the show for another interview. In this episode, we talk about what it’s like to truly live by your values, in a way that brings you joy, rather than a feeling of obligation or sacrifice. Josh is a genius when it comes to effective leadership and living an authentic life that brings you, and others, joy. We talk about the fact that most activists and leaders are stuck in the habit of making demands and trying to guilt people into perspective and behavioral change. However, facts and figures don’t usually get people to change. Josh offers some profound advice on how to more effectively incite behavioral change that comes from true desire, rather than a feeling of obligation. Living in harmony with our planet is not an obligation, it’s an opportunity to live a happier, more purposeful and fulfilling life. Decluttering and minimizing and living deliberately isn't about lowering your quality of life, it’s about raising it. It’s widely believed that we must change our mindset in order to change our behavior. However, Josh has found that very often, just changing our behavior can begin to shift our perspective. Experiences are what form our beliefs, so when we have new ones, they affect the way we see the world, and what we believe to be true. We have enough technology and information to heal the planet and live harmoniously with nature. The real question is “will we choose to do it”? What would your life look like if you lived by your deepest values? Four Steps to Living By Your Values Here are Josh’s four steps to living by your values that he shared on the show. Ask yourself the question, "What does the environment mean to you?" Think about the emotions, feelings, etc. that come up with that question. What do you value about the environment around you? Think of something you could do to act on that value. Not the biggest thing, just a simple step that is in line with your values. Once one small thing you could do today? Make it a SMART Goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time Bound) It should be specific, like a type of plastic, or packaging, or something like that. It should have a timeline on it. Create some form of accountability for making it happen. Tell someone what you’re doing and commit to doing it in a specific way in a specific time period. Design your own ways of reminding yourself of your values so you can hold fast to them. There is no greater joy than to give yourself to a purpose greater than yourself that elevates the human experience. It’s only the first stage (5%) of the work that requires the most self-discipline or willpower. But once you experience the benefits of living that way, it transforms into simply continuing to uphold behavior that brings you the most joy. Our best life is available to us any time we want it. We just have to be clear about what we value, and commit ourselves to live by those values. Josh’s incite almost makes it sound easy. And perhaps it truly is.

Frank White | Citizens of the Universe
Frank White is a Space Philosopher, author, and Instructor at the Harvard Extension School. He published the first edition of The Overview Effect in 1987 and I read it about a decade ago. Years later, a short documentary was created, called Overview, to articulate the essence of the book. A few years later they created a full documentary, called Planetary that expanded on the nature and opportunity of the Overview Effect. That book and two films have influenced me profoundly. Frank’s “language” is part of the fabric of my being at this point. That body of work played a major role in inspiring me to create this podcast a few years ago. In late 2016, I contacted Frank through the Harvard website, just to express my gratitude for his influence in my life. A few months later, he responded and said we should chat sometime. We did, and we’ve had a beautiful relationship since. We talk once or twice a month and I’m so grateful to have a friendship like this with one of my heroes. I love Frank’s perspective and his approach to life. His thoughts on us being “citizens of the universe on Spaceship Earth” provide a beautiful investment in our perspective of our place in the universe. He’s helping to create a holistic “space philosophy” so we don’t repeat mistakes we’ve made in past explorations in ways like Columbus and other explorers did. With hindsight from that, we can now be more intentional. I hope you enjoy this heart-open, humanity soaked conversation with Frank White. He’s a true hero with a philosophy that can help us come back into alignment with one another, and our cosmos. Enjoy!

The Meaning of Life
I’ve been writing notes down about this concept for a while. And I’ve been excited to share it with you. It feels like it’s largely the exposé of my full ethos on life. After writing it out and then reviewing it, I realize the weight of what I’ve articulated here. I know this is a pretty heady title. I was actually going to title this, Falling Away From Union, But I figured The Meaning of Life was probably a more effective headline. The following ideas are reflections of my ethos, my perspective, and my journey. It’s personal. And sharing it, for me, is risky. At this point in my life, I’m ok with that. I talk about the importance of authenticity all the time. So here’s me revealing my most personal thoughts about, what I feel is the meaning of life. While in conversation with friends the other day, I worked my way into a point where I said, “wait a minute, I think I actually just figured out what I believe to be the meaning of life”. It’s not every day that happens, so I thought I’d share the thought process with you. In this episode, I discuss: What (not who) is God? What is sin? (or at least what does that Christian reference refer to?) What is the opposite of love? The role of the mind and our thoughts. And… What’s the meaning of life? When we ask the big questions like, “Who and I and why am I here”, we are going to end up in a discussion about “what is love”? I’m excited for you to join me on this journey!

WONDER & NOETICS
Every year I take the months of November and December to deconstruct my identity and my brands and refine and improve them. I always use this time to sort of reinvent myself and get clear about what I want to experience in the next year. I take time to write out my New Years Intentions and I set those intentions every day of that following year. It’s part of my morning and evening routines. I’m grateful for what I experienced last year and eager to experience all the wonder and adventures this next year will bring into my life. This episode is not only the first for this new year, it’s also the launch of the new show brand and format. I explain the reason for the relaunch and what to expect from the new show and a bit about our new and growing community here in San Diego and the more formalized “tribe” that is growing out of that community. I think “wonder is our medicine” and I’m excited to share with you the story behind the new show.

Jared Angaza | Free From Comparison
I’m always looking for patterns and little elements that come up that may need adjustment in my life. If something is out of place, or bringing me down, I want to try and transform it or eliminate it. I want to be deliberate and intentional. Lately, I’ve noticed something. I’ve noticed my feeling of unease and frustration when comparisons start creeping into a conversation. It seems benign at first, or may even go unnoticed. But then it starts to turn into this toxic ooze that permeates the whole conversation. It takes over. It turns the conversation into something that it wasn’t about. It becomes about comparing the thing I was talking about, to something else. That sort of robs us from the ability to appreciate something for what it is on its own. If I observe something and compare it to something else, I have no choice but to judge the situation in order to articulate the comparison. The act of comparing things seems to be a sure way to devalue and degrade something. It’s come up for me a lot, so here are my thoughts on the topic of comparison, and how we might choose a more life-giving path.

Why do we go to therapy? Or a workshop?Or a coach?Or a training? Or a retreat? A core dynamic of these events is accountability. We actually pay for it and sign up for it. And that’s easier to get our heads around if it’s “a professional”. But it’s often hard for us to open ourselves up to accountability from those around us, like friends and family. If I view accountability as nothing more than judgment from others, or unwanted responsibility that makes me uncomfortable, or any other negative perspective, I am rejecting a potentially profound gift or transcendence, and connection, and expansion. I crave accountability. I want that type of community. And I want to also be available to others to keep them accountable in times of need. That’s a humanitarian act I’m happy to engage in. How does accountability feel to you? How do you view it? Do you want it? Do you seek it out? How does the concept affect your perspective? I invite you to share your thoughts in the show notes section of this podcast. I’d love to hear from you. Alright, go out there and get yourself some accountability. It’s a beautiful day to grow and expand!

Sarah Seidelmann | The Wisdom of the Wild Things
After two decades in the study and practice of medicine, Sarah Bamford Seidelmann took a three-month sabbatical to search for a way to FEEL GOOD again. Having witnessed human suffering early in her career, and within her own family, she longed for a way to address more than just the physical needs of her patients and to live in a lighter, more conscious way. Swimming with Elephants tells the eccentric, sometimes poignant, and occasionally hilarious experience of a working mother and wife undergoing a bewildering vocational shift from physician to shamanic healer. During that tumultuous period of answering her call, she met an elephant who would become an important companion on her journey, had bones thrown for her by a shaman in South Africa, danced with sacred stones, and traveled to India for an ancient Hindu pilgrimage, where she received the blessing she had been longing for. Ultimately, she discovers an entirely different kind of healing, one that enables her to help those who are suffering in the way she had always aspired to.

Rachel Lang | The Divine Feminine, Part 1
Rachel Lang is a professionally certified astrologer, healer, and Advanced Psychic Medium. She’s an internationally recognized speaker, workshop host and she offers classes, retreats and meditation groups. Rachel was raised in an “evangelical Catholic” family and received her masters in Theology at Loyola Marymount University. Her Thesis focuses on gender, religion, and justice, and includes research she conducted on the witch trials of the Early Modern Period in Germany. I’ve been wanting to do a podcast series on understanding the dynamics of feminine and masculine energy, and how we can find harmony with these energies in our lives. As both a philanthropist and Brand Architect, I’ve studied social systems, human behavior, and politics extensively. Along the way, I began to recognize the profound role of patriarchy in world history. That led me to studying the potential of matriarchy. The more I’ve studied, the more I’ve begun to believe that matriarchy may be the most viable path towards fostering a harmonious, and close to egalitarian, world. Rachel was the natural pick to guide us through this discussion. Her unique background and studies, her heart for humanity, and her empathic abilities all give her a profound ability to navigate this territory and lead our discussion. This is the first of this series. I don’t know how many we’ll do, but I believe you’ll find this first discussion quite provocative and moving. It was truly an honor to talk with Rachel about feminine energy, masculine energy, patriarchy, matriarchy, world history and where we could be heading as a society. This conversation could fundamentally alter the way you view these energies and political systems. I hope it does. Get ready for a wild journey.
