#122: Digital Nomad, Self-actualization, Chinese Buddhism and Love with Allison Wang

My guest today is Allison Wang. She is a founder of a yoga brand, Awake. She is currently living a digital nomad life and writing a blog, and running a podcast channel. Allison and I used to be online friends, but we finally met in Madeira and recorded this podcast sitting in front of the Atlantic Ocean. The sound quality might not be perfect, but you’ll be able to hear the sound of waves and feel the zen vibes while we were talking about meditation, self-realisation and love. We discussed: Our random meetup in Madeira and some highlights at this digital nomad village. How to support yourself while living a digital nomad life? The journey of becoming a content creator Why the late 20s is the most painful period for the majority of people? Why do people never get satisfied even though they’ve achieved so-called successful life? Which four parts contribute to Self-actualization? Brief intro of Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi and Daoism What Chinese writer Su Shi taught us about life? How did early Chinese education on reciting poetry help us understand life better? The experience of egoless, can we hold this status forever? Why is love inconsistent, and how do you know he/she is your soulmate? Is there a cure for our modern loneliness?
