Portier Supplies — Sacred Psychonautics, the Space Beyond Healing, and Spiritual Business (#50)
Is it possible to bring the level of reverence and integrity that we see in traditional plant medicine ceremonies into our own homes? Koen and Sebastian, the team over at Portier Supplies have created a product that is doing exactly this. "Psychedelics deserve a beautiful place in people’s lives, not shoved in a closet, hidden away somewhere’" — Sebastian from Portier Supplies, HEx Podcast #50 There is a lot of shame that many well-intentioned psychedelic users carry around due to misinformed stigma and misplaced projections.

John Vervaeke 2 – Redesigning Religion, Culture Hacking, and Saving Spirituality (#49)
If you identify as spiritual but not religious, then this one is for you. In our second interview with John Vervaeke, he urges those who have been traversing the spiritual path on their own up until now to come together and join forces: “We need the best wisdom we can come up with. The chances that you’re going to get that on your own are very small.” — John Vervaeke, HEx Podcast #49 What forms as we come together is what John calls, ‘the religion that is not a religion’. If you extracted everything that was valuable from traditional religions and left behind what was constricting and harmful, this is what you would get. “We need to reach deeply into the roots of our traditions in order to grow up into the novelty of the sunlight, if we’re going to grow what we need here.” Why do we need something like this? And how do we begin to build it? Eric and John dive deep into these questions and surface with a stash of nuggets pointing the way to a world of wisdom. What We Cover: Why we need a religion that is not a religion The problems that arise from being ‘spiritual but not religious’ Why it’s not a religion Untangling the supernatural from the spiritual How to build up your own community Metapsychotechnologies for curating ecologies of practice Yoga’s 4 paths to Union as an example of pluralism Western traditions as equally viable paths to wisdom MUCH MORE… Please leave a review if you enjoy The HighExistence podcast.

John Vervaeke — The Meaning Crisis, Stealing the Culture, & Redesigning Religion (#48)
“We need to have a deep dialogue between science and spirituality.” John Vervaeke, HEx Podcast #48 It’s easy to say that science and spirituality are being summoned to sit down together for a deep conversation — but much harder to actually make this happen without things devolving quickly. John Vervaeke has taken it upon himself to come in and, not only translate, but provide an entire vocabulary and grammar for both parties to use to allow for deeper understanding and more nuanced agreements. This is a mammoth task. For this reason, John has an entire 50 episode YouTube series called The Meaning Crisis exploring the past, present, and future of this dynamic between science and spirituality. It is one of the most significant series I’ve seen in a while. If you don’t have 50 hours to spare, fear not, for we have an exhaustive summary of it all for you right here. Originally posted on John’s Youtube channel under the title ‘Best Synoptic Overview of The Meaning Crisis & my Work’, this interview is an action-packed call to arms against the spiritual challenges we are facing today, featuring misunderstood vampires and re-spawning Hydra heads. By giving us a strong foundation to stand on and bringing spirituality back down to earth, John is creating a platform for this crucial merging to take place. “We can go from these being terms that are wrapped in mystique and obscurity to being a realizable continuum that we can start engaging in right now right here.” — John Vervaeke With the groundwork in place, please enjoy this deep dive into the meaning crisis, stealing the culture, and redesigning religion. WHAT WE COVER: An exhaustive summary of The Meaning Crisis John’s own personal meaning crisis and how meaning began to emerge in his life The deep mechanisms underlying downward spirals/addiction Perennial Problems: the eternal spiritual problems of man Jordan Peterson’s role in the reawakening Hamlet as an example of over-self-consciousness The pros and cons of the scientific mindset The 4 ways of knowing Psychotechnologies Strengths and weaknesses of Eastern and Western approaches Ecologies of practices: responses to the Perennial Problems An introduction to the Religion that is not a Religion Serious play as the bridge between two worlds MUCH MORE… Please leave a review if you enjoy The HighExistence podcast.

The Mind Illuminated: The Ultimate Meditation Manuscript (#47)
Have you been struggling to keep a consistent meditation practice? Switching around between different types, trying to find the right one for so long that you eventually forgot why you were even doing it in the first place? This is a common complaint many aspiring meditators face. Without a clear understanding of why we are doing what we are doing and a way to know that we are doing it right, we are destined to fall off track. In comes The Mind Illuminated by Culadasa (John Yates, PhD). The Mind Illuminated is the result of 50,000 hours of meditation and decades of neuroscience study. This book is arguably the clearest, most systematic, and well-researched meditation manual ever written. In this episode of the HighExistence podcast, Jon Brooks and Eric Brown discuss the 6 steps Culadasa recommends in the book to prepare the mind for practice. But these 6 steps, as you'll see, have far reaching applications beyond just meditation. “This stuff is not separate. The lessons you learn in mediation are lessons that apply to life. The stuff going on in your life will carry on into your mediation practice.” — Eric Brown, HEx Podcast #47 IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS: Why you should meditate Culadasa’s 6 steps for preparation for meditation How TMI has impacted not only Eric’s meditation practice, but his life Is enlightenment actually possible? What does it take to get there? Meditation as a tool for tragedy How to find and renew the motivation to do anything The first 3 stages of the meditation journey Meditation as a microcosm for life The importance of posture How showing up is all you need to do The value of taking a moment to clarify intent before starting anything MUCH MORE… (Please remember to leave a review because it helps us improve the podcast!)

Justin Noppé: Success is a Skill That Can Be Trained Like a Muscle (#46)
Learn more about The Ascent here. ~ In the first podcast I did with Justin, we discussed the secret strategies of super-learners. In the follow up YouTube video we dissected the best ways to get the most from the books that you read. In today's episode, my main question was to find out Justin's origin story. I knew that he had suffered from depression as a teen, and also grew up in South Africa, and was curious how he transformed himself from this state to being a nuero-resilience coach and learning expert living out of LA. My hope is that anyone who is struggling with their current living situation or feels burdened with an overactive mind can find great inspiration in Justin's story, and of course... we will learn a lot along the way. IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS: Justin's origins and childhood The issues with the traditional school system Science proven learning strategies The value of learning to think for yourself Justin's experience with life-threatening depression The power of stillness practices How to get over an emotional slump Justin's method for interpreting "negative" feedback MUCH MORE… Please leave a review if you enjoy The HighExistence podcast.

Marie Lou – Plant Diets, Shamanism, & the Nature of Illness (HEx #45)
It’s not every day you sit down with a shaman to explore their life, beliefs, practices, and opinions. But today, we’re doing just that. We have the pleasure of sitting down to talk to our friend Marie Lou of Infinity Retreats. We have worked with Marie Lou and her partner Anke at our Apotheosis Retreats, and it was Marie Lou and Anke who ran the diet that Jon and I discussed in Episode 28. Marie Lou is a true example of where ‘doing the work’ can take you. Through extensive study, diets, and work with the plants, she moves gracefully through the world with the poise and power of someone who walked the path for a long time. But this isn’t just an exploration of her work, we get the opportunity to go into much more with her. And much more ground is covered. This is an up close and intimate look at how one moves down the path from just interested to awakened, what work is required to hold space and conduct ceremonies, and why anyone would do this and what results they can see. It is an exploration into the world of the plants, the nature of reality, and the purpose of the here and now. We are so honoured to bring this to you, and hope that this will be the start of many more conversations to come. If you liked this and want to hear more from Marie Lou + Anke, send us an email or give us a comment to let us know. IN THIS EPISODE: How has the past year with COVID been for you? How do you describe what you do? Exploring Bufo and how to diet the medicine. Understanding diets and how to do the work. How did you get started doing this work? What’s your definition of a shaman? German New Medicine and the nature of illness. Does a shaman still feel fear? Infinity Retreats and the path forward. MUCH MORE… Please leave a review if you enjoy The HighExistence podcast.

The Ascent: How to Make an Income Doing What You Love (HEx Dialogues #8)
The Ascent is the new 8-week online meaningful work mastermind brought to you by HighExistence. The experience is designed for those who have already some understanding of self-improvement and spirituality, and now want to turn their passion into an opportunity to do what they love, get paid for it, and make a dent in the universe. We are bringing together a team of online entrepreneurs and facilitators to walk you through every stage of your own project so you can have the freedom to work from anywhere in the world, doing what makes you feel most alive. It doesn't matter if you want to do online coaching, run a successful blog, start a podcast, or become an artist... This will be your chance to take bold action and radically change your situation with support from the HighExistence team and a small tribe of individuals who will help hold you accountable. Learn more about The Ascent here. In today's Dialogues, I chat with Mike Slavin and Eric Brown about the reason we set out to create The Ascent. We noticed that when we asked people who attended our Apotheosis retreats what they really wanted to do with their lives, almost nobody was actually pursuing their biggest ambitions. Instead, many were settling for local, small self-improvement changes. This approach is definitely useful for some things, like building small habits, but for lifestyle changes and following your bliss, a more nuclear option must be taken. In this episode, we look at some of the traps of thinking small in life, as well as... Why people struggle to do what they love for work The WHY that must come before the HOW Classic self-sabotaging strategies The value of changing your container, not it's contents Downsides of incremental changes How we can live our own Hero's journey What The Ascent involves Way more hidden gems... ;) Please leave a review if you enjoy The HighExistence podcast.

Dan Munro: There Is No Happy Life Without Honesty (HEx #44)
"Are you the same with your best friend as you are with your boss and your mother and the stranger in the bus stop? Are you the same person in all those scenarios? Because if not, you are dishonest. And that's okay. Because, you wanna know who's definitely a dishonest person? Anyone who says that they're an honest person." — Dan Munro "Losing your job is nothing compared to losing your Self." — Dan Munro Today I sit down and chat with Dan Munro about his new book, The Naked Truth. Dan has been on the podcast before where we went deep into Dan's own story with honesty and authenticity and the tactics he uses as a coach to turn people from socially anxious into socially bulletproof. In this episode, we focus specifically on the toxic effects of being dishonest, and the blueprint you need to turn your life around and start being boldly... YOU. In this discussion, we cover: Essentialism and shiny object syndrome Self deception and bias The mixed messages from society on honesty Dan's own story of how dishonesty hurt him The various hidden types of lies The link between shame and dishonesty How to express authentically without harming people The validation addiction detox Why it's good to be disliked Was murderer Chris Watts spurred by dishonesty?

Shadow Work and Self-Improvement Blindspots (HEx Dialogues #7)
Down the Rabbit Hole is your weekly injection of wisdom, wonder, and well being sent straight to your inbox from HighExistence. Each email explores ancient and emerging tools, techniques, and teachers to help you live a more meaningful, adventurous, and ecstatic existence. Sign up here. --- In today's episode, Jon Brooks, Eric Brown, and Mike Slavin discuss how to see through your own blindspots so you can achieve meaningful transformation in areas you were previously avoiding. Those of us interested in personal development, sometimes use it as a form of productive procrastination. We meditate, journal, read, exercise, etc., as a way to avoid doing the thing we REALLY know we need to do... Cleaning our room, having that conversation, paying our bills, working on that project, asking that person out on a date, writing that novel... Real growth lies more in failure and adventure than in the safety of self-care habits. That is what this conversation is all about... We share our deepest insights on personal development after a combined 30 years studying and practicing on the spiritual path. If you enjoyed this episode, why not share it with a friend?

The Intersection of Play, Flow, Social Skills, and Depression (HEx Dialogues #6)
"Craft over status; art over praise." Mike Slavin, HEx Dialogues #6 The core HighExistence team members, Mike Slavin, Eric Brown, and Jon Brooks are back with another roundtable discussion. Lockdown restrictions are easing and it's time to reflect on all the craziness that's been happening in the months prior. Four topics that seemed to interlinked during this prolonged period of social isolation are placed, flow, social skills, and depression. Play is a vital form of expression that helps one keep their sanity, enter into flow state, ward off depression, and bond with others. Social skills are just that, "skills" and the worsen when we are not practicing them. When we are out of practice we struggle to flow and we lack a childlike playfulness. Flow is when the challenge perfectly matches the skill level, and this state is vital for good mental health. Depression has many causes, one of the most common being a build up of stress that overwhelms the system. Such stress can be relieved by play, flow, and social relationships. In this discussion, the team explores the intersection of these topics to spark new ideas and provide guidance on how to make sense of the world. WHAT WE DISCUSS IN THIS EPISODE: The impact of coming out of the Covid lockdown The idea of the upward vs. downward spiral The medicinal power of video games How to use emotional reward to increase productivity How competition can increase bonding The fact that being alive is worth a celebration The Stoic approach to being successful The secret to being a great friend How to handle neediness and rejection TONS MORE...

Jamie Combs – 4Game Dynamics & the Cultural Theory of Everything (#43)
NOTE: Before listening, view the model here: http://www.fourgamestheory.com — — — When I first saw a visual depiction of the 4Game model I was floored. Instantaneously, all of the studying I had done across everything from metaphysics to productivity systems sorted itself into a coherent narrative, a structure where everything fit together. Immediately I knew I wanted to explore this further. To my surprise, there was very little information available! As the trophic cascade of mental imagery and insight continued, I knew this model had the makings of something revolutionary. This was the Cultural Theory of Everything. A model so unwaveringly aesthetic, so deeply comprehensive as to give a shared cultural-cognitive grammar to anyone who was blessed to bear witness to it. The more I dove into the Unified Culture Field Theory, the more I knew the world needed this. This was the foundation for the deep discussion we as a collective need to have. This is the language that unites the masses. From that point, I reached out to the creator Jamie Combs, and this conversation is what emerged as a result. Jamie is a brilliant systems thinker, an intrepid designer and thinker, and I'm extremely excited to be sharing this conversation with you now. What We Cover: An introduction/exploration of the 4Game Model The personal significance of altering your lenses of perception Creating a common cultural language Deep dives into the short, mid, long, and deep game components Cultivating an individual Way of Being Memetically spreading cultural evolution MUCH more...

Part of being of service for the world is being fit for service.

The Drug Bible: How One Man is Saving Lives After Taking 157 Drugs (#41)
Watch interview on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/TI2dA0M1cfk Today, Eric Brown and I sit down and speak to Dominic Milton Trott, the author of The Drug User's Bible. Here are some words from Dominic that really convey the mission behind his book: "The first casualty of war is truth, and the war on drugs is no different. This book is a step to counter this destructive situation. People Are Dying. They are dying because of ignorance: because unremitting propaganda is denying them essential safety information." What Dominic has attempted with The Drug User's Bible has never been done before. Over the course of 8 years, he self-administered over 150 different chemicals and botanicals. For each of these he documented the vital safety data, inclusive of dose thresholds, onset times and duration. In addition, he recorded a trip report: a subjective analysis of his qualitative experience, usually at different time-checks. Amongst the most well known drugs are LSD, xanax, DMT, cocaine, GHB, spice, phenibut, speed, magic mushrooms, cannabis and opium. In this interview we sit down and speak to a man who has taken detailed reports on 157 different drugs. As you might imagine, it has to be heard to be believed.

Jules Evans — Finding a Way Through Spiritual Emergency (#40)
Jules Evans appeared on the podcast last time to discuss his two previous books: Philosophy For Life And Other Dangerous Situations and The Art of Losing Control. In that episode, we talked at length about the benefits of Stoicism, and also where reason-based philosophical frameworks might be lacking if one wishes to experience a rich, integrated human life. We dove into topics like meditation, eastern philosophy, and psychedelics as useful additions in our psychological toolkit. When I asked Jules what he was working on next, he explained that he was in the process of co-editing a book with psychiatry expert Tim Read all about spiritual emergencies. Considering I am involved in the psychedelic and spirituality space, I was surprised to find that I knew very little about this important topic. 30, years ago Stanislav Grof and his wife Christina wrote a book called Spiritual Emergency where they defined this phenomenon as follows: One of the most important implications... is the realization that many of the conditions, which are currently diagnosed as psychotic and indiscriminately treated by suppressive medication, are actually difficult stages of a radical personality transformation and of spiritual opening. If they are correctly understood and supported, these psychospiritual crises can result in emotional and psychosomatic healing, remarkable psychological transformation, and consciousness evolution. With the resurgence of psychedelics and increased popularity of spiritual practices, information on how one might recognise and navigate their way through a spiritual emergency has never been more important. In this episode of the HighExistence Podcast, Jules and I discuss the book he edited on this topic Breaking Open: Finding Your Way Through a Spiritual Emergency. I have read the book, and I can't express how important I found it. If you are in any way interested in pursuing spiritual transformation, this book book is indispensable. To learn more about Breaking Open and the topic of spiritual emergencies, my conversation here with Jules is a perfect place to begin. WHAT WE DISCUSS IN THIS EPISODE: What is a spiritual emergency? Tips for dealing with difficult spiritual experiences The creative process behind the book Breaking Open Jules' own spiritual emergency and ayahuasca experience Useful guidelines for attending psychedelic retreats Psychosis vs. spiritual emergency Psychedelic intergration The usefulness of psychotherapy The dark side of spirituality MUCH MORE...

Richard "Shaky" Shore — On The Art of Coaching and MMA as a Path to Self-Improvement (#39)
To learn more about Richard "Shaky" Shore, Check out the Shake, Rattle, and Roll podcast on Youtube and Spotify --- Today's episode is a very special one for me. I sit down and speak to Richard "Shaky" Shore, Brazilian JiuJitsu black belt, head coach and owner of Shore Mixed Martial Arts (SMMA), and host of the Shake, Rattle, and Roll podcast, where Richard interviews British sporting icons and rising stars, primarily in the MMA scene. What Richard has achieved with SMMA is nothing short of spectacular. Coming from a place in the Welsh valleys where there hasn't historically been a ton of opportunity, he created a mixed martial arts gym before the sport became the mainstream attraction it is now, and has gone on to build a truly state of the art training facility boasting 3 UFC athletes, and many top level pro and amateur MMA fighters. I train at SMMA, and Richard is my Brazilian Jiujitsu coach, so this interview was particularly special for me. I sat down to talk to Richard about martial arts, his own story and personal evolution as a coach, leadership, facing your fears, the attitudes required to be successful at your passions, and much much more.

Adam Strauss — Psychedelics, Psychotherapy, and Healing OCD with Mushrooms (#38)
We're releasing an Accelerated Learning course shortly. If you want to learn more, head over to: https://highexistence.com/learnfast/ — — — After going through the traditional medical paradigm, looking for a solution to treat his debilitating OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) – both medications and therapy were failing him. Left with no viable options, he turned to an unexpected ally — magic mushrooms. Adam's citizen science work with psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) gave him space and the breathing room necessary to make some impressive strides in managing his mental space. The results of his experiments here became the foundation for The Mushroom Cure — a dramatic monologue series that Adam created and performed himself, launching him directly into the psychedelic world and into the public stage here. This is a raw, vulnerable, and real conversation – nothing was left off of the table for discussion. WHAT WE DISCUSS IN THIS EPISODE: The value of humor in deep transformation The harsh reality of living life with mental illness The promise and pitfalls of modern psychotherapy How mushrooms transformed Adams OCD Where do psychedelics fit in modern society? Psychedelic integration and the growth process Understanding identity during times of flux MUCH MORE...

Justin Noppé – Learning Expert Reveals Little Known Reading Hacks (#37)
Sign up here to get early access to The Accelerated Learning Experience with Justin Noppe: https://highexistence.com/learnfast/ To watch the video version of this interview visit: https://youtu.be/Mggo7ayRIdY -- In my first conversation with learning expert Justin Noppé we spent a couple hours going over the ultimate skill... learning. Learning how to learn gives you a meta skill that can be applied to any activity you want to master, from cooking to web development and design to martial arts to music to writing to... well everything else you can think of. Most of the high-level people I've met in my life have a certain confidence that comes from knowing they can do anything they put their mind to. The world becomes you oyster when you can confidently look at any obstacle and confidently proclaim... "I can learn to overcome this challenge." After the podcast aired, I wanted to learn more about Justin's learning process, so I asked him to become my Brazilian JuJitsu learning coach. This may sound a bit crazy since Justin doesn't actually practice this martial art, but if his process worked it should work regardless of the topic being studied. After just a few weeks of working with Justin I started seeing the results, and other people started noticing at the gym too. "How are you getting good so quickly? Last week I was smashing, you and now you're smashing me..." It was at this point I knew we had to share Justin's 5-step learning process with the the HighExistence readers. If you want to learn more about this, watch this two-minute video: https://highexistence.com/learnfast/ In the initial podcast I did with Justin, we talked a little bit about reading books, but I wanted to go much deeper on the topic. So in this episode, Justin and I speak specifically all about optimizing book reading. If you enjoy books or want to get more from the books you're reading, the next 35 minutes could change your life. Okay, so what's inside? WHAT WE DISCUSS IN THIS EPISODE: How to pre-read books The uses and limits of speed-reading The best ways to read for maximum absorption Justin's number one tip when it comes to learning from books When you should read super slow The wisdom of book lists The right way to take notes Vanity metrics when it comes to reading Tons more...
