#74 – How To Have Deeper, Fulfilling, and Longer Lasting Relationships w/ Dr. Megan Kaden

Dr. Megan Kaden is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in couples and individuals working on their relationships. She's also developed a digital course, with yours truly, called The Art and Science of Connection. This episode is so exciting to me because we discuss elements of neurobiology, causes for relationship failures (with others or yourself), how our system handles emotions, and so much more. This is a MUST listen for anyone who wants to be more connected in their day to day interactions with friends, clients, co-workers,  family, and most importantly - yourself. Read More

Connection Between Flow States and Suffering

This week I talk about some of Steven Kotler’s work regarding flow states and how it connects for me with training, podcasting, coaching, and beyond. What also sparked this episode was my conversation with Dr. Galpin discussing some of the pearls from his new book, Unplugged.

You’ll get my thoughts on a snippet of this conversation regarding the concept of eliminating stress through technology and the 30,000 ft view of how this impacts our physiology. Not only am I excited to air the full episode in a few weeks, but I’m looking forward to the message of Unplugged reaching more people.

If the concepts in the book sit well with you, the BEST compliment you can give to help support Dr. Galpin and Brian Mackenzie’s new piece of art right now is to leave a review on Amazon. It’s funny how sometimes this plays an even bigger role to spread the message at times than the overall sales of the book.

So if you appreciate this mind expanding body of work that these gentlemen have poured their energy into, help support it by taking a few minutes to leave your thoughts.
