    Neha Sangwan, MD, is the founder and CEO of Intuitive Intelligence and co-founder of the Conscious Business Leadership Academy (CBLA), which partners with CEOs on implementing the principles of Conscious Capitalism in their organizations. She earned a BS in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering from Michigan State University and worked as a manufacturing engineer for Motorola before getting a medical degree from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo.

    Key Takeaways
    Burnout as a Wake-Up Call: Burnout isn’t a personal failure, it’s a wake-up call. Recognize when your personal and professional lives are out of balance due to unsustainable practices like overwork and neglect of health.
    Need for Conscious Upgrading: Upgrade your consciousness to better cope with the modern world's demands. This involves improving our ability to manage stress and enhance our internal resilience through mindfulness and self-awareness.
    Alignment with Biology: We must align our lifestyles and work habits with our biological needs. This includes acknowledging the natural cycles of exertion and rest, which are often ignored in a productivity-focused culture.
    Holistic Approach to Health: Dr. Sangwan advocates for a holistic approach to handling stress and burnout, which includes addressing physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual dimensions. This comprehensive approach ensures that all aspects of an individual's well-being are nurtured.
    Empowering Individual Change: You have the power and ability to manage burnout. Take proactive steps to understand and mitigate your stressors, rather than relying solely on external changes in the workplace or broader economic systems.

    MMA Fighter Turns Humanitarian | Justin Wren on Overcoming Addiction, Depression, and His Mission in Uganda and the Congo

    MMA Fighter Turns Humanitarian | Justin Wren on Overcoming Addiction, Depression, and His Mission in Uganda and the Congo

    Justin Wren is a humanitarian, author, journalist, former MMA fighter, and founder of the Fight for the Forgotten charity. After overcoming depression and addiction early in his MMA career, Justin embarked on a life-changing journey with the Mbuti Pygmy people of the Congo Basin rainforest. Inspired by a transformative vision, he founded Fight for the Forgotten to combat the global water crisis and expand its impact to serve the Batwa Pygmies of Uganda.
     
    Key Takeaways
     
    The Essentials: Personal practices, such as meditation, gratitude, and spending quality time with loved ones, are essential for maintaining a positive mindset and cultivating self-mastery.
    Overcoming Depression and Addiction: Purpose-driven service can be a powerful tool for personal transformation and healing, as demonstrated by Justin's journey from overcoming depression and addiction to founding Fight for the Forgotten.
    Empowering Communities: Providing tools, knowledge, and resources to develop sustainable livelihoods is a more effective approach to creating lasting change than short-term, unsustainable aid.
    Sustainability and Rainforests:  Rainforests play a critical role in maintaining the Earth's ecological balance, and indigenous people, such as the Mbuti Pygmies, are essential stewards of these ecosystems.
    How to Create Lasting Change: Collaboration between nonprofits and NGOs is crucial for creating a more significant impact and addressing complex global challenges, such as the water crisis and the displacement of indigenous communities.
    It All Starts Within: Loving oneself and cultivating self-mastery is essential for being able to serve others effectively and create meaningful change in the world.

    Redefine Your Relationship with Fear with Colt Balok

    Redefine Your Relationship with Fear with Colt Balok

    Colt Balok, born in Tijuana, Mexico, and adopted at age two, grew up in San Diego among thirteen siblings. He moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 2012 and in 2018, launched "The Colt Balok Show," an international talk show with over 1.3 million followers. The show, which Balok hosts and produces, focuses on love and human connection and features a mix of public figures and everyday individuals. Balok serves on the boards of the New Mexico Heart Gallery Foundation and the National Guard Youth Challenge Foundation.
     
    Key Takeaways:
     
    Choice in Perspective: Colt highlights how individuals have the power to choose their perspective and reaction to various life situations. He references a story about a monk who turns a mundane task into a spiritually enriching experience, illustrating that happiness and contentment are often a matter of choice rather than circumstance.
    Therapeutic Value of Mundane Tasks: Seemingly mundane or arduous tasks, such as washing dishes or manual labor, can be therapeutic. These tasks allow for mental relaxation and can be a form of meditative practice, helping individuals find peace in the simplicity of the activity.
    Impact of Attitude on Daily Life: One’s attitude towards everyday tasks can significantly affect one's mental health and happiness. Viewing chores as opportunities for mindfulness and growth rather than burdens can profoundly impact one's quality of life.
    Personal Growth Through Routine Tasks: Routine tasks can contribute to personal growth by fostering patience, resilience, and a positive attitude. This mindset can transform routine or challenging tasks into opportunities for personal development.

    Key Takeaways:
     
    Nurturing the Adaptive Nervous System: The nervous system is a learning technology that wants to learn, grow, evolve, and adapt. By cultivating and nurturing the intelligence and life force within us, we can maximize our health and life potential.
    Prioritizing Growth and Integration: Suffering is optional, and the greatest growth occurs right at the edge of our comfort zone. By prioritizing rest, healing, and integrating our experiences, we can move our nervous system into greater coherence and adapt more effectively.
    Consciousness and Whole Mind: Consciousness streams through our body-mind machines, interacting with matter and the biological intelligence of the body, creating an integrated whole mind that includes the brain, enteric nervous system, gut mind, and heart-mind.
    Expanding Consciousness, Limitless Potential: There are no limitations in matter, only limitations in consciousness. By expanding our consciousness and making the subconscious conscious, we can grow and evolve as human beings.
    Uniqueness, Purpose, and Evolution: Each person is unique and has a distinct purpose to fulfill in this world. By giving our unique verse and song to the world, we can contribute to the evolution of humanity and ourselves.

    How to Heal Your Gut & Fix Your Microbiome with Holistic Nutritionist and Gut Health Expert Josh Dech

    How to Heal Your Gut & Fix Your Microbiome with Holistic Nutritionist and Gut Health Expert Josh Dech

    Josh Dech is a holistic nutritionist and gut health expert whose career began uniquely—as a paramedic in rural Newfoundland. Witnessing the limitations of conventional medicine in fostering genuine health improvement led him to transition into personal training and ultimately to specialize in holistic nutrition. Josh's deep dive into the complexities of gut health has positioned him as a leading voice in understanding its critical role in overall well-being, immune function, and mental health. Through his popular podcast, "Reversible: The Ultimate Gut Health Podcast," he shares cutting-edge insights and practical advice, empowering listeners to take control of their health through the lens of gut wellness.
     
    Key Takeaways:
     
    The Critical Role of Gut Health: Gut health is pivotal for overall well-being, influencing everything from mental health to immune function, and is central to managing physical and psychological conditions effectively.
    Role of Inflammation: Inflammation acts as both a protective and a harmful physiological process within the body, and its dual role in both helping the body heal and potentially leading to chronic health issues when uncontrolled.
    Gut Bacteria and Mental Health: Gut bacteria and mental health are connected. Imbalances in gut microbiota can affect mental health conditions like anxiety and depression due to neurotransmitter interactions.
    The Impact of Lifestyle on Gut Health: Your lifestyle choices impact your gut health. Diet, exercise, and exposure to different environments, can support or hinder gut microbiome balance. 
    Understanding Beneficial Bacteria: Probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics have different roles and impacts in maintaining a balanced gut ecosystem. It’s important to foster beneficial bacterial activities for health.

Mark Divine

This podcast is super informative, Mark brings a wealth of experience, honesty and perspective on how to live a more fulfilled life. I highly recommend the show and all his books which dive into the details.

Epic

Lots of useful stuff. Such a humble cool headed man. Thank you Mark !!

Andrew Jakubiz ,

Great messages - questionable politics.

Very insightful topics , and hard to find the integration of warrior and spiritual development - but the overt political commentary has arrested me in my tracks more than once - literally on long mtn runs and other podcast nonstop events. Clarify your story, you have the authenticity, but why continually reference neoliberal talking points like George Floyd? It’s a loser for anyone pursuing warrior truth to adopt MSM propaganda into that narrative.
