    #211: Break Free of People-Pleasing and FOMO with Diego Perez

    #210: Is There Life After Death? with Dr. Jim Tucker

    #210: Is There Life After Death? with Dr. Jim Tucker

    Sometimes, we’re led down a path that might surprise us. Our calling in life might end up being completely different than what we expected—it might even challenge our previous beliefs. 
     
    The concept of reincarnation elicits skepticism in many people. Today’s guest on The Dhru Purohit Podcast wasn’t quite a believer himself, until multiple mind-blowing accounts kept showing up in his work. 
     
    Dr. Jim Tucker is the Bonner-Lowry Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia. He is Director of the UVA Division of Perceptual Studies, where he is continuing the work of Ian Stevenson with children who report memories of previous lives. He is the author of Before: Children's Memories of Previous Lives, a new 2-in-1 edition of his books Life Before Life and Return to Life, which together have been translated into twenty languages.
     
    In this episode, we dive into: 
     
    -The story of James Leiniger who remembered being a World War II fighter pilot from a previous life (1:08) 
    -The story of Ryan Hammons who remembered being a Hollywood extra from a previous life (12:25) 
    -The connection between a violent or unnatural death and reincarnation (17:16)
    -The story of a boy who remembered being his paternal grandfather in a past life (20:12)
    -How Dr. Tucker validates the accounts of past lives shared with him (25:51) 
    -The age that past life memories start to surface and when they start to fade (29:21)
    -The average IQ of kids that remember past lives (34:49)
    -Birthmarks and the connection to a past life (36:50)
    -Children’s accounts of the time between death and rebirth (39:48)
    -Advice for parents if their children start talking about a previous life (1:06:52)

    Not all turmeric supplements are created equal. I love taking Turmeric Complex from Paleovalley. It contains organic whole food turmeric, so you get the synergistic effects of all its compounds. It also contains coconut oil and black pepper which have been shown to improve the absorption of those active compounds by 2,000%, plus it includes other natural anti-inflammatories like organic ginger, rosemary, and cloves.

    The Emotions You Resist Will Persist (Minisode #34)

    The Emotions You Resist Will Persist (Minisode #34)

    Most of us try to ignore tough feelings, by pushing them deep down inside or looking for a distraction that makes us feel temporarily better. When we disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.
    On this week’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Joan Rosenberg, a cutting-edge psychologist, innovative thinker, and trainer. She is a two-time TEDx speaker, and the bestselling author of 90 Seconds to a Life you Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience and Authenticity. 
    Dr. Rosenberg shares the eight most influential feelings that people need to work through if they want to find success. All of them are common, everyday reactions to things not turning out the way we want. Our desire to avoid these feelings leads to unresolved issues; Dr. Rosenberg explains why that is so dangerous and how even just 90 seconds of sitting in discomfort can entirely change our capacity to cope.

    How to Live a Life Without Regrets (Minisode #33)

    How to Live a Life Without Regrets (Minisode #33)

    Did you know that 76% of deathbed regrets come down to one thing: living life according to someone else’s vision.
     
    We’re often pressured to pursue dreams that aren’t actually ours. The expectation to become a lawyer, doctor, to follow in the family’s business—or a number of other things—can take us on a path purely focused on making other people happier than ourselves. 
    In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with Ben Nemtin and Chase Jarvis about how to live a life without regrets, and how we can design our lives to fulfill our own dreams through the power of creativity, without getting stuck in the rut of only pleasing the people we love.
     
    Ben Nemtin is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of What Do You Want to Do Before You Die? and a star of MTV’s highest rated show ever on iTunes and Amazon called The Buried Life. As the co-founder of The Buried Life movement, Ben’s message of radical possibility has been featured on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, FOX, and NBC News. President Obama called Ben and The Buried Life “inspiration for a new generation” and Oprah declared their mission “truly inspiring.” 
     
    Chase Jarvis is an award-winning artist, entrepreneur, and one of the most influential photographers of the past decade. He has created campaigns for Apple, Nike, Red Bull and others, was a contributor to the Pulitzer-winning New York Times story Snowfall, and earned an Emmy nomination for his documentary Portrait of a City. He also created Best Camera–the first photo app to share images to social networks, and is the Founder of CreativeLive, where more than 10 million students learn photography, video, design, music, and business from the world’s top creators and entrepreneurs.

    #208: Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That’s Lost Its Mind with Jamie Wheal

    #208: Rethinking God, Sex, and Death in a World That’s Lost Its Mind with Jamie Wheal

    If you’re looking for a way to explore the concept of meaning, how it relates to culture, religion, politics, history, sexuality, dissatisfaction, and so much more, this podcast is for you. 
     
    We’re currently experiencing a crisis of meaning. People and groups are divided, each convinced their way of thinking and their beliefs are the “right” ones. We have a hard time letting multiple things be true at the same time, when in reality they are but all of our realities are different. We get weighed down by the complexities of information overload and experience grief in the process. Since most of us run from bad feelings or simply don’t know how to address them, we go into denial and look for an escape. We end up with more anxiety, more depression, and poorer relationships. 
     
    But this isn’t an unstoppable progression. Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru talks to Jamie Wheal about why it’s so hard to make sense of the world right now and what we can do to help ourselves expand our understanding. They discuss the five key drivers that give us the tools to wake up, grow up, and show up for ourselves. They also talk about how we move from broken to whole, and how we cure isolation with connection.
     
    Jamie is the author of the global bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-nominated Stealing Fire: How Silicon Valley, Navy SEALs and Maverick Scientists are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work. Jamie is an expert in peak performance and leadership, specializing in neuroanthropology––the intersection of culture, biology, and psychology—and the founder of the Flow Genome Project, an international organization dedicated to the research and training of ultimate human performance. 
     
    In this episode, we dive into: 
    -Why we are in a crisis of meaning (3:12)
    -The current culture wars (34:35) 
    -The apocalypse we find ourselves in (1:03:30) 
    -The three things that help us deal with life better (1:06:20)
    -How to be inclusive (1:08:59)
    -Alchemy and personal transformation (1:36:44)
    -Why sexuality can be a powerful gateway into higher consciousness (1:37:43)
    -Orgasms as a treatment for depression (2:00:51) 
    -How music connects us (2:19:52)
    -How to get out of our own way and create greater connection (2:54:30)
