    The Wake-Up Lounge, Italian Dinner Feasts, Travel As Education, "FU" University & Other Massively Important Parenting Principles (Boundless Parenting Book Series)

    Patrick and Laurie Gentempo are dear friends of mine, superstar parents, world-changers, philosophers, entrepreneurs and a featured couple in my upcoming Boundless Parenting book.
    Their parenting habits were incredibly unique, including a "Wakeup Lounge", during which their kids would get up in the morning, come into the family room, sit in a comfy chair or couch with a warm blanket with a log on the fire, meditative music on in the background, incense burning, and a warm drink in hand. It’s an environment of peace and harmony where they start the day together. Sometimes they’ll talk about the day. This goes on for 20-40 minutes, passing from sleep to the waking state, ready to start the day from a harmonious proactive state as compared to jolting into action and flying out the door with stress.
    They believe travel is the best education we can give our children and they have taken their own kids all over the world, based on the idea that experiencing other languages and cultures and landscapes broadens their thinking and actions and bonds a family through having those experiences together.
    The Gentempo's thrive on certain parenting premises, such as...
    No child was ever made good by telling them how bad they are. One of the best things parents can do for their children is love each other. Children learn more by example than by words. How a child starts their day is critical. Family rituals are a building block of a child’s adult life. The most important education a child gets is outside of school. Self-esteem and self-confidence are job one. Integrity must be consistently on display. These are great parents, and we get into these concepts and many others on this podcast.

    Plant Medicines In Religion, "Journeying" Without Drugs, A Medical Use For Entheogens & Much More With "The Christian Psychedelic" Paul Risse.

    Plant Medicines In Religion, "Journeying" Without Drugs, A Medical Use For Entheogens & Much More With "The Christian Psychedelic" Paul Risse.

    Plant medicine, psychedelics, Christianity, spirituality.
    For the past year, I've been engrossed in how those topics fit together, if and how I want to incorporate those practices and concepts into my life, and what I want to share with you if you're also looking to sort through things yourself.
    What has been particularly helpful in this process of thought and study is talking to (and reading books written by) other people who are also on this reflective journey. Paul Risse is one of those people. Paul first joined me on the podcast "The Christian Psychedelic: Should Christians Use Plant Medicines, Is Microdosing (Or Tripping) A Sin, Accessing Spiritual Realms, DMT & Much More With Paul Risse & Ben Greenfield." Today, Paul is back.
    Paul is also the CEO of Cleanse America, where he has led 10,000 people through a cleansing process over two years, writing numerous eBooks, producing videos, and orchestrating each of these cleanses. He built his own house without experience going into the process, and he wrote a book about the journey called "Kinda Tiny Home, An Unorthodox Approach to Building and Owning Your Own Home." 
    Perhaps most relevant to today's show, Paul took psychedelics around 1,000 times over a decade, including DMT, Salvia, 2CB, 2CI, and LSD, though 99% of what he engaged in was mushrooms. Paul recently released a book called "The Psychedelic Christian," which is part art, free verse, poetry, Bible verses, spirit realm exploration, testimony, and Holy Spirit encounters.

    Pharmakia, Plant Medicines, Addiction, Escapism, Ayahuasca, Shamanism & The Problem With The "Noble" Use of DrugS

    Pharmakia, Plant Medicines, Addiction, Escapism, Ayahuasca, Shamanism & The Problem With The "Noble" Use of DrugS

    You probably already know that I've become increasingly disillusioned with the use of plant medicines.
    A key book I read that significantly informed my decisions on this topic was titled Pharmakia: The Biblical View of Drug Use, by Robert Orem. This is a book that I often mention these days when I'm discussing plant medicines (and in my opinion, if you're using or thinking about using plant medicines this is a book you must read). Many people aren't even aware that the Bible refers to drug use (in fact, there are 37 distinct references to drugs in the Bible) but his book is more than just a thorough investigation into what the Bible says about drugs. It is also a powerful, hope-filled message of hope and love, and freedom from addiction for drug users and addicts, or folks who feel like they are heavily attached to or dependent on plant medicines.
    Robert Orem, the author of Pharmakia and my guest on this podcast, is a Christian former drug addict who researched the Bible’s references to drug use for many years. A teacher in jails, treatment centers, schools, and churches, he recently launched In Step Fellowships, a biblical recovery group for all types of addiction.

    The Official Pickleball Podcast: Everything You Need To Know About How To Train, Eat, Recover, Play & Practice The Fastest Growing Sport In The World

    The Official Pickleball Podcast: Everything You Need To Know About How To Train, Eat, Recover, Play & Practice The Fastest Growing Sport In The World

    I recently got into the sport of pickleball. Coming from a competitive tennis background, I wasn't quite sure I was going to love it, especially since my only experience with pickleball until about four months ago was that it is (take no offense) a gentler "old person's" version of tennis.
     
    Holy cow, was I wrong.
     
    In the past several weeks, I've picked up the sport of pickleball and absolutely fallen in love with it, especially since a new place opened just near my house called "The Pickleball Playground". Though doubles have been a fun sport to get away and play with the family for our family recreation time, when it comes to singles, it is the ultimate combination of reaction time, speed, power, mental and physical chess, and just about everything I'm looking for in a "new sport".
     
    Turns out, one of the top singles and doubles pickleball players in the world lives just near my home, and we've recently become acquainted. His name is Tyson McGuffin, and he has a podcast called "The McGuffin Show". Tyson and I decided it would be fun to geek out on this new sport for any listeners out there who want to learn more about pickleball, discover secrets of fitness, nutrition, supplementation, recovery, and more.

    The Intersection Of Energy Medicine, Spirituality, & Shocking Medical, Performance, & Recovery Results

    The Intersection Of Energy Medicine, Spirituality, & Shocking Medical, Performance, & Recovery Results

    I've had plenty of crazy biohacking experiences…
    …and what I did recently with my friend Dr. Jeremy Stich is at the top of the crazy list.
    A former ER physician, Dr. Stich began his healthcare journey in emergency medicine before several personal and familial health-related circumstances led him to seek alternative ways to pursue health. An outside-the-box thinker, Jeremy gained experience in precision genetics, several entrepreneurial endeavors, consulting, wellness technology, Eastern medicine training, and more. Creator of the BioEnergetic Institute and currently serving as the Chief Medical Officer for Ammortal, Inc., Jeremy's treatments are unlike any I've experimented with in the past.
    Before I visited the BioEnergetic Institute in Lexington, Kentucky, Jeremy sent me cryptic texts about what he was building there. When I arrived at the Institute, I walked into the main room to be greeted by Jeremy and a giant device that looked like it was off the deck of Star Trek that blasted the entire space with pulsed electromagnetic energy (I've felt those types of frequencies before with my BioCharger). 
    Jeremy took me into an adjacent room with a crystal ball-like-looking device attached to magnetic foot pads. He hooked me up to the foot pads, handed me the “crystal ball,” had me don headphones and a light-blocking eye mask, put on deep meditative music, and switched the device on.
    As soon as the switch was flipped on, my whole body went to a different planet. I wept and laughed in a trance-like state as the waves circulated through my entire body. After about 40 minute, my body felt like somebody had pressed the reset button on my nervous system. Listeners who pre-purchase the Ammortal Catalyst unit to ship in Q1 2023 receive a $4,400 discount off retail ($10,000 instead of $14,400).
