The vision is that their teachings can find a place in your tool box, to help you navigate the unique challenges and opportunities of 21st century living. Peak Mind is a new kind of platform, with the committed aim of providing you with the cutting edge tools and next level wisdom to help unlock your full potential.

Fantastic podcast! Michael integrates the scientific and holistic seamlessly along with a wonderful cultural, poetic, micro and macro perspective of well-being and our shared humanity. This show is a remarkable influence and leads me to live an inspired, authentic life. Grateful to have discovered Peak Mind!
Consistently inspiring and thought-provoking
Following my initial introduction to the Peak Mind podcast, i pretty much immediately started digging into the archives and have now listened to well over half of the episodes. I naturally gravitate toward long form interviews but am admittedly impatient with many hosts as they can frequently lack what it takes to keep my interest, but that hasn’t been a concern with Peak Mind. Not only are the guests consistently fascinating, but Michael is an incredibly adept interviewer, providing both interesting questions as well as valuable contextual information from his own experience that brings out some truly nuanced and compelling conversations that you simply won’t find on many comparable programs.

Thank you for doing what you do. Looking forward to listening many more podcasts from you.
