    Finding More Pleasure & Meaning in Life with Dr. Jia Gottlieb, MD

    Finding More Pleasure & Meaning in Life with Dr. Jia Gottlieb, MD

    On this episode of the Psycholopgy Talk Podcast Dr. Hoye interviews Dr. Jia Gottlieb, M.D. about his new book, "Aah…The Pleasure Book."

    Dr. Hoye and Dr. Jia discuss the concept of pleasure from an Epicurean perspective. They dive deep into the issue of pleasure having been placed on the back burner, so to speak, culturally for 1600 years. Dr. Jia spells out how pleasure drives us towards curiosity in life and discovery of the mysteries of the universe. They discuss the neurology of pleasure in the three basic structures of the brain, and how they can be mapped into a four-stage model of pleasure.

    The control of pleasure is all around us: our reward systems of our brains these having been relegated to the click of a mouse of a “like” on social media platforms, and by hierarchical structures misleading us to only find pleasure in endless consumption, monolithic, homogenous cultures, and dogmatic religious structues. How can we salvage and orient ourselves to the practical, Epicurean philosophy of pleasure, and better control our minds and lives through freedom? Listen in to find out.


    Dr. Jia was born to an Austrian Jewish father and Chinese mother and grew up in a white, middle-class suburb outside of Chicago. After graduating from college, he backpacked around the world for a year. During a 12-day trek in the Himalayas, he found his calling as a doctor. He received his MD from Northwestern University, completed his residency in family medicine at the Community Hospital of Sonoma County, California, and then traveled to China, Japan, and India to study acupuncture, martial arts, yoga, and other ancient practices. Shortly after returning to the States, Dr. Gottlieb established Still Mountain Clinic in Boulder, Colorado, where he provided patients a unique therapeutic approach based on his extensive training in both Western medicine and Eastern healing art

Love this Podcast and Dr. Hoye!

Really enjoy listening to this podcast and the insights Dr. Hoye and his guests have to offer. I especially like that they discuss issues that are often overlooked or ignored traditionally. Especially enjoyed the episodes on alternative medicine and inner voice.

FDAbell ,

Interesting show on non-standard issues

I was pleasantly surprised to hear episode 9 and learn about Dr. Cira who advocates for clinicians to be their authentic selves rather than being mysterious which was (is) all too common for therapists.
