    How to Change Your Mind with Jon Venus

    How to Change Your Mind with Jon Venus

    There are the alt right xenophobes, the extreme left terrorists, the all-meat eaters, the fruitarians, the violent vegans, and the QAnon followers all trying to convince you they possess the real truth. So who holds the real answers? Nobody.

    True revelation is never at the extremes. The truth lives in the murky middle filled with “yes, but” and and “in my situation…” The truth is filed with nuance, compromise, and it requires that we all embrace a certain degree of ignorance.

    Neurodharma with Rick Hanson

    Meditation can reduce cortisol, increase telomere length, improve concentration, and foster feelings of unity. But it’s also very, very hard to practice consistently. Stillness is a serious challenge. Despite the plethora of books and apps and mindfulness training programs, most of us still talk a good meditation game but fail to back it up with practice.

    The Power of Ritual with Casper Ter Kuile

    After just five swipes of your newsfeed, and you’ll immediately see ideology and groupthink dominate just about every conversation. As the world becomes more and more digital, we’re simultaneously becoming more tribal.

    The negative fallout is obvious, but what about the positives? What about a sense of purpose, belonging, ritual, and community? Can we find deep meaning and connection on our own terms? On this week’s podcast, a Harvard researcher joins me to share his work on ritual and religion.

Wonderful information

Lucas finds the best information to share and inspires me to better myself.
Wonderful information for your mind and body. I’ve taken a few of his online courses as well and each one was extremely beneficial and very informative.

Thank you Lucas

Informative Podcast

Lucas finds a way to boil down the information from his guests so that it is clear and concise. I like the interviews but I have to say I learn more from Lucas than any of his guests. He gets right to the point. I resonate with his words. Well done and always on point.

Thank you Lucas

Lucas Rockwood is the real thing. I love receiving his emails, hearing his podcast, participating in his breathing exercises. I support the tools that he promotes and I am a very happy owner of a yoga trapeze.

The podcast is both informative and uplifting. Thank you Lucas for all that you do! I feel like you’re my own personal teacher/mentor. You always have something new and interesting to hear about and to help others live better lives! Amazing💛
