    Donald Robertson On The Making of Verissimus, a Stoic Graphic Novel About Marcus Aurelius

    Donald Robertson On The Making of Verissimus, a Stoic Graphic Novel About Marcus Aurelius

    Order a copy of Verissimus here

    In our 3rd interview with Stoic author, philosopher and cognitive behavioural therapist, Donald Robertson, we discuss his brand new graphic novel, VERISSIMUS. 

    This is the most epic philosophical project that I am aware of to date. 

    If Ridley Scott's Gladiator had a baby with Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, you’d get Verissimus.

    As you’ll hear in this interview, this project was a massive undertaking, taking nearly 3 years to complete. Detailing the life, times, and philosophy of Marcus Aurelius, the book acts as a historically accurate, action-packed entry point into the Stoic landscape.

    In this episode, we cover:
    The process of creating this bookWhy Donald decided to make a graphic novelWhy many Romans actually opposed Marcus AureliusMarcus’ mission to cultivate natural compassion towards all human beings, even his worst enemiesThe absurdity of Stoicism’s most popular criticism Stoicism’s deep influence on early ChristianityThe relationship between intuition and reasonJon’s single favourite chapter on Stoicism

    Cris Beasley – A Grounded Guide to Channelling, Psychedelic Facilitation and Figuring Out What You Are Here to Do (#62)

    Cris Beasley has become a profoundly influential force in my life.
    Her ability to go directly to the places where we are hiding, playing it small, and not owning the raw realities of our human experience is remarkable.
    Her path from the tech world to being CEO of an AI company, to psychedelic facilitator, medicine woman, and oracle creator is as vibrant and rich as her personality.
    Cris has several amazing achievements under her belt:
    Working with Mozilla to shape the open internet.The trials and tribulations of being a CEO.Creating the ‘Cult of Busyness’ immersive workshop experiencePsychedelic facilitation and retreat workCreating the Becoming Dragon oracle deckHer new microdosing experience+ much moreCris is as emotionally attuned as she is wise. As witty as she is serious. It’s been an incredible process to watch her grow, evolve, and continue to execute with a combination of quality, speed, vigour, and grace. 
    Bridging the shamanic and the scientific, the emotional and the intellectual, Cris is a deeply strong, powerful, and loving voice in the space of emotional intelligence, personal healing, and experience design.

    Procrastination Is The Conversation You're Unwilling To Have With Yourself (#61)

    Procrastination Is The Conversation You're Unwilling To Have With Yourself (#61)

    “You can move past these obstacles. You probably relate to them as obstacles right now, but they’re actually a part of the path, right?”
    -Mike Slavin (HEx Podcast #61)


    In today’s solo cast, Mike leads us down a rabbit hole of discombobulate selves, where we find the true source of our procrastinative tendencies.


    He reminds us that we procrastinate, not because we are cursed, but because a part of ourselves doesn’t want us to go where we are trying to go. 


    Resistance is not an external force, but rather a part of YOU that is not yet on board with the mission yet.


    Instead of slaying the procrastodragon, have you tried communicating with it? Listening to it, and harmonizing with it until it shrinks, or joins forces with you, so you can ride it into the ever-expanding horizon of your dreams 🌅


    If you feel like you are being pulled in two directions at the same time, not quite able to actually move in any of them, this one is for you. Enjoy 🙇🏻‍♂️

    Steve Sims – Be You, Be Clear and They Will Come: Straight-Up Marketing Advice From The Real Life Wizard of Oz (#60)

    Steve Sims – Be You, Be Clear and They Will Come: Straight-Up Marketing Advice From The Real Life Wizard of Oz (#60)

    “Here’s the funny thing: when I ask someone to tell me what his or her wildest dream is, they dilute it. Ten times out of ten, people sell themselves short”Steve Sims 
    Our guest on the podcast today should never have been able to succeed in business or in life. Growing up as a bricklayer in London, England, all the odds were against him achieving the kind of outlandish success he’s been able to claim so far, but it’s clear that the universe didn’t expect someone with Steve Sims’ heart, ingenuity, and initiative to appear and to turn traditional forms of networking on their heads. 
    I first came across Steve Sims in his absurdly motivating book, Bluefishing, which tells the story of his company that makes seemingly unreasonable requests come true. The company is called Bluefish, and they’re who you call if you want to sing on stage with Journey, eat dinner in front of Michelangelo’s David, or visit the undersea wreckage of the Titanic. He’s orchestrated all of these experiences for his clients and many more besides. 
    Steve is just an absolute magician when it comes to making the impossible possible, so listen to today’s episode if you’re open to receiving a ton of inspiration to get out there and make big things happen. 
    He teaches that there is a password for every door, a weak spot in every wall, and if we would only stop selling ourselves short and start taking massive action, we might just be able to make that wall come down. 
    Especially important to understand, moreover, is that in today’s business environment, mean guys finish last. A new, longer-term, more generous form of networking is making the old, manipulative kind of networking obsolete, and Steve Sims is helping to lead the way. 
    I hope that you finish this episode just brimming with inspiration and courage, and leave with the understanding that you can get pretty much anything you want in life, so long as you help enough other people get what they want.
    What We Cover: 
    What makes an entrepreneur an entrepreneur?The most important skills for futureproofing yourselfHow to break away from the rest and make yourself memorableWhy being you is the most powerful marketing tactic there isCommunicating your message clearly, without dilutionThe importance of surrounding yourself with people who are further along than youPlease leave a review if you enjoy The HighExistence podcast.

    Jake Kobrin – A Beginner's Masterclass in Magick: How to Manifest Your True Will (#59)

    Jake Kobrin – A Beginner's Masterclass in Magick: How to Manifest Your True Will (#59)

    “Our True Desires are deeply sacred. As sacred as a river, or a volcano, or any other natural process. It’s something separate from egoic desire which is, ‘I want this because I saw it in a commercial', but the exploration of those egoic desires might actually help somebody go towards those things. And so I think our desires are sacred. I think it’s something to listen to as if it is the voice of God.”Jake Kobrin (HEx Podcast #59)
    Magick has always been a concept that I've brushed aside as another overly esoteric, new-age fad that I assumed would reveal itself to be built on faulty foundations if I ever actually decided to dig into it.
    After listening to this episode, I realize that those assumptions couldn't be further from the truth. Magick is thousands of years older than western psychology. Its' roots run deep and its implications far and wide.
    The most controversial magician of the 20th century, Aleister Crowley, defined it as “the science and art of causing change in conformity with our Will”. 

    In other words, this is a long-standing tradition that has mastered the art of manifesting the life that is the fullest and most accurate expression of your innermost being (aka the True Will). As you’ll hear in this episode, there is an endless list of techniques that can aid and accelerate this process. 
    ”If you follow, yeah you can call it whatever you want, some divine intelligence, some deep ancestral wisdom that’s just sown into your DNA, your life will be better than your dreams because man, it’s going to take you on a process. Some of it might be an initiation process, some of it might be really challenging. It might confront you with a lot, but the other side of it is… mind-boggling.”Eric Brown (HEx Podcast #59)
    And that's only one portion of this conversation...
    What We Cover: 
    What it means to be a visionary artist Practical examples of how to use language to shape your realityAn introduction to MagickThe concepts of The True Will and The Great WorkCeremonial Magick as initiatory processesSigil MagickA run through the Magickal toolbox The sacredness of desiresThe refreshing sincerity of sex dungeonsCryptocurrency, NFT's and Virtual RealityDIVE DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE and get 5+ mind-blowing ideas, tools, or quotes sent to you every Wednesday.
