Show Notes

About a year ago I had my first therapeutic MDMA session, and one of the biggest gifts that stayed with me is a type of meditation. This is the first time that I talk about this meditation and what it has done for me—and while I found it challenging to articulate this in detail, what does come through in this conversation is how immensely valuable it is, and how it has become a core part of my inner work practice.

041: LSD & Martial arts: Finding my flow in fighting

In this episode, I talk about a breakthrough I've had in my martial arts after a training session on LSD. In my training of martial arts, there are periods where I'm on a very intense schedule, practicing five, six, or even seven days a week. And then there are periods where I train only once or twice a week. And then there are weeks where I don't train at all. And I noticed that oftentimes, when I pick up training again after a couple of weeks of not training at all, I've always leapfrogged to the next level of skill in some area. I discuss this in the first part of the episode, and then later share a major breakthrough I've had in my practice after a shadowboxing session on LSD.

149: All your problems start with a lie (Dostoyevsky's truth)

Nothing in this world is harder than speaking the truth", wrote Dostoyevsky. And the longer I live, the more I realize this to be accurate. So many of life's problems boil down to struggles with truth. It's not just the lies we tell others: It's mostly the lies we tell ourselves, the truths we'd rather avert our eyes from. In short, it's the lies that we don't recognize as such, that often trip us up in life.

074: Are You Fragmented or Fully Present? The Art of Handling Inner Conflict

In this episode, I talk about when parts of myself are at conflict with each other. I'm the type of person that's very good at pushing myself to do things, I've got a strong inner pusher. But there's also a part of me that sometimes just want to relax, take it easy and goof off. That in and of itself is fine—we all have those parts in us. The problem arises when these two parts of myself work against each other. If I want to relax, but my inner pusher keeps screaming at me that I better take care of all these things... well, then I'm neither relaxing, nor doing work: I'm fragmented, not fully present. And that's not how I want to live life: I want to be all-in, fully engaged and present.
