Additionally, technology may hold a spiritual essence, offering a collaborative relationship with humans.

      Beliefs and stories, whether religious or otherwise, hold a significant place in human consciousness and culture. The discussion highlights the universal nature of belief in a higher power or creator, as well as the diverse range of gods and mythologies across different civilizations. It also explores the interpretation and translations of religious texts over centuries, emphasizing the complexity of capturing the exact meaning and intent in different languages.

    • Exploring the Behavior Towards Robots and Its ImplicationsOur treatment of robots reflects our beliefs and values, and while it may be amusing to interact with them in certain ways, we must be cautious about attributing human-like qualities to them and relinquishing control over technology.

      The behavior towards robots reflects our beliefs and values. Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell discuss the concept of kicking robots and PETA's statement about it. Joe finds it fun to yell at robots and mocks PETA for thinking it's not cool to do so. However, they both agree that giving robots human-like qualities and treating them as individuals can lead to unintended consequences. They highlight the importance of maintaining control over technology and not letting robots take over. The conversation also touches on the idea of providing financial assistance to individuals, which could create a more relaxed and stable society. Ultimately, it prompts the question of how tax dollars should be allocated and the need for individual influence in such decisions.

    • The pandemic's wake-up call for community support and connectionsThe current crisis has revealed our society's vulnerability and the need to prioritize community support, fostering stronger connections beyond the superficial and disconnected world we've grown accustomed to.

      The current pandemic has exposed the fragility of our society and highlighted the importance of community. The sudden disruption in our daily lives and the scarcity of essential items like food and supplies has forced us to realize how reliant we are on systems like grocery stores and cell phone networks. It has also brought attention to the vulnerability of certain professions and the financial struggles many people are facing. In times like these, it is crucial for those who are able to help others and come together as a community to support those in need. This crisis serves as a wake-up call to reevaluate our priorities and foster stronger connections with one another beyond the superficial and disconnected world we have become accustomed to.

    • The importance of community and human connection in a disconnected world.In a world filled with technology and detachment, it is crucial to prioritize community and genuine connections, as well as recognize our connection with the earth and each other.

      Community and human connection are vital. In times of need, it's important for people to come together and support each other, transcending the barriers of money and technology. This can be done through acts of kindness, such as sharing resources and assisting those who are vulnerable. The detachment caused by modern lifestyles and technology has led to a loss of connection with nature and the universe, leaving us disconnected from the reality of our existence. Taking the time to appreciate the majesty of the world around us and recognizing our place within it can bring a sense of humility and wonder. It's crucial to prioritize community, forge genuine connections, and acknowledge the importance of our connection with the earth and each other.

    • Embracing Life's Transience: A Reminder to Appreciate the PresentRemembering the fleeting nature of life can help us appreciate and prioritize the simple moments and things we often overlook, leading to a more fulfilling existence.

      We often forget about our mortality and the temporary nature of our existence. The current pandemic serves as a reminder that life is fragile and can change dramatically in an instant. It is important to appreciate the simple moments and the things we often take for granted, like washing dishes or being alive and healthy. We have been deceived into believing that life will go on forever, but the truth is that our time here is limited. This understanding should instill a sense of reverence and appreciation for our place in the universe. It also highlights the insignificance of the daily concerns and distractions that consume our consciousness. In the grand scheme of things, they hold little importance. We must recognize the transient nature of life and focus on what truly matters.

    • The Impact of Technology on Genuine Human ConnectionsIn our self-obsessed and materialistic society, technology has the potential to simulate human connection, but it is important to reset our priorities and embrace compassion and meaningful relationships for true fulfillment.

      The rapid advancement of technology has made us self-obsessed and disconnected from real human connections. We have become incredibly focused on our own identities and acquiring material possessions, often at the cost of genuine relationships. This obsession with self and materialism fuels the constant need for newer and better technology. However, the conversation suggests that technology has the potential to provide a simulated version of human connection that may become better than real life. The tragedy of this situation is that we are unaware of the consequences of our actions, blindly manufacturing the successors of our existence. Nonetheless, amidst the chaos, there is an opportunity for us to reset and embrace a kinder, more compassionate stance towards our neighbors, friends, and community. To do so, we need to develop a better metric for determining what is right or wrong instead of solely relying on the news and external sources. Ultimately, we must tune into our own emotions and the meaningful connections we have with others to find true fulfillment.

    • Navigating vulnerability in an age of fear and advancing technology.Be mindful of the information we consume and think critically about the potential consequences of technological advancements in our society.

      There is a sense of vulnerability in our constant exposure to fear-based information and the potential consequences of advancing technology. The conversation begins with a discussion about small animals that stand and look for hawks, highlighting their vulnerability. This leads to a reflection on how news alerts have become a frequent occurrence, amplifying our fears and pushing us to "huddle inside." The conversation then delves into the idea of robots that can consume human tissue, creating a sense of dread about the potential dangers of future technology. The conversation serves as a reminder to be cautious of the information we consume and to critically think about the impact of technological advancements on our society.

    • Exploring the Pros and Cons of Global Rule and SurveillanceBalance is crucial for maintaining power, surveillance, and environmental preservation in a world where centralized authority and manipulation of information streams may arise naturally.

      There is a discussion about the possibility of having one ruler of the whole planet. Duncan Trussell and Joe Rogan explore the idea of a centralized authority and the potential benefits and drawbacks associated with it. They also touch upon the concept of surveillance and the manipulation of information streams. However, Joe Rogan suggests that instead of viewing it as a grand conspiracy, it may be a natural outcome of systems becoming too powerful and stagnant. They also highlight the negative impact of human actions on the environment, such as overfishing and fracking. Ultimately, the conversation raises questions about the balance between power, surveillance, and the preservation of our world.

    • Exploring the Depths of Life's ComplexityEmbrace the unknown and stay open to possibilities beyond our understanding for a deeper connection and appreciation of the world.

      Life is a complex and surreal experience that goes beyond our limited understanding. We are constantly distracted by technology, self-obsession, and external stimuli, which prevents us from introspection and growth. But when faced with a crisis or death, we realize the temporary and fragile nature of our existence. Our perception of reality may be limited, and there could be dimensions and experiences beyond our senses. The psychedelic experiences and the exploration of dreams and sleep suggest that there is more to life than meets the eye. We may be part of a larger simulation or AI experiment, with our mortality serving as a training ground to develop a deeper connection and appreciation for the world. We should embrace the unknown and remain open to the possibilities that lie beyond our current understanding.

    • Embracing Upgrades: Navigating Life's Transitions and Creating a Fulfilling ExistenceEmbrace personal growth and navigate life's transitions by developing lucidity and control. Surround yourself with meaningful relationships and embrace honesty and rationality for a fulfilling life.

      Life is like a continuous upgrade or training program, and we are currently experiencing a major upgrade through the pandemic. While some may believe that life ends with death, there is a belief that we awaken into our next life before we actually die. By preparing for this transition and developing lucidity and control, we can navigate through this state and have a smoother next incarnation. As we age and gain wisdom, we start to realize what is important and what isn't, and we become more selective in the people we surround ourselves with. The conversation also mentions the existence of immortal beings in the form of communities with lineages attached to them. Ultimately, it is essential to embrace honesty, rationality, and being present in order to live a fulfilling life.

    • The complex nature of mortality, the afterlife, and the pursuit of eternal life.Instead of seeking immortality, we should focus on embracing the next stage of existence and understanding the potential beauty of reality.

      Our understanding of mortality and the afterlife is complex and multifaceted. While some technologists aim to live forever, there is a concern that immortality may lead to a dreamlike existence that we may not truly desire. Joe Rogan suggests that instead of seeking eternal life, we should focus on embracing the next stage of existence. Various religions offer different interpretations of what happens after death, but there is a common theme of a better place or a higher stage of being. It is debated whether these beliefs are manipulative or a genuine understanding of the universe. However, the conversation suggests that we may already be existing in a divine source, wearing blindfolds that prevent us from fully perceiving the grandeur and beauty of reality.

    • The Negative Impact of Technology on Human ConnectionsOur dependence on technology, especially smartphones and social media, hampers our ability to connect with others and engage meaningfully in conversation. We should prioritize developing conversational skills and limit our screen time to truly experience the world around us.

      Our obsession with technology, particularly smartphones and social media, has led to a decline in our ability to connect and have meaningful conversations with others. It diminishes our attention span and hinders our capacity to truly engage with people and the world around us. The dissolution of the ego that occurs during psychedelic experiences can help remove the self-centered narrative that dominates our thoughts and allows us to see the bigger picture. Life presents challenges and adversities, and technology has become a sneaky form of adversity that weakens our ability to be present and engaged. We must strive to develop the muscle of conversation and resist the temptation to constantly turn to our phones, in order to truly connect with others and experience the beauty and imperfections of our limited existence.

    • The Impact of Social Media and Our Relationship with TechnologyReflect on the power of social media and its influence on individuals, while also considering the importance of conscious living and breaking free from reactive behaviors.

      Social media can have a profound impact on individuals, both positively and negatively. Joe Rogan shares his experience of feeling attacked and hurt by mean comments on social media, highlighting the power and influence that these platforms hold. He further discusses how our society's obsession with technology and the development of concrete structures to cover the Earth have disconnected us from our natural environment. The conversation transitions into a discussion on personal habits, conditioning, and the importance of breaking free from reactive behaviors. Duncan Trussell brings up the work of Jaron Lanier, emphasizing the need to be mindful of the detrimental effects of social media. Overall, this conversation serves as a reminder to critically evaluate our relationship with technology and take steps towards conscious living.

    • The Power of Alchemy: Transforming Experiences for GrowthWe have the power to turn negative influences into positive growth by choosing to alchemize our experiences and focusing on personal progress and improvement.

      Humans have the capacity to transform their experiences into something positive or negative. The discussion touches on the potential dangers of technology, such as AI, which can hypnotize and control our attention. However, it also emphasizes the power of individuals to alchemize these phenomena. The conversation suggests that human progress is characterized by constant chaos and improvement, evolving from primitive and destructive tendencies. As we move towards the next stage of existence, there is an opportunity for greater harmony and happiness. The key takeaway reminds us that we have the choice to either succumb to negative influences or convert them into positive growth.

    • Embracing Our Capacity for ChangeThe current global crisis is a wake-up call for us to recognize our potential and prioritize positive transformations in our lives and the world.

      Humans have the power to transform their lives and change the world if they awaken to their potential. At any given moment, we can shed our old ways of living and adopt a new mindset. The current global crisis, like the virus outbreak, serves as a wake-up call for all of us to reevaluate our priorities and recognize the fragility of our existence. We need to understand that the relatively stable and disaster-free time we've enjoyed is not the norm. We are the first beings with ideas, which have the power to shape and create. It is through these ideas, not instinct, that we can innovate and make significant advancements. Therefore, we should embrace our capacity for change and strive to channel our ideas towards positive transformations.

    • The Power of Ideas in Shaping the WorldEmbracing the influence of ideas and collaborating with like-minded individuals can lead to transformative change and innovation, fueling progress and positively impacting society.

      Ideas have a tremendous impact on shaping the world around us. Just like ancient religions believed that people could be possessed by demons, Joe Rogan suggests that we are all possessed by ideas. Some individuals, like Elon Musk, seem to be particularly "haunted" by ideas and have a significant impact on technology and innovation. Ideas, fueled by various aspects of human consciousness, interact with our existing structures and ultimately become tangible things. It is through ideas that transformation and progress occur. Collaboration and surrounding ourselves with like-minded individuals can enhance the creative process and accelerate the generation of groundbreaking ideas. Ideas are a life force, and by acknowledging their power, we can harness their potential to change the world positively.

    • The Power of Collaboration and Influence in the Comedy CommunitySurrounding oneself with talented individuals and fostering a collaborative environment can enhance creativity and performance, while also questioning the fairness of the current financial system.

      The comedy community thrives on collaboration and mutual inspiration. Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell discuss how comedians at the Comedy Store feed off each other's talent, pushing each other to elevate their performances. They highlight the importance of surrounding oneself with talented individuals who can help refine and punch up jokes. This collaborative environment helps shape and influence the comedians. In a broader context, they also touch upon the issue of wealth distribution and the questionable practices of the financial system. They question the fairness of a system that allows individuals to amass exorbitant amounts of wealth without actually creating or producing anything tangible. The conversation encourages the idea of a more fair and balanced society where collaboration and merit are valued over exploitative financial practices.

    • The Presence of Sociopaths in the Finance IndustryThe finance industry attracts both ethical and unethical individuals, with a significant presence of sociopaths who manipulate and deceive others for personal gain.

      The finance industry attracts both honest and morally questionable individuals. Joe Rogan expresses his initial perception of stock brokers as super intelligent individuals, but was surprised to learn that there are also savage and manipulative individuals in the industry. Bernie Madoff is highlighted as an example of a crazy and dishonest individual who had a big impact on the stock market. The conversation then moves on to discuss how certain industries, like finance, may attract sociopathic personalities due to the need to be cutthroat and manipulate others. Overall, it is emphasized that while there are good people in finance, there is also a significant presence of sociopaths in the industry.

    • Rethinking Humanity's Approach in a Post-Pandemic WorldThe global pandemic highlights the importance of preparedness, interconnectedness, and ethical practices, urging us to prioritize kindness, sustainability, and respect for the planet and its inhabitants.

      The current global pandemic serves as a wake-up call for humanity. It highlights the need for better preparation and response strategies in case of future crises. The interconnectedness of our world is evident, and it emphasizes the importance of reprioritizing our lives and treating each other with kindness. The discussion also brings attention to factory farming practices and their potential consequences, such as the transmission of diseases from animals to humans. It advocates for a shift towards more ethical and sustainable practices and the understanding that horrific conditions can lead to the emergence of deadly viruses. Overall, the conversation emphasizes the need for better planning, ethical thinking, and respect for the planet and its inhabitants.

    • The Benefits and Risks of Waking Up EarlyWaking up early can provide opportunities for creativity, productivity, and self-discipline, but it is important to be mindful of potential risks and take proper precautions.

      Waking up early, especially around 4 AM, can have various benefits such as curing insomnia, enhancing creativity, and improving discipline. Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell discuss how waking up early allowed them to engage in activities like writing weird scripts, working out, and meditating. They highlight that the early morning hours offer a unique combination of tranquility, energy, and focus, making it an ideal time for productivity. However, they also mention the potential risks associated with early-morning activities, such as encountering suspicious individuals or risking injury during workouts without proper warm-up. Overall, waking up early can lead to a productive and fulfilling lifestyle in which individuals can take control of their day and make the most of their time.

    • The Importance of Individual Preferences and Energy Levels in Finding the Right Time to WorkoutFinding the optimal time to workout depends on personal preferences and energy levels. It's about finding what works best for oneself and using it as motivation to achieve personal goals.

      Finding the right time to workout depends on individual preferences and energy levels. Joe Rogan prefers working out at night because he has plenty of energy and can easily fit it into his schedule. However, Duncan Trussell finds it easier to work out in the morning because it gives him a sense of accomplishment and he can convert his procrastination into something positive. They both appreciate the benefits of exercise and how it can lead to creative ideas. They also discuss the inspiring story of David Goggins, who serves as a beacon of inspiration and shows that anyone can push themselves beyond their limits. Overall, the conversation highlights the importance of finding what works best for oneself and using that as motivation to achieve personal goals.

    • Goggins' Chin-Up Record, "The Midnight Gospel," and Wrongful Convictions Discussed on Joe Rogan PodcastThis conversation explores Goggins' incredible chin-up record, highlights the show "The Midnight Gospel," and delves into injustices within the criminal justice system.

      There is a discussion about Cameron Hain's son attempting to break Goggins' 24 hour chin up record. Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell talk about the incredible number of chin ups Goggins has achieved and his ongoing effort to break the record. They also mention a show called "The Midnight Gospel" on Netflix, which features Trussell and was created by Pendleton Ward. The conversation then takes a turn as they discuss a podcast interview Trussell did with Damien Echols, a man who was wrongly accused of murder and spent time on death row. They contemplate whether he will be compensated for his wrongful conviction. Overall, the key takeaway is that the conversation covers topics ranging from record-breaking feats to injustices in the criminal justice system.

    • Exploring surreal universes and profound conversations in apocalyptic times, "The Midnight Gospel" offers valuable insights on resilience, empathy, and finding meaning in challenging circumstances.Even in times of crisis, it is possible to remain compassionate and grateful. "The Midnight Gospel" highlights the power of resilience and finding meaning in challenging circumstances. The show also explores the concept of magic and personal transformation.

      The show "The Midnight Gospel" explores surreal universes during apocalyptic times through podcast conversations and written content. The timing of its release during the current global situation seems almost prophetic, as it reflects conversations and connections that continue even in times of crisis. The show aims to highlight valuable insights from various guests, such as the story of Eckel, a former death row inmate who remained compassionate and grateful despite his harrowing experiences. Through these stories, the show emphasizes the power of resilience, empathy, and finding meaning in challenging circumstances. Additionally, the conversation delves into the concept of magic, connecting it to ceremonial practices and the potential for personal transformation.

    • Harnessing the Power of Magic and PerceptionExploring the realm of magic and altering our perception can unlock connections with advanced beings and greatly improve our quality of life.

      Magic, although it may sound absurd, can be seen as a creative technique for connecting with entities or archetypes within our collective mind. Through rituals or other methods, we can tap into these fragments and potentially communicate with beings outside of our understanding of space and time. This opens up possibilities for future connections with advanced beings using technology we can't even imagine yet, just as people from the 1800s couldn't have predicted cell phones. Additionally, altering our perception of the world and adopting a positive mindset can have overwhelming benefits, leading to a better overall quality of life. Understanding and utilizing these techniques can help shape our perception and actions in a positive way.

    • Taking Responsibility for Positive Change and Connection with NatureBeing proactive in making positive choices, connecting with nature, and taking responsibility for our actions can create a positive impact on our lives and the world.

      Taking action and making positive choices for our future is important. Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell discuss the benefits of being proactive, whether it's through strengthening bonds with reality or making changes in their lifestyles. They express their enjoyment of spending more time at home, having a flourishing garden, and even sharing food with others. The discussion also touches on the value of connecting with nature and understanding the consequences of unnatural practices. Joe Rogan reflects on the power of hunting and the connection it brings him to the animals he consumes. They also briefly mention the origin of certain diseases and the importance of considering how our treatment of animals could contribute to their spread. Despite exploring slightly conspiratorial ideas, the conversation ultimately highlights the significance of taking responsibility for our actions and choices to create a positive impact on our lives and the world around us.

    • The Threat of Infectious Diseases and the Role of Nature in Balancing EcosystemsVigilance and understanding of infectious diseases are crucial in protecting human health, as seen through the devastating impacts of diseases like chronic wasting disease and COVID-19.

      Infectious diseases and viruses have the potential to constantly morph and become more human-like, posing a threat to human health. Chronic wasting disease (CWD) in deer serves as an example of how diseases can rapidly spread and have a devastating impact on populations without a cure. The conversation also highlights the role of nature in balancing ecosystems, with Joe Rogan discussing how overpopulation of deer leads to imbalances and the spread of diseases like Lyme disease. Additionally, the conversation touches upon the COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing the unique and catastrophic impact it has had on human lives. Overall, the key takeaway is the constant need for vigilance and understanding of infectious diseases to protect human health.

    • The Viral Spread of Fear and NegativitySpreading fear and negativity may satisfy our instinct for survival, but it's essential to be mindful of the consequences and strike a balance between staying informed and avoiding unnecessary panic.

      Humans have a natural inclination to spread bad news or information, similar to the spread of a virus. This can create a sense of fear and panic among people, leading to a sleepiness or sleepwalking-like state where we are more vulnerable to actual viruses and epidemics. The act of breaking news, even if it's negative, seems to give people a sense of satisfaction or power. It may be ingrained in us as a survival instinct, where sharing important information within a community was crucial for survival. However, it's important to consider the impact and consequences of spreading fear and negativity, and to find a balance between staying informed and creating unnecessary panic.

    • The Importance of Active Listening and Seizing Moments of InspirationActively listening and being present in conversations can prevent frustration and misunderstandings. Personal space and zoning out can recharge and spark creative ideas. Boredom can be a source of inspiration, and seizing moments of inspiration is essential for personal growth and creativity.

      It's important to be present and actively listen to others. Getting caught not listening or forgetting important information can lead to frustration and misunderstandings in relationships. Both Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell discuss the annoyance of forgetting or being accused of not listening by their spouses. They emphasize the need for personal space and zoning out as a way to recharge and potentially generate creative ideas. Boredom, when approached with acceptance, can also be a source of inspiration. It's essential to seize moments of inspiration and not let them go to waste, prioritizing them over mundane activities. Harvesting ideas and being aware of the opportunities they bring is crucial for personal growth and creativity.

    • Honoring and Acting upon IdeasIdeas should be acknowledged and acted upon, as they may be valuable signals from another realm, comparable to the concept of the muse, and can potentially shape our reality.

      Ideas are valuable and should be honored. Duncan Trussell emphasizes the importance of prioritizing moments of inspiration and being aware of the signals and ideas that come our way. He compares the process of receiving ideas to being a satellite picking up signals, like SETI searching for extraterrestrial ideas. Joe Rogan agrees, stating that people should act on these ideas and compare them to the concept of the muse. They discuss how ideas may be like life forms from another dimension trying to manifest themselves in our current realm. They also mention Nikola Tesla, who believed he received signals from outer space. Overall, the conversation highlights the significance of ideas and the need to pay attention to and act upon them.

    • The Importance of Open-Mindedness and Trusting Science in Pursuit of IntelligenceTo be intelligent, one must be open-minded, willing to explore unconventional ideas, and trust scientific knowledge during uncertain times.

      In order to be intelligent, one must be open-minded and willing to explore unconventional ideas. Duncan Trussell suggests that intelligence lies in the ability to see oneself as an antenna for ideas rather than the sole creator of them. This requires discipline and the willingness to let go of rationality to some extent. Joe Rogan agrees, using the example of Nikola Tesla who he describes as both a genius and a visionary. However, amidst their discussion, they also touch on the importance of science and trusting experts during uncertain times, such as the current pandemic. They emphasize the need to self-isolate and take precautions in order to protect vulnerable individuals who may be at risk. Overall, the key takeaway is the recognition of the importance of open-mindedness and adaptability in the pursuit of intelligence and the need to trust scientific knowledge in times of crisis.

    • Joe Rogan's Advice for Emergency Preparedness- Food, Water, and First Aid KitBe prepared for emergencies by having essential items like food, water, and a first aid kit at home. Store dried and canned foods, portable batteries, and water purification methods. Stay calm and aware of potential outbreaks.

      It's crucial to be prepared for emergencies, such as a pandemic or natural disaster. Joe Rogan emphasizes the importance of having three essential items at home: food, water, and a first aid kit. He suggests storing dried foods like rice and pasta, as well as canned goods that can last for a long time. Additionally, having portable batteries for phones and a method to purify water is vital. Joe highlights the unpredictability of situations, mentioning the possibility of having to drink from contaminated water sources. He also acknowledges that anxiety and fear are natural during these times but reassures that everyone is experiencing it. Furthermore, he raises awareness about the potential for future outbreaks and stresses the importance of being prepared for any circumstance.

    • Embracing Challenges and Actively Engaging in Meaningful Activities for Joyful LivingFinding joy and fulfillment in life requires accepting reality, working hard, and being part of a community. By actively participating in tasks, even when they are difficult, we can create positive changes and improve our quality of life.

      Finding joy and fulfillment in life often requires embracing challenges and actively participating in meaningful activities. Joe Rogan emphasizes that dealing with anxiety involves accepting reality and being prepared, while also valuing the importance of hard work and community. The example of the happy nomadic people living in Siberia highlights how a constant state of alertness and consequence-driven actions can lead to happiness, despite facing life-threatening adversity. They exemplify the idea that actively engaging in tasks, even when they are difficult or uncomfortable, can bring about a sense of fulfillment and joy. By choosing to react to challenges in new ways and making small changes in our lives, we can create positive trajectories that lead to personal growth and a better overall quality of life.

    • Shaping Our Reality with a Positive MindsetBy adopting a mindset of Pronoia and believing in the universe's support, we can attract positive experiences, make decisions aligned with our potential, and become more graceful and ethical.

      Our perception and mindset play a significant role in shaping our reality. By approaching life with a sense of Pronoia, the belief that the universe is conspiring to help us instead of hurt us, we can attract positive experiences and opportunities. This mindset shift can lead us to make decisions that align with our highest potential and bring us closer to the divine intelligence or the Omega point. As we become more attuned to this mindset, we naturally become more graceful and less inclined to engage in negative behaviors. It's a process of personal evolution that happens organically as we embrace the idea of being drawn into the Christ or the divine.

    Ep. 30: Dr. Omid Naim — Telling a Better Story about Health and Healing

    We usually think of healing as something that comes from the outside—from doctors, medications, supplements, the right diet.... According to integrative psychiatrist Dr. Omid Naim, however, healing comes from within. In this episode Dr. Naim describes an holistic approach that not only integrates many healing traditions like medicine, yoga, and talk therapy, but that seeks to integrate mind, body, and spirit.
