A pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence, Paul Levy is a wounded healer in private practice, helping others who are also awakening to the dreamlike nature of reality.

After writing Dispelling Wetiko, Paul became associated with the idea of wetiko. After the publication of The Quantum Revelation, he is now seen as connected with quantum physics. All three aspects - dreams, wetiko and quantum physics are interconnected and complementary facets of a deeper reality into which he is continually deepening his investigation. 

In this interview, we discuss: 

  • the genius power of our creativity when we dispel wetiko
  • how we can integrate Higher Consciousness into the medium of our message
  • how we can dream ourselves awake
  • how synchronicities can snap us out of the collective spell of hypnosis and helplessness

Philip Goff is a philosopher who argues that the traditional approaches of materialism and dualism face insuperable difficulties. Materialism is the view that consciousness can be explained in terms of physical processes in the brain whereas dualism is the view that consciousness is separate from the body and brain. On the basis of this Philip defends a form of panpsychism, the view that consciousness is a fundamental and ubiquitous feature of the physical world. It sounds a bit crazy, but he offers a compelling argument that avoids the difficulties faced by its rivals.

We’re back with the season debut of The Art of Humanity! We have a brand new season that focuses on "Uncertainty" during these...weird times. And what better way to start the season than with a fellow podcast host of a show called..."You Made It Weird!"

This is a solo episode where I’m reflecting on 2019 and realigning with new intentions for 2020.

Instead of a New Year’s resolution, I choose a few words as intentions – and then I apply them to my life. It’s more about how I want to feel instead of goals. When I align in this way, I end up creating more serendipity and ease with my life and business.

Initially bound to the financial world, he attended Zicklin School of Business in New York. Upon graduating, he pursued his passion for unleashing human potential with the help of meditation.

Today I’m joined by someone who aligns with my mission for Higher Consciousness and Utopia, Alexandra Cousins. 

Alex’s passion has always been in health and human optimization. From the age of 5 she was obsessed with finding out what was the source of disease. She grew up believing that so much more was possible for humanity and with a deep innate connection to the Christ Consciousness. Alex’s past is deeply varied -having studied Ayurveda and Yoga in India in her 20s, working in some of the top spas in the world, as well as stints in high fashion, and deep dives into the world of African and South American shamanism.

Looking back, she realizes how her own suffering and illness was the greatest teacher – propelling her to keep pushing the edges to carve a radical new way of being. Her teachings are a very unique amalgamation of shamanism, mysticism, a deep understanding of the human body through her studies of Ayurveda and Natural Hygiene; steeped deeply into Christ consciousness and the knowing, that we as a species are evolving beyond what we ever thought possible.

Everything Alex teaches, she lives -fully without compromise whilst constantly evolving and refining the process. Alex is a true pioneer in her field and has the ability to guide people through massive transformations and healings in the most elegant and deeply authentic way. Her ways are simple -she works totally intuitively and with full presence with the focus of giving her clients a first-hand experience of what it feels like to become the embodiment of their Divine and highest selves.

My guest today aligns with my mission for authenticity and Being Human, Jeff Brown.

Born in Toronto, Canada, Jeff Brown did all the things he was supposed to do to become successful in the eyes of the world. He was on the Dean's Honor List as an undergraduate. He won the Law and Medicine prize in law school. He apprenticed with top criminal lawyer Eddie Greenspan. It had been Brown's lifelong dream to practice criminal law and search for the truth in the courtroom.

But then, on the verge of opening a law practice, he heard a little voice inside telling him to stop, just stop. With great difficulty, he honored this voice and began a heartfelt quest for the truth that lived within him. Although he didn't realize it at the time, Brown was actually questing for his innate image, the essential being that he came into this lifetime to embody. He was searching for his authentic face.

As part of his journey, Brown surrendered to his confusion and explored many possible paths. He studied Bioenergetics and did session work with co-founder Alexander Lowen. He practiced as a body-centered psychotherapist. He completed an MA in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco and co-founded the Open Heart Gang, a benevolent gang with a heartfelt intention. He started his own business and became a successful entrepreneur.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why the inner work is the most important work that he's done 
  • Is spiritual bypassing a necessary part of the process? 
  • Why self-avoidance masquerading as "enlightenment" is causing people to commit suicide

The last time James and I talked on my podcast was four years ago!

James Altucher has started and ran more than 20 companies and is currently an investor in & advisor to over 30, but at one point, James lost everything. In a matter of months, his account drained from $15 million to $143. Depressed and on the floor, James realized that today's standard view of success comes with conditions and the only way to be truly successful and fulfilled is to “Choose Yourself.” Now, James Altucher is a bestselling author, successful entrepreneur, angel investor, chess master, and host of The James Altucher Show podcast.

In this interview, we also discuss: 

• How to get out of your own way and prevent the same failures from happening again 

• The psychological effects of our improved emotional, spiritual and physical health

• How comedy and writing have transferrable skills

We also discuss: 

• An experiment that he did with 50 Shades of Grey called “How to satisfy a billionaire”

• Our shared experience of minimalism/buying/purging and why you should never have a mortgage

• Why the flow state is necessary to be a good writer 

• The deprogramming that’s necessary as an entrepreneur 

• The benefits of having a traditional publisher vs. self-publishing 

Towards the end of this interview, we talk about the brand safety of working with a mainstream publisher - which is something that I’m shooting for right now! My new book is going live with my crowdfunding literary agency, Publishizer.  If you liked my first book, you will LOVE this next one. It’s called Myth, Meaning and Marketing: How the Emotion of Story Creates Your Reality and it’s available for pre-order. I’ll put the link in the show notes.
