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.

Pamela Pavliscak (pav-li-shock) guides organizations toward emotionally intelligent futures as founder of Change Sciences. Part ethnography, part psychology, part data science, her approach translates future vision into tangible everyday possibilities.

She specializes in emotionally intelligent design and emotion-sensing artificial intelligence. Her research has been featured on CBC's Spark, Salon, and Quartz. Her book, Emotionally Intelligent Design, focuses on how to design a future that has as much EQ as it does IQ.

She teaches at the Pratt Institute School of Information in NYC and has lectured at the Stanford d.School, ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination, University of Washington, and Parsons.

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!"

An accomplished stand-up with three hour-long television specials and late-night appearances, he tours regularly (when we’re not in a pandemic) to sold-out crowds.

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.

Chandresh acknowledges darkness and light, lust and love, rebels and rule makers, and all facets of the human spirit. He’s a modern-age spiritual advisor who encourages people to flourish as their true selves.

Chandresh hails from a lineage of seven generations of Indian spiritual healers and is a disciple of his father, His Holiness Shree Chamunda Swami, who is a universally recognized authority in spiritual healing. 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. Chandresh's experiences lend to his teaching philosophy, which combines ancient wisdom with a modern approach to spirituality.

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.
