If you’ve been a long time listener to this show, you’ll know today’s show is a combination of some of my most favorite topics in one episode.
Sam Harris is a neuroscientist, philosopher, and author of five New York Times best sellers, including The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, The Moral Landscape, Free Will, Lying, Waking Up, and Islam and the Future of Tolerance(with Maajid Nawaz). His work covers a wide range of topics from the worlds of neuroscience, moral philosophy, meditation, mindfulness, and rationality with the focus to help us grow an understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
Some topics we dive into:
- The biological functions of fear, how it holds us back, and ways we can over comeit
- How to use mindfulness to shift our mindset to work in our favor
- We talk a little bit about psychedelics and experimenting with opening the mind
- What does it mean to be creative, how to access it, and make it work for us
If you want to hear more from Sam, be sure to check out his popular podcast, Making Sense, and his meditation/mindfulness app Waking Up. In fact, if you want start a daily mindfulness meditation practice, you can try it for free @ https://cr8.lv/wakingup
