"Educating yourself can really help with finding your why and sticking to it" I LOVE reconnecting with former clients and Greta Heckmann is no exception. Greta's vegan transition was fueled by learning more and more about factory farming and really struggling with the cruelty of the system. She was also diagnosed with high-cholesterol even as a vegetarian. She did not want to end up on blood pressure and cholesterol medication like other family members so that in conjunction with the ethical portion was all the motivation she needed go plant-based for good.

- Amazon has eclipsed Walmart to become the world's largest retail seller outside China. Propelled in part by surging demand during the pandemic, people spent more than $610 billion on Amazon over the 12 months ending in June. Walmart on Tuesday posted sales of $566 billion for the 12 months ending in July. Alibaba, the giant online Chinese retailer, is the world's top seller. Neither Amazon nor Walmart is a dominant player in China. - Two-thirds of Americans are obsessive about one thing in particular in their homes — their spot on the sofa. A new survey finds that 66 percent admit to having unofficial assigned seating throughout their homes. Americans are so loyal to their favorite spots, that they'll argue with another family member about sitting in their “spot” twice a month. Whether it's at the kitchen table, dad's recliner, or the family couch — 68 percent of respondents say they're very passionate about their “spot.” Did you know your brain boots up in the morning just like a computer? As we yawn and open our eyes the brain stem sends little puffs of nitric oxide to another part of the brain, the thalamus, which then directs it elsewhere. Like a computer booting up its operating system before running more complicated programs, the nitric oxide triggers certain functions that set the stage for more complex brain operations. … A study says these first moments of the day, sensory information floods the system — the bright sunlight coming through the curtains, the time on the screeching alarm clock — and all of it needs to be processed and organized, so the brain can understand its surroundings and begin to perform more complex tasks. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: NEW IOWA SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT SORRY FOR PLAGIARIZING LETTER _ A new Iowa schools superintendent is apologizing for plagiarizing parts of a welcome letter she sent to district families. Dr. Christine Trujillo, who recently started as superintendent of public schools in Gilbert, Iowa, admitted that her August 10 back-to-school letter was copied from a 2017 letter by the superintendent of a school district in New York. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: MAN TOSSES BEER BOTTLE OUT WINDOW, LIES ABOUT IT, ADMITS IT _ Nashville police say a 33-year-old man was driving 83 in a 55 Friday evening when he suddenly crossed four lanes of traffic while merging from one interstate to another. As an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop, the man reportedly tossed a beer bottle out the window. He denied it, then eventually admitted it. He asked for a lawyer but then continued telling the officer about his impairment and intoxication. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: WOMAN WHO WON'T STOP FEEDING COYOTES BY HAND _ San Francisco authorities are looking a woman caught on camera feeding raw meat to coyotes — by hand. Animal Control officials turned to social media for help identifying her. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: COP HOPS ON KID'S BIKE TO PURSUE SUSPECT _ In Germany, cops got their car got stuck on a narrow path while pursuing a moped-riding suspect. Rather than give up, one of the officers jumped on a child's bike and successfully chased down and arrested the man. WACKY-BUT-TRUE: FIRE DEPARTMENT RESCUES DOG FROM COUCH _ You've heard of firefighters helping cats stuck up a tree, but what about a dog stuck in a couch? The fire department in Essex Junction, Vermont, responded to that situation last week. According to a Facebook post, a medium-sized dog got trapped under a couch and its leg was being wedged by a metal part. The couch could not be moved without further hurting the pup, so firefighters got to work. For about 30 minutes, they used many tools to disassemble the metal parts of the couch. Finally, they were able to get the dog's leg free. It was taken to the vet for a cut. The whole thing took about 45 minutes. ✓ 100 people a year choke to death on Pens. ✓ As many as 720,000 bottles of Tabasco sauce are produced daily on Avery Island, Louisiana.

Lolo Jones is one of only a few Olympic athletes who has competed in both the Summer and Winter Games. She started out racing in track and field but suffered a crushing loss in the 2008 Olympics. Jones later turned to bobsledding and won't be competing in Tokyo this year. Instead, she's currently training to qualify for the Winter Games in 2022. Sports Illustrated recently featured a profile of Lolo Jones written by Julie Kliegman. The piece looks at the ways Jones has used her setbacks as fuel to pivot and redefine success for herself. It also covers how the athlete has suffered intense media scrutiny throughout her career. Kliegman's article, called “Lolo Jones's Eternal Reinvention,” is available to read (and listen to) in Apple News+. Jones joined Apple News Today's In Conversation to discuss the Tokyo Games, her struggles with mental health, and her experiences appearing on reality TV.

The NBA Conference Finals are heating up - especially for Khris Middleton, whose surge helped the Bucks come back to rout the Hawks 113-102, and they lead the series 2-1. The Hawks led for almost the entire game thanks to Trae Young, who got injured during the game but returned. And in the west, the Phoenix Suns are one win away from their first NBA Finals appearance since 1993. Propelled by veteran Chris Paul and young star Devin Booker, the Suns held a comfortable lead in Saturday's Game 4, until the final minutes when the Clippers closed the gap and nearly held the lead. Then, a bizarre final minute...but the Suns held on to take a 3-1 lead. Sarah Spain and Brian Windhorst unpack the Conference Finals action.
Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast Notes Key Takeaways Human beings crave spiritual connection and states that allow them to be closer to higher power or GodPsychedelics rid people of the need to have everything be explainable and instead opens the mind and body to a higher beingMicrodosing does not just mean you take LSD twice a week and see what happens – integration, context, supporting modalities, and goal matterSetting of psychedelic use matters tremendously because you are suggestible to whatever is coming in so need to be connected to something divine and pure instead of a pretend-guru taking advantage of a situationPsychedelics can help us develop an intuition about what is good for us and live as a freer selfYou can calibrate micro-dosing for nonmedical use depending on what state you are trying to achieve such as flow, mediation, ritual, performance, etc.Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgBenGreenfieldFitness.com/paulaustin Paul F. Austin is a pioneer in the 21st century responsible use of psychedelics for healing, leadership and personal transformation. He has been featured in BBC, Forbes, and Rolling Stone for his accomplishments in entrepreneurship regarding social awareness towards the benefits of microdosing psychedelics. Paul is the author of the book “Microdosing Psychedelics: A Practical Guide to Upgrade Your Life” and the founder of two companies in the emerging psychedelic space, Third Wave and Synthesis. It all started with his personal 7-month microdosing protocol, through it Paul experienced the tangible benefits of microdosing LSD, including an acceleration of learning ability, easier access to flow states, and an improved sense of presence. His experience with microdosing inspired him to push for legitimizing psychedelic substances via the topic of microdosing. Most importantly, intentional psychedelic use helped him to further uncover his own truth, enabling an alignment of purpose and mission with contribution to community and society. Paul's unconventional path has now placed him in a position to serve the lives of many millions through psychedelic education and literacy. Two companies have been borne of Paul's mission: Third Wave and Synthesis. This led him to create “Third Wave” which explores pragmatic ways to change the cultural conversation around psychedelics, focusing on the intersection of science, psychedelics, and self-actualization. Within Third Wave, Paul leads his team in building an educational platform to ensure psychedelic substances become responsibly integrated into our metamodern cultural framework. Currently, Third Wave offers long-form psychedelic guides, online training focused on the skill of microdosing psychedelics, and an industry-best network of clinics and retreat providers, creating a space for individuals to come fully into their own agency, power, and autonomy. In 2018, he co-founded Synthesis, and led several high-dose psilocybin truffle retreats, leading branding, marketing, and public relations before stepping back to focus on Third Wave full-time. Setting off at the age of 21 from West Michigan, Paul lived in five countries and traveled to 60+ over the span of six years before moving to New York City in August 2017. Propelled by an insatiable curiosity for the unknown, Paul's travels led to an incredible expansion of being and growth, setting the stage for his professional career in psychedelic leadership and advocacy. Paul is often seeking balance between city and countryside: the unrelenting energy of big city life pared with the tranquility of nature. When not working, he loves to read, camp, drink espresso, steam himself silly in eucalyptus, and laugh at the irony of life. Third Wave began in 2015, with an intent of changing the cultural conversation around psychedelics. They offer free education, paid online courses, and peak performance coaching. Paul's work there has been featured in the BBC, Forbes, and Rolling Stone. Synthesis is a legal psilocybin retreat outside of Amsterdam. For many clients, attending Synthesis is a profound and meaningful experience, one that leads to improved well-being and significant clarity on purpose and direction. Outside of Paul's entrepreneurial endeavors, he speaks about the intersection of psychedelics, personal transformation, and professional success.

In this episode, guest host and award-winning author Heather Bell Adams interviews Ron Rash, aptly called by The New York Times “one of the great American authors at work today.” His latest book is “In The Valley, ” named a Garden & Gun and Atlanta Journal Constitution best book of the year and Winner of the 2020 Thomas Robinson Prize for Southern Literature. “In the Valley” is a collection of ten searing stories and the return of the villainess who propelled Serena to national acclaim, in a long-awaited novella. The story “Baptism” was chosen for inclusion in The Best American Short Stories 2018, and “Neighbors” was selected by Jonathan Lethem for The Best American Mystery Stories 2019. Ron Rash has long been a revered presence in the landscape of American letters. A virtuosic novelist, poet, and story writer, he evokes the beauty and brutality of the land, the relentless tension between past and present, and the unquenchable human desire to be a little bit better than circumstances would seem to allow (to paraphrase Faulkner).

Check the website here: http://enlites.com/ Dr. Andreas Elpidorou is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Louisville. He specializes in the philosophical study of the mind and has published extensively on the nature of emotions (especially, boredom), consciousness, and cognition. He is best known for his work on the function and value of boredom. He is the co-author of Consciousness and Physicalism: A Defense of a Research Program (Routledge, 2018), the co-editor of Philosophy of Mind and Phenomenology: Conceptual and Empirical Approaches (Routledge, 2016), and the author of the recent book, Propelled: How Boredom, Frustration, and Anticipation Lead us to the Good Life. In this episode, we focus on Propelled, and talk about boredom, frustration and anticipation, from a philosophical perspective. To put things into perspective, we first talk about Robert Nozick's experience machine, and what it tells us about the role of negative emotions. We then address boredom, frustration and anticipation, how they work, and their relationship with other mental phenomena, like the experience of time, preferences, envy, the IKEA effect, memory, and worldviews like optimism and pessimism. In the end, we talk about how people can learn to deal with these emotions. -- A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY PATRONS/SUPPORTERS: KARIN LIETZCKE, ANN BLANCHETTE, PER HELGE LARSEN, LAU GUERREIRO, JERRY MULLER, HANS FREDRIK SUNDE, BERNARDO SEIXAS, HERBERT GINTIS, RUTGER VOS, RICARDO VLADIMIRO, BO WINEGARD, CRAIG HEALY, OLAF ALEX, PHILIP KURIAN, JONATHAN VISSER, ANJAN KATTA, JAKOB KLINKBY, ADAM KESSEL, MATTHEW WHITINGBIRD, ARNAUD WOLFF, TIM HOLLOSY, HENRIK AHLENIUS, JOHN CONNORS, PAULINA BARREN, FILIP FORS CONNOLLY, DAN DEMETRIOU, ROBERT WINDHAGER, RUI INACIO, ARTHUR KOH, ZOOP, MARCO NEVES, MAX BEILBY, COLIN HOLBROOK, SUSAN PINKER, THOMAS TRUMBLE, PABLO SANTURBANO, SIMON COLUMBUS, PHIL KAVANAGH, JORGE ESPINHA, CORY CLARK, MARK BLYTH, ROBERTO INGUANZO, MIKKEL STORMYR, ERIC NEURMANN, SAMUEL ANDREEFF, FRANCIS FORDE, TIAGO NUNES, BERNARD HUGUENEY, ALEXANDER DANNBAUER, OMARI HICKSON, PHYLICIA STEVENS, FERGAL CUSSEN, YEVHEN BODRENKO, HAL HERZOG, NUNO MACHADO, DON ROSS, JOÃO ALVES DA SILVA, JONATHAN LEIBRANT, JOÃO LINHARES, OZLEM BULUT, NATHAN NGUYEN, STANTON T, SAMUEL CORREA, ERIK HAINES, MARK SMITH, J.W., JOÃO EIRA, TOM HUMMEL, SARDUS FRANCE, DAVID SLOAN WILSON, YACILA DEZA-ARAUJO, IDAN SOLON, ROMAIN ROCH, DMITRY GRIGORYEV, TOM ROTH, DIEGO LONDOÑO CORREA, YANICK PUNTER, ADANER USMANI, CHARLOTTE BLEASE, MIRAN B, NICOLE BARBARO, ADAM HUNT, PAWEL OSTASZEWSKI, MAX BEILBY, AL ORTIZ, NELLEKE BAK, KATHRINE AND PATRICK TOBIN, GUY MADISON, GARY G HELLMANN, AND SAIMA AFZAL!

From a gifted young writer, the story of his quest to reclaim his family’s apartment building in Poland—and of the astonishing entanglement with Nazi treasure hunters that follows. Menachem Kaiser’s brilliantly told story, woven from improbable events and profound revelations, is set in motion when the author takes up his Holocaust-survivor grandfather’s former battle to reclaim the family’s apartment building in Sosnowiec, Poland. Soon, he is on a circuitous path to encounters with the long-time residents of the building, and with a Polish lawyer known as “The Killer.” A surprise discovery—that his grandfather’s cousin not only survived the war, but wrote a secret memoir while a slave laborer in a vast, secret Nazi tunnel complex—leads to Kaiser being adopted as a virtual celebrity by a band of Silesian treasure seekers who revere the memoir as the indispensable guidebook to Nazi plunder. Propelled by rich original research, Kaiser immerses readers in profound questions that reach far beyond his personal quest. What does it mean to seize your own legacy? Can reclaimed property repair rifts among the living? Plunder is both a deeply immersive adventure story and an irreverent, daring interrogation of inheritance—material, spiritual, familial, and emotional.

Today's guest is Porter Singer (aka Sirgun Kaur) Porter Singer took her first Kundalini Yoga class at the Golden Bridge in Hollywood, CA in 2009. Drawn to the allure of this space and (mainly) the music they played, she signed up for a children's teacher training program that same day. It was in that training she met a fellow musician who invited her to be part of the Summer Solstice sound team, in June 2010. At Solstice, she learned about the month-long Aquarian teacher training at the Española ashram in August, which she ended up taking that year too. Upon returning from this 1-month intensive, she felt her identity slowly morph, adopting her spiritual name completely and wearing a head covering any time she went out. Propelled by what she believed to be positive changes in her life, she decided to skip Christmas with the family that year in favor of attending Winter Solstice. There, she reunited with two men from the Summer Solstice Sound Team who would launch her further along her 3HO path. At Summer Solstice 2011, she married Harimander Singh and also released her first mantra album "The Music Within" with Sat Darshan Singh. This album contained the single “Bliss”, which would become the soundtrack for a Yogi Bhajan slide show entitled “Facets of the Master”— played at every White Tantric Yoga event in the world. Things seemed to be evolving "magically", and in 2013, after the birth of her first son, she released her second album. Postpartum depression was really her first clue that kundalini yoga, or “Yogi Bhajan”, might not have, or be, the answer to everything. She started to seek alternate solutions to wellness. The more she researched and branched out, the more confining her life started to feel. And in 2019, she finally made the decision to separate from her husband and move from the Phoenix ashram community. She now lives in Washington state with her two boys and her new partner.

Janet Kravenko was hired by Madame Bluebell at the age of 17 to join her touring company in 1957. She was traveling around Europe with seven other girls performing in the prestigious troupe while absorbing the experience of a lifetime as a professional dancer. She was asked to join the group of sixteen girls that were traveling to Las Vegas to open the 2nd edition of the Lido de Paris, Ce Cést L´amour, at the Stardust Hotel, directed by Donn Arden, and moved to Las Vegas in 1959. We discuss what it was like being a woman living the life of a performer during those years as well as how much it has changed to be a woman in this country. She also shares about the high standards the Bluebells were held to and how, due to popular belief, they were not to “mingle” with casino guests. Enjoy!Check out the show notes here with photos of Janet as a Bluebell. Want to become a Patron and hear those bonus stories? Check out the real behind the scenes of my sparkly world here.

For Mikaela Pabon, she is living a dream that would make her 8-year-old self ecstatic! She is the founder of the statement-making athleisure brand, Dressed in Joy. It’s interesting to think that she never thought she would be able to live out her fashion dreams, but here she is, today, doing just that as a full-time entrepreneur. Her initial career path, although she didn’t like it, was in information technology (IT). Eventually, Mikaela found something in that line of work that she did enjoy in working with databases, which she did for about 15 years. But in 2015, the fashion enthusiast took her first dive into entrepreneurship and decided to call it quits after four years, and no profits made. After some time away, her dreams started to come back to her, and she was reminded of her days of watching fashion shows and “House of Style” on MTV, and it led her to design. Not for profit, but for herself. And if you ask Mikaela, she did not intend for the business she has now to be a business. For her, she was just designing something she wanted and didn’t see in the market. And to her surprise, people loved what she had to offer. After learning from her past mistakes, facing her limiting beliefs, and responding to customers, she built a successful and expanding brand and business. In this episode, you’ll hear: ☞ How Mikaela went from closing one business to opening another wildly successful one ☞ How she was able to leave her full-time job to focus on Dressed in Joy full time ☞ How Instagram Reels helped her to boost her audience in a short amount of time ☞ And why she believes that no matter the obstacle when it’s meant to be yours, it will be Listen to this episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify This episode is brought to you by: FreshBooks Try FreshBooks free for 30 days!

Unlike other land mammals, humans are not natural-born swimmers. Our evolutionary ancestors learned for survival. Now it’s one of the most popular activities in the world. So why do we swim? What is it about water that seduces us despite its dangers?A lifelong swimmer reared by swimming parents, this week’s guest couldn’t shake this question. What she discovered is far more compelling than you might imagine.Bonnie Tsui (@bonnietsui) is an alumnus of Harvard University, where she did not swim but instead rowed crew—and graduated magna cum laude in English and American Literature and Language.In 2009, her book American Chinatown: A People’s History of Five Neighborhoods won the 2009-2010 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature and was a San Francisco Chronicle bestseller and Best of 2009 Notable Bay Area Books selection. She has been the recipient of the Lowell Thomas Gold Award for travel journalism and the Jane Rainie Opel Young Alumna Award at Harvard University. In 2017, she was awarded the 2017 Karola Saekel Craib Excellence in Food Journalism Fellowship by the San Francisco Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier. She is also the recipient of a 2019 National Press Foundation Fellowship.A frequent contributor to The New York Times and California Sunday magazine, Bonnie’s latest book—and the focus of today’s conversation—is Why We Swim. Propelled by stories of Olympic champions, a Baghdad swim club that meets in Saddam Hussein’s palace pool, modern-day Japanese samurai swimmers, and even an Icelandic fisherman who improbably survives a wintry six-hour swim after a shipwreck, Bonnie dives into the deep, from the chilly San Francisco Bay to the South China Sea, investigating the ancestry and essence of water’s allure.Widely lauded, Why We Swim was named to TIME magazine’s list of 100 Must-Read Books of 2020. It’s also received praise from The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, Buzzfeed, Bustle, Booklist, Kirkus, and more. Beautifully written and completely immersive, it definitely ranks among my 2020 favorites—I couldn’t put it down.So let’s talk about it.This conversation is a love letter to swimming—a sport, lifestyle and obsession that Bonnie and I share.It’s a deconstruction of humanity’s relationship with the transformative power of water—an archeological dig that unearths mankind’s historic and fraught yet undeniably alluring connection with the sea.It’s about swimming as a means of survival.It’s about swimming as a conduit for well-being, competition, and community.It’s about the unique power of water—when combined with breath—to produce that elusive state called flow.But underneath it all, this is a conversation about why to be a swimmer is to be a seeker.The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.It was an absolute delight to share space and passion with a woman who hopes, as Oliver Sacks writes in Water Babies, to “swim till I die.” I concur with that idea. This conversation sheds light on why.Peace + Plants,Listen, Watch & SubscribeApple Podcasts | YouTube | Spotify | Stitcher | Google PodcastsThanks to this week’s sponsors:Athletic Greens: 75 whole food sourced ingredients designed to optimize 5 key areas of health, Athletic Greens is the delicious daily habit that sets you up for a healthy future.

Sports are well-known for their strong support and sense of community, so leveraging this power virtually makes sense. Today's guest, Nigel Eccles, is the co-founder and CEO of Flick, a live group chat platform for sports influencers and their fans. Previously, he founded FanDuel and has worked in sports and the sports betting space for over 20 years. In this episode, Nigel reflects on his journey as a founder and what it was like building FanDuel. He gives us insights into fundraising, how they managed to do a pivot from their previous platform, Hubdub, and got funders to stay. We then move onto Flick, learning more about how it works and why there was an impetus to start it. A key piece of success in the space are communities and how sticky they are. Nigel sheds light on some of the difficulties that come with online communities and the importance of creating spaces where people want to hang out. Having founded several companies now, Nigel shares why the only advice applicable to every single startup is to deeply understand the customer and their needs. We wrap the conversation up with hearing about managing growth, why Peloton has been the best tool Nigel has added to his life in the last year, and where you can go if you want to learn more about sports cards and betting.

Are you feeling unmotivated, less joyful, stressed out, or not feeling like yourself? Have you been told by your doctor that all of your symptoms are due to depression? Were you put on an antidepressant and noticed that it hasn't really helped? Guess what? It may not be depression! There are many other reasons you could be feeling the way you do, and unless your doctor is digging for the root cause then you might be getting misdiagnosed. Dr. Tabatha dissects this super important topic with Dr. Achina Stein, a fellow DO physician and brain health expert. You don't want to miss this episode!Dr. Achina is an osteopathic physician who graduated from UMDNJ school of osteopathic medicine in 1990 and has been in practice as a board-certified psychiatrist for 25 plus years. Her osteopathic roots set her apart from the conventional psychiatrists because of her use of osteopathic philosophy and biopsychosocial treatment approach. Initially on a psychoanalytic track, she became well trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and CBT and does psychotherapy with a number of people with underlying trauma issues, specifically mood and dissociative disorders. She has much experience using psychopharmacology working with the prison population, community mental health center with the chronic and persistent mental health population, and geriatric psychiatry inpatient population. She understood the limitations of treatment with medication and continually searched for other modalities of treatment. Propelled by her son’s health crisis in 2010, she found functional medicine which resolved all of his health problems as well as her own and since then, has been practicing functional medicine. She is certified by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine and is a certified practitioner of the Institute for Functional Medicine. Dr. Stein is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and awarded the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award by NAMI-RI in 2008. She has lived in RI since 2000 with her husband and three young adult children. She is presently in private practice in RI and co-owner of Functional Mind, LLC with nurse practitioner, Sally Davidson. This is an exciting time for her, as she recently launched her online health coaching program, HealthySelf Bootcamp, LLC to assist people from a distance to reach their health goals.
