Today’s guest is a fascinating and inspiring example of expanding beyond an old identity to step into something deeper.

Mona Sobhani was a hard-charging neuroscientist who at one point looked at spirituality as a coping mechanism for people who couldn’t cut it in the real world.

Through an unforeseen series of direct experiences and deep exploration of scientific evidence, she gradually transformed her worldview and began to embrace the ineffable mystery that is spiritual life. Her book Proof of Spiritual Phenomena shares her experience as well as the mountain of scientific evidence that substantiates what many ancient wisdom teachings have been saying all along.

In this conversation, we talk a lot about the interplay of scientism and spirituality. Some interesting talking points for me include:

  • Why much of the science community continue to overlook or turn away from the compelling evidence surrounding spiritual phenomena and their potential impact on the human experience

  • How to skillfully navigate shifts in identity and transformational conflicts

  • Making it through a dark night of the soul

  • Finding your tribe as you make these changes

  • How Science and spirituality can exist harmoniously

I recently came across the work of author, illustrator, and creator of LifeExplained Hans Wilhelm.

Hans does a fantastic job simplifying and distilling topics about how Earth is a school for the evolution of our consciousness and how reality is actually orchestrated for this purpose and many other interesting stuff on his YouTube channel and Website. He also has written over 200 children's books including a bunch that explain spiritual concepts.

In this conversation, we dive deep into the big question that occupies many of our minds: why are we here? How do we make the most of this experience?

To answer this question, Hans helps illuminate the laws of Karma and how they show up in our everyday lives. As I’ve talked about in the responsive reality, we come to see that there is an intelligence that brings us the perfect choreography of experiences needed to return us to our divine state. This process is a gradual realization vs. addition. 

In addition to this overarching concept, we also discuss: 

  • Lightworkers - what are they and how are they doing

  • The difference between knowledge and wisdom

  • How to find meaning in what can feel like trying times

  • The purification spheres

  • The importance of forgiveness and repentance 

  • Educating children on spirituality

Today’s guests are Nicco Reggente and Leo Christov-Moore from The Institute for Advanced Consciousness Studies. The IACS is trying to make these life-altering experiences available to more people by better understanding what goes into meditative and entheogenic experiences so that we can find additional, more accessible entry points using modern technology. Through a better understanding of both the mechanics of what creates these states from how our brains change, to traditional components like the role of a facilitator and set and setting, they hope to make attaining positive behavior through these states accessible to the masses. Right now their research focus is on enhancing meditation, neuromodulation, and technodelics.

 This conversation is wide-ranging and builds upon past conversations I’ve had on the latest Neuroscience of Meditation. Some highlights include:

 

  • Why their research lab is set up like a startup vs. typical academia

  • The current state of using ultrasound to induce altered states

  • What Technodelics are and why they are exciting

  • Where they see the biggest opportunities to make entheogenic experiences more accessible

  • Their principal first approach to understanding the deeper why behind the impact these states create

  • What they learned as researchers at a week-long Joe Dispenza event

  • Considerations for the early exploration of “shared consciousness” capacities
