Fascia is a buzz word in most yoga and physical fitness circles these days, but what are people really talking about? Does it change long standing ideas about how the human body operates and moves? What does fascia have to do with how we experience pain? How might all of this give us a deeper understanding of movement and practices like yoga? Join us with special guest, Tom Myers, as we dive into these topics and more to gain a deeper understanding of the human body.

Tom Myers, a pioneer of the human body, anatomy expert and author of the now classic text Anatomy Trains has had a huge impact on yogis, body workers, massage therapists, personal trainers, physical therapists and more.

It's said that ayahuasca has been used in South America as a plant medicine for thousands of years and we see it experiencing a wave of interest and popularity in an underground movement in the United States. Wanting to know more about this indigenous medicine, our guest Rachel Harris, a trained psychologist, questioned hundreds of people about their ayahuasca experiences here in the United States. What she learned confirms many of the benefits we see from other early research being done on ayahuasca and other entheogenic plant medicines. Are there potential medicinal or therapeutic benefits to drinking ayahuasca? What might our society look like if it had a different view of psychedelics? We explore these questions and more!

Psychologist Rachel Harris, PhD is the author of multiple books, including the recently released Listening to Ayahuasca published by New World Library. She received a National Institutes of Health New Investigator's award, has published more than forty scientific studies in peer reviewed journals, and has worked as a psychological consultant to Fortune 500 companies and the United Nations.

We find ourselves at an amazing intersection of history. The cross pollination of worldwide ideas, methods, and research for altered and optimal states of consciousness seems to finally be at a tipping point where we can understand more about these states, free from the dogmatic thinking that used to accompany them. Scientists are talking to yogis, extreme athletes, shamans, high powered executives, musicians, and more to find out what they do to achieve these states and how these states effect their lives. Our guest, Steven Kotler, has been on the cutting edge of this revolution for years and leads a new worldwide wave of people seeking to understand these various states of consciousness and the limits of human performance.

Steven Kotler is a New York Times-bestselling author, an award-winning journalist and the cofounder/director of research for the Flow Genome Project.
