Pure & Free Methods To Alter Your State Of Thoughts

I really feel lucky to be invited to many, many occasions within the well being and wellness trade…

…however actually, these days I have not felt all that motivated to go to most of them.

This new reluctance to get on a aircraft (or a practice, or an vehicle) would not have something to do with the occasions themselves. Most of them provide informative, attention-grabbing content material and the prospect to spend time with like-minded health-seekers. However throughout the pandemic, my journey stopped solely, and that point at residence felt like an actual present. Now that occasions are again up and operating, I am being ultra-choosy about what’s value taking away from my household time.

There’s one occasion, although, that’s properly, properly definitely worth the journey. It is referred to as RUNGA, and it is essentially the most uplifting, rejuvenating, and empowering occasion I’ve ever attended. RUNGA is held twice a 12 months for 3 days, and I am an everyday. Earlier this month, I flew all the way down to Austin, Texas for RUNGA, and I used to be as soon as once more blown away by the expertise.

Solely fifty friends are invited to the attractive, secluded property, which supplies RUNGA an intimacy that I’ve by no means felt at different occasions. The individuals who go have a variety of backgrounds, however what they share is their dedication to optimum well being.

Every day, we woke as much as a scrumptious, nourishing natural breakfast, then spent the times engaged in actions like yoga and meditation, oxygen remedies, IVs, biohacking, cooking workshops, and far, way more. The particular dinners within the night had been simply as scrumptious and nourishing because the breakfasts (with the added bonus of natural wine from my favourite Dry Farm Wines). The evenings had been additionally a time for knowledgeable panels, and I used to be lucky to not solely have the ability to pay attention and study, however to be on two panels myself.

The primary was a panel referred to as “State of Thoughts,” throughout which we talked about spirituality, psychedelics, sensible drug stacks, and basic mindstate shifting utilizing plant medicines, applied sciences, breath, and different cutting-edge, scientific, and pure strategies to change one’s way of thinking. My co-panelists had been Tero Isokauppila from 4 Sigmatic, Joseph Anew from the Intuitive Warrior podcast (and the creator of RUNGA), and my buddy Dr. John Lieurance of MitoZen. John and Joseph have been on my present for a number of episodes (listed under), so it was actually cool to have an opportunity to speak to them each without delay.

Whereas at RUNGA, I additionally hosted a free-bag Q&A, which included questions on every little thing from biohacking a wholesome residence to how I handle my schedule and household/work obligations, water filtration, EMFs, regrowing cartilage and treating joint accidents, and way more (even the very best time to eat dinner).

I recorded each the panel and the Q&A, so there’s an enormous vary of matters lined on this one episode – it’s possible you’ll even must pay attention greater than as soon as! And in the event you’re interested by becoming a member of me for the subsequent RUNGA occasion that’s set to be held in April 2023 in Austin, Texas, you may apply right here.
