EA Ep. 19 - Conspiracy Theories and the Esoteric Agenda
Filmmaker Ben Stewart talks about his latest film The Esoteric Agenda 2, and his take on current conspiracy theories in the wake of the global pandemic and the challenges we are facing collectively as humans. While recognizing that groups of interest have indeed caused and continue to create all kinds of unfairness and chaos, Stewart chooses to focus on what he calls 'the Esoteric Agenda', the phenomenon of a massive awakening, where we are being confronted with conflicting information, tribalism, outdated established narratives and the urgent need to exercise our critical thinking, go within ourselves by using practices such as meditation to connect directly to the source and elevate the value of love to breach ideological divides to connect and evolve as one humanity.

Wim Hof method instructor and breathwork practitioner Steve Beattie tells us the story of his breakthrough during an ice bath where decades of bottled up emotions were instantly released. That was a defining moment in his life that would push him to go deeper within himself with breathwork exercises that allowed him to explore and process his stored emotions and help clients achieve the same healing results. A firm believer in science and empiric knowledge, he left his job as a bored Geologist working in front of a computer, to embark on adventurous bike rides and a journey of self-discovery through body awareness and conscious breathing. He now calls himself a spiritual atheist.

EA Ep. 14 - 'unhappy standard person' to 'meditative psychedelic warrior' with Robert Bent
A few months ago, I sat down with entrepreneur Robert Bent to talk about his journey from an 'unhappy standard person' to 'meditative psychedelic warrior' as he jokingly refers to the side of the spectrum where people are able to stay in the present moment. While his path seemed to be all laid out through business schools and the world of investment banking, Bent set out on a journey, where he "failed" in numerous ventures and went on epic adventures with the specific purpose to face his fears. Having found himself very talented at making friends and building communities, combined with his interest in wellness, he now uses tools such as hot/cold exposure, meditation, and social connection to facilitate transformative experiences. Check out his wellness facility at www.goinward.ca For more transformative activities such as breathwork exercises, you can do at home during these times, visit elementalacademy.org

EA Ep.13 - Tools from Functional Medicine with Sachin Patel
Functional Medicine practitioner Sachin Patel shares with us some of the elemental tools to heal yourself that are available to everyone: fasting, sleeping, and silence (meditation). In this podcast, we talk about how Functional Medicine can work alongside traditional medicine to address chronic disorders that are the product of our modern lifestyle. From the food we eat, the quality of our sleep, to the kind of thoughts we have inside our mind, our health care system would be completely transformed if we took our own health into our hands by getting educated and we didn't wait to become sick in the first place. Sachin Patel also encourages medical practitioners to lead by example and become a role model, rather than simply passing on information.
