5/5
“This is unlike any explanation of meditation and enlightenment that I've ever heard of. This is so refreshing. I love the view of it from science and practical application in the modern world. I can't wait for the next episode to come out.”

5/5
“This is an important podcast. The main thing neuroscientists agree on is that our reptilian brain will drive us toward our most destructive behaviors. Meditation is a way to bypass that. Skeptics should listen and get this in their toolbox.”
