The Enlightenment Project

In this episode, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Jonathan Robinson, the New York Times bestselling author of The Enlightenment Project and co-host of the popular podcast Awareness Explorers. This man has made a career out of befriending some of the greatest spiritual leaders of our time. From Oprah to Advashanti, he has interviewed over 100 notable people to get their take on how to live a happy, peaceful and meaningful life. He has learned from the Dalai Lama, Byron Katie, Deepak Chopra, Mother Teresa and Ram Dass. He shares some of what he learned in this episode, while saving a lot of what is in his book for you to read for more details. It is amazing when he discloses that he was a suicidal teenager. Look at him now! Dr. Robinson trains therapists in MDMA Treatment. You can learn more at www.mdmatraining.net. You'll find his podcast, where he interviews other gurus at www.awareness explorers.com. You can find his book, The Enlightenment Project on Amazon or his website, www.theenlightenmentproject.net. To reach Jonathan for more information, please use the contact form on either of the two last mentioned websites.
