This episode of Aubrey Marcus Podcast Books features one of my favorite books--Island by Aldous Huxley. It is a masterpiece of utopian fiction that can completely shatter your paradigm. The section I read focuses in on the character Will and his first experience with Moksha, a fictional psychedelic sacrament. One central tenet of this book and the scene specifically is the importance of cultivating awareness of your des... Read more

As many of you know I tend to find myself in difficult positions, perhaps so I can find a pathway out of these mental, emotional, and physical challenges. It’s like I’m playing a giant game of Escape Room with my own mind. One brutal, but incredibly helpful tactic I leverage when I find myself in a tight internal spot is the writing of Anthony de Mello. Anthony de Mello is an author whose wisdom is only matched by the brutality ... Read more

Colin went viral and was quickly one of the most hated men in America, it took a toll on their lives and their relationship. 15 years later, Colin and Christie stand before you happier and healthier...

Don Miguel Ruiz Jr is the son of one of my favorite spiritual mentors. I haven’t spent a lot of time with his books, but I grabbed this book from my bookshelf, drawn to the Miguel Ruiz name. I opened to a random page that I had dog-eared many years ago and was blown away with the truth that was being bestowed upon me. Perhaps it is the classic case that the teaching appears when the student is ready. It has taken me a long time ... Read more

Today I am reading an excerpt from Jordan B Peterson’s 12 Rules For Life: An Antidote To Chaos.  The section I am reading is at the end of the book, and I believe its significance is often overlooked. In this section Jordan asks some of the most pragmatic questions: What shall I do today? Tomorrow? With my life? Instead of thinking about the answer, he just taps into his own inner knowing and writes it down--A skill tha... Read more

Mark Manson is not only one of the great authors of our time, but also one of the most important modern philosophers. I know we are afraid to call our thought leaders today “philosophers” because a philosopher should be old, probably dead, and give no functional wisdom. Mark is young, alive, practical AF and yes, a philosopher. In this AMP Books I go over Manson’s 1st Law of Emotion: For Every Action, There Is An Equal And Oppos... Read more

My man Humble The Poet dropped by to share some witty wisdom in his own poetic way. Word by word, Humble is laying down the bricks on the pathway to a life of growth and satisfaction. We talk about the dichotomy of being a “success” in the eyes of social media, where the more connected we are, the more lonely we become. This podcast is full of the “tools” that both Humble and I have used to help us navigate the waters of life. I... Read more

Awakening Spirits by Native American trained Tom Brown is a short yet powerful book. The passage I selected addresses the duality of the physical and spiritual mind and the bridge that connects the two of them: choice. On another note I adapted his Sacred Silence technique to create my guided meditation which I have available on my website here: http://bit.ly/2IQw2M5

Healthcare is a daunting beast, physically, emotionally, and financially--with cancer sitting at the helm. In his ... Read more

Rise Of The Mystics is one of my all time favorite books from one of my favorite authors and personal mentors, Ted Dekker. Ted carries a deep understanding of the roots of Christian mysticism with his own experiential lessons from an incredible life. Ted is a natural storyteller, and his fiction is some of the best in the world. It is no surprise he has sold over 10 million books. This passage is from Rise Of The My... Read more

My good friend and prolific author Ryan Holiday is back again with another subject masterpiece. Ryan is perhaps most well known for returning stoic philosophy to the modern zeitgeist, but in this podcast we discuss a key to life that may run even deeper than stoicism: Stillness. This podcast is full of practical advice and the historical examples of how many of our greatest heroes were able to find success in spite of the chaos ...

And make sure to grab Cory’s new book Now Is ... Read more

I often share the story about the first time that Whitney took another lover. I didn’t know if I should punch someone in the face, cry or vomit...repeatedly.  A lot of people can’t quite comprehend why I would put myself in that situation, wouldn’t it be easier to be monogamous? Open relationships have never been about hedonism, they are about an ideal. They are about truth and freedom. Which are both synonyms of Love. There is ... Read more

This is one of my favorite podcasts this year.  When I met musician and psychonaut East Forest, it was immediately apparent he was one of those people I would always call friend. We talk about the horrible perfection of existence--all the love, all the pain and everything in between.  I first became familiar with his work through listening to his album entitled Ram Dass, which features what might be some of the last spoken teach...

Cyrano de Bergerac is not just a fictional character in a movie or a play.  Cyrano is an ideal, an archetype, and a teacher for how I want to live and how I want to die. He always has been, as much as any living example.  He is one who is uncompromising to his code of honor, who makes the right decision regardless of the personal cost, and though his concept of love may be flawed, it’s this fatal flaw that makes him all too huma...
