This is one of my all time favorite conversations with comedian, philosopher, and fellow psychonaut Duncan Trussell. I can’t think of a better time to bring this conversation back to the collective. We discuss how psychedelics are challenging the stories about how to heal trauma, the reality of how small our fears are in comparison to the divine, and the illusion of control that we all love so much.Check out Midnight Gospel | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kQWAqjFJS0 Connect with Duncan Trusse...more

On one hand there is an immense desire to be creative, and on the other… Live performance art has slammed to a deafening halt. We also discuss the need for forgiveness, and...more
Powerlifting poet Jerzy Gregorek is a legend, and boasts one of the biggest podcasts ever with Tim Ferriss.

Or if you want to stick with the tried and true, the practices in Own The Day, Own Your Life will help support you through these unstable times. Follow Kyle on Ins...more

I am announcing that I am stepping down as the CEO of Onnit. I will never stop supporting Onnit, believing in Onnit, or embodying what it means to be Onnit. I have realized that the best way that I can serve Onnit is not by being CEO, but by finding the soul who is meant to lead Onnit into its next phase. I found that in Jason Havey, the current President. I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more from a place of heart than Jason. He has made this decision easy for me because he embodies what...more

I have experienced most of the plant medicines and transformative practices known to man and none have been as powerful and as pure as spending 6 days in absolute darkness and silence. In this podcast we flip the script and AMP Veteran Erick Godsey lead’s me through the story using the framework of the hero's journey.

My relationship with Whitney has been the most profound teacher in my life. It’s been the most difficult and most beautiful ceremony I could ever conceive. And it’s still going strong after 8 years! Yes we broke up. We called off our engagement. There was a lot of pain. There was a lot of heartache. But the lessons were generous and bountiful as well. We have learned so much about ourselves, about love, about honesty, and about trusting our adventure together, no matter what happens. From where...more
This year, as a special gift to AMP listeners, I decided to rerelease the epic Christmas story told by Tero Isokauppila on my podcast.

Heads up: This podcast talks a lot about sex, of many varieties. Jason Ellis has had a plethora of seemingly contrasting careers: Pro Skateboarder, whipping his dick out on Howard Stern (yes, this is a career when you become the most searched subject on Google that day), MMA fighter, radio and podcast host, and champion for the honest expression of bisexuality.

For the final episode of season 1 of Aubrey Marcus Podcast Books I am reading a poem called “The Return” from the book Devotions by Mary Oliver. The poem focuses on a lesser known, but equally important aspect of the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. It doesn’t highlight the heroes battle that has been written about for millenia, but instead Mary Oliver chooses the heroes return out of the maze. In a few simple words Mary Oliver delivers fundamental human truths and this really highlights what ...more

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.

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.

Anthony de Mello is an author whose wisdom is only matched by the brutality in which he delivers it. This section from his book The Way To Love ...more
When Colin Guinn and Christie Lee Woods went on The Amazing Race in 2004 they were a competitive team enroute to disaster. Not only did they not win in 2004 the producers decided to make them the villains of the season and it worked.

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 to realize that one of the great human freedoms is our own ability t...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 that all of us have the ability to utilize. 12 Rules For Life | https://www.jo...more

We talk a lot about the fuel that sustains an entrepreneur, the value of competition, and of course a little bit of toilet humor. Connect with Miki Agrawal:Tushy | http...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 Opposite Emotional Reaction. The reading is from Mark’s latest best selle...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. In a more classic AMP fashion we also share my most recent psychedeli...more
Awakening Spirits by Native American trained Tom Brown is a short yet powerful book.

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 no greater example of this ideal than in the utopian society envisio...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 teachings of the spiritual master. Please listen to this podcast, as wel...more
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 human. I know most of you listen to the podcast, but if you haven’t chec...more

The Prophet by Khalil Gibran is a book that I have been familiar with for years. When I first read it, I struggled to grasp the magnitude of its teachings.
