And welcome back to another episode of the MindMill Podcast.
I have to say, it’s so fulfilling to be back on the show. It feels like a fresh start. And mostly, I love sharing these topics and guests with you. I relish open discussions and connections with fascinating people. And on that note, please send me feedback about what topics you would like to hear discussed on the show, who you would like me to chat with.
Addressing the Social Dilemma with Open Discussion.
I just recently watched the Social Dilemma documentary. We are surrendering our uniqueness and free-will for click bate and fleeting dopamine hits. As much as it feels like we are destined to continue down this path of distraction and divide, I also found some silver linings. The film highlights that we are losing the ability to have open discussion with each other. Seeing how that is the foundation of this show, I feel empowered to continue producing the Mindmill. I love being back, healthy, and presenting this new episode with Drew to you today.
I’ve known Drew since he moved to Colorado and started teaching at a local gym. Over the years, we’ve become great friends.
However, after I got sick, Drew became like a brother to me. He hosted a fundraising event on my behalf, came and visited me at the Mayo clinic, and guided me through weekly cyber hypnosis sessions to keep my mind and soul strong through the darkest points of my illness.
After our interview, we recorded a short hypnosis session together.
I included the session at the end of the show, so stick around! I’ve witnessed Drew grow in incredible ways in the years we’ve known each other. I’m so grateful for Drew, and am happy to share this conversation with him on the Mindmill. Enjoy!
