I recently spent an entire month in Tallinn, Estonia. It's a small country near the border of Finland and was the site of the 2018 Mindvalley University, a month-long transformational event that is designed to create a university-style education model for all ages. I was fortunate to be invited as a Key Teacher, and I wanted to share with you a conversation I had with the founder and CEO of Mindvalley, former podcast guest on this episode, and my good friend, Vishen Lakhiani.
On top of founding Mindvalley, Vishen also started Dealmates, a Malaysian-based e-commerce site, Blinklist, a social bookmarking service and A-Fest, an invite-only conference that offers training in conscious entrepreneurship and mindfulness.
Vishen is also the author of New York Times Bestseller, “The Code of the Extraordinary Mind”, a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything—love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more—which they inherit and pass on from generation to generation.
In this live fireside session, Vishen and I get down to the wild truths about health, biohacking, and longevity. Vishen had a few questions for me, and I was also able to answer a few questions from the audience.
