IAH – Episode 100 – Taryn Southern and Jack Kornfield

EPISODE 100 of the It’s All Happening Podcast!!! Amazing. To celebrate this milestone I brought back two return guests to the fold – Taryn Southern and Jack Kornfield. Taryn is the main guest and takes us on a wonderfully informative and inspirational journey into the emerging worlds of Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence. Taryn just released a new single that has AI as her band! And of course, Jack Kornfield’s heartfelt wisdom grounds us in a dharma talk centered around making friends with our practice in these complex times. This episode truly embodies my passions of bringing technology and spirituality into one conversation.

I am beyond moved, grateful and blown away that 100 episodes has been reached. It seemed so far away! With the love and support of you guys we’ll certainly have 100 more! Thank you everyone who’s been riding along with me on the adventure these past two years. You’ve taught me more than you’ll ever know.

This episode was brought to you by Bhakti Fest! It happens on September 6-11th in Joshua Tree!

IAH – Episode 50 – Ian Forester

A huge milestone for IAH! Episode 50!! This weeks guest at the kitchen table is Ian Forester – VR visionary, consciousness provocateur, businessman and architect for the new reality. He came by initially because I’m a lifelong fan and advocate of VR but what transpired was far more interesting, dense and exciting than just talking about the current state of VR tech. We cover everything from our relationship to this thing we call reality, to politics and to how our evolution might get mapped in the post-scarcity age which will give way to Augmented Realities. I don’t normally say this about people but keep your eye out for Ian – he may be poised to become one of the great thought leaders of our generation.

INTRO TOPIC – an Alan Watts snippet and a tale on the systemic roots of fertile soil that grow Trumps.
