We are crossing the threshold of a fundamental shift in our WorldView, which carries the potential to positively transform our lives beyond any shift we as humans have ever before experienced.Much more than a fad or a trend, this creative shift of thought - into our power as creators of our lives, w… read more



We are witnessing a revolution in human possibility - a growing movement to storm heaven and steal fire.

It's about a $4 trillion dollar underground revolution in hacking consciousness to increase performance.

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest Steven Kotler -
co-author with Jamie Wheal, of STEALING FIRE:
How to Harness the Revolution in Altered States -
the story of Silicon Valley executives, members of
the U.S. special forces, maverick scientists,
to name only a few—who are turning everything
we thought we knew about high-performance upside down.

Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers
have found a surprising short cut.

They're harnessing altered states of consciousness
to solve critical challenges and outperform their competition.

Today, this revolution is spreading from the extreme
to the mainstream, forcing us to rethink how we can
all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.

Driven by four accelerating forces — psychology,
neurobiology, technology and pharmacology —
we are gaining access to and insights about
some of the most controversial and misunderstood
terrain in history.

It is essential to know how to navigate these potent forces -
so we can harness them safely and responsibly,
and avoid common traps that exist as we explore
the edge of consciousness and human potential.

New York Times bestselling author Steven Kotler and performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating behind the scenes of this revolution-from the Virginia Beach home of SEAL Team Six, to the Googleplex in Mountain View, to the Burning Man festival in Nevada, to Richard Branson’s hideaway on Necker Island, to Red Bull’s headquarters in Santa Monica, to Nike’s innovation team in Portland, to the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide.

Today, this revolution is spreading to the mainstream, fueling a trillion dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.

Join Julie Ann and Steven to enter that revolution - to discover the nature of “ecstasis”—those moments where we step beyond our default consciousness - and begin to explore more expansive possibilities, in the intersection of consciousness, wellbeing and performance.
