Great conversation Brian, and i’m so glad you found the courage to ditch banking and do what you love. Your guest is a wonderful speaker, so genuine, clear, and humble. Thanks to you both for two hours of ‘Enlightenment’, and the tools to get there. I hope you get to meet the Dali Lama and Sadhguru also, if you have not already done! Namaste, best wishes from Éire ( Ireland ) … Pat

The Best Talk I’ve ever ever heard so far.. I can feel the sincerity… had learned a lot of things.. so my grandpa wasn’t wrong (or being strict) when he nagged about “fixing the bed” “wash your dish” stuff.. wish I could teach my kids the same without them rolling their eyes

This was, by very far, the best “on the way to enlightenment/guru/monk/motivator” guest you ever had so far on your show. This now priest, made twice in a lifetime, the most difficult choices very few human beings were faced with. Remarkable !
