Navigating The Dark Night and Shifts In Identity With Neuroscientist Mona Sobhani

OCT 27, 202358 MIN

Description

Today’s guest is a fascinating and inspiring example of expanding beyond an old identity to step into something deeper.

Mona Sobhani was a hard-charging neuroscientist who at one point looked at spirituality as a coping mechanism for people who couldn’t cut it in the real world.

Through an unforeseen series of direct experiences and deep exploration of scientific evidence, she gradually transformed her worldview and began to embrace the ineffable mystery that is spiritual life. Her book Proof of Spiritual Phenomena shares her experience as well as the mountain of scientific evidence that substantiates what many ancient wisdom teachings have been saying all along.

In this conversation, we talk a lot about the interplay of scientism and spirituality. Some interesting talking points for me include:

  • Why much of the science community continue to overlook or turn away from the compelling evidence surrounding spiritual phenomena and their potential impact on the human experience

  • How to skillfully navigate shifts in identity and transformational conflicts

  • Making it through a dark night of the soul

  • Finding your tribe as you make these changes

  • How Science and spirituality can exist harmoniously
