Neurobiology, the study of the nervous system, is a field of science that investigates the biological mechanisms that underlie behavior as well as how brains process information. With advances in the field, we can now harness biometric data to map and measure what’s happening in our bodies and brains when we’re experiencing both the ordinary and extraordinary. By deliberately shifting our neurophysiology – our breathing, posture, facial expressions, movements, or brainwaves – we can reverse-engineer a whole host of non-ordinary states.
This episode of the podcast features Jamie Wheal, co-founder and director of the Flow Genome Project and Flow Dojo, and author of the bestselling book Stealing Fire. Jamie talks about non-ordinary states of consciousness, group flow, and practices for accessing peak experience states.
