Aubrey Marcus is a successful entrepreneur, sought-after speaker, creator of a hugely popular podcast, and one of the most respected voices in the field of psychedelic medicine. But he is first and foremost a seeker. In his work he shares his experiences openly and invites the world into his deepest and darkest moments, talking openly about his struggles with depression, anxiety, and the painful lessons learned from polyamory. Master Your Mind, Master Your Life contains hundreds of clinical citations along with an accumulation of everything Marcus has discovered from pushing the limits of his physical, emotional, and spiritual self.
How do we transition from an action oriented, practical mindset, into the heart-centered presence of spirit? How do we synthesize and bring harmony between the thinking mind and the knowing mind? Master Your Mind, Master Your Life provides both practical and philosophical answers to help you overcome your mental resistance. To achieve your goals and create more unity with yourself, you must learn to recognize and accept how the story you tell yourself holds you back.
Master Your Mind, Master Your Life is a spiritual guide, a collection of stories, and a trusted step-by-step program to help us master our thoughts and navigate any situation. Marcus take us through a hero’s journey of emotional and spiritual awakening, backed by the latest science. Each chapter ends with a section called “Into the Dojo,” in which he offers two different prescriptive treatments. The first option is universally accessible. The second option is a more advanced method, which includes an exploration of the great transformative practices and medicines of the world.
Wise, profound, and brutally honest, Marcus shows you how to fight the programming that keeps you trapped from optimizing your life, teaches you to train your ego, recognize resistance, form a community of allies, face your inner critic, and confront your traumas all to unite your mind, body, and spirit.
