In this episode of the Align podcast, Jim Kwik and I have a conversation on the three senses: sound, touch, and sight. We discuss how you are born with these powerful tools but the majority of us never get trained on how to use and develop them effectively. We also discuss how these powers relate not only to our overall wellbeing but also to our cognitive performance and physiology. This episode will give you a clear guide on how to tap into the power of sound, sight, and touch, to change the way you interact in the world and more importantly, the way you interact with yourself.

In this episode of the Align Podcast, I chat with my dear friend, Byron Katie, who shares invaluable insight into living in the present moment. Through this conversation, you will have a deeper understanding of how our unhappiness, stress, and anxiety all stem from our lack of living in our now. And through simply shifting our perspective to the moment we are living in, we are able to experience our life to the fullest.
We also dive into how to come to terms with our death, un-trapping ourselves from the story we are living in, and many more mindfulness nuggets you don’t want to miss.
About Byron Katie:
In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year spiral into depression, rage, and self-loathing, Byron Katie woke up one morning to a state of constant joy that has never left her. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Her simple yet powerful process of inquiry is called The Work.
The Work consists of four questions and the turnarounds, which are a way of experiencing the opposite of what you believe. When you question a thought, you see around it to the choices beyond suffering.
Katie has been bringing The Work to millions of people for more than thirty years. Her public events, weekend workshops, five-day intensives, nine-day School for The Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House have brought freedom to people all over the world.
Byron Katie’s books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, A Thousand Names for Joy, and A Mind at Home with Itself. For more information, visit thework.com.

Did you know up until the age of five, the interaction between our movement and gravity is subconscious? After the age of five, we begin to "learn" how to use our muscles, which is an incredible disruption to our relationship with nature.
In this episode of the Align podcast, I chat with well-known movement expert, Dr. Nicholas Romanov, on the biomechanics of movement and why it's essential we realign with gravity to prevent injury and move optimally. We go further than just movement, and also dive into how our emotions, perception, and vibrations all correlate to the way we move.
Dr. Nicholas Romanov is a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury.
