How To Create Meaning In World Where So Many Are Lost

Episode 613 1h 40m


I know many of us can relate to feeling disconnected from each other, the natural world, and the things that really matter in life. So how did we lose our way and how can we make better sense of the world? It takes some inner work but also means cultivating truth and connecting with community, in order to reshape our narrative and change the collective conversation and state of the world.

Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I have a deep conversation on rediscovering meaning with Jamie Wheal, about reclaiming our inner passion, courage, and conviction. Throughout our conversation, we get into the various practices that help us seek transformational states. Jamie explains this can happen in a variety of ways, using the core elements of healing, inspiration, and connection that we gain from traditions around the world.

We discuss how trauma has become woven into our culture, from microtraumas to big T traumas, and the importance of community in healing which has been taken away from our current social systems. There are five drivers based on ancient wisdom that can help us heal and reconnect with ourselves that Jamie and I dig into, including bodywork practices like massage, specific breathing techniques, and even working on our sexuality in an intentional way, which Jamie refers to as sexual fitness. Self-discovery is constantly at our fingertips, and we have the ability to access it using a few key tools.

I hope you’ll tune in to learn more.
