The Biology of Belief: The Intersection of Consciousness and Matter with Bruce Lipton

In this episode, we’re kicking off a new format to the IGNTD Relationships podcast! Each month we will be exploring a new theme with various guests and at the end of the month we’ll wrap it all up with our key findings through a ‘Going Deep’ episode. This month, the theme we will be exploring is our relationship between our biology, body, and physical nature with our spirituality and psychology.

To start things off this month, we’re interviewing Bruce Lipton! Bruce is an internationally recognized leader in bridging the gap between science and spirituality. He is a stem cell biologist and author of the best-selling book, The Biology of Belief. His cutting-edge research and teachings uncover the missing connections between psychology, spirituality, and biology.

In today’s episode, Bruce gives many key insights from several of his books, including The Biology of Belief and The Honeymoon Effect. He talks about how to deprogram yourself from feeling stuck and reprogram yourself for success and happiness, the power of perspective, where our negative behaviors or traits come from and how they manifest in our children, social norms and what to do when confronted with a tough decision, how to find freedom from fear, the science of epigenetic, and the benefits of the placebo effect!

Bruce’s work is incredibly fascinated and we are so excited for you all to listen in to this week’s episode!
