Flow Genome Project co-founders, Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal rejoin Moe Abdou to discuss their latest book, Stealing Fire.

Igniting the hidden dimensions of flow

Nothing fascinates me more than the science of optimal performance – be it with world-class athletes or highly accomplished individuals – and no two individuals share that passion more than the co-founders of the Flow Genome Project, Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal.  For five years now, I’ve followed closely the work of Steven and Jamie, and not only have I improved my own ability to ignite my flow state; more importantly, I am more convinced than ever that a heightened state of mind has less to do with the human body, and much more with our minds.

In their latest book – Stealing Fire:  How Silicon Valley, the Navy SEALS, and Maverick Scientists Are Revolutionizing the Way We Live and Work – Steven and Jamie will undoubtedly challenge you too, to seek and discover your own hidden greatness.  Don’t expect an easy button, but do dive into the scientifically proven techniques that show you why and how your mind can rewire your body to defy its own biology, preconceived expectations and establish a new normal.  Here’s what we discuss:

  • What have we learned definitively about triggering Flow state
  • The science of ‘getting out of your head’
  • What can we all learn from Burning Man
  • Merging your consciousness – what does that really mean
  • The correlation between triggering Flow and growing a Startup
  • Why modern leaders manage states of mind
  • What do you do when you’ve lost your confidence
