With society changing at a rapid pace, humanity is facing a meaning crisis; many feel they lack a sense of purpose. Many consider our world too complex for religion to be relevant, so how can we rediscover meaning in life?

The Mindvalley Podcast is a show about wisdom and ideas we were never taught at school, showcasing leaders in various fields discussing personal growth in mind, body, and spirit.

In this May 2021 episode, host Vishen Lakhiani talks to Jamie Wheal, bestselling author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Stealing Fire. Wheal is also the founder of the Flow Genome Project, an organization that researches human performance. In this wide-ranging discussion, Wheal shares how we can rethink religion, society, and politics to combat polarization.
