Is Remaining Curious the Key to Life, Science and Everything?

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

A deeply spiritual conversation with a leader in breathwork, peace and love for all.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

… I am honored and grateful to bring you a conversation that I recorded in person with Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar at the Art of Living Center in Los Angeles.

Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar is a leader of an international movement with more than 50 million followers who all do breathwork every single morning. He has also worked for 40 years as a global ambassador for peace at the very highest levels.

Since 1981, Gurudev has been a voice for harmony in diversity and a global ambassador for peace. His vision of personal and social transformation through mental health and wellness has ignited a global movement.
He is the founder of The Art of Living Foundation and The International Association for Human Values, two non-profit organizations that focus on service, personal growth, mental wellness, and social transformation.

I did his breathwork exercises every morning without fail for five years while fixing my mind, body and nervous system, and I have a huge amount of respect for his work in the world. It was a joy to chat with him in person and his childlike curiosity, enthusiasm for teaching, and deep understanding of the world are echoed in every word of this episode.

Gurudev is a true visionary, so I am grateful that he set aside time to talk with me so I could share his wisdom with you.
