In this episode, Devi chats with Mark Gober about Consciousness and Spiritual Entrepreneurship. Mark is an author, a Partner at Sherpa Technology Group in Silicon Valley, a former investment banker with UBS in New York, and former captain of the Princeton tennis team where he graduated magna cum laude. His worldview was turned upside down in late 2016 when he was exposed to world-changing science which suggested that, contrary to mainstream assumptions, consciousness is not produced by the brain. After researching extensively, he wrote An End to Upside Down Thinking to introduce the general public to these cutting-edge ideas -- all in an effort to encourage a much-needed global shift in scientific and existential thinking. Mark's book has been endorsed by leading thinkers such as former Harvard neurosurgeon Eben Alexander MD, Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr. Ervin Laszlo, Pixar founder Loren Carpenter, University of Virginia professor of neurobehavioral sciences and Harvard PhD Dr. Ed Kelly, Chicken Soup for the Soul author Jack Canfield, actress Goldie Hawn, and many others (for full endorsement list, see: https://markgober.com/endorsements/).
