Drummer Stephen Chopek is an inspiring example of someone who is committed and unwavering in his pursuit of health of mind, body and spirit on the road.

In this conversation:

  • Making the transition from career drummer sideman to front man and solo artist. What that progression has entailed and what he has learned.
  • Motivating factors in Chopek’s transition to being a plant-based vegan- Master Cleanse, empathy for Animals, listening to his body on tour in order to find out how he could perform at his highest level.
  • The life changing experience of doing a 10 day Vipassana silent meditation retreat and how that has manifested in his everyday life and his music i.e. the power of decision making, the concepts of impermanence and acceptance.
  • What Chopek gained by cutting out alcohol on the road and how that set him up for a morning routine that has enabled him to thrive.
