Have You Ever Been Excited For Now?

By December 14, 2014January 31st, 20243 Comments

IN-Q  returns. It’s time to question everything. It’s time to get excited for now.

If you’ve been on this journey with me for a while, no doubt RRP 81  seared Q into your permanent consciousness. If you’re new to the show, I strongly suggest you give that episode a listen first. Not only is it an epic conversation, it will give you some crucial context and foundation for today’s mind meld.

Nonetheless, here’s a quick breakdown on the impressive IN-Q curriculum vitae:

Rapper. Actor. Teacher. Songwriter, TED Talker & internationally revered spoken word artist, IN-Q is a national poetry slam champion who has shared the stage with people like Barack Obama, De La Soul, Eminem, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Legend and even Cirque du Soleil. He has toured over 70 colleges; written songs for Miley Cyrus, Rock Mafia, Selena Gomez and Aloe Blacc and has been featured on virtually every TV network from A&E to ABC, including HBO’s Def Poetry Jam and Versus & Flow.

Why is a spoken word poet guesting on a health & wellness podcast?

Because wellness isn’t just diet, exercise and yoga mats. Someone who is truly “well” exudes positivity, soul, spirit, honesty, service, selflessness and integrity from their very core. IN-Q represents a life fully expressed – spreading a message of healing, love and positivity in service to others. Not only is IN-Q a man living his most authentic self, he is what I would call the very definition of health.

On January 15, for one night only, IN-Q will be performing at the beautiful Mark Taper Forum in downtown Los Angeles. It is going to be an epic evening (I’ll definitely be there), so if you are in town that day I strongly suggest you pick up tickets now — it will definitely sell out and it’s a one time deal not to be missed. For tickets and additional information on this one time performance, go to*

If you can’t make the show, then this podcast is the next best thing. IN-Q is a special guy — touched in a very real, tactile way. I aspire to this man’s openness, grace, and attitude of gratitude. It’s an honor to spend time with him and I am so pleased to bring his message to you once again. An incredible storyteller, his message will leave you reevaluating your priorities, rethinking your path and ultimately indelibly changed.

As the man himself just might say: get excited for now and question everything.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the conversation. Let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Peace + Plants,

    This is a voice our world needs more of.. Just Beautiful. IN-Q has the gift of mindfulness.. being able to steady the stream of thought, channeling the divine’s voice. Staying present, trusting the most descriptive words continue flowing through his channel, painting replica images in the listener’s mind. It’s like he sees the things right there in front of us, but only he can really see them.. until he tells us about them.. then we remember…

    I finished listening to this podcast today. I felt like In-Q transmitted something energetically to me through your conversation, because afterward I was completely inspired to write. I don’t think I’ve tried to write poetry since…elementary school? But I pulled out a blank journal and these words just started flowing out of me. It was beautiful and very healing. I’m still a little choked up. Thank you both.

    What is the name of the opening, and closing, poem? Thanks! Great show…again and again (Since this is my second post of the day, I will just say I go for weeks and not listen, then sit down to work and listenandlistenandlisten. It makes mundane work sooo much better.)
