Why Food Is The First Portal To Self-Actualization — Miami Live Q & A

By July 6, 2017May 23rd, 2019No Comments

“We’re at a very critical moment right now. There’s a lot of crazy stuff happening around us and it takes all the more awareness and composure to ground yourself and to be able to be connected to that gut intuition, to stand your ground and understand who you are and what it is that you’re here to do.”

Rich Roll 

Four and a half years ago, I hit record and spoke my first words on this podcast from a cavernous warehouse on Kauai’s North Shore. An experiment without much forethought, it was at best a simple creative outlet. Without attachment or any expectations whatsoever, I wasn’t sure there would even be an episode 2.

Today I celebrate 300 episodes. About 500 hours spent going deep with the most compelling minds I could find. It’s a catalog I am extremely proud of. A catalog I wish I had access to guide my younger years. A catalog I hope has brought you guidance, perspective, inspiration and education to inform your journey we call life.


Today I celebrate by taking a moment to reflect back on the journey with my audio producer Jason Camiolo.

Then we launch into a Q&A that was recorded before a small live audience on July 14, 2017 at Sacred Space in Miami at Julie’s This Cheese Is Nuts!* book launch event.

In recognition of the 300 episode milestone and to honor you, the listener, I am giving away 10 signed copies of Finding Ultra* as well as a handful of #BuildTheHouse t-shirts. To be eligible to win, simply take a screen shot of your favorite RRP episode and share it on social media with a brief explanation of why you found that particular episode meaningful. Tag your post with #RRP300 and we will select the winners one week from today (July 14, 2017). Just a small way for me to say thank you — because without you, this beautiful thing would not exist.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the exchange.

Peace + Plants,
