Episode #749



Our post-modern culture has largely dismissed faith and spirituality as a collective pursuit.

Personal beliefs should be just that—personal. Unique to each individual—and preferably secular

But today’s guest has a different perspective. He argues that the future of humanity rests upon finding practical spiritual solutions to help solve the many problems we face. What we need is a total spiritual revolution—what Rainn Wilson calls a Soul Boom.

You might be wondering why the guy best known for portraying Dwight Schrute on the hit television series “The Office” is here to wax lyrical about matters spiritual—but the truth is that Rainn is a deep reservoir of wisdom who has more than earned a position of authority on matters ethereal.

First, he is the co-founder of the media company SoulPancake, which focused on content related to the human experience and positive social change. He co-hosted the podcast Metaphysical Milkshake with Reza Azlan, a must-listen series that dives into the deep end of topics religious and mystical. And he is the author of the new book “Soul Boom: Why We Need A Spiritual Revolution” which is all about addressing today’s greatest issues with faith.

“To transform the Earth and move humanity forward, we need a spiritual revolution.”


Today we discuss Rainn’s Bahá’í faith, his conception of the divine, the importance of finding meaning in life, the positives (and negatives) of religious belief, how to build a movement of change, finding the sacred in our everyday lives, and why the solutions to the existential problems we currently face require a spiritual revolution.

In case you missed it, be sure to check out my episode with Rainn and Reza back on episode 633.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the audio version streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

This conversation is an equal parts fun and profound call to awaken our spiritual selves and engage in a deeper, more meaningful experience of the world around us. I hope you learn as much as I did.
