Finding the Flow State & Stealing FireJamie Wheal
In this episode of the Gnostic Warrior Radio Show and Podcast, I interview the Executive Director of the Flow Genome Project and author of the new best-seller, Stealing Fire, Jamie Wheal.
He is one of the world’s most innovative experts on the neurophysiology of human performance and he has worked with top athletes, scientists, artists, business professionals, and Fortune 500 companies to help map the genome of the peak-performance state known as Flow.
Flow is when you reach optimal states of consciousness where you are totally absorbed in your task, time flies where you feel and perform your best. It’s the moment of total absorption. Time speeds up or slows down like a freeze-frame effect. Mental and physical ability go through roof, and the brain takes in more information per second, processing it more deeply.”
Jamie explains how people are using flow and these rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition. His goal is a revolution of consciousness that can be spread across the world via open source sharing so we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.
His book, Stealing Fire is for the Prometheans of the World, AKA the Fire Stealers–crazy ones, misfits, rebels and trouble-makers–this book is about you and your crew. Complete with a forgotten origin story dating back to the mists of prehistory, filled with wild-ass anecdotes ranging from the CIA and DARPA, to Burning Man and Biohackers, if you already know what you’re part of, this is your manifesto, your tribal history, and your user manual, all in one.
