The Genius Life 73: Menstrual Blood Face Masks, Urine Therapy, and Sunning Your Butthole | Ra of Earth

The Genius Life 73: Menstrual Blood Face Masks, Urine Therapy, and Sunning Your Butthole | Ra of Earth

Ra is the owner of Kriya of the Week, which offers a short daily practice for people to get into meditation and working with their energy. It is based on an accumulation of techniques from his many years of gym ownership, a lifetime of competitive athletics, studies in psychology, and multidimensional energetic techniques from around the world. This interview shouldn't be taken as an endorsement for Ra's practices—which come from ancient traditional medicine rather than science. I leave the listener to decide what to take away from this rather interesting conversation off the beaten path.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • How a wellness-obsessed hockey player from the nation's second-most unhealthy state moved to California and reinvented himself as Ra of Earth.

  • What Ra learned by spending most of his day on the beach under the California sun instead of sweating it out for hours at the gym and still performing at a competitive athletic level.

  • The numerous traditions, observations, serendipitous encounters, and entities that inform Ra's controversial regimens and practices.

  • Ra's philosophy of yoga and how he sees the body as a piece of technology akin to a smartphone.

  • How ice baths, breath work, fasting, hormesis, and self-flagellation break us down to build us up.

  • And so much more!

The Genius Life 57: How Psychedelics Might Fix Our Mental Health Crisis | Michael Pollan

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • More than four percent of the world's population live with depression, with women, young people, and the elderly most prone to its disabling effects.

  • An estimated 322 million people suffered depressive disorders in 2015—a rise of about 18 percent in a decade.

  • Depression is the single largest contributor to years lived with disability.

  • A further 250 million people suffer from anxiety disorders, including phobias, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive behavior, and PTSD.

  • How research into psychedelics is finally advancing after decades in legal limbo to help all of these people.

  • And much more!

Nordic Naturals makes my favorite fish oil on the market—in fact, I like it so much I chew the capsules! Its high-potency products are tested for purity, are always super fresh, and always contain the superior triglyceride form of EPA and DHA fatty acids—equivalent to what you'd find in food! Check out Nordic Naturals here!
