1. 567. The Intersection of Mindfulness, Micro Dosing and Sports Performance w/ Lauren Alderfer Darian Parker 52:44

In this conversation, Lauren Alderfer discusses the intersections of mindfulness, performance enhancement and micro-dosing.

Lauren Alderfer comes to the world of microdosing and the use of entheogens through the lens of her many decades of meditation. She understands the powerful lived experience of non duality to enhance one’s presence. Deepening a connection to one’s essential nature, living with ever greater loving-kindness and wisdom, and sharing in the interconnectedness of nature and all sentient beings can be equally powerful experiences when approaching microdosing and entheogens through the heart of mindfulness. She is the award-winning mindfulness author of Teaching from the Heart of Mindfulness. She also wrote the popular children’s book, Mindful Monkey, Happy Panda as well as other Buddhist stories.
