I’m delighted to announce that I will be joined on Thursday, July 24th (not at our usual time — note this will be at 5 PM Pacific) by the remarkable biologist, author and speaker Bruce Lipton for a conversation we’ve titled “Learning to Walk My Talk: How Quantum Biology Changed My Life”.
I had the opportunity to sit and talk with Bruce before, and a few days after, he finished a in-person speaking event (packed with over 200 people, rousing, and highly inspiring) in Oakland, California last week. We talked about many things, but I was particularly struck by his personal story—of how he, essentially, learned to “walk his talk”.
As a cell biologist who participated in some of the experiments whose implications gave birth to the emergence of epigenetics, Bruce was one of the first people to realize that science was emphatically disproving a mechanistic view of life. The “brain” of the cell, he found, is not in the nucleus but in the membrane, and it is largely responding to the condition of the cell environment.
As he got deeper and deeper into the science, he realized that many factors can have big effects on the state of the field environment in which living cells operate. Most significantly, he saw that our subconscious attitudes and beliefs have enormous effects.
To Bruce, grounded in a strictly materialistic paradigm, this was an earth-shaking insight. And he soon discovered that there was no way he would be permitted to pursue its implications within his role as a tenured professor in the medical school at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. So he resigned, and began speaking about it.
That was the beginning of him changing his thinking, or his “talk”. But very soon, he was forced to confront the fact that his life didn’t reflect the revolutionary implications of his scientific insights. This led him to a dramatic moment — an epiphany in whichhis heart opened, and his mental insights began to become the basis for his very way of living his life, moment-to-moment.
Bruce is an enormously loving, happy, charming man—a tremendously compelling and enjoyable speaker. How did he get that way? I realized, THIS is what interested me the most, and what I think most Beyond Awakening listeners will find most useful.
So I suggested that we make this the theme of our conversation — how Bruce began to “walk his talk”, and I’m delighted to report that he agreed. Although he has talked about this briefly on other occasions, this will be the first time that he will focus on this story, tell it in detail, and allow me to examine the key turning points that have made the real difference in transforming his life.
Most discussions of new scientific information compartmentalize it in the domain of the “It” — factual, objective, information. But an integral understanding of reality sees clearly that this is a Four-Quadrant affair — in which the “I”, the “We” and the “It” are inseparably interconnected. Bruce is a beautiful living embodiment of this principle, and I’m excited to explore it with him.
So I invite you to join us and listen in, and perhaps ask your own questions. Bruce and I will be talking at a special time, on Thursday, July 24th. May it be an opportunity for us all to “walk our talk” with new power and authenticity!
