Episode 229: Embracing Meditation With Jeff Warren & Organic Soy Isn't Bad For You

Dec. 31, 2017

Soy has gotten a bad rap—and while it may not be a perfect food, it's far from the villain most nutritional experts have made it out to be. On this segment, Tony and I review some of the major myths around soy and why you don't need to worry. Especially if you're avoiding GMO or overly processed soy products. Yes, that includes you men! Find out why soy doesn't turn men into women or give women breast cancer on this informative segment. Next, we have my very special guest Jeff Warren whose a former journalist for the New York times and a best-selling author. Jeff wrote The Head Trip and is co-author of the new book Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. He is also the founder of the Consciousness Explorers Club. Jeff shares his journey from journalism to writing books and focusing on meditation. Listen in as we try to understand how the mind works and what it means to have a healthy mind.

[FEATURED GUESTS] About Jeff Warren Jeff designs and teaches meditation-related courses, retreats and weekly explorations, both online at 10% Happier, and in-person at Toronto's Consciousness Explorers Club and various other venues around the world. Ten years ago, he wrote The Head Trip, a book about the science and changing experience of consciousness. Thinking that much about the mind deranged him but meditation gave him perspective. Jeff is launching his second book, in collaboration with ABC News anchor & 10% Happier author Dan Harris, which is a follow-up to 10% Happier titled Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics: A 10% Happier How-To Guide that will be released on December 26th. The book explores why -- even as meditation moves from weird and 'culty' into something embraced by the mainstream-- most people *still* aren't meditating. About Anthony Flores, or "T" as Kimberly affectionately refers to him: He is a long-time friend of hers who, after graduating from Stanford University, began researching and writing professionally in the health space full-time. He has a passion for natural health, especially Beauty Detox, and loves to share exciting new studies and insights he learns with Kimberly and the community!
