My life mission is to take the philosophy of awakening out of the mystical ghetto, where it has been kept alive over the centuries, and into mainstream culture. I want to make these deep ideas accessible by showing that changing how we think transforms how we feel. I want to make it fashionable to be Deep Awake.
That’s why I started calling myself a ‘stand-up philosopher’. I decided to reinvigorate the ancient tradition in which philosophers were performers who went from place to place, challenging people’s ‘common sense’ assumptions and opening their minds to new ways of seeing the world.
These days philosophy is seen as dry and academic, but to me philosophy is big fun. After all, what could be more entertaining than to have someone so utterly transform your understanding of life that you find yourself experiencing a completely new reality? Now, that’s magic!
I’ve performed stand-up philosophy around the world, including London, New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Mexico City, Tokyo, Zagreb, Prague, Amsterdam, Johannesburg, Maui … and soon I hope a town near YOU!
