Guest: Mona Sobhani, PhD, a cognitive neuroscientist, researcher, and author.

In a Nutshell: When we’re faced with experiences or ideas that challenge our concepts of who we are and what we know, we have two choices. We can try to ignore what’s happening. Or we can embrace major life transitions, learn from them, and grow.

On today’s show, Mona Sobhani shares her personal journey of transformation and explains how she learned to open herself up to new possibilities.

.Mona Sobhani and I discuss:

  • Why we shouldn’t let one thing define our identities.
  • How to embrace change rather than run from it.
  • Why your ego is not your enemy as you try to understand the root of your behaviors.
  • How body awareness can help us get in touch with our feelings and release emotions.
  • Neuroscientific principles that can lead to transformation.
  • How the universe “whispers before it screams” when we need to make a change.
  • Staying curious and fighting resistance.
