This week Pedram Shojai welcomes guest Lisa Garr of The Aware Show. On the program Lisa opens up about a near-death experience she had following a bicycling accident. The experience resulted in a traumatic brain injury. She discusses how through EEG and neuro-feedback she was able to make a full recovery. She went on to find her purpose in communication messages of positive growth and change on the radio and through the internet. How did this lead to her discovering light therapy? What is light therapy? What can treat and has it been shown to be effective? Are there any side effects to light therapy?

The brain is an interesting organ. We all have one, we use it every day, we might even think about it from time to time, but in reality it sits in darkness within our skulls. Have you ever thought about how you might analyze the activity within your brain? This week on The Urban Monk, Pedram Shojai welcomes Bill Harris of Centerpointe Research Institute. What neuro-technologies are available to study the brain? What do we know about how the brain functions? What are brainwaves and what types exist? Are certain brainwaves associated with certain types of activities? And is it possible to train and change our brain?

The subject of women’s menstruation is not often spoken, and when it is, it’s quietly framed as “her monthly cycle”, “her period” or “having lady time.” On this episode of The Urban Monk, Pedram Shojai welcomes Stasha who is a certified holistic health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She is on a mission to trash that taboo of silence, bring menstruation front and center, and use it as a foundation for success in both business and personal life. Rather than just dealing with painful periods, Stasha works with her cycle. What are the phases of a full menstrual cycle and how can we all adjust our schedules to work with it for a full productive and happy life rather than falling victim?

So many people today are involved in entrepreneurial businesses. The demands of time and energy to operate and work in an entrepreneurial business can be endless and exhausting. And when you succeed and get there, or fail to get there, what’s left of you, the original you? Where did all that time go? Do you even remember the source of your identity, where your sense of self-worth came from? Joining the conversation on The Urban Monk is Matt Lowman who has known the exuberance and the emptiness of entrepreneurial victory and loss. Talking to Pedram Shojai, he now wants to advise others on how to stay whole.

Per Bristow has been voice coaching Hollywood’s elite for years. His unconventional approach really stems from roots in something very deep. Per’s take on this revolves around letting go of outcome and finding a relationship with “play” again. It’s ok to be off key – just sing.

Some of us might make a strong effort to eat clean foods. We may try to eat organic and bump up the ratio of fruits and vegetables in our diet but as we do so do we think about the actual origins of those foods? Soil expert Molly Haviland joins Pedram Shojai on The Urban Monk to discuss how caring for soil can have great affects on the environment. When it comes to crops, what role does the health of the soil play? What makes soil healthy? How does soil composition affect the crops that are grown in it?

In this follow-up interview with Lt. Col. Scott Mann, we delve deeper into the wounds of the Middle East and how we can look at fixing this situation. Part of it is a battle of ideology. Mann's opinion is that certain elements can't and won't change because they believe they're ushering in the apocalypse. Not much sense in having a rational conversation with that it seems.

What about women and elders? How can we strengthen communities? How can we learn more about the local history of the places we have issues?

We covered a lot of topics and, as a former Green Beret, he brought some powerful insights back from 14 years of war he has waged against terror.
