E85: Psychology of Flow & Breaking Through the Resistance with Aubrey Marcus
This week Peak Performance Expert Aubrey Marcus joins Dr. Kelly to talk about the psychology of FLOW, including the techniques that he has used & helped others develop to break through the resistance and follow their passion.
In this talk, Aubrey shares some tidbits from his daily wellness routine (like waking up using blue light earbuds!) as well as his experiences with Ayahausca and psychedelic planet medicine, including this new film!
Aubrey also shares what inspired him to found ONNIT, and explains why certain supplements work to enhance brain & body functioning. We also discuss techniques for reaching states of altered consciousness and maximizing flow, including active meditation and more. Aubrey believes in using multiple modalities to achieve maximum flow.
In the theme of ‘breaking through the resistance,’ Dr. Kelly and Aubrey wrap up the show discussing their experiences with open relationships and loving more than one person simultaneously (it’s not easy, but it can definitely be worth it!)
Aubrey Marcus founded Onnit Labs in 2010 as a nutritional supplements brand based on a holistic health philosophy he calls Total Human Optimization.

Inspired by his lifelong experience as a multisport athlete — as well as his background in ancient philosophy — his goal was to create a company that empowered people to achieve their fullest human potential. With the launch of the firm’s flagship supplement Alpha BRAIN in 2011, Onnit was born.
