Show Notes

On today’s show, we have a conversation about his story. Brett has experienced some amazing things in his life and we only touch the surface in this interview. He shares about his journey with music, being diagnosed and almost dying from cancer, and the healing journey that brought him to where he is now. Brett’s an amazing guy and I’m stoked that he came on the show. He’s also a good friend and brother and he’s helped me heal in more ways than one.

Some of the things we talk about are:

- How Brett and I met and some of our adventures

- His initial love and passion for music from a young age

- Brett’s battle with cancer and trying to heal with Western medicine

- How ceremony saved his life and brought his family together

- The things that inspired him to go to college and become a scientist

- The difference between responsibilities and relationships

- The awesomeness of birds and the holistic nature of change

- Life isn’t just about ourselves, it’s about the bigger picture

- Family has the power to bring us together, even with different worldviews

- Linear vs cyclical perspectives and change through paradigm shifts

- How worldview influences individual and social perceptions of science
