0304: Steve Pavlina on Subjective Reality & Non-Monogamy (Part 2)

Steve Pavlina and Rachelle after skydiving

UPDATE: In the intervening years since this interview came out, my old podcast, Aravinda Show, has been retired. To listen to this classic episode, see the episode list over at the podcast page →

Steve and I return today with an even juicier deep-dive, this time into beliefs-as-lenses, ethical non-monogamy, and subjective reality.

The challenge: When we internalize beliefs, we attach our identity to that perspective, causing all kinds of problems.

Featured in USAToday and The Guardian, Steve’s articles on positive habits, time management, polyphasic sleep, subjective reality, ethical non-monogamy, and so much more, have impacted millions of people’s lives.

You don’t have to hear the 1st part first, but you may want to. In this second part, the conversation flows into a deep discussion on how to have a conscious non-monogamous relationship, built on a strong foundation of communication and trust. We talk about healthy boundaries, avoiding common mistakes, and even tie in some wisdom from Khalil Gibran. And the conversation continues in the after show, now streaming, for FREE, on my Patreon page here →
