402 Science and Spiritualism With Spiritual Atheist Author Nick Seneka Jankel

February 18, 2019

Nick Seneka Jankel is a Cambridge-educated scientist who, very reluctantly at first, was called to become a spiritual teacher. He struggled for many years with how to reconcile his profound experiences of the transformational power of spirituality and meditation with his belief in science and reason (and his disdain for superstitions of any kind). Realizing millions of people who identify as “spiritual not religious” – around 25% of the US population today – struggle with the same thing, he has spent the last few years writing a book that tells of his quest to unite science and wisdom into a rigorous and radical life philosophy that ensures we can heal ourselves, transform our problems and thrive in life, in love, and in leadership. Nick is not a traditional spiritual teacher and transformational coach. He has taught at the business schools of Yale & Oxford, spoken at No.10 Downing Street by invite of the Prime Minister, contributed to The Economist and The Guardian, and was a TV host on a network show for the BBC. He has also been a guest on Hay House Radio, spoken at Google HQ, headlined at Conscious Life Expo in LA and shared his ideas on science and spirituality at Aspen Ideas Festival.
