EPISODE 7 OUT NOW: "Transmuting Disease Into a Doorway to Wholeness" with Dr. Adam Rizvi
About this month’s guest
Dr. Adam Rizvi has spent his life pursuing a unique combination of medicine and spirituality.
He is an MD physician with specialty training in Neurology and Critical care medicine, a board certified Neurologist, and a co-founder of the Rizvi Brain Institute (RBI), a family-run clinic of expert healthcare professionals dedicated to reversing cognitive decline and helping people attain optimal cognitive performance. Adam’s education includes a Neurology residency at the University of Minnesota and a Fellowship in Neurocritical care at Stanford University, as well as a Comparative Religion major from the University of Rochester, NY.
In addition to his professional medical background and university education, Adam has studied with spiritual masters from several of the world’s mystical traditions, and dedicates himself to a daily spiritual practice and an ongoing study of ancient and modern philosophical teachings from around the world. This unique combination of life experiences, professional practice, and studies informs Adam’s approach to treating patients and infuses his work and teachings with a wisdom that comes from personal spiritual experience and growth.
Due to his work in Critical Care, Dr. Rizvi has been at the bedside of what he estimates as more than 1000 patients at the moment of their death, offering him a unique perspective on death, the process of dying, and its significance. Adam’s passion is to help us remember what it is to be whole and know that we are innately perfect, as this redefines our approach to health and healing.
We covered: the relationship we have to disease and death, why underneath it all we are whole and disease doesn’t mean we’re broken, symbolism in how diseases manifest, how we are simultaneously mortal and immortal, preparing for death, talking about death with children, Adam’s out of body experiences (OBEs) and how they influenced his approach to patient care, the tremendous power of the mind over the body, to what extent we can lean on our subjective experiences to understand the nature of reality, and much more!
