This week 9/11 survivor, and author Kushal M. Choksi joins me to discuss his new book "ON A WING AND A PRAYER" which chronicles his narrow escape from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and the emotional journey towards redemption that followed. 

In this episode you will learn:

  • How experiencing trauma and tragedy can make you more receptive to new spiritual paths
  • How meditation helps you find the courage to follow your passion and stay resilient in the face of challenges
  • How to move beyond the pressures of social conditioning and follow your inner voice 
  • Why embracing spirituality doesn’t meant that you must forfeit your ambitions


"When I meditated for the first time..I experienced that calm, that peace, that probably I was looking for without realizing I had been looking for [it]" 

"Just two weeks of [meditation] practice reduced the release of cortisol in the body by almost 56%, increased the production of serotonin, and increased the quality of sleep by almost 200%"

"Life becomes a game when you learn to shake hands with this helps us chop the patterns, the conditioning of the helps us embrace the reality as is, and walk our way to a different ending"
