Our very special guest on this episode is Dr Michael Kimball


Dr. Mike Kimball is a mindfulness trainer, archaeologist, and self-described "contemplative anthropologist" at the University of Northern Colorado. His wide-ranging experience includes conducting archaeological research in Western Europe, exploring ruins of the Maya Civilization, and studying ancient Native American rock art in the United States. 

He has also collaborated with Southeast Asian and East African refugees on intersecting their cultural heritage with their new homes in the US. 

Moreover, as a dedicated mindfulness practitioner, trained in both Western secular and Buddhist meditation traditions, Mike also rigorously investigates culture's influence on his own perceptions, biology and behaviour. 


In his latest book, Ethnowise, he shares his discoveries and pro tips for hacking what he calls our "cultural Matrix" to build cultural intelligence within individuals, teams, and beyond. What if you had The Guide Book for Cultural Intelligence.
