Nate Rifkin has prospered by combining ancient mystical practices with modern strategies for living. When he began his inner journey, Nate was suicidal and drank alcohol every morning to get through the day. He dropped out of college, went broke, bankrupt, and even worked on street corners waving around a sign to afford rent and food. Nate learned a little-known spiritual discipline that helped him transform his thoughts, emotions, and financial life. This practice from the Daoist mystical tradition even helped him find love.
Today, as a leader in the field of business, he has written marketing campaigns that have generated tens of millions of dollars in sales. His newly published book, The Standing Meditation, is highly reviewed and has already hit the #1 New Release in multiple categories on Amazon. In today’s interview, we delve into the Standing Meditation and how we can use this powerful simple practice to improve our bones, overall health and enhance our lives.
