Description

What are the upper limits of human potential?
At the intersection of flow states, mystical experiences, peak performance, and psychedelics lies a mysterious space of possibility. In Mapping Cloud Nine, best-selling author and award-winning journalist Steven Kotler takes us on a heady thrill ride through the history of human potential - and how what we’ve learned so far might unlock even greater levels of creativity, performance, and meaning in our lives.

From Nietzsche to now - a tour of human consciousness

In this six-part audio program, Kotler bridges science and spirituality to explore how our understanding of peak experiences has evolved over time - from early inquiries into altered and mystical states; to the birth of positive psychology and research on high performers; to pioneering studies on meditation and near-death experiences; and into current explorations of psychedelics, flow states, and technological breakthroughs.

A brilliant synthesizer and gifted storyteller, Kotler paints a compelling portrait of our greatest human potential, inspiring us to leverage this growing body of research and step into new realms of possibility.

Highlights

  • The evolutionary impulse for altered states of mind - psychedelics throughout time
  • The neurobiology of flow states, mystical experiences, and hallucinations
  • The spiritual path and the high-performance path - are they one and the same?
  • Altered states lead to altered traits - the next wave of consciousness hacking
  • Why bridging the gap between science and spirituality leads to even greater breakthroughs
  • How you can leverage flow states for a more meaningful - and interesting - life

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Absolutely incredible

If you’re at all interested in psychology, flow, neuroscience, or peak performance, do yourself a favor and listen to this audiobook. It’s an absolutely fascinating and honest look at where we’re currently at in terms of real data and research in these subjects. I plan on listening to it again at least 10 times.

Absolutely blown away.

This is more of a podcast than a book

This is more of a podcast than a book. A guy talking say right every other sentence.

I had high hopes for this book but...

I really had high hopes for this book but it is terrible! The author should also not be doing this in his own (extremely annoying) voice. Sorry, but I just can't sit through this. The information is so jumbled that, for me, no points hit home at all. I just cannot listen to this anymore.

Brain Candy

Mystical experiences meet science and have a baby - that's my nature and the nature of this book. I love it! Listened twice in a row - that's the first for me :)

Steven Kotler is the GOAT

Steven provides an innovative timeline for the comparison of flow psychology and philosophy. This timeline funnels into spiritual ideology and the more recent studies being done on altered states. This audiobook combines the knowledge that was presented in his books: The Rise of Superman, Bold, Abundance, and Stealing Fire, with an added bonus at the end (spirituality addressed by science), 100000% Worth the price of admission.

Best book yet on the subject!

I love what Steven Kotler has done for the science behind Flow. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject. I've read all of his books on Flow and this is the best one yet!

Extremely educational!

I’m glad I listened to this book, and I learned a lot of very interesting things about the history of psychology and neuroscience research.

The real gems of the book are chapters 38-46, where you finally learn how to apply the information leading up to them to your own life should you chose.

I most definitely have to re-listen to this book multiple times because this amazing scientist/author has so much to teach us and he’s so excited about this information that he’s speaking so fast that if you’re not listening carefully, you’ll miss important examples. I’ll admit it did take me a while to get used to his pronunciation of the “H” at the beginning of words (or lack thereof—lol).

When it finished, I felt like the author was in the middle of something big and I was left feeling a sense of incompletion. If that makes sense.

Will totally listen again and recommend—and buy more of his books! Haha!

this is not a book

this is not a book.
it's a well written series of episodes.

having read kotler's prior books, found only 20% of new ideas.

on the plus side, I appreciated his clear and compelling summary of how psichology faced the question of flow.
